Sotheby’s International Realty, one of the world’s most prestigious real estate brokerage firms, was founded in 1976 to serve clients of Sotheby’s auction house. Since that time, the Sotheby’s real estate division has been meeting the needs of today’s marketplace while remaining true to the principles of quality and service upon which the auction firm was founded.
With offices throughout the world, Sotheby’s International Realty provides brokerage, marketing and consulting services for distinctive properties including estates, ranches, resorts, and vineyards and wineries. Communicating property information and marketing those listings quickly and efficiently through the firm’s network and a continued connection to Sotheby’s auction businesses, the brokerage offices can reach an established client base almost instantaneously. Our company’s worldwide recognition, and respect for the Sotheby’s name earn the attention of the most qualified purchasers in the marketplace.
While Sotheby’s International Realty offices have set many selling price records and handled the sale of some of the world’s most extraordinary estates, the firm’s comprehensive approach to selling property has proven effective for quality listings in a range of prices. While its average sales price is consistently of over $1.5million, more than half of its annual sales are for properties priced under $1million.
Sotheby’s International Realty brokerage offices are located in key residential and resort markets including London, Manhattan, San Francisco, Los Angles, Tokyo, Aspen, Vail, Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara and in the wine country of California’s Santa Ynez, Napa and Sonoma Valleys
In the internationally renowned Santa Barbara area, Sotheby’s International Realty maintains seven offices: three in Montecito, as well as one each in Carpinteria, Goleta, Santa Ynez and Santa Barbara. Approximately 250 full-time brokers and associates are devoted to the guiding principle that the client deserves the utmost in service. While the firm has grown and expanded over the years, it has always valued and maintained its strong commitment to discerning past, present and future clientele.
Those of us at Sotheby’s International Realty® are looking forward to surpassing your expectations.
