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.

Welcome to the wacky world of real estate!! Since 1984, I have been successfully helping real people comfortably navigate through the unfamiliar process of buying and selling homes, primarily in southwest Suffolk County. As an independent businesswoman, my reputation is my lifeline. Accordingly, I am very proud that satisfied clients and customers continually refer their family and friends to me. Whether you are looking for your first home, moving up to the waterfront-dream-come-true estate or stepping down to your retirement condo, I offer both sellers and buyers expertise with a gentle touch to guide them from start to finish.

I am also honored to have won the respect of my colleagues, another validation of my work and ethics. I am a Director of both the Long Island Board of Realtors and New York State Association of Realtors and was 2011 President of the Long Island Board of Realtors and 2007 Long Island Realtor Salesperson of the Year. Those positions have enabled me to help fellow Realtors be responsive to the needs and wishes of the consumer. I have been married to Ron since 1967, lived in West Islip since 1972 and been with Netter Real Estate since 1986.

With roots like these, you know I will be around to professionally and graciously assist you, your family and friends with all their real estate needs for many years to come.

I have been an Islip Town Resident for over 40 years and have resided in West Islip over the last 5 with my wife and 2 beautiful children. I started my career in Real Estate based on my experience with the purchase of my first home. I found it to be an interesting process that took intelligence, know how and care. This inspired me to want to do the same for others, wanting to help families find their dream homes or sell their homes with the utmost care and professionalism.

My bachelors and master’s degrees from The State University of New York at Stony Brook in Psychology, Social Studies and Education, along with my diverse life experiences have enabled me to form a unique perspective and understanding about people and situations that has translated very well to the real estate profession. I am dedicated to bringing quality customer service and serving the needs of each individual client in a way that is tailored for their specific needs.

Being a member of The Netter team has allowed me to learn from the best agents on Long Island. I look forward to finding you a great home or selling your beautiful house in the only way agents from Netter can

Although my younger years were spent on the North Shore, my choice to raise my family was the South Shore. I now know why: these two decisions helped me gain a wealth of knowledge and experience that expands from shore to shore. My first career in teaching was challenging and rewarding, but once my family began to expand I decided it was time to pursue my second career as a realtor.

The transition was easy, this too is a challenging, yet rewarding career.  With a strong sense of family and community,( taught in local school) I choose to partner with the local, family owned real estate.  My teaching background provides the detail oriented, organizational skills, patience and ability to adapt to all situations that make a successful realtor.  

I pride myself on staying committed to every client from the day we meet to the day you are in your new dream home.
