The TV anchor might consider adding a new title to his resume: Hamptons house flipper. In the last four weeks, Lauer has been in the news for his Hamptons property transactions a full four times. Shortly after purchasing Richard Gere’s massive Strongheart estate in North Haven, he listed his modest 1,800-square-foot residence in the Southampton community of North Sea for $3.9 million. Then last week Lauer listed yet another Hamptons property — a 25-acre compound with an 8,000-square-foot main house — for $18 million. Now the North Sea cottage is in contract — just two weeks after hitting the market. [Curbed] — Cathaleen Chen
