Sotheby's International Realty

History

Sotheby's International Realty (SIR) was founded in 1976 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sotheby's Holdings, Inc.  A natural extension of Sotheby's auction services, SIR's early mission was to assist fine arts, furniture and collectibles clients in buying and selling distinctive properties.  Since that time, SIR has evolved into a worldwide organization serving an international customer base.  Today, the company provides brokerage, marketing and consulting services for luxury residential properties, including estates, ranches, farms and resorts, in markets around the world.

About Our Business

SIR provides real estate clients with a global network of brokerage operations, including 16 company-owned brokerage offices and five regional offices.  Our company-owned brokerage offices are located on the upper East Side and in SoHo; Southampton, Bridgehampton and East Hampton, Greenwich, Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Santa Barbara and San Francisco, Santa Fe, and Jackson Hole.

In Europe and the Middle East, Sotheby's International Realty maintains brokerage offices in London and Paris and has affiliates in the U.K., France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, Sweden and Israel.  In the Far East, the worldwide network is further supported with Sotheby's International Realty offices in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, and South Korea.

Many of the newest offices have already expanded. In 1998, SIR relocated its San Francisco office to a larger site in Jackson Square, the city's antiques district.  During the first quarter of 1999, SIR's Bridgehampton office expanded, and in July, 1999, the Santa Fe brokerage office began its operation at a larger site in a newly renovated, 6,000-square-foot landmark building on the historic Paseo de Peralta.  In January 2000, after just one year of operation, SIR's Jackson Hole's brokerage moved to a 6,000-square-foot office close to the center of town.
