Look up Joe Leoncavallo. He knows CI like the back of his hand and his family grew up here, too.

Islip Terrace is a very small middle income community, it's actually in the East Islip School district, situated primarily just north of Sunrise Highway bordering East Islip to the south and Central Islip to the north (separated by Southern State Parkway). In comparison to other towns IT has fewer foreclosures and short sales, having 43yrs experience in the business in this area I suggest you purchase on emotion and in-person research, rather statistical evaluation.

Hi Diaminds8, I'm not sure what your question is, sounds like you can just call the agent of your choice and get started. Here is a link to the programs guidelines I hope that helps. Good luck!

Due to privacy reasons, and since none of us really knows who you are, an owner's name shouldn't be really be posted on an online public forum; however, you can check local public records, tax records, ask a neighbor(s), send a note to the address with your contact information, or ask any agent offline... ... more

The 2011 common charges in Park Row range from $219 to $273 for a single family townhouse. This range is based on the size of the units, with the 2 bedroom, 1.5 model, interior style unit being $219 and the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom end unit being $273. There are several models in between and the 2-family townhouse are more expensive. Common charges cover things like landscaping and snow removal, overnight security patrol, pool attendents, community maintenance and services (like lights, garbage pick-up, sewers, water service, road repairs), as well as some maintenance features on the exterior maintenance of the townhouses themselves (notably, roofs and siding). ... more

Central Islip is conveniently located between 2 railroad lines, the Ronkonkoma line and the Babylon line. The Central Islip RR station is at the corner of Lowell Avenue and Suffolk Ave. The Babylon line stop just south of Central Islip is called the Great River Station. It is located at the corner of Connetquot Ave and Hawthorne in East Islip. The Central Islip Courthouse on Carlton Avenue is just east of both of these stations, as is Touro Law College and the Long Island Ducks play ball near the Courthouse. There is a beautiful shopping center on Carlton Ave. across the street from the Courthouse. Buslines and Taxi's service the surrounding area. By car, Central Islip can be reached from Southern State Parkway, the LIE and Sunrise Highway.

Central Islip does not go south of Montauk HWY, that town is Islip or East Islip. Both of those towns are decent places to live. Especially East Islip.

Thank you everyone for your help ;) We ended up buying a condo in another town, SMALLER than the one in Central Islip, but better neighborhood. We also ended up using a diffrent agent, but again our agent was the listing agent. I guess I can't learn ;p

Joe Sorrentino answered:
In NY State, If you look at the DOS (department of state) Agent Disclosure you will find that when any agent has substantive contact with either a buyer or a seller, they first need to review agency disclosure with you. You have the right to full representation if you choose. You can also work with an agent who represents the buyer as long as there is informed consent on your part. In other words, you know that he represents the seller and he is looking out for the seller's best interest. If you are OK with that and are savvy enough to develop your own offering price and have him just present your offer to the seller, that is perfectly fine. Dual agency is not an option in my mind. He has already established an agency relationship with the seller before meeting you so, for this transaction, he should be a seller's agent. Remember, even though an agent represents the opposite side, they still have to treat you fairly, and be honest with you. With internet buyers now, we seeing a lot of direct dealings that may result in a better deal depending on what arrangement the agent has worked out with the seller.
I would be curious to know your decision and the outcome.
