Sotheby’s International Realty Brand Announces Exclusive Alliance with Nikkei

Sotheby’s International Realty Brand has announced an exclusive partnership with the Nikkei (Japan Economics Newspaper), world’s largest financial newspaper through the end of 2017.  The alliance enables the luxury residential real estate brand to generate Japanese buyer interest through the Nikkei‘s digital platform which reaches over 29 million monthly readers. 

“The Nikkei is the most widely circulated daily business publication in the world and reaches an audience of highly-educated affluent Japanese consumers. A presence on the Nikkei furthers our strategy to showcase the most exciting properties in the world to an audience of highly-qualified real estate intenders. As the first real estate brand to promote properties outside of Japan through the Nikkei, we quickly realized what an amazing opportunity we had to support our substantial expansion in the Asia Pacific region.”

-Kevin Thompson, chief marketing officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC
