Don't let those people into my house! In a market where buyers have been almost non-existent for several years, is this such a strange thing for a seller to say? You would think after their home has been on the market for months, and sometimes even years, they’d just be happy to have a warm body...
I've always said the folks living in the middle Hudson River Valley (the Warwick, Greenwood Lake, Florida area) know how to have some good. clean wholesome fun. For example, we've always enjoyed  the summertime evening "concerts on the lawn" in these cozy communities. We love going to the winerie...

The property is situated adjacent to the Sky Drive Sub-division of luxury $1M +  properties. Gently sloped at the b...
A Hudson Valley home owner whose house I listed recently asked if he really needed a For Sale sign in his front yard. For whatever reason, he didn't want the neighbors to know he was selling. The fact is, a yard sign is your second most important marketing tool. (The first being your internet pre...
My mother always used to say that she'd rather a shack with a view than a mansion without. So when you pair both gorgeous views with beautiful properties you know you have a winner! Here is a short video of some of our current listings all of which feature beautiful views around the Hudson Valley...
Those who know me know that I believe in parking karma when it comes to living in New York. That is, if you truly believe a primo parking spot exists right outside your destination, it will. If you believe it, you will park! My karma is based on the theory that most people assume there's never a ...
