About Christie's and Christie's International Real Estate
Established in London more than 240 years ago by James Christie, the auction house today is a renowned international organization that conducts some of the most important auctions in the world. The Christie’s brand exudes quality and prestige, while honoring the traditional values established throughout its illustrious history.
Drawing upon the success as one of the world’s oldest art auction houses, Christie’s implemented an innovative real estate venture in 1995. Integrating centuries of experience with a hand-selected network of talented real estate brokers, the company was formed to satisfy the lifestyle requirements of discerning clientele. The marketing of fine art and high-end real estate proved to be a natural combination, resulting in a real estate marketing powerhouse driven by the passion and success of the Christie’s name and the local connections and expertise of highly qualified brokers.
