A natural progression from priceless treasures 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 utilises 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.
Inviting. Discreet. Savvy. Refined.
Sothebyâ€™s International Realty.
1000 offices 22,500 associates 72 countries
Founded in 1976 to provide independent brokerages with a powerful marketing and referral program for luxury listings, the Sothebyâ€™s International Realty network was designed to connect the finest independent real estate companies to the most prestigious clientele in the world.
A true global network.
Our brandâ€™s referral program helps enhance revenue potential for both real estate and auction consignments by connecting our network members all around the world. From broker-to-broker to auction referrals, these opportunities are managed with extreme care to ensure impeccable, white-glove service.
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. Should a Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty associate have a client looking for a residence in New Zealand, USA or Hong Kong, it is highly likely the relationships with professionals in these markets have already been forged.
GLOBAL NETWORKING EVENT (GNE) Sotheby’s International Realty’s GNE is an international gathering for all network associates. 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. The annual conference has proven to be extremely valuable as not only a brainstorming hub, but a consistent source of leadership strategies and business innovation.
BRAND INTRODUCTION All Sotheby’s International Realty office owners and key leaders are invited to attend a brand introduction in the SIR headquarters in New Jersey, followed by a trip to the New York Sotheby’s Auction House. This introduction helps ensure that the brand is used properly and consistently throughout the network and that every office leader is equipped to maximise the brand’s offerings.
AUCTION EVENTS As associates of an extraordinary brand with a rich history, one of the most unique advantages we possess is our relationship with the Sotheby’s Auction House, a venerable name in the world of exclusive items. The auction house hosts many events every year, where Sotheby’s International Realty associates are able to meet colleagues and forge connections with auction house clientele.
Unsurpassed marketing initiatives.
Our media plan is expected to deliver over one billion impressions due to our robust partnerships with powerhouses such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Daily Telegraph and Architectural Digest. To round out our plan, create global connections and increase our exposure, we have hand-picked partners to help drive brand awareness and intelligently showcase the listings represented by our network to a broad audience of potential home buyers who value the unique.

Your project is unique.
It reflects your style and deserves to be marketed in unique ways. Exclusively. Without fanfare. With grace and expertise. Succinctly revealing what is so extraordinary about it.
In preparation for each visit, Queensland Sothebyâ€™s International Realty advertises listings, arranges for guest speakers such as attorneys to teach foreign investors how to navigate the Queensland market, and collaborates with local public relations agencies to secure coverage by the best media outlets. These efforts draw real investors to elegant meetings that take place in affiliate offices, art fairs, charity fundraisers and Sothebyâ€™s auction houses.
Artfully uniting extraordinary living spaces with extraordinary lives. The Sothebyâ€™s brand is known and respected throughout the world for representing residences 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.
Choose us for the self-same reasons our illustrious clientele choose us. 1. Exceptional service From the moment you list your project with Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty, we will preside over every detail of its sales and marketing. We will manage the selling process, from marketing your property to coordinating inspections. We will provide concise feedback at every stage. 2. Accurate appraisal Nothing spoils the sale of a project faster than unrealistic appraisals. Overpriced listings do little more than help competing agents sell their properties by comparison. Many agents overprice a development, subsequently resorting to excuses when they cannot meet expectations. We will work closely with you to establish a realistic quote price based on our expertise, local knowledge and factual information including recent comparable sales. From here our mission is to exceed your expectations and deliver exceptional results. 3. Local knowledge At Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty, our agents have extensive experience in their respective local markets.

A marketing and sales strategy targeted to your project 1. The Project A full and independent review of your project is conducted, with the emphasis on analysing its size, scope, location and positioning and how it compares to your competition. 2. Price The price of your project is paramount – high enough to maximise returns, yet not too high to stymie sales. We review your project’s pricing and conduct valuations to ensure pinpoint accuracy. 3. Buyer Extensive research to precisely determine your target market and to create buyer personas based on whether they are local or international investors, owner occupiers, downsizers, upgraders, and so forth. 4. Market In-depth review of the current market, paying careful attention to factors that may impact on sales (eg, interest rates, political uncertainty, etc). Once more, a review of how comparable projects are positioned and performing. 5. Process In conjunction with you, a selection of the best channels to optimise sales, be it via the Sotheby’s International Realty network, internal/external agents, retail shop fronts and upmarket social media such as LinkedIn and Facebook. 6. Advertising A carefully chosen selection of mediums designed to zero right in on the target market, and to drive enquiry and sales. This could be television, radio, press, upmarket magazines, outdoor, and/or a strong online campaign. The right medium at the right time.
