Averitt began his real estate career in Manhattan and gradually grew more involved in the Hamptons market as friends and colleagues relied on him over the years to be their trusted Hamptons real estate guide. Although he now focuses exclusively on Hamptons properties, Averitt maintains a presence in both locations, which allows him to bridge the gap between existing Hamptons homeowners and New York City clients.
Averitt is a licensed attorney in three states and the District of Columbia. Prior to entering real estate, he was a litigation attorney for a multinational law firm and served as a law clerk for two Federal Court of Appeals judges. His strong legal background affords him expert negotiation skills, a sharp mind for practical reasoning, and an honest, no-nonsense approach in his dealings.
Averitt is an undergraduate of Davidson College and holds a law degree from Wake Forest University. He lives in an historic home in Southampton Village, and is active in various social and civic organizations in the Hamptons and New York City. He is especially passionate about the preservation of green spaces, and serves as a "Bud" for the New York Restoration Project.
