Chris Nuzzi was named vice president of Advantage Title to lead client services in the five towns of Long Island, N.Y.,’s East End —Riverhead, Southampton, Southold, Shelter Island and East Hampton. The Advantage Group offers title insurance and related real estate services. The appointment of Nuzzi marks a continued commitment to Advantage Title’s expansion of commercial and residential real estate services across the Hamptons, Shelter Island and North Fork.
“Chris Nuzzi has deep local knowledge and an understanding of the complexities inherent to East End real estate transactions,” said Joseph Willen, president and chief executive officer, The Advantage Group. “Combined with Advantage’s track record and substantial resources, we welcome the opportunity to deliver unparalleled title services to the attorneys, developers, buyers and lenders on the East End.”
“Our goal is to be a resource that enables our clients to make their property investments confidently,” Nuzzi said. “As the price of real estate here continues to rise, so does deal complexity and the need for secure financial risk. Advantage Title’s in-house legal counsel, a team of five, has the knowledge, experience and underwriting relationships our clients require for their transactions.”
In 1996 Nuzzi began working for the Suffolk County Executive’s Office. Having recently finished his second term as a member of the Southampton Town Board, and combined with his experience in the title insurance industry that began in 2007, he is familiar with land use practices and the laws that govern them. Nuzzi is also knowledgeable about the area’s environmental and preservation needs, zoning regulations and landmark real estate transfers. The life-long South Fork resident balances a deep appreciation for the area’s quality of life while alsobeing sensitive to the challenges businesses face.
“I joined Advantage Title because of its strong reputation for client service,” Nuzzi said. “It is a highly respected, top-notch organization with Long Island roots. It is large enough to handle highly valued and complex transactions while giving the personal attention critical to each client transaction.”
Nuzzi earned his master’s degree in public policy from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
