    Judie Desiderio started Town & Country Real Estate, which bills itself as the largest, most comprehensive locally owned and operated, independent real estate agency on Long Island's East End. It certainly has the numbers on its side.

    The brokerage dates from the early 1980s, when Desiderio launched Town & Country in partnership with the international Town & Country brand. She has led it since the beginning.

    The firm now has offices in 32 towns and cities in the East End, including its headquarters in East Hampton, and around 150 brokers.

It had $352 million in listings as of June 1, 2015, making it the seventh-largest brokerage in the East End.

    While Town & Country had more new agents than any other firm on the list, its CEO said the company is "not aggressively recruiting. It's more a function of whether it is a good fit," said Judi Desiderio, who founded the firm in 2007...

    Last month Tahari bought 54 Main Street, owned and occupied by the now-defunct Harold Shepherd Real Estate, for $4.7 million, said Barbara Weinman, the broker that handled the sale. The same day he also purchased, for $2 million, the 1,700-square-foot space behind the Main Street building, at 53 The Circle.
