Hogan Associates brings Christie’s International Real Estate back to Rhode Island as their exclusive affiliate


Partnership brings the Christie’s International Real Estate brand back to Newport, Rhode Island 


CHICAGO and NEWPORT, R.I. (Sept. 1, 2022) – Leading Newport, Rhode Island, real estate brokerage Hogan Associates has joined the Christie’s International Real Estate network as the luxury brand’s newest affiliate. In connection with the move, Hogan Associates will rebrand as Hogan Associates Christie’s International Real Estate. 

Established by Leslie Hogan and Matt Hadfield in 2009, Hogan Associates Christie’s International Real Estate is one of the top independently-owned brokerages in the region with approximately 40 agents averaging $7.5 million in closed transaction volume per year. The firm serves the coastal communities of southern Rhode Island and has offices in Newport and Middletown. 

The move marks the return of Christie’s International Real Estate to Newport, where the brand had a significant presence from 1987 until early 2021. 

“We are incredibly proud to be the brokerage firm that brings Christie’s International Real estate back to the region,” said Leslie Hogan, broker/co-owner of Hogan Associates Christie’s International Real Estate. “Christie’s International Real Estate’s luxury pedigree and global network will enable us to provide a higher level of service along with marketing and technology that surpasses anything I’ve seen in this industry.” 

The partnership also revives the local real estate industry’s connection to Christie’s, the world-leading art and luxury business that has served a Newport clientele for much of its 256-year history. 

“The auction house connection is very meaningful in Newport given the rich history, culture and luxury profile of the area,” said Matt Hadfield. 

Named “Best Real Estate Agency” in the Newport Daily News reader poll three years running, Hogan Associates Christie’s International Real Estate is also experiencing substantial growth in sales volume and Aquidneck Island market share. 

“Hogan Associates is quintessential Newport – an independent, owner-led firm with strong local expertise and relationships. They are exactly the kind of company we want representing Christie’s International Real Estate in one of the most important luxury markets in the Northeast,” said Thad Wong, co-CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate. “This relationship is also important to our network. Many Christie’s International Real Estate affiliates around the world have clients with an interest in Newport, given its unique history and important place in the global sailing community.”

Newport was the site of 12 America’s Cup races between 1930 and 1983. It is also home to the Naval War College, the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and the world-famous Newport Jazz Festival and Newport Folk Festival.


The addition of Hogan Associates further extends the Christie’s International Real Estate brand in the Northeast. Last month the company introduced Christie’s International Real Estate Atlantic Brokerage as its new affiliate for Outer Cape Cod and Nantucket Island; and recently, the network renewed its relationship with LandVest Christie’s International Real Estate, which has offices throughout Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. 


Hogan Associates Christie’s International Real Estate is involved in a number of local organizations and charities. The company supports Newport International Polo Series, the Newport International Boat Show, Music at The Fort, the Martin Luther King Center, Newport Classical Summer Festival, Newport Art Museum’s ‘Wet Paint’ auction and the Ida Lewis Yacht Club Distance Race. In 2013, the firm established Project Re-Give, a charity that collects duplicate or unwanted gifts and distributes them to people in need throughout the year to celebrate birthdays and holidays.
