Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

I am a local expert and a hard working, professional agent who will help you buy or sell your home efficiently. I am a tenacious negotiator and advocate for my clients best interests. I am proficient in the online and social media marketing that is crucial to selling your home. I hope that you will get to know me and my work ethic, humor, creativity, and resourcefulness and that together we can work to buy or sell your home and have some fun doing it.

Before embarking on my real estate career, I owned a dog walking and dog training business in Brooklyn for 15 years. My employees and I took care of more than a hundred pets a day as if they were our own. Through dog training I was able to help improve the lives of many dogs and their people. I valued relationships over profit, and I became one of the most respected and trusted people in the local community.

After several years of weekending in the Hudson Valley and Catskill regions, my husband and I fell in love with the natural beauty of the mountains and streams, artist communities, culture, and culinary excellence of the area. We decided to take a leap of faith and move our lives upstate. During the process of selling my home in Brooklyn and buying a wonderful home on seven acres in Catskill, I became fascinated with real estate and soon after became a real estate agent.

Business is all about relationships, and relationships are all about trust. It is my goal to take the time to build a strong, trusting relationship with every client, and to get them the best price for their home. I look forward to being of service.
