Starting in 1995 on the East End with the legendary Allan Schneider Associates, now the Corcoran Group, Gary DePersia has participated in more than a billion dollars of real estate transactions with over 250 of his exclusive listings sold and closed, as well as matching hundreds of his own buyers and renters with the right properties. His inventory is currently more than $400,000,000 including Bridgehampton’s incredible Sandcastle residence, Shelter Island’s 36 acre water view horse farm known as Paard Hill, Water Mill’s Mecox Bay estate Rose Hill Point as well as over a dozen new construction projects. Gary is consistently ranked among the top producers in the Hamptons. Repeatedly listed as a top broker for the last 10 years, in 2008 he was Corcoran’s top broker on the East End by sales volume and rental units. In November of 2008, the Wall Street Journal recognized Gary as the 4th top ranked broker by sales volume in the US with transactions over $202,000,000, a list he has made since 2007; including being ranked #11 Nationwide in 2012 with over $186M worth of sales volume.
Benchmark transactions include: being the listing broker on the highest priced land transaction ever in Bridgehampton (2007), the listing broker on the highest priced residential sale north of the highway in East Hampton (2009) as well as being the selling broker for the most expensive single family residence to ever sell north of the highway off the water in the Hamptons ($20+M, 2005). In 2011, Gary was both the listing and selling broker for the 55 acre water front oasis Tyndal Point, which at $36M, was the highest price ever paid for a residential property north of the highway as well as the largest single transaction on the East End for that year.
Based in the East Hampton office, Gary has built a business that stretches from Southampton to Montauk and from Sagaponack to Shelter Island, made possible by the addition of 4 licensed associates. A well-rounded broker, he is as comfortable assisting renters to find a modest summer cottage as he is showing one of his spectacular multi-million dollar listings. This diversity has made him a favorite of NYC brokers and others out of area looking to refer their clients. Gary is one of the East End’s most prolific advertisers. His exclusives can be found regularly in local, national and international publications. He has appeared frequently on Plum TV and NBC’s Open House NY where he has profiled his listings and has commented on market trends.
