As if that weren’t enough activity, Susan Breitenbach of The Corcoran Group has listed the Lauer’s 25 acre Deerfield Road estate where they hold court in the Hamptons for $18M.

A Moment’s Notice Compass has announced the launch of an international sports and entertainment division, which will focus on the “specialized needs of professional athletes and entertainers.”The brainchild of the firm’s Founder and Executive Chairman Ori Allon, who co-owns Israel’s Hapoel Jerusalem basketball team, the venture Greg Norman & Wife Kiki

Farrell Heads West Hot shot builder Joe Farrell and his wife, Kristen, have stepped into the NYC spec market with their first NYC gut renovation. The power couple only purchased the Penthouse duplex with wraparound
terraces at 510 Park Avenue in January when they paid $4.4M for it. Completion date is November 2016 enacting the same “build it like you mean it” motto in time and quality. Let’s hope that design diva Kristen has put her stylish stamp on the abode. Their listing price? $8.995M. The Farrells will continue to partake in the Gotham lifestyle, however. They still own a three bedroom pied-à-terre in the building, which they bought in 2013.
