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.
Caryn resided for 10 years in Palo Alto, California. 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 and friendships she created while in Palo Alto, she always knew New York was truly home.
After enjoying the Hamptons on weekends and time off with her husband and two sons for over twenty 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 is an absolute perfectionist in everything she does but especially when it comes to taking care of others and listening to what they want and need. She cannot wait to hear from you, meet you and take this real estate journey with you.
In her free time Caryn enjoys meditation, yoga, reading, seeing Broadway shows and spending time with her husband and two grown sons.
