NEW YORK,- The Aspen brokerage of Christie’s International Real Estate was officially introduced this week with a multi-day event involving a trip to Maroon Bells, home tours and simply enjoying the iconic mountain town..
The program culminated in a gala for more than 250 guests at the Aspen Art Museum, a masterpiece of built art with its woven exterior providing an intriguing glimpse to the building’s interiors and designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban. The gala showcased watches from Ulysse Nardin and jewelry from Pomellato, as well as a handbag from Gucci that was offered at silent auction with proceeds benefitting the museum.
Dan Conn, CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate, said: “Christie’s International Real Estate alone occupies the intersection between architecture and art, as does the Aspen Art Museum, making this the ideal venue for our launch event in Aspen. The past few days celebrated Aspen as a global destination: The area’s natural beauty, its commitment to art and culture, its fine dining and, of course, Aspen’s exceptional real estate. It is a place where Christie’s clients can enjoy a rare natural environment that offers a sense of privacy and anonymity outside of the walls of their homes.”
The Aspen Christie’s International Real Estate brokerage opened just eight months ago by Alex and Laren Jansen, and combined with Aspen Associates Realty, the Roaring Fork area’s most acclaimed and established local luxury real estate experts, shortly thereafter.
The company has already achieved significant sales successes, notably selling Castle Creek, a property featured on the cover of Christie’s International Real Estate magazine, that was listed for US$26,500,000. Homes on view last week and available for sale included Monarch Penthouse, listed for US$21,950,000, and Mountain Magic, listed for US$19,750,000.
