Sotheby’s International Realty is returning to central Christchurch after three years.

It was forced to move from its Victoria St offices after the February 2011 earthquake and has recently found premises further north along the main road at 182 Papanui Rd, Merivale. 

The agency had only been established for a short time before the quakes but had clinched more than $25 million in central residential sales, according to co-founder and owner Mark Harris.

He says property sales are starting to look good again and the Canterbury recovery is well under way.

The Queenstown-based nationwide agency says it focuses on selling properties that are “the best in their class” – whether bare sections, modest apartments and town houses to high value rural properties.

The Merivale office is looking to expand agent numbers in the coming months, co-founder and co-owner Julian Brown says.

The New Zealand branch of Sotheby’s International Realty was founded in 2005 by Mark Harris and Julian Brown. 

It has 11 offices nationwide in Herne Bay and Parnell in Auckland, Coromandel, Hawkes Bay, Nelson, Christchurch, Wanaka, Arrowtown and its head office in Queenstown. 

It is part of the Sotheby’s International Realty group, with a global network of 750 offices and more than 15,000 agents.
