Hamptons Front in the Broker War?

On this dark and chilly New York City spring day, New York mag's Intelligencer column turns our thoughts to South Fork strolls on the beach with a Hamptons brokerage war item that asks, "Is Corcoran staging a retreat from the East End?" The evidence offered includes the "consolidation" of two of Corcoran's Sag Harbor offices, and a reported meeting by rival Prudential Douglas Elliman's CEO with 16 Corcoran East End brokers who were looking for jobs. Corcoran's CEO chalks it all up to a misunderstanding and says some brokers are "going virtual." The item is all the more interesting, of course, in light of a recent story plugging the idea of a hot rental East End rental market this summer and sluggish residential sales.
