Amy Forst, a seasoned real estate professional based in East Hampton, possesses a unique blend of expertise that sets her apart from her peers. With over three decades of residency in East Hampton and as a principal partner at Forst Construction since 2001, Amy boasts an unrivaled understanding of the local real estate market. This, paired with her degree in hospitality from Johnson & Wales University and her license as a real estate salesperson with Town & Country Real Estate, has equipped Amy with the skills to seamlessly guide clients through the buying and selling process.
"Helping individuals find their dream home, build a house, or invest in a second home is a gratifying experience," says Amy. "Even the most challenging transactions, such as short sales, are fulfilling when I see the relief on the faces of my clients."
After a successful career in the food and beverage industry, where she owned and operated Barefoot Contessa in East Hampton for seven years, Amy made the transition to real estate, drawn to the dynamic interactions with people it affords. "My natural demeanor and extensive knowledge bring comfort to my clients during their real estate transactions," says Amy.
Clients and customers alike rely on Amy to get the job done. Ray Serva, a satisfied client, attests, "After multiple sales with other realtors, I found Amy to stand out with her unparalleled local knowledge, expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills. If I had any questions or concerns, she was always available and prompt in her response, handling everything professionally. Our sale was particularly lengthy, but Amy put in more effort in a few months than our attorney did in an entire year. Without her, we may still be working on the sale. She always had a smile on her face and was determined to make things happen."
In addition to her professional pursuits, Amy Forst is deeply committed to her community and volunteers her time with the Hamptons Lifeguard Association.
