Latest Long Island Real Estate Merger shows potential to scale up Fire Island realty scene to newer heights

Born out of a major merger, Luxury Fire Island Homes is a newly rebranded real estate company on Fire Island that aims to provide world-class second-mile assistance in luxury sales, rental, and property management services. 

Ocean Beach, NY – August 26, 2021 – A heavyweight merger between two leading residential real estate teams is creating a lot of buzz in the Long Island real estate scene this month. Long Island-based The Real McCoy Team – Your Home Sold Guaranteed and Fire Island-based Fire Island Homes have recently merged and rebranded the new entity as “Luxury Fire Island Homes”. The newly rebranded real estate company aims to provide expert assistance in luxury sales, rental, and property management services for Fire Island homeowners.

The merger and rebranding was made official on August 9, 2021.  

Luxury Fire Island Homes is currently owned by mother-daughter duo Sydney McCoy and Susan McCoy, the owners of The Real McCoy Team- Your Home Sold Guaranteed. The McCoy’s are also fellow homeowners on Fire Island and they have always wanted to impact lives on the island on a mass scale through their business.  

Brian and Laura Smith, the former owners of Fire Island Homes, presently hold the designation of VIP Buyer and Seller Agents for Luxury Fire Island Homes. Tyler Smith, the son of Brian and Laura Smith, is also a VIP Buyer and Seller agent with the newly rebranded luxury real estate sales company.  

Interestingly, the recent merger marks a landmark event especially in the Fire Island realty scene, which, historically is slow to change; the dynamic family duo brings in a whopping 70+ years of combined experience in real estate which would be instrumental in scaling up the local property market to newer heights in the near future. 

In an exclusive interview, Sydney McCoy, the co-owner of Luxury Fire Island Homes, shared that they have plans to completely innovate the Fire Island real estate market with a fresh perspective on selling, buying, and renting real estate.  

Sydney doesn’t even like to refer to them as a real estate company.  

In her own words, “We aren’t a real estate company; rather, we are a marketing company. When agents attempt to sell a home, they put low-quality photos on Multiple Listing Services (a real estate database that circulates homes on websites such as Zillow) and wait for buyers to reach out to them. In my opinion, anyone can do this. If you’re going to hire a realtor, hire someone who has years of digital marketing experience – this is how you sell a home for Top Dollar.”  

“What keeps us ahead of the curve is that, unlike most realtors, we go above and beyond by investing thousands of our own dollars into marketing their home. We have had great success doing this on the mainland, and we are putting the same systems in place to do it on Fire Island too. It’s time we bring Fire Island Real Estate to the 21st century.” 

Speaking on, Sydney stressed that they are combining their local expertise along with unparalleled marketing tactics to bring in industry-leading second-mile service to the Fire Island real estate scene! 

“At Luxury Fire Island Homes, we aim to be the #1 real estate resource in Fire Island. We are always going the extra mile for the comfort and satisfaction of our clients, through our unique programs such as: Guaranteed Sale Program, Cash Offer Program, VIP Buyer Program and our Love it or Leave it Program”, noted Sydney. 

“Our VIP Buyer Program is my favorite! All of our VIP clients get access to homes before they even hit the market. With priority access to off-market homes, they can avoid bidding wars with other buyers. Our team has long-standing relationships in Fire Island. We are always the first to know when a homeowner is interested in selling their home. This is why buyers love working with us.”  

The McCoy’s also have plans to bid adieu to the traditional admin-heavy process and introduce a more luxurious renting experience to both renters and homeowners through high-tech infrastructure. To elevate their client’s experience, the company is doing away with conventional pen, paper, and checks, and is all geared up to create a modern tech-backed operational system.  

“One of our new technology platforms will help streamline the process of renting homes on Fire Island”, Sydney revealed to us while discussing their technology plans.  

The existing rental process in the Fire Island realty scene is disorganized and outdated. Most agents are calling homeowners every day to determine if their home is still available to rent, which can be quite cumbersome and frustrating for homeowners and agents. Also, potential renters have no way of booking properties online. They must call an agent to determine what may be available, then the agent sends a handwritten lease, and then the client has to send checks via snail mail to secure their rental. Luxury Fire Island Homes aims to change this daunting rental process with an advanced tech-backed outlook.  

“You’ll have a personalized Airbnb-like booking experience with Luxury Fire Island Homes. Not only will you have an easy-to-use platform to book your Fire Island rental, but you will also receive 5-Star support from our Fire Island agents, who have lived on the island for most of their lives. We will continue to vet every single family that is renting from one of our homeowners – that’s all part of our second-mile service!” 

What’s special about the merger is that it brings the best of both worlds to the Fire Island real estate scene. On one hand, The McCoy’s come with cutting-edge expertise in technology and marketing. Most importantly, they guarantee the sale of homes. On the other hand, Brian and Laura Smith are locals; they live on the island year-round and hold over 60 years of combined experience in Fire Island real estate. One of the most renowned realtors in the area, the Smiths boast an unrivaled in-depth knowledge of the beautiful beach town and a thorough understanding of the ins and outs of the island and the local real estate. The milieu of the best of both worlds is expected to scale up the Fire Island real estate scene to greater heights in near future. 

Luxury Fire Island Homes is driven by the ethos of giving back to the community. The company is committed to donating a portion of its income to causes that impact the Fire Island community.  

“We are an extremely mission-driven company. I truly believe we are here to give back to all the communities we operate in. The bigger our business grows, the more we can donate to the community. That’s what life is all about.”  

“We are looking to help the community in every way we can – please don’t be a stranger! Let us know how we can help!”
