Sotheby’s International Realty was founded in 1976 as a real estate service for the discerning clients of Sotheby’s auction house, which was founded more than two centuries before. Since that time, it has become one of the world’s leading luxury residential brokerage firms, meeting the needs of today’s marketplace while remaining true to the principles of quality and service that Sotheby’s was founded on.

established, international client base. Because of the worldwide recognition and respect for the Sotheby’s name, our listings get the attention of the most qualified purchasers in the marketplace.
