Current exclusive you might be interested in
263 Surfside Drive, Bridgehampton; a $29.95 million, seven-bedroom contemporary home on the Atlantic with a gunite pool and a pair of outdoor kitchens.
To team, or not to team?
It’s a family affair: Her son Matthew has been a partner for the past six years; husband Stephen, a builder, constructed many houses she has sold.
What’s special about working out here?
“I meet so many interesting people. And I love when guys who are the heads of industries, in the paper every day, call me and ask, ‘Susan, what do you think?’”
Feather in her cap
The Wall Street Journal named her the number-one Hamptons broker for 2012, the second year running, for $253 million in sale volume.
Something we don’t know about the Hamptons
It doesn’t always have to be about the ocean. The bay side is great for boating and crabbing.
Summer can be a sleepy market. True this year?
“Not at all. The market is crazy. High-net-worth people who are staying with friends look around and say, ‘Isn’t it a great time to buy? I was supposed to go to Corsica, but I need to stick around!’”
Favorite real estate trend
“Outdoor entertaining spaces. People are building properties with pergolas along with fireplaces, fire pits, and amazing kitchens with pizza ovens. The infinity pools and spas along with everything else can make it feel more like being at a five-star resort than in someone’s backyard.”
Advice you’re most likely to give to your buyers
“Buy now, because the market is getting busier everyday. Quality properties in good locations are going fast and are much harder to find. As we all know, when inventory starts to deplete, the price start to increase.” 1936 Montauk Hwy., Bridgehampton, 899-0303
