Having A Broker Is Like......

Columbia County Real Estate



Why Having a Broker Is Like Having A Physician


"Everyone loves the security of having a physician - a professional 'friend' to feely call for advice.  Your personal Broker can work much the same way, and is bound to give you the same loyalty and confidentiality--a whole lot more: valuable information about which home improvements will enhance your home's value, or the best local contractors and repair people.   You'll be kept abreast of the market, and be aware of new listings that might be your next home.  When I moved here, I was lost - luckily, I met a Broker who took a genuine personal interest.  Today I enjoy the same close, ongoing relationship with many of my clients.  You've got a Physician you can lean on - why not a Broker too?"

What Your Neighbors Are Saying


Circumstances in the real estate market dictate that sellers list their homes with agents like us, who will market their properties aggressively. These efforts begin with a market analysis, which involves comparing the home to similar homes in the area that have sold recently, forming the basis of a listing price that appeals to prospective buyers and ensures sellers of a proper return on their investment. Then it’s my responsibility to "get the word out" by advertising on the Internet, in newspapers, in magazines, and listing the property on Multiple Listing Services and connecting with buyers and brokers on the Internet.


Listen to What Your Neighbors Are Saying!

Dear Stephanie,


“Many, many thanks for all the great professional help you gave me in selling my home. I will be singing your praises & telling everyone I know, if they are looking to buy or sell a home, to only consider you & your company!”


Sincerely, Susan, Old Chatham

Dear Stephanie,


“Before we unpack one more box, we would like to say that your attention to detail, from the selection of our new home to the process of relocation, is greatly appreciated. You have made our transition a positive experience we will share with others who are looking for the right place to call home.”


Carolyn & Jeffrey, Canaan

Dear Stephanie,


“We want to thank you so much for your help with the sale of our property in Copake. This is now the third time we have worked with your firm & it has truly been a pleasure. You are always on top of things, very responsive, & most significantly, you have an impeccable knowledge of the market. We look forward to working with you again one day & seeing you soon.”


Warm regards,
Ken & Debra

Aggressive Selling Strategy



Circumstances in the real estate market dictate that sellers list their homes with agents like me, who will market their properties aggressively. These efforts begin with a market analysis, which involves comparing the home to similar homes in the area that have sold recently, forming the basis of a listing price that appeals to prospective buyers and ensures sellers of a proper return on their investment. Then it’s my responsibility to "get the word out" by advertising on the Internet, in newspapers, in magazines, and listing the property on Multiple Listing Services and connecting with buyers and brokers on the Internet. Aggressive marketing increases the likelihood of selling a home in a challenging market. We are on many websites, such as:


ColumbiaGreeneNorthernDutchessMLS.com ~ Berkshirerealtors.com ~ Realtor.com ~ Google.com ~ Trulia.com ~ ColumbiaCountyHomes.com~ TimesUnion.com ~ Hot Pads.com ~ Homes.com ~ Albany.Backpage.com ~ RealEstate.yahoo.com ~  Oodle.com ~ CLRsearch.com ~ Zillow.com ~ NewYorkStatemls.com ~ HotFrog.com ~ Gaylesbiandirectory.com ~ IQRealEstate.com ~ RealEstateActive.com ~ HomeHippo.com and, and, and more......

HINT:  It has never been more imperative that sellers price their properties correctly in accordance with the prices of competing properties and local market conditions.

Your Local Forcast

The real estate market is somewhat similar to the weather. That is to say that it seldom, if ever, happens that one gigantic weather pattern engulfs the entire nation. While it may be raining on the other side of the country or in several isolated areas, you are not similarly affected if the sun is shining where you live. Similarly, while national media constantly discuss the national housing downturn, not all areas are affected similarly. The real estate climate on the coasts may be different from that of the nation's interior, and there may also likely be differences between metropolitan, suburban, and rural areas. In short, all real estate is local. Ask a real estate professional about your local conditions.
The challenge in the housing market is for sellers to price their home to meet the local market, and for buyers to realize there is no phenomenon that will send prices to new lows. No matter what your real estate needs are I'll be there for you. For further informatoin on all of the services available to you, contact the office or visit my website today. I love what I do and it shows.
Conventiently located, let me show you what the right realtor can do for you. Buying a home or selling a home can be a challenging endeavor. Let me help you make it an exciting adventure.
I am fully licensed in both NY & MA & bring with me skills for service & dedication.

Your Hopes, Your Dreams....Our VantagePoint


Hint: All you need is one buyer to buy your home. If personal circumstances are forcing you to sell, it is just as likely that some potential buyer in your area needs to find a place to live for reasons of his or her own.
