Since the founding of the Sotheby’s® Auction House in 1744, the Sotheby’s® name is renown as a marketer of the world’s most valuable and prestigious possessions. This reputation is built as much upon exceptional service to clients as on the notable art, antiques, jewelry and other holdings that pass through Sotheby’s offices around the world.

Our association with Sotheby’s® Brand is truly what sets us apart. More than an auction house, Sotheby’s® is the ultimate destination where collectors gather to indulge their desires and share their knowledge. Founded on the same commitment to exceptional service, the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand is born and in 2007 added Tomlinson to its exclusive list of luxury agencies. We take great pride in using our expertise, resources, and global connections to perfectly unite extraordinary places with the extraordinary buyers who will cherish them as we do.
