Halstead Hamptons Agents Recognized with Company-Wide Awards

Halstead, a New York, New Jersey and Connecticut residential real estate brokerage firm, has announced that three of its Hamptons agents have been recognized with company-wide awards based on their sales performance and demonstration of excellence in 2018.

The awards were presented by Philip O’Connell, Halstead’s managing director of the Hamptons, on January 23. John Scott “JT” Thomas was named Hamptons Agent of the Year, Ann-Marie Horan was named Agent of the Year, Southampton, and Timothy O’Connor was named Agent of the Year, East Hampton.

“They are each industry leaders in the region and this recent recognition is a true reflection of their consistent high performance,” Mr. O’Connell said. “Although the 2018 market was challenging, Halstead Hamptons offices were up for 2018 and we are poised for significant continued growth in 2019.”
