Testimonials

I can honestly say, that each time I sit at the closing table, I find myself sitting with people who have also become friends. I'd like to thank everyone who has awarded me the honor and pleasure of entrusting Cardinale Group with the opportunity of handling the sale or purchase of a property. This business is all about a few simple things.... knowledge, professionalism and .....personal relationships. I take great pride in all of those aspects of how I do business, but most valued, are the relationships I build with my customers and clients.

                                                              

  • I have professionally interacted with residential real estate brokers for over 25 years. I have given Donielle my highest rating. Her skills and expertise are readily evident: strong work ethic, very well informed concerning local customs and practices, held in high regard by her fellow real estate professionals, a vigorous negotiator, candid and forthright in her client interactions, congenial personality, readily accessible, a workaholic. Notwithstanding the foregoing, I was highly impressed by her willingness and capacity to be a good listener and to implement my instructions faithfully. Last, her experience in interior design is a valuable enhancement to the value of the advisory and brokerage services that she and her team provide.

  • This confirms that I would highly recommend Donielle Cardinale as a real estate broker for the purchase of you new home or the sale of your existing. I have known Donielle for several years and consider her both a friend as well as an excellent broker. I consider Donielle to be reliable, stable, and considerate of others. Donielle is hard working but more importantly, a deal maker. She has repeatedly been able to get both sides of a transaction to come to amenable terms. Her creative thinking is what sets her apart from other brokers and have kept deals alive in situations that seemed hopeless. I feel confident in recommending Donielle to be your broker, no matter which side of the fence you’re on. Please feel free to contact me for any further information you would like that may help you in your process.

  • Donielle was prompt and got it done. I had bought a house that was not listed on the market and she helped me through a challenging purchase. She knew just who to call and how to get it done. I would unquestioningly use her again in my next purchase or sale.

  • Thank you for your patience, because it took a few years but we finally did it. I don't think it would have happened without your help, but here we are, living the dream.

  • My experience with Donielle Cardinale was simply terriffic. She is very professional and there for me the whole time. It wasn't an easy decision to sell my home but she made the transaction easy for me. Her staff are also very professional and they were very helpful. I simply can't say a single negative thing about with my experience with Donielle or Daniel Gale Sotheby's Int Realty. Would I refer Donielle? Without a doubt. she is the best in her field and so is her staff. It's that simple.                                                                                                       - Seller - Linda Cook

  • Donielle is a rare treasure. She had a solid marketing plan for our home and a reputation for excellence. She was professional, smart, personable, knowledgable, friendly and well liked by everyone encircled in our sale. It was a pleasure dealing with Donielle durning a very stressful time and now I think of her as a dear friend. Jillian, her assistant, is a mainstay of the office and a go-to for any help and information. She is friendly, knowledgable and accomodating.

    I would recommend Donielle as an excellent representative for both buyers and sellers.                     -Christine Giuliano

  • We are a BIG fan of Donielle. She was great when we first looked at the property and then guided us through the entire process... all the way to closing. True Professional.
    I would recomment her for either a Buyer's of Seller's agent. She does her homework, is personable, adaptable and thorough.                                                                                                                       -The Thomas Family

I would definitely recommend Donielle and the entire staff as both a Seller's and Buyer's agent, they all listen to the needs of the clients and work well to get what the clients need.

    Thanks so much again for all of your hard work. Bill and I were both very happy with your service.

  • "Donielle is the type of person that doesn't just deliver, she delivers big!

    At the end, of my term as President of the Mattituck Chamber of Commerce, there was only one natural choice to take my place. I knew that Donielle would infuse her drive and creative energy into the Chamber, just as she did with her restaurant, her real estate agency and every challenge she takes on.

    She is a warm, generous person that goes beyond what is asked of her again and again, and can be counted on for whatever you ask of her. She's a great President, an amazing realtor, and above all, a great friend, and I would highly recommend her to anyone."
  • Dear Donielle,
    Thanks for always being there for me.. your help has been a 'god' send.

  • Donielle couldn't have been nicer to work with. We knew our home would sell with her help. Donielle is great, very helpful. Thanks again.

    -Tom & Diane Gatz


  • I found Donielle very informative, direct, and happy. I think every individual at Cardinale had a smile on their face anytime I saw them. Which was very nice to deal with. More importantly Donielle led us to a home that my wife loves (which is the most important thing to me). When it came to negotiating a price Donielle got us the exact price we wanted, which was a nice bit lower than the asking price.

    Based on my experience I would recommend Donielle as a buyer's agent. I have a great home for the price I wanted because of her. Further, when it comes time to sell my home I would ask Donielle to be my seller's agent.

    -Christopher & Sanmarie Pabon


  • Hi Donielle, thank you for everything. There is no way that this deal would have happened without you and all that you did above and beyond.

    -The Crowe Family


  • I would definitely recommend Donielle as a seller's or buyer's agent. The homes she directed us to were on target as far as our budget, location and type needs. She did not waste our time. Her input during viewings was honest and helpful. (As opposed to some agents who act like high pressure used car salesmen.) Donielle would also recognize quickly when things weren't for us. She was always pleasant to deal with. Donielle has a strong list of references for other services and local trades' people. We've used some of her referrals and have been pleased. We would describe our experience with Donielle as excellent. All in all I have to say we are going to miss seeing her!

    -Alfred Gros


  • Donielle is creative, thoughtful and very sensitive to her clients needs. She never doubted that she would sell our home and she never let us doubt it either. She kept us in the loop always. We could not have asked for more. We have already told everyone we knew down there that she is the agent you can trust.

  • Donielle was a pleasure to work with. She has such a nice disposition and energy and she made the experience fun. She gained our complete trust and we appreciated her professionalism, enthusiasm, and thoroughness. We considered her a friend by the time we closed.
  • For anyone looking for a Top Notch realtor, you are looking in the right direction when you have Donielle Cardinale on your side. My wife and I found Donielle to be intelligent, knowledgeable, go-getter who delivered the results we needed. We are extremely pleased to have chosen Donielle as our realtor.

    -Bob and Debbie Bales


  • Donielle is knowledgeable, hardworking and easy to work with.  She is not afraid to tell you what you need to hear, even if it is not what you want to hear. She embraces creative tension, which in our case led to excellent results. She thinks out of the box to come up with solutions. She really knows the high end market! All in all, we had a great experience and would highly recommend her to others.
  • My experience working with Donielle Cardinale was first class all the way! Donielle is different than other agents I have worked with in the past. She listened to me and didn't try to push me in any direction I wasn't comfortable with. My experience was nothing but professional. When I needed to talk to her she gave me her full attention and called me back promptly. I would absolutely recommend her as a buyer or sellers agent.  In fact I have already recommended her to several people and I have hired her to sell my house after I move into my new home.

  • Special thanks for the great job that you did in getting the house sold and letting us get on to the next chapter of our lives without worrying about all that failing to do so would have entailed. We both feel like the investment that we made in hiring you, was absolutely instrumental in getting the house sold as quickly and at as fair a price as it did. And your expertise was highlighted by the fact that (a) we had offers almost within days of changing the price to the level that you originally advised and (b) the buyer profile you described ended up being spot on.

    I know myself well enough to say that for many, I would not be an easy person to work with. But I felt like the four of us made a really good team. This helped get the house sold and made the experience as painless as possible. So in brief, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  

    It goes without saying that we would be happy to be references for you at any time.  If you ever have anyone considering listing with you who is on the fence, please have them call or email me and I will provide a glowing recommendation.

  • I will buy another house from you just to experience dealing with you again. I will never be associated with another realtor!
  • I am now the proud owner of a beautiful home on the Long Island Sound. I owe it all to Donielle...

    ...I really had no intentions to buy on the North Fork. After seeing three properties, I thought OK one more. And that was it. "love at first sight". It took me literally five minutes to walk in the door, look at the view, and I knew I was home. Donielle understood what I was looking for. She kept the "best for last". After speaking on the phone for less than 10 minutes and spending an hour together looking at properties, I had found what I was looking for.

    I made an offer on the spot. Donielle handled all the negotiations, she showed me comps, help me understand the financing, etc. Donielle recommended an attorney, scheduled the inspection, physically "walked the loans docs to the bank". I closed escrow by power of attorney and Donielle was there representing me at closing and did the final walk through. From the day I saw the house to closing , it took a month.

    After closing, Donielle was still there helping me with a the best plumber on the North Fork to make sure I had the best new water heater installed, etc.

    I am ready to move to my new home next week. I am so excited. Not only do I have the best agent in all of Long Island I have a new friend. I forgot to add that Donielle grew up on the North Fork and has the best connections. If they are not related, they are childhood friends. It is so nice to deal with someone who is so entrenched in the community.

    I really have the best agent in the universe!!!

  • We met Donielle while she was representing the seller on a house we thought might be of interest to us.  Although we didn't proceed on that first house, we were impressed - by her directness, honesty and deep understanding of the real estate market.  She was always available, listened, made recommendations and was sensitive to our needs. Once we found "our" house, she was thorough and accountable in answering our many, many questions and in her dealings with the seller and their agent.  Donielle went out of their way to "track down" and email paperwork that we felt we needed to make our decision.  Her recommendations regarding the process were invaluable.  And that's only part of the reason that we now consider her a friend.  Thanks for everything.

    Donielle as my agent is like a breathe of fresh air! The agents that I've dealt with in the past only see the sale or purchase of your home as a paycheck. Donielle on the other hand loves her job and her clients, and it shows. She has gone above and beyond in handling both the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home. During the interview process of agents I wasn't comfortable with the advice I was receiving. Once Donielle came along I felt very confident that all would go well, she sold my home in 4 weeks at 1.5% below asking price. During the sale of my home she went above and beyond what was necessary to get all and any potential problems worked out so that the sale of my house went through on time with no problems. Between her experience, connections, and patience this process went so easily. When it came to purchasing my new home she listened and understood what I was looking for instead of pushing me on what every other agent had already shown me. She found me exactly what I was looking for within my budget. Donielle's heart is in being an agent but most of all being a friend to myself and all of her clients. Thank god there is someone like her in this busness!!!


  • I was just remembering what a wonderful agent you are!  I love you! You were so amazing to me.  I will never forget it! :)

    As first time home buyers with a young family, Donielle helped us navigate through the real estate world of the North Fork. Her care and attention to our specific needs and interests was only matched by her enthusiastic updates and responsive communication. We were often surprised when our late night emails were met with rapid responses where she was able to accommodate our short notice requests. Her experience with the area, and having young children like our own enabled her to answer many of our concerns about life in the North Fork. During the negotiating process, Donielle continued to provide us with support through her outstanding recommendations for attorneys, inspectors, and mortgage brokers. Where we heard a realtor's work ended with an "accepted offer", Donielle has remained an important resource for our family as our first "neighbor" in the North Fork.


    - Gary and Jessica Kalish
  • I've had the pleasure or working with them on the buyer side as well as the owner side; great support, expertise and overall knowledge of the North Fork market. I highly recommend them for all your property needs.



    - Rob Finora
  • Searching for a house was a pleasant and productive experience after signing on, she introduced us to the North Fork and all that the area has to offer.  They are knowledgeable about the area and provided pertinent information about each of the neighborhoods.  They were always accommodating during our many trips out and they possess the warm and welcoming quality that we have come to know and love on the North Fork.  We gladly recommended them to a friend.

  • "Donielle treats you as if you are family. She finds the house that is the perfect fit for you and your family. During our search for a home there was never a day that went by that we didn't talk. She made the home buying process an exciting process for us!


    - Dawn and Jonathan Rowe
  • Great job Donielle Cardinale! The best agent I have ever worked with! You are a special person. Thank you so very much for working with me!
  • I can't express enough what a great experience it was in buying my new home. Throughout the process, the focus was always about making me happy and the results exceeded expectation. I LOVE my new house! I can't imagine more knowledgeble, responsive, fun, honest and dependable people to work with"


    - Steve Makos
  • Working with Donielle was an absolute pleasure.  It took us 3 years to find the home of our dreams and Donielle was part of the process all along.  We ended up building a new home and she was on top of the builder, the lawyer, etc.  She is always there for us and she has now become a true friend to our family.  Big thank you to Donielle for making our dreams come true.  She's just the best!!!


    - Brian Reiss & Mariya Kemper-Reiss
  • Thank you so much. You have been so generous throughout this grueling process. We want you to know how much we appreciate your help, sound advice and support.

    Even better than helping us buy the house, you set us up with James at CME Construction, the North Fork's best contractor, as an extra bonus.


    - Sandy Russo and Robin Young
  • "The team at Cardinale Realty Group was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend them as buyer's or seller's agents especially for higher valued homes."

    - Bruce Woodruff


  •  

    I just want to thank you for your help on this file, which was certainly a tough one in terms of what can and cannot be done with the property.  I don't hear from most brokers after the memo of sale goes out, except for:   has the contract been signed, when's the closing?
    I do appreciate your help and your willingness to participate in the process start to finish.
