dmre-dean-1500atl107

With over 13 million dollars in sales, three current listings, and four transactions set to close after the first of the year, 2016 has proven to be a banner year for The Townsend Team. From stately Classical Revival homes, to charming historic cottages, to sunny beach condominiums, we listed and sold many unforgettable Key West dream homes in 2016.

We hope you will enjoy our third annual list of our favorite home sales of the year. Not only did we wish we were buying these wonderful properties for ourselves, family, or friends, we had a great time working with the buyers, sellers, real estate agents, loan officers, closing attorneys, and all the individuals that helped make these transactions happen.

Happy New Year!

When Dean’s mother, Kathleen, decided to relocate to Key West a few years back, we were delighted to find her a condominium at Key West by the Sea. After completing a full renovation of her unit, she was—and continues to be—thrilled with her sleek and stylish new home. We love that she is living in a well maintained, gated community with a strong and stable association. Our concerns for Kathleen’s comfort and safety were greatly diminished by deed restrictions in place to control rentals and to require background checks for all owners and tenants. Kathleen is always delighted to let us show off her beautiful condo to our clients that are looking for a home at Key West by the Sea.
