The Connections - A Global Network: With a network of more than 10,000 sales associates located in more than 500 offices in 36 countries and territories worldwide, Sotheby's International Realty provides unrivaled worldwide connections. With today's globalization and international markets, the likelihood of a buyer from abroad is ever increasing. Sotheby's International Realty affiliates do business throughout the U.S., Argentina, France, Portugal, New Zealand, and beyond. We are know for selling some of the world's most extraordinary estates, and our comprehensive approach to selling property has proven effective for quality listings in a range of areas and prices. We consistently maintain an average sales price of approximately $1.5 million, yet more than 50% of our annual sales are for properties priced under $1 million. We truly offer our clients a world of opportunities.

We are the on-line leader in emarketing in terms of prime placement, maximum coverage and guaranteed exposure to over 180 million visitors each month. These ads not only reach potential buyers, but build Sotheby's brand awareness and direct traffic to Sothebyshomes.com.
