Premier Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that Gulfshore Realty, a highly respected boutique brokerage on Marco Island, has merged with the company. The principals and top-producing sales professionals of Gulfshore Realty, Kristine Bareis and Jeffery Gilman, have joined forces with its Marco Island office, located at 760 North Collier Boulevard, Suite 101.

As well-known accomplished area REALTORS® since 1978, Kristine Bareis and Jeffery Gilman have specialized in the Marco Island luxury real estate market with a particular expertise in the Cape Marco community. Both were involved in the sales, design, development and marketing of Cape Marco from inception to completion before opening Gulfshore Realty in 2001. Ranked among the top individual agents in production on the island, they have achieved some of the most significant real estate sales in the area, and recently represented the highest-priced condominium sale on the beach through the second quarter of 2022. Attaining numerous accolades through the decades, Kristine and Jeffery have consistently been recognized as “Best in Client Satisfaction” by the Gulfshore Life magazine property buyers survey.

“It is an honor to welcome Kristine and Jeffery to our team,” said Budge Huskey, president and chief executive officer of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. “Their commitment to customer service, extensive knowledge of the island and track record of success in the community will be a valuable asset to our company.”
