Auction of Premium Resort Properties in Florida

. September 18, 2008

ORLANDO, Fla – Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty ( www.StirlingSIR.com) will host a global auction of selected luxury homes and properties at the renowned Ginn Resorts — Reunion, Bella Collina and Hammock Beach – all in the heart of Central Florida.

Ginn Reunion Resort is a luxury golf community that offers recreational amenities to create the ultimate family vacations. The resort features three signature golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson.

Hammock Beach is a luxury beachside resort on Florida’s East Coast, featuring two championship golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson.
Bella Collina is a luxury lakeside community that brings a touch of Tuscany to Central Florida, and features a golf course designed by Nick Faldo.

More than twenty homes, ranging in price from GBP163,500 to GBP2.1 million, are expected to be auctioned on October 25, 2008 at 11:00 am EDT. Stirling Sotheby’s will announce its formal house line-up on September 25, 2008. Properties will be available for sale in person or online at: www.auctionsbystirling.com.

“We believe this will be one of the most exciting auctions of the year,” said Roger Soderstrom, owner and founder of Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty. “We are expecting a great deal of interest from buyers across the globe, especially in the United Kingdom.”

To reach those buyers, Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty will conduct a global marketing campaign. “We will aggressively market the properties to potential buyers in the UK and Europe, as well as the U.S. and Canada,” said Soderstrom.

Located in the theme park capital of the world, Reunion is within minutes of Disney World, Sea World, Universal Orlando Resort, Florida’s famous beaches and dozens of other world-class attractions. Orlando draws 50 million visitors each year, 3.5 million being international visitors.

With the historic value of the pound — matched with current hot housing deals in Central Florida — this auction is expected to deliver great value for discriminating UK buyers. The Florida real estate market is starting to rebound after a two-year market correction.

But sellers are also in luck. Stirling Sotheby’s is still accepting auction properties for Reunion, Hammock Beach and Bella Collina property owners interested in taking advantage of this opportunity to sell their resort homes with ease and speed.

“We already have some stunning homes that have opted in,” said Lori Chips, Director of Auction Services for Stirling Sotheby’s. “But we always want to give our international audience the widest possible selection to choose from.”

Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty is working with the British Homes Group ( www.britishhomesgroup.com), a lender that provides creative financing options for foreign national buyers.
