1462998047NEWPORT, RI — Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty has again been named “Best Real Estate Agency” for an unprecedented seventh time by the readers of Newport Life Magazine, having also been named in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. No other Newport County business has ever won more than five “Best Ofs”. Newport Life’s “Best Of” awards were established by the magazine in 1996 and are bestowed on leading businesses in Newport County on an annual basis. Awards are determined by readership votes, and are limited to one vote per subscription.

The Newport-based agency has been in business since 1924, growing out of the firm of Andrews & White. In l976, the firm became the first agency to enter into an exclusive affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty®. Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty is also the exclusive Regent member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate for Rhode Island.


During the past ten decades, the firm has been the agency of record for many notable Newport County estates and oceanfront residences such as “Hammersmith Farm”, “Gray Craig”, “Seaweed”, “The Playhouse”, “Broadlawns”, “Avalon”, “Hopedene”, and “The Wyndham Estate”. In 2000, Gustave White was involved in the reselling of the “Gray Craig” estate in Middletown for a then record price, as well as the sale of “Miramar” on Bellevue Avenue in 2006, which continues to hold the record as the highest price paid for a residential property in Rhode Island to date.
