Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC today announced that it has signed an agreement with List Holdings Singapore PTE. LTD. to develop the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand in Singapore.
List Holdings Singapore PTE. LTD. is owned by the same company that operates List Sotheby’s International Realty in Japan and Honolulu, Hawaii. The firm’s Singapore location will be led by Hisashi Kitami, owner and chief executive officer of List Sotheby’s International Realty.
“Singapore is a global financial center making it an attractive market for international buyers,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “Hisashi Kitami and his team share our brand’s core values and commitment to providing the highest levels of service.”
List Sotheby’s International Realty is expected to open its first office in Singapore during the second half of 2016.
“As part of the Sotheby’s International Realty network, we have seen great success in Hawaii and Japan and are excited to expand into Singapore,” said Kitami. “The country has an international consumer base and the global exposure offered by the brand will continue to be beneficial to our clients.”
The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has more than 18,800 affiliated independent sales associates located in approximately 835 offices in 63 countries and territories worldwide. List 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. Each office is independently owned and operated.
