According to the Wall Street Journal, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein has finally sold his home in the Hamptons. After several previous attempts to sell with other real estate firms, Blankfein listed the property three months ago with Douglas Elliman Real Estate agent Susan Breitenbach.
The home located on Parsonage Lane in Sagaponack was first listed in 2007 for approximately $14M. The home was listed again in 2015 for $16.996M with subsequent price reductions to $15.9 and then $14.5. Susan Breitenbach of the Douglas Elliman Real Estate listed the property in February 2016 at $12.995M and now has the property under contract. See WSJ article by Candace Taylor
