Clients entrusting the marketing of cherished assets to Sotheby's requested an equally comprehensive service to handle their real estate. In response to this demand, Sotheby's formed Sotheby's International Realty in 1976.
Founded on the high standards that characterized the auction house for more than 200 years, Sotheby's International Realty was perfectly positioned to redefine expectations in the real estate marketplace.
Since this distinguished beginning, Sotheby's International Realty has broadened our mission and become one of the leading luxury residential brokerage firms. Our local and global offices today serve a range of property types, locations and price points. While maintaining a strong relationship with Sotheby's auction house and its clients, we are now owned by NRT Incorporated, the nation's largest residential real estate company, giving us access to a unique and powerful combination of resources.
