Business Insider – A Hamptons real estate brokerage firm just got the ultimate revenge on a pair of Wall Streeters. [via Curbed] Broker Rosehip Partners, which has the blog Hamptons Marketwire, writes that Jon Terracciano, an attorney, and Jon Shechtman, a hedge fund portfolio manager, tried to cheat one of its agents out of earning a $3,000 commission fee for a summer share. Terracciano is a Wall Street attorney, according to his LinkedIn. You can see Terracciano partying it up in the Hamptons in this Guest of a Guest photo. Shechtman is a portfolio manager at Axonic Capital, according to his LinkedIn. Anyway, the pair inquired about some high end rental properties promising “all cash for a quick deal,” according to the blog. We’re told that they were asking about 25 homes in the brokerage firm’s system and an agent worked really hard making calls and arranging tours. The agent took the two Jons to some houses last Saturday. He felt confident that they would put in an offer. According to the brokerage, the pair were leaving handwritten notes in the homes telling the homeowners that they would like to do an all cash deal directly with the owner, while cutting out the agents. Two homeowners found the notes and turned them over to Rosehip Partners, says the firm. We have tried reaching out to both individuals to get their side of the story. We will update this post as warranted. The notes have been posted on Rosehip Partners’ blog. They gave us permission to run them.
So a bunch of people in New York are all up in arms about this lawyer and finance dick trying to cheat real estate brokers out of their commission. Which is definitely a cheap ass, slimy move. But people are acting like these Hamptons summer house real estate brokers are fucking angels from heaven. The only people on the planet earth worse than these 2 assholes are real estate brokers who charge you thousands of dollars for doing absolutely nothing other than maybe opening a locked door for you. I mean I try to avoid brokers and agents as much as humanely possible. Its nearly impossible, but if I’m moving apartments or looking for a summer share I try to cut those fucking snakes out with absolutely no remorse. They’re absolutely the most useless assholes in existence.
When you’re a hot shot lawyer and hedge fund portfolio manager, you should probably just pay the 3 grand rather than risk getting your face plastered all over the internet by websites calling you cheap assholes. But lets all dry our eyes for the fucking Hamptons real estate brokers. The best part was the Stoolie who emailed me – “These dirtbag wallstreet bros thought they could pull a fast one on a hardworking real estate agent.” Hardworking real estate agent, thats cute. Even Business Insider “They worked really hard making calls and arranging tours.” What planet am I on? They’re cashing in on absurd commissions while bougie Hamptons people toss their money around with reckless abandon. Just as bad as the shady assholes trying to snake them.
