Sotheby's Auction House and Kurfiss Sotheby's International Realty

Sotheby’s Auction House

An audience that values the unique.

A Heritage to Celebrate

Since it was founded in 1744, Sotheby’s has been a name synonymous with fine art, antiques, rare objects and more recently, one-of-a-kind diamonds and stellar wines. We offer direct access to this esteemed institution, its staff of experts and its very discerning audience, individuals who value their homes as much as the special collections that fill them.

Unmatched Access

Sotheby’s International Realty and Sotheby’s auction house have a unique relationship that enables our agents to market their listings to auction-house clients around the world. Whether it is displaying property brochures at the auction-house real-estate desk in New York, submitting them for promotion on or advertising them in newsletters emailed weekly to auction-house clients, Kurfiss SIR is the only Philadelphia-area real-estate company with access to this group of high-net-worth individuals. We have access to ultra-high-net-worth auction-house clients via Sotheby’s Preferred magazine. Art & Home magazine is produced jointly by Sotheby’s auction house and Sotheby’s International Realty and has a wide circulation among clients of both businesses.

In addition, we are able to connect collectors in our market area with the auction-house specialists – some of the most highly trained experts in their specialties — who can then advise the collector on specific items.
