Jackson Hole Sotheby’s Office Changes Ownership

Jeff and Olivia Hornig have purchased Jackson Hole’s Sotheby’s Office, bringing to close five years of stewardship under Utah’s Huntsman family. Current owners of the Lake Sotheby’s Office in Minnesota, the Hornigs have put their years of Twin Cities real estate prowess to great use, growing their office staff from 15 to 90 agents in just seven years and achieving a ranking of 28 out of 825 Sotheby’s offices worldwide in sales volume.
Jackson Hole’s appeal made the purchase an easy choice for the Hornig family. As Jeff explained to the Jackson Hole News & Guide, he’s made his chief goal “communicating to other markets how special this place is and why this is the destination, this is the place to be.” He not only extolled the valley’s draw but also its down-to-earth charm: “You can buy whatever you want…but you’re wearing a pair of Carhartts around town. There’s something about that confidence and enjoying the lifestyle.”
The success enjoyed by Sotheby’s in the valley will be complemented by newer facilities and a push to open the valley’s market to a larger stage. For now, the Hornigs are making a point “to listen and learn,” taking advantage of the great wealth of knowledge found in the Jackson Hole office. The Horning’s enthusiasm is infectious.
“We just can’t wait to get started.”
