Chris Carney has an exceptionally thorough and unique knowledge of East Hampton and surrounding areas. Chris was born and raised here, and has been an East Hampton resident most of his life. He is also a business owner with a popular personal training facility right here in East Hampton Village. Added to that, he’s an avid athlete who has literally run or biked down every street in the area for his sport, as well as for a very good cause. Chris is responsible for starting the annual Soldier Ride rehabilitative bike event in the Hamptons (and now nationwide) to benefit the Wounded Warrior project.
Because he knows the market so well and has so many connections who rely on his expertise, Chris decided to put his insight to even better use as a dedicated real estate professional. He has a keen understanding of the area’s building and buying trends, traffic patterns, construction activity, even the things that characterize a community like the shops, schools, services and recreation.
A graduate of East Carolina University in Greenville, NC, Chris moved to New Zealand after college and played rugby for the U.S. National Team. He traveled far and wide as well, but was glad to return to East Hampton to the place he loves the most. Chris got his real estate license 10 years ago, inspired by his passion for his hometown and by the success of his mother (also a Corcoran broker).
Chris lives in East Hampton with his wife and young son. He is still heavily involved in Soldier Ride, a project that has raised over $4 million and grown to 16 regional rides throughout the U.S. His highly recognized charitable work has also resulted in ringing the bell at the New York Stock Exchange and being invited to the White House several times, most recently last year.
