On the evening of October 23, Chestnut Park and Echelon Wealth Partners hosted an exclusive event, Luxury At The Gardiner. This special event invited clients and friends of Chestnut Park and Echelon Wealth Partners to the Gardiner Museum to enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres and listen to a special presentation by representatives of Christie’s International Real Estate.


Guests sipped on wine from Norman Hardie, an exceptional winery in one of our areas of service, Prince Edward County. They also enjoyed delicious Oer d’oeuvres from caterer, A La Carte Kitchen.
Christie’s International Real Estate representatives, Kathy Coumou and Tash Perrin, spoke about the state of the luxury real estate market and how to invest in fine art. Their presentations were well received and enjoyed by all.
It was a spectacular evening, and we were so happy to have had the opportunity to host the company of friends and clients in a beautiful venue.

Like most things in our world today, the environment for mergers and acquisitions in the real estate industry is in a state of flux. Mergers are described as an amalgamation of two companies on near-equal terms forming into a new legal entity. In reality, this does not happen – one company is always the dominant player, even though it is still called a merger. So, the discussion is really all about acquisitions, but M&A has a better ring to it.
