Southampton, Getting Fairly Popular

To bravely counter the new Corcoran/ NRT/ Allan M. Schnieder monster, Michael Daly and his wife Barbara are opening a RE/MAX Beach Properties on Southampton’s Country Road.

Update: We wrote that Mr. Daly sells $1.2 million a year in the Hamptons. Instead, that number refers to the region’s average sales price. Pardon us.

More press release excitement after the jump.

RE/MAX BEACH PROPERTIES
TO OPEN IN SOUTHAMPTON

August, 14 2006, Southampton, New York – RE/MAX of New York, Inc. is pleased to announce that RE/MAX Beach Properties will soon open at 241 County Road 39A in Southampton, NY, at the intersection of North Main Street, and will provide comprehensive real estate services for properties in the Hamptons on the South Fork of Long Island. Broker Michael Daly and his wife, Barbara, will operate the office under the RE/MAX Renowned Properties flag, which is used to market high-end homes. With an average sales price of over $1.2 million in the Hamptons, Mr. Daly believes that the Renowned Properties marketing program will serve the agents that join the new brokerage well.

“This is a very competitive market”, says Mr. Daly. “Once agents and brokers realize that they can keep 95 percent of their commissions, be in control of their own business and be part of the worldwide referral network, I believe they’ll be very interested in the opportunities we offer. We are very excited about this market; the consumers in this region are highly sophisticated, well-educated, world-traveled and are familiar with the RE/MAX Renowned Properties brand. RE/MAX conducts business in 64 countries; this gives us the power to provide high-end customers worldwide exposure when marketing their properties.”

Daly spent 20 years as a hospitality industry executive before joining Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate in 1998. He became a top-selling agent, then managing director with the company and went on to serve as a senior executive at NRT before starting True North Realty Associates, which will be doing business as RE/MAX Beach Properties. Barbara Daly is a licensed real estate agent who previously spent 20 years as an executive in the health insurance industry.

“In my travels around the world I have seen RE/MAX real estate signs on magnificent, high-end properties. RE/MAX has an outstanding reputation, and I am proud to be the one to bring this excellent company to the Hamptons. I have also been impressed by the caliber and experience of the RE/MAX brokers and agents that I have met overseas and here in New York. Our brokerage will be specializing in residential real estate, and will focus on the second home and resort sales markets. No matter what market you’re in, RE/MAX renders outstanding service, and that’s what our business is built on,” said Mr. Daly.

“RE/MAX Beach Properties will be opening in one of the hottest markets in the country. Michael is building a strong team, and we expect he will be able to capture significant market share in a short period of time,” said Henry Weber, President and Regional Director of RE/MAX of New York, Inc.
