Relocation & Referrals

Recognizing that buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions a person makes, Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty has assembled an experienced, well-respected and highly credentialed staff that stands ready to assist you.

If you are moving to Long Island or Queens we can assist you with area tours and information to help you identify the perfect town for you. We will help you find the best Realtor with the area expertise you require as well as introduce you to trusted local vendors to assist with the ancillary services moving, maintaining and selling a home can require.

If you are leaving Long Island, or your real estate enquires involve another part of the United States, or another country, we can assist you in finding the right, trusted, local sales associate for your particular needs.

We have a fully trained Corporate Relocation team led by Jodi Biernacki, CRP, GMS. Our team is ready to assist with any individual relocating employees as well as group moves on or off of Long Island and Queens.

We rebranded and improved the corporate affinity model to create the Daniel Gale Advantage Program. Often copied, never equaled, this program provides unique benefits to membership organizations and groups including financial incentives for using the program.

  • In 2016, Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty relaunched and expanded our corporate employee benefit/affinity program. The Daniel Gale SIR Corporate Advantage Program provides employers and organizations an opportunity to offer their employees/members a rebate on eligible real estate transactions. Once an employee/member registers with the Advantage Program coordinator, DGSIR will source the best agent for that employee/member’s particular needs, anywhere in the US (where rebates are allowed by law) and will stay involved in the Real Estate transaction to assist in the smooth completion of the transaction. We will also put the employee/member in touch with our Concierge Home Services Vendor partners, all of whom offer special discounts/services to DGSIR clients.

    This program can easily be implemented at any interested corporation, membership organization, alumni group and the like. It is a no-cost, no-obligation program offering interested parties A+ Real Estate service along with a financial rebate which is scaled to reflect a properties’ value.
