Native to Port Washington for over 70 years, Bonnie continues to maintain an extensive wealth of local market knowledge. She is well-versed in and embraces the art of buying and selling, standing unrivaled by her competitors. It comes as no surprise that Bonnie is a Charter Member of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty’s Gold Circle of Excellence and holds the prestigious honor of the “Hall of Fame,” one of only eight members in the entire Daniel Gale family. Starting out at the age of 26, Bonnie began her real estate career as a salesperson and after two years, became a Licensed Associate Broker. Within 10 years she became the manager of the Port Washington office. A position she excelled in for 16 years. For the next 10 years Bonnie acted as the Director of Business Development for the firm responsible for recruiting for all their offices. Since then, Bonnie has come full circle and is presently listing and selling once again. Born in London, she was the first G.I. baby to come to New York after the second WWII, on Memorial Day, 1946. Raised in Port Washington by parents who knew the meaning of service and giving back to the community, Bonnie went on to emulate the same values in her real estate career. This focus on service and building relationships with locals led to strong community roots, loyal relationships, and tremendous success in real estate. Clients consider themselves fortunate to have Bonnie represent their needs, and peers are grateful for her mentorship and support. Her commitment to the North Shore community and her dedication to charitable causes have afforded Bonnie the opportunity of serving on the Board of Directors of: The Guild of St. Francis Hospital, The Friends of Art, Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington, the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation and Port Washington’s Landmark on Main Street and the Knickerbocker Cup Foundation. Dedicated to building a reputation of integrity, trust and professionalism, she provides her clients and customers with the quality service that is essential to their real estate needs. One of the most important aspects in Bonnie’s life is spending time with her four grandkids. An avid sailor most of her life, she meets with friends and family regularly to enjoy the waters of Long Island’s Sound, as well as serving on the Board of Manhasset Bay Yacht Club.
