Sotheby’s first-ever sale was that of a library of several hundred scarce and valuable books
Since the founding of the Sotheby’s Auction House in 1744, the Sotheby’s name has earned renown as a marketer of the world’s most valuable and prestigious possessions. This reputation is built as much upon exceptional service to clients as on the notable art, antiques, jewelry and other holdings that pass through Sotheby’s offices around the world. Our association with the Sotheby's Brand is truly what sets us apart because it is more than just an Auction House. It’s the ultimate destination where collectors gather to indulge their desires and share their knowledge.
The year is 1976. Sotheby’s recognizes that the firm can serve its auction clients in a valuable new way with a complete package of estate disposition services. Founded on the same commitment to exceptional service that characterized the firm’s dealings for more than two centuries, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand is born and soon becomes known around the world for the distinctive properties it represents. Today we continue that focus by employing our brand’s vision of artfully uniting extraordinary homes with extraordinary lives.
The Sotheby’s International Realty brand was established to connect the finest real estate companies to the most prestigious clientele in the world. Today our network boasts more than 12,000 sales associates in over 660 offices in 49 countries and territories, sharing thousands of referrals around the world.

Regular Market Updates
We will keep you up to date on what steps are being taken to market your property. As well, we will provide any feedback on showings or inquiries.
Market research assists in determining the value of your property. The comparative market analysis considers comparable active, sold and expired listings. Your property value is closely tied to the history of prices in your same region. Your property will need to be uniquely positioned to create maximum interest and help produce the highest possible financial return. Ultimately the selling price will be determined by not only comparable properties but by current buyers. Buyers will establish the “worth” that your property holds for them. Although the listing price you place on your property will influence its sale, there are many other factors that come into play. Some of these factors are within your control, others are not. Examples include:
Factors Not Within Your Control
Your property's location
Recent property market values
Current economic conditions
Factors Within Your Control
Your property's distinctive and compelling attributes
The physical condition of your property (home and grounds)
The flexibility of your closing date
The ready access of your property for showing
The selection of the real estate representative you choose to represent you.
