"Buying or selling one's home should be a great experience, not just a transaction, but the beginning of a relationship." - Elena & Joyce

Lucky to Live Here Realty is built on the skills, passions, and track records of top selling real estate agents who call the North Shore of Long Island home. We're not just your Realtor, we're part of your community, with a passion for helping and educating sellers and buyers.

Elena D'Agostino and Joyce Mennella met and partnered in 2011. After having the vision of a Lucky To Live Here™ lifestyle they decided to branch out on their own to create Lucky To Live Here Realty in 2015. Both share the passion of promoting and supporting communities surrounding Cold Spring Harbor, Lloyd Harbor, Huntington, Centerport, Northport, and beyond. Through the Lucky to Live Here™ motto, clients are invited to events to expand their circle of friends and discover more about the area. Between Elena and Joyce's wealth of knowledge about real estate and their passion to help buyers transition to a community, Lucky To Live Here Realty was born.

Looking ahead Elena & Joyce want to go above and beyond a real estate company. While selling homes, they are also promoting local businesses and the lifestyle surrounding the Five Harbors area. Currently focusing on blog writing, monthly event calendars, and social media to reach the community. In the upcoming years their goal is to branch out and inform more people why we are all truly Lucky To Live Here™.
