Affiliation with Christie's International Real Estate
“Extraordinary art, exclusive homes”
Christie’s International Real Estate is the only global reach network run by a world leading art auction house. It is the brand that defines luxury real estate worldwide, with $115bn annual sales and offices in 46 countries.
Christie’s extends its influence through an invitation-only network of affiliates. This is composed of the world’s most proven and qualified specialists in the luxury residential sector whom Christie’s evaluate as the market leaders in their territories.
Christie’s select these organisations to represent their name, culture and standards. It is not a franchise, as is the case with Coldwell Banker or Sotheby’s, but rather a close working collaboration.
There are only 140 global affiliates, and just five in France. Maxwell-Baynes Real Estate has had the privilege of being one of them since 2010, designated by Dan Conn CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate as “Selected by Christie’s International Real Estate as the market leader for Bordeaux, Dordogne and Charente”. In April 2019, Maxwell-Baynes received an award by Christie's International Real Estate of " 2018 Affiliate of the year", for outstanding performance.
How it works in our client’s favour
We operate symbiotically to the point that we are often identified as "Christie's Bordeaux", a link that brings unique benefits to our clientele, both buyers and sellers. Many customers come via Christie’s and with Christie’s recommendation.
In turn, Christie’s International Real Estate has access to properties that no-one else can reach and which Maxwell-Baynes Real Estate has a mandate to market. Given Christie’s status, such residences can be rare jewels that would otherwise be hidden from buyers.
