Liu Gang will serve as chairman of Beijing Sotheby's International Realty, Kevin Corbett will serve as chief executive officer, and Jim Hao as general manager.  Beijing Sotheby's International Realty is scheduled to open in the first quarter of this year.

"Doing business in China is a key milestone for our brand," said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC.  "In September 2012, Sotheby's became the first international auction house licensed to conduct auctions in China through its joint venture Sotheby's ( Beijing) Auction Co., Ltd. Concurrent development in China has been a priority for the Sotheby's International Realty brand for the last several years.  We strongly believe that under the leadership of Mr. Gang and Mr. Corbett, the Sotheby's International Realty brand will have a strong foothold in Beijing, China's capital."

"Our team has extensive experience with high-end consumer goods, and together with the Sotheby's International Realty brand's global reach, we can combine our local knowledge to create a trusted resource for those seeking to invest in Beijing's real estate," said Gang.  "We look forward to further growth and expansion in the key luxury markets of mainland China."

With the opening of Beijing Sotheby's International Realty, the Sotheby's International Realty ® brand will have 27 offices throughout Asia in Australia, Beijing, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

The Sotheby's International Realty network currently has nearly 14,000 sales associates located in approximately 680 offices in 49 countries and territories worldwide.  Sotheby's International Realty listings are marketed on the sothebysrealty.com global website.  In addition to the referral opportunities and widened exposure generated from this source, the network's brokers and clients benefit from an association with the Sotheby's auction house and worldwide Sotheby's International Realty marketing programs.  Each office is independently owned and operated.
