In a down market, where buyers are reluctant to snap up pricey properties, some brokers are looking to teammates to close deals. Most real estate agents in the Hamptons look for trust, compatibility, and balance when they choose a business partner, according to a plethora of brokers interviewed this week by Hamptons.com. Other brokers are more strategic, recruiting team members that specialize in different kinds of properties and regions. Enzo Morabito, an associate broker with Prudential Douglas Elliman, said he selected his team for their different skills and qualities in the hopes of creating a well-rounded group. “My team members all basically do things better than I do,” Morabito said. Another partnership, Jack Pearson and Cee Scott Brown of the Corcoran Group, has been together for four years. “I am more technically oriented when it comes to generating paperwork and my partner Jack is more into the research,” Brown said.
