most discerning buyers keep company with us.
Throughout its storied history Sotheby's auction house has earned a reputation for expertise in the valuation and sale of fine possessions. Sotheby’s International Realty® maintains this distinguished reputation in real estate. Just as Sotheby’s has sold some of the world’s most precious objects at record prices, we have set price records with the sale of many spectacular homes. While these sales have contributed to the worldwide renown of the Sotheby's name, it is the expertise and service we provide for which we are best known.

A SAVVY AND STYLISH PRESENTATION
Our brochures are an invaluable source of information for buyers,
but it's actually our sellers who benefit the most.
We create beautifully illustrated brochures for individual properties, including full-color photographs as well as descriptive text about each property's history, location, special features and amenities. Our distribution programs quickly introduce each brochure to a targeted group of clients and brokers. Brochures may also be distributed to all of our offices across the country and to Sotheby's auction headquarters in New York, providing our listings with exposure to a broad base of qualified clients.
LOCAL, CUSTOM-TAILORED ADVERTISING
An individual plan will be custom-tailored to market your home and will include a combination of key elements. Our reach is local, national and international and it is a proven approach that our cumulative marketing and advertising efforts will generate results for you regardless of a specific advertisement. To that point, we will employ the following local publications: Santa Barbara News-Press, Santa Barbara Magazine, and more.
SOTHEBYSHOMES.COM AND THE INTERNET
as the web reaches more buyers, our website reaches more of the web.
In the past decade, online real estate searches have increased dramatically, rising to nearly 92% of all home buyers. A National Association of Realtors® survey of recent home buyers asked where they learned about the properties they ultimately purchased. The survey demonstrated that the internet is delivering over ten times the value of traditional advertising. As an internationally recognized off-line brand, Sotheby’s International Realty® enjoys a major advantage in the essential online marketplace. We leverage that advantage through marketing and distribution arrangements with several key websites. This allows us to target a broad and qualified audience of purchasers more effectively than ever before.
