On the East End since 1995, starting with the legendary Allan Schneider Associates, now The Corcoran Group, Gary DePersia has participated in more than a billion and a half dollars of real estate transactions. With hundreds of his exclusive listings sold and closed, and hundreds more properties matched with his own buyers and renters, his sensational inventory of Hamptons luxury real estate has generated benchmark deals.
Gary was the listing broker on the highest priced land sale in Bridgehampton South ($37.5M in 2007); the listing broker on the highest priced residential sale north of the highway in East Hampton ($12.5M in 2009); and the selling broker for the most expensive single family residence sale north of the highway and off the water in the Hamptons ($20M+ in 2005). Gary was also the listing and selling broker for the 55-acre waterfront oasis Tyndal Point in Sag Harbor’s North Haven. At $36 million, it was the highest price residential sale ever north of the highway, plus the largest transaction for 2011, on the East End.
Consistently ranked among the top producers in the Hamptons for the last dozen years, and a year-on-year member of The Corcoran Group President’s Council, in 2008 he was Corcoran’s top broker on the East End by sales volume and rental units. Gary was also ranked as the nation’s 4th top broker by sales volume with over $202 million worth of transactions in The Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends 2008 list of Top 250 real estate professionals. Qualifying as a national list maker since 2007, in 2013 he was again in the top tier with nearly $200M in real estate transactions.
Gary realized early on the importance of deep local knowledge and the benefits of expert marketing other brokers have come to follow and emulate.
Knowing each buyer or renter has their own idea of what and where their Hamptons experience should be, he is well-versed on the inventory of each village and hamlet. His office operates with four licensed assistants allowing him to build a business stretching from Southampton to Montauk and Sagaponack to Shelter Island. Gary is as comfortable assisting renters to find a modest summer cottage as he is showing off one of his spectacular multi-million dollar listings. His deep experience, affable nature and energized style make him a favorite of NYC and out of area brokers who want to refer their clients to a knowledgeable Hamptons realtor who truly cares about client service.
A strong believer in rewarding the confidence of those who have listed their properties with him, Gary is the East End’s most prolific advertiser. His exclusive listings are found regularly print and online in local, national, and international media. A role model in the use of cutting-edge marketing tools, he was the first Hamptons broker with his own personal website myhamptonhomes.com and broad use of social media.
An intrinsic and inimitable ambassador for Hamptons luxury real estate, Gary has regularly guided television viewers around the area’s finest homes appearing on NBC TV Open House NYC, CBS TV Living Large and Plum TV in the Hamptons and Aspen. He is also tapped by top news media for his expert market views and exceptional listings.
Rare but quality downtime includes skiing in Aspen or heli-skiing the Selkirk-Monashee Mountains in British Columbia; windsurfing the waters of the Hamptons or St. Thomas, where he has a home overlooking Great Bay and St. Johns.
