1a 1. Greek Island Villa Location: Mykonos, Greece Price: $5.7 million Listing Type: Single Family Beds/Baths: 5/5.1 Year Built: 2000 Bragging Rights: Chosen by AD as one of its favorite houses. Professional Opinion: This is my friend's beautiful summer house. Yep, I choose my friends wisely.
2 2. Colony Contemporary Location: Malibu, CA Price: $14.995 million Listing Type: Single Family Beds/Baths: 3/3.1 Year Built: 1968 Bragging Rights: Malibu. Professional Opinion: This is in that super-wide part of the Colony Beach just outside the gates. In my humble opinion, it's the best spot in Malibu. This one will go fast.
Hyannis1.jpg.647x431_q100_crop 3. Cape Cod Traditional Location: Hyannis Port, MA Price: $4.995 million Listing Type: Single Family Beds/Baths: 5/4.1 Year Built: 1895 Bragging Rights: 220 feet of beach. Professional Opinion: So, there was that rumor that Taylor Swift bought in Hyannis Port to be closer to the Kennedys. You know what we have to say about that? If I had the money, I'd do the same darn thing.

Professional Opinion: The OC was one of my favorite shows ever, and this is one of my favorite ways to do the OC.

No bragging necessary. Professional Opinion: Okay, so I'm still a Milwaukee girl at heart. I love this old lake house near my hometown.

day9.jpg.647x431_q100_crop 7. Santa Barbara Modern Location: Santa Barbara, CA Price: $12.9 million Listing Type: Single Family Beds/Baths: 3/2 Year Built: NA Bragging Rights: That killer view. Professional Opinion: Sure, Santa Barbara is known for its 1920s Spanish mansions, but what's wrong with throwing a great modern in the mix every once in a while?
