“We are excited about offering our Block Island clients a local presence as well as the international reach of Lila Delman Real Estate”, stated John Hodnett, Principal Broker. “Additionally, we will be the first company on the island to offer the significant resources and benefits of the Multiple Listing Service. We are confident that our extensive marketing reach will, for the first time, introduce Block Island to our clients who may not have considered it or were unaware of the island prior to beginning their home search.”
Block Island is located approximately 13 miles off of the southern coast of Rhode Island and is known for its excellent bicycling, hiking, sailing, fishing, and miles of free public beaches.

Approximately 20% of the island is set aside for conservation.
