Friends and neighbors of the Blowing Rock community joined the folks at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty for the ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration of its newest locations on Sunset and Main streets on Tuesday afternoon.

“We were extremely pleased with the turnout,” said Don Blair, managing broker for Sotheby’s in Blowing Rock. “We had a great group — clients, friends and town officials. It was a really excellent response.”

The ribbon cutting was held at the Sunset Drive office and receptions followed at both locations.

“We want everyone to know that we have two offices in town to serve our clients. Sunset is now one of the gateways into Blowing Rock from the new U.S. Highway 321 widening project, so we are convenient to people that are coming into town,” Blair said. “Our office on Main Street is there to serve a lot of the people that like to walk downtown.”

Blair said the Sotheby’s team made the grand opening a priority in order to be sure the community was welcomed to join the celebration.

“Everybody enjoys having a little party, and that’s exactly what this was all about,” he said.

Blair had one message for folks in the High Country: “We’re here and we’re open for business.”

Premier Sotheby’s is the real estate division of the Naples, Fla.-based The Lutgert Companies, which opened the 1,800-acre Linville Ridge development in 1982. Serving as the exclusive marketing and sales brokerage of many other high-end developments, Premier Sotheby’s represents buyers and sellers of luxury homes and condos in Florida and North Carolina.

Premier Sotheby’s is an independent franchise of Sotheby’s International Realty, the latter of which was founded by the famed Sotheby’s auction house in 1976, several years after The Lutgert Companies started its real estate division.
