Real Estate Agent - Coldwell Banker
Long Island is Dan's beloved home. He appreciates the natural beauty of our surroundings, and is often amazed at how he can't resist the outdoors, rain or shine, for a jog or bike ride. The quality of life on Long Island is astounding for Dan from the scenic beaches to the abundance of outdoor activities, the excellent family environment to the community pride. When asked what he loves to do most, his first response is about food! Dining out in the variety of restaurants that Long Island offers is always a pleasure for Dan, who can't seem to pick a favorite from the multitude of choices
