While many real estate brands might say they are international, ours spans the globe in a way that other brands simply can’t match. We can assist clients from anywhere with their buying and selling needs in key markets all over the world. Our presence is truly worldwide, with a vast network of affiliated firms including over 12,600 sales associates working in approximately 650 offices, encompassing over 45 countries and territories. When a client in Connecticut wants to purchase a pied-a-terre in Paris, we can refer them to an agent in our network who can provide deep local knowledge, exceptional service and expertise in fine property—all of the requirements that need to be met for a company to meet our organization’s strict criteria for membership. Likewise, when a client visits an affiliated firm in Moscow and expresses interest in purchasing a country retreat with convenient access to New York City, that buyer will be referred directly to us.
Considering that many buyers today begin their real estate search online, we have carefully developed our websites with a number of unique features to meet the needs of this international audience of fine property enthusiasts. One of the most significant of these features is the ability of our websites to translate into fifteen different languages, including English, French, French Canadian, Spanish, Latin American Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, Vietnamese and more. Sophisticated buyers in cities and communities across the globe can browse listings from affiliates throughout our network and enjoy our superior photography, all while reading about these properties in the language they prefer. In addition, sothebysrealty.com offers visitors the option to convert asking prices into a range of currencies, from Argentine pesos to Bermuda dollars to British pounds to Japanese yen to South Korean won.
Our websites provide buyers from all corners of the world with the best possible online real estate search experience, one they can’t find anywhere else. In addition to lightning-fast navigation, the capability of browsing 150,000 listings worldwide from our global affiliate network, and high definition videos profiling listings, agents, community information and more, our state-of-the-art websites make finding properties as easy and convenient as possible for international visitors with our language translation and currency conversion features. Simply put, our comprehensive brand websites speak your language, wherever you are.
