Partner with Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty

When it’s time to make a change, below are the top 12 reasons you should consider partnering with Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty to take your real estate business to the next level.


Seamless Onboarding Experience

We know change can be uncertain and the timing may never seem right, but we want to assure you that we’ve thought of every detail to make onboarding with us an exciting, stress-free process. A dedicated staff liaison serves as the connection between your business and ours as you work to transition your listings and your sellers, monitoring your progress so you can do what you do best: Help customers buy and sell real estate. Consider it “business as usual,” while benefiting from the best of Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty from day one.

Our Culture of Collaboration

There is no better testament to the strength of our culture of collaboration than the volume of Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty listings sold in-house. Listings sold without ever leaving our brokerage account for more than one-third of our sales volume. We are not in competition with one another; rather, we are able to advance together toward common goals.

A True Partnership

When you affiliate with Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty, you become an investment. Ongoing training opportunities from members of our leadership team help keep you current on the latest marketing tools and trends as well as movements in the market and the real estate industry as a whole. Our COO, Wes Madden, a nationally-recognized speaker who spent nearly a decade of his career leading a real estate sales team ranked Top 50 in the nation, is now focused exclusively on coaching and mentoring you to be the best you can be.

Actionable Business Plans

Because we partner with you in business, we work with you to produce actionable business plans and sales goals — and then help you achieve them. Our lead capture website and multi-voice response system create perfectly-timed conversations with your clients, using already proven marketing strategies. Proprietary tools like our Blueprint Tracker report on key performance indicators like your sales goal pacing and marketing return-on-investment in real time, while company-level digital campaigns reduce your marketing expenses and deliver lead flow superior to costly sources like Zillow.

Elite Agents

We don’t want to be the biggest real estate company – just the best – which is why we’re so discerning about who we partner with. That said, who better to trust than our own agents when it comes to recognizing peers who fit our ideal agent profile and could benefit from our tools and resources? Helping agents – like you – who have already achieved success take their business to the next level is what we’re all about.

Our Support Staff

Our in-house support staff enhance your — and your client’s — experience throughout the real estate journey. A 5-to-1 ratio of agents to staff, our skilled employees and virtual assistants are here to make your life easier. From world-class marketing initiatives to global communication management, we deliver luxury service at all price points. Many agents who make the move to Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty find they don’t need to hire their own assistant; and, those with existing assistants find they are freed up to focus on more sales-related tasks and fewer administrative and marketing projects.

One-Click Marketing Plans

From direct mail to digital to proprietary publications, our dedicated marketing department helps you effortlessly leverage your listings with minimal expense. Niche, our semi-annual magazine, is mailed to targeted recipients and distributed locally. We provide our agents with quarterly market reports, local area guides, global media guides and listing and buyer presentations, each of which can be customized to you and professionally presented. A complete marketing plan for your properties is never more than one mouse click away.

Effortless Email Marketing

Our dedicated marketing department invests countless hours developing content unique to Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty, published to your customized lead capture website and linked to from carefully curated monthly email newsletters. Along with quarterly market report emails, personalized email marketing pieces can be delivered to your contacts across platforms automatically on your behalf – without you ever having to lift a finger.

Leading Media Partnerships

Facebook, Inman and Architectural Digest, along with other leading media voices in the world, actively seek to partner with the Sotheby’s International Realty brand. Opportunities to present our most exemplary listings on the world stage deliver unparalleled exposure for properties right here on the Emerald Coast. This local-to-global media mix puts our agents in front of targeted readers of esteemed publications like The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

Industry-Leading Online Presence

Our industry-leading online presence and sophisticated reporting tools combine to deliver measurable results for you and your sellers. While many of our competitors rely solely on the MLS, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand sets the standard for reaching the world’s most authoritative news, lifestyle and financial voices as well as real estate-centric websites with information, high-resolution photography, property videos, and, when available, 3D and Virtual Reality tours. SothebysRealty.com averages more than three million monthly visits — more than half from outside the United States — 40% more than our closest competitor.

Our Global Connections

The Sotheby’s International Realty brand maintains a presence in the world’s most desirable markets with more than 1,000 offices that represent luxury properties across the globe. These markets act as catalysts in generating sales traffic for one another. Our referral network augments the deep personal networks of our 23,000-plus sales associates, enabling you to act as a true global real estate advisor for your customers, with the connections to help them buy and sell with the same level of service virtually anywhere in the world.
