Ed Brody has a deep connection to Long Island as he was part of his family’s three generation business in Patchogue. It was growing up near the beaches of Fire Island where his family would spend summers that gave him an appreciation of just how special and captivating the ocean’s calling can have on one’s psyche. Coupled with his college background from the University of Bridgeport in Business Administration, it was his personal experience of guiding the family business through the good and bad years that taught Ed more about the finesse of working with customers from all types of backgrounds, each with special needs and desires, but with the end goal of making a personal connection.
In 1992, Ed moved to East Hampton as the next natural progression to live closer to the ocean and to start his second career in Real Estate where he quickly earned the reputation of being a confidante to sellers and buyers. It was his honed ability to pair people and property yet his open and honest personality that kept repeat business coming back. Together with his partner and licensed sales associate Jeff Santonastasi, Ed started investing in real estate. With this investments, they improved numerous properties over the years which further strengthened his knowledge of the business to share with clients on how they, too could best capitalize on the market and enjoy all that the Hamptons have to offer. Now the team of Ed and Jeff can council sellers on the finer points of preparing their home for sale in terms of price and visual appeal while allowing buyers an insight into the potential of a property both as an investment and as a home.
When not on a job site or with customers, Ed enjoys cooking for friends at home, enjoying the local restaurants, car collecting, and spending time with his pug Colby and a vacation home in West Palm Beach.
