The Realogics Sotheby’s Difference

Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty builds upon a 267-year heritage creating the preeminent real estate brokerage in the Pacific Northwest, one client at a time. Our accomplishments will not be measured by the quantity of listings or by the number of our agents in our brokerage, rather by the quality of the properties we represent and by the results we create for our clients. A client of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty in Washington is a client through all of our global offices via our proprietary global marketing and distribution initiatives. This close-knit network promotes relationships and referrals through face-to-face network functions, a robust digital marketing platform and special events worldwide.

Since 2010, Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty has become the Pacific Northwest’s largest affiliate within our quickly-expanding global real estate network. We are distinguished by the brokers we employ, the properties we represent and the results we create.

Consistently among the top ten largest aggregated real estate brands in the Puget Sound region, our brokers maintain the highest average listing and selling prices in the markets we serve. We are productive too, generating more than a half billion dollars in annualized sales and earning our firm the highest average closing volume on a per broker basis when compared with our peer group. For 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015 the Puget Sound Business Journal named Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty one of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in Washington.

Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty offers one-of-a-kind marketing resources, including exclusive advertising platforms such as the Home of the Day on the Puget Sound Business Journal, custom co-op ads in targeted regional media publications, and exposure on distinctive global micro-sites including the WSJ.com and NYT.com.

Our listings are marketplace standouts with 100% local coverage through RSIR.com and NWMLS feeds on our competitor’s websites, plus 100% global coverage exclusively on SothebysRealty.com. This unmatched global exposure boasts industry-leading website visitation, with more than 1 million unique visits a month, 45% of which originate from outside the United States.

We believe that real estate, like people, can be exceptional for many reasons – price is merely one measurement. So while our brand may be recognized by the world’s most affluent consumers, we recognize what matters most – you and your goals. That’s why we maintain the most comprehensive suite of marketing tools whether we’re selling an affordable condominium or a grand estate.

In the heart of London on New Bond Street in 1744, an exceptional Auction House was born with a revered tradition of marketing the world’s most cherished possessions. A tradition, more than two centuries old, that provides authentic knowledge comparable to none. As the oldest company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (BID), Sotheby’s has a global network of 90 offices in 40 countries. Today, Sotheby’s presents auctions in eight different salesrooms including New York, London, Hong Kong and Paris. Sotheby’s offers collectors the resources of Sotheby’s Financial Services, the world’s only full service art financing company as well as private sale opportunities in more than 70 categories, including S|2, the gallery arm of Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Department, and two retail businesses, Sotheby’s Diamonds and Sotheby’s Wine.

In 1976, an exceptional real estate company was launched and created from the same passion that guides the Sotheby’s Auction House. With the vision of becoming a commanding presence in the representation of the world’s most unique properties, it is the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand that strives to represent all those who consider themselves the “Connoisseurs of Life,” and to represent the distinctive properties they so desire.
Our commitment to quality can be found in the people we employ and the clients we represent. We know that specialization is the key to success and so diversity requires a collective of specialists. That’s why we’ve attracted many of the region’s top producers representing inventory from sea to sky and everything in between. We proudly represent distinctive properties of all types and price ranges within the state of Washington including the greater Seattle area, the Eastside, Bainbridge Island, Kitsap County, the Olympic Peninsula and north to Alaska. We serve the very best in the Northwest.

Our team has been recognized with more than 125 regional and national awards for sales and marketing excellence. Having affiliated with the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand, we now have access to a global marketplace, providing our agents and our clients with every possible advantage available in the industry.
