Sotheby’s International Realty’s 22,500 real estate associates represent one of the few, truly interconnected networks in the real estate industry. Associates are constantly interacting and meeting new peers through numerous events hosted by our corporate network and the Sotheby’s Auction House.

Every 18 months, over 3,000 of the brand’s real estate agents join for an immersive, three-day conference featuring diverse events and seminars. The GNE is one of SIR associates’ top options for extraordinary networking, listing exposure and collective business building.
LEADERSHIP FORUM Specifically designed for business owners, managers and key leaders, it is the perfect opportunity to create long lasting relationships with influential industry professionals in the world’s most relevant luxury real estate markets.
