NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2019 / Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: VINO), a company with a collection of luxury assets, real estate holdings and premium wines in Argentina, today announced that they have reached an agreement with Compass Real Estate, in conjunction with Argentine Real Estate firm Ginevra Sotheby's International Realty, to market and sell home sites at Algodon Wine Estates, a 4,138 acre luxury real estate development with over 400 estate lots for sale in San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina.
Compass Real Estate (www.compass.com), dubbed “the country’s fastest-growing luxury real estate technology brokerage company” by Forbes Magazine, is set to revamp Algodon Wine Estates’ marketing and global sales initiatives by utilizing its network of 7,000 agents and over 1,000 employees. Compass’ business model has attracted investment capital from Fidelity, Softbank, Goldman Sachs, and several other corporations and individuals.
In addition to this, Algodon Wine Estates intends to leverage Ginevra Sotheby's International Realty brand and network with more than 18,000 sales associates located in 825 offices in 61 countries and territories worldwide, while utilizing the local expertise of the GNV Group to form Ginevra Sotheby's International Realty. Ginevra Sotheby's International Realty is a leading luxury real estate firm in Buenos Aires, Argentina with listings in the most prestigious neighborhoods in the city of Buenos Aires and the rest of the country. Through Ginevra Sotheby’s International Realty’s website (ginevrasir.com), and Compass, Algodon Wine Estates’ listings will be marketed online at sothebysrealty.com to a global clientele.
“As you know, we have embarked upon a journey to make Algodon the finest wine, wellness, culinary, and sport destination - not only in Argentina - but in in the world,” said Scott Mathis Chairman and CEO of Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. “This has culminated in us partnering with Compass, one of the fastest growing and most technologically adept real estate firms in the world. Compass, with the assistance of local Buenos Aires Real Estate agency Ginevra Sotheby's International Realty, is set to launch a major marketing push in the next quarter that could possibly reach millions of potential buyers.” He went on to say, “the road in Argentina has not been the smoothest over the past few years, but now we believe the timing could not be better… with an impending election in October, on a re-election of incumbent President Mauricio Macri, we anticipate a positive paradigm shift, attracting international interest in the Argentine economy, and in turn domestic real estate assets. It is because of this potential shift that we believe Argentina can become the global opportunity of the next decade.”
