Auction House Heritage
Sotheby’s was founded in London on March 11, 1744, when Samuel Baker auctioned several hundred scarce and valuable books for a few hundred pounds. Today the auction house has expanded to offer the best in over 70 categories including Fine and Decorative Arts, Jewelry and Wine. Sotheby’s maintains 90 locations in 40 countries and conducts 250 auctions each year. It was out of this rich heritage that an international real estate brand was founded in 1976. Today, the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand offers the same commitment to exceptional service that has characterized Sotheby’s for more than two centuries.
