In 1989 I founded MacArthur and Company. I wanted to create a boutique real estate company where clients came first. During our first year of operation we became known as the go-to firm for clients who wanted a real estate agent they could really trust. Our clients would tell their friends that we didn’t just broker a deal for a property, we found them their dream home.
A few years later in 1991 we were approached by Sotheby’s International Realty. They asked us to be their exclusive partner and to represent the Big Island of Hawaii. Soon after we became MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty and the successful affiliation has worked to this day because Sotheby’s is just as dedicated to their clients as we are.
Recently, Franchise Business Review chose Sotheby’s International Realty for the eighth year in a row for their “Best in Category for Real Estate Franchisee Satisfaction.” In addition the Sotheby’s International Realty brand came in first overall among the Top 50 “Systems with 250 or more units.”
President and Chief Executive Officer of Sotheby’s International Realty, Philip White, said, “This award essentially is our report card from our network, and we are so pleased that they hold us in such high regard within the ranking system. We continually strive to improve our service to our franchisees and we are grateful for this honor.”
We are pleased to be a part of the Sotheby’s family. With the aid of Sotheby’s vast network of clients and brokers, resources, and transaction management we have been able to bring our company up to an international standard. We are proud of our hand-picked team of top producing professionals as well as our Sotheby’s affiliates. Through this synergy we have consistently achieved record-breaking sales in the Big Island real estate market.
