Before joining Compass, Stephen Hartigan worked for fourteen years with high net worth families first as an award-winning chef then as an estate manager with his highly respected staffing consultancy company, honing his skill set to understand his clients’ needs and reach their goals with the utmost effort and integrity. Originally from Ireland, Stephen worked in the fine dining world, named Young Chef of the Year in Ireland before rising to top tier restaurants in Paris, London and New York. He continued working with A-list celebrities and bold-faced names as their private chef and estate manager in the Hamptons, New York and Beverly Hills.
Stephen has been a trusted personal ally of leaders in entertainment, business, fashion and industry known for his loyalty, discretion, and ability to deliver results. In real estate Stephen spends the time with his clients and customers to exactly understand their needs be it how best to market their property for sale or how to find the dream home or rental. His attention to detail, ace negotiating skills, knowledge of the luxury world, personal connections and willingness to go above and beyond make him a valuable asset.
Stephen also has experience in buying, developing and renovating Hamptons real estate, giving his clients and customers the benefit of his personal knowledge. Stephen finds the same level of ambition in Compass with the company’s drive to make their agents the best in the business and arm them with cutting edge technology, analysis, marketing tools and a vast national network. He lives and works hand in hand with his fiancée Alyra Hoffman, also a Compass agent, in Sag Harbor, ready to share his enthusiasm and guidance for the best the Hamptons have to offer.
