NAPLES — Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, based in Naples, is expanding in the Tampa region, with the acquisition of Sun Vista Realty and Sun Vista Rental, which have been operating along the beaches of Pinellas County for 40 years.

In addition, the former sales office at 19139 Gulf Blvd. and rental office at 19455 Gulf Blvd., Suite 1 in Indian Shores will now operate as Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. The real estate professionals formerly affiliated with Sun Vista Realty have joined the Premier Sotheby’s International Realty team as global advisers, the release adds, “further strengthening the company’s position as the Gulf Coast luxury real estate leader.”
