A native of Pennsylvania Dutch Country and a graduate of Penn State's School of Journalism and Villanova University School of Law, Maxine Hirt has been proud to call herself a New Yorker for over 35 years, 23 of them on the East End of Long Island. She put aside her career as a lawyer in 2008, and has been happily selling and renting houses on the East End ever since, as an Associate Real Estate Broker with Town & Country Real Estate.
Maxine began her legal career at the Wall Street firm of Hawkins, Delafield, and Wood, where she was a member of the tax department and was privileged to work with, among others, Louis Auchincloss. She is most proud, however, of her work as Counsel to the Municipal Assistance Corporation, the agency responsible for saving New York City from bankruptcy in 1975. Marriage to Richard Hirt, a local architect, brought her to Bridgehampton in 1990. Locally, she served as Deputy Town Attorney to the Town of Southampton under current Assemblyman, then-Supervisor Fred Thiele, and as of counsel to two local attorneys, practicing all facets of land use law, before moving over to real estate.
Maxine believes her career in real estate on the East End is enhanced by her years of professional experience with the local legal and governmental communities, her appreciation and knowledge of local architecture (thanks in part to her husband), as well as her love of the area.
Maxine and Richard are parents of a daughter, Renee, a student at Dickinson College. The family currently resides in North Haven.
Testimonials About Maxine Hirt:
It has been a pleasure to work with Maxine over the past few years! We are in the process of moving from Fire Island to the Hamptons and have worked with Maxine to rent places until we find our dream home. Maxine has a wealth of knowledge and experience that has been invaluable to us, both in terms of renting homes and in thinking about the pros and cons of the different communities. We have one RE agent we've worked with for years in Manhattan and I'm so happy to have found in Maxine someone who I trust and whose opinions I truly value to help us during our transition out East. Paul Teixeira and David Rimple
Thank you again for all your help in finding me the ideal tenants, and for making it all so easy!! The tenants are perfect for my house, and vice versa. You have a very special talent for understanding the chemistry between people (tenants and homeowners), and their relationship to specific environments -- creating a win-win for all parties. The ease of this "match" only underscores your talent and deepens my appreciation for all your help. Thanks again! Susan Aminoff
My husband and I contacted Maxine about a one month rental she had listed. She treated us like we were buying a multi-million dollar house. We had only two days to find our rental, and Maxine left no stone unturned to find us the perfect place. Maxine was professional, warm, natural and very patient with us. She found us the perfect summer house, and we look forward to working with her again. We recommend her most highly.Judy Prince
