Born and raised in the Great Lakes State of Michigan, Roger Blaugh grew up in a resort community very much like his beloved Southampton, where he has enjoyed a home for over 40 years. After attending the Royal Academy of Music and Trinity College in London, Roger moved to New York and began a career on Wall Street. In the 20+ years that followed, he made his mark in the specialty field of real estate syndications for such blue blood firms as Reynolds Securities (Dean Witter Reynolds), L.F. Rothschild, Unterberg, Towbin and Thomson & McKinnon, Auchincloss, Kohlmeyer (Kemper Financial). Roger continued his education and followed his passion for architecture at Parsons/The New School of Design, focusing on the design and planning of residential and commercial interiors. It was Roger's unique background in international studies, finance, and design that saw him rise to the top of his game as Vice President, Real Estate Management and Development, for a New York-based manufacturing firm with global real estate interests. With over a quarter-century of weekend living on the East End as the carrot, Roger pulled up stakes and moved to Southampton in 1999 to follow his dream of living near the best sailing waters in the world. Today, Roger brings his extensive background to the job as one of Corcoran's best qualified agents. Roger is an Associate Broker in our Southampton Village office. He helps other agents as a contributing member of Corcoran' Agent Training Advisory Council and our Commercial Real Estate Group. Roger serves as a Board Member for the Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center, established in 1949 to enhance the education of the underserved children of Bridgehampton, The North Sea Citizens Advisory Committee ('CAC'), representing the interest of the residents of the North Sea Hamlet before the Southampton Town Board, and the Lake Missapogue Association, who have overseen the water quality of Big Fresh Pond since the 1940s. Roger is a member of Slow Foods East End and the Parrish Art Museum. He previously served as Chair of the Board of Architectural Review & Historic Preservation ('ARB') for Southampton Village, as well as the forward thinking Mayor's environmental advisory committee, affectionately called the Southampton Advocates for the Village Environment ('SAVE'). He also aided the village by assisting in the organization of 'SouthamptonFest', now in its 10th hugely successful year. As past Commander of the United State Power Squadron Peconic Bay Chapter, Roger shared the joys of boating with their squadron's membership, stretching from Montauk to Orient Point. His interests in introducing sustainable gardening and farming practices to school aged children, took him to service on the board of Slow Foods East End; the very focal point of farm-to-table and farm-to-restaurant education in our area and around the world. Roger also helped organize Southampton Village's first African-American Museum as its treasurer, aiding in fund-raising for their new museum on Hampton Road in the village. Public service side, Roger's mission has been to create for his customers "a real estate experience in which our services are seamless and effortless and where distances are meaningless."
