I’m fortunate to be part of the Sotheby’s International Realty network. Not only does it allow me to see some truly exceptional homes on a regular basis, but it also provides me with the opportunity to market my exclusive listings on a local, national and international stage.
When you list with me you’re not only getting exposure here in the Cape Ann real estate market, but rather the entire world. In today’s blog post I’m going to feature a collection of homes around the world, courtesy of my network of affiliates, that are all perfect island getaways. They may vary from style, location and appearance but they are all exceptional. I hope you enjoy them.
