Central Coast Sotheby’s International Realty has a long-standing history on the Central Coast when Michael Barnes first established his real estate business at the corner of Main Street and Arlington Street in Cambria over thirty years ago. While real estate itself has changed over the years, the values of service, professionalism, and expertise have not and continue today within our office. In 2006 Barnes & Associates Realty, Inc. joined with Sotheby’s International Realty to offer both clients and the agents the connection and legacy of the luxury brand. The power of the Sotheby’s International Realty global network of exceptional agents has connected buyers and sellers to the Central Coast and has enhanced the services our office provides to all clients.
In 2019 Michael Barnes decided to redirect his real estate focus outside of ownership and Leslie Dougherty became the owner/responsible broker for Barnes and Associates Sotheby’s International Realty. In 2022, Leslie moved forward with the name change to Central Coast Sotheby's International Realty. The office is the only woman-owned Sotheby’s International Realty in San Luis Obispo County and is expanding its services down the coast. Bringing in the high-tech tools and maintaining our exemplary service to our extraordinary clients, Central Coast Sotheby’s International Realty is the brokerage of choice for those who seek the best. Nothing Compares.
