Born and raised in Southampton, Rich Dec knows The Hamptons inside and out. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree at Plattsburgh State, Rich returned home to start a career in publishing. He first made his mark on the East End of Long Island in advertising sales for the East Hampton Independent and then Hamptons Magazine before moving to New York City where he quickly rose to the top of his game working at National magazines including Men’s Journal, Elle Decor, Car & Driver, Metropolitan Home, Boating, and Backpacker.
After 10 years in publishing and some major life changes, Rich decided to pursue something closer to his heart-a career in real estate sales. His passion began more than a decade ago when searching for his own home on the East End. Over the years, Rich's personal interest in construction and renovations also led him to developing some speculative properties from Southampton to East Hampton. This knowledge and experience has helped give his client’s and customers an honest, realistic and fresh perspective whether selling or buying a home.
Now servicing Southampton to Montauk, his current place of residence and everywhere in between, he thoroughly enjoys the research, detailed market analysis and the interaction he encounters with clients, customers and colleagues every day. Rich is dedicated to providing excellent customer service, product knowledge and the best opportunities to meet his client’s and customer’s expectations. Rich is currently working as an Associate Broker and his passion, experience as well as knowledge of real estate in The Hamptons will make your experience with The Corcoran Group a truly positive one.
Rich enjoys spending time with his family, working on home improvement projects, surfing, fishing, ice hockey and almost any outdoor activity.
