In 1976, Sotheby’s International Realty was founded as a logical expansion to the services offered by Sotheby’s Auction House. The company management at that time were in this way able to fulfil what numerous clients had expressed a desire for; they did not just want to be able to buy unusual works of art and jewellery, they also wanted to buy unusual properties in the most fascinating and beautiful places in the world. From an innovative brand strategy came enormous growth and today, after almost 40 years, Sotheby’s International Realty has over 760 offices worldwide with 16,500 employees and spread across 60 countries. In this area as well, clients find the usual high level of expertise that represents the cornerstone of the firm’s tradition.
The Sotheby’s International Realty network offers access to luxury real estate and homes worldwide. The brand’s prestige not only gains access to exceptional real estate but also to exceptional people.
