Managing Your Estate

Fourth of July ushers in the best of the Hamptons season, and there’s no need to spend the weekend dealing with house repair or maintenance issues. Call one of the East End’s premier estate management services to take care of all your home needs.

Ketcham Estate Management is ready to make “owning a home in the Hamptons easy” for you. Dennis Ketcham, estate manager, assures me that he “will take care of everything” you need so you can relax, go play golf, tennis, swim and not have to worry about who is taking care of what in your summer part-time or full-time residence out here. Ketcham calls it “one point of contact.” He arranges for anything you need done. Ketcham does all the maintenance on the houses he has built with his father for 30 years. Through his house building business, he “developed a client base. What I can’t do, I outsource for the homeowner.” Ketcham does renovations as well, and he serves the entire North and South Forks.

Do you need furniture assembled? Someone to be there for your deliveries while you are busy in the city? Ketcham is your man. Do you need debris removed? Your garage cleaned out? Storm windows out and screens put in? Perhaps you have wood rot? A roofing job to be done? Siding, framing or a complete overhaul this year? Call Ketcham. He will get the job done or find someone who can. Ketcham is your choice if you want privacy, reliability and safety.

Business has been great, Ketcham tell me. “Revenue is already higher than the entire year last year.” Impressive.
