For three centuries, the Sotheby’s name has been synonymous with the exceptional. A name that not only represents the most prized possessions in the world, but in fact decides them. Originally British and now headquartered in New York City, Sotheby’s is a pioneering business that offers the world’s most discerning clientele the opportunity to sell or acquire the rarest treasures. With over 90 Sotheby’s offices and 1,000 Sotheby’s International Realty offices, the brand is built for unmatched, white-glove service.
Art BusinessIn The World
Sotheby’s maintains auction houses throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. It has an annual turnover in excess of $5 billion, making it the largest art business in the world. In turn, Sotheby’s International Realty has many exclusive and unsurpassed opportunities to market the extraordinary residences represented by our network to auction house clients through print and interactive advertising. Our exclusive event sponsorship opportunities also lead to superb listing exposure.
Founded in 1976 to provide independent brokerages with a powerful marketing and referral program for luxury listings, the Sotheby’s International Realty network was designed to connect the finest independent real estate companies to the most prestigious clientele in the world. Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC is a subsidiary of Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY), a global leader in real estate franchising and provider of real estate brokerage, relocation and settlement services.
Our brand’s referral program helps enhance revenue potential for both real estate and auction consignments by connecting our network members all around the world. From broker-to-broker to auction-to-broker to broker-to-auction referrals, these opportunities are managed with extreme care to ensure impeccable, white-glove service.
Sotheby’s International Realty’s thousands of real estate associates represent one of the few, truly interconnected networks in the real estate industry. Associates are constantly interacting and meeting new peers through numerous events hosted by our corporate network and the Sotheby’s Auction House. Should a ONE Sotheby’s International Realty associate have a client looking for a residence in Paris, Brazil or Hong Kong, it is highly likely the relationships with professionals in these markets have already been forged.
Sotheby’s International Realty’s GNE is an international gathering for all network associates. Every 18 months, over 3,000 of the brand’s real estate agents join for an immersive conference featuring diverse events and seminars. The GNE is one of all SIR associates’ top options for extraordinary networking, listing exposure and collective business building.
Every year, we meet with the owners of the top 10 Sotheby’s International Realty affiliates in the US to exchange ideas, best practices and find ways to leverage each others’ networks all for the benefit of our clients. Our goal through this exclusive group is to continually grow, innovate and reach affluent markets across the US through our invaluable SIR connections.
All Sotheby’s International Realty office owners and key leaders are invited to attend a brand introduction in the SIR headquarters in New Jersey, followed by a trip to the New York Sotheby’s Auction House. This introduction helps ensure that the brand is used properly and consistently throughout the network and that every office leader is equipped to maximize the brand’s offerings.
As associates of an extraordinary brand with a rich history, one of the most unique advantages we possess is our relationship with the Sotheby’s Auction House, a venerable name in the world of exclusive items. The auction house hosts many events every year, where Sotheby’s International Realty associates are able to meet colleagues and establish connections with auction house clientele.
