)-- Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty today announced the Sotheby’s International Realty brand’s launch of a branded website for the Historic specialty market.
The specialized website, which can be found at HistoricpropertySIR.com, matches the look and feel of the Sotheby’s International Realty website, http://www.sothebysrealty.com, and provides detailed Historic lifestyle and listing information and resources. The website enables buyers and sellers to search for the finest historic properties and the sales professionals who represent them. It covers a full spectrum of lifestyle types and properties including landmarks, properties of design and historic significance, and properties that are on the National Registry. Paul A. Leys, co-owner of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, said, “We are delighted with the advent of the new website to showcase our historic listings in Newport and South County to those who are looking for a home with a provenance. It allows us to present our expertise in historic homes and show how the charm of the historic can be seamlessly combined with the amenities of today’s lifestyles.”
The Historic specialty market website launched with more than $1.6 billion of historic property listings worldwide. The website joins the brand’s previously launched Farm & Ranch, Waterfront, Ski and Golf specialty market websites.
“Time-honored properties offer living legacies for those that own them,” said Wendy Purvey, chief marketing officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “We created the Historic specialty market website to celebrate these homes. From centuries-old European castles to pre-Revolutionary War plantations to National Registry landmarks, we are proud to represent some of the finest historical properties in the world: those that carry the soul and unique attributes of those who have called them home. These special properties require skill to effectively market, and our network of professionals has access to our innovative marketing tools and global connections, helping bring new life into these special homes.”
