May 26, 2011 // Franchising.com // PARSIPPANY, N.J., -- Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC today announced Kamali Sotheby's International Realty is the newest member of its luxury real estate network.
The firm, owned by Farzahn Kamali, serves Oregon's Cannon Beach, Arch Cape, Manzanita and Gearhart markets.
"We're excited to add this extraordinary firm to the Sotheby's International Realty network," said Philip White, president and chief operating officer, Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC. "Located in a premier coastal destination of the Pacific Northwest, the area draws a large client base from Seattle and Portland and has buyers from all over the world."
"Living on the edge of the Pacific with surrounding forests, the stage is set for buyers to find their dream home," said Kamali of the area's pristine coastlines and peaceful atmosphere. "People buy in this slice of paradise to immerse themselves in a world unlike any other, and to us, the Sotheby's International Realty brand is unlike any other. Becoming part of this elite network, we are even better positioned to strengthen our unique marketing campaigns and to maximize the benefits to our clientele."
The Sotheby's International Realty® network currently has more than 11,900 sales associates located in approximately 560 offices in 42 countries and territories worldwide. Kamali Sotheby's International Realty listings will be marketed on the sothebysrealty.com global website. In addition to the referral opportunities and widened exposure generated from this source, the firm's brokers and clients will benefit from an association with the Sotheby's auction house and worldwide Sotheby's International Realty marketing programs.
Founded in 1976 to provide independent brokerages with a powerful marketing and referral program for luxury listings, the Sotheby's International Realty network was designed to connect the finest independent real estate companies to the most prestigious clientele in the world. In February 2004, Realogy Corporation, a global provider of real estate and relocation services, entered into a long-term strategic alliance with Sotheby's, the operator of the auction house. The agreement provided for the licensing of the Sotheby's International Realty name and the development of a full franchise system by Realogy's subsidiary, Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC. Affiliations in the system are granted only to brokerages and individuals meeting strict qualifications. Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC supports its affiliates with a host of operational, marketing, recruiting, educational and business development resources. Franchise affiliates also benefit from an association with the venerable Sotheby's auction house, established in 1744. For more information, visit www.sothebysrealty.com.
