Dou­glas El­li­man’s Michaela Kes­zler is the in­sider who came from (far) away.

Orig­i­nally from Ger­many, Michaela Kes­zler, a se­nior as­so­ciate bro­ker at Dou­glas El­li­man Real Es­tate, was so en­am­ored with the Hamptons af­ter her first visit, in 1992, she bought a home here. She tells us all about living as a local in Southampton Vil­lage.

What’s the best place in Southampton for cof­fee? “The Vil­lage Cheese Shop (105 Love Lane, Mat­ti­tuck, 631-298-8556; thevil­lagecheese­shop.com). Peo­ple meet and chat in the morn­ing—it’s a cool place for grab­bing your first cof­fee, to go over the plan for the day.” What about din­ner? “It’s beau­ti­ful to sit in the gar­den at Tutto il Giorno (56 Nu­gent St., Southampton, 631-377-3611; tut­toil­giorno.com). They have great fish and the best cho­co­late pud­ding. And Sant Am­broeus (30 Main St., Southampton, 631-283-1233; san­tam­broeus.com) is al­ways nice. I love their sand­wiches.” Where do you relax? “I love Little Plains Beach (543 Little Plains Road, Southampton). It’s an ocean beach close to where I live. There aren’t a lot of beaches in the world that are so beau­ti­ful! That’s what fas­ci­nated me about this place from the be­gin­ning: the wide, nice beaches. And they’re not over­crowded.” How has work­ing in real es­tate given you an in­sider’s view? “You have to be aware of ev­ery trait in your area. You take some­one out in a car, you’d bet­ter know an an­swer to ev­ery­thing when you drive them around. New York­ers are real-es­tate savvy. You have to be on the pulse of ev­ery­thing.” 70 Jobs Lane, Southampton, 631204-2743; el­li­man.com
