Mayfair International Realty members, Lila Delman Real Estate, in partnership with the Newport Historical Society, have launched an innovative new web-based app entitled Explore Historic Newport. The new app, which is free of charge, allows visitors to tour the City by the Sea either remotely or in person; learn about sites as diverse as "The Breakers", "Cardines Field" and "Touro Synogouge". Unlike most mobile apps, Explore Historic Newport is designed to work on any platform that accesses the web, such as a smart phone, tablet or desktop computer.
The app may be accessed at the newly designed Lila Delman Real Estate site. Several launch events are scheduled to take place in Newport to promote this unique enterprise.
Lila Delman Real Estate, long recognized as Rhode Island’s premier historic luxury property brokerage and a dedicated supporter of historic preservation, believes that the partnership with Newport Historical Society is a natural, reflecting the company’s Rhode Island roots, its passion for the state’s history, and its commitment to exploring new technologies. To date, the tech-savvy company has won several important state preservation awards for renovations to their corporate offices. Known for the sales of such iconic Rhode Island landmarks as Gray Craig and Beacon Rock Carriage House, company president Melanie Delman explained the company’s partnership with Newport Historical Society thusly, “When this unique opportunity presented itself it was an easy decision to partner with the Newport Historical Society. We believe in the Rhode Island areas we live and work in, and I think there is no more rewarding way to do well than by doing good in our own community. And this new app is the perfect fit for us, because showcasing Rhode Island’s great historic properties is what we do best.”
