How we got our start
In 2009 we booked a vacation home for a long weekend in the Hamptons with a group of friends. We found the listing through Craigslist.com, which displayed a picturesque Hampton’s home, complete with high hedges lining the property, a 20x40 in-ground pool, a salt-washed shingle exterior with perfectly manicured grounds and a modern and clean interior that could comfortably accommodate 12 people.
When we arrived at the property, there were no hedges, no pool, and the structure that laid on the property resembled something found in a war-torn village. With our hearts already at our knees, they fell a little further when the “owners” phone number was no longer in service. We got taken, and we vowed to never let that happen to anyone ever again.
