EDITOR’S NOTE

T

he new year always brings hope and promise. It’s a chance to reflect on our past orbit around the sun and set new goals moving forward. 2020 has a monumental significance for many, its weight evoking new possibilities for the future. Lofty goals and self-promises aside, having a clear vision for change and improvement is critical. In the pages ahead, we are inspired by this calling, taking a look at visionaries in their respective fields—from design to art to real estate—that are moving us forward. We start in Miami amidst the familiar scene at Art Basel Miami Beach: palm trees sway, champagne flows and collectors gather. But among the air kisses and blue chip art pieces, Design Miami, the platform for collectable design, showcases high quality pieces for the home that put visionary craft and materiality to the fore while calling attention to changing climates. Organized around the curatorial theme Elements: Water, this year’s exhibiting galleries explore the mysterious substance that is increasingly threatening and under threat (Show Review, p. 32). In Chelsea, we catch up with New York-based wire sculpture and performance artist Skye Ferrante who’s made waves, headlines and the occasional spectacle for his provocative and truly distinct body of work. The visionary artist’s sculptural forms blur the lines between two-dimensional art, sculpture and performance. We also get a welcome dose of his signature wit in our candid interview, Man of Wire (p. 40). Real estate is no exception to virtuosos. In our feature 2020 Vision (p.48), we take an in-depth look at the leaders in the ever-competitive space and the prime locations they serve. From new frontiers and emerging markets, to tax havens and established strongholds, to the next generation of real estate’s brightest stars, we profile who, where and what you need to know, now. You’ll also see a gallery of the finest properties currently for sale in the Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliate network including: a heritage waterfront home on Lake Pend Orville, Idaho; a lakefront retreat in Meeks Bay, Lake Tahoe; and an entertainer’s oasis in Harbour Island, Bahamas (Property Finder, p.71). Here’s to 2020 vision.

The scene at Art Basel Miami Beach was familiar: palm trees swayed, champagne flowed and collectors streamed into air-conditioned exhibition halls. But among the air kisses and blue chip art pieces, Design Miami, the platform for collectable design, showcased high quality pieces for the home that put craft and materiality to the fore. Organized around the curatorial theme Elements: Water, this year’s exhibiting galleries explored the mysterious substance that is increasingly threatening and under threat. Meanwhile artists staged site-specific installations on the beach, Design District, and museums around town using Miami’s landscape as both material and muse.

Coral Lamp by William Coggin First time Design Miami exhibitor SCENE OUVERTE explored the ethereal beauty of marine environments with ceramic works by designer William Coggin including Coral Lamps and Coral Coffee Table, pieces that blend the fluidity of organic form with the roughness of surface textures. Galerie-Sceneouverte.com

Elements by Teresita Fernandez (Previous pages) Cuban-America artist Teresita Fernandez’ survey ‘Elemental’ at the Perez Art Museum included works that explore environmental catastrophe through an unconventional use of materials. ‘Fire’ uses thousands of hand-dyed silk threads to construct flame patterns, while ‘Fire (United States of America)’ creates a charred mosaic replica of the earth and an American continent ravaged—the piece appears to suggest—by both environmental and political forces.

Pink Beasts by Fernando Laposse To create the cheeky pink sloths that hung suspended from trees around the Design District, Mexican designer Fernando Laposse used natural sisal fibers from the Yucatan, and a natural dye called cochineal that the Aztecs once used to color everything from textiles to buildings. The installation served as a reminder that even flamboyant products can be crafted by hand using sustainable dyes and fibers. MiamiDesignDistrict.net

Null by Studio Buzao

Aqua Alta by Virgil Abloh (Below)

The seas and skies of the Pearl River Delta inspired the hues of Null, a collection of laminated glass lamps, tables and benches shown by LA-based Gallery All. The series, designed by China’s Studio Buzao, is treated with gradients of opacity that shift from a deep blue to a translucent blue and ultimately to near invisibility.

Some designers were explicit in their exploration of water as an environmental threat. Carpenters Workshop Gallery showed designer Virgil Abloh’s Aqua Alta series of “sinking” furniture featuring chairs and benches dissected at different points to appear as if they are sinking into the floor. The collection draws from the tide peaks that regularly affect Venetian life and, increasingly, Miami’s.

The Order of Importance by Leandro Erlich (Above) Anyone who sat in gridlocked traffic during Miami Art Week appreciated Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich’s life sized sculpture of a traffic jam. Located on the beach, the series of sixty-five cars and trucks entitled ‘The Order of Importance’ was commissioned by the City of Miami Beach and transformed the beach itself into an eerie tableau where the expertly rendered vehicles both distort and sink into the low-lying sandscape.

MAN of WIRE

ART

New York-based wire sculpture and performance artist Skye Ferrante has made waves, headlines and the occasional spectacle for his provocative and truly distinct body of work. We sit down and get uterly candid with the Man of Wire to learn more about his mind- and wire-bending process and his fascination with the nude form, with a welcome dose of his signature wit to match.

You’ve developed quite a following and garnered attention for your work in recent years. How did you get to this point and moment? SF: Well I didn’t fly, and certainly not first class. As a boy until my early twenties I was a ballet dancer; there weren’t many of us—but I got comfortable being the only boy in a room, in most rooms, until I went to School of American Ballet where there were enough boys to have a class of boys. It wasn’t easy in the Eighties, pre Billy Elliot, being a boy ballet dancer, but I was happy, and in time I was able to do it well—or good enough sometimes to be the best in a room, which is a feeling I think all children should have, at least once, about something, anything—just to know, ‘I’m really good at this.’ That feeling which came for me with ballet has informed everything I’ve done since. My sculpture is ballet. When did you first become interested in making art? SF: My parents were in the arts, commercial, advertising in the golden age, they were encouraging, and for me to choose dance was economical; at the time nearly all boys in ballet were on scholarship. My father taught me

40

to draw, somewhat, though I didn’t go to art school. My first and favorite subject to draw was volcanos, and once I even performed the “Fall of Pompei” on stage for the entire school; I built a volcano, and played all the parts, the dying Pompeians, as well as the volcano—Vesuvius. As you can see, I’ve moved on from volcanos. Now that volcanoes have blown over – so to speak – how did you land on the human form and the medium of wire? SF: There’s no landscape I love more, and I view the body as a landscape— when the portrait works it is a landscape and not a portrait; although I do love landscapes too. Before I took to wire, I would paint with oil pastels on Hampstead Heath in London, and I loved the movement of trees. It’s what I saw and loved in the Impressionists: Abstraction in the figurative. Blur. My spools of wire begin as static mediums; if I get the portrait right, it moves—and becomes a landscape, see? I chose wire after apprenticing for a bronze sculptor whose studio was in the crypt of the Cathedral of St. John the Devine. I lacked the patience for bronze casting; I wanted to sculpt as fast as

a painter paints, and so I removed the process down to the armature wire beneath the clay and found that I could ‘paint’ with that. I was aware of Calder and his ‘Circus’ at the Whitney, in the old lobby, but wasn’t influenced, technically, at least; I always work with one continuous piece. When did you get your first big break? SF: (Large Orson-Wellian Belly Laugh) Oh that would have to be Joe Smegegge. Yeah, it was Smegegge who gave me the big break. Been on easy street ever since.

My spools of wire begin as static mediums; if I get the

portrait right, it moves.

Portrait fo Amelie; Chelsea Hotel, NYC, 2019 | Photography: Tony Notarberardino

Tell us about some of your most notable clients and collaborations. SF: Of late, Ferrari. They seem to like me and there’s only a few letters different in our name. Our work together is performance sculpture, they fly me to Pebble Beach and I live-sculpt a 1959 250 Testa Rossa off a big aluminum spool over a three-hour event. It adds color and authenticity, I suppose— although, Ferrari doesn’t need me for more color or authenticity. Artistic parsley, I guess—or Parmesan.

42

London, Athens and Moscow; each portrait has a corresponding portrait story, written on a typewriter, about the model and our portrait sitting— imagine that, except the exhibition was in a basement, in a nightclub, in the dark. The whole unseen show was taken down, and what wasn’t damaged by the rich ended up in a garage in Islington with a leaky roof for six months. What is a dream client/subject for you?

I’ve done some large-scale spectacle pieces captured on time-lapse, too. I actually love doing corporate work; unlike most galleries, they pay up, often in advance, meet their agreements, including post-sculpture massage—it’s in my rider—and I don’t have to sue them in the end to get my work back. Presumably they just destroy it. I’m just kidding. But they might.

SF: Thank you for asking. If I may dream: She will arrange for a neverending portrait on a never-ending spool, on a never-ending monthly retainer. I’ll cancel all other clients, suspend exhibitions permanently, make a thoughtful bend when I feel like it, and when not working you can find me through binoculars in Central Park, on the Boating Pond with my daughter. She’s old enough to row.

Describe a memorable exhibition for us.

Where does this dry, witty sense of humor originate?

SF: I can think of one I’d like to forget. Imagine an exhibition of two dozen nude portraits sculpted in Paris, New York,

SF: New York of course, and its seasons. We have all of them: Good to bad to worse to Hudson Yards. Have you ever

walked on East Broome Street by the open vegetable and fish markets in high Summer? Do that, and stop a moment to close your eyes, and sniff. We’ll pass on that one. Where do you look for inspiration in the “Art world?” SF: I go to the MoMA once a week, but only for the children’s butter pasta—it’s half the price of the adult pasta and it comes with a free cookie. Joking aside, what do you aim to evoke with your work? What are you trying to communicate to audiences? SF: I like that you say, ‘audiences.’ In art, unless it’s performance art, we are removed from our audience in the making of it, and when we show, the artwork is performing, not the artist. But this is why I work with models— friends, mostly, and performers I admire—for the company, and for the immediate applause, frankly, when the piece is done. As a child of the stage, the sound of a standing O is hard to forget. Working with the model is a dance and a collaboration, a pas de deux and a performance for the two of


I wanted to sculpt as fast

as a painter paints.

us—typically, unless it’s three. We are on stage and in the audience for each other all at once throughout the sitting experience; It is this that I am trying to communicate, that the artwork alone cannot. Hence, the portrait stories. The sculpture is secondary to the story, and sometimes the excuse to write. In short, I make sculptures to read. How do you want our readers to experience your work? SF: Whether a por trait sit ting, c o m m is si o n e d f ro m li fe a s a n experience, a proper landscape or architectural or their 50 million-dollar 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, the sculpture is continuous. They can follow every bend I make, from the beginning until the end, in chronological time. Where can we catch you performing/ sculpting next? What’s ahead for you? SF: I’m going back to Los Angeles to do a residency at Petit Ermitage—to escape the New York winter. Of course by the time that this is published, I’ll be on to something else. Perhaps, a private never-ending floral commission in the Bay Area? G Sky Ferrante Instagram: @Manofwire Portrait of Isabella; Chelsea Hotel, NYC, 2019 Photography: Tony Notarberardino

I

n a high-stakes and evercompetitive real estate market, the difference between listing a property and selling a lifestyle sets top agents apart from the rest of the pack. When it comes to multi-million dollar estates, specialists Susan Hewitt and C.J. Nakagawa know that selling a dream requires experiential marketing and activating an arsenal of exclusive relationships. The renowned team at Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty proved once again that they are at the top of their game with the launch of their latest trophy listing in Marin County. One of Tiburon’s most anticipated residences, 25 Gilmartin Drive is a Contemporar y Mediterranean masterpiece overlooking Richardson Bay, Sausalito, the Golden Gate Bridge

46

and San Francisco’s skyline. Located in one of the most prestigious enclaves of Tiburon, the sprawling home is ideal for a growing family, an entertainer extraordinaire and anyone with a discerning eye for design-driven living. “New build construction of this magnitude combined with the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is rare in this market. Add the sweeping views and the gated privacy factor, and you have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says Hewitt. “We knew we had to debut this home, not just bring it to market. We pulled out all the stops.” The property’s debut was more like all systems go. Onlookers witnessed a flurry of activity—flocks of Ferraris to be exact. Cruising in and out of the private driveway was the luxury brand’s latest creation, The Portofino, Ferrari’s V8 GT. Rearing to dominate the market

with 600 horsepower, The Portofino can race from 0 to 200 km/h in just under 11 seconds, all while wrapped in an aerodynamic body featuring a rectangular hard top, a spacious boot, and generous cockpit space. Talk about curb appeal. Over 80 VIPS flocked to 25 Gilmartin over the two-day event, enjoying enveloping views from the view side terrace while enjoying fine wines, delectable catering, ambient live music and of course, all things Ferrari. Upon entering the home’s grand foyer, guests were met with a flutter of bright team members – dressed in Ferrari red – as well as Ferrari memorabilia that adorned the home. In the great room stood Skye Ferrante, a world renowned, New Yorkbased wire sculptor dressed in a long white smock, quietly creating his latest piece, Ferrari’s iconic Cavallino, from a single spool of wire and a pair of pliers.


A trip down the home’s winding staircase brought attendees to the carlover’s candy shop. Exquisite leather, luxurious carpet, and other fine finish samples were on full display, part of a design-it-yourself Ferrari pop-up. Guests were guided through the design process and able to customize their very own bespoke Portofino. With a few clicks of an iPad, one could order their new ride from the comfort of the sofa. Time to slide into the driver’s seat. Armed with a trained Ferrari driver as passenger, guests cruised through the winding promenades of Tiburon, learning the art of control and respect needed to handle the machine at their fingertips. “To see high-net-worth individuals socializing, all while experiencing the home for sale and test driving—and special ordering their newest Ferrari

—was an experience in its own right,” said Nakagawa. “Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty and Ferrari go hand in hand; both artfully unite extraordinary people with extraordinary homes and exotic cars.

AGENT FEATURE

Michele Schuler

- Seattle, WA

SEATTLE CALLING

A

s the fastest-growing large city in America, Seattle’s booming and diversified economy has spurred unprecedented development and population growth with a clear urbanization trend. Home to 730,000 residents and counting, the city has grown 18 percent since 2010, with over 4 million residents in the greater metropolitan area. With homegrown giants like Amazon and Microsoft firmly situated in the region, along with multiple unicorn-status start-ups like Auth0 and Convoy, the Puget Sound feels a little like the Bay Area’s younger sibling. Expedia, Alaska Airlines, Boeing, Nintendo and Costco also call the Emerald City area home, and Facebook, Google, and other Bay Area companies have opened outpost offices. It’s not surprising that the greater Seattle area has been dubbed the “Silicon Forest”. But it’s not all tech. Seattle has a long history of booms and reinventions— from the lumber industry to the Klondike gold rush, from shipbuilding to Boeing to Microsoft. Cycles aside, Seattle’s abundance of natural resources put the city on the map, and today, these same natural surroundings attract buyers seeking a pristine environment and immediate access to nature. There’s no shortage of outdoor activities for locals and visitors alike; hiking, skiing, snowboarding, rafting, sailing, mountain biking, kayaking and more. The city is also pulsing with culture and events, has a culinary scene rivaling Portland and is dubbed a “must visit”

50

food destination, and is renowned for its craft breweries and artisan coffee roasters. As more and more transplants are beginning to find out, Seattle is a pretty special place. No one knows this better than Michele Schuler. A native Washingtonian, Schuler is one of Puget Sound’s top producing real estate advisors and a founding member of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty’s newest Bellevue office. A former finance professional and self-professed data geek, Schuler has developed a book of business and deep-rooted client relationships thanks to her underlying service ethos: obsessive due diligence, always looking out for the best interest of her clients, to the point of holding them back rather than pushing them forward if need be. “Seattle is beautiful. I truly believe there is not a prettier place than Seattle on a sunny day,” Schuler says with a hint of humor. “It doesn’t rain that much.” (With an average annual rainfall of 37.7 inches per year, Seattle is only the 32nd rainiest city in the country.) “It feels like a big city and a small town at the same time. Given I have lived in greater Seattle my entire life, I do consider myself a Seattle expert.” A graduate of the Universit y of Washington, Schuler was a CPA for Microsoft before joining a startup and growing the company from nine to 147 employees. She then began buying and flipping houses with a friend until becoming a full-time broker. Since then, Schuler has been one of the topperforming agents in the area, hitting

a professional milestone in 2018 with $60 million closed in sales volume. Her ultimate value-add for buyers new to the area? Schuler works as a VIP relocation specialist with highly confidential C-suite clients relocating to the area. Schuler often meets with these families as they make their initial visits to Seattle, prior to signing any official offer letters. “My role with hiring companies is critical, as my job is not only to educate and acclimate clients to the area, but to help them discover all things Seattle has to offer,” says Schuler. “I love helping people, as I am incredibly empathetic to the stresses endured by families relocating to the area.” Schuler prides herself on being a community resource and navigating the hurdles of relocation for her clients. For the past decade, Schuler cites 25 percent of her business dedicated to helping over a hundred buyers relocate into—or out of—the Seattle area. “People relocating often know nothing about the area and are desperate to learn more about commutes, communities, amenities, schools, pros and cons of each neighborhood. Some are looking to recreate the life they had in their departure city, others are looking for a true Pacific Northwest experience,” says Schuler. “I spend my time creating deep, meaningful relationships with my clients to really help them intuit what will be the best fit for them, and then executing on a plan to find it.” Schuler owns homes on both Mercer Island and Bainbridge Island, working

extensively in both communities as well as listing and selling homes from Bainbridge Island to the Eastside, and everything in between. Though an expert in these areas, Schuler is not married to one specific community. “I can provide a unique perspective to buyers and don’t pigeon-hole them into one community, but rather show them the larger landscape and alternatives,” says Schuler. “Most buyers are looking to stay within a 45 minute commute of their workplace. If they have kids, they want to be in a great school district. More and more buyers tend to want to purchase in an area that is walkable and offers more neighborhood amenities.” Schuler also notes a shift in buyer trends. Her clientele is becoming even more tech-focused, which she notes: “I liken buying a house to online dating as the photos or information provided online look great, but when you meet, there might not be any chemistry. Much can be gained through technology in terms of statistics, pricing history, aerial imaging, automated valuation models and such, but the reality is that when purchasing a home, an emotional connection is forged. Every family, situation, and individual is unique, just as communities are unique. My goal is to coordinate all of those variables

52

much like a matchmaker might do.” Beyond that, Michele works to stay on top of tech trends in real estate as to ensure her clients can utilize new advancements in technologies (think home automation, renewable energy sources, etc), versus being wary of technological implementation. Speaking of perfect matches, Silicon Valley and Seattle have had a symbiotic relationship for years. The Emerald City’s strong tech ecosystem has led to a number of startups choosing to start here, but more importantly, many tech giants are moving jobs to Seattle so they can afford to expand, take advantage of the tech talent in the area, or diversify in the region. The influx of new high-paying jobs, plus relocating employees to Seattle, is driving demand for homes in Seattle. Over the past 10 years, Amazon has grown more than tenfold in Seattle, from about 4,000 employees in its hometown to over 45,000. During the same time, the median home price in the city has shot up from $420,000 to $720,000 according to the Northwest MLS, and home prices in the metro area as a whole have gone up 47 percent. That’s nearly twice as high as the national increase of 24 percent according to the S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index.

Between 2008 and 2018, over 535,000 homes have sold in the greater Seattle metro area. “Businesses aren’t just relocated to Seattle to tap into a growing, skilled labor market. Some are simply relocating to grow their business in a more cost-efficient way. California has the highest income taxes in the United States. Incredibly intrusive and endlessly proliferating regulations only make it harder for businesses to operate. While many businesses are moving to Texas, Chicago, and the East Coast, Seattle is the closest to the Bay Area in both culture and geography. These companies can find talent and real estate while gaining more freedom to operate their businesses,” says Schuler. The tech effect is not only strong, but building fast. Seattle home prices rose faster in October 2019 than they have for a year, rising 3.3 percent to $775,000 — the largest percentage increase in 12 months. With only 1.63 months of supply of single-family homes (excluding condos), King County’s available listing inventory is notably below the national average of four months with 25.7 percent fewer homes on the market in October 2019


compared to the previous year. Condo inventory is only slightly better, at just over two months of inventory, although that could improve with several high rise projects in Seattle and Bellevue in the pipeline. “Seattle’s tech landscape and real estate market are rapidly evolving together. Google just upped the size of its new Seattle campus. Facebook has been on a hiring spree in the Seattle area, particularly for its virtual reality arm Oculus, which is growing fast in Microsoft’s backyard of Redmond. There are 35,000 jobs in Bellevue alone. For the past five years we have seen 50 percent price growth in this market, which, frankly, has priced out many middle class buyers,” says Schuler. Price growth and tech evolution aside, one thing is certain—The Schuler Team is among the most sought after real estate teams in Puget Sound. Practical, prepared, and present, they welcome the opportunity to help Bay Area buyers discover the Silicon Forest and all it has to offer.

Christian Cisco

- Jackson Hole, WY

WHY WYOMING?

T

here are plenty o f r e a s o n s to b e thankful for owning a home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming— the mountains, the rivers, two national parks, three ski resorts, art galleries, restaurants, a charming Western-style downtown, and a close-knit, philanthropic-minded and fun-loving community. The real estate market is small, yet mature and exclusive. Inventory is fixed and demand is high, and no one knows it better than Christian Cisco. A major player in the real estate market, Cisco is a top producer at Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty and has been involved in many significant sales in the region. His own road to real estate began with his Aunt, a top producer herself in Jackson Hole in the 1980s. Cisco moved back to Jackson Hole with his family in the 1990s after successful sales careers in Houston and Chicago. “I have lived here for the better part of forty years and know just about everything (and everyone) there is to know,” says Cisco. “My clients describe me as very responsive, yet patient…a rare combination in our industry they say.” Cisco is also known for his creativity, intuitive nature and the ability to find people just what they are looking for, even though they might not immediately recognize it themselves. A proven, trusted expert, Cisco’s clientele are mostly baby-boomers who love Jackson Hole and are at a place

54

in their lives where they are seeking a change, mainly moving from their overpopulated and overtaxed urban lifestyles for everything the town has to offer. “The trend is simple and clear: Jackson Hole is a small philanthropic mountain community at the foot of the Teton Mountain range in the most tax friendly state in the country,” says Cisco.

Tax savings helps us stretch our hard-earned dollars farther, whether to buy real estate or

leave property to our heirs.

“As enviable as our lifestyle is here, reality does intrude occasionally, as it does with taxes. But even in that area, we as Wyoming residents are better off than most. After all, Wyoming has been cited by Bloomberg Wealth Management magazine as the most tax friendly state in the country. This is largely due to the State of Wyoming’s

budget surplus of nearly $1 billion,” says Cisco. “Tax savings helps us stretch our hard-earned dollars farther, whether to buy real estate, leave property to our heirs or buy a new mountain bike.” Cisco also notes a trend in California buyers, having represented multiple buyers from the San Francisco Bay Area in recent years. Cisco helped one such client purchase the first publicly sold furnished private residence in three years at the Four Seasons Jackson Hole. He also recently represented another client in their two purchases and one sale in Shooting Star, Jackson Hole’s most exclusive new development. As improved quality of life and the draw of low taxes continue to attract buyers, Cisco enlists the expertise of Brian Jones, Wealth Management Associate at J. Singleton Financial, to present the top ten reasons why it’s good to own home in Wyoming. Why Wyoming – Ten Reasons to Know 1. No state income tax: With no state tax on personal or corporate income, “you have more disposable income,” says Jones. 2. Dynasty trusts: In Wyoming, you can shield your real estate from federal estate taxes for up to 1,000 years through a dynasty trust. “You can establish a trust in Wyoming for the benefit of your family or other beneficiaries,” says Jones. “You can transfer your real estate into a limited liability company or family partnership and then put that into the ‘dynasty


55


inventory is fixed and demand is high.

trust,’ which can continue for a thousand years.” As a result, multiple generations can make use of and enjoy the property, without having to pay estate taxes or worse, having to sell the property in order to pay the taxes. A key point to remember: The trust must be administered in Wyoming. 3. No inheritance tax or estate tax: “Wyoming repealed its estate tax as of January 1, 2005,” says Jones. 4. No state gift tax: “Somebody who owns property in Wyoming can ‘gift’ that real estate to their heirs without having to worry about paying a state gift tax,” Jones says. 5. No tax on out-of-state retirement income: “A lot of people in Jackson Hole use Wyoming as a second home,” says Jones. 6. “They have retirement income that comes from other states where they may be a resident. Wyoming doesn’t tax that retirement income that’s earned outside of Wyoming, which is certainly beneficial.”

56

Our market is small, yet mature and exclusive—

7. Low property taxes: “Wyoming has very low property taxes compared to other states,” says Jones. “The taxes that you do pay here are based on the assessed value of the property.” For Teton County, Jones says, the rate is 1.2 percent of a property’s assessed value. The rate for the city of Jackson is 8/10 of one percent 8. No excise taxes: When you fill up your car’s gas tank or buy a bag of groceries in Wyoming, you won’t pay any state tax on your gas or food. 9. No tax on mineral ownership. “A lot of states charge owners a tax on their mineral ownership, but Wyoming does not,” says Jones. “If you own minerals, you won’t pay a tax on it like you would your home. 10. No intangible taxes: Wyoming doesn’t make you pay a tax on financial assets like stocks and bonds.

Magdalena Sarkissian

- Marin, CA

MARIN’S NATURAL

M

a g d a l e n a Sarkissian has risen quickly to the top of her industry in Marin County— having closed nearly $100 million in sales in 2019 alone with the Sarkissian Bullock Team—but her road to success is a lifetime in the making. We catch up with the real estate natural to learn about her holistic approach to the business, closing deals and helping the next generation of real estate buyers and sellers. “Residential real estate is an emotional industry. When a client vocalizes what they are feeling, you have to listen, create empathy and appreciate the opportunity to serve their needs and desires,” says Magdalena Sarkissian, a top agent at Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty. “I learn everything I can about the person I am representing. I want them to feel mutual trust so that I can do what I do best for them.” Sarkissian is an integral part of the Sarkissian Bullock Team, one of Marin’s top performing real estate teams for nearly 20 years, comprised of Lydia Sarkissian, Magdalena Sarkissian and Bill Bullock (who also is President and CEO of Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty.) Catering to predominantly repeat and referral based clientele, the team concentrates exclusively on the upper-end Marin County residential market, with a serious market share of Belvedere

58

and Tiburon’s ultra-prime listings, among other enclaves. A Marin-native, Magdalena joined the team in 2015, after graduating college and working for several years at an architectural firm specializing in five-star resorts, a period she credits for giving her a global perspective of luxury and building her ever-growing network.

Residential real estate is an emotional industry. You have to listen to serve clients’

needs and desires.

Relationships are at the core of Sarkissian’s approach to real estate. Not surprisingly, her road to real estate began with one of her closest relationships—her mother. “From a very young age, I have always been by my mother Lydia’s side. I learned the business through osmosis by watching and listening to her. I sent out thousands of mailers back in the day and went to

countless open houses she would bring me to. She was always dressed in a suit, ready to tackle any obstacle. This was a huge inspiration for me growing up. She taught me the importance of a woman following her passion and creating financial independence for herself,” says Sarkissian proudly. “I learned the ins-and-outs of the luxury market, discerning clientele’s preferences and how to always think outside the box.” The ability to connect with people at all levels and having wisdom beyond her years have enabled Sarkissian to break into the real estate market with ease and work with a variety of exclusive clients, expand the team’s business into new markets and satisfy the needs of the next generation of real estate buyers and sellers. She credits a holistic approach in taking care of her clients and their properties, her team’s reputation and how she carries herself. It’s also teamwork that gets her team through complex transactions. “Obstacles are a fact of life and they happen a lot during a deal. I like to find the solution rather than get stuck on the complications. When a problem is very complex, solutions come easier when you push the irrelevant information to the background and keep focus on closing the deal. Taking a comprehensive, holistic approach to real estate incorporates every aspect of the business and everyone in it. You need to know this industry inside out and be able to execute and deliver for your clients,” says Sarkissian.


59


We are known to be closers.

A reputation for delivering has put the Sarkissian Bullock Team top of mind among their growing clientele. The team has served some of the most dynamic and confidential individuals in the San Francisco Bay Area, from business entrepreneurs to professional athletes to technology and finance tycoons— many of which are typically all-cash buyers. “Our highly productive relationships with our clients has enabled us to work on multiple purchases and sales with each of them over the years. Our clients near retirement have excellent spending power thanks to the appreciating values of their homes and their success in equity markets over the years. The next generation of luxury buyers have specific needs and wants to purchase a property that fits a particular lifestyle. We understand those needs and have

60

the resources and connections to pair clients accordingly,” says Sarkissian. S arkis sian n otes that th e n ex t generation of real estate buyers seeks out their team thanks to their massive presence in the Marin marketplace as well as their renowned white-glove level of service. “We really roll up our sleeves and are hands-on from the moment we sign a listing contract. We are known to be ‘closers’. We bring our knowledge, resources and expertise to get the job done. From contracts to inspections to disclosures to negotiations, our team handles every part of the process with professionalism, necessary urgency and precision,” says Sarkissian. When asked when she had her first big break in the business, Sarkissian lights up: “I love when I get asked this question because it puts a smile on my face. Shortly after I received my

real estate license, we closed on a $10,000,000 property in Tiburon. The client was a friend of mine that I met in San Francisco. I left a lasting impression on him when we first met because I made the client feel comfortable in my presence. They were going through a difficult time and needed to hire a team that could make the transaction as smooth as possible. I will never forget the morning I got that phone call. Until this day, the client remains a close friend of ours and constantly sends me referrals. I truly appreciate the willingness to help me grow further in my career, especially as a younger agent in the market.” Gratitude is also a huge motivator for Sarkissian. “I’ve realized that in real estate, you come across all different types of people and being able to work with a diverse set of clients with varying


needs is a privilege. I’ve met some of the smartest people in the world and I learned a great deal from them. I am humbled that I have an opportunity to cross paths with people of this nature. There is nothing better than adding value to someone’s life and that is what I do in real estate.� G Magdalena Sarkissian Sarkissian Bullock Team 415.847.7913 m.sarkissian@ggsir.com GlobalEstates.com Lic.# 02028978

Anthony Cassel

- Berkeley, CA

EAST BAY ROOTS

T

he East Bay has been one of the hottest markets in the San Francisco Bay Area for several ye ar s, attracting buyers from the City, Silicon Valley and the Peninsula to the cross bridge, enjoy the sunshine and enter the housing market at a more affordable price point. Its gentrification – a phenomenon that has its benefits as well as its share of critics – has also fueled a renaissance of culture; from cuisine to the arts to city parks. Attractive, thriving communities and rising home values are at the heart of the movement attracting newcomers to the area. So is Anthony Cassel, a top agent who’s an expert in East Bay real estate thanks to his deep connections to clients and unyielding commitment to the communities he serves. A top producer at Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty, Cassel works with his wife and business partner, Maria and their passion for their work – and subsequent success – is all about trust. “This is a relationship business, and clients trust us to do what’s best for them. My goal is to treat every situation as if it were my own. I want to do what feels right, whether that means closing a deal or not. Life is too short to choose money over people or our reputations and integrity,” says Cassel. Cassel’s first brush with real estate came as early as age 18 while working with a business partner in Philadelphia, renting a historic brick warehouse where

62

Cassel began to rent out extra space and the grounds around the building. “Pretty soon the rental funds began to cover all our costs and we began generating strong cash flow without the income of our main business,” recalls Cassel. “I took this business and real estate experience with me to California at the age of 23 to help build multiple businesses with my wife Maria, some

This business is about relationships building them, supporting them and

fostering others to connect.

of which revolved around real estate investment, construction and building materials.” After having significant success, Cassel notes that many people who got to know him and Maria started looking to the pair for advice on residential homes and real estate investments. “It didn’t

take long before I realized I wanted to move my career into real estate. I was thoroughly enjoying the process of helping people achieve their home and financial goals, while at the same time applying all the business tools I learned over several years of running various companies.” In his first ‘official’ year in real estate, Cassel was named in the ranks of a top producer based on closed sales volume. He also had a multi-million dollar sale in Piedmont, while at the same time helping a desperate family get into a home for under $500,000. These and other significant moments reaffirmed his decision to get into real estate: “It felt like everything I had been doing in my career had led up to that moment.” With this momentum, Cassel continued on and has remained at the top of his game, an achievement he attributes to a strong focus on his clients’ goals. “Most of the time, people want to sell their property for the most amount of money or buy something for the best overall value. I truly believe that I am a part of a small percentage of real estate consultants that know how to maximize exposure and net profit while protecting my clients as much as I possibly can,” says Cassel. “My wide array of business and personal real estate experience plays a crucial part to creating the best plan for maximizing my clients’ goals. Just like with building businesses and investing, I am always looking for advantages or to be creative. Many times you have to think on your feet, especially during negotiations.”


63


My goal is to treat every situation as if it were my own.

After just three years in business, Cassel was honored by The California Association of Realtors® (C.A.R.) as a “Champion of Home” during the California Realtor® EXPO 2015, an award given to an individual that has changed their clients’ lives for the better, raised the standards for others, and led by example. The recognition was a major point of gratitude for Cassel, and was selected by his peers for going to great lengths on behalf of his clients and practicing business with the highest ethics and morals.

Since then, Cassel’s growing clientele are mostly referral-based and are looking for someone that has a proven track record with residential homes, luxury estates, and investment properties. The price points he serves are “all over the board” in the East Bay, but some extend outside this area. Core markets he focuses on include Alameda up to Richmond and out to Lamorinda, including Oakland, Berkeley, Kensington, Lafayette, Orinda and Piedmont. “The diversity, beautiful architecture, lifestyle, and friendly

people drew me to these areas. Despite a lot of new development there still is not enough supply, which has led to several straight years of appreciation,” says Cassel, noting that many listings attract bidding wars due to the lack of quality supply. A lack of housing supply also strikes another underlying mission for Cassel. Passionate about making a difference, Cassel is a proud supporter of Home for a Home—a San Francisco-based charity funding the construction of safe, secure homes in the poorest areas of highland Guatemala. Cassel donates a portion of his real estate commission and travels to Guatemala to help build homes for families, having made multiple trips to the region over the years. Locally, Cassel’s roots and charitable efforts—and effects—run deep: he’s worked on an initiative to provide a men’s homeless shelter in Berkeley; he and Maria are active in animal rescue groups, and they are supporters and advocates for Creative Growth, a nonprofit art studio founded in 1974 for artists with disabilities in downtown Oakland. When he isn’t working with

64


home buyers or sellers, Cassel is known to be mentoring new agents, taking them on showings, and offering support and advice. “This business is about relationships - building them, supporting them and fostering others to connect. When you immerse yourself with clients and the communities you serve, the rewards are endless. Referrals are the heartbeat of our business.� G Anthony Cassel 415.310.0066 | AnthonyECassel.com a.cassel@ggsir.com | Lic.# 01475854 Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty

EDGE of BEYOND

the

On the picturesque Southern Oregon Coast, half-way between Brookings and Florence, lies the quintessential coastal beach town of Bandon. Clean, pristine and enveloped by nature, the small, rural town sits at the mouth of the Coquille River. At one point a vibrant seaport shipping natural resources to San Francisco, today the town is the antidote for too much civilization, home to longtime locals, aging hippies, artists, writers, wealthy vacationers, and increasingly, Californians. Drawn to the crashing waves, quaint harbor and attractive home values —not to mention a world-class golf course—buyers are flocking to an unspoiled stretch of coastline for a slower, quieter pace of life. In the following pages, we take a closer look at the seaside community and catch up with one of the region’s top real estate brokers and resident, Hunter Finch.

67


T

he Southern Oregon Coast is a place like no other, some distance from anywhere else. The town of Bandon is p erhaps one of its most lovely enclaves, a seaside rural town of approximately 3,000 residents living the good life between sea and nature. An eclectic population combined with a temperate climate (think long, balmy dry summers and violent storms in winter) provides something for everyone—characters and climate included. A world away from it all, the area is a three-hour drive from the cultural and commercial hubs of Eugene, Ashland and Medford, with a major regional airport 35 minutes to the north in North Bend. Flights to San Francisco and Denver are easy, the town is lined with shops and restaurants and the wonder of the natural surrounds is endless. A vacation spot and destination resort, Bandon, Coos Bay and North

68

Bend are sister cities that combined make up the largest population center on the south coast. The area has proven a perfect fit for Californians in recent years wanting a Pacific Northwest getaway and change in lifestyle. Hunter Finch, Managing Broker and Founder of Coastal Sotheby’s International Realty has been helping Californians make the move to Bandon, Coos Bay and North Bend for over 15 years, noting an increasing influx seeking relief from the cost and stress of living in California’s major metropolitan areas. This incoming wealth is transforming the town, according to Hunter, gentrifying and improving the downtown areas and housing stock. Anecdotal evidence suggests these trends are accelerating as more boomers leave California to begin their ‘golden years’ elsewhere. Dubbed a “sophisticated haven for retirees” by The New York Times, the area has developed tastefully thanks to

California buyers in the area with dollars that stretch in seaside communities now boasting Pilates classes, high end golf courses and a new hospital. “Most of the buyers coming to us are educated, sophisticated, two-income couples from California. They are looking for a vacation or retirement home and want to relocate to an area with natural beauty, reasonable cost of living, a clean environment, low density, plentiful outdoor recreational activities and a friendly small town atmosphere,” says Finch. Old Town Bandon is a half dozen blocks of shops, eateries and galleries running along the harbor bustling with local fishermen bringing in their catch of the day. “Each town has its own flavor. Savvy buyers will often take a weeklong trip exploring each market to understand which town best fits their needs and interests,” says Finch. “It’s a great area to visit with spectacular


natural beauty and safe, small town atmospheres, which is why so many Californians are purchasing homes here. The market has outstanding real estate values.” One of the major attractions in the region is the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, one of the preeminent links courses in the world. One of the mustplay courses on par, so to speak, with Pebble Beach, its remote location and word-of-mouth reputation has elevated Bandon Dunes to a bucket-list status for die-hards of the sport. It even has its own buzzword to describe its loyal followers: the Bandonistas, a cult of golf enthusiast who claim that true golf Nirvana can only be achieved at Bandon Dunes. “The presence of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort promises to push Bandon to national prominence, offering buyers of real estate assurance that their investment here is special,” says Finch.

69


Finch himself has been a resident of Bandon for years, moving to the community at the age of 40 after nearly 20 years in consumer advertising in New York and Los Angeles for major brands including Procter & Gamble, Quaker and Nestle. Finch was drawn to Bandon after taking a much needed break. “I fell in love with the area and decided that living here was a healthier choice than returning to big city life,” recalls Finch. “My background in advertising, marketing and strategy gave me invaluable experience and skills to do my job today and welcome new residents to the community I am privileged to call home.” Today, Finch represents the finest homes in Bandon, Coos Bay, North Bend and the greater south coast area.
