RISMEDIA, Dec. 12, 2008-Signature Sotheby’s International Realty announced it has expanded its luxury real estate operation with the opening of a second office in Sarasota.
Premier Properties, Sarasota, which is located in the Plaza at Five Points in downtown Sarasota, now will operate as Signature Sotheby’s International Realty, serving the Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte county markets. Premier currently has 34 agents and more than 175 listings.
Signature Sotheby’s International Realty opened in November 2008 when it was named as the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand’s affiliate in Sarasota and is owned by Judy Green, Donna Moore and Richard Taylor, with Green serving as managing partner. The firm’s headquarters are at 783 South Orange Avenue, Sarasota, where approximately 38 agents serve the greater Sarasota market area. The acquisition of Premier Properties brings the total number of agents at Signature Sotheby’s International Realty to 72.
“Independently, our companies share many of the same ideals. By joining forces, we now have the opportunity to build on this foundation and write a new chapter in Sarasota’s real estate history. The path ahead will certainly be an extraordinary journey toward combining our prestigious organizations to create one powerful presence in the Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte county markets,” said Green. “No one has more connections, more services, more experience or more opportunities for the luxury home market.”
The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has more than 10,500 sales associates located in more than 500 offices in 38 countries and territories worldwide. Signature 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.
