Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC today announced its expansion in Europe with the opening of Slovakia Sotheby’s International Realty.
The SIR flagship office in Slovakia is located in the capital city of Bratislava. It will serve the luxury residential real estate markets throughout the surrounding metropolitan area and into the High Tatras Mountain region.
“Slovakia is an attractive location for global investors and corporations with its proximity to other important European business hubs, such as Vienna,” said Philip White, President and Chief Executive Officer Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. Ilona Manickova, who will oversee this expansion, also continues at the helm of Sotheyby’s International Realty in both the Czech Republic and Croatia. Her team of realtors have a well-established presence in the region.
“We are focused on meeting our client’s lifestyle requirements in order to help them find their dream home whilst experiencing tailor-made professional service of the world-renowned Sotheby’s International Realty® brand,” said Mancikova. Bratislava is located on the banks of the River Danube, bordering Austria and Hungary, and offers a range of home styles including new, luxury residential developments and unique villas. “Thanks to our global network, we can offer local clients and investors real estate from around the world, from luxury mountain chalets in Austria to summer homes in Florida, with a warranty of premium service,” added Mancikova.
Slovakia Sotheby’s International Realty looks forward to collaborating with local brands, designers and architects. Local artists will have their artwork displayed in the new Bratislava office. The opening of this Slovakia office in 2018 is symbolic as it shares the occasion of the one hundred year anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia. The Czechoslovak Republic was established following the conclusion of World War I. This expansion of SIR’s global network celebrates and commemorates the depth of the Czech-Slovak connection.
The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has more than 22,000 affiliated independent sales associates located in over 970 offices in 72 countries and territories worldwide. In 2017, the brand achieved a record global sales volume of $108 billion USD. Slovakia Sotheby’s International Realty listings will be marketed on the sothebysrealty.com 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.
