One of our brand’s most important goals is to continue to grow our network and make our services available in the most sought-after markets worldwide. In particular, our brand has recently looked at ways to increase its already strong presence in key areas of the Caribbean in order to best serve the needs of those seeking extraordinary properties in tropical climates. Now William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce that our global footprint has just landed in Puerto Rico.
Our latest member of the family of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates will provide buyers with access to properties from Old San Juan to the prestigious neighborhood of San Patricio in Guaynabo to the small northern coast town of Dorado. Operating out of its flagship office in the Condado district of San Juan, Puerto Rico Sotheby’s International Realty will help clients who work with our brand with all of their real estate needs on the increasingly in-demand Island of Enchantment, whether they are searching for a historic Colonial or a magnificent mansion in an upscale area.
Every firm in our global network meets the strict criteria required for membership, such as strong local knowledge, delivery of the highest quality service and expertise in fine property, and our new affiliate is no exception. In fact, the firm is owned by an alumni agent of Sotheby’s International Realty’s East Side Manhattan brokerage in New York. With more than 28 years in luxury residential sales and experience as a senior vice president and associate broker with the Manhattan office, Margaret Pena Juvelier knows a thing or two about the exceptional service our brand is known for around the world.
Last year we succeeded in increasing our global network by over 7 percent, and so far this year we’ve expanded still further. Since the beginning of 2012 we have entered markets like Sydney, Australia and Tel Aviv, Israel, and developed our presence in Spain, Asia and Vietnam and domestically in Virginia, Florida and Brooklyn, New York. The network currently has more than 12,000 sales associates located in approximately 650 offices in 45 countries and territories. We are proud to now count Puerto Rico among the luxury markets we serve.
