Jonathan Smith, based in the Sotheby's International Realty - Southampton brokerage, brings more than a decade of real estate experience to every deal. He has been involved in the industry as an agent and as a small-scale developer and investor, giving him a unique and comprehensive perspective on the market.
A native New Yorker, Jonathan has been summering on the East End for forty years making him intimately familiar with the Southampton area. He grew up on Central Park West and attended the Collegiate and Lawrenceville schools. Jonathan studied at the American University of Paris and Trinity College Dublin before graduating from Vassar College.
In his early professional life, Jonathan was a political consultant and fundraising professional, working with state and national campaigns before running for New York State Assembly in 2008. He was then recruited to lead a team of fundraisers at Vassar College as the Director of the Annual Fund. During this period, he consistently purchased, renovated and sold investment properties throughout New York City and State, in what was a passion that would lead him directly to Sotheby’s International Realty.
Since joining Sotheby’s International Realty, Jonathan has facilitated notable transactions at all price points. While focusing primarily on the Southampton market, he has worked successfully in all corners of the East End. In 2015, he represented over $50 million in Hamptons listings,including a $17M sale, the highest priced non-waterfront transaction in the Estate Section of Southampton Village that year. In the first quarter of this year, Jonathan has put properties into contract in Southampton, Sag Harbor and East Hampton, providing knowledgeable and professional representation to both buyers and sellers of these distinguished properties.
Jonathan lives in Sag Harbor with his wife, Catherine, their daughter and their Australian Shepherd “Godfrey,” and enjoys sailing, renovating historic houses and restoring classic sports cars.
