One of the most respected and successful brokers on Long Island's East End, Peter Huffine has spent the last 20 years exceeding his clients' expectations when purchasing, selling or renting prime Hamptons real estate. His culmination of expert market knowledge, hands-on building experience, and proven marketing expertise are key to his effectiveness, and are what continually drive clients to refer him business.
Originally from Vermont, Peter earned a Bachelor degree in Economics and English Literature, spending a year studying at Oxford University in England. He landed his first job in advertising on Madison Avenue with the prominent Young & Rubicam, rising the ranks in account management to Senior Vice President.
After years of providing expert service and handling new business development, he went to the client side as head of marketing for several brands at Nine West. All the while, shuffling back and forth to the Hamptons, to enjoy the scenery, and sell real estate. Ironically, he eventually made his largest sale so far - $35 million for the landmark Villa Maria, thanks to his close relationship with the founder of Nine West.
Peter's strength lies obviously in his marketing genius and creative, out-of-the-box thinking, but also in his hard work ethic. He is always the first one in the office, dressed however appropriate for the situation and ready to go at the drop of a dime. Peter is also very hands-on, and boasts a very good rapport with builders, tradesmen and suppliers who he keeps close tabs on during the construction process of a client's brand new home or a builder's latest creation. A "frustrated architect," he has designed and built all of his own homes, including the one in Water Mill where he currently resides, so he knows all about the process.
When signing on his exclusives, he is highly selective, in that he wants to be able to provide his full focus and attention to each property. Peter does not work with an assistant or team; he does it all himself to rest assured that everything is done right, and each deal closes without a hitch.
Peter loves the Hamptons because likens the best of Vermont, with the added benefit of the ocean. Peter also enjoys travel when time allows, as well as tennis, swimming and skiing. Peter supports local causes: God's Love We Deliver and Animal Rescue Fund. Peter is known to put his own needs aside to help those less fortunate; he is a pillar in the community and a mentor to his friends.
