Now they have been joined by a group of nuns using the Web to raise funds with their own online auction, which will run until 30 May.The Benedictine Sisters in Ridgely, Maryland, set out to run their own auction, rather than use an existing online auction service. Sister Jeannette said they saw it as “an opportunity to launch our own internet communications strategy, create better relationships with our supporters, tell people about the Benedictine Programs & Services and control the revenues from banner advertising”. 14 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The attractiveness of Croatia as a top European destination as well as a destination that has great potential for the development of the luxury segment of the real estate market, was recognized by the world’s leading intermediary in luxury real estate, Christie’s International Real Estate, who just came to Croatia. Namely, Christie’s International Real Estate is expanding its business to Croatia through an associated company Remington Realty Croatia. Ivan Kovačić, CEO of Remington Realty Croatia “Real estate presents itself globally, combining new media with proven marketing tools and reaching out to reputable buyers, global investors and well-known business leaders. We will be happy to connect the owners of luxury real estate in Croatia with a high class of buyers and thus significantly develop the segment of luxury real estate in Croatia”Kovačić points out and adds that they have recognized Croatia as a destination that has great potential for the development of the luxury segment of the real estate market, and they plan to expand to the whole of Southeast Europe. The expansion of Christie’s International Real Estate’s business in Croatia and Southeast Europe is good news for the owners of prominent and luxury real estate in this area. Through the world’s leading brokerage house Christie’s International Real Estate and its marketing platform for the sale and rental of luxury real estate, followed by buyers from around the world, owners of prominent and luxury real estate can now easily put their property on the world market. A world symbol of sophistication and luxury Ivan Kovačić, CEO of Remington Realty Croatia: Croatia got an unrivaled platform for positioning on the global map of the luxury real estate market Remington Realty Croatia will mediate in the sale, purchase and rental of prominent real estate through Remington Realty and Christie’s International Real Estate network and global marketing platform, and business activities will include attracting international qualified buyers, investors and developers for real estate projects, as well as providing professional support and advising real estate sellers and developers. This is great news for Croatia, because the arrival of a global player in the luxury real estate business is not accidental, on the contrary, capital goes where it can be fertilized. This certainly gives an additional positive signal to other foreign investors and helps branding and positioning Croatia as a top destination. Holiday homes are growing rapidly, and so this year, where despite the coronavirus epidemic, luxury houses with swimming pools were in high demand. With the opening of the associated office of Christie’s International Real Estate, Croatia gets an unrivaled platform for positioning on the global map of the luxury real estate market, as well as to attract international qualified customers, he said Ivan Kovačić, CEO of Remington Realty Croatia. Otherwise, theirs Web page christiesrealestate.com records more than 52 million visits, and the size of Christie’s International Real Estate is best illustrated by the fact that their network has achieved in the last five years selling real estate worth $ 500 billion. Christie’s International Real Estate has been successfully trading luxury real estate around the world for more than 30 years, and they are theirs clients of prominent figures from public life and the business world, such as members of the Kennedy family or company founder Calvin Klein, whose estates they currently represent. The presence in 49 markets with 940 offices, among others in London, New York, Hong Kong, Moscow, Los Angeles and Chicago, speaks volumes about what kind of branding it is, and thus puts Croatia on the global map of luxury real estate. This global crisis has only accelerated the upward trend of luxury homes, and the fact that there was a great demand for them on the global scene even before the appearance of Covid19 is shown by the fact that the world’s largest hotel chain Marriott, last year launched a platform offering private luxury house rentals with a Marriott quality certificate. Croatia, mostly in the interior of Istria, and now the same trend is spreading along our entire coast and islands, has caught up relatively quickly and already has thousands of luxury holiday homes throughout the Adriatic. Christie’s International Real Estate is owned by the famous auction house Christie’s, founded back in 1766. Christie’s has been offering outstanding art, unsurpassed service and worldwide customers for hundreds of years, and annually holds about 350 auctions in over 80 categories, including all areas of fine art, decor, jewelry, photography, collectibles. In conclusion, luxury holiday homes will definitely remain in focus. Personally, I think that there will be a greater demand for luxury holiday homes than for higher category hotels, and these houses will become the first choice in the category of luxury tourism. This is confirmed by the arrival of Christie’s International Real Estate in Croatia.
