The July issue of Significant Sales features top sales from Manhattan, where the market has been hot this summer. The west coast of the United States also has reported top sales in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Newport Beach. We are proud to report the sale of historic Clarendon Court in Newport, Rhode Island. The pace of high-end sales has accelerated recently, which reflects growing demand, shrinking inventory and stable financial markets. Below is a preview of the top three sales.
