Hamptons luxury real estate specialist for 33 years, Andrea Ackerman offers outstanding expertise in the field. Trusted, experienced and successful, Andrea has solidified herself as the go-to broker of the Hamptons and a wholehearted advocate for her clients. A pioneer in the real estate industry on the East End of Long Island, she is driven by her passion for the business.  She is based in the Bridgehampton office of Brown Harris Stevens as a licensed real estate associate broker and consultant.  Formerly, a principal partner of the firm, Andrea now assists in developing their corporate strategy for the Hamptons region, advising other brokers and sales associates, as well as being one of the top producers and listors and the exclusive Christie’s International Real Estate affiliate on the eastern end of Long Island.

Andrea grew up in Manhattan and attended Boston University, Hunter College and Long Island University.

Well known for her involvement in a variety of local fundraising, cultural and community organizations, Andrea has also been honored for outstanding leadership in her industry.  As a member of the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Center of the Hamptons, Andrea was the chairperson of the Social Action Committee and chaired the nominating committee which established a new slate of officers and trustees. Among her proudest endeavors is the founding of “Yard Sale Extraordinaire”, which raised money for a variety of local charities and contributed toward feeding the hungry form Montauk to Riverhead.  In July 2007, Andrea received a proclamation from County Executive Steve Levy recognizing her as an outstanding individual for her dedication and philanthropic contributions to the community, on behalf of 1.4 million residents of Suffolk County.

Being the instructive “go-to” person, not only within the office but within the company as a whole and within my community. I’m good at translating what people need into reality.

What makes you the best?:

I aspire to make a difference.  In such a competitive industry I strive to maintain my pristine reputation. I have managed to do that for 35 years.

Having lost my mother to it, I’m aware that almost every person has at least been peripherally impacted by the disease.
