This boutique agency’s staff believes that clients wish to say goodbye to the large corporations and their franchises that have dominated the East End real estate market, in favor of a localized, individual approach to each property, down to the last detail.

The agents combine over 40 years of experience on their native North Fork, and know that word of mouth — living, shopping and dining in the community where they work — in combination with all forms of social networking and multiple listing services on highly traveled websites give their team a deeper knowledge of the area and provide an advantage for getting the job done.

NFREinc. also offers home staging and interior design plus property and marine maintenance, and finds unique venues for outdoor advertising to showcase properties — such as Sep’s iconic farm stand, perfectly placed on the way to/from the ferry at Orient, and lighted outdoor kiosks at New York City locations that are carefully selected, Ms. Rishe says, “to get your home the attention it deserves.”

The NFREinc. mission: “We will never compromise our integrity. We will continue to let our honest and ethical reputation prevail over financial reward.”

The NFREinc. office is open 7 days a week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Its website is
