@properties was established in 2000 to provide a better brokerage experience with cutting-edge technology and upscale marketing. The firm grew into one of the nation’s largest independent brokerages before acquiring Christie’s International Real Estate in 2021. That same year, Alexander Real Estate partners Eric Walstrom and Alex Irrer saw an opportunity to grow SE Michigan's #1 brokerage firm. Combining local ownership with a globally recognized luxury brand, Alexander Real Estate became @properties Christie’s International Real Estate.
Established in Royal Oak as Alexander Real Estate, today @properties Christie’s International Real Estate is the #1 brokerage firm in SE Michigan and one of the fastest-growing real estate companies in the entire metro area. We maintain the same local ownership but now offer industry-leading marketing and technology, as well as access to a large, national referral network for any out-of-market real estate needs. It all adds up to the best service and best overall experience when it comes to buying or selling a home.
