“It’s an honor to have represented all of the top five highest-priced home sales in Chicagoland over the past year, and we thank our clients for entrusting @properties Christie’s International Real Estate agents to handle the sale of their homes,” said Mike Golden, co-founder and co-CEO of @properties Christie’s International Real Estate. “With agents who truly understand the needs of a luxury home seller, sophisticated marketing and technology, and unmatched local market expertise, we provide the industry’s ultimate experience for our clients.”
@properties’ acquisition of Christie’s International Real Estate in late 2021 reinforced the brokerage’s position in Chicago’s luxury market, marrying the local market leader with one of the most recognized luxury real estate brands in the world.
2021 was an unusually robust year for luxury home sales around the country, with low housing inventory and prices at all-time highs in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic and low mortgage rates. Locally, home prices finished 2021 with their eighth consecutive month of double-digit percentage increases, according to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Indices. Chicagoland median single-family home values rose more than 12% in December, compared to the same period in 2020.
