Serving the Greater Philadelphia Area

Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty serves buyers and sellers in the greater Philadelphia area, in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties, the Lehigh Valley and in select markets in New Jersey, including Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Hunterdon counties. Founded by David Kurfiss as Kurfiss Real Estate in New Hope, Pa., the company was purchased in 1991 by Donald Pearson, who continues in the chairman role today. Under his leadership, the company expanded from its flagship location in New Hope to offices in Rittenhouse Square and Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia and in Bryn Mawr on the Main Line. It is from these four business centers that our agents assist clients throughout the Philadelphia region.

International Marketing Platform

In 2006, recognizing global real estate trends and shifts in consumer marketing, Pearson decided to affiliate Kurfiss with Sotheby’s International Realty. This affiliation gives agents and clients direct access to world-class marketing tools suitable for all types of properties, special outreach to high-net-worth individuals, including Sotheby’s auction house, and a leading-edge technology stack.

After more than 25 years of assisting clients with every type of property, from our area’s classic stone farmhouses to exquisite, old-world estate homes, turnkey condominiums, charming starter homes and even commercial properties, cumulative sales surpassed $3.5 billion with more than 8,000 transactions completed by the company.

Accessible, Trusted Service

Our sales associates know and love the markets they serve, and they enjoy sharing their knowledge with clients. Many of our agents have strong repeat and referral business, evidence that their clients value them as advisers. The geography we cover enables us to offer homes for buyers in all price ranges.

The personal touch offered by Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty distinguishes us. We provide “white glove” service to all clients whether they are buying their first home or browsing exquisite luxury properties in the city or country. For sellers, we believe that every homeowner deserves to have his or her property looks its best in the marketplace, regardless of price point, knowing that for most sellers their home may be their most valuable asset.

Ongoing communication with our clients is an essential part of our service. Whether it is feedback on showings, an update on marketing or the critical period when an offer is being negotiated and moving toward closing, we will be there for you.
