A highly motivated energy broker and an economics enthusiast, in the 1980s the New York Mercantile Exchange was Ed's playing field. Continuously re-inventing his style of brokering oil and natural gas with the changing times, Ed cultivated a successful career for 25 years. In 2000, while maintaining a foothold in the financial district, he began to dabble in luxury real estate development, taking on high-end Hamptons multi-million dollar projects. Ed brings to his real estate practice extensive experience of finance and business management with Man Group, MF Global and then as founder of Pinnacle Derivatives. Ed's desire to be in the Hamptons coupled with his love for real estate led him out east.
Opportunity struck in 2018 with a prominent Hamptons builder, Ed took on the role of Project Manager and Safety Coordinator. With experience in all facets of the real estate market and an in-depth perspective of Hamptons property value, building and expansion as well as an exceptional eye for envisioning dreams, brokering real estate was the most natural progression.
A life-long athlete, biking, working out, playing ice hockey and twisting in hot yoga, Ed continuously seeks adventure. Ed has easily adapted to beach life, recently taking up surfing as well as indulging in daily ocean swims. In his limited spare time Ed gives back to the community by coaching winter youth ice hockey which is mutually rewarding.
Well-connected and extremely knowledgeable, Edmund Gaetjens listens acutely and pinpoints what people want and how to locate it expediently, condensing the hunt. Customers and clients can rely on Ed's expert guidance in finding the perfect Hamptons home, investment, or the right buyer for their property. Edmund is based in Saunders' Bridgehampton office.
