What makes your business stand out?
A family run business owned and operated by Doris and Patrick Kennedy. We have been in the real estate business for well over 20 years and 16+ years on Main Street in Bay Shore across from Northwell/Southside Hospital. Our one and only location. Our roots are right here in the local community where we personally reside. Both Doris and Pat are Islip High School Alumni, with 3 beautiful girls attending the same district. Our connection to the community is what makes us stand out. We have in-depth knowledge of the communities in which we sell homes that far surpasses those agents not from the area. This is a full time 24/7 business for the Kennedy family.

We specialize in all areas of real estate: Residential, Commercial, Rentals, Foreclosures, Short Sales & Property Management Services. Truly a dedicated team of energetic Realtors to provide you with the personal attention you deserve in the home buying and selling process.

Our business is highly referral driven. We have worked with multiple generations of local families that keep coming back to a name they know can be trusted with their most valuable investments. Converting young families who started out as local renters into first time home buyers is powerful and rewarding. Many of which we have personally watched grow up locally.
