#5 HAMPTON'S DOUGLAS ELLIMAN AGENT (TRANSACTIONS 2019)
HIRE A VETERAN
INTEGRITY FIRST, SERVICE BEFORE SELF, EXCELLENCE IN ALL I DO!
These are my core values, working for my clients to serve their needs and represent their interests to the best of my ability. I have teamed up with my wife Jeanne, an associated licensed broker with Douglas Elliman, Westhampton Beach since 1996. Together we are bringing our knowledge of the Hamptons and love of service to the community and our clients.
I grew up in Bayside, NY and summered in Hampton Bays since 1962 until moving there permanently in 1979. I attended Dowling College in Oakdale, NY and received a Bachelor in Business Administration while also completing my private and commercial pilot licenses and instrument rating.
In 1979, I joined the 106th Rescue Wing, New York Air National Guard, in Westhampton Beach and served as a HH-3E combat rescue helicopter pilot , HC-130 combat fixed-wing pilot, flying Squadron Commander, Operations Group Commander, Logistics Group Commander, Maintenance Group Commander and completed my career as the Vice Wing Commander. I am a combat decorated veteran and served as both a pilot and commander during overseas contingencies. I have been credited with saving numerous lives as a pilot, led many successful life-saving missions as a commander, and was instrumental with developing Space Shuttle contingency rescue procedures and developing numerous national/NATO/New York State programs. I received numerous awards to include the Legion of Merit, Meritorious Service Medal and Air Medal. I retired from the military as a colonel after 32+ years of service. Upon retirement, I was honored by the wing and the Air Force and my name was placed on the HH-3E helicopter that stands at the base entrance.
I am an active member with the Veterans of Foreign War, American Legion, Chairman of the 106th Rescue Wing's Alumni Association, Knights of Columbus and St Rosalies Holy Name Society.
My interests include golf, fishing and water sports.
My wife Jeanne and I have been blessed with two children, Brittney and Christopher.
