A longtime resident of New York City and the Hamptons, Margaret has balanced the vibrant city with the serene seaside for nearly 20 years. Peppered throughout the year with holiday retreats to Colorado, she enjoys a year-round trifecta of city, beach and mountain living.
Formerly an online retail buyer at Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, she transitioned this design sense into property renovation projects, cultivating a network of contractors, architects and designers. As a real estate investor herself, she manages multiple properties, understanding the perspectives of both the buyer and seller.
Originally from Southern California, Margaret graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles. She is a proud parent and serves on the Board of Trustees at the school. She is also a member of the Board of Directors at a luxury condo development in Colorado.. Margaret finds herself very lucky to call both New York City and the Hamptons home.
"We don’t know what we would’ve done without Margaret. She has a keen eye and instinctual approach to matching a home to her clients’ needs. She knows what you want before you know what you want. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. More than a realtor, Margaret is a guide, a confidante and a voice of reason. She only looks out for the best interest of her clients 100% of the time and that’s what makes her stand out above the rest. We are so happy in our new home and she remains as a valued resource that has guided us throughout the home purchase process from beginning to end. We can’t thank her enough." - Jiannina and Enzo
"Margaret helped me to find my dream home! I met Margaret at an open house and although I wasn’t interested in the house she was showing, I liked her energy and honesty so much that I asked if she would work with me to find a house. After giving her an impossible list of likes, dislikes and price target, she worked hard to find a needle in a haystack. When my offer was rejected on what I thought was the house for me, she gave me confidence that my house was still out there so I stood firm. When I was ready to give up, she showed me a house that checked every box for me and then some. We worked creatively on the offer and our timing was perfect. She guided me through the stressful buying process while the pandemic materialized and was able to
quickly line up summer rentals as soon as it was furnished. She is also very connected as far as finding local trades for all the projects related to owning a home in the Hamptons and all of her referrals have been great. I highly recommend Margaret for her professionalism, transparency and honesty, and to top it off she is a pleasure to be around!" - Erin
"We were fortunate to have Margaret represent our interest in purchasing a home in Southampton. Margaret navigated us through many nuanced concerns and was very diplomatic in directing our attention towards other suitable options. She identified the optimal home based upon our desires, but more significant of her representation; Margaret continued to monitor our needs and concerns after the closing. Her expertise along with her design advice has been invaluable. Margaret does her homework, she is prepared and knowledgeable of the many issues affecting the value of a house, but more importantly she is aware of the important issues affecting a family’s home and lifestyle." - Ann and Peter
"Over the years I’ve dealt with both buy side and sell side real estate agents and I’ve never worked with someone so diligent, professional and knowledgeable as Margaret Lewis. She was with us from the beginning of the process to post purchase and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. If you want to buy in the Hamptons, you would be wise to call Margaret Lewis." - Bill
