Hamptons Real Estate Queen Lists Own Home With Rival

Can you say "ouch"?

Proving that New York real estate's habit of defying the laws of decorum extends to the Hamptons, superstar agent Dolly Lenz, the vice chairman of Prudential Douglas Elliman, went to Corcoran's Tim Davis to sell her $5.495 million property. It's a co-exclusive with Lenz listed as the other broker.

The $5.45 million home has seven bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms, a pool and a tennis court, as well over 6,000 square feet of living space.

Considering she is a broker extraordinaire at Prudential, where she has moved more than $7 billion in sales -- one newspaper declared her "the highest producer of real estate sales in both the United States and Canada" -- going outside her firm for her own sale is ... interesting.

Lenz's client Dennis Kozlowski, the former TYCO CEO convicted of fraud and grand larceny, gave her the nickname "Jaws." So why didn't she keep this juicy bite of prime real estate within her own firm?
