“We have grown our business based on creating a culture where people feel safe and familial,” explained Chris Richardson, President of Richardson Sotheby’s International Realty. “We’ve been able to curate this amazing group of people that make up our support staff associates, real estate professionals, and leadership team. When you have amazing people, incredible things happen.”


With Chris Richardson and Brooke Sutton, key leaders of the brokerage, at the helm of the business, Richardson Sotheby’s International Realty will embark on a new chapter of real estate excellence backed by the support of Majestic Realty and the power of the iconic Sotheby’s International Realty brand.

“The Sotheby’s International Realty brand is arguably the most renowned and respected real estate brand in the world. I look forward to the collaboration, networking, and idea sharing that come with this alignment of both businesses,” said Richardson.


Mark A. McLaughlin, of McLaughlin Ventures, served as the strategic advisor to Richardson Properties throughout the brokerage’s transition to the Sotheby’s International Realty network. “Representing Richardson Properties and working closely with the Majestic Realty team was a pleasure. This combination will certainly create greatness,” stated McLaughlin.
