Compass announced its expansion further into the East End of Long Island by welcoming the longest family owned and operated independent real estate company in Montauk led by father and daughter team, John and Nancy Keeshan.
The latest addition to the Compass team marks a continuation of the company’s rapid growth around the country.
The office, which will become Compass’ fifth office in the Hamptons, is located at 37 Carl Fisher Plaza, in the center of downtown Montauk.
The addition of the Keeshans bring Compassʼ East End agent tally to 44 agents across Montauk, East Hampton, Bridgehampton, Southampton and Sag Harbor offices.
Keeshan Real Estate was founded in 1977, making it the longest-established brokerage in Montauk. “Montauk is such a special town. With its famous beaches and protected landscape, the promise it will remain a quiet and relaxing destination for decades to come is increasingly attractive to buyers of all types, particularly millennials starting new families,” said John Keeshan.
“Compass, with its strong pulse on this demographic and the neighboring Hamptons communities, is the perfect partner to help us meet the evolving needs of the buyer and seller.”
“We’re excited to offer a combination of the foremost boutique brokerage in Montauk with the innovative approach that Compass brings to home buyers and sellers in this growing market.” said John Gicking, senior managing director for Compass in the Hamptons.
The company also welcomed Scott Strough and his team in Sag Harbor in early 2016 and saw one of its top agents, Ed Petrie, close on the second most expensive listing in Hamptons history.
