Caryn was born in Far Rockaway, NY and raised on the Gold Coast of Long Island. Caryn's parents were born and raised in Brooklyn where Caryn spent much of her childhood visiting her grandparents. Her grandfather owned a wholesale paper and twine business on Havemeyer Street in Williamsburg for over 40 years.
While growing up Caryn always heard her great-aunt Judith tell great stories about the wonders of buying and selling real estate. Her great aunt was one of the largest owners of real estate in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. She primarily owned commercial buildings that she leased out to business owners on long-term leases. Her Aunt Judith was a savvy businesswoman who taught Caryn the importance of being informed, fair, and an overall good human being in all real estate business dealings.
In 2007 Caryn moved to Palo Alto, Ca with her husband and children. She resided in the beautiful Silicon Valley for 10 amazing years. After a 20+ year career as a Inclusion Advocacy and Curriculum Modification Specialist, Caryn ventured into the world of tech by becoming a contract worker for Google. And although Caryn cherishes her memories/experiences and friendships she created while in Palo Alto, she always knew New York was truly her home. Her California friends always used to say, "You can take the girl outta New York, but you can't take the New York outta the girl :)."
After enjoying the Hamptons on weekends and time off with her husband and two sons for over twenty-five years, Caryn is now a full-time resident based in East Hampton. She has teamed up with her husband John to sell luxury and commercial real estate.
Caryn holds her Bachelors in Fine Arts (B.F.A.) from Long Island University and her Masters of Arts (M.A) from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
Caryn and her husband have two wonderful grown sons, who she considers her greatest accomplishment in life. She cannot wait to hear from you, listen to what you are looking for and get to work to help you find that perfect home or commercial building.
In her free time Caryn enjoys meditation, yoga, reading, seeing Broadway shows and spending time with her husband and two grown sons.
