When we asked REALTOR® Heather Galvin of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty in Newport, Rhode Island what she loves about where she lives and works, this is what she had to say..

What do I enjoy most about Newport?

“I love that in Newport you can walk out your door and find something interesting and beautiful around every corner.  From the natural beauty of the beaches to the stunning architecture that surrounds us here.  I also enjoy that this thriving, vibrant city is rich with history that it continues to honor. The community here is amazing, diverse yet tight knit, and full of remarkable people from every walk of life.”

Why is real estate exciting to me?

“Newport County is a fascinating place to be a realtor.  There’s a wide range of properties from luxury estates to lovely family homes to open land.  I enjoy getting to know clients, helping them find the right property and walking them through the process, whether it be buying or selling a home.  Real estate is so exciting because it’s certainly not dull and you never stop learning, whether it be from other realtors or your own clients. “
