Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC recently announced its luxury real estate services now are available in Barcelona, Spain with the opening of Barcelona Sotheby’s International Realty.
According to the company, the office is jointly owned by Markus Thoene and Christoph Toelle, who also operate Costa Brava Sotheby’s International Realty, which serves the high-end real estate market in the coastal region of Girona. The Sotheby’s International Realty® network already has firms in Madrid, Gibraltar, Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca and the Balearic Islands of Mallorca and Ibiza.
“Our expansion across Spain continues our commitment to providing access to the Sotheby’s International Realty network’s exclusive real estate services in key countries around the world,” said Michael R. Good, chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “This affiliation, which strengthens our presence in Spain, offers us entrance into the exciting Barcelona market. We are very pleased that our global clientele will have access to our services in this historic and beautiful city.”
Thoene and Toelle are confident the Sotheby’s International Realty brand will attract many qualified, international buyers into Barcelona, a city globally famous for its outstanding architecture, art, cultural highlights and Mediterranean lifestyle. “After several years of economic downturn, Spain this year will face nationwide restructuring processes before the economy is expected to improve in 2013,” said Thoene. “This situation offers a unique opportunity for international buyers to purchase luxury real estate in top locations in Barcelona, which in other market conditions either would not be on sale or would be significantly more expensive. Our professional team of experienced, international real estate consultants looks forward to helping our global clients buy extraordinary properties in Barcelona city and its coasts.”
