“Meet the team that is changing the game when it comes to servicing the Long Island and Queens real estate market, simultaneously. The Stanco-Misiti Team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate is growing every day and was created with a clear vision in mind.

“We found a void in the industry to fill and we have done so quickly and effectively. The ability to supply a high level of service to sellers and buyers in both these regions, Long Island and Queens, has put us on a path that no other agent has really done before”, says team leader Michael Stanco.

Sellers place a lot of confidence in them to guide them and every decision made is in the client’s best interest. Buyers often seek out this team out to not only find the right house but to properly negotiate the best price and terms.

Michael Stanco has been a strong player in the real estate game for quite some time. He has been an integral part of some of the most prestigious property, land and homes sales in his 16 year career.

An alumni of the New York Stern School of Business and a graduate from the masters program at the NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate, Michael has gained the respect of his community and colleagues, and has always looked at real estate as more of a lifestyle versus a job, given that he grew up in the business and also helps run a successful development and construction company with his father, Les Stanco.

Before Michael Misiti started selling real estate, he owned and ran successful businesses in the sports industry, including a renowned tennis academy, trained world-class athletes and was the head coach at the university level. With multiple degrees from Fordham University, his acumen in running prosperous companies has catapulted him into the real estate business and is constantly working to brand the team and grow its market share. Having lived in both Queens and Long Island, he brings a unique perspective to servicing the client’s needs.

Ludmilla (Milla) Stanco, with her experience, integrity, dedication and knowledge has had a stellar real estate career on the North Shore of Long Island for over 25 years. She has set new sales records and standards making her one of the most sought after brokers and marketing experts for exclusive homes and developments. Her steady stream of repeat clients is a testament to her work ethic and a credit to successful deals she has put together.


Social media for a new generation of marketing and branding has given the team a new outlet in which to promote their properties and business. Instagram, Facebook and YouTube have brought in unique opportunities to reach an audience on another level. Property Spark recently recognized The Stanco-Misiti Team as having #30 Best Social Media in Real Estate.


They have a special background in new construction development deals. Investors have looked to this team to guide the process from start to finish. From initial selection of the site to actually working with the developer to create the type of residence that will attract buyers and sell for top dollar, this team is well equipped to handle all aspects of a New Build.

In 2016, the team set a 10-year price record for single family home sales in all of Queens County with a deal over $4,000,000 in Douglaston. The following year in 2017, the team accomplished one of the top 5 sales in all of Nassau County with a new construction sale over $5,100,000 in Upper Brookville. But they will be the first to tell you that they work in all price ranges, not just the high end. Their mind set is that each client and deal is important. Referrals are a big part of their business.

The team is a full service one-stop shop for all things real estate. They cover every aspect and is designated as being in the top 4% of the entire company at D ouglas Elliman Real Estate, which is the largest residential real estate brokerage in New York and boasts over 7,000 agents in over 118 offices nationwide. Besides Long Island and Queens, they do a lot of business in Manhattan too.”
