Last night Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty’s Cambridge office was lucky enough to host Hasan Semerci, founder and principal of Adnan & Hasan, a handwoven carpet and kilims company from Istanbul, Turkey. Hasan and his team helped kickstart Gibson’s brand new Artisan Series. He presented his ornately designed, hand woven Turkish rugs, and shared his knowledge of weaving techniques from Persia to Central Asia. It was Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty’s pleasure to learn more about this art form and to have the opportunity to purchase such finely crafted pieces.
“We were honored to host this Artisan Series at our Cambridge office, as we embrace the natural relationship that exists between the art of Sotheby’s Auction House and the extraordinary homes of Sotheby’s International Realty. Our exclusive magazine, “Art & Home” is an example of the literary collaboration between the art and real estate worlds. We hope that these series of events will continue to draw in members from our local communities to meet and learn from these specialized artists and craftsmen.” – Larry Rideout, CEO & Co-Owner

The old saying, “the three most valuable components of real estate are location, location & location” is so because this is something you cannot change. This is the case because everything else can be improved. However, in urban areas it has become widely accepted that two of the “locations” in this equation have been replaced with square footage & amenities. Today’s highly competitive market has meant (for most of us) that buying a new home is met with more concessions than requirements.
