ROCKAWAYS — Lisa Jackson, owner of Rockaway Properties, moved to Carroll Gardens in late 2012 after Sandy walloped her Queens neighborhood, planning to switch gears and restart her business selling homes in Downtown Brooklyn instead.
But two months after relocating, her phone started ringing with inquiries about sales for oceanfront property in the Rockaways.
She's now back in Queens — and is busier than ever.
"I closed over 30 homes after the storm and have another 20 under contract," Jackson said.
MANHATTAN — Finding a three-bedroom apartment is no easy feat for many New York City families — which is why many new developments now opening or underway include sprawling floor plans.
Supply in older housing stock is tight, but demand is certainly there: Some 42 percent of Brooklyn's third-quarter sales in new developments were for three-bedroom units, according to a market report released Thursday by MNS.
