real estate agency, About Town & Country, Town & Country Real Estate

Judi Desiderio, CEO and Founder, opened Town & Country Real Estate, a boutique real estate agency, in one of the worst bear markets the Hampton and North Fork had ever witnessed. Judi says that it “may have been a bit bold in such challenging times” but “the real estate people I have known are true entrepreneurs and think outside the box. So, with entrepreneurs in mind, combined with my love and knowledge of real estate, I set my sails.”

Janet Hummel, Managing Partner, joined Judi shortly thereafter and quickly established a successful Town & Country presence in Bridgehampton. “Our agents are able to achieve excellence because they are dedicated to their field,” says Janet. “They know we are taking care of all the support they need from marketing to technology.”

In 2008, Nancy McGann completed the partnership and as Senior Managing Partner opened the Southampton Office. “Our aim is to deliver superior service to our clientele while maintaining a cohesive working environment. The only way to accomplish this goal is carefully selecting who represents Town & Country. Every agent’s identity and character is important to the success of our company. It’s quality, not quantity, that truly matters.”

Together, these three highly regarded, experienced professionals apply their years of experience and accumulated knowledge to assist their agents and brokers in servicing the most discerning clientele.


With nearly a century, collectively, in real estate on the East End, Judi Desiderio, Janet Hummel, and Nancy McGann remain steadfast and true to their mission statement to position Town & Country Real Estate as the leading East End real estate agency. The Partners, along with the Board of Directors, continue expanding and exploring our ever changing real estate industry. This keen focus on forward thinking powers T&C in continual forward momentum.

At Town & Country Real Estate the focus is on a discerning clientele that expects and deserves unparalleled service from a select group of real estate professionals. To that end we empower our agents using every tool available to provide superior service. Today, Town & Country Real Estate is the largest, most comprehensive locally owned and operated, independent real estate agency on Long Island’s East End.


Town & Country’s 8 East End offices are staffed by experienced professional real estate associates who are at the top of their prospective fields serving both the North Fork and South Fork. This provides a totally encompassing, comprehensive Hamptons and East End luxury real estate experience.

As an independent real estate agency, with on-site owner operators, Town & Country Real Estate has the flexibility of a boutique. Yet we offer the expansive reach and scope as the corporately held real estate companies and franchise operated conglomerates. At Town & Country Real Estate our professional real estate agents provide personalized service for customers and clients. Our agents service all types of real estate investments including homes, land, summer house rentals, and commercial properties throughout Long Island’s East End including the Hamptons and North Fork.

Our select group of experienced real estate professionals have vast networks of repeat and referral customers and clients. Yet at times, new clients, customers and brokers find us on the Internet via our marketing programs which we customize for our Exclusives. Listing Exclusively with Town & Country gives you the greatest advantage of both personalized service and expansive reach.


Our secret – the winning combination begins with dedicated real estate agents who excel in marketing plans executed in the unique Hamptons and North Fork. We support that work with the most advanced technology available in the real estate industry. Further, we offer the guidance and support of hands-on owners and managers with depth of knowledge and years of experience in selling high-end, luxury Long Island real estate. To further position T&C associates above all others, we have assembled a marketing department whose sole duty is to empower our agents like no other firm can do.
