Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty (DGSIR), one of the nation’s leading realtors and the top-ranked luxury real estate organization serving Long Island, Brooklyn, and Queens has officially opened its new Huntington office in downtown Huntington Village. This new office replaces its longtime Huntington office located about a mile outside of the village.
Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty Chief Executive Officer Deirdre O’Connell cut the ribbon with help from President and Chairman of the Board Patricia J. Petersen and Huntington Sales Manager Melissa Stark. The trio was flanked by local government officials, representatives of the Huntington Chamber of Commerce, and many members of the Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty family.
The new state-of-the-art office, ideally situated on the corner of Main Street and New YorkAvenue in the heart of downtown, will reap the benefits of high visibility and heavy foot traffic in this destination village known for its popular restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues.
“The opening of our new Huntington office is exciting on so many levels, not the least of which is its outstanding location,” enthused Deirdre O’Connell, Chief Executive of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “It’s the first of its kind, designed to be truly new in every way, from its technology to its layout and overall feel. It is welcoming, comfortable and flexible to meet the needs of all who visit or work here. It’s a place to gather, collaborate, and build relationships.”
Melissa Stark, sales manager of the Huntington office, echoed O’Connell’s thoughts and added, “An essential part of our culture is our commitment to the local community and that includes partnerships with village and other businesses. And that relationship starts with the cutting of the ribbon.”
For the opening celebration, local restaurants and retail businesses including Prime, The Ivy, Crabtrees, Madison’s Niche, Endo Ethos, and the newest iteration of the popular bookstore, Book Revue donated raffle prizes. The proceeds of the raffle will benefit the Daniel Gale Foundation, which in turn will make donations to Long Island not-for-profit organizations. Additionally, Book Revue has set up a pop up bookstore within the Huntington office, and will be open for business there throughout the month of August.
Every month the office will host a different business, event or not-for profit. In September, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty will be accepting donations of food and funds for Island Harvest, and in October, supporting Pink Aid’s work to assist breast cancer patients. The office will regularly host the Long Island Board of Realtors’ Daniel Gale Young Professionals Network meetings as well.
“It is very exciting to be play a role in the action on Main Street and be a part of something new and fresh, every day,” added Melissa Stark. “We invite our neighbors, friends and passersby to stop in and say hello. We can’t wait to meet you.”
