A good real estate agent—a really good one—is much more than a sharp dresser with a lockbox code and a winning smile. The best real estate agents are trusted collaborators during one of life’s biggest undertakings, and their advice to homebuyers, whether they’re discussing down payments or deadbolt locks, is almost always worth heeding. To that end, Corcoran is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Amazon.com, through which recommendations vetted with input by Corcoran agents, clients and team members are curated into ever-evolving lists of smart products all aimed at improving the style, security, space efficiency, and energy consciousness of your home—whether it’s a walk-up in Williamsburg, a mansion in Montauk, or a bungalow in Boca.
Among our favorite picks this week: Moroccan Flair’s gorgeous handmade leather pouf, Nest’s Alexa-ready third-generation learning thermostat, and, for those in an East End state of mind, author Michael Shnayerson’s essential coffee-table volume, The Big Book of the Hamptons.
Be sure to check back regularly: Each month we’ll offer a new list of Corcoran-curated must-haves.
