John McHugh, a Global Real Estate Advisor and Associate Broker with Sotheby's International Realty, began his real estate career in 2001. An expert in the luxury market with 13 years of experience, he has represented numerous high-end properties throughout the Hamptons, including notable oceanfront and land listings.

From 2006 to 2008, he was the listing and selling agent for multiple Meadow Lane properties that sold for record-setting prices of more than $25 million. He recently sold Wooldon Manor for an asking price of roughly $95 million, making his 2013 fourth quarter total more than $100 million. He is currently listing Villa Maria for $49.5 million.

While John handles a broad array of properties, he specializes in high-end waterfront listings. His knowledge of local zoning, wetlands and permit processes are a great resource for his clientele, whether foreign investors, celebrities, or those buying a family home. The majority of John's business is from referrals and satisfied repeat customers, which is evidence of his enthusiasm, discretion and dedication to client-centered service. His extensive knowledge of local neighborhoods and amenities benefits buyers who are unfamiliar with the area.

A New York City native, John grew up on Manhattan's Upper East Side, where he attended the Buckley School. Before establishing his career in real estate, he worked on Wall Street for seven years, after studying art history and sociology at Roanoke College in Virginia. He was drawn to the Hamptons by its beautiful beaches and relaxed lifestyle, which seem a world apart from New York City.
