• Sotheby's, the world's oldest art auction house, was founded in London in 1744. It was originally founded by Samuel Baker to sell books and in its early years offered some of the largest libraries of the world's most prominent figures, such as Napoleon Bonaparte.

    With its international reputation, the brand decided to respond to a growing demand from its high-end clientele: luxury real estate. In 1976, two centuries after its creation, the auction house founded Sotheby's International Realty, a specialist in the sale and purchase of real estate, representing exceptional properties throughout the world on behalf of its clients.

    Rigour, transparency and discretion are an integral part of the Sotheby's ethic and are the three values required for the recruitment and management of teams. Sotheby's International Realty Marseille offers comprehensive real estate services to buyers and sellers worldwide. Our team has the contacts and experience to facilitate international real estate transactions in Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Lille and over 70 other French offices.
