Qatar Sotheby’s International Realty has just opened, marking the exciting expansion of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC in the Middle East. The branch is the second Sotheby’s International Realty-branded company in the area, joining Gulf Sotheby’s International Realty in Dubai. The new offices are based in Doha and, as well as covering the demand for luxury real estate in the areas of Lusail, West Bay Lagoon and The Pearl island, will also serve Qatari clients interested in international property investment.

Owned by the Alfardan Group, Seran Gheorghe heads the Qatar Sotheby’s International Realty in the role of General Manager. Mr Gheorghe is an experienced associate from Gulf Sotheby’s International Realty who has worked closely with Qatari contacts in order to establish the new venture. Speaking about the new opening, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sotheby’s International Realty, Mr Philip White commented, “Qatar’s high-income economy and global real estate interest is appealing to the Sotheby’s International Realty brand.” He added that, “Seran and his team have a strong understanding of local and global luxury real estate and we are proud to have them as our affiliate in Qatar.”

Mr Savvas Savvaidis, CEO of Greece Sotheby’s International Reality stated, “The new opening in Qatar is great news for the global market, but also for us here in Greece, which has already seen investment from Qatari buyers, including the royal family itself. As the world property market becomes more connected under the Sotheby’s International Realty Brand®, even further possibilities open up for both buyer and seller to enjoy greater reach and exposure.”

The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has more than 22,700 affiliated independent sales associates located in nearly 1,000 offices in 72 countries and territories worldwide. In 2018, the brand achieved a record global sales volume of $112 billion USD.
