Stan Ponte | New York, NY
Stan’s New York City is a place of equity, opportunity and resilience. "I first came to New York City in 1989 to attend NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and when I moved into my dormitory on Fifth Avenue and Tenth Street I knew immediately that I was home! During my college years I had the opportunity to explore the museums, restaurants and performing arts in a way that took my breath away having grown up in a small town south of Boston.
Looking back over this thirty-year love affair with the "city that never sleeps" I have seen my life intertwine with the life of the city; through challenging times and the best of times. One thing I know for sure is that there is no other place in the world where a diversity of ideas, interests, industries, arts and a mutual understanding and respect of our fellow New Yorkers can co-exist and thrive together."
Catherine Debackere | The Hamptons, NY
Catherine’s Hamptons is a place of community. A place that invites people looking for a diverse living experience—whether it’s experiencing magnificent coastal beaches, exploring relaxing expanses of farmland, or enjoying art shows in the villages. A longtime East End resident, Catherine and her family are active community participants who enjoy the art and delight that are born from the East End lifestyle. Catherine played an integral role in developing the first on-site Sotheby’s Real Estate Property Showcase at internationally acclaimed Art Hamptons, a three-day annual event attracting over 14,000 art collectors, dealers, celebrities and visitors.
Aroza Sanjana | Brooklyn, NY
Growing up in New York City for Aroza was very Manhattan centric. First venturing into Brooklyn while attending College at Columbia University, she recalled, "I was caught off guard, I unexpectedly discovered endless blocks of beautiful architecture and quieter streets."
She later discovered that people in Brooklyn gave you the impression that everyone knew each other, as friends often stopped each other on the street and chatted with one another, people just smiled as they passed you on the block. Aroza returned to Brooklyn in the early 2000’s and set up her brokerage at the crossroads of Brownstone Brooklyn.
"Whether you like Park Slope, Bed Stuy, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Crown Heights, Boerum Hill, Red Hook, Bay Ridge, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Dumbo, or Brooklyn Heights, they are each a neighborhood of people that have incredible pride in their towns. Each of these towns has its own special algorithm of history, architecture, and community. I am incredibly proud of becoming a small part of the fabric of Brooklyn, its history and its future."
Dalia Valdes | Westchester, NY
Dalia’s Westchester is a place of relaxation. A place where you can fly under the radar, while being provided swift accessibility to New York City. Dalia has lived in the Hudson River Towns her entire life, raised three children and two dogs here, and cannot imagine it any other way. The River Towns consist of many villages along the eastern banks of the Hudson.
To Dalia, the River Towns are one big neighborhood, and she thrives in representing her hometown. Dalia appreciates her hometown’s diverse landscape, from lush hills to river enjoyments. From co-ops, to condos, to waterfront townhouses, the River Towns offer an endless variety of home styles. Restaurants here give NYC restaurants quite the run for their money, too.

The communities I cover are amongst the most desirable suburbs surrounding New York City. Each has its own character and amenities. All have excellent school systems.

The Rye YMCA, Recreation Center and Library feature a diverse array of programs for children and adults.
Rye Neck, a part of Rye City, offers all the amenities of Rye and has its own school system. Purchase and Harrison proper offer the International Baccalaureate Program which is especially appealing to foreigners who may be here temporarily and whose children will be going back to schools in their native countries.

Bonnie Williamson | Huntington, NY
“I never thought that I would grow up and return to the town where I was raised. When you start “at the best” it is hard to find anything better! I live and cover the wonderful Township of Huntington which encompasses 9 different zip codes and towns and Incorporated Villages across the North Shore of Long Island with a population of over 200,000. The proximity to Manhattan and to the beaches, Bays and Harbors help to maintain a high real estate value. A New England charm is present in the former whaling villages that were created when Huntington was founded in 1653 and lobsters, clams and oysters are still harvested in the Bays and several harbors that are part of the geography of this popular area.
People love the proximity to New York City but also the beaches, golf courses, equestrian facilities and hiking trails and the abundance of programs that are offered by the YMCA and the many sports leagues that help to burn off all the energy of our active athletic youth.
Huntington is one of the most “searched” towns on the internet on Long Island, popular for all that it has to offer. Having grown up here and then having returned to raise my children, it has given me an extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods and all that this waterfront community provides. I would love to introduce you to my hometown!”
