Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Announces Significant Sale in Weekapaug by Jim and DeeDee Buffum

Westerly, RI (October 27, 2017) – Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce the sale of 11 Winona Avenue, Westerly, RI for $2,500,000. According to data from the Rhode Island Statewide Multiple Listing Service, this sale is in the top ten sales in the municipality so far this year. Additionally, Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty represented a total of six sides in these top ten sales. The sellers of this classic Weekapaug summer cottage were represented by DeeDee Buffum, Broker Associate, and the buyers by Jim Buffum, Sales Associate; both of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

According to DeeDee Buffum, “This cherished, seasonal summer cottage offers water views of the Atlantic Ocean and was a regular summer rental for families returning year after year to enjoy a month of fun at the beach. Demand for Weekapaug rentals and sales remains high, while supply remains very low. It was an honor to help the owners through the rental years and with the sale. I look forward to seeing the next chapter at 11 Winona Avenue.”

“Weekapaug has long been a summer haven for seasonal visitors. I enjoy the chance to continue to share my knowledge of the area and all that is meant to be treasured here,” adds Jim Buffum.

A fourth-generation Weekapauger, Jim Buffum has extensive ties to the community along with his wife DeeDee Buffum. Former owners of the Weekapaug Inn, the Buffums have turned their service and hospitality focus to summer rentals and real estate sales in the area.
