Seashell Real Estate in Southampton is celebrating its 40th anniversary
Principal broker and owner Joan Tutt established the company in 1981 and is joined by her daughter, associate broker Lorell Tutt. They have 62 years of Hamptons real estate experience between them.
Joan Tutt began Seashell Real Estate to serve the North Sea, Roses Grove, Deerfield and Water Mill areas. While other agencies were concentrated in Southampton Village, Ms. Tutt opened an office in North Sea on Middle Line Highway, which was a dirt road at the time. She has remained at the location for four decades.
Ms. Tutt noted all the changes she has seen in all that time: Middle Line Highway was paved; 5-acre zoning was introduced where it was previously half-, 1- and 3-acre zoning; mom and pop agencies became corporate franchises; computers replaced paper and pens; and SUVs supplanted station wagons.
Seashell Real Estate has continues to serve the greater Southampton and Water Mill area â€” including two sales this year on Middle Line Highway itself â€” while also expanding its reach to East Quogue, Montauk and Shelter Island.
