Meet Fitness Star to Watch Grace Freyre
Grace, tell us about your workout method!
My method is “Barre Sculpt.” It combines traditional barre, a workout inspired by elements of ballet with modern sculpt, which focuses on functional training movements. We use light weights, as well as your own body weight as resistance.
How do you work with clients?
I work with clients in two ways: one-on-one privates and group sessions! From Hamptons bachelorettes to NYC group parties, or with friends who want to sweat together! You can also find me on Tuesday and Wednesday nights at KKSWEAT in NYC.
How can people book a class with you?
For a private or group class, DM me on Instagram at @gracefreyrefit or e-mail email@example.com. For KKSWEAT classes, go to kksweat.com.
A MOMENT WITH MARK GREENWALD OF SAUNDERS & ASSOCIATES
Mark, you’re based in Southampton. What makes Southampton so special?
Southampton is my home; it is such a special place. Driving through the Village with all its charm, turning onto the specimen tree–canopied streets of the estate section and arriving at the beautiful shoreline is truly a joy every day. I never take it for granted. The history and journey of Southampton from a thriving 19th-century resort to the place we live in today is amazing.
How do you work with your clients?
Whether a customer is looking for a $30 million home or a million-dollar cottage, the most important thing I can do is listen. When you have extensive market knowledge, if you hear what is important to your customers, you know you will find the perfect match. And it’s the same with my sellers.
What makes Southampton not only a wonderful summer destination, but year-round, too?
I bought my home in the Hamptons when I was still working as a real estate attorney at a New York City law firm and wanted a better balance with a hectic urban lifestyle. The more time that I spent here, the more I realized that this was the healthy, happy life I wanted to lead and decided to move here full-time and raise a family here. Connecting to the beauty of the changing seasons, enjoying local restaurants and holiday traditions in Southampton Village are just a few of the reasons this is a thriving year-round community.
What’s something clients can expect when working with you?
My background as a lawyer instilled a professional way of working, which I translate into every part of my day. I find my skill set of professional, thorough, and diligent work are a definite benefit.

Tell us about your background!
I was born in Buenos Aires with Italian heritage. I moved to Florida as a teen and graduated from the Miami International University of Art and Designs and continued my studies at the Institute of Maragoni in Milan, Italy. I worked in the field as an assistant stylist to Antonio Bordonaro and Brana Wolf and afterward secured a job at Jill Stuart for five years. I also worked for various international European and Asian houses as creative consultant.
Many know you from your presence in Palm Beach. Why did you want to activate in the Hamptons this summer?
A couple of years ago when the entire world took a break due to a worldwide pandemic, many of us in this industry were holding capital undelivered inventory. I personally rolled up my sleeves and drove out to the East End to scout for a summer location and landed in the beautiful town of Sag Harbor. The motivation started right there to think out of the box and to find other locations. I become this entrepreneur that follows the seasons, follows the sun, and follows my clients.
Plans for Palm Beach next season?
We’re thrilled to announce our new location, which will open October 15, 2023, on Via Bice, Palm Beach, featuring our new creations of Holiday and Resort 2024. We look forward to seeing you all there!

AT HOME WITH TIM DAVIS
Tim, how’s your summer been so far?
We’ve been busy closing some pre-season deals we put into contract these past few months. The weather appears to have turned in our favor, and I’m mixing business with pleasure.
What’s the buyer’s market like right now?
We continue to have a strong buyer pool and limited inventory. We have brought on several special properties however, and we’re seeing good immediate response.
Any properties you’re particularly excited about right now?
The largest available oceanfront land and a couple of quiet waterfront listings seem to be on the radar at the moment. A beautiful shingle-style in the estate section on 3.4 acres is also getting some strong attention.
It’s our entertainment issue. What are your favorite TV shows these days?
It’s not necessarily on TV, though I am binge-watching six seasons of Yellowstone. The best entertainment is on the streets of our villages. Loving the people-watching.
Where are your favorite destinations to indulge in entertainment Out East?
I’m not an out-late kind of person; therefore, the lunch experiences with DJ or live music like Duryea’s in Orient, Sunset Beach on Shelter Island, or Wölffer Estate Vineyard are quite appealing.
