Hamptons Power Broker Gary DePersia

Gary DePersia’s name has become synonymous with the best in Hamptons real estate. From Southampton to Montauk and from Sagaponack to Shelter Island, Gary has participated in over  $2 billion of real estate transactions since 1995. With hundreds of his exclusive listings sold and closed, as well as matching hundreds of his own buyers and renters with the right properties, Gary’s more than 22 years in Hamptons luxury real estate has generated benchmark sales. You may have heard people refer to him in real estate circles as the “go-to man.”

Consistently ranked among the top producers in the Hamptons, and a year-on-year member of The Corcoran Group President’s Council, Gary has qualified as a national list name since 2007. In 2008, he was Corcoran’s top broker on the East End by sales volume and rental units, and ranked as the nation’s No. 4 top broker. In the 2017 REAL Trends and the Wall Street Journal list of America’s top real estate professionals, he was designated No. 26 nationally, No. 4 in the Hamptons, and No. 3 at Corcoran overall by volume, with nearly $200 million of transactions for the past year. 

Gary realized early on the importance of deep local knowledge and the benefits of expert marketing, which other brokers have come to emulate. Knowing each buyer or renter has his or her own idea of what defines a personal Hamptons experience, he is well versed on the inventory of each village and hamlet on the East End. 

To whet your appetite, take a look at two of his exquisite listings. 

This inviting two-bedroom, two-bath retreat with a dock, poised on 1.3 acres along 300 feet of Peconic Bay, was completely renovated several years ago. The 2,000-square-foot traditional on two floors of living space features a sensible floor plan with water views from every room. The home is centered around the large living room with fireplace and doors that lead to the expansive deck overlooking the water. Breakfast, lunch, and dinners are prepared in the updated, fully equipped, eat-in kitchen with adjacent laundry room. A separate den/media room leads to the new master bedroom suite on the far end of the house. A separate guest bedroom with adjacent sleep loft accessed by its own staircase is serviced by a separate full bath. Outside water vistas abound from an expansive deck furnished with both an umbrella-covered table and comfortable lounging chairs. Verdant lawn runs down to the completely rebuilt dock (equipped with water and electricity), which will provide safe haven for a boat up to almost 30 feet. Head over to Sunset Beach on Shelter Island for Sunday cocktails or to Sag Harbor for dinner, both so close. But on clear evenings eat early as you might want to get back for some of the most beautiful sunsets anywhere, as the sun seems to disappear over the North Fork somewhere into Long Island Sound, leaving the horizon a purplish haze. 

A whole new price informs oceanfront excellence along Quogue’s coveted Dune Road, which is available for one fortunate buyer. This superb traditional on 3.25 acres offers tennis and a dock on the bay. Custom built in 2010 for exacting owners, the sprawling 13,000-square-foot, nine-bedroom seaside residence has been professionally decorated, providing for seamless entertaining. The grand two-story paneled entry leads to the stunning formal living room as well as the professional, fully equipped eat-in kitchen with adjacent family room. A unique, glass-front, temperature controlled wine room is accessed from the formal dining room, offering a beautiful aesthetic during meals. A sumptuous wood-paneled office with fireplace and wet bar provides a quiet space to get some work done in between tennis matches played on the full-sized, all-weather north/south tennis court. Upstairs the master wing offers a sumptuous sleeping chamber with fireplace, his and her baths and closets, sitting room, and an expansive private deck with fireplace that looks out at both the ocean and bay. Eight additional bedroom suites, including two on the first floor, await lucky weekend guests. Covered and uncovered patios look out to the 60-foot heated Gunite pool with spa, and is serviced by cabana with fireplace. An outdoor summer kitchen with brick oven and ample patio space provide the perfect venue for al fresco dining. The state-of-the-art home is Crestron controlled, offering automatic shades and a whole house generator. A private walkway leads to the pristine ocean beach, past a sea of manicured lawn, while a gated entry and extensive landscaping by Edmund D. Hollander Design ensures privacy. Surf the ocean in the morning when the waves beckon, kite board in the afternoon when the southwest thermals prevail or just relax at your own private beach with nearby lifeguard facilities. A dedicated dock across the street can accommodate up to five boats. Sunrises and sunsets along with an endless summer of beach and boating can be yours each and every day with this incredible seaside estate.
