Vineyard Open House is the Island’s newest real estate company. Owner David Lott and broker Mary Sullivan welcomed friends, family and local businesses to a grand opening celebration on September 25, at their new offices on Union St. opposite Murdick’s Fudge in Vineyard Haven.

“We wanted to thank all the people who have been supportive of us, have given us encouragement, ideas and their enthusiasm,” Mr. Lott said. “Mary and I are really excited about finally opening our doors and then welcoming our first listing — all in the first week of officially being open for business. Quite a wonderful way to get started.”

The new office features a “digital showroom” which showcases the firm’s more than 40 web sites, blogs and social media, according to a press release.

“The digital showroom is a way to not only present all the real estate available on the Island and at resort communities around the country,” Mr. Lott said. “But to also demonstrate the varied array of Internet tools we have at our disposal to market our clients’ properties. ”

In 1995, Mr. Lott founded the GolfCourseHome and WaterViewHome Networks, a 44-member website network which features more than 100 resort communities in North America and the Caribbean.
