Foundation and Company Background

Sotheby's Malta

Information about Malta SIR - a real estate agency that is owned by a Maltese business development group and part of a global real estate network.

Malta Sotheby's International Realty is the Maltese arm of the Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC, (SIR) a global real estate company which in turn is a subsidiary of Realogy Holdings Corp (which incidentally includes the RE:MAX group which also operates in Malta). Realogy is a global leader in real estate franchising and provider of real estate brokerage and in SIR they created a network to provide independent brokerages with a powerful referral program and strong marketing for luxury property listings.

The formation of Malta SIR was funded by the CSB Group which offers diverse yet specialized business solutions and commercial services to a vast portfolio of corporate and private clients seeking to set up a business or relocate to Malta. The investment by CSB is a natural extension of their portfolio and is aimed at attracting prestigious international buyers into Malta.

Despite being part of a huge network, each SLR office is independently owned and operated in order to provide clients with that specialized, tailor-made service for each location.

Malta SIR is co-owned by Michael J Zammit, CEO of the CSB Group and Tony M Zammit, Group Chairman of CSB Group (who plays no part in the running of the Malta SIR business.)
