As part of the Sotheby’s International Realty network all of my exclusive listings are distributed on a local, national and international level regardless of price point. This allows me to provide white glove service to all of my exclusive listings, regardless of the price point. In an online world working with a real estate professional with an international network is key. Because of my network I am fortunate to preview some truly exceptional homes right here in Cape Ann and beyond.
In today’s blog post I’m going to feature some truly exceptional homes that happen to be new to the market from some of my affiliates around the world. They may vary incredibly in terms of style and appeal, but they all share one characteristic: they are all at the epitome of luxury. I hope you enjoy them.
