Saunders & Associates Sells Sagaponack Property For $15.5m
First Sale for Seasoned Attorney-Turned-Broker Alan Schnurman
Prior to joining Saunders & Associates, Schnurman was an accomplished trial attorney for many years. After retiring from his law practice last year he signed on with Saunders. The transition from lawyer to broker was a natural one, as Schnurman has been buying and selling properties in the Hamptons for years.
Schnurman is frequently sought after by the press for interviews because of his knowledge and expertise in real estate and law. He has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Real Deal and Associated Press, to name a few. He has been a guest on the Today Show, Good Morning America and CNN.
“It’s not surprising that Alan would make such a big splash on his first deal,” said Andrew Saunders, president of Saunders & Associates. "He's been a lawyer and developer and probably knows as much about real estate in the Hamptons as anyone."
Currently, Schnurman is just one of Saunders & Associates’ savvy brokers at the growing firm, which now boasts over 100 brokers. Recent hires include former Motown Promotion Director, Noel Love, Krae Van Sickle, and Chris Coleman from The Corcoran Group; as well as Vincent Horcasitas, who worked at Prudential Douglas Elliman. Between the firm’s exponential growth in new hires and more than $1.5 billion in exclusive listings, Saunders has become a powerful player in its industry within just four year, and is responsible for 38% of all properties sold from Southampton to Montauk in the first half of 2013 with just 10% of the area's brokers.
