PAUL ARTHUR CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER QUEENSLAND SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY
AT OUR FOUNDATION In the heart of London on New Bond Street in 1744, an exceptional Auction House was born with a revered tradition of marketing the world’s most cherished possessions. A tradition, more than two centuries old, that provides authentic knowledge comparable to none. Sotheby’s is recognised as the oldest company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (BID)
IMPRESSION & MODERN ART
OLD MASTER PAINTINGS
A NATURAL PROGRESSION FROM PRICELESS TREASURE TO PRESTIGIOUS PROPERTY Four decades ago, in 1976 an exceptional real estate company is launched and created from the same passion that guides the internationally famous Auction House. Today we are a commanding presence in the representation of the worldâ€™s rarest and most highly-sought properties. The collaboration between realty and auction utilizes a unique combination of exclusive marketing efforts that provide targeted exposure to a coveted and highly influential audience. In the global market we serve, this distinguishes our brand in a meaningful manner.
LEVERAGING THE BRAND The name Sothebyâ€™s has a reputation that precedes it. It is logical to expect that a company that deals exclusively with objects dâ€™art as varied as rarest-ofthe-rare automobiles, artwork (both contemporary and old masters), jewellery, watches and wine, should make the transition to premium property, projects and developments. After all, we are simply servicing the same clients.
ARTFULLY UNITING EXTRAORDINARY HOMES WITH EXTRAORDINARY LIVES Our brand is known throughout the world for representing homes that embody the rich tapestry of varied lifestyles, distinct settings and diverse locales. Where the utmost quality is considered intrinsic. Where the essence of the extraordinary is defined.
