Founded in 1976 to provide independent brokerages with a powerful marketing and referral program for luxury listings, the Sotheby’s International Realty network was designed to connect the finest independent real estate companies to the most prestigious clientele in the world.
In their mission to achieve its goal, the company has been been signing exclusive master franchise agreements around the globe, among them last year's contract with Australia's Michael Pallier, which is to develop the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand in Australia’s New South Wales market.
Now the company has announced that Legacy Properties West in Durango, Colo., is the newest member of its luxury real estate network and will operate as Legacy Properties West Sotheby's International Realty.
Tom Morse is broker and owner, and the firm’s office is located at 743 Main Avenue in Durango.
“Legacy Properties West was formed with the commitment to nurture and preserve the legacy and heritage of the West,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “We proudly welcome them to the Sotheby’s International Realty network and look forward to bringing our services to this important luxury real estate market.”
The firm joins the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand’s 27 offices located throughout Colorado to enhance its presence in the state. The brand has more than 13,000 sales associates located in approximately 660 offices in 49 countries and territories worldwide.
According to Morse, his team is committed to helping their clients find their ideal home. “Whether the dream is to own a legacy ranch, have a home on a world-class trout stream or live in a luxury mountain golf community, we are here to help make it a reality,” he said. “Durango is known as a recreational paradise that offers an exceptional quality of life, with a myriad of cultural events. With the Sotheby’s International Realty brand’s global reach we can introduce our market to a broader audience of consumers.”
Legacy Properties West 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. Each office is independently owned and operated.
