SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY®
Established in 1976 as a real estate division to service the clients of Sotheby’s esteemed auction house, Sotheby’s International Realty® quickly became perhaps the world’s leading luxury residential brokerage firm. It has remained true to the code of uncompromising quality and unsurpassed service that have been synonymous with the Sotheby’s name for more than two centuries, while meeting the demands of today’s marketplace.
Its network of international offices and continued connection to the Sotheby’s auction house allow Sotheby’s International Realty® to provide unparalleled consulting, marketing and brokerage services for distinctive properties. That same worldwide scope as well as the respect and recognition the name Sotheby’s enjoys allow the real estate division’s sales associates unsurpassed access to the global marketplace and highly qualified international buyers.
Although Sotheby’s International Realty® brokerage offices have set selling price records throughout the world and have represented the sale of many extraordinary estates, their approach to representing property has proven to be advantageous in a range of prices.
The firm’s offices — located in key residential and resort markets including New York, London, Cape Cod, the Hamptons, Aspen, Palm Beach, San Francisco, and Beverly Hills – provide a tradition of white glove service and commitment to clientele as well as vital support for sales associates.
When clients put this prestigious company’s local connections and knowledge together with a 260 year tradition of global reach, they have an unparalleled marketing opportunity for their properties. Only Sotheby’s International Realty® is backed by a 260 year tradition of excellence and global influence, allowing its agents to present properties in all price ranges to a distinguished portfolio of highly qualified local and international clientele.
WINE COUNTRY BROKERAGE
Conveniently located on the picturesque and historical Sonoma Plaza, the Sotheby’s International Realty® Wine Country brokerage, home office of the distinguished team of Martin & Sebastiani, specializes in fine homes and vineyard estates, ranches, vineyards and vacation properties. Its coverage area includes a breathtaking swath of California north of the Golden Gate Bridge and stretching from the Sonoma Coast, inland to the eastern slope defining the Napa Valley. The region’s charming communities include the towns of Napa and Sonoma as well as St. Helena, Rutherford, Yountville, Calistoga, Healdsburg, Glen Ellen, Kenwood and Santa Rosa. This is California’s oldest wine-producing region and the one for which the State has become internationally-renown when it comes to the production of world-class wines.
Its viticulture is only one facet of the area’s riches, however. Its agreeable weather, plentiful recreational activities, cultural richness and plethora of superb dining and shopping opportunities create an ambiance of relaxed luxury. It is only fitting, therefore, that Sotheby’s International Realty® and the team of Martin & Sebastiani play an integral role in the representation of fine properties within the region.
