Our brand

In 1976, an exceptional real estate company is launched and created from the same passion that guides the Auction House. Today, we are a commanding presence in the representation of the world’s most unique properties. The Sotheby’s International Realty® brand artfully unites extraordinary homes with extraordinary lives throughout the world.

Our commitment to unparalleled quality has been in place since the inception of the brand over 200 years ago. With more than 26,000 independent sales associates in over 1,000 offices and 81 countries and territories, our network members utilise innovation with relevant reach to present a home in a most unique way. Our brand’s white glove referral program is a key differentiator, allowing network members to connect the most prestigious buyers and sellers globally.

Orchestrated by a dedicated team of professionals that direct thousands of distinguished global connections monthly — from licensee-to-licensee to Auction, these placement opportunities are managed with extreme care and discretion. The collaboration between realty and auction utilises a combination of unique and exclusive marketing efforts that provide targeted exposure to a coveted and influential audience. In the global markets we serve, this distinguishes our brand in a meaningful way.
