Introduction to Vanderbilt International Properties and the Newport areas hidden gems, diversions, secret spots and insider info on fun!
Welcome to the launch of our new website and our “NEWPORT CURATED” Lifestyle Blog! Allow me to introduce myself, I am Stacie Mills, the principal real estate broker of Vanderbilt International Properties Ltd., a boutique firm based in Newport, RI.
I founded the firm, with Peter de Savary, a long-time friend, mentor and visionary, who I worked for in different parts of the world introducing private club and unique real estate experiences from Grenada, West Indies to The Abaco Club on Winding Bay, in The Bahamas to amazing stone cottages at Bovey Castle located in Devon, England. Peter de Savary’s, or PdeS as those close refer to him, love affair with Newport started during his America’s Cup Bid for Great Britain in 1983 and he has had a decided and remarkable presence here in Newport ever since.
A little about me, I am a Texan by birth and upbringing, however, Newport has been home to me for over 20 years. I feel blessed to call it home, and look forward to sharing experiences and hidden gems in and around Newport, sprinkled in with some featured real estate. I love to entertain, especially polo tailgating, and feel I am a people alchemist of sorts – love bringing new people together. I am in the perfect business for meeting new people, introducing them to fun new folks, Newport and many times, the perfect residence for them in the Newport area.
The other very important member of our team, is Mary Waddington, our senior sales associate and my partner in all sorts of adventures… real estate or beyond. Mary is knowledgeable, a great deal of fun, and is genuinely the nicest person you will ever meet. Mary is the “Ying” to my “Yang” which makes working together a joy. I also call her “Watson” on occasion, for her keen research skills.
You will get to know more on Peter, Mary and myself a bit better as the blog progresses.
The VIP Team: Stacie Mills, Peter de Savary and Mary Waddington
We look forward to sharing our Newport and the surrounding area with you in the blogs and posts to come. Our next blog will focus on Newport International Polo and the “la Bamba Polo Ball” to be held this weekend! I am especially excited as we are honoring the team/club from Mexico. Being a Texan, any excuse for margaritas, street tacos and homemade salsa with friends/clients and new guests works for me!
Next Week Our Blog Will Feature: Newport International Polo and the “la Bamba” Polo Ball
