About The Shifman | Flaherty Team

About Us

In a novel approach to Real Estate, Diane Shifman and Kevin Flaherty, decided to unite and conquer. Both Real Estate pros are known for their out of the box approach to optimizing both the experience of their clients and the outcomes of the deals they do on their behalf. 

Diane and Kevin each have a solid foundation in the market, the process, and above and beyond client service. They also know how to enlist each other’s strengths so all bases are covered and covered well. Kevin’s modern marketing skills can really make a difference for clients in a crowded market. He is one step ahead with digital and data, which are powerful drivers in today’s Real Estate landscape. On the ground, Diane is a savvy and creative negotiator, knowing how to land and close a deal. She also knows the often complex town code and zoning terrain like the back of her hand. 

Working with them you get two brains, analyzing thoroughly, brainstorming creatively, and following through meticulously. You also have easy access to one or the other when you need assistance. From rentals to sales, from the initial viewing to closing, whether it’s letting the cable guy in or arranging for a top property manager - this team gives a refreshing twist to full service. 

Diane Shifman

Who says Real Estate is a rat race? Not Diane Shifman. With a can do attitude, a genuine and open demeanor, and a tenacious yet level headed business style, Diane is the Real Estate broker you won’t delete from your phone after a deal is done. 

Diane grew up coming to the Hamptons with her family during the summer and made East Hampton her home in 2004. With a degree in Hospitality and management experience in the restaurant and hotel industry, by 2008 she had parlayed her client-centered skills into a career in Real Estate. Over the years she has developed a well respected business and negotiating savvy, in-depth local knowledge, and the respect of the local Real Estate community as a true professional and pleasure to work with. Diane is known for her ability to successfully navigate complicated and often competitive business dealings with confidence and integrity. 

An avid tennis player, foodie and engaged community member, Diane loves sharing all the Hamptons have to offer with her clients. 

Kevin Flaherty

Born and bred on the East End, Kevin is a natural at helping others make a home, or a holiday, in the Hamptons. His vast understanding of the market from both personal and professional perspectives, has given him great advantages in his real estate career. Working with Kevin is like getting to ask the neighbor who has been in the neighborhood forever, what it’s really like. And when it comes to local contacts, from plumber to organic garden planter, from architects to property managers, Kevin is the guy with the contacts and connections. 

Rental properties are a specialty of Kevin’s and have made him a favorite with buyers seeking an investment property. Kevin is committed to each and every one of his customers, and his approach and style is highly personable and individual. When not at work, you’ll find him in the water surfing or spending time with his nieces.
