Sotheby’s auction house is a company with a centuries-old tradition of bringing together buyers and sellers of fine property. Our unique association with a brand that has such a reverential heritage provides us with the ability to connect with powerful client groups in several ways. These include direct marketing to Sotheby’s established base of qualified clients, networking opportunities through participation in special global auction events, and maintaining a presence in Sotheby’s auction locations worldwide through dedicated realty liaisons and kiosk displays.
Sotheby’s International Realty’s local, national and global marketing strength, an all-important factor in attracting qualified buyers, cannot be matched. In addition to marketing experts in each of our local offices dedicated to developing individual advertising plans that are tailored to each property, our network has professional marketing staff in key regional centers including Manhattan, Miami, London and Hong Kong. Their objective is to ensure our listings receive the attention and exposure they deserve throughout the world.

We showcase our listings in a variety of beautifully designed print and online proprietary publications that we share with our clients and offices around the world.

Just as Sotheby’s has sold some of the world’s most precious objects, we have set price records with the sale of many spectacular homes. At the same time, we specialize in fine properties in all price ranges, as the homes we represent share a distinctive character rather than a particular price. While our record sales and the quality of our listings have contributed to the worldwide renown of our name, we are best known for our exceptional service. Who we are and how we represent our clients are constants that achieve results for our sellers, regardless of the listing price.
