Sotheby's (US) International Realty Brand Expands Presence in Curaçao

20 Feb 2018 - Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC today announced its expanding presence on the island of Curaçao with the opening of Curaçao Sotheby's International Realty.

Curaçao Sotheby's International Realty is led by Owner Raymond Seijs and will serve the luxury residential real estate markets across the island including Blue Bay Resort, Coral Estate Resort, Jan Thiel Beach, and Santa Barbara Plantation.

"Curaçao has a fast-growing real estate market; the tranquil island life it offers residents makes it an attractive destination to buyers from around the world," said Philip White, president and chief executive officer of Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC. "We are proud to welcome Curaçao Sotheby's International Realty to our global network."

"Our mission at Curaçao Sotheby's International Realty is to find the best real estate match for our clients," said Seijs. "Affiliating with the Sotheby's International Realty® brand allows us to showcase all that Curaçao has to offer to a global audience."

This is the third office for the Sotheby's International Realty brand in the ABC Islands; also operating in this region of the Caribbean are Aruba Sotheby's International Realty, which previously served the luxury real estate market of Curaçao, and Bonaire Sotheby's International Realty.

The Sotheby's International Realty network currently has more than 21,000 affiliated independent sales associates located in 930 offices in 69 countries and territories worldwide. In 2016, the brand achieved a record global sales volume of $95 billion USD. Curaçao Sotheby's International Realty listings will be marketed on the global website. In addition to the referral opportunities and widened exposure generated from this source, the firm's brokers and clients will benefit from an association with the Sotheby's auction house and worldwide Sotheby's International Realty marketing programs. Each office is independently owned and operated.
