Just as Christie’s represents many of the world’s most extraordinary art, Christie’s International Real Estate represents many of the world’s most extraordinary properties. “It is always a pleasure to introduce luxury homebuyers who may not be current art collectors to Christie’s as well as introduce both new and seasoned art collectors to the world of luxury real estate,” says Scott Wasner, co-founder and executive vice president of Christie’s International Real Estate Seattle.

“Christie’s affiliated global luxury brands offer significant cross-marketing opportunities that provide greater exposure to a broader luxury clientele versus what traditional real estate companies offer,” explains Kendra Ratcliff, co-founder and COO for Christie’s International Real Estate Seattle. “Collaboration across the global Christie’s network opens up more opportunities to provide superior real estate advisory services to our clients.”

A condominium home at the Four Seasons Private Residence in Seattle, which sold for an impressive $9.5 million in October 2020, is a wonderful example of how Christie’s many facets work together as a seamless team. Wasner worked closely on the marketing and sale of this property with Ellanor Roberts Notides, Christie’s Auction House’s esteemed West Coast chairman, who oversees private art collections for high-profile clients.

The property was the home of the late Virginia Wright, a prominent philanthropist and significant art collector. “The joint marketing program between the auction house and our real estate brokerage created a buzz around the property and garnered attention from high-net-worth buyers worldwide,” says Wasner. “It was an unparalleled effort which led to a near record- breaking sale price. The Wright family was very pleased not only with the sale price of the home and how quickly it sold and closed but also with the extraordinary collaboration we had with the auction house.”

“Whether a client is based in Hong Kong and searching for a vacation home in the San Juan Islands or a local client is interested in a second home in Aspen, Jackson Hole or Palm Springs, our global relationships give us extraordinary access to exclusive properties,” remarks Wasner. “You’ll receive not only our team’s passionate expertise, discretion and exceptional client service, but you’ll have 255 years of Christie’s unparalleled reputation on your side.”
