From the July issue: This month, East Hampton real estate broker Barbara Feldman will launch HamptonsBrokerMatchup.com, an online referral service designed to match buyers and sellers with brokers.

In that time, she said, she noticed that buyers in the area have an especially hard time finding the right broker, given the wide variety of different price ranges and property types in the Hamptons.
