The Christie’s Conference

Last week, Jana and I journeyed to Rockefeller Center in NYC to attend the Christie’s Northeast Conference. Joined by Russ Neumann, we had ample opportunity to learn about the Christie’s Bespoke marketing program; unique advertising avenues for us as Affiliates; how the art market mirrors the real estate market; and what interior design brings to a home.

Along with some fabulous networking, perhaps the most important nugget of information we took away from the day was that the luxury market is slowly gaining ground, and is being particularly influenced by investment from markets such as China and Russia. Armed with new contacts, new information and new resolve, we came back energized and ready to get to work helping put buyers and sellers together in meaningful transactions.
