Q: Tell me about the different areas in Long Island that you represent.
A: I grew up in Huntington Bay, raised my children in Lloyd Harbor, and have spent my whole life on the North Shore of Long Island. While I list and sell primarily within the town of Huntington, I travel wherever and whenever my clients need me from the South Shore, the Hamptons to New York City and in between.
Q: I know that the North Shore is becoming an increasingly popular area for people to settle—why is this?
A: The North Shore is seeing an increase in popularity because of the incredible lifestyle it offers. You can spend the day on the beach and be in Manhattan for dinner the same night. The shoreline, with its coves, bays, and inlets, sustains myriad wildlife and stunning natural beauty. Opportunities for all kinds of water sports, including sailing and kayaking, are everywhere, and we have amazing housing stock from colonial-era homes to brand-new construction. The North Shore, with its charming villages, bustling towns, beautiful beaches, golf courses, and parks, really has something for everyone. We are seeing buyers ranging from first-time buyers to downsizers, people trading within the community, and new transplants from New York City and the South Shore.
Q: What are the popular restaurants and shopping destinations in the area? What about schools?
A: Throughout the North Shore, you will find all kinds of shopping, including high-end luxury stores, smaller boutiques, and unique, quirky thrift shops. Go for burgers and beers at Finnegan’s in Huntington, or travel a little further down the street and end up at Piccolo’s, where Italian classics reign supreme. Oyster Bay, Northport, Locust Valley, and every other village along the North Shore provide a variety of other options.
