ONE Sotheby’s International Realty succeeds in selling the most exquisite luxury homes on the market quarter after quarter- the third quarter of 2014 was no different.

Here’s a detailed look at the top five sales for the third quarter of this year.
The Sotheby’s brand is passionate about connecting with new clients and qualified buyers. A new video from Auction House experts illustrates the simplicity of participating in a Sotheby’s auction, connecting audiences with important information digitally. The “how-to” applies universally across sales which occur in over 50 different categories. Refer to the video to prepare for the slew of Auctions scheduled throughout November, starting Nov 4th in NYC.
Particularly when it comes to art, an auction is the simplest and most trusted way to buy. Interested parties will navigate to Sothebys.com to browse the complete catalogue of art for sale or can download the Sotheby’s Catalogue iPad app from the iTunes stores. Galleries are installed the week before the sale to allow for visitors, all exhibitions are free and open to the public.
Once you have found your item of choice, it’s important to register to bid at least 24 hours before the auction at sothebys.com. Bidding in the sale room is as easy as raising a paddle. If you’re not able to attend, a Sotheby’s telephone bidder will relay bids on your behalf. You decide when to stop bidding! The thrill of acquiring a painting starts at auction but the pleasure of owning it lasts a lifetime. Please reach out if you have questions about this process or would like to learn more about the Sotheby’s network!
