Essex, CT (PRWEB) July 14, 2010
Christie’s Great Estates, the world’s leading luxury real estate network, has awarded affiliate status to Page Taft Real Estate. The firm joins Barbara Cleary’s Real Estate Guild, David Ogilvy & Associates, The Higgins Group, Neumann Real Estate, Portfolio Properties, and Seaboard Properties to become the network’s seventh affiliate in Connecticut. Page Taft Real Estate will exclusively represent the Christie’s brand in three counties which encompass the luxury enclaves of Old Saybrook, Lyme, and Essex. Wholly owned by Christie’s, the world’s leading art business, Christie’s Great Estates is represented in more than 40 countries. Page Taft Real Estate joins this organization of carefully selected brokerages with proven records of success in both high-end property sales and exemplary client service.
“The Shoreline and Lower Connecticut River communities are distinguished by historic and important real estate,” says Neil Palmer, Chief Executive Officer of Christie’s Great Estates. “The area is further distinguished by a tradition of fine art, most notably the town of Old Lyme, which produced the first major art colony in the United States dedicated to Impressionism.”
“Page Taft Real Estate will be an integral part of our network of affiliates,” says Kathleen Coumou, Vice President of the Northeast Region, “having served the real estate needs in its area for 30 years and being known for expertise in the local market and premier service."
“I am delighted that Page Taft has been invited to join Christie's Great Estates, an elite and distinctive group of brokers from around the world,” says Karen Stephens, company president. “This affiliation will allow our luxury properties to benefit from international marketing while introducing Connecticut’s Shoreline communities to the world.”
The stretch of coastline served by Page Taft Real Estate is a landscape of small towns and inland farms dotted with quaint wineries. The area is noted for an interest in culture and the arts, a deep appreciation for open space and the outdoors, and a respect for tradition. The towns—such as Guilford, home of the oldest house in Connecticut and one of New England's finest town greens—are beautiful, graceful, and historic. Waterford boasts the Mansion at Harkness Memorial State Park, set on 230 seaside acres of sweeping lawns and spectacular formal gardens, while Lyme has only one traffic light in it 33 square miles.
