SothebysRealty.com is the main listing portal for our brand. This website in turn syndicates to a network of sites including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and James List. These sites attract tremendous interest from qualified buyers around the globe. Additionally, we have a proprietary relationship with the New York Times, Architectural Digest and Wall Street Journal and banner advertising throughout their websites. Our competitors simply do not have this exclusive access.
Once a month our clients will receive a report indicating how many times their property has been viewed over the past 30 days on each website in the Sotheby’s International Realty® program on which it appears. The report also includes such data as the top 10 cities where views are coming from.
