Dewees Real Estate has had a good few weeks in early 2017, as three oceanfront houses sold, one marshfront house is under contract, and two lots sold.  We’ve seen an increase in buyers looking to tour the island as well, and we’ve been delighted to help these buyers get in the homes or lots of their dreams this year.  In addition, sales prices are creeping up.
