Donielle Cardinale McKinnon

Real Estate Salesperson



You could say that this business is 'in her blood'. Donielle comes from a long family history spanning four generations, and over 100 years in both commercial and residential real estate investment, development/redevelopment, and management. "In my family, the fundamentals of real estate investment are taught, even before, learning to walk or talk" says Donielle. Her family was originally from Brooklyn and has been spending their summers on the North Fork of Long Island since the 1940's. In 1978, they decided to transform their much loved Nassau Point summer home, into their primary residence.Although Donielle has had the pleasure of enjoying family residences in Hilton Head SC, Palm Beach Fl, and Manhattan, she explains that her "HOME" has always been the North Fork. Donielle appreciates the importance of waking up to see the water from your bedroom window, beaches, boating, vineyards by the dozen, horse farms, open space, golf courses, wonderful restaurants, fresh seafood from our local waters, produce from a variety of farm stands and all of this, with such close proximity to the City. "The North Fork is such a special place. I can't imagine wanting to live anywhere else", says Cardinale. She has also grown up with a passion for horses and has competed extensively, on a national level. She now shares this passion with her daughter, who is also an avid rider. This understanding of the needs of "horse people" also allows her a valuable perspective in the sale and purchase of equestrian properties.Along with her career and being the mother of two children, Donielle continues to be a very active member of the community and its various organizations. This, along with her deep roots, gives a thorough understanding and clear perspective of the North Fork and the people who love it. Over the years, she has owned and operated several other successful businesses. Her background in construction, interior decorating and event design, equips her with the creative knowledge, insight and contacts to prepare your property for sale or help you turn a new house into the home of your dreams. Donielle specializes in waterfront and luxury homes. However, she is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the market.This is a woman with a lifetime of experience in widely varied aspects of real estate, an expansive social and professional network, as well as sincere knowledge of both the residential and commercial markets. Donielle and her team go above and beyond to bring their clients from the preparation through completion of every deal they broker. Her clients and customers agree "Donielle is someone who makes you feel both confident and comfortable, right from the start". You will be challenged to find a broker who is more knowledgeable and professional, to assist you in your real estate sale or purchase.Associate Real Estate Broker, Certified Buyer Representative, Associate Director , A North Fork Top Producer, Gold Circle of ExcellenceMember of LIBOR, NYSAR & NAR
