North Carolina-based Ivester Jackson, a real estate firm that has an office in Wilmington, has been named the Christie’s International Real Estate Affiliate of the Year, according to a news release. Broker-owners Lori Ivester Jackson and Reed Jackson accepted the award on behalf of the brokerage during the Christie’s International Real Estate Owners Conference in the Cayman Islands.

In addition to Wilmington, Ivester Jackson has offices in Charlotte and Lake Norman, as well as in Asheville under the Ivester Jackson Blackstream brand. Since joining the Christie’s International Real Estate network in 2013, Ivester Jackson companies have achieved a compound annualized growth rate of 30%, the release stated.

After expanding to North Carolina’s coastal market in 2022, the firm quickly became the coast’s fastest growing luxury brokerage and the first boutique brokerage to cover the entire expanse of the Tar Heel state. Ivester Jackson has placed 15 North Carolina-based luxury brokers in the prestigious Christie’s International Real Estate Masters Circle, which is limited to the network’s top agents.

In addition, the brokerage has attained individual luxury record sales prices in Charlotte’s historic Eastover neighborhood ($5.7 million), Lake Norman’s gated Norman Estates enclave ($5.4 million), and in Balsam Mountain Preserve near Asheville ($3.9 million). This is the second time that Ivester Jackson has been awarded Affiliate of the Year; the first was in 2017.

Christie’s International Real Estate brand president Chris Lim said in the release, “We’re honored to name Ivester Jackson our Affiliate of the Year for their overall commitment to excellence in luxury sales and their incredible success over the past 12 months. They are true leaders in the network, leveraging the systems of Christie’s International Real Estate ... to propel their growth.”

The Christie’s International Real Estate Affiliate of the Year is awarded to one of the network’s broker-owners, based on achievement in luxury sales and service, the growth of the firm, drive to succeed in the local and global marketplace under the Christie’s International Real Estate brand and collaboration with network colleagues and the Christie’s auction house, according to the release.
