Managing Director, Emeritus
Stuart was born in Chicago and spent his formative years in the Midwest. He followed this with four years at the University of Michigan, and then he moved to New York where he graduated with an MBA degree from Columbia University. His first career was spent in marketing and advertising; initially, in marketing research and then 17 years in account management at one of the finest advertising agencies of the 1980's: Scali, McCabe, Sloves.
In 1991, determined to have an adventure and a better quality of life, Stuart and his wife, Lynn, purchased Devlin McNiff Real Estate and moved themselves, lock, stock and barrel, to East Hampton. In the Fall of 2011, they joined the firm with Halstead Property, a leading residential real estate brokerage firm. Stuart now serves as the Managing Director, East Hamptons for Devlin McNiff Halstead Property.
Stuart and Lynn live in Amagansett. They have three grown children, a growing number of grandchildren, and a granddog. Stuart enjoys Pilates, golf, and civic affairs. His enthusiasm for East End Real Estate grows with each year.
