Sotheby’s International Realty named top company

Sotheby’s International Realty, Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty’s parent company, was recently named the top real estate company in two of six categories of the 2016 Real Trends/The Wall Street Journal “Top Thousand” report, released in June.

Additionally, 45 of the top 250 sales associates in the REAL Trends Individual Sales Volume category were Sotheby’s International Realty associates, a higher number than any other real estate company. The brand also had the highest combined individual sales volume from sales associates in the same category and the most individuals represented in the Individual Average Sales Price category, holding 17 of 50 spots.

Company leaders said the recognition was a huge accomplishment.

The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has more than 19,000 affiliated independent sales associates located in approximately 845 offices in 63 countries and territories worldwide.

SSIR welcomes new broker

Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty welcomes Linda Cullen, who has been hired as broker associate and brings diverse professional experience to the firm, according to a news release.

“Linda is an immensely experienced professional asset for us,” said Jill Limberg, managing broker at SSIR. “Her business skills have been vital to her past successes, and we look forward to utilizing her knowledge within the SSIR team.”

A Steamboat local since 1975, Cullen began her career in retail. Working for Sport Stalker she helped facilitate that company’s growth from two ski shops to 35 stores. She has also owned and operated four retail stores herself.

“I have been in retail for over 40 years in sales, management, buying and merchandising,” Cullen said. “I am very good at defining and uncovering trends in retail and have had many successes. I am confident that I will bring the same experience and ability to determine not only real estate market trends, but the perfect Steamboat property to match a client’s needs.”
