Marcia Altman, a licensed associate broker for 25 years, represents some of the most unique and spectacular properties in the Hamptons. As the top producing broker in the Quogue/Westhampton/Remsenburg market at Brown Harris Stevens for many years, Marcia displays a keen inside knowledge of the industry and an enthusiasm for her clients. This wealth of experience has enabled Marcia to advise her clients in their pursuit of both pleasure and profit in the Hamptons market. Her record breaking sales and creative marketing have placed her at the top of her profession. With a knack for anticipating buyers' needs, her ability to match buyers to homes or land is also well respected among her associates and competitors. Born in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, Marcia attended Parsons School of Design which accounts for her stylish aesthetic. She has appeared on Open House NYC, NBC's Hampton Open Houses, Fox 5 News and News 12 Long Island, has been featured in Top Agent Magazine's National edition. She has been interviewed & quoted in The New York Times, Hamptons Magazine, and most local publications as a key authority on market trends in the Hamptons. In addition, Marcia recently appeared on CNN & CNBC, in the same capacity. A full time resident of Quogue, Marcia is a member of the new Quogue Club, a founding member of the Hampton Synagogue, and has her name stamped in perpetuity on the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts' "Walk of Fame. Her husband Barry Altman of the Builder Inc. and Quality Crafted Homes of Southampton, is a prolific developer and builder. This relationship enhances Marcia's knowledge of construction and renovation and is a valuable asset to both her buyers and sellers. Traveling extensively and owning design and retail businesses in New York, Paris & St. Tropez has given her a sense of the "bigger picture." "I am my client, as we frequent the same travel spots, shop the same designers and dine at the same restaurants....so the connection is comfortable and natural." After years of watching the market fluctuate, Marcia knows that real estate has outperformed the stock market over the long term, and is the best investment one can make. "I look forward to meeting new people and helping them make a sound investment in their future with a home in the Hamptons to enjoy that which will increase their net worth. I'm always available by office, cell phone, text or e-mail and enjoy the chase as well as the results."
At the 2018 BHS Annual Meeting (February 5, 2019), Marcia was the recipient of the first ever Lifetime Achievement Award.
