The Summit Realty Team

In a field already crowded with numerous brokers and realtors, they have demonstrated their skills and commitment, and have helped numerous clients buy, sell and rent property, whatever market conditions prevail.
The Summit Realty Team chose EWM, a full service broker, because of its reputation in the field and because it matched their approach to the business of real estate brokerage.

It is the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s Great Estates, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, and Mayfair of London, thus providing the most widespread coverage of its properties and attracting buyers from all parts of the global marketplace. A leader in the fast developing technology of internet marketing, it was the first, and remains the strongest, player.
