Meet Real Estate Agent Kathleen Warner By george holzman iii


athleen Warner grew up in Glendale, Queens. The East End was a frequent spot for family vacations. Her parents enjoyed it so much they decided to make it their home and moved out to the East End after they retired, when Warner was 17 years old. She has lived here for 36 years and married into a well-established fishing family. She knows all the special spots that Hampton Bays has to offer including the canal, inlet, three bays, creeks and ponds. “It offers more waterfront than any other of the Hamptons. Great restaurants and an award winning (LEED-certified) green school,” says Warner. She raised her children here, so she knows a lot about the school district and the many extracurricular activities the town sponsors. She lives with her husband, two children and their dog Salty.

When she isn’t in the office or showing property to potential buyers you can find her at one of the many beaches in Hampton Bays, walking around the downtown, or biking. She is also a huge fan of reading and going to local yard sales. Hampton Bays offers a wide variety of homes, with ready access to all that the Hamptons have to offer. Warner describes the three most interesting houses that she is selling in Hampton Bays right now. The first is a stunning 1930’s, Victorian-style house, which is totally renovated with three bedrooms, two baths, a wood burning stove and original crown molding. It has stained glass windows, fir floors, central air conditioning, as well as a legal one-bedroom cottage, a 300-square-foot shed and a one-car garage. This is all on three quarters of an acre and is listed for $669,000. The second is a great starter house or investment

property. It needs a lot of TLC but for $319,000 this half-acre property is well worth it. It has wood floors, a new generator, a new furnace, and a new hot water heater. It was built in 1947 and features three bedrooms and two baths. The last listing that Warner mentioned is a fivebedroom, traditional home with a fire place in the living room, French doors and an outdoor Trex deck overlooking a 20- by 40-foot heated pool on a half acre lot. It has a formal dining room, a family room, full basement, two baths and a wood-burning stove. This house is listed at $549,000. 516-317-3157 Douglas Elliman Real Estate 14 West Montauk Highway Hampton Bays

Her favorite thing about living on the East End? Warner absolutely loves nature because it has so much to offer. “I really enjoy the farms, seeing the fishermen, and the beautiful homes, deer and delicious and fresh seafood.” Warner has been in the real estate business for six years. She works for Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, in their Hampton Bays office at 14 West Montauk Highway. Before she got into the business of selling houses and property she was a certified teacher and a homemaker. She notes that the market is picking up and her expectations for the upcoming season are that it’s going to be very busy and things will continue to move. Some advice she offered was, “It is a really good idea to rent if you’re looking to buy a house. Then you’re able to find out what exactly you want in a future home. This is especially important for people that are just getting started.” Warner points out that a huge mistake that a lot of sellers make is that they don’t use agencies and their websites to reach the vast number of potential buyers. “96% of all buyers today see property online. You should deal with a big outreach online. You’ll receive maximum exposure,” says Warner. She advises new real estate agents not to take on too many listings at once, to take time with each listing. She puts in extra time finding and selling each home because each one is unique and deserves special attention.
