Realogics joins the Sotheby’s network

Reprint from press release.

Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC today announced that Realogics Brokerage, LLC, in Seattle is the newest member of its luxury real estate network.

The firm, owned by Dean and Stacy Jones of Realogics, Inc., now will do business as Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty. Sam Cunningham will serve as the designated broker and co-owner. The firm will service the Greater Seattle area in western Washington.

“The executive team behind Realogics Brokerage has built a strong foundation in Seattle based on core market knowledge, marketing excellence and unparalleled client service over the past decade,” said Michael R. Good, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “Their success is derived from the exceptional properties they represent and the quality of their agents and staff.”

Currently located at 217 Pine Street, Suite 700, in Seattle, the brokerage will relocate to a new retail storefront it owns at 2715 First Avenue in downtown Seattle’s popular Belltown neighborhood. The firm has 17 licensed sales associates, which include top-producing agent teams managed by Moira E. Holley and James H. Stroupe, as co-founders of the company’s new Resale division. Resale services will be offered to buyers and sellers of condominiums, town homes and single-family residences throughout the region.

“Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty draws upon market research and consumer trends to accurately position its properties. By understanding our clients’ goals and carefully analyzing the fundamentals, our agents are experts at realizing their objectives with proven results in all market conditions,” said Dean Jones, “Our team has been recognized with more than 125 regional and national awards for sales and marketing excellence. Having affiliated with the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, we now have access to a global marketplace, providing our agents and our clients with every possible advantage available in the industry.”

Realogics, through a separate operating company, offers specialization in new construction project marketing for condominiums and town homes, condo conversions and strategic repositioning services for bank-owned real estate including bulk sales and foreclosure reintroduction in outlying areas. Adding a Resale division and gaining a world-wide marketing platform is timely, according to Sam Cunningham.

“As the new construction pipeline closes out we’ll see a sustained surge in resale activity,” said Sam Cunningham. “We monitor supply and demand closely and we’ll apply these insights for buyers and sellers at all price points and product types.”

While Jones cites a significant increase in demand for in-city residences from interstate and international buyers over recent years, he’s diversifying. “It’s a key buyer pool but it’s not the only one we’re focused on,” he said. “Like many peers in our industry, we’re evolving to meet the demands of a dynamic marketplace.”

  1. Sotheby’s International is a great brand in real estate. The prestige this brand can bring in combination with specialist local market knowledge should be a ticket to success.
