As a Historic, Waterfront and Equestrian Property Agent, it is a rare opportunity to represent Sellers of adjoining Estates and bring both Properties to the successful completion as SOLD properties.   I feel a great sense of accomplishment and at the same time I realize that it is the end of an era of ownership and stewardship that has passed to new owners who have and will each take their properties to the next level and live beautiful lives there! It was my honor to play a part in bringing these transactions to a close.
