Pacific Sothebyâ€™s International Realty, one of San Diegoâ€™s fastest-growing luxury real estate companies, is pleased to announce the formation of their new Architectural Division. Architecture expert Jan Eric Horn will serve as the Executive Director of the division, which will focus on representing both historical and contemporary architect-designed properties. The Architectural Division at Pacific Sothebyâ€™s International Realty will offer clients the distinctive representation and specialized marketing strategies needed to effectively sell these unique homes.
“With the multitude of architecturally significant properties in San Diego we see tremendous opportunity and benefit to our clients in offering them specialized representation for these listings,â€ says Steve Games, Chairman, Pacific Sothebyâ€™s Realty. â€œJan has the proven leadership and experience to successfully build this division to become the leading resource for Architectural properties in our market.â€
