New York, New York (November 4, 2019) — Christie’s International Real Estate, the real estate arm of the world’s leading art auction house, is proud to announce the opening of a luxury residential brokerage in Denver operating under the Christie’s International Real Estate brand. The Denver brokerage is an expansion of the Christie’s International Real Estate Aspen Snowmass business, which is co-owned and managed by Alex and Laren Jansen, who founded Coastal Properties Group International, Christie’s International Real Estate’s exclusive Affiliate in the Tampa Bay area, in 2012, and the Aspen Snowmass brokerage in 2018. Success in building businesses leveraging the Christie’s brand has earned them back-to-back Affiliate of the Year honors at the Christie’s International Real Estate’s Global Conferences in Argentina and Paris.
In launching the brokerage, the Jansens engaged two top luxury real estate agents in the Denver market, Rollie Jordan and Gwenivere Snyder. Ms. Jordan and Ms., Snyder have a long-standing reputation for exceptional client service befitting of the specialist universe that other Christie’s advisors occupy in the art and luxury goods categories. Ms. Jordan has a deep understanding of the value of the connection to Christie’s having been a top agent at Christie’s International Real Estate’s former affiliate in the Denver market.
Dan Conn, CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate, said: “The Jansens understand the value of the connection to Christie’s International Real Estate and the broader Christie’s world. They built a start-up business in Tampa that grew to over US$1,000,000,000 in annual sales, and the Aspen brokerage has achieved sales volume of over US$100,000,000 since launching in October 2018.
“The Jansens are seasoned professionals in leveraging our marketing services. They understand that exceptional client care is of the utmost importance to the business and they demonstrated exceptional skill at working with our team to help clients achieve extraordinary outcomes across their entire portfolio of assets.”
Mr. Jansen added: "We are excited to bring Christie’s International Real Estate to Denver, a market that is poised for continued growth. Christie’s is bringing an unparalleled global marketing group together with unmatched client service that the Denver market should come to expect from a top tier real estate brokerage."
Ms. Jordan graduated from Denver University and never left the city. For 23 years, she has consistently ranked in the top one percent in the city’s residential sales. Now doing business in both Denver and Aspen, she is the ideal bridge for the two brokerages.
Ms. Jordan said: “I am thrilled to be on the ground floor of the Denver brokerage of the world’s top luxury real estate brokerage and growing my business to the next level with a company known for their solid understanding of global luxury. My sellers are ecstatic to have their homes marketed under the Christie’s International Real Estate brand.”
Ms. Snyder grew up in Colorado and began her real estate career in Los Angeles where she worked at three of the top firms in Beverly Hills. Her love for Colorado prompted her move back. She has consistently ranked as a top producer in Denver for six years.
Ms. Snyder said: “I chose Christie’s International Real Estate because of its luxury focus. The brand is powerful locally, nationally and internationally. I appreciate the value Alex and Laren saw in my experiences just as much I respect their accomplishments in building luxury real estate brokerages.”
Christie’s International Real Estate continues to work with its trusted affiliates to open brokerages in strategically important luxury enclaves. In addition to Aspen Snowmass, other Christie’s International Real Estate-branded brokerages have been opened recently in Seattle, Northern New Jersey, Westchester and Hudson Valley in New York, and an owned brokerage in New York City.
