Thank you for your trust.
It was especially important in 2022 — a year of shifts and changes. You needed someone who had navigated tough markets before. Someone who had succeeded no matter the circumstances.
You put your trust in our experience, stability and expertise.
Last year’s results for the Sotheby’s International Realty network were just announced — it takes time in our business for all the year-end sales to finalize — and they show that your instincts were absolutely right.
Our agents, with their 26,000 colleagues around the world, sold an amazing $167 billion in amazing properties.
That’s not all. The network expanded its global footprint, opening new offices in existing locales and forming the largest real estate company by sales volume in Oregon with the partnership of Cascade Hasson Sotheby’s International Realty. And, first-ever offices were opened in Egypt, Kazakhstan and Serbia, making our network 1,075 offices in 81 countries and territories.
We are, once again, the No. 1 most profiled luxury real estate brand in the news, with more than 60,000 press placements. Sotheby’s International Realty has more than one million social media followers now — and a jaw-dropping 48 million visits to sothebysrealty.com in 2022 alone. A whopping 75 million of our videos were played.
As our now-famous slogan says: Nothing compares.
All of these numbers prove the power of our network. But, trust, of course, is all about comfort, not statistics. Twenty-twenty and 2021 were unprecedented markets — hotter than ever imagined — and now we are experiencing yet another industry shift. The continuing low number of available homes means you need an expert agent more than ever. One thing we know for sure: Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty agents are successful in both up and down markets. You can trust them, always.
You know, trust is really about feeling at home.
Which is exactly how we want you to feel all the way to your new one.
