Cascade Sotheby’s Ranks as one of Nation’s Top-Producing Brokerage Firms in RISMedia’s 2018 Power Broker Report
Bend, OR—Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty has ranked as one of the top real estate firms in the U.S. in sales volume according to RISMedia’s 30th Annual Power Broker Report. Cascade Sotheby’s, which has expanded throughout the Oregon and SW Washington real estate market, reported $1.3 billion in total transaction volume in 2017, representing $32 million in company revenue and a 325% increase in sales growth in the last two years.
According to the recent announcement by RISMedia, the biggest brokerages have a mutual philosophy: expansion. And Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty is no exception.
Cascade Sotheby’s recently acquired the expert talent of high-producing brokerages including Metolius Property Sales in Sisters and The Donna Roberts Group in Vancouver. The firm also signed as the exclusive listing agent for all Franklin Brothers homes and developments in Bend as well as the new luxury home development, Grand Peaks at Sisters. Cascade Sotheby’s also recently recruited a $22 million-a-year broker in Southern Oregon to leverage the emerging vineyard real estate activity there.
The firm’s 10 strategic locations include two offices in Bend, and retail presence in Sisters, Lake Oswego, The Pearl District/Portland, Lake Oswego, SW Washington, and at the Oregon Coast in Gearhart, Cannon Beach, and Manzanita. Together they form the most expansive luxury real estate network in the Pacific Northwest.
Cascade Sotheby’s is one of the elite 25 Sotheby’s International Realty® franchises in the U.S. in the billion-dollar volume category and is one of the top franchises in closed sales revenue in the entire Sotheby’s International Realty global realty network.
