Well, it was pritt-tee impressive this past June. Though all 6 Newport County towns are favoring buyers ever so slightly, the market's much closer to parity than it's been in years. Inventory is on the rise, but homes are moving when they're priced competitively. Do you know what your home is worth? We do, and we would love to taik to you about it!
Woody Allen and US in Newport! - Quiet On The Set!
The latest Woody Allen film is being shot in Newport with Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix and Parker Posey. Not only was one of our stunning listings at 6 Greenough Place, used in the filming, but Cathy & I are on set!! Don’t look for us in the credits (not yet anyway) but we are lucky enough to know the head of lighting Frans Weterrings (Red Sky Studios) and he is kind enough to invite us up close for a VIP tour of the set in front of the Franklin Spa (a local, beloved diner) on Spring Street.
Anyone that really knows me knows that I love this kind of thing! and WOW! it was just so fun. My early days in College studying Theatre and Cathy’s volunteer experience with Newport International Film Festival
Leah & Cathy at 2014 Volvo Transatlantic Pre Start
Summer in Newport, RI means world class sailing of every description - on the Bay, in the Ocean, through the harbor.
All. The. Time.
But there was special excitement in the air the afternoon of July 9th at Fort Adams State Park when Cathy & I took a break from real estate to cheer on Volvo Ocean Race teams, Abu Dhabi and Alvimedica, at the Pre Start of their Transatlantic voyage. Team Alvimedica’s crew includes three Rhode Islanders, Nick Dana (Newport) Charlie Enright (Bristol) and on board reporter Amory Ross (Newport).
Wishing two great boats and two great crews a speedy and safe crossing. This is the only time we will see two Volvo Ocean Race boats together until their return to Narragansett
