The firm is owned by Patricia Neuwirth and serves New York’s Hudson Valley including the Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow, Ossining, Briarcliff Manor and Pleasantville markets. It joins the brand’s already robust presence in the market: Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, Renwick Sotheby’s International Realty, North Country Sotheby’s International Realty and McClellan Sotheby’s International Realty.
“Hudson Homes has an established record of quality service in its community, having been in business since 1998,” said Philip White, president and chief operating officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “Their award-winning team, under the leadership of Patricia Neuwirth, have decades of experience and market knowledge, combined with a strong commitment to their clients and customers.”
Hudson Homes Sotheby’s International Realty is located at 38 Main Street in Tarrytown. According to Neuwirth, the affiliation will enhance the service they are able to provide thanks to the brand’s global reach and marketing and operational support. “Home sellers and buyers turn to us for comprehensive New York real estate listings and our outstanding reputation in the community,” she said. “Now that have joined the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, we are part of a worldwide network of experts and we have access to its comprehensive support system.”
The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has nearly 12,000 sales associates located in approximately 580 offices in 42 countries and territories worldwide. Hudson Homes 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.
