    Lori is a terrific agent! She is attentive and really understands the needs of her clients. She is so hard working and makes the whole experience of working with a real estate agent a joy. I highly recommend her.


    Having sold my Bridgehampton home several years ago, I was extremely skeptical about being able to find another Hamptons house that would put a smile on my face every time I walked in the door. And despite consistently hunting with other agents and searching relentlessly online on my own, everything I saw fell flat. It became "the impossible dream". Through a remarkable and serendipitous coincidence, I was introduced to Lori Lambert. Within two hours of speaking, she sent me a listing I must have missed (despite looking every day on all the websites). We saw it the next day. We were in contract within a week, closed within a month and I've never been happier! Thanks to her creativity, resourcefulness and persistence I found my dream house. And I made a lifelong friend in the process. Kudos to Lori and her team for making the impossible...possible.

    Carol & Gerry Klinger

    We wanted to tell you that it was a pleasure dealing with Lori Lambert. She is a self motivated person eager to help us find the place we were looking for. All done with humor, patience and professionalism. Lori made it easy for us to find what we wanted.

    Sam Ghusson

    Lori has all of the great qualities that make her an effective real estate agent. She is knowledgeable, professional and tenacious. She was extremely responsive to our questions regardless of the day or time. It was truly a pleasure to work with her on our purchase.

    Heinrich Poelker

    As hard as it was for us to decide to sell, that's how easy Steven made it once we decided. A few twists and turns as always, which he handled perfectly without missing a beat. We couldn't possibly have asked for a better agent on our side.


    Steven and the Town & Country team were incredible to work with. You will not find a more knowledgeable, reliable broker in the Hamptons to help you find your next home. Steven continuously went above and beyond throughout our journey, navigating complex due diligence, competitive negotiations, and providing steady communication that ultimately led to a smooth transaction. We would highly recommend working with Steven and the Town & Country team.

    Lori has been a Godsend for me in terms of renting my house this summer. She was really discerning about finding me the RIGHT renter, rather than just finding anyone. She really loves my home, and she made sure I knew that she would only allow me to rent it to reliable people. I was pretty stressed out about renting my house in the first place, since it’s really my full-time residence and it involves a lot of work for me to move out for the month; but Lori took the stress right out of it. She vetted the renter really well, she got me the full asking price, and I had a contract signed and money wired to me inside of 48 hours. I am happy to say that through the experience, she also became a friend! I can’t recommend Lori highly enough to anyone seeking to buy, sell, or rent a home in the Hamptons. I am lucky to have her in my corner and you will be too!

    Barbara Locker

    Lori is dedicated, responsive and enthusiastic. A good listener, she heard my list of needs and met every one of them in short order and on short notice. A great animal lover, she was completely understanding about finding a place that would be comfortable for me and my senior dog, never making me feel that my pet's needs were any less important than my own. She is a committed professional who knows and serves her community.

    Andrea Weintraub & Brett Pallin

    Steven and Lori were such a pleasure to work with throughout our entire home buying process. We initially met Steven and Lori when we were renting in East Hampton during the summer, and because they were so helpful and great to work with we chose them to work with us on our subsequent home purchase. From the beginning, they listened to exactly what we were looking for and went above and beyond every step of the way to make sure we found the home we loved. Even after we closed on the home, Steven and Lori have continued to be a huge help making sure we are settled in our new home and acclimated to the neighborhood. We couldn’t recommend them enough!

    David & Allison Zales

    Spent several frustrating years with other brokers looking for a house in the Hamptons, spent just a few months with Lori and Steven and they found our dream home! The Zellman-Lambert Team knows the Hampton's market inside and out. Professional, responsive, conscientious and aggressive when necessary, they just get it done. I highly recommend them for anyone buying, selling or renting in the Hamptons.

    Jay Ross

    Lori is a one of a kind broker. She really takes the time to understand her client’s needs. Some brokers show listings for the sake of showing, Lori does not. She also has the unique ability to present options that a client might not think of but work. This is a very rare quality in a broker. In sum, Lori takes a personable approach to a process that can be somewhat daunting and makes it seem effortless.

    Harley Miller

    Unlike many agents I've dealt with in the past, Lori really listened. It was clear from the start that she was on my side without pressure, and she didn't waste my time. I initially started out looking for a seasonal rental, but with her help ended up securing a home to purchase that checked every box, even in this crazy market. Throughout the process, she was patient and resourceful, and her instincts/advice on how to make it happen were spot on. And we had fun along the way!

    Richard Schutran & Robin Miller, Southampton

    Lori is terrific. She is knowledgeable, hardworking, and persistent. We were skeptical that we could find a property that met our price, location, style, and size criteria in a very tight market, but she pulled it off and we are so happy and grateful. And we made a great new friend to boot. We recommend her without reservation.


    I have been looking for years with all the big agencies for that perfect beach shack. Just as I was about to give up and rent for life, along comes Lori Lambert with a big infectious smile and promises me the impossible. Two years later— I happily write this testimony staring at the Atlantic Ocean! Lori has obvious good taste and just gets it. She is like the cool camp sister that came later in life. She handled my transaction with promised discretion and tenacity. The first house we looked at was the one. Professionally, she listens and remembers. She responds in a timely manner. She will show enough comps in one day, even if you don’t feel like seeing them. Most importantly, she won't waste your time. And she is a lot of fun! Thank you to Judi and the Lambert Zellman Team.

    Aimee Gordon & Stephen Kussack

    Lori and Steven expertly guided us through the entire process of purchasing a second home, from navigating us through the different neighborhoods to ultimately helping us decide upon the best property. Lori and Steven truly cared about our search; they were always available, and there was no question that went unanswered. Besides being wonderfully happy with the house we purchased, we’ve acquired two lifelong friends during this real estate transaction. Steven and Lori are special people, who make an exceptional team together, and we are grateful for their friendship, diligence and expertise.

    Late last year, I received a call from Steve Zellman, who I had never spoken to before, asking me to list my vacation house with him. I informed him that a broker from another Real Estate Company, with whom I have had several conversations over the past 15 years, had also asked me to list with her. However, Steve impressed me with his experience and his strong knowledge of the market in the Hamptons and I wanted to work with him. I felt confident that he could sell my home. I agreed to give him my listing, only if he agreed to co-broker with the agent from the other Company and he did. I believe he values honesty and integrity over compensation and I am grateful for his character. From the moment we signed the contract, Steve and his wife Lori Lambert, took the lead and became actively involved in every aspect of the sale. On many occasions, they went above and beyond the scope of the contract to resolve any issues which arose. Without Steve’s diligence and pro-active business acumen, the sale of my house would not have happened. Steve is the epitome of a professional and I highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property in The Hamptons.

    Gregory Alsip

    It is with great pleasure that I offer the highest recommendation for Lori Lambert of Town & Country Hamptons. From initial contact throughout the entire process she epitomizes professionalism, courtesy, knowledge and care. In my vast experience with agents in multiple markets, she holds the top position and will be first contact for any future real estate matters.

    Julie & Jeffrey Rosen

    As we continue into our second Covid summer, the sport of finding and renting the right summer house in the Hampton has turned into a Hunger Game activity. That being said, in the sea of Hampton's realtors, it's rare to find someone who will go out of their way to insure their clients are comfortable and confident in their search for the perfect summer home rental. Lori is that agent. She was a complete joy with whom to work. She scouted the properties, personally visited them and in a competitive market was able to secure us a great place. Lori is a dream realtor, one we will use for years to come.

    John Graziadei

    Lori is a pleasure to work with, attentive and professional. She always keeps my property in mind for potential clients and is quite helpful when working out the details and dealing with issues that arise along the way.

    Andy Tuchman, East Hampton

    Steve was incredibly helpful and patient in finding me my dream plot of land in the Hamptons. I worked with Steve while summer renting for 5 years before finally making a purchase and he was always pleasant and insightful and made an effort got to know me to better understand my search. Steve had an excellent eye for what I was looking for and was extremely patient, never pushing me toward a house I didn’t love. I had been looking to purchase a home for over two years before Steve found the perfect one for me. I’m extremely grateful for his hard-work, knowledge, integrity and energy throughout the entire process.

    Megan Driscoll & Michael Craig, East Hampton

    My wife and I met Steven through a recommendation from a trusted friend. Steven immediately determined exactly what we were looking for, narrowed our search using that criteria, and expertly managed the process to bid, purchase, and execute the sale. With his help, we are now living in a house is perfect for us and even better than what we thought we could find.


    This correspondence serves as our highest recommendation for Real Estate Agent Lori Lambert. Lori assisted in several rentals for my home in East Hampton in 2019/20. We have worked with many real estate brokers and agents over the years on many real estate transactions and rentals and can say with confidence that Lori is one of the best agent/broker we have had the pleasure to work with. Lori epitomizes the qualities that make her an extremely successful and effective broker. She is highly knowledgeable of the East End market, conscientious and professional, and is always keeping the clients' best interests in mind. Our compliments to Town & Country.

    Arjun & Clark Misra

    Hot off the press - Just signed contract in East Hampton. We are very excited and, needless to say, we could not have done this with Steven’s immense assistance and guidance. Couldn’t have found a better partner who patiently guided us over the last year of intense searching! It’s been a long road with a lot of turns and twists but we are glad we found a parcel we are excited about!

    Jessica Brown

    Lori was so wonderful to work with! She was responsive and proactive and it felt like she truly cared about our family and finding us the best house possible for our needs. She has since become a friend and we hope to work with her again in the future.

    Mindy & Mark Schneider

    Ben Lebow

    Lori is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is an expert in the Hamptons market and was so patient with me as I got a feel for everything. Lori is at the top of my referral list and I’m happy to have gotten a friend out of it too.

    Brad Schnieder

    Steven helped us find the perfect summer rental. He left no stone unturned in our search for the perfect summer home. I would strongly recommend Steven for your rental or sales needs on the East End.

    Frank Trivoluzzi

    I do a significant amount of real estate dealings, I am pleased to convey Lori Lambert has been an upmost professional and delight to work with. Straight forward, honest, and easy to deal with. I would highly recommend her to any potential sellers, buyers, or renters.

    Zach Negroni

    Steven helped my girlfriend and I find an amazing summer rental in East Hampton. He is a locally based and was extremely knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods/areas. Throughout the entire process he was always reachable and very easy to communicate with. He clearly articulated all of the intricacies of the lease agreement. In addition, he always made sure that we felt comfortable and understood all of the details throughout every step of the process. If I ever need to rent another property or buy a place out in East Hampton I will definitely be going back to Steven. Highly recommended!
