William Fantini has recently joined Sotheby’s International Realty in East Hampton. An East End native with 28 years’ experience in residential property development, management and marketing, he brings with him a solid understanding of the Hamptons real estate market. Having grown up in Amagansett, William knows the area and surrounding hamlets extremely well and he has a strong connection to the community. As an owner of rental properties in Amagansett and Laguna Beach, California, William’s experience as a landlord gives him an invaluable perspective for providing service to other landlords and their tenants.
William comes to Sotheby’s International Realty with a background in art direction, computer graphic design and illustration. Prior to joining the East Hampton office, he owned and operated a design studio which he started in California in 1994, serving such clients as AOL and Western Digital. In 2007, William and his wife moved back to the East Coast where he continued his business, splitting time between Manhattan and Amagansett. His commitment now is to bring those marketing and technical skills afforded him by a career in design and computer graphics to the real estate business on the East End.
William is a graduate of Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, with a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts, majoring in Fine Art. In his spare time, he enjoys surfing, snowboarding and taking long hikes with his wife.
