Netter Real Estate Inc
James A Netter established Netter Real Estate over forty years ago after working with and being trained by his father, a well-known and respected member of the real estate community on Long Island for many years. Jim worked at his father's Babylon office for several years before deciding to branch out on his own, targeting Lindenhurst to Sayville as his primary listing and sales territory. He is a member of the National Association of Realtors, New York State Association of Realtors and Long Island Board of Realtors. Jim is a past president of the Multiple Listing Service of Long Island and served on the MLS Executive Committee and LIBOR's Professional Standards Committee. Accordingly, it is with great pride that we say, "Since 1949, we have been helping people move across town and across country." Jim's unique, personal management, sales and training abilities has moved Netter Real Estate into position as one of the premier, privately owned agencies on Long Island. Sales volume for 2018 was over $165,000,000. Netter Real Estate supports nearly seventy full time/part-time associate brokers and sales associates and a dozen administrative personnel. Our team members have been putting smiles on the faces of clients and customers for many years. Our approach is to meet the clients' needs with personal and professional service. Successful marketing of real estate takes determination, perseverance and financial creativity. These qualities set the sales staff apart from our competitors and help maintain our unsurpassed success. In the summer of 2018, Netter Beach Estates was born.

Born and raised in Babylon and Southampton, my strong love of my community has kept me on Long Island where I continue to raise my family. Being intimately familiar with Fire Island and the South Shore of Long Island has given me a first-hand understanding of the intricacies of real estate in the area.
My earlier professional years consisted of a career as a Financial Analyst at IBM, Kidder Peabody & Co and as an account manager for Johnson & Higgins. While raising my children I was an integral part of building and successfully running a family-owned local glass company serving both residential and commercial clients. As a certified EMT/First Responder and someone active in my community, I find significant gratification in helping to enhance people’s lives through multiple avenues including the acquisition or sale of real estate.
As an active investor in the Long Island property market since 1986, I bring my clients the broad knowledge of all facets of real estate from my experiences in real estate sales to property management. My expertise and market knowledge coupled with my interpersonal and negotiating skills help to ensure a seamless transaction. Let me use my excellent track record to create a win-win environment for buyers and sellers in any of your real estate needs.
I pride myself on my honesty, integrity, hard work and personal service. My first career was in education, starting as a teacher then finishing as a guidance counselor and achieving my Bachelors, Masters and two PDs. In 1986, I began my real estate career. In a sense, I am still an educator and offering guidance; this time I am outside of the classroom educating my clients on the selling and purchasing processes; which have become so complicated recently and guiding them safely through the confusing and ever-changing real estate market.
It is very satisfying to me to help people with not only the greatest financial asset in their lives but their greatest emotional asset; where they celebrate holidays, raise their families and live their lives. I take the needs of my clients very seriously and as a result, I am proud to say, over 90% of my sales are the result of referrals and recommendations. Primarily, my areas of service are the Townships of Babylon and Islip on Long Island’s beautiful South Shore, near pristine beaches and wonderful boating, yet only 55 minutes from Manhattan; truly the best of both worlds.
I'm a graduate of the Real Estate Institute and am certified as an Accredited Buyer Representative, ABR, as well as a Senior Real Estate Specialist. I have been in real estate for over 30 years. I also hold a license as a Notary Public. Please feel free to call or visit so I can help you fulfill your real estate dreams.

I was born and raised on the south shore of Long Island, Bay shore NY where I still happily reside. I've been practicing Bikram yoga since 2010, and I am a proud supporter of the AFSP. I started my career in the mortgage industry back in 2003. This gave me the knowledge and experience on both ends of a transaction.
I believe to build a solid relationship you need to be personable and professional. I know that in today's complex market many people find themselves confused, and overwhelmed. My goal is to help find the right approach for each individual person, whether you're a first time buyer, investor, looking to trade up, deciding to downsize or simply a location change.
Everything comes with challenges but if we keep laughing through them we'll get to where we want to be!
