The rich history of North Shore’s Long Island’s hamlets and villages, with its tight-knit communities and lush sycamore and maple tree-lined neighborhoods evoking an Old English nostalgia, is something Mary Frances (Muffin) Sauvigne knows a great deal about. Originally from Manhasset and Port Washington, she has spent many years immersing herself in their civic and cultural goings on, raising three children and participating in social programs and worthwhile causes that strengthen the backbone of these communities. After working in Capital Market Sales and Trading at Solomon Brothers, Muffin became a
full-time realtor in 2006, which was a natural step for her. In this role of assisting clients with the sale and purchase of a home, she is able to continue being a steward of the evolution of families in a place that has nourished her own.
While Muffin works out of the Manhasset Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty’s office, she is familiar with the real estate opportunities and lifestyles along Long Island’s North Shore. As Certified Buyer Representative and Senior Real Estate Specialist, she brings a studied and professional approach to all of her clients, whether they’re first-time home buyers or baby boomers moving on to new adventures. Muffin also enjoys the intricacies involved in estate sales, and feelsprivileged to personally witness the preservation of the architecture and history of her hometown. Considered to be an excellent listener and acutely responsive by her clients, Muffin is known for successfully connecting people to just the right home for them.
Along with her real estate prowess, you can ask Muffin anything about community events and gather solid information about where you’re planning to establish roots. With all of her involvement in the community of Manhasset, serving as a board member of her childrens’ Montessori school, being a past president and a board member of the Manhasset Women’s Coalition for Breast Cancer, raising over $200,000 for research and local outreach, and leadership in Plandome Women’s Golf Organization and her local parish, she is well connected to important family and business resources. Coming from a large family in Manhasset, she can easily introduce new folks to her community, connecting them to jobs, relationships, and great restaurants and shopping districts. While Muffin is often described as a loyal, deeply-committed Manhasset steward by her family and friends, she loves to get out of town every once in a while, having visited 40 states in the US. If you haven’t met her yet, you may have seen her on one of the many golf courses around town; a place where she ditches technology and relishes the simple pleasure of a relaxing round with old and new friends.
