duPont REGISTRY A Buyers Gallery of Fine Homes® August 2020 Uncovered

Dear Reader,

WOW – can you believe it’s been 25 years since we premiered our first duPont REGISTRY A Buyers Gallery of Fine Homes®? What a ride it has been, especially in the last three to six months with every one of us being affected in some way. On a more local/personal front, we as a company have made a big move; literally. We moved out of a very large building that we occupied for 20 years to a much more light, bright and efficient office. And let me tell you – it was no small task. One thing it has helped us understand and, therefore, be able to relate better than ever to you, our readers and advertising partners, is that moving is not for the faint of heart. Big moves. Small moves. Corporate moves. Individual or family moves. All of them require a lot of hard work and coordination by everyone involved. To sum it up – that’s how we spent our time celebrating the 25th Anniversary of our Luxury Homes Division.

Throughout that time, though, we have still taken great care to curate the best listings to showcase here, in our 25th Anniversary issue.

— Thomas L. duPont, Publisher Emeritus
