Aaron Kirman, one of the most luxuriant names in the real estate industry, is about to become one of the world's leading agents. After successfully partnering with Christie's International Real Estate, Kirman is set to consolidate his position in the lap of luxury within the property industry. Here's a closer look.
Throughout his career, Kirman has accumulated over $14 billion in sales. However, in 2022, he has made a further $1.6 billion, give or take a few million. Kirman's Los Angeles portfolio holds top-notch transactions, including the Danny Thomas Estate ($65 million), 777 Sarbonne, and Edie Getz's' Estate ($45 million). His listings have been designed by "some of the world's most famous architectural homes," including Pierre Koenig's Case Study House #21, John Lautner's Foster House, and various Richard Neutra properties. Most importantly, as if an eight-year project - with 600 workers - isn't tricky enough, Kirman sealed the $141 million deal of the ultra-modern Bel Air home, 'The One,' constructed by architect Paul McClean and interior designer Kathryn Rotondi. While Christie's property firm works internationally, the two have mutually decided that the new brokerage will be based in Beverly Hills but subside for a "global luxury network." According to Real Estate Weekly, Kirman admitted, "This is a perfect match between one of the most pedigreed brands in luxury real estate and the modern world of tech-first, white glove luxury service."
Kirman's team is expected to "elevate the standard for high-end real estate brokerage." Considering Christie's network deals with "industry-leading technology," the market is about to become increasingly competitive. The gloves are on, but we believe there is no match for these masterminds. The duo is predicted to gather and "mentor a new generation of luxury agents." Considering the abundance of luxury property opportunities, we can thank Kirman's shine in the real estate limelight for that. He has appeared on CNBC's Listing Impossible and has even been accredited by The New York Times, CNN, and Variety. Though Christie's has over 900 offices worldwide, Kirman's profile is set to expand its combined portfolio at an unimaginable rate. CEO of Christie's, Guillaume Cerutti, says, "Los Angeles is one of the most important and prolific markets in the world for Christie's – a fertile landscape of artists and aficionados, collectors and collections. The heightened visibility that AKG | Christie's International Real Estate brings to the Christie's name in Los Angeles, and the opportunities to provide another layer of service to clients of both the real estate business and our art and luxury business, is incredibly exciting."
Homeowners and big spenders should prepare for strategic and state-of-the-art brokerage investments. The launch will set a new standard for high-end properties, breaking through any portfolio to date. Incoming clients are expected to be faced with an "unparalleled service," accessing only the most grandeur of items at a holding price. Stay tuned.
