The North Fork Table is a venerable institution we all got to cherish: In just a few years Mike and Mary Mraz, Claudia Fleming, and Gerry Hayden incorporated the best of North Fork (Sea) food, produce and wine into the place I cannot picture the North Fork without anymore. Our Southold office could not imagine better neighbors! Just ask any of our agents.

Almost everything the North Fork Table does warrants a blog. But the Lunch Truck - the newest idea of these culinary creators- taps right into the essence of the North Fork – for lunch! – and all you who enjoy lunch should know about it! The concept is simple and very North Fork – the food – take out only- is remarkable and reasonable. Their Steak (Filet) sandwich is out of this world, their North Fork pulled Pork sandwich delicious. Service is quick and friendly – a step above.

So come visit our Town and Country offices in Southold to talk about Real Estate -buying or selling- around Lunch Time – and bring your appetite!

RealtyTrac Misses the Mark

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

RealtyTrac continues to miss the mark on Long Island Foreclosure numbers.

The Lis Pendens filings have been dropping during the past several months, but a recent Newsday article quoted RealtyTrac’s February 2011 numbers as showing a 23% jump from a year earlier.
The actual Lis Pendens numbers from February 2010 and February 2011 show a 41% decrease in new filings.
