Sotheby's International Realty Canada has officially laid roots in Paris, Ontario, as the luxury brokerage's new office grand opening was celebrated on June 30.

Now open at 11 Mechanic Street, Unit #1, the Paris office stands in the community's downtown core, just steps from the Grand River, and a 20-minute drive from both Brantford and Cambridge.

Established in 1850, Paris is located in Brant County, and boasts the county's largest population centre.

Located where the Nith River meets the Grand, and dappled with countless stone heritage buildings -- not to mention lush treescapes and local eateries -- the community was voted "the Prettiest Little Town in Canada" by Harrowsmith Magazine.

Kevin Haight and Alicia Haight, Sotheby's International Realty Canada Sales Representatives, bring more than 30 years of combined experience to the new office.

With $1B in sales under his name, Kevin brings consistency and high-level expertise to the Paris team. His range of experience is extensive, with sales ranging from custom estate homes and condo and redevelopment sites through to residential and industrial land, operating farms, and golf courses.
