When The Tennessean named The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty the only truly international real estate company in Middle Tennessee, we had not seen a complete report of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand’s growth in 2012. But Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC announced yesterday that it grew the office count within the global network by more than 9 percent in 2012, ending the year with approximately 660 Sotheby’s International Realty offices and 12,800 sales associates located in 47 countries and territories worldwide. The Sotheby’s International Realty® network also reported a 30 percent year-over-year increase in U.S. transaction sides closed by its affiliated brokers and agents in 2012.
“Last year was significant for the Sotheby’s International Realty brand as we saw 15 new companies join our luxury network from all over the world,” said Philip White, who was named the brand’s president and chief executive officer in 2012. “We also saw impressive organic growth among our existing affiliates. Overall, we expanded our market presence in key locations from Princeton, N.J., to Aspen, Colo., London and Australia. Our network has what we believe is one of the highest average sales prices of any national real estate system in the United States.”
The Sotheby’s International Realty brand added five new residential real estate brokerage firms to its network across the United States in the following markets: Fort Worth, Texas; Tarrytown, N.Y.; Brooklyn, N.Y.; Leesburg, Va.; and Wellington, Fla. Outside of the United States the brand expanded its network to provide its real estate services in: Milan, Italy; Taipei, Taiwan; Barcelona, Spain; San Miguel, Mexico; Tel Aviv, Israel; Ibiza, Spain; Sydney, Australia; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Vilnius, Lithuania; and Da Nang, Vietnam.
