Ivester Jackson Coastal Properties, a Wrightsville Beach-based affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, recently announced an initiative aimed at providing concierge corporate relocation services for Wilmington’s business community.

The company has tapped local corporate relocation specialist and former Keller Williams director of luxury, Lois Potratz, for the position of corporate relocation director, according to a news release.

Potratz will work with the Ivester Jackson | Christie's team of real estate specialists "to offer white-glove transition services to companies in the healthcare, financial, hospitality and technology sectors who are increasingly seeing demand for corporate relocation services to the Carolina Coast," the release stated.

Ryan Faro, managing broker in charge of Ivester Jackson Coastal | Christie's, said elevating the relocation experience taps into an ongoing trend.

"The recent influx in remote work, along with a shifting job market, has granted folks the ability to reimagine what their workplace looks like and where they call home," Faro said in the release. "We are grateful that many of them are choosing the beautiful North Carolina coast! Our firm is proud to introduce a division that focuses exclusively on these clients, while providing a concierge level service. Lois Potratz, along with our team of experienced brokers are thrilled to stand at the forefront of this project."

Ivester Jackson, a rapidly growing residential and investment property brokerage, opened it’s Wilmington office last summer. Its "exponential growth," the release stated, has been fueled by its network of offices across the state as well as its global affiliation with Christie’s. 

“I could not be more pleased to be partnering with Ivester Jackson and Christie’s International Real Estate as we work in tandem with the Wilmington business community to offer a truly tailored relocation experience. This is an exciting time in the growth of Wilmington and its surrounding areas and we recognize that coastal North Carolina is attracting talent from not only around the country but around the globe," Potratz said in the release.

Potratz said at Ivester Jackson, "we understand that it is crucial to provide a tailored experience for each candidate from first contact, throughout the interview process and then long after the home sale as we work to connect each person with the community, helping to foster candidate retention. In addition, we work hand in hand with our human resource and talent recruiters as we provide feedback and information that meets their individual needs and aids in creating a seamless hiring process."

According to the release, Ivester Jackson, North Carolina’s exclusive representative for Christie’s International Real Estate, operates real estate brokerages offices across the state, including Asheville, Highlands, Charlotte, Lake Norman and Wilmington.
