The Sotheby’s International Realty® Advantage

Miami-Dade County


The power of the Sotheby’s brand. We are the recognized leader in luxury real estate. Sotheby’s International Realty (SIR) has been named “the most prestigious real estate firm by high worth consumers” in the independent Luxury Brand Status Index Survey by Luxury Institute.

Global reach and local expertise. We provide unrivaled access to qualified people and distinctive properties around the world. And unrivaled expertise in every major market. Yes, we have over 500 offices in 39 countries. We constantly network with and refer business with our fellow Sotheby's International Realty estate agents. In addition, we travel the world presenting our real estate offerings to customers of the Sotehby's auction house, sponsoring key sales each year. No other broker is more thoroughly networked or more closely aligned with affluent travelers, collectors and property owners.

The difference runs deep. More than just a loose membership and a logo in the window, ours is a tightly interconnected partnership. It is a long-term commitment to a set of very high standards, resulting in a worldwide culture of excellence. And a consistency within the Sotheby’s brand that our clients can count on every day, in every market.

Powerful tools, powerful partners. We believe the presentation of luxury real estate must be exceptional, befitting the scale and character of the property itself. That’s why we have created the most robust, content-rich and high-quality property showcase in the industry. In print and online, we dominate in physical space and mindshare. We have established exclusive positions with best-in-class media partners, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Financial Times, Architectural Digest and others. Plus Sotheby’s own prestigious periodicals Sotheby’s at Auction magazine and Reside: A Celebration of Art, Home and Living. Our comprehensive print campaign in WSJ Magazine, Country Life, T Magazine, Financial Times and Sotheby’s at Auction drives highly qualified traffic to our website sothebysrealty.com. (Our competitors have no comparable print campaign.) Plus, we are engaged in a variety of mobile applications and new media to accommodate our on-the-go clientele.

When all is said and done. We know the high end residential market better than anyone. We have more resources at our command. And, most importantly, we get results — as you are about to see.


The ONE Sotheby’s International Realty Advantage Our average sales price is $1,962,124 — the highest in our market areas. Another key indicator that our business is weighted at the luxury end of the price spectrum. Our focus on top tier properties means we are focused on you.
