Dream homes come in all shapes and sizes, especially here on Long Island, where Sara Feldman and Rozana Zemlyansky of the V.I. Properties Team at Compass Real Estate have worked with as many types of clients as they have sold styles of homes. Even in this current climate where inventory is so low and moving so quickly, Zemlyansky says, that “the demand can’t keep up with it,” buyers are still going to have particulars in mind as they envision the home of their dreams.
As for Feldman and Zemlyansky themselves, they of course have some ideas of their own when it comes to defining their dream listing…

Feldman: My dream listing would be a seller who takes pride in their home, who maintains their home, who’s open to suggestion and who understands the market.
Zemlyansky: Working with somebody who takes pride in their home, you feel that energy. And somebody who will do what we call risk-reduction protocols, doing everything preemptively so there are no surprises at the end. Like doing an inspection, and if there’s a problem, they’ll take care of it so they don’t need to renegotiate later on. And somebody who trusts us when we bring you an offer—I’m a big believer that your first offer is probably your best one.
