Tim O'Connor has been a Hamptons resident for the past 25 years with experience in home and land sales, home builds and renovations, interior and landscape design, property management, and rentals. Tim's extensive luxury sales and marketing tenure has allowed him to cultivate a keen eye for design. He has a discriminating palette and highly-honed negotiation skills--allowing clients to benefit from his finger-on-the-pulse sensibility for the Hamptons lifestyle and market.

Tim possesses a natural gift for positioning properties--from those that have not yet realized their full potential to others that have been designed to perfection.

He is well poised to help you find your perfect escape and home in the Hamptons.

Tim resides in East Hampton with his partner, Jeff, who owns a successful interior design firm, and their Schnauzers, Sparkee and Winston. They enjoy the beach, running, and bike rides. They are also committed to a number of charities, including Animal Rescue Fund (ARF), Housing Works, and Hetrick-Martin.

"Tim O'Connor is an absolutely terrific agent. We have bought and sold numerous homes and Tim stands out as, by far, the best agent we have ever dealt with. From beginning to end and even after the sale, Tim always kept us informed of listings, helped with the closing process and negotiations, and even helped us get acclimated to the area. We would unequivocally recommend Tim as an agent." – Maria & Stephen Z.
“Tim is the crème de la crème of realtors. He is knowledgeable, intelligent, effective, a straight shooter, and a hard worker. He knows the market, he knows what is ridiculous versus what is expected versus what is a stretch but worth a shot. He does his homework and never wastes your time; his description of a property ahead of a visit is never inaccurate in any way. He only takes you to properties that qualify as something that matches your interests and budget, and he knows the temperature of the market in terms of advising negotiation dollars, timing, and other factors. He will tell you upfront if he thinks you should pass on a property and wait for something better, whether the market portends a better opportunity worth waiting for, or if the market is such that "you better act now." In short, he knows what is going on and is straightforward, honest, and intelligent in guiding you. Overall, he is top notch.” – Melinda T.
“Tim is a consummate professional. He knows the market inside and out (and he has lived in East Hampton 20+ years), for sales as well as rentals. Tim was super responsive and thorough about every detail of our seasonal rentals in 2016, ‘17, and ‘18. He's one of the best in the business.” – Raul B.
“Tim is the consummate realtor. His up-to-the-minute knowledge of the marketplace and offerings go above and beyond. Tim is super organized, efficient, prepared, and on top of all the details of a real estate transaction. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent.” – Kevin W.
"I had the pleasure of listing my house with Tim O'Connor and he was able to successfully procure a buyer at my full asking price. Tim held many open houses and always kept me informed with any and all feedback during the listing period. I cannot say enough about his professionalism and knowledge. This is a broker who really works for his clients and has great ethics." - Jarvis C.
"Helpful in every way possible to make selling an enjoyable experience. The brochure that was done was thoughtful, precise and beautiful, and it showed effort and caring for my home." - Rosemary S.
“We are now two years into working with Tim and of course he is the only broker we interact with out East! Prompt, detailed, an amazing eye, and keen sense of what we want for rentals or properties make it easy to not want anyone else!” – NVDK
“We have been working with Tim to find our second home in the Hamptons, and it has been a tremendously positive experience. Tim is a long-term resident of East Hampton, and his extensive knowledge of the area and its real estate market has proven to be invaluable to us. He is the consummate professional, and he has been exceedingly responsive and patient with us in our search. We have worked with numerous real estate agents over the years in various regions, and I would not hesitate to recommend Tim to anyone considering buying or selling a home in the Hamptons.” - Sindu C. & David N.
“Tim is a master at selling real estate. He has great market knowledge, has a wonderful sense of the salient features of a property, and is able to market in a forthright, honest fashion. He has great suggestions on the most relevant aspects of staging, without any of it being superficial. Very straightforward, great insight, and positive energy. A pleasure to deal with and I can't recommend him highly enough.” James L.
“Tim is simply a great agent. No one will provide more relevant detail on your listing, keep up with showings, refresh your listing, and go the extra mile the way Tim does. He’s consistent, available, timely, and easy to work with.” - Karen S.
This was my first start to finish experience with Halstead and I could not have been happier to have found Tim O'Connor to broker the deal. Always quick to respond, polite, extremely knowledgeable, great taste and understood what I was looking for just from our first meeting. Any home I rent or purchase in the Hamptons will be with Tim in the future, there is no doubt about that!” - Niels VDK
Tim O'Connor is one of the best and most efficient brokers I've ever encountered. While most agents are always chasing the next deal, it's unique to come across a broker with such professionalism and follow through as Tim. I will certainly use Tim in future transactions and will recommend him to anyone else looking to rent or sell their home in the Hampton's.” – Barbara K.
We are looking to buy waterfront property in the Hamptons and Tim took the time to put together a well-organized and thoughtful selection of homes for us to see. His insight was incredibly helpful. We thoroughly enjoy working with him and we thank Tim for his thoughtfulness and professionalism. It’s an absolute pleasure to work with him!!!” Maria & Steve Z.
Tim O’Connor has been nothing less than a dream to work with. Not only was he very proactive in dealing with small difficulties which can arise from time to time when renting out property from overseas, but he also made sure that he found trustworthy renters for our properties (and even rented one that we weren’t considering as a rental!). Tim went out of his way to make sure we felt at ease and that his clients would be made comfortable as well. He was always most complimentary and easy to work with—truly an affable and cooperative human being. We will surely use Tim in the future to secure clients looking for summer rentals in Amagansett.” Jodi & Hal H.
We can honestly say, we have never had such a positive experience working with a broker for a summer rental before. Tim is organized, prompt, efficient and responsive. He immediately understood what we were looking for and only showed us houses that fit our needs and lifestyle. Now we are starting to look for a home to purchase in the Hampton’s and look forward to working closely with Tim. We can't recommend Tim enough!” Kat and Adam S.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done to finalize the purchase of our new home in East Hampton. It was such a pleasure working with you. Your professionalism and knowledge of the area was so beneficial when making the final decision to buy our home. And your continued help after the sale with referrals for the property was a lifesaver, you made the management of our home so much easier. Halstead is lucky to have someone like you. Thank you.” - Holly C. & Bob M.
“Tim is a consummate professional. It was a pleasure working with him in finding our new home in Sag Harbor. When we told him what we were looking for, he knew exactly what we wanted and did not waste his or our time in looking for the perfect home for us. He negotiated a fair deal for the seller and for us. We highly recommend Tim.” - Paula & Stamos A.
