Douglas Elliman’s expert agent Adam Hofer (adamhofer.elliman.com) gives insight into his favorite Hamptons hangouts and routines, along with some buzzy real estate news.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE AREA OF THE HAMPTONS, AND WHY DO YOU LOVE IT?
I hate to have to isolate, but if I had to pick one it’s probably Sagaponack because it embodies the rich spirit and history of the Hamptons as I have known and know it. There’s a perfect assimilation of centuries-old farms and farmhouses as well as the most magnificent new builds. It’s quiet, quaint and beautiful.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO EXERCISE OR WORK OUT?
When I do exercise I run, and I love to make a loop around Lake Agawam running through the village and the estate section. The streets are perfect for it. A few years back, I ran the Hamptons half marathon there, and it was awesome.
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO COFFEE OR JUICE SPOT?
Sant Ambroeus—I can be found there almost every day at some point getting my coffee, holding court or having a meeting.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE OR AREA TO SHOP?
Depends—if I need an outfit, Ralph Lauren; walking around and shopping with the family, Sag Harbor.
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOME STREET OR ADDRESS?
Something with character and charm on Daniel’s or Crestview.
WHAT NEIGHBORHOOD ARE YOU LOVING RIGHT NOW?
Sticking with my story, Sagaponack South, but I’ve always loved the estate section in Southampton as well.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS SEASON?
The enthusiasm shared about being in the Hamptons is palpable, and I love it. I’ve been out here my whole life, and I get excited when people fall in love with the area. It makes it that much more special. The last two years have driven that enthusiasm and love to new heights, and it’s going to make for a beautiful summer.
