Leslie Reingold

Leslie Reingold brings superb experience to her real estate career: experience in architecture, in design, in the performing arts, in photography and filmmaking, and of course in the real estate industry itself.

Leslie grew up in Brooklyn in the 1960s and 1970s in a neighborhood in transition, and the physical and cultural transformations sparked a lifelong fascination with buildings and the people who live in them. She embarked on a journey to seek new experiences, beginning with a BA at the University of Michigan. She returned to New York to work as a community organizer in impoverished neighborhoods, specializing in landlord-tenant relations and community services. That led to a position coordinating national telethons for the United Jewish Appeal.

After going back to school at the School of Visual Arts, she then went to Los Angeles to pursue photojournalism. This led to architectural photography, which in turn led to returning to New York to earn a BS in Architecture from the Pratt Institute. Leslie's fascination with building and architecture resulted in working for companies that developed commercial and residential properties. She was involved with many high-end renovations and build-to-suit office spaces in such well-known structures as Trump Shuttle and the Plaza Hotel as well as Fifth Avenue retail establishments.

Like so many other New Yorkers, Leslie's life was deeply affected by 9/11. In the aftermath of it, she moved to East Hampton full-time to focus on a real estate career. Her knowledge of the villages and hamlets on the South Fork, her dedication to her customers and her tenacity in satisfying their particular real estate aspirations have earned her the respect of both her clients and her peers.

When not immersed in real estate, Leslie is an active volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters and animal-protection organizations, and she does news and arts photography for a local award-winning weekly newspaper. She is continually educating herself on the latest trends in design, building and property acquisitions so that her clients will be on the cutting edge, where all of her experience produces results.
