The firm will open an office in Sydney next month, and focus on luxury homes, apartments, and farm, ranch and land markets in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. Additional offices are planned in Sydney’s North Shore and the central business district between 2013 and 2015.

The Sotheby’s International Realty network claims more than 12,000 sales associates in 625 offices in 44 countries and territories worldwide. Realogy entered into an alliance with auction house operator Sotheby’s in 2004 to license the Sotheby’s International Realty name and develop a franchise system.
