REFERRAL NETWORK


Since the creation of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand the network currently has more than 18,000 sales associates located in approximately 825 offices in 61 countries and territories worldwide. The Sotheby’s International Realty client profile is one of high net worth, usually with property ownership in multiple locations across the globe, this has created a unique opportunity for referral of business not only between Sotheby’s International Realty offices but also through the Sotheby’s Auction house. The Sotheby’s International Realty website www.sir.com was created with this in mind and enables the savvy purchaser of luxury property to search for real estate across the globe directly from its Homepage. As a tourist destination Cayman Islands Sotheby's International Realty has enjoyed numerous referrals from Sotheby's International Realty offices from around the world and particularly from North American countries like Canada with “Snow Birds” looking for warm climes from which to escape a cold winter back home. The countries from which the Cayman Islands is seeing most interest at the moment are as follows:
