GARDEN CITY, NY - Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, one of the nation’s leading realtors, recently acquired Taylor Warner Realty, Garden City’s oldest independent realty company. Daniel Gale Sotheby’s President and CEO Patricia Petersen made the announcement.
Daniel Gale Sotheby’s acquisition of Taylor Warner mirrors the strategy it has used successfully in Garden City and other key markets on Long Island -- growing primarily through the addition of highly respected and knowledgeable local experts.
“We couldn’t be more pleased that Taylor Warner chose Daniel Gale Sotheby’s to team with and carry on its legacy of the highest standard of professionalism, integrity, expertise and local knowledge to the Garden City community,” said Ms. Petersen. “We’re looking forward to creating a new legacy of success with them.”

Taylor Warner Realty began serving the housing needs of Garden City in 1919, and since 1952 has been owned by members of the same family. Robert J. Krener bought the agency from his uncle Robert Hogan in 1972, and his wife, Mary Opulente Krener joined Bob in 1977.
“When we decided Taylor Warner needed the current technological tools and resources of a larger firm to continue to best serve homeowners and buyers, there was only one firm, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s, that met our requirements,” said Bob Krener. “The merging of the two firms' culture and mission are a perfect fit, complemented by Daniel Gale’s technological expertise and marketing reach."
The Taylor Warner team has joined the Daniel Gale Sotheby’s office at 102 Seventh Street. Claudia Galvin, who manages that office for Daniel Gale Sotheby’s, expressed great enthusiasm for the merger. “When Daniel Gale Sotheby’s entered the Garden City market, it was through a merger with another highly respected and established local agency, Dougall Fraser. Like Dougall Fraser, Taylor Warner is well established in the community and has great sales people. I’m glad that they chose us.”
