Another month and yet another great moment where we can proudly announce that our Sothebys brand has expanded to yet another corner of the world, this time in Belgium. The opening of Brussels Sothebys International Realty has been opened by David Chicard, who is committed to serving the luxury residential real estate market throughout Brussels as well as Wallonia.
Chicard came forward to share his goal for delivering an efficient and personalized service to his global clientele, all while holding a high standard for confidentiality and professionalism, As the headquarters of many European institutions, Brussels is often considered something of a capital for the European Union. Being at the crossroads of cultures and playing an important role in Europe, Brussels fits the definition of the archetypal melting pot, but still retains its own unique character. Brussels has a population of about 1.2 million, and its metropolitan area is just over 2 million. Our focus is on providing comprehensive service at every stage of the process. The quality of our service is based on detailed knowledge of the market and its dynamic, precise and proven procedures, and a motivated, responsible and skilled team. Now with the support of the Sothebys International Realty brand we can bring Brussels extraordinary property to the far-reaching corners of the world.
As an emerging market in a place with so much charm, energy, history, and culture, Belgium seemed like an obvious choice for the Sothebys brand. Philip White, the President and Chief Executive Officer at Sothebys International Realty Affiliates LLC, noted about how important this move was, Expansion across Europe continues our commitment to providing access to the Sothebys International Realty networks exclusive real estate services in key cities around the world. This affiliation, which strengthens the brands presence in Europe, offers entrance into this famous and strategically important Belgian capital city. We are very pleased that a global clientele will now have access to the brand in this historic and beautiful part of the world.
We at Gibson Sothebys International Realty would like to congratulate Mr. Chicard and his team, and of course the Sothebys brand for this momentous occasion. As the months go on, our network continues to grow, and the lengths to which we can see our influence from our white-glove service spread is becoming increasingly broader and more impressive. Now, the Sothebys International Realty affiliation sees us represented in over 49 countries and territories worldwide, and within them there are over 14,000 sales associates and approximately 680 offices proudly carrying the Sothebys name.
