Su­san Bre­it­en­bach is mak­ing waves as the East End’s turnkey queen.

The Wall Street Jour­nal ranked Su­san Bre­it­en­bach as the top Hamp­tons bro­ker for 2016. We sat down with her to talk about her suc­cess.

What is it about you that makes some of the most high-pow­ered peo­ple in the world turn to you when de­cid­ing to pur­chase a home? I take my busi­ness very se­ri­ously, and I live and breathe real es­tate ev­ery minute. Most im­por­tant is knowl­edge in my busi­ness, ex­pe­ri­ence from do­ing this full-time for 27 years, and hav­ing ne­go­ti­at­ing skills. I am still amazed when some of the most pow­er­ful peo­ple in the world not only ask for my opin­ion on real es­tate, but then they lis­ten! What is one of the most sat­is­fy­ing deals you have ever com­pleted? I think all the deals I do are sat­is­fy­ing, but one that comes to mind was a very chal­leng­ing one, where the owner kept chang­ing her mind, price, and terms for al­most six months. The buy­ers were ex­tremely pa­tient. They had to­tal con­fi­dence in me that I would get the deal done. What is the most in­ter­est­ing or in­trigu­ing prop­erty you’re rep­re­sent­ing now? Jacque­line Kennedy’s fam­ily prop­erty at 121 Fur­ther Lane, where she grew up in East Hamp­ton. It is im­pec­ca­bly re­stored, like no other prop­erty I have seen, on more than seven acres with many out­build­ings. Do you have any ad­vice to prospec­tive buy­ers about the Hamp­tons mar­ket right now? Right now it is a great time to buy. With sum­mer com­ing, there’s lots of in­ven­tory, and prices have ad­justed. Where are some great prop­er­ties that peo­ple might miss? There are some amaz­ing prop­er­ties that are un­der the radar, north of the high­way, most no­tably Matt Lauer’s 25-acre es­tate, which is a gar­dener’s dream. It’s so pri­vate and beau­ti­ful. What’s the se­cret to your suc­cess? The se­cret to suc­cess in real es­tate is to put your heart into it, be the most knowl­edge­able, work 24/7, and never give up! 1936 Mon­tauk Hwy., Bridge­hamp­ton, 631-8990303; su­san­bre­iten

This unique ocean­front mas­ter­piece at 7 Fair­field Pond Lane—with its ten­nis court, Jacuzzi, and rooftop deck—is so light and airy that passersby can see through the house to the sky be­yond.

85 High­land Ter­race is a 10,000-square-foot es­tate with a pri­vate tree-lined drive, a huge chef’s kitchen, and stun­ning land­scape ar­chi­tec­ture by Ed­mund Hol­lan­der, for a to­tal re­sort feel.
