Sailfish Point on Hutchinson Island, Florida

Rarely does a community offer so much that the words “all inclusive” cannot do it justice. Sailfish Point, located on the farthest point of Hutchinson Island on Florida’s Atlantic coast, tops the charts in both amenities and exclusivity.

Within its 24 hour, armed guard patrolled gates, sit 520 breathtaking residences ranging from beachfront, multi-family homes to St. Lucie riverside condominiums. Among these residences is the Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, a full service marina, a concierge to plan your events, a community pool, 5 world class restaurants, a tennis club, a helicopter pad and a spa complete with nail salon, sauna and steam room.

The majority of these homes are offered at an understandably high price point however, Patrick Stracuzzi, Realtor/Sales Person with RE/MAX of Stuart, has a brand new Sailfish Point estate listed for an amazing $1,695,000.

With a total of 5,613 square feet, this home is quite spacious, but it’s most impressive quality, aside from the idyllic location, lies in its masterful construction. The entire home was built with reinforced concrete and impact proof windows, making it so durable that boarding up is completely unnecessary.

From the marble floors to the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, no detail went unnoticed in the design of this luxurious estate. The backyard was designed for relaxation with a saltwater pool and spa. Also present is a fifty foot private dock with easy access to the Atlantic.

According to Patrick Stracuzzi, a resident of Sailfish Point himself, “From community gatherings to evening dinner parties, there’s a sense of friendship throughout Sailfish Point that seems to have faded away from many other neighborhoods over time.”

While they are second to none, it is not the location or amenities offered by Sailfish Point that truly make it so special. It is, in the words of Patrick Stracuzzi, the fact that, “…you really can’t put a price on the safety of your family, the sense of peace living in this community offers is unparalleled.”

Hatteras Island, North Carolina

There are few places on the East Coast where you can watch the sun rise and set over endless miles of sea and sound. Hatteras Island is one of those places.

The 50-mile sliver of sand separating the glassy Pamlico Sound from the rolling swells of the Atlantic Ocean delicately frames the mainland, coming to a point where the Labrador Current and Gulf Stream meet. The Island’s natural landscape, spectacular weather and welcoming communities make it a haven for fun, adventure and relaxation. “When I discovered the Outer Banks, I fell in love with the beach all over again,” says Alex Risser, owner of Outer Beaches Realty.

Nearly every milepost along Highway 12 offers something for every traveler. North of Rodanthe, the Pea Island Refuge offers sanctuary to migrating birds and nature lovers. The northernmost villages, Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo, are charged with adventurous energy with some of the best surfing and kiteboarding on the Island.

Wandering further south after a stretch of wild dunes, Avon serves as a hub of restaurants, shopping and events without losing its relaxing and family-friendly flavor. Further still, Buxton and Frisco welcome fishermen, history buffs and treasure hunters with Cape Point, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and countless shops full of unique beach finds and local wares.

And where Highway 12 ends at the Ocracoke Ferry Terminal, the colorful Hatteras Village stretches into the sea. From here you can take a fishing charter or simply lounge on a deck and watch the boats float in with the tide.

It’s no surprise that between 80 and 90% of the properties here are vacation rentals, ranging from cozy one-bedroom condos to grand eight-bedroom houses. With lodging and activities to suit every style and budget, Hatteras Island is a premier destination for visitors and homeowners alike.

Patti Thomas, Leading Agent, RE/MAX Excalibur

by Lauryn Howell

For some, the place we call home is not where we were born and raised, but rather, the city that captured our hearts later in life. For Patti Thomas, Agent with RE/MAX Excalibur, this was Scottsdale, Arizona. An Ohio native, Patti has been living in Arizona for 32 years.

After taking some time away from her professional life to raise her son, Patti reentered the workforce in 2006 as a part-time house flipper. It wasn’t long before people started to take notice of the homes Patti was buying and selling. It was this that ultimately landed her a career in real estate.

Because of her passion for real estate and high standard of excellence, Patti decided to work independently with a support team of many leading experts, ensuring that she would be able to give each and every one of her clients the one-on-one service they deserve.

Her dedication to her clients has awarded her membership to the 100% Club, as well as the prestigious CPDE designation, ranking her among the top 3% of Realtors nationwide. Patti is also a multimillion dollar producer in the luxury homes market, putting her at the top of the charts for RE/MAX Southwest year after year.

Although she has many, one of Patti’s most exciting listings is the stunning, brand new, custom home at 18931 North 97th Place in Scottsdale. The beautiful courtyard opens up to reveal a luxuriously detailed home both inside and out. With four bedrooms, a media room, a large chef’s kitchen and outdoor lounge areas, this 4,769-square-foot residence is perfect for entertaining.

For Patti, there is nothing more important than creating the best possible experience for each of her clients. “It is my ability to understand the value of a property, the appraisal and inspection process so that my clients have a seamless experience when buying a home.”

She understands that they are trusting her with their single largest asset, saying that, “It’s a responsibility that I take very seriously. I give 100% because I know their success is ultimately my success.”

North Scottsdale: A Shining Gem Amidst Hillside Beauty

It is no coincidence that some of the most expensive land in Scottsdale is among the most recently developed parcels in North Scottsdale. Rich in Western heritage, elevations in this area are higher than the valley floor with temperatures considerably cooler in the summer. The late afternoon breezes make for comfortable outdoor enjoyment while dining under spectacular star-filled skies.

With breathtaking valley and mountain views, meandering streets wind through semi-custom and custom gated residential enclaves, each with their own signature style. Sprinkled through these communities are some of Scottsdale’s famous golf courses.

One of the most notable landmarks is the Boulders Resort Golf Club, a former Rockefeller property. The course is nestled in some of the most unique boulder outcroppings the area has to offer. The Boulders, not unlike many other gated country clubs and resort hotel enclaves, is testimony to a lifestyle centered around a welcoming community, not just a home.

While residents who are ready to sell may choose to down-size or move off of the golf course, we have found they almost always stay within the communities they have come to love so much. A large majority of these communities are second homes for residents who seasonally stay from late October until May, which becomes prime selling and buying time.

It is here that Gayle Henderson and Steve Klemow of RE/MAX Excalibur, both 23 year residents and Realtors in North Scottsdale joined forces, specializing in land, resort and second home properties. Both agents have extensive backgrounds with custom and semi-custom builders, assisting clients in following their dreams. These well-respected realtors are proud to combine both their education and experience to stay on the cutting edge of the real estate industry. When you work with Gayle and Steve, you will most definitely experience real estate like never before.

Efficient Real Estate Marketing Excellence

by Natalie Friedmann

“There’s no substitute for advance planning,” says Ron Boat, Executive Producer of Production Services Arizona, a full-service marketing and media production group. “Whether selling an expensive home or your company image, that concept applies.” 

Through 45 years of marketing production experience, PS/A has seen that considering all the long-term options and benefits and reviewing a client’s ultimate objective is paramount. For example, selling an expensive home or product may be the end goal, but take the opportunity to showcase the agency as well.

Whether reaching out to high-tech customers through print, video or a webcast, or training medical employees on the latest products and techniques, the services PS/A provides are based on a logical, systematic approach to communicating the message.

PS/A offers services of importance to their clients, while adding project efficiency and savings. One example of a service PS/A offers is drone video (as recently completed for a major hotel chain in Canada) – a thing of the future, especially for developers, builders and those trying to market large properties. However, PS/A services extend far beyond real estate marketing. They have studios capable of delivering a flawless 4-hour webcast (as they did for Herbalife) or multicity medical webcasts through the Vyvx fiber network. Their green screen studios add capability for those special projects needing creativity, as it did with their 3D animations for Gruppo Stilo Percassi, their Italian developer client.

“Our translations between 80 languages can train, sell or promote internationally,” says Boat. “We look at the needs and purpose of every project; we don’t just create videos, we deliver messages.”

PS/A has served the smallest and largest companies in the world including D.R. Horton, Intel, Swift Transportation, Troon, Johnson & Johnson, Hunt Group, S. Korea’s KDS and Medidas, and Spain’s ABENGOA. There is no job too large or too small or too far away. “We often say, ‘We are as easy to work with down the wire as we are down the street,’” says Boat.

Trust your next executive marketing project in the hands of these professionals, and prepare for positive, professional results.

Secluded & Sanctuous Scottsdale Estate

by Natalie Watson

One of the biggest draws to Arizona – and more specifically Scottsdale – for permanent and secondary residents is the pleasant weather, which makes outdoor living and recreation enjoyable all year. The topography of Scottsdale lends itself to a variety of outdoor recreational activities including bike riding, hiking mountain trails or indulging in 18-holes at one of the top golf courses in the nation. In addition, multiple local events such as the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction, Waste Management Phoenix Open, Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championship and the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show draw visitors from all over the world. 

Two of the most desired features when hunting for a new home are outdoor living spaces and views. Located in Scottsdale’s desirable Troon area, this luxurious custom home offers the utmost of both, with views stretching well beyond the 2-plus acre lot. In full Santa Barbara-style, the 6,923-square-foot home leaves little to be desired, from the large paved driveway and stone

entryway,

to the grand, open floor plan. The high-end wood, stone and tile details found throughout the home impeccably harmonize the interior design with the natural landscape. 

One unique feature of this Scottsdale home is the basement, complete with game room, custom bar, fire place, separate theater room and home gym. "Ideal for entertaining, this home has a gourmet kitchen, 700-bottle wine cellar off the formal dining room and a beautiful backyard with expansive covered patios, built-in bbq, fireplace, heated pool and spa – all surrounded by exquisite landscaping and beautiful mountain views," says listing agent Tracy Fitzgerald of Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty.

With over 11+ years of experience in luxury real estate, Tracy Fitzgerald is a buyer and seller’s dream agent.  Tracy has gained a reputation for being one of the hardest working professionals in the industry and has an unparalleled passion and enthusiasm for her work, as is evident in her awards and successes as a real estate agent. Tracy has recently been ranked Top 1% Agent in Arizona and is a Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate Significant Sales Award Winner.

“The View” - A Vancouver Island Estate

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada By Lauryn Howell

Transforming 43 empty acres of waterfront property into the site of a 16,216 square foot masterpiece is no easy feat, but former Alberta Rancher Gary Anderson managed to do just that. It took nearly five years to bring his dream home into reality, but his completed Vancouver Island estate is nothing short of magnificent.

The exterior of the home, accessed through a custom wrought iron gate, boasts a concrete tiled roof, solar heated infinity pool, hot tub, outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, guest house, ten granite patios/decks and, lastly, a helipad. Adding to this already impressive list is an onsite workshop equipped with lifts, tool rooms, 5 over head doors and enough space to store an RV.

Although the helicopter pad grants incredible ease of access, the home is just 20 minutes from Victoria International Airport. It’s also close to picturesque downtown Victoria, known for its abundant galleries, quaint tea rooms and unique restaurants.

In designing his estate, Gary Anderson ensured only the highest quality materials with the lowest maintenance necessary were used. He always paid close attention to the home’s ability to take advantage of the absolutely breathtaking views of the Saanich Inlet. It’s these panoramas that earned the home its fitting nickname, “The View.”

While the breathtaking views may draw residents outdoors, the interior offers its own impressive list of amenities, including two theater rooms, one with a game room, and a wine cellar and fitness room. Each of its 7 bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms is uniquely elegant, but it’s the master suite, complete with walk in closets, a fireplace and private deck with ocean views, that truly epitomizes the luxury of this home.

Vancouver Island’s stunning natural scenes rank it among the best. This luxurious estate offers residents the ability to fully immerse themselves in this raw beauty, enjoying it to the fullest, each and every day.

Round Lake Estate: Charlevoix, Michigan

By Lauryn Howell

When the founder of an award winning boat brand designs and builds a home from the ground up, one can certainly expect exceptional attention to detail. However, this Round Lake, Michigan estate defies even the wildest of expectations. No measure of comfort or luxury was spared in the design of the 10,437 square foot residence, featuring architecture expertly catered to the 102 feet of Round Lake frontage.

The three story main house is complete with 5 bedrooms, 7 full and 4 half baths, as well as a nanny’s apartment. Also present are a top-of-the-line kitchen with breakfast nook, butler’s pantry, living room and sunken bar with views of the boat house, a grand dining room, a theater room, a fully equipped outside deck and a fitness room. Each room is as extravagant as the next, teeming with rich mahogany accents, warm fire places, wooden floors and plush carpeting. While it may not seem possible, this estate has yet another crowning feature.

The entire residence was built around a private boat house with a completely insulated interior, finished in beautiful cypress wood. As if the 3 slips, 7 de-icers, 22 electric hoists and 9 hose bibs weren’t convenient enough, the boat house is attached to a woodshop containing 4 hoists of its own and a 40 foot long restoration room.

In the words of Pat O’Brien, Owner/Broker at Pat O’Brien & Associates, “This boat house lacks absolutely nothing.” Catering even further to boating enthusiasts, Round Lake’s deep canals allow access to countless other destinations.

To put it simply, there is nothing ordinary about this home. From the artfully designed interior, to the one of a kind boat house, there is not a single detail that has gone unnoticed. For more information on this property, visit PatOBrien.com.

Mountain Masterpiece: Waynseville, North Carolina

By Natalie Watson

Arguably one of the most picture perfect towns in the United States is Waynesville – a beautiful, quaint North Carolina town nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, just 30 miles west of Asheville. The half mile long Main Street epitomizes a vibrant, friendly downtown with an assortment of restaurants and art galleries amidst a small professional community.

One thing Waynesville is known for is its community of accepting, kind and generous people, and because of that, the area tends to attract residents and visitors that are the same. Much like the people you’ll find here, Waynesville is one of the most beautiful places in the world. “Once you make it to Western North Carolina, your life will never be the same,” says Mark Fields of Mark Fields & Associates, LLC. “You’ll always think about being here.”

One of the most luxurious properties currently on the market is located on approximately 1 acre in the established Laurel Ridge Country Club community. A true Cinderella story, this property had been previously neglected before the sellers came upon it and saw it for the beauty that it was. It has since been completely renovated and dare we say is “one of the most distinctive, elegant homes in Western North Carolina,” according to Fields, president of Mark Fields & Associates and the property’s listing broker whose firm specializes in luxury homes and unique mountain properties.

There are many subtle attributes throughout that make the property special – including the sense of grandness and beauty that overcomes you the minute you walk through the front door. Once you make your way down the entrance hall – reminiscent of a New York art gallery – the living space opens wide and the ceilings soar.

The floor-to-ceiling windows on nearly every wall allow you to feel the expanse of the outdoors. A back deck sweeps across the entire rear of the house, providing closer views of the breathtaking scenery. The home is excellent for a couple or small family who would take full advantage of the amenities of the property and of Waynesville.
