On Monday, August 29th, Pacific Sothebyâ€™s International Realty held a special Architectural event at San Diegoâ€™s world renowned Museum of Contemporary Art located in the heart of La Jolla, California. The event, a two-part lecture and the final in the Architectural Specialist Series offered by Pacific Sothebyâ€™s International Realtyâ€™s Architectural Division, focused on contemporary architecture and architects as well as aspects of sustainable design and green architecture.
Jan Horn, Executive Director of Pacific Sothebyâ€™s International Realtyâ€™s Architectural Division was the featured speaker at the event. Horn, who has been featured as a guest speaker at theÂ Museum of Architecture, the Museum of Modern Art in La Jolla, the Prada Museum and the New School of Architecture in San Diego, believes with the multitude of architecturally significant properties in San Diego, there is a tremendous responsibility to provide specialized representation and marketing for these listings.
â€œOur Architectural Division enables us to raise the bar on the marketing of architectural houses and utilizes the connections we have cultivated in the architecture community,â€ says Horn. â€œThrough our certification program, our agents are able to provide their clients with a significant advantage in the representation of their unique architectural homes.â€
Pacific Sothebyâ€™s International Realtyâ€™s is the only firm in San Diego to offer an Architectural Certification Program. This is a unique curriculum that instructs and equips their real estate agents with this specialized area of knowledge.
