From industrial parks to office buildings, and retail centers to land waiting for the right development, we work with you anywhere.
Jeff, a lifelong resident of East Hampton, brought his financial background and Manhattan commercial real estate experience to the Hamptons in 2014. For years Jeff was a successful residential agent on the East End focusing on construction and development projects. In a short period of time he was able to complete some record breaking transactions as both an agent and an investor.
With a constantly expanding network, Jeff shifted his focus to the commercial market in 2019. After beginning work in this field closely with Hal Zwick as his mentor, the Hamptons Commercial Real Estate team has continued to increase its reach with record breaking transactions in the last two years. A key advantage of his approach is identifying creative uses for commercial properties and bringing diverse entities into a project to help finance, build and realize its full potential. Jeff has a special focus on industrial properties, self-storage sites, mixed use/ multi-family, marinas, and resorts. At this stage, Jeff manages all different asset classes in the commercial marketplace from Westhampton to Montauk along with the North Fork.
Working tirelessly for buyers and sellers, Jeff understands the urgency, privacy and importance of representing an essential portion of a client’s investment portfolio. Jeff modifies the approach for each listing while working with interior designers, high tech photographers, and architects to offer a tailored program. The Compass technology has broadened his marketing approach to reach clients around the world and offer the most cutting-edge services to stay in touch with the team’s active clients.
A graduate of Trinity College in Connecticut, Jeff studied economics and Hispanic studies. An avid surfer, who has practiced and instructed the sport for years, Jeff is very active in the community and an advocate for conserving the nature of the East End. He also enjoys golfing, fishing, hiking, hunting and traveling the world to pursue these passions. Jeff is also a member of the volunteer ocean rescue and looks forward to getting further involved in the local community.
Hal is a born and bred New Yorker. He worked in the advertising and marketing field for 18 years in Manhattan prior to moving out to the East End in 1998 to enjoy life at a different pace. Never one to just sit still, he became extremely active in the Hampton’s business community through the purchase, operation and sale of several businesses and commercial properties including Book Hampton, The Snowflake, and The Paradise Restaurant.
Hal evolved his professional career into a consultant for both potential buyers and sellers of businesses and commercial real estate. His experience can help individuals navigate the often-confusing aspects of doing business in this unique locale. Hal’s services include analysis of financial records, pricing of businesses and buildings, marketing of the entities, and consulting to buyers and sellers during the important transition period just before and after the closing. Importantly, he respects the confidential nature of the sellers intent and information as he guides them through the process.
Hal has become the “go-to” professional for Commercial Activity on the East End. With over 300 specialized transactions, customers and clients alike rely on him for his honesty, knowledge and integrity and most important confidentiality. He is always available for guidance to landlords, business owners and investors — when people are in the initial phase of decision making and long after the transaction is complete. A true professional!
Hal resides in lives in East Hampton with his son, two dogs and two cats, and he takes advantage of all the activities the area has to offer. He involves himself in local issues throughout the communities and is often sought after for consultation on matters pertaining to the business environment on the East End.
