The brokerage won the award in a competition with 136 Christie’s International Real Estate affiliates located in 45 countries. It is for excellence in marketing luxury residential property, the contribution Chestnut Park has made to the Christie’s International Real Estate network globally and the extensive collaboration between Chestnut Park and Christie’s.
Among the criteria are creativity, market leadership, passion to succeed in the international marketplace and using the Christie’s International Real Estate brand in Chestnut Park branding and marketing.
Chris Kapches, president and CEO of Chestnut Park Real Estate, says, “As a firm, we’ve made it our mission to provide every Chestnut Park agent with the best marketing tools and support to allow them to provide their clients with the most customized service and professionalism in the industry.”
