Sotheby's International Realty News: Luxury Brand Expands Presence in Switzerland

800px-St_Moritz_MuottasThe white glove services offered by the Sothebys brand continues to make its presence known globally as Sothebys International Realty Affiliates LLC has announced the opening of St. Moritz Sothebys International Realty in Switzerland. The services will be available throughout the canton of Grison widening exposure and expanding referral opportunities.

This new firm will be owned and operated by Gianluca Righetti who currently owns Fontana Sothebys International Realty which dominates the Tessin, Lugano, Locarno, and Ascona markets. Righetti is overwhelmed with the opportunities presented to him in St. Moritz which he believes is a world-renowned mountain resort. Since the early 1950s St. Moritz has been an important destination for many personalities from the world of entertainment, sports and politics, he said. It is the perfect location for owners of chalets and apartments coming from all over the world to benefit from 300 days of sunshine, long summers and sporty winters. The St. Moritz luxury real estate market is one of the highest priced in the world, with the percentage of secondary residences very high and no existing major international real estate agency in the marketplace. Therefore, we believe this presents a great opportunity that will give us a strong position in the market.

Philip White, president and chief executive officer of Sothebys International Realty Affiliates LCC stated, The Sothebys International Realty brands expansion across Switzerland continues our commitment to providing access to the brands network and exclusive real estate services in key countries around the world. This affiliation, which strengthens our presence in Europe, offers entrance into this famous and attractive lifestyle-focused Swiss market. We are very pleased that our global clientele now will have access to the brands services in this beautiful part of the world. St. Moritz is one of only three locations to host the Winter Olympics twice, in 1928 and 1948, and remains a destination for world ski championships.

The Sothebys International Realty network continues to grow and prosper as we are now present in 56 countries and territories worldwide with roughly 730 offices. Having over 16,400 devoted and independent sales associates, we pride our success on each being readily willing and able to provide outstanding services to all clients. We at Gibson Sothebys International Realty would like to congratulate Gianluca Righetti on this great endeavor and look forward to collaborating with him and his team in the near future.
