Northern New Jersey Affiliate expands into new territories and commences operations as Christie’s International Real Estate Northern New Jersey

With the global gateway of New York City nearby, New Jersey appeals to international homeowners seeking expansive estates on generous acreage and a less urban lifestyle

New York, New York (July 12, 2019) Christie’s International Real Estate, the real estate arm of Christie’s and the world’s leading expert on luxury residential real estate, is pleased to announce its Northern New Jersey Affiliate has expanded further into New Jersey, and under a new form of collaboration will operate as Christie’s International Real Estate Northern New Jersey. Owner Ilija Pavlovic also recently expanded under the Christie’s International Real Estate brand in Westchester and Hudson Valley, New York. These moves more closely align the brokerage with Christie’s, the world’s leading art business, to serve New York City metropolitan area real estate clients.

Mr. Pavlovic has opened 11 brokerages since the beginning of 2017 and today serves clients in Bergen, Morris, Somerset, Passaic, Hudson, Warren, Union, Essex, and Sussex counties as well as northern Hunterdon county, with all offices achieving dramatic growth in market share in their respective offices. These results earned the company Affiliate of the Year recognition at both the 2018 and 2019 Christie’s International Real Estate Global Owners Conferences in Buenos Aires and Paris respectively. 

Dan Conn, CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate, said: “My responsibility is to entrust our branded brokerages to those proven most capable of being a standard bearer for the esteemed Christie’s brand. Ilija not only embraces our corporate culture but has successfully leveraged its marketing power by participating in Christie’s and other luxury lifestyle events to the full benefit of his real estate clients. I am excited to see the Northern New Jersey market flourish under Ilija’s leadership.”

In January 2018, Christie’s International Real Estate opened its first company brokerage in New York City—with an office in the prime gallery space of Christie’s North American headquarters at Rockefeller Plaza. The intent was to best serve Christie’s clients directly in the strategically important tri-state area, including Northern New Jersey. The success of the New York brokerage experience was the major determining factor in expanding this branded brokerage strategy to Westchester and Hudson Valley in New York and now Northern New Jersey with Mr. Pavlovic.

Mr. Pavlovic said, “I am delighted for the opportunity to deliver to our customers the next level of service and the ultimate Christie’s experience. This new venture sets us apart in our reach in the tri-state metro area and represents a further assurance that our home sellers and buyers are receiving the highest industry standards in brokerage service, both in the marketing of properties and the expert guidance provided to buyers in a complex market environment.”
