About Today Sotheby’s International Realty

Today Sotheby’s International Realty began as a one office firm in San Carlos in April, 1990 when Jeanne Garde and Jim Meader acquired the company. In 1993 the entire office was relocated to the fourth floor of the building where it operated for nine months. During this time, our ground floor office space was completely demolished and rebuilt into what you see today. During the remodeling, many of our advanced computer, phone and network sub-systems were put into place.

Today Sotheby’s International Realty is proud of its facilities and the dynamic associates who have chosen to practice real estate in our offices. Today Sotheby’s International Realty we are fully computerized with at least one computer on every agent’s desk. Associates have their own software, direct MLS and Internet access via a private high-speed connection and, in most cases, their own printer. This configuration works well given that the roster of in excess of 100 sales associates producing over 1200 transaction sides totaling some $860,000,000 dollar volume in 2003 giving Today the highest per person productivity in the San Mateo County Association of Realtors, both in terms of volume and sides sold. High associate volume production has always been a hallmark of our company and is the driving force behind facilities design, equipment selection and staff training.

The Today Sotheby’s International Realty staff is also well known for their ability to operate under challenging conditions. Today Sotheby’s International Realty routinely receives 13,500 to 16,300 faxes per month, our office voice mail system handles 45,000 to 50,000 messages per month, and our copiers produce in excess of 250,000 copies per month. All that activity regularly produces more closed transactions per month than our competitors. To say that Today Sotheby’s International Realty staff is able to make things happen on time is a mild understatement.

Today Sotheby’s International Realty is also known for its ability to provide support and turn technology into more agent production. While anyone can buy technology, making it work for the associate in a meaningful way remains a challenge for most companies. Today Sotheby’s International Realty’s strategy has always been one of individual agent empowerment. What that means is the associate, not the company, know best how to computerize themselves, what to use the computer for and at what pace all this happens. The office’s function is to have properly configured facilities, economical purchasing ability, training and follow up support for every associate no matter what their computer experience may be.

The ground-work has been completed, the associates in our company dominate their market, and continued growth is in our future. We at Today Sotheby’s International Realty are very proud of our traditions and take our leadership position very seriously. We continually rededicate, refine and direct our efforts to keeping Today Sotheby’s International Realty the best real estate company on the Peninsula.
