  Saranac, NY - 2/24/03 - The sale of the "world's only Atlas-F missile-silo luxury home, for $2.1 million plus, in a 30-day auction-style posting on e-bay, has fueled  speculation that the marketing of unique property via the internet may well be the technique of choice in the future. Bruce Francisco ( partner with Greg Gibbons of  the Silohome)  and Don Peters were responsible for the successful marketing of the facility, noted his company's intention to remain active in the luxury real-estate field saying, "The success we encountered marketing the silo-home is a testament to the presence of a viable market for unique real-estate."  With the countless inquiries from various people nationally to sell their Real Estate, Robert Francisco a licenced  NY Real Estate Broker and son, Bruce Francisco have decided to group together with the help of Don Peters  and launch Silohome Reality.

  The auction drew intense national as well as international media attention, including segments aired on  20/20 , The Today Show, "Extreme Homes" and numerous network newscasts. The home has also been featured on Japanese, Russian and Canadian networks. The auction itself generated more visits, than any piece of real-estate ever offered in the history of e-bay.
