Just over a decade ago, Donielle Cardinale was trying to navigate life as a single mother with two very young children when she decided to try her hand at real estate.

“I needed to redirect my career in a way that would utilize the combination of my knowledge, skills, contacts and past experience while still allowing me to live and work here on the North Fork, in the community that I love, so that I could be here for my children,” she said.

Her previous experience included work in retail, event planning and food and beverage services.

“Honestly, I did not expect to fall in love with the business the way that I did,” she said.

Today, Ms. Cardinale, 42, is an associate broker at Cardinale Group — Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty in Mattituck.
