2016 Notable Sales

What makes a sale notable? Is it the price paid? Days on the market?

While market price and marketability are notable traits, we find that most homes are notable for the intangible as well as the tangible.

Unique. Historic. View. Location. Design. Here are a few of our favorite notable home sales from 2016. Congratulations to all of our agents on a great year!

Contemporary Style

The contemporary home label has evolved from recent types of home design which vary in style. Connecting the indoor with the outdoor is a common application with the contemporary home as well as the use of sustainable materials such as wood coupled with natural light.  Creating a clean line while maintaining a bright and inviting space is the magic of the contemporary home and develops a space that is both beautiful and pleasing.
