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. A great opportunity came about to open a small, satellite office in Ocean Beach and, wow ...are we having fun! I We have listed many gorgeous beach houses for both sale and rent in numerous Fire Island communities. We can assist you with selling, buying or renting and we will escort you to view any home across Fire Island by boat, car, bicycle and golf cart. Our Team at Netter Real Estate is experienced in finding first time homebuyers their dream home, assisting current homeowners to sell and step up to their new dream home, helping owners move out of state or even out of the country and now those who want to own or rent a piece of paradise on Fire Island. We also work with many local business owners to sell or rent their commercial buildings. Netter Real Estate is dedicated to providing superior service to all of our clients. We want you, your family and your friends to be our Customers for Life!
