The Network

We are the largest, most interconnected global luxury network of the top real estate talent in each of the markets we operate in. We go to great lengths to build meaningful global relationships with other SIR affiliates resulting in thousands of referrals back and forth each year.  Our clients can expect the same standards with every affiliate office around the globe. On each of our listings, we have the unique advantage of pinpointing where web traffic originates from and gain additional listing exposure by collaborating with any global SIR office to promote that property to their network.

Our International Reach

The touting of being 'international’ has caught on in our marketplace. Many of the people we compete with are regional companies whose name resonates only within their local trading area. Some companies have global name recognition, but are they known as luxury brands? Some advertise themselves as luxury specialists or having an international footprint and reach, yet few have significant benefits to offer their clients. International is not just our middle name.  We continue to expand our reach as the largest, most interconnected true international luxury network.
