Washington, DC – Thursday, March 22, 2012
Beasley Real Estate, Washington DC’s boutique luxury real estate firm, and Bonhams, the international fine art auction house, are pleased to announce their strategic partnership in the Washington, DC area.
Bonhams, founded in 1793 in London, is one of the world's largest auctioneers of fine art and antiques. Today, Bonhams offers more sales than any of its rivals, with a worldwide network of offices and regional representatives in 25 countries offering sales advice and valuation services in 60 specialist areas. The Washington, DC region fine art and antique market necessitated the establishment of a regional office, headed by Dr. Martin Gammon.
“Bonhams is delighted to be linked to a real estate firm with such deep roots in the community,” said Bonhams Washington D.C. Regional Representative Dr. Martin Gammon. “I look forward to working with Beasley clients and offering them our expertise and services as an international market leader.”
There is an innate connection between art and luxury real estate. Traditionally, the greatest art collections are housed in the world’s most beautiful homes. Through their partnership, Beasley and Bonhams will link the two together in a way that is effortless to all of their clients.
“We are so pleased to have Bonhams as a resource for our clients,” declared Jim Bell, Founder and Managing Partner, Beasley Real Estate. “Beasley is always looking for ways to better serve our clients. It is a natural development to connect our clients, some of the biggest art collectors in the city, with Bonhams services.”
To celebrate the new partnership, the two firms are hosting an invitation only reception at The George Town Club on April 5, 2012. On display for the event will be highlights from their forthcoming New York Books & Manuscripts sale, “The Mapping and Discovery of America,” featuring foundational documents from the early days of American exploration.
