Christie’s Charlotte Homes For Sale & Real Estate

Selling the Luxury Lifestyle

By Lee Steinour – Digital Marketing Manager

When it comes to selling high-end homes real estate agents know buyers are searching for a lifestyle.

Location, Location, Location…and Lifestyle

Selling a home has always been about the location, and in many cases, the location leads to a specific lifestyle, for example, “Luxurious Lake Living.” Charlotte is home to three popular lakes – Lake Norman, Lake Wylie and Mountain Island Lake. Home prices can approach 10 million. High-Quality Photography and Video

We work with the top photographers producing lifestyle videos – highlighting scenic lake views, saltwater spa pools, boating, water sports, and outstanding outdoor living.   Showcase in a Special Way

Sometimes an exquisite home is hidden away right in the middle of the most popular communities, drone video gives us a chance to feature what most people will never see – glorious gardens, walking trails, tennis and sports courts. Extravagant Events

We also promote our extravagant events such as the recently held Christie’s wine night at 2019 Craigmore Drive and 5403 Gorham Drive. To view more of our Lifestyle Videos visit the Ivester Jackson Christie’s Int’l Real Estate Vimeo Page.

A Conversation with Noah May – Wine Collectors’ Forum

By: Julia Mallozzi – Advertising Specialist, Graphic Design

An Evening of Fine Wine

On Thursday, June 1st, IvesterJackson Distinctive Properties collaborated with Christie’s Wine to host a Wine Collectors Forum discussing the characteristics of Old World vs. New World Pinot Noirs. The wine discussion was led by Noah May, Christie’s Head of Sale, Wine and Spirits. Rick Moeser, Christie’s International Real Estate Executive Director, also presented a global real estate market update.

The event was attended by over 100 of the region’s leading wine collectors and property owners and  was held at two of Charlotte’s flagship estates: 2019 Craigmore Drive and 5402 Gorham Drive.  A continuous shuttle ran throughout the evening in Charlotte’s prestigious Pellyn Wood neighborhood, enabling guests to taste great wines, sample gourmet offerings from Reid’s,  and tour both fantastic properties.

A Conversation with Noah May

Noah May, Christie’s Head of Sale, Wine and Spirits, held a phenomenal discussion comparing European wine with American wine. There were four wines at the event for tasting and as part of the discussion: Old World Chardonnay, Old World Pinot Noir, New World Chardonnay, and New World Pinot Noir.IMG_5415

Noah joined Christie’s London Wine Department in 2007, after graduating from the University of Leeds with an honors degree in English Literature and Philosophy. Mr. May has been involved in a number of high-profile wine auctions in Europe. In May 2013, Mr. May was awarded the British Guild of Food Writers Award for Food Writer of the Year for various publications relating to wine and gastronomy. In September 2014, Mr. May joined Christie’s New York Wine Department, where he is focused on building relationships with collectors, the sourcing of rare wine events.

Global Real Estate Update with Rick Moeser

Following Noah’s forum, Christie’s International Real Estate Executive Director, Rick Moeser, gave a global luxury real estate market update. Rick discussed the current worldwide real estate trends and some recent breaking records, including the news that 10 properties which crested the 100 million dollar price mark, had sold throughout the world.IMG_5379

The first stop of the night was at 2019 Craigmore Drive. Unparalleled privacy abounds with this masterfully designed home situated in one of Charlotte’s most desirable SouthPark enclaves, Pellyn Wood. The estate is perched amidst nearly five lush acres with formal gardens, walking trails, pavilion with fireplace, tennis court and a resort salt water pool.

She brings the expertise and pragmatism to recommend necessary changes to obtain top dollar, but not overdo it with expenses that don’t provide a positive return on investment.

Wrapping Up the Night

Overall, the evening consisted of delicious fine wine, insightful discussions, and beautiful homes. By the end of the night, it seems that everyone had their own preference on which wine they found the most tasteful, yet, everyone still agreed that all four wines were almost equally as delicious.

This collaboration between IvesterJackson Distinctive Properties and Christie’s Wine turned out to be a lovely gathering. Thank you to everyone who attended!
