Sotheby’s International Realty
Sotheby’s was founded in London on March 11, 1744, when Samuel Baker auctioned several hundred scarce and valuable books for a few hundred pounds. Today the Auction House has expanded to offer the best in over 70 categories including Fine and Decorative Arts, Jewelry and Wine. Sotheby’s maintains 90 locations in 40 countries and conducts 250 auctions each year. It was out of this rich heritage that an international real estate brand was founded in 1976, in part to serve clients desiring a complete package of estate disposition services. Today, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand offers the same commitment to exceptional service that has characterised Sotheby’s for more than two centuries.
The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has more than 11,000 sales associates located in approximately 500 offices in more than 40 countries and territories worldwide, and places over 7,500 referrals every year. The Sotheby’s International Realty network consists of leading brokerages located in many of the world’s most beautiful and highly-desired locations — an exceptional group of professionals who are committed to exceeding your needs. Working with these fine real estate experts provides you with their experience as well as access to marketing and advertising campaigns exclusive to Hunter Sotheby’s International Realty clientele.
