A hard-earned reputation for loyalty, understanding and enthusiasm…experience is the key.
A lifelong resident of Quogue, Gary has been a licensed full-time real estate agent since 1984, is a Past President of the Long Island Board of Realtors Eastern Suffolk Chapter, and knows the Hamptons market well. During his career he has seen the roaring eighties, the stock market downturn and eventual recession of the early nineties, the market crash of 2008, through today's once-again thriving real estate climate.
Gary has matched sellers and buyers for all types of homes from cottages to near-castles. He has overseen sales of complete condo complexes and new home developments, participated in innovative auction-marketing projects and more. Putting buyers and sellers together isn't work—it's my pleasure, he says. Specializing in Quogue South and Quogue North, Gary is experienced in site development, new construction, model home sales and bank workouts.
Whether working with a childhood friend or a CEO of a Fortune 500 corporation, Gary remains true to the hallmarks that define his career: fierce loyalty to clients, total enthusiasm and true enjoyment of his work. An active member of the community, outside the office Gary supports the Heart of the Hamptons annual Polar Bear Plunge benefitting the Southampton Food Pantry.
"I have known Gary for 17 years. He has sold four of my houses during that time. He is knowledgeable about the East End and closes his properties quickly and without problems. He is a friend as well as an associate and I respect his professionalism. He is joining an agency that has his same goals." --Diane Herold.
We have known Gary Knotoff for years. He is really a wonderful and caring human being, who knows his market and is dedicated to his clients first and foremost. He helped us navigate some difficult situations. He was never pushy or overbearing - quite the opposite - he listened to our needs and respected us. I will never forget how wonderful he was during the purchase of our house, and would recommend him enthusiastically! --Dr. Ulka Sachdev
I have known Gary for over 30 years. When I needed to sell my home rather quickly, I immediately called Gary. He was professional, courteous, kind and knowledgeable. We were able to sell in a few months thanks to Gary's dedication and hard work. He was there from listing to closing and never steered me wrong. Gary is highly recommended. I wouldn't recommend anyone else when it comes to buying or selling your home in the Hamptons. --Meghan Phillips
Gary helped my husband and me buy our first home in Westhampton Beach. He was extremely knowledgeable on the area, knowing the inventory and showing us comps in our price range. Gary was so patient throughout the process, showing us many homes before we found one we wanted to make an offer on - he was never pushy at all and we genuinely felt like he was in our corner. He guided us through the bidding and then ultimately the closing process seamlessly, helping connect us with real estate attorneys and building inspectors in the area. We would highly recommend working with Gary and plan to do so again in the future! --Nina Marino and Bryan Chao
Gary is charming, knowledgeable, thoughtful, a great communicator, and very knowledgeable about Hamptons real estate values. He resolved every issue that we encountered in the process of purchasing, and even recommended an excellent inspection engineer and a terrific lawyer for our closing. His demeanor and his in-depth knowledge are very reassuring. We have recommended Gary to our friends who are seeking to purchase a home in this area, and they are very appreciative of him, as well. --Iris Vivian Goldman, MPS, LCAT

Gary's business acumen regarding the real estate market and management of clients is quite extraordinary. He is loyal, dedicated and intelligent, and he can focus on a problem for its resolution and successful outcome. --Frank Maddalena
Gary was able to identify very clearly what my personal needs were, and was tireless in showing me at least fifty homes in the pouring rain! After closing Gary was extremely helpful. I have never seen anyone go this much out of their way regarding service, attitude and professionalism. --Ann C. Sullivan
