BlackStream joins global network
Christie’s International Real Estate is expanding into the Upstate through an affiliation with BlackStream LLC.
A new office, with 7,000 square feet of Class A space, will open in February at East Stone Avenue and East North Street in Greenville, said Ford Elliott, BlackStream’s CEO.
Elliott has a team of 30 people, including agents, support staff and management, and he plans to grow “quite a bit,” Elliott said. BlackStream also has a commercial division, SVN.
Elliott and Rick Moeser, executive director of Christie’s International Real Estate, said Christie’s is focused on marketing residential property. As such, BlackStream is expanding to this market segment under the Christie’s brand, they said.
“After successfully serving Greenville’s commercial real estate sector, Ford recently expanded BlackStream to accommodate his growing number of incoming inquiries for residential real estate support,” Moeser said. “Ford’s commitment to exceptional client service is in keeping with these same core values that Christie’s has prided itself on for 250 years. Ford is also forward thinking and has proven to be an expert in the luxury sector. His new company will be a strong addition to our international network spanning approximately 135 global affiliates with 32,000 real estate professionals in 45 countries.”
