Hamptons Real Estate

Douglas Elliman announced that Noble Black & Partners, the firm’s #1 large team in New York City by GCI (gross commission income), and #2 team nationwide by GCI and Volume, has officially expanded its reach into the Hamptons region with the addition of local experts Averitt Buttry and William Schumann. Headquartered in Douglas Elliman’s Sag Harbor office, the team will offer advisory and representation throughout the Hamptons — from Southampton to Montauk.

Operating out of Douglas Elliman’s Sag Harbor office, the team will offer comprehensive advisory and representation services across the Hamptons, from Southampton to Montauk. The expansion aims to provide boutique residential advisory services focused on clients’ long-term financial success and lifestyle aspirations.

Noble Black, Jamie Gagliano, and Glenn Davis founded Noble Black & Partners to deliver strategic advisory, sales, and new development services. The team plans to leverage Douglas Elliman’s extensive resources and its global partnership with Knight Frank Residential for its clients.

Noble Black expressed his enthusiasm for the expansion, “The Hamptons represent a natural extension of our New York City business and a personal home for me over a decade.”

The expansion follows the team’s record-breaking sale of The Claxton House in Sag Harbor, co-listed with Elliman’s Erica Grossman for $14,950,000. The property, designed and owned by interior designer Bryan Graybill, went under contract in less than two weeks. Rima Mardoyan Smyth brought the buyer to the deal.

Averitt Buttry, a licensed attorney with a background in litigation, has focused exclusively on the Hamptons real estate market for 12 years. He resides in Southampton Village and is active in various civic organizations.

With over $3 billion in individual sales, Noble Black is a leading New York City broker, known for his client-first philosophy and strategic sales processes. He has a long-standing connection to the Hamptons, residing in Sag Harbor.
