Real Estate Firm Halstead Property Comes to Southampton Village

Office opening on Main Street.

New York-metropolitan area real estate firm Halstead Property, which is looking to expand its footprint in the Hamptons, has opened a temporary office in Southampton Village and plans to move into a ground floor office this spring.

The office will be located at 31 Main Street, in the storefront formerly occupied by home store MacKenzie-Childs, and the temporary office, which opened Jan.1, is upstairs at 27A Main Street.

According to Halstead Property's Tumblr, more than 20 agents will be working from the new location, all new hires.

"We're the 24th office that they opened, and about a year ago they bought Devlin McNiff in East Hampton because they wanted to come to the Hamptons," said Nancy Hardy, who leads the Southampton office as director of sales.

An Alabama native, Hardy has lived in Southampton since 1989 and in New York City before that. She is an 18-year veteran of the real estate industry, having started her career at Allan Schneider Associates and then joining Douglas Elliman before accepting her new position at Halstead Property.

Hardy said the Main Street location was an obvious choice for Halstead Property. "Where else would you want to be? It's the perfect location. We've got parking behind us, wonderful foot traffic — prime real estate."

She added that the 31 Main Street office will have something unique: a touch-screen kiosk for browsing listings, which can be used from the sidewalk.

Southampton home sellers are already reaching out to Halstead Property to make sure their properties are on the firm's radar. "We're handling floods of calls," Hardy said.

Halstead Property deals in all levels of real estate, both sales and rentals, she said. "We're happy to have every range of customer."

Hardy is a member of the Parrish Art Museum Board of Trustees and co-chairs the museum's annual Spring Fling fundraiser. She is also a director of the Hamptons and North Fork Realtors Association.

Halstead Property's closest office to Southampton is in East Hampton Village.

The last thing we need in Southampton Village is another real estate office.:(

If anyone is thinking of listing their house with Halstead Property, I would recommend using another realtor. We live near their office in Westport, Connecticut and they refused to show us their listings unless we promised not to talk to any other realtors. I don't know if the people who list their houses for sale with Halstead know that they do this, but if I were listing a house with a realtor, I would not be too pleased if the realtor was refusing to show it to people. Then the Halstead realtor involved refused to give us the name of the branch manager, even though we asked several times. That is pretty bad when the realtor won't even show their own listings.

and I am pretty sure the branch manager was aware of it, because at the same time the Realtor refused to give the branch manager's name, they supposedly told the branch manager about the problem - so if the realtor was telling the truth about that, the Halstead branch manager was telling them not to give their name. That is pretty bad. That is pretty bad conduct - for the realtor, for the branch manager, and what did the Halstead headquarters do about it ? absolutely nothing, of course.
