From Apollo Global Management head Leon Black to Boston Properties boss Mort Zuckerman, the New York City real estate industry is a critical component to the East End scene. In fact, no fewer than 14 of the 100 most powerful people to descend upon the Hamptons this summer, as compiled by Hamptons magazine, are members of the industry.

Power players in the brokerage industry, including Cushman & Wakefield Chairman Bruce Mosler, Corcoran Group’s CEO Pamela Liebman and power broker Susan Breitenbach and Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Chairman Howard Lorber and CEO Dottie Herman made the list. So too did developers Stephen Ross of the Related Companies, David Levinson of L&L Holdings, Billy Macklowe of William Macklowe Company, Aby Rosen of RFR Holdings and Richard LeFrak of the LeFrak Organization.

Finally, private equity figures with big hands in real estate, such as the aforementioned Leon Black and BGC Partners Chairman Howard Lutnick also rank in the top 100 along with hospitality guru Steven Kamali.

But with this weekend marking the unofficial start of the Hamptons season, the real question is which one’s house would be most impressive to visit. The answer: skip trying to score an invitation from one of the real estate pros and instead try for an invite from Renco Chairman Ira Rennert, whose 43,000-square-foot Sagaponack estate is among the biggest homes in the country, according to Hamptons magazine.
