duPont REGISTRY A Buyers Gallery of Fine Homes February 2019 Uncovered

This is an exciting issue for us. Not only do we have some outstanding editorial features this month – Winter Getaways and Master Suites – we also have some exceptional featured properties in this issue.

As many of you may know, this issue is one of my personal favorites as it has extra distribution at one of the premier, internationally-recognized automotive events: Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale. With this extra exposure, we would be remiss if we didn’t showcase some fantastic Arizona properties.
