LADIES WHO LUNCH!

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Town & Country Real Estate proudly supports the Ladies Village Improvement Society, INC. One event we particularly enjoy partaking in is the Landmark Committee Luncheon. This year’s Annual Luncheon was at The Devon Yacht Club in Amagansett.

Mother Nature was showing off her powers outside, but the lecture and the company was warm and engaging inside.

Devon celebrated its centennial, so it was fitting that this year the event was moved from The Maidstone Club to Devon. John R. Mackall gave a tutorial on the history of Devon, the Colony, the Club and beyond.

The Devon Colony Estates were built in 1909 as a summer retreat for four wealthy families from Cincinnati. The William Stanhope Rowe House was the largest of the original Devon Colony Houses, called the 7 Sisters. It was built by John Mackall’s great grandfather. Richmond Levering, William Stanhope Rowe, Joseph Rawson and William Cooper Procter were the originators. We all admire their vision and commitment to Amagansett.

Town & Country calls this afternoon our Ladies Who Lunch. We enjoyed a beautiful array of delicious foods prepared by the chefs at Devon.

Happy Anniversary to a very special place with a very special history. Devon and The LVIS forever together.

Judi honored at Manhattan Media’s Privet Hedge Awards Dinner

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Judi Desiderio, President and Chief Executive Office of Town & Country Real Estate, was awarded the prestigious award of “Broker’s Broker" at Manhattan Media's Privet Hedge Awards Dinner last night held at Sebonac Golf Club. This was the 2nd annual Privet Hedge Awards which honors excellence in Hamptons real estate. For Judi to be named "Broker’s Broker" is truly a testament to not only her unyielding success in real estate on the East End, but as well her admiration by colleagues and peers. “I was so surprised to receive the “Broker’s Broker” Privet Hedge Award for Excellence in Real Estate. I’m much more comfortable giving the awards, rather than receiving…When I looked around the room I saw many Brokers whom I’ve worked with in my 34 year tenure. So many talented, experienced, smart real estate professionals.. it was truly an honor. Thank you!” stated Judi afterwards.

 

With top producers from every real estate firm in the Hamptons present, the evening was fun-filled, full and enjoyed by all. Special thanks to the Manhattan Media, publisher of Avenue, Avenue on the Beach, Behind The Hedges and Dan’s Papers, for hosting such a special celebration in an equally spectacular venue.

East Hampton Airport Rules Stir Trouble

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

A great debate resulted in East Hampton Town Board approving curfews from 11pm to 7am on ALL flights and 8pm to 9am on “noisy” aircraft. Additionally, the limit of one weekly round trip for each individual aircraft created more controversy. While no one will argue that aircraft traffic has increased dramatically and better air traffic patterns are necessary, homeowners who purchase on or near the main road and rail line will tell you activity around their homes have increased comparatively. It is apparent all forms of transportation are operating at maximum, or close to maximum capacity.

 

A balance between commerce and conservation once again are laid on the table for all to weigh in on. Everyone has an opinion as to that balance, but the decisions are made by those voted into office. These decisions were made, and now the commerce side of the equation believes the town has over stepped its authority. There was just a lawsuit filed in US District Court against the Town of East Hampton to block these restrictions on grounds they violate Federal Aviation Administration guidelines. The suit quotes the 1990 Airport Noise and Capacity Act and the US Constitution’s supremacy and interstate commerce clauses.

 

I believe when we are able to look in the rearview mirror at this one we will have wished we could have worked together to avoid this path to the best resolution.

 

What are your thoughts on the matter? What do you believe the final outcome will be? How much money will this cost tax payers? How many years will we be in litigation?
