About Gustave White
Sotheby’s International Realty

A leading Coastal Rhode Island real estate agency with offices in Newport and Tiverton Four Corners. We consider ourselves to be a “boutique” brokerage composed of 30-40 agents rather than hundreds. Our small office model allows us to build a collaborative working environment and to be extremely selective about our agents.

Local leaders in Rhode Island real estate

Established in 1925, the firm of Gustave JS White Real Estate has consistently been associated with fine real estate and auctions in the Ocean State. The company has been owned by Christina West and Paul Leys since 2000 and continues to offer buyers and sellers the hallmarks of exceptional service and professionalism. While specializing in the luxury market, the goal of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty is to represent properties of all kinds and in all price ranges with integrity and confidence.

In 1976, Gustave JS White Real Estate became one of the first Sotheby's International Realty® affiliates and have together achieved many of Rhode Island's highest and most notable sales. In 1985, the agency joined the network of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate and has served as the exclusive Regent Member for Rhode Island since 2004.

Our agents offer expertise in the three municipalities of Aquidneck Island: Newport, Middletown, and Portsmouth, as well Jamestown and the East Bay towns of idyllic Little Compton, Tiverton, and Westport, Massachusetts. We also cover real estate in Kent and Washington Counties, aka South County, as well as the Providence area.

Setting the highest standard, both at home and abroad

Established in 1976, Sotheby’s International Realty has become the world’s premier luxury residential real estate brokerage. As one of the brand’s very first real estate partners, Gustave White Sotheby’s Internationa Realty was named the exclusive affiliate for Newport County. Regarded for our integrity, professional service, and community involvement, we produce extraordinary results by leveraging the brand’s proprietary global marketing, cutting edge digital strategies, and unrivaled access to the most affluent and discerning global clientele.

Giving Back

A fixture in Newport, Rhode Island for almost a century, Gustave White Sotheby's International Realty has always abided the philosophy of giving back to the communities where we live and work. Our leadership and agents are involved at every level of local life – serving on influential foundation and school boards, supporting land conservation and the arts, and volunteering with non-profit social organizations.

Our agents also donate a portion of every sales commission, matched dollar-to-dollar by the company, and are active in promoting under-served local charities to receive our monthly “Give Back” contribution.
