Top Agent: Mark Baron

Q: What’s new out East?
My favorite health food store, Provisions, has just expanded to their second location in Water Mill. We really do have the best food, yoga, and beaches here on the East End. A truly awesome lifestyle.

Q: How do you feel about the real estate market right now?
As always, the Hamptons offers great investment opportunities. Buyers are definitely taking advantage of these and the last six weeks have seen an uptick in the higher end of the market. This year’s fourth quarter will be our strongest.

Q: What do you love about real estate sales and what kind of unique services do you offer?
I love bringing the deal to fruition! The feeling of achievement, both in creating a meeting of the minds and especially closing the deal. Not to mention Hamptons homes are spectacular and located in the most beautiful settings in the world—I feel very blessed to live and work here. Saunders & Associates brings a unique approach to dealing with our clients, a concierge service that remains unsurpassed. When we mobilize behind our buyers and sellers, we really are a “higher form of realty.”

Q: Tell us about the core areas in the Hamptons and the neighborhoods that are gaining popularity.
Water sports continue to be a favorite among my clients—from yachting to surfing—so waterfront real estate is always in high demand. Sag Harbor, with its beautiful marinas and waterways, is definitely a vacation favorite.

Q: Anything else you’d like to share?
If you are looking for a spectacular modern home, Hamptons top developer Farrell Building Company has a new construction due for completion next summer. It definitely has the “wow” factor and has ocean views in an A+ location—65 Sandpiper Lane in Bridgehampton.
