Founded in 1976

In the heart of London on New Bond Street in 1744, an auction house was born with a revered tradition of marketing the world's most cherished possessions. As the oldest company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (BID), Sotheby's has a global network of 80 offices in 40 countries. Today, Sotheby's presents auctions in ten different salesrooms including New York, London, Hong Kong and Paris. Sotheby's offers collectors the resources of Sotheby's Financial Services, the world's only full service art financing company as well as private sale opportunities in more than 70 categories, including S|2, the gallery arm of Sotheby's Contemporary Art Department, and two retail businesses, Sotheby's Diamonds and Sotheby's Wine.

In 1976, an exceptional real estate company was launched and created from the same passion that guides the Sotheby's Auction House. With the vision of becoming a commanding presence in the representation of the world's most unique properties, it is the Sotheby's International Realty® brand that strives to represent all those who consider themselves the "Connoisseurs of Life," and to represent the distinctive properties they so desire.
