I am a native of Dutchess County and have watched it grow tremendously over my life time. Dutchess County is a remarkable place to live. It is right on the banks of the Hudson River with mountains on both sides. Each season is gorgeous in its own right. Before going into real estate, I was a high school English teacher for 20+ years. This was great while it lasted, but I needed a change. Real estate became the next love of my life professionally. I am affiliated with Genesis Heritage Real Estate in Hopewell Junction. I have gone the route from working with a large corporate conglomerate to a small independent agency. Ihave joined Genesis Heritage Real Estate because I believe that "the personal touch" is the most important aspect of any transaction. We give both buyers and sellers our undivided attention. When I start out with a buyer I immediately find out what they need, what they want and what they can afford. I won't waste anyone's time showing houses they either can't afford or don't want. Everyone wants to feel important, in whatever they are doing. This stays in the front of my mind at all times. When dealing with sellers, I keep in touch with them on a weekly basis to share the good, the bad and the ugly of the previous week. If your seller isn't contantly informed he/she can't make an intelligent decision on the sale of his/her home. I like to think that I'm the force (along with the market) that helps drive any decision because I am the professional in the field; however, it is the seller that makes the decision and needs all information in order to do so
I deal specifically with residential real estate, both attatched and detached in the area of Dutchess County within a 10 mile radius. A am a licensed associate broker and hold two designations: ABR, SRES.
My preference is resale and I work with all types of buyers from the first time home buyer to the empty nester. I have sold homes at both ends of the spectrum and have many satisfied customers. I also enjoy listing homes that have a tendency to be different, whether in the layout of the home itself, its location or the actual property it is on.
Whether dealing with sellers or buyers, I truly believe that their home is their treasure, not just an MLS number.
Associate Broker, ABR, SRES. I totally enjoy working with buyers in any price range. It's the thrill of helping people find just the right house for just the right price.
