Hamptons season is in session as residential brokers descend on the East End, hungry for business. This month, The Real Deal switched up its annual survey of the largest Hamptons brokerages by evaluating firms by dollar volume of listings.

In its cover story now available online, the tally covered only exclusive and co-exclusive single-family home listings. The Corcoran Group landed in the top spot with $2.4 billion in active listings.

Then, in a series of stories, we take an in-depth look at EB-5, a popular funding program that is now at a crossroads. With Chinese investors forced to wait for visas, other countries such as Vietnam and Brazil are stepping into the fray.

Meanwhile, Glenwood Management’s 100-year-old founder Leonard Litwin is at the center of a scandal, but does he even know about it?

Next, as the price per square foot for Brooklyn condo developments climbs, we break down the top projects such as Alloy Development’s 1 John Street and Toll Brothers City Living and Starwood Capital Group’s Pierhouse.

Finally, in our Closing interview, townhouse guru Jed Garfield talks about his plan to join the CIA and ski-bumming in Colorado.
