Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC recently announced that HÔM Real Estate Group, headquartered in Newport Beach, Calif., has joined its luxury real estate network.
The firm now will operate its three offices in Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and Balboa Island as HÔM Sotheby’s International Realty with Mike Shapiro as chairman and Bob Bonanno as president. Also, the offices formerly operated by Coast Sotheby’s International Realty in Rancho Santa Fe and Laguna Beach will be operated by HÔM Sotheby’s International Realty in the near future.
According to Shapiro, the affiliation offers his company the opportunity to reach a broader consumer base. “We have built a very strong name in our local market but to reach the next level we needed the backing of an international brand,” he says. “The Sotheby’s International Realty brand offers us the international reach we were looking for combined with a renowned name and referral opportunities through a worldwide network of experts.”
The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has more than 12,000 sales associates located in approximately 580 offices in 42 countries and territories worldwide. HÔM Sotheby’s International Realty listings will be marketed on the sothebysrealty.com global website.
