Sea Cliff-based Gilligan’s Realty’s motto is “Experience the Difference.” Operators Eileen and Sarah Gilligan seem to take that to an extreme, at least when it comes to their outgoing phone message.

“You have reached Gilligan’s Island — Gilligan Long Island Realty,” a dramatic male voice announces. “Whether you are buying or selling on the Island, Gilligan will not leave you stranded and he is here to help you. Please leave a message after the tone. While the Professor and Maryann cannot get back to you, Eileen or Sarah will.”
