About Christie's Great Estates
Christie's, the world's oldest fine art auction house, was established in London in 1766 by James Christie, whose friends included some of the leading artists of the time. Today, it conducts many of the most important auctions in the world.
Over the course of more than two centuries, Christie's has grown into an international organization of 119 offices in 42 countries. Each year, Christie's holds hundreds of auctions in more than 80 categories, including silver, jewelry, photography, wine, furniture, ceramics, stamps, comic books and memorabilia, and, of course, fine paintings and sculpture.
Christie's clients—those who buy and sell works of art, furniture, and antiques—often requested real estate services. After careful and thorough investigation, Christie's chose to acquire the operation of Great Estates, Inc., founded in 1987, to fulfill client demand. Christie's Great Estates, a wholly owned subsidiary of Christie's, was formed in June 1995 following this acquisition.
Christie's Great Estates is the largest international network of independent real estate brokers specializing in the sale of important properties. The network is comprised of more than 120 real estate firms with more than 500 offices and approximately 14,000 sales associates. Each real estate firm is selected for affiliation through a careful screening process that includes meeting stringent professional standards and demonstrating proven records of success in handling distinctive properties. The combined annual sales volume of all affiliate real estate companies is approximately $50 billion.
