David OGILVY & Associates Joins CHRISTIE’S INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE AS Marquee SPONSOR of art southampton fair

David Ogilvy & Associates joins fellow Christie’s International Real Estate affiliates as ‘Official Luxury Real Estate Partner’ of acclaimed contemporary art fair in the Hamptons

July 6, 2015 David Ogilvy & Associates, along with Christie’s International Real Estate, the world’s leading luxury real estate network, is proud to join eight fellow affiliates in serving as the “Official Luxury Real Estate Partner” of Art Southampton. The premier international modern and contemporary art fair in Bridgehampton, NY, Art Southampton features a carefully selected group of 80 international art galleries.

Now in its fourth season, Art Southampton will take place July 9 through 13 at a new location—Nova’s Ark Project, 60 Millstone Road. The Fair offers collectors, curators, designers, and art advisors the opportunity to acquire the finest blue-chip modern and contemporary works of art from the emerging, mid-career cutting edge, Post War, and Pop eras, with a focus on design and functional art. The amenity-rich event, with an unrivaled ambiance and design, presents convenient access for residents of Long Island, New York City, and the Tri-State, as well as global travelers who frequent the Hamptons in the summer months.

Christie’s International Real Estate has served as a marquee sponsor of the internationally acclaimed Miami-based fairs Art Miami and Art Wynwood for three consecutive years.

Through its sponsorship of Art Southampton, Christie’s International Real Estate, along with David Ogilvy & Associates and other participating members of its international affiliate network will continue to enhance the natural synergy between contemporary art and luxury real estate. The connection emphasizes the unique, lifestyle-centric qualities that link an investment in a multi-million-dollar trophy property to the purchase of a world-class work of art.

“We are very pleased to participate as a top sponsor of the summer’s most important art event in the Hamptons,” said Dan Conn, Chief Executive Officer of Christie’s International Real Estate. “As noted in Luxury Defined, Christie’s International Real Estate’s annual report on the high-end residential property market, with values now exceeding $100 million, ‘trophy home’ has become the new insider term in the world of luxury residential real estate. And the type of buyer who would collect a $179.4 million Picasso like the one sold at the Christie’s recently concluded Post-War and Contemporary Art auction, is the same buyer who is interested in these one-of-a-kind homes.”

Throughout the duration of the Art Southampton fair, Christie’s International Real Estate will host an interactive booth within the Art Southampton pavilion, exhibiting luxury residential real estate offerings from around the globe. Affiliate representatives and their VIP guests will enjoy kicking off the fair at an exclusive event at a Hamptons estate on July 8, and attending the opening VIP preview of the fair on July 9.

The 2014 VIP Preview of Art Southampton attracted more than 4,200 collectors, art advisors, curators, and designers, while the full five-day event hosted more than 21,000 attendees. The 2015 edition will again provide an intimate look at some of the most important works at the forefront of the international contemporary art movement.

“We are extremely thankful to have the support of David Ogilvy & Associates and Christie’s International Real Estate for Art Southampton,” said Nick Korniloff, Director and Partner of Art Miami, LLC. “We look forward to another successful fair, this year putting a spotlight on the best the contemporary art and luxury real estate markets have to offer from around the globe.”

2016 – Tips for Sellers & Buyers

12OldForge_1

Buyers:
1. If you see a home you like – pursue it, don’t wait!
Buyers who start hunting for a home early will face less competition and would have more homes to choose from.

2. Mortgages – Shop around when it comes to a mortgage.
Talk to more than one lender. A lower interest rate could mean thousands in savings over the life of the loan.

 3. Try looking at new homes.
Construction of new homes is expected to  rise this year, with an expected 16-percent increase in sales of new homes year-over-year. Buying a new home may cost more but having a brand new home of your dreams – Wouldn’t it be ideal?  We have the perfect Georgian currently under construction and will be ready this April!  1 Doverton Drive – Greenwich, Connecticut

Sellers:  Call us now! 203-869-9866

 There are many steps before your listing becomes public and April – June is prime time for buyers looking for a new home

 1.  Get your home inspected to make sure there will be no delays in selling your home.  Nothing is worse than a buyer wanting to purchase your home to discover a major issue or repair, and you no longer have a sale of your home.

2.  We’ve all heard of the term,  2. Spring Cleaning – time to get rid of all those items you don’t want to move with you – hold an Estate Sale – donate etc.  Less is more, and you want to showcase the home.

3.  Does your home need updates?  When was the last time you painted?  White and Grays are back…what a difference a fresh coat of paint can make.  Curb appeal – remember you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.

4.  Pricing your home – Work with your agent – start to research the current market and be realistic about the price your home will sell for.  The most important part of selling your home is going to be the list price.

Just a few tips…Contact our office today on how our agents can help you – we can be reached at 203-869-9866 – info@davidogilvy.com and see all the beautiful homes for sale in Greenwich, Connecticut  on our website davidogilvy.com
