Gustave J. S. White Real Estate Expands Affiliation with Sotheby's International Realty

Rhode Island, May 2005 - Gustave J.S. White Real Estate, a real estate firm based in Newport, R.I., will now conduct business under the name Gustave White Sotheby's International Realty and will market all of its property listings under this new name.

The firm, which dates back to 1920 and is owned by Paul A. Leys and Christina K. West, previously marketed only designated property listings under the Sotheby's International Realty® banner.

"As one of the most prominent firms in Newport and along the Rhode Island coast, Gustave J.S. White is an ideal firm to carry our prestigious name in this desirable market," said Michael R. Good, president and CEO of Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates, Inc. "This affiliation is consistent with our goal of aligning with top residential brokerage firms to further strengthen our world-class network. Our international clientele will be well served by the talented team at Gustave White Sotheby's International Realty."

"It is a great honor to be a Sotheby's International Realty firm and be associated with such a select group of real estate companies," said Leys. "Although we have been associated with the Sotheby's International Realty name for 20-plus years, today's announcement begins a new chapter for us. Starting today, all of our clients' listings will be placed into Sotheby's International Realty marketing systems. This is a tremendous advantage for our clients."

"We made this decision not only for our clients, but also for our sales associates who will reap huge benefits from this affiliation," said West. "The Sotheby's International Realty name attracts quality clients, which will greatly help our talented associates secure even more listings and sales."

During the past six decades, Gustave J.S. White has represented numerous prestigious estates from throughout Newport County, and has been involved in many of the area's record sales. The company's 25 sales associates are based out of two offices, located at 37 Bellevue Avenue in Newport and 18 Granite Street in Westerly, R.I.
