Local elected officials and business leaders joined executives and staff of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the brokerage firm’s new Huntington office Wednesday.
After several decades at its office at 187 Park Ave., the firm relocated its Huntington headquarters to a 2,800-square-foot office at the corner of Main Street and New York Avenue.
The new space at 263 Main St., which was formerly occupied by Ann Taylor Loft, will be home to about 50 sales agents.
As part of 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. Raffle proceeds will benefit the Daniel Gale Foundation, which will make donations to Long Island nonprofits. Additionally, Book Revue has set up a pop-up bookstore within the Huntington Daniel Gale office that will be open for business throughout August.
The new office plans to host a different business, event or nonprofit each month. In September, Daniel Gale 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 opening of our new Huntington office is exciting on so many levels, not the least of which is its outstanding location,” Deirdre O’Connell, Daniel Gale CEO, said in a company statement. “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.”
Daniel Gale has nearly 950 real estate sales agents and brokers and 29 sales offices in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn, according to the company.
