Lisa is amazing! She went above and beyond to help answer every detailed question we had; she altered her schedule for many last minute visits. Having grown up in the neighborhood we were interested in buying; she was very knowledgeable providing information on town groups/events, regulations, etc. She event went to the house the day of my closing to take last minute photos that we needed. She was available day and night via text, email, phone to provide the best possible solution possible. She was the first to officially welcome and congratulate us as new home owners with personal baskets for my whole family. She will be a staple in our lives and we are incredibly grateful for her in helping our dream come true. Highly recommend her! We are forever grateful to you Lisa!


James provided us with exemplary client service from the moment we first contacted him all the way through closing on our first home. He was responsive and understanding of our needs, and was able to find the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood for our family. He made our home buying experience stress-free and pleasurable by always providing us with his friendly expertise. I highly encourage anyone seeking to buy or sell a home to contact James and his team of consummate professionals at Cow Harbor Realty. They're truly fantastic. Thank you, James and Cow Harbor Realty!


Jim is an honest, knowledgeable and caring agent who took my husband and I under his wing and made our first-time home buying experience enjoyable. He really made us feel like family and immediately got a sense of our needs. He was quick to schedule showings and always available by phone, text or email. Jim is extremely flexible and was able to accommodated our busy schedules. He even went as far as meeting us in the office to sign a contract at 10 pm one night and then negotiated our offer while marching in the Cow Harbor Day parade!!! Jim is truly a gem of a realtor and we are so happy we found him. We are currently in contract for our dream home Thanks to Jim!

From the moment we walked into the office and struck up a conversation it was smooth sailing. James was a good listener as we discussed our ideas and feelings about selling our home. We had little experience in the process, but James outlined his office's role in facilitating the marketing and selling of our house. Once the ball got rolling we progressed steadily towards our goal.


Phyllis is wonderful! She is patient, kind, and actually cares about her clients' happiness. It was a pleasure working with her, and we would recommend her to everyone, especially first time home buyers who need to be walked through the process. Phyllis is very knowledgeable about the areas she shows as well as the home buying process. She is a genuine person who we would love to work with again in the future.


Patricia Izzo is one of a kind. Her interest in seeing that we get the best house for the best price in the best neighborhood was above what we expected. Cow Harbor Realty did everything to make us feel comfortable and they are very trustworthy. They know their stuff well!


Phyllis has been truly amazing. I originally was seeking help finding a one bed room apartment where she has helped me for weeks until I changed my mind and wanted a two bed room. She has truly been nothing but patient and understanding. She knew exactly what I wanted, responded very fast and had answers for all my questions. I am excited to say that I am moving into my new place in 2 weeks and can not thank Phyllis enough!! I highly recommend her!


Susan and Terry couldn’t have been more helpful, supportive, and professional throughout this whole process. They guided us from beginning to end, and really had our backs. They were many complications along the way (nothing at all to do with them) and they were very helpful in moving things along and advising us. It was evident that they cared deeply about us getting into the right home for us, and I highly recommend working with them.


Best realtor hands down! My wife and I were truly blessed to have found James! As first time home purchasers, we were completely lost and unsure of what we needed to do, but Jim made the process easy and enjoyable. Both he and his wife Patti went above and beyond to help us find our dream home. They went out of their way to answer all of our questions and made us really feel like part of their family. They always responded quickly to calls and texts and have explained everything every step of the way. It has been a great experience and I can’t say enough good things about them!


Anna's dedication to her industry and clients is infectious. She is focused on providing top quality service in all areas of a real estate transaction and is a pleasure to work with. 5 Stars!


Anna was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was always available to answer our questions and offer guidance no matter what time of day! She went above and beyond to find the home of our dreams. We would highly recommend Cow Harbor Realty and Anna to be your agent. Go with them, you won’t be disappointed!


This realty company is so nice and everyone works hard to satisfy their clients. James & Jeff Izzo do their BEST in making sure that everything goes smoothly. Highly recommended!


The agents at Cow Harbor are terrific. They help navigate the tricky "house buying biz" and are honest throughout the process. Jim, Pat and the entire team truly care about you and make you feel like part of family, not just a client. If you're buying, selling or renting, you should give them a call.


Professionalism, Respect and Know How. Your one stop shop for your new home buying experience.

Jim was an awesome realtor I honestly have nothing but great things to say about him. We put him through a lot and he still likes us! He brought us to every and any home we wanted to see and also suggested a bunch to us. In the end he helped us find the perfect home and we couldn't be happier!


I have been working with Jim for a year now. As an investor, I have worked with many realtors and none has shown me the level of service I receive with Jim. He is attentive to my needs and is always sure to follow up. His assistance and his attention to detail made the purchase of my home move along very smoothly and without incident. His experience in the field makes him a trusted resource on the team of professionals that I use. He works like a friend and partner. I highly recommend his work.

Our first impression of James was that he is personable, knowledgeable and caring. He continued to be very patient with us on our search for a new home. He listened to us and the home we decided to buy was one that he found for us, not one from our own searches. James made the whole process easier. He recommended people from attorneys to real estate brokers to contractors and plumbers. A month after we closed he came to check in on us and to see the progress we made with the renovations. James isn't just a real estate agent that fights for you but also a friend that cares for you even after it's over.


We have sold our home with James Izzo and we have also bought our new home with him. James is reliable, punctual, creative, experienced, polite and cultured. He easily finds a way in really complicated situations in property deals. Our family have sold and bought already more then 12 properties, and we are happy now to do it with James Izzo. He is not just as agent - he works like he is friend and partner. James is the first agent who gifts us feeling of complete reliability, peace and quietness.


I had the opportunity to work with Mary Katos when I purchased my first home in Islip and it was a great experience. Mary was very flexible in regards to showing my fiance and I the property during and after work hours more than once. In addition, I felt she gave us some great advice as were first time home buyers so we truly appreciated all the information we could get. Mary was down to earth, knowledgeable, and worked for us throughout the entire process. I would certainly recommend Mary!

I have to say what an asset to your company Phyllis Coglietta is!

Phyllis is committed, dedicated and determined to find the house of her client's dreams!

She goes above and beyond by listening to her client's needs, doing her research and always maintaining open lines of communication!

She is fully knowledgeable in all aspects of her work and the houses she shows.

She truly is an amazing, kind, caring, patient, ethical and honest person that refuses to give up and get her clients into "their forever home".

Excellent Realtor - knowledgeable and patient with new buyers! She knows the area and really looks out for her clients best interests! A true professional! Honest, hardworking and diligent. I refer everyone I know to Phyllis.

I will be moving back to NY in September 2018! I have been working with Agent Phyllis Coglietta to buy a home for me and my family. I have never met an Agent so caring and dedicated! Phyllis has worked very hard to make sure to show us homes that are in our budget and what we are looking for! She has made all of us very comfortable, and without worry! We are very thankful that Phyllis became our Realtor! I will be recommending her to everyone I know!

Where do I even begin? Phyllis is an amazing, wonderful, caring, agent. I don't know where you found her but you are the luckiest company to have such a dedicated employee working for you. She has spent endless hours trying to find us the perfect home. She tirelessly sends us houses as well as takes us out to look. I feel like she is more a friend then just an agent out to make a sale. She's very knowledgeable and I am blessed to have her looking to help my family find the most amazing home. I feel like when we do find the perfect home it won't be complete without Phyllis coming over to join our family for dinner. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to have such a wonderful person find of our Dream Home.


Susan Salzmann and the team at Cow Harbor Realty were knowledgeable, patient, and provided my firm with the best office space listings in Northport and the surrounding area. With Susan's help, we were able to find the perfect office. I highly recommend her and Cow Harbor Realty to local business owners.


Susan and Terry couldn't have been more helpful, supportive, and professional throughout this whole process. They guided us from beginning to end, and really had our backs. There were so many complications along the way (nothing at all to do with them) and they were very helpful in moving things along and advising us. It was evident that they cared deeply about us getting into the home, and I highly recommend working with them.


Anna Lynn was extremely helpful and made buying our first home a wonderful experience. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns. Highly recommend!


I was referred to Susan Salzmann by a family friend and am glad I made the phone call to her to start our home buying experience! From start to finish she was amazing! Whenever my wife or I had a question we simply sent her an email or text and within minutes we had an answer to our question. She understood our needs and wants completely and matched us with the home of our dreams! She even made sure we were properly prepared for our closing by setting up a home inspection the day before closing as well as providing us with a simple check list to make sure we had everything we needed with us. Susan also made sure we asked the correct questions to the buyers in regards to the home to make sure our best interests were kept in mind during the negotiation process. I will recommend Susan to all of my friends and family who are interested in buying or selling a house! It was truly Smooth Sailing with Susan and Cow Harbor Realty!

Susan helped me a lot when searching for my low budget house. She is very professional and I rate her 10 out of 10. She is excellent. If I need anyone for my real estate needs or for my friends I will definitely refer them to her.


My wife and I had a great experience working with Susan and Terry during recent months. We recently closed on our new home and love it. We first met Susan and Terry back in July with no intention of moving, just shopping around!  Go figure!  

Please extend our gratitude and if we are ever in the market again, we will be sure to reach out to your team.  


James (Jim) is the best. Truly one of the best people, not just realtor, I have ever had the privilege of meeting. He goes out of his way to make this feel like a family buying experience, and I would highly recommend Jim and his Cow Harbor Realty company.


I went into contract on the purchase before I was in contract on my sale. Once I had a buyer for my home the people I was buying a new home from had problems with the home that they were purchasing (via a different agent, of course). Undoubtedly, Jeffrey Izzo was the guiding light throughout. There has never been a recommendation that was so easy to make. If you are buying or selling, Jeffrey is the one and only broker you should be using. I can't say enough good things about him, his family (his father, James, is the owner) and the marketing behind them.

Phyllis was great to work with throughout our apartment search. She helped us target apartments that met the criteria we were looking for and was patient with us while we viewed multiple apartments each time we met with her. She was well aware of the market prices and gave great advice that led us to make a well informed decision on our new home. I would highly recommend working with her. Thanks again Phyllis!

Phyllis was a pleasure to work with. She was very efficient and determined to find the best apartment for me and my wife. She showed us 10 different rentals. We never waited on her arrival, she was always at the potential rental property prior to our arrival. Also worked well with fellow listing agents which was nice to see.


Patricia Izzo is one of a kind. Her interest in seeing that we get the best house for the best price in the best neighborhood was above what we expected. Cow Harbor Realty did everything to make us feel comfortable and they are very trustworthy. They know their stuff well!

Phyllis was great to work with. Her knowledge of the the area was very helpful. We viewed many homes. The one we wanted was in contract already. However when the deal fell apart Phyllis swooped in and sealed the deal for us! Phyllis has helped us with each step and is still helping with connecting us with local contractors. A+ Highly recommended


Phyllis is everything that you're looking for in a real estate agent. There were no family ties or preexisting relationship before being contacted by Phyllis. As I was viewing a few homes of interest, I selected 'contact agent' and within 5 minutes I had received a call from Phyllis. It didn't stop after that first phone call; she made herself available at our requests - no matter what hour of the day or what day of the week. She introduced us to Collab, a really cool platform that allows you to interact with your agent at anytime. There is a feature with Collab that allows the agent to make suggestions on homes of interest and Phyllis was very active with this feature - which was really helpful because we would periodically have new houses to view courtesy of Phyllis. Phyllis was proactive and more importantly responsive, which is a mandatory trait in today's day and age. If you sent a text, you received a text back within 5 minutes. So when Phyllis lists in her bio that she gives 110%, she is not bullshitting - she means it. I did not get to use Phyllis throughout the entire home buying process due to reasons completely out of Phyllis's control, so for me to take the time to write a review should say something about Phyllis's work ethic and character. I will reiterate my opening sentence in that Phyllis is everything you're looking for in an agent and I wouldn't write a detailed review if I didn't believe that. I highly recommend her services, you won't be disappointed.

My family and I had a wonderful experience working with Lisa when purchasing our new home. Lisa was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Lisa also made sure to reach out frequently to see if we had any questions, concerns or if there was anything she could do to help us during the home buying process. I would definitely recommend Lisa to others in search of their next home!
