Burien With six miles of shoreline and epic mountain views, Burien is a young and upcoming city. Burien’s location shines in the minds of many.

The location also means that entertainment is convenient, the parking problems are elsewhere, and a slower pace prevails in the residential neighborhoods. Median Price Year-Over-Year

GNE // 2017 LAS VEGAS


In late September, a group of brokers representing Marketplace Sotheby’s International Realty flew into Las Vegas for Sotheby’s global networking event – a much anticipated annual occasion gathering real estate professionals from all corners of the world in one place, to share best practices, innovations and the company’s vision for the future, with a passion that is intoxicating. From its auction house beginnings in 1744, to the launch of its real estate franchise in 1976, the Sotheby’s approach to selling homes has always been founded on diligent client care, with service excellence at its core. But perhaps one of its defining philosophies is one of evolution and diversification, in order to meet and exceed its client needs, in an ever-evolving market. One that harnesses the power of globality, cutting edge digital marketing, extensive media networks and emerging technologies such as virtual reality. One that continually enhances its approach to video, photography and printed visuals that showcase the house, the home, the lifestyle.

IT DEFINES A LIFESTYLE; ONE THAT IS

And life is in fact at the heart of Sotheby’s new marketing campaign and core company values. A mission statement that was greeted by thunderous applause. The “live” campaign for 2018 extracts what lies at the core of what we do; it focuses in on what makes a property a home, what makes a building unique, which features define warmth, love, passion, functionality, relaxation, creativity, happiness and peace – in your home. It defines a lifestyle: one that is distinct, special and unique. The extensive tools through which we portray these lifestyles in order to best market your home, are constantly being finetuned, so that we may remain at the cutting edge of our markets, and continue to deliver exceptional service to you.

...CONTINUED... GNE // 2017 // LAS VEGAS

Martha Stewart and Ritz-Carlton’s senior corporate director of culture transformation, Jeff Hargett, delivered inspirational speeches at the event. Both exuded the foundational values that are at the epicenter of who we are: how care, passion, hard work and a vision that puts the customer at the heart of every business decision has propelled these brands to stellar heights. And in the case of Stewart, made her a household name.

THAT’S WHAT OUR BRAND IS ALL ABOUT. MSIR broker Matt Hart, who attended the global conference, said: “Martha Stewart embodies lifestyle, and that’s what our brand is all about. So, having the opportunity to listen to her story and hear her perspective, was both empowering and motivating. Our company culture is one that drives innovation and embraces change, to maintain market leadership; and so it was inspiring to have the opportunity to hear so many cutting edge ideas and learn from top brokers from all over the world. To be able to bring some of that back home with us and incorporate that into our own business is really going to help us grow to that next level, and provide best in class services to my clients.” We are proud to be working within a brand that takes its customers and their homes to heart. One that understands the art of selling the way of life that comes with every home. One that appreciates the beauty in each property, at any price point. And one that is focused on giving back too. Sotheby’s International Realty has in fact partnered with New Story, an emergent non-profit that builds communities of homes for those in need across the globe, giving its brokers the opportunity to also give back and provide a life, via the donation of a home, to those who need it most.
