Sometimes a bird’s eye view is the best way to showcase a spectacular property, and that’s why at Ivester Jackson Christie’s International Real Estate, we are busy producing remarkable aerial videos to introduce clients’ homes to the world.
We feel some homes must be seen from above, especially if it’s a large estate which includes a pool, spa, or tennis court. We enjoy shining the spotlight on various lakefront properties too. It seems it’s really the best way for home buyers to see the lush landscaping and serene tranquil grounds – with outdoor living spaces, and spectacular sunset and island views.
Check out a few of our latest from Charlotte, Concord and Lake Norman.
We’ll begin with this gorgeous all brick Myer’s Park home, located in Charlotte.
Head up I-85 to Concord and you’ll find this European Style Custom Home.
Let’s head North on I-77 to Lake Norman in Cornelius, where you can preview 4 stunning lakefront homes in The Peninsula.
Christie’s International Real Estate has released it’s 2015 Luxury Defined White Paper.
Residential real estate is a tale of two markets – luxury and everything else.
To fully understand the luxury property market, it’s helpful to consider the following classifications.
Global Economic Hub
e.g. London; Hong Kong; New York
e.g. Austin, Texas; Durban, South Africa; Portland, Oregon
e.g. Greenwich, Connecticut; Orange County, California; New Canaan, Connecticut
‘Jet Set’ Destination
e.g. Cote d’Azur, France; Turks & Caicos Islands; Cayman Islands
e.g. The Hamptons, New York; Muskoka, Ontario, Canada; Saint Jean de Luz, France
Lifestyle & Regional Resort
e.g. Bordeaux, France; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Porto, Portugal
There is really no one definition of luxury – much like beauty, it’s in the eye of the beholder.
From $1.2 million entry level properties in Florida to the ultimate $147 million ‘weekender’ in the Hamptons, the definition of luxury changes depending on where you are.If you have the means, there’s a broad enough range across the markets for you to find your own definition of luxury.

Luxury Defined: The entry price for luxury homes varies greatly by market, from $750,000 in Durban, South Africa, to $8 million in Beverley Hills. (via Christie’s International Real Estate).
Luxury Defined: Average number of days a luxury property spent on the market (as of December 31, 2014) (via Christie's International Real Estate). Luxury Defined: Luxury homes sold fastest in Toronto and San Francisco (via Christie’s). Luxury Defined: Although prices are generally higher in the city, the world’s top 3 home sales in 2014 were not in Global Economic Hubs – and two of the top three were located in New York City’s surrounding areas (via Christie’s International Real Estate).
