The suburban single-family home that first designated the region as prime for young families in the 1940s has evolved to meet our changing demographics and increasingly affluent clientele.

That alone is an exclusive dexterity—but only the cream of the crop can buy and sell homes on behalf of the wealthy and powerful who choose to call Long Island home. These transactions combine high-priced dealings with even higher buyer/seller expectations, an arena where only the truly talented thrive. Take a look inside their guarded playbook. These insights are enough to land your next buying or selling experience on the A-list.
