Some important things to consider:
1) Most ranch/land buyers have existing relationships with their residential Realtors. Therefore, more buyers find a ranch property through a residential brokerage like Sotheby’s.
2) With a residential real estate brokerage, you increase your exposure to those residential buyers as well as the Sotheby’s International Realty brand with 23,000 agents in over 1000 officers nationally and internationally.
3) Capitalizing on Sotheby’s exclusive relationship with global media powerhouse, and Ren’s extensive network of regional ranch brokers, there is no agent and no other real estate brand that provides the professional service, local expertise and property exposure than Ren Martyn and Sotheby’s International Realty.
