About us

Dreyfus Sotheby's International Realty is a local, full service, boutique real estate company specializing in sales and purchases of homes in the mid-Peninsula/Silicon Valley area. We have achieved exceptional sales results for our seller clients using a proprietary Premium Pricing Process fueled by deep local market knowledge.

At Dreyfus Sotheby's, our inspiration comes from a deep involvement and care for the communities we serve. We live and work here. We have intimate knowledge of neighborhoods, schools and organizations - and insider's knowledge of the homes that are available both publicly and privately and advantageous real-time information on local pricing. We see ourselves community caretakers, and we do all we can to help our friends and neighbors make living here a rich experience.

Dreyfus was selected by Sotheby's International Realty to manage their business in the finer Peninsula markets of the San Francisco Bay area and their important luxury real estate clientele. The global platform of Sotheby's International Realty, combined with Dreyfus' local expertise and understanding of the region, affords our clients the best of local and international representation and exposure. Within the Sotheby's International Realty network, over 150 independent luxury brokerages work together managing more than $100 billion (USD) in annual real estate sales - by far the most important and successful residential brokerage association in the world.

High Price for Your House, Low Stress for You

We create a customized sales strategy based on your goals and the special features of your home. We look at your house and lot, your neighborhood and even your street to create a profile of a target buyer. We then advise how to prepare and stage your house to appeal to that buyer and create a pricing and marketing plan that will get you a premium price.

Knowledge: We Know the Local Real Estate Market

Since its founding in 2000, Dreyfus Sotheby's International Realty has assembled only the best, most experienced, committed agents. We live and work here. We have kids in the schools. We volunteer and contribute financially to local philanthropies. We are always paying attention to what's going on in the neighborhoods and tracking statistics about local market conditions. We're connected to the fiber of our communities--giving us the insider knowledge it takes to get deals done in this competitive climate.

High Service: We Know the Problems, How to Solve them and We Do it All for You

We work hard to make the sales process easy for you. There can be a lot to do to get your house ready to sell, and getting it all done quickly and for a reasonable price can be a challenge. That's where we come in. Need help finding a handyman, or someone to help you organize and move 40 years of stuff? We'll not only give you referrals, we'll get estimates, schedule the work and make that it gets done.

We're All on One Team--Your Team

Unlike other big real estate companies that are made up of "free agents" who compete with each other for business, Dreyfus Sotheby's takes a collaborative, team approach. We hire only experienced professionals who have developed expertise in their own specialized markets. We encourage sharing of information, ideas and resources so that our whole is truly greater than the sum of our parts. When you sign with Dreyfus Sotheby's International Realty, you get not only the agent you hire, but also the entire force of our company behind you.

Integrity: You Can Trust Us

Without integrity, nothing else matters. We will be honest with you and always place your interests first. We won't tell you what you want to hear just to get your listing and we won't cut corners to make our job easier. When we host an open house, we're there to sell your house, and not the one down the street. When your house is sold, you will know that we did everything possible to get you the best deal, and you'll know that we didn't leave any money on the table.
