This Fall Sotheby’s will present Bowie | Collector

Musician. Actor. Icon. David Bowie was one of the most recognizable and revered artists in the world. The legendary performer was also a passionate collector with deep connections to modern and contemporary artworks and their makers. This November, Sotheby’s London will present Bowie/Collector, a three-part sale encompassing some 400 objects from the personal holdings of a man who approached collecting with the same inspired sense of individualism that defined his own fiercely original art.

Here is a first look at the works that inspired and energized David Bowie.

From November 1–10, the collection will be exhibited at Sotheby’s New Bond Street galleries in London, giving fans, collectors, art lovers and experts a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse themselves in the extraordinary range of objects that informed Bowie’s private world. Ahead of the landmark ten-day event in London, preview exhibitions will be held in Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong. Full details are listed below.

Welcome Dion Lopez to The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty

Dion Lopez, The Lipman Group Sotheby's International RealtyDion Lopez used to consider himself a Texan but after twenty years of working in Nashville and the surrounding areas he has changed status to “Nashville Native.”

blockquoteNashville’s vibrant music industry originally brought me to Nashville, which I enjoyed for over a decade. The achievements that I have been blessed with in the Music Business, many could only dream of. Over those years I traveled to Miami and Los Angeles on business and I saw just how adept property owners were at highlighting the architectural features and potential nighttime use of a property with lighting. Inspired, I decided Nashville was ready for my property enhancement company. As the years progressed a true passion for real estate surfaced.

Dion became a real estate investor and went on to help other investors acquire properties in many areas around Tennessee for very attractive prices, often at pennies on the dollar. When it came time to sell these investments he knew needed to become an affiliate broker.

blockquoteWhen it came time to align with a firm there was no question but to go with the best in town. I’m here to achieve the best I can for my clients, be it those dreaming to buy their first home or long time investor. I go the extra mile for my clients. I am the kind of person that’s not afraid to knock on doors and make offers on property where there is no inventory available. I like to be challenged and I like the “art” of making things happen and I would like to do it for you.

Nashville Home Sales Are High—but if Not for Low Inventory, They’d Be Even Higher

Nashville home sales continue to make headlines not only locally, but nationally. In fact, Freddie Mac recently ranked Nashville the top housing market in the country. Check out Freddie Mac’s news release here and explore the numbers for Nashville and other cities.

Nashville Home Sales Are High—but if Not for Low Inventory, They’d Be Even HigherThe Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS® reported year-over-year home sales were up in June and for the first quarter of 2016 as a whole. Houses are flying off the market at the fastest rate since 2007, so we know that buyers must be working hard to find that perfect home and get it under contract. Harder than ever, perhaps.

Insights from daily surveys of visitors to realtor.com® tell us that their biggest challenge is the low inventory of available homes, which is holding us back from seeing even more sales.

In June, the No.1 obstacle to making a purchase, as reported by 40% of buyers on realtor.com, was simply finding a home that met their needs. This was also the top problem last June, but then only 37% of buyers reported the issue.

And it’s no wonder that more people are reporting that just finding a home is a problem. We have about 13% more people looking to buy this summer, yet there are fewer homes for sale.

If you are thinking about selling, now is the time to do so. The fall will be affected by factors such as school starting, weather shifting, and a new president gets elected. All will likely make this fall slower than usual, especially relative to the very busy spring and summer. Our expert agents at The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty have the skills, knowledge and connections to sell your home in the shortest amount of time.
