New opportunity for brokers to join LUXE Christie’s International Real Estate, the region’s market leader in luxury residential and commercial property.
Portland, Oregon (April 23, 2019) – The road to purchasing a piece of luxury residential or commercial property in Central Oregon just got a little easier. LUXE Christie’s International Real Estate, the exclusive Christie’s affiliate for Oregon and Washington, recently expanded its services to the Bend, Sisters and Redmond communities and is looking for brokers to join their handpicked team of real estate professionals.
Led by CEO and Owner Terry Sprague with Vice President Kendra Ratcliff, LUXE Christie’s is the market leader in high-end, luxury residential and commercial real estate in the region. The firm’s expansion into Central Oregon was spurred on by growing interest in the area by its global clientele as well as local and regional clients looking to purchase a second home or retirement home in the Bend area.
“This is an incredible opportunity for brokers who are looking to align themselves with the most prestigious global real estate brand,” says Vince Cortese, a principal broker and vice president of commercial and land acquisition for LUXE Christie’s. “LUXE has the unique ability to offer its clients the same expert service that Christie’s art clients have trusted for more than 250 years.”
“Central Oregon is such a hub of activity for outdoor enthusiasts,” says Terry Sprague. “Since Christie’s International Real Estate represents properties in the world’s finest resort destinations – like Aspen, Sun Valley, Jackson Hole, St. Moritz, and Lake Tahoe – it makes sense for us to expand into Bend, another world-class destination.”
“Our brokers are the face of LUXE Christie’s, so it’s important for us to have a team that exudes impeccable taste, business acumen, professionalism, and leadership in the luxury real estate industry,” explains Sprague.
Ranked number four on TripAdvisor’s “Travelers’ Choice Destinations on the Rise” in 2018, Bend is “a natural playground for adventure lovers.” With the incredible summer and winter recreation opportunities in the area, people from around the world are stopping to take notice, and interest in Bend and surrounding communities is on the rise.
“Central Oregon continues to pique the interest of luxury buyers globally and nationally – especially a growing number from Southern California – looking to enjoy the Bend area’s celebrated golf course’s, ranches, and outdoor amenities along with a full complement of fine and farm-to-table dining, craft beers, shopping, and the arts,” says Zackary Wright, executive director of Christie’s International Real Estate.
“LUXE Christie’s already has market expertise in Central Oregon,” says Kendra Ratcliff, “but opening the office in Bend allows us to address inquiries immediately, rather than from our Portland office. We are thrilled to now be able to offer Christie’s unparalleled services to local and global clients looking to purchase a home or commercial property in Central Oregon.”
