What Our Clients Say

“My recent purchase of a home at The Aquidneck Club with the help of Stacie Mills and Mary Waddington of Vanderbilt International Properties was a fantastic decision for me and my family.  The transaction, one of many real estate investments I have made, was the most positive I have ever had.  Mary and Stacie were informed, kind, professional and made the transaction simple.  Living at The Aquidneck Club since closing in May 2021 has been more wonderful than I had hoped, affording me and my family a beautiful piece of real estate with Narragansett Bay view, a robust social life with exciting and interesting people, amazing and challenging golf and the full-service amenities of a world class resort.  I am also enjoying working just a stones-throw, not a commute, from play  …   I play where I live now.”

-Tracy B.

“It has been a pleasure working with Stacie Mills and the Vanderbilt team when purchasing my home and Narragansett Bay Club. The VIP Ltd. team continue to follow-up with us long after the sale of the property.  Stacie is the Steve Jobs of Real Estate….I may just sell this house and buy another so I can work with her again…” -Steve M.
