Around & About in The Hamptons



Every man should be born again on January 1. Start with a fresh page.

Henry Ward Beecher
Cheers to 2023! A new year is a new opportunity, full of possibilities, hope, and potential. How lucky are we to start anew, to seize such opportunities with great enthusiasm, intent and excitement.
We loved seeing all those who were able to join us at our 1st annual Client Appreciation Happy Hour at the Montauk Distilling Company, sharing in great company, food and holiday cheer. We wouldn't be where we are without you, our loyal clients/friends. Thank you for making 2022 so meaningful!
Real Estate remains a very hot topic in almost every conversation. Folks want to know how the market is doing. Buyers are out there, watching and waiting. Despite what is appearing in the news on the daily, it is a great time to buy. Interest rates are NOT in the double digits. Interest Only Loans are the hottest item. There are beautiful homes, both on and off the market, that offer great value and should not be missed. Now is the time to capture these finds while avoiding the newly, added Community Housing Tax (0.5%).
The rental market is in motion. Summer vibes begin in the winter's chill. Don't delay. Tell your friends and family members. Summer is only 134 days away.
Wishing you a great start to 2023, full of optimism, health and happiness all year long.
Maria, Jill and team
