Named by Hamptons Magazine to the 2017 A-List of the “Hampton’s Most Influential Young People,” Michael C. Dougherty was born and raised in Southampton. He attended area private schools and spent time at Rollins College in Florida before receiving his bachelor’s degree from The New School in Manhattan.
Michael’s family has been involved in real estate brokerage and hospitality businesses on the East End for over 50 years, giving him an innate interest in East End real estate and eventually inspiring him to enter the field. Michael’s expertise in real estate focuses on surveying and researching new listings, particularly waterfront and estate listings. As an East End native Michael can draw on an excellent network of contacts to procure desirable listings while working diligently for his clients.
In addition to real estate, Michael is an accomplished filmmaker. He wrote and produced a feature film, “Love & Everything in Between”, which was shot in various locations throughout the Hamptons. The film is currently available for rent or purchase on Amazon Prime Video.
Michael currently owns a waterfront home in Southampton Cove. An avid sportsman, he can often be found surfing or kayaking from Westhampton to Montauk, or running several days weekly to prepare for marathons. Michael plays basketball and golf weekly with other realtors, is a decade-long player on the roster of the Annual Artists and Writers Softball Game in East Hampton, and can be seen regularly at East End art galleries. No matter what he does, however, Michael is always on the lookout for new listings and networking opportunities.
