Since 1744 Sotheby’s Auction House has been world renowned for the sale of some of the world’s most precious items such as fine art, antiques, jewellery and artefacts to name a few.
In 1976 Sotheby’s International Realty was founded on the same commitment to exceptional service and immediately became known for the distinctive properties it represents.
In April 2006 Brown’s Real Estate, owned by Julian Brown and Mark Harris, became part of Sotheby’s International Realty Network after searching for the world’s best luxury property brand that also offered an extensive global network.
New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty is a specialist agency that focuses on the sale of premium property through quality marketing and global networking. Our distinct point of difference is that ability to connect buyers and sellers globally throughout our worldwide referral system.
Our commitment to this unparalleled quality has been in place since that inception of the brand over 200 years ago. With over 18,800 independent sales associates in approximately 835 offices and 63 countries and territories, our network members utilise innovation with relevant reach to present a home in a most unique way.
Orchestrated by a dedicated team of professionals that direct thousands of distinguished global connections monthly — from licensee-to-licensee to the Auction House, these placement opportunities are managed with extreme care and discretion. The collaboration between realty and the Auction House utilises a combination of unique and exclusive marketing efforts that provide targeted exposure to a coveted and influential audience. In the global markets we serve, this distinguishes our brand in a meaningful way.
