In her life as a bro­ker, Jes­sica J. Von Hagn sells what she loves—the East End.

Jes­sica J. von Hagn moved to the Hamp­tons for the re­gion’s clean, sim­ple beauty. “It’s funny to equate the Hamp­tons with sim­pler,” she says, “but be­hind the sum­mer­time flash, it re­ally is just a beau­ti­ful blessed area.” Her first pro­fes­sional dip into the lo­cal real es­tate mar­ket was in 2011, when she and her hus­band bought an in­vest­ment prop­erty in North Haven. “Upon com­plet­ing a full gut ren­o­va­tion and ex­pan­sion, I found out I was preg­nant with my first child,” she re­calls. The cou­ple re­lo­cated to North Haven from New York City, and now von Hagn sells the Hamp­tons life­style for a liv­ing. Based in the Sag Har­bor of­fice of Brown Har­ris Stevens, she is spread­ing her roots deep into the com­mu­nity.

Her ex­pe­ri­ence with the East End goes back 20 years, when her par­ents owned a small real es­tate in­vest­ment com­pany that fo­cused on Bridge­hamp­ton, Sagaponack, and Sag Har­bor. She uses this back­ground, as well as her vi­sion for cre­at­ing in­vest­ments in high­de­mand ar­eas, to pro­pel her busi­ness. But it’s also her love for the place that drives her. “From the gor­geous farm­land to the pris­tine bays and oceans, it is a nat­u­ral par­adise,” says von Hagn.

Year round, she loves to grab a drink at Baron’s Cove and the Amer­i­can Ho­tel in Sag Har­bor. Come sum­mer, the choices in­crease ex­po­nen­tially, in­clud­ing Sun­set Beach or Salt on Shel­ter Is­land, The Bea­con in Sag Har­bor, or Wölf­fer Es­tate Vine­yard in Sagaponack. “On a typ­i­cal day off in sum­mer, you’ll find me at Sagg Main Beach,” she says, “or ex­plor­ing the bays with my two kids or on our boat at some re­mote beach.” Brown Har­ris Stevens, 96 Main St., Sag Har­bor, 631-903-6189; bhshamp­
