Hamptons Rising Stars

Luisa Keszler has been exposed to the market from early in childhood. Having earned degrees in Sociology and Marketing from the University of Miami, she went on to learn the business side of real estate as a Marketing Coordinator. Once Luisa became an agent, she immediately achieved success by assisting a number of customers in finding their dream homes.

Facing Summer

Most women (and men) who reach a certain age would sell their souls for younger skin. Before meeting with Mephistopheles, check out these face treatments.

Musical Chairs

Another year, another game of restaurant musical chairs. Where, oh where, will our favorite eats be this year? Here’s the scoop ... information gathered by our network of spies, especially commercial real estate honcho Hal Zwick of Town & Country Real Estate.

Artists to Know

There aren’t too many Hamptons real estate professionals (if any) who can claim to be both a working artist and have an entry on Internet Movie Data Base (IMDb.) After pursuing an acting career in New York, Joseph De Sane moved to the South Fork where the thespian switched to a career in real estate, a move that has led to his current position as a manager at Compass. More on his IMDB credits later.

Healing Hamptons

Maybe it’s all those negative ions blasting off the Atlantic. Or maybe it’s all the stressed out New Yorkers. There seem to be countless healers who have hung their shingles on the South Fork. We visited a few complementary practitioners plying various forms of healing.

Artists You Need to Know

Connie Fox, who’s now in her 80s, remembers her early life in the Dust Bowl when the wind blew clouds of soil, called “black rollers,” through her Colorado town. While the village ladies predicted the end of the world, six-year-old Connie found it “kind of interesting.” She also marveled at the tumbleweed that rolled over the prairie.

Spa-Licious Pampering

There’s nothing like having a comforting spray of warm steam directed at your face during deep winter, especially while a litany of sumptuous plant-based potions are massaged into your parched skin. I found Geomare on a street in Southampton Village I didn’t know existed, tucked off Windmill Lane near where it intersects with North Sea Road.

Travel Showcase - Sand Castles

For most travelers, the United Arab Emirates calls to mind futuristic skylines where sci-fi towers pierce the clouds and indoor malls shelter racetracks and ski slopes. Each winter I spend most of January in the UAE to escape the cold weather in New York...

Where Brokers Live

One day in 2005 while sitting in an open house at one of her listings in Sagaponack North, Sotheby’s agent Dana Trotter took a look around and realized that it was the perfect property for her and her family. A prize-winning equestrienne who rode professionally before entering real estate 18 years ago, the parcel was not only large – three acres – but also had paddocks and a barn that could be perfect for a stable.

Born Again Gurney's

Two years ago a new owner bought Gurney’s Inn from the Monte family, which had owned the sprawling oceanfront resort since 1956. A trip there was always like visiting an old and beloved aunt. It was familiar and comfortable, but down at the heel. Alright, it was downright tacky.
