Christie’s and @properties
@properties DTW is joining the Christie’s International Real Estate network, the company announced. The brokerage, with offices in Birmingham, at 400 S. Old Woodward, Suite 100, and downtown Detroit, will become @properties Christie’s International Real Estate. @properties Christie’s International Real Estate was established in 2021 and is led by principals and Detroit natives Eric Walstrom and Alex Irrer. Headquartered in Birmingham, with an additional office in downtown Detroit, the brokerage is the number one brokerage firm in the downtown Detroit market, they said, and also number one for new construction and adaptive-reuse developments. Over the past year, they have grown their firm to 67 agents with projected 2022 sales volume of $500 million, up from $100 million in 2020. “An affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate – one of the world’s most respected luxury real estate brands – will allow us to offer an added level of service to Detroit’s high-end home buyers and sellers,” said Walstrom. “We’re honored to be associated with a brand that is so well-respected around the world, and we know the affiliation will position us well for future growth.” Walstrom said the Birmingham and Bloomfield Hills markets continue to be in high demand among luxury buyers, while the downtown Detroit market is experiencing a post-pandemic resurgence with new construction seeing record highs on a price-per-square-foot basis.
