1744 - Today
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.
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.
