Summer Unmasked

Happy MDW! What a great way to kick off summer by remembering those who gave their lives for this great country, and as a reminder to live each day to the fullest -- exactly how we spend the season out here, and now more than ever!

How great is it to be able to actually "see" familiar faces again? And to be able to give a big hug "hello" when we see our friends and family is... Just Wow! We've finally turned the corner back into normalcy. The sun is coming out, the season has officially begun, and the market is HOT! 

The number one question is ... are we still in a seller's market? YES! Although we're seeing inventory levels start to increase (last week saw 48 new listings, up 12% from the previous week), supply is still nowhere close to keeping up with demand, which typically only increases during the season.

Have you heard? I've now officially become Mala Sander+Team at the Corcoran Group. What does this mean? That consistently providing my clients with a high level of service takes a dedicated team of individuals, with the same laser focus on making their real estate dreams come true. 

Meet my incredible team:

As our summer gift to you and to show you our collaborative power -- and individual personalities -- we put together our go-to summer picks for the East End.

So without further ado, we present to you...
