Our company has just entered a brand-new market. Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty is excited to announce that buyers and sellers in the Berkshires can now work with our firm to handle all of their real estate needs. This key resort market is sought after by many as their second home destination of choice, and we are thrilled that they can now experience the many unique benefits of our brand. These include the power of our global network of affiliated firms, the exceptional service and deep knowledge of our real estate experts, and our worldwide marketing strength.
In evaluating strategies for the expansion of our firm, we felt that entering the Berkshire market was a natural choice. After all, the area is located very close to our highly successful operations in the Litchfield Hills and is accessible for the many buyers and sellers in Connecticut and New York that have a relationship with us. Known for its recreational and cultural amenities and its superb pastoral beauty, the Berkshires has served as a retreat for the affluent for nearly two hundred years, with the Vanderbilts and Morgans having constructed grand properties here. Today, the area is sought after for its famed attractions like Tanglewood Music Center, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival and Shakespeare & Company theater in addition to its historic estates and gardens, great food, excellent shopping, and local museums and studios. Those who enjoy exploring nature delight in its scenic hills and mountains, peaceful lakes and rivers, and state forest and hiking trails including a part of the Appalachian Trail.
Located at 308 Main Street in the town of Great Barrington, often referred to as the region’s cultural hub and named by Smithsonian Magazine as one of America’s Twenty Best Places to Live, our latest office is right in the heart of Southern Berkshire County and all that it has to offer. Carolyn Fugere, manager of Litchfield Hills Sotheby’s International Realty’s four offices, will lead our new operations. We have worked closely with Carolyn to identify a dream team of real estate professionals to represent our company in the Berkshires, each bringing years of local experience and expertise in the region. We look forward to our new venture with much excitement, and are ready to start working with purchasers and sellers of fine property in this important New England market.
