Christie’s International Real Estate will take center stage as the ‘Official Luxury Real Estate Partner’
NEW YORK , NY – February 1, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — The natural overlay of fine art and luxury real estate will be on prominent display February 14–18 as Christie’s International Real Estate, the world’s leading luxury real estate network, is showcased as the “Official Luxury Real Estate Partner” of Art Wynwood, sister fair to the immensely successful Art Miami. From December 4–9, record crowds entered the Art Miami pavilion in Midtown Miami and were immediately greeted by the Christie’s International Real Estate booth.
Christie’s International Real Estate’s sponsorship now extends to Art Wynwood—located within the same pavilion as the Art Miami fair—which will encompass 70 international galleries featuring emerging, cutting edge, contemporary, and modern works. The fair includes a unique display of street art, murals, pop surrealism, and similar genres.
Guests at Art Wynwood will be personally welcomed by Christie’s International Real Estate affiliates from throughout the globe, along with corporate personnel, conveying a clear message: The world’s leading art auction house is in the real estate business.
“The synergy is natural for us,” said Bonnie Stone Sellers, Chief Operating Officer of Christie’s International Real Estate. “Art and real estate are assets of passion and lifestyle. The same people who buy fine art buy luxury real estate.’’
Christie’s International Real Estate is the only network wholly owned by a fine art auction house and committed to Christie’s core values of expertise in marketing luxury assets, exemplary client service, and discretion. The network’s 120 affiliates, representing 40 countries, were carefully selected to join after demonstrating these same corporate values and leadership in high-value residential sales in their local markets.
Select properties from the Christie’s International Real Estate network of brokerages will once again be represented in the booth during Art Wynwood, be that through the property video-loop presentation, on-site distribution of Christie’s International Real Estate magazine, and/or brochure racks displaying collateral for high-profile residences.
“We appreciated Christie’s International Real Estate’s participation with Art Miami in December,” said Nick Korniloff, Director of Art Wynwood and Director and Partner of Art Miami, LLC. “As we prepare for what we anticipate to be a record-breaking week with Art Wynwood, we will once again witness the synergy between individuals interested in fine art and those interested in luxury real estate.”
