Douglas Elliman’s husband-and-wife team Jim Saladino and Elaine Hammond find buying, then reimagining, a Hamptons home is the latest trend driving the local real estate market.
This Quogue waterfront home at 37 Old Main Road comes with a private dock slip and landing, and is on the market for $3.75 million.
Two heads are better than one when it comes to finding the perfect home in the Hamptons. Jim Saladino and his wife, Elaine Hammond, of Douglas Elliman, have become a go-to resource for anyone moving to the beach and looking to live in luxury. Says Saladino, “The trend we’re seeing now is people are renovating traditional homes and renovating interiors.”
Today, the duo work with clients on a daily basis and connect with buyers and sellers as both fellow locals in the area and agents with decades of experience in the East End. Saladino and Hammond have been working together for years, and have met each rising trend in the market with even greater success. “Our whole thing is credibility, honesty, and hard work,” says Saladino, who grew up in Southampton and worked as a tennis professional at local clubs before getting into real estate. “That’s really what we put together as a team.”
That direction has led the pair to great heights, with clients finding their husband-and-wife dynamic genuine and trustworthy. “We say, ‘Let the strength of two work for you.’” Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 104 Main St., Westhampton Beach, 898-2229
