Being raised in a picturesque farming community in Roxbury, NY, nature has always been an important part of my life. I moved to Manhattan for twenty years, got married, traveled and had two wonderful children. As I watched my daughters get older it became very clear to me that nature needed to be a constant in their lives, as it was in mine. The American writer Edward Abbey wrote "Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread." I believe that.
I dreamed of the lifestyle I grew up in and found that in the Hudson Valley. After visiting family and old friends in the area for many years, we decided to make the big move to living here full time, and bought a 200 year old farmhouse in New Paltz, NY at the base of Mohonk Preserve. The friendly towns and their people, farmers markets, streams, ponds and beautiful country roads offered much to explore and the proximity to NYC made this the perfect location .
I offer you 20 years of experience in real estate and superior knowledge of the area and the local real estate market. Whether it be a country cottage, beautifully restored farmhouse or mountaintop retreat I am here to give you personalized attention.

For fifteen years I have consistently been a top producer in Ulster County. Whether you are a buyer or seller, I will keep you well informed of the current real estate market so that you are able to make confident decisions.
My professional philosophy is simple: Strive to have satisfied clients that feel confident referring me to their friends. How do I accomplish that? With open and honest communication. With patience, persistence, and an in-depth knowledge of our local real estate market.
I preview properties as they come on the market so that I can answer any questions you have about a particular listing or the area it is in. Through my extensive network I am aware of properties that may be for sale but are not listed. I continually take classes to stay abreast of the ever-changing trends in real estate. I have recently been awarded the Certified Residential Specialist designation (CRS), the Accredited Buyers Agency designation (ABR), and the Luxury Home Marketing Specialist designation (CLHMS).
I love real estate. I live and breathe it. An excellent listener and tenacious negotiator, I have represented buyers and sellers from $100,000 to $4,000,000 and am equally comfortable with both. I know the area, I know the product available, and I know the value.
Buying or selling a home can be the largest financial transaction and decision of a lifetime. You want a savvy, full time, educated professional by your side; You want me working for you. I will leave no stone unturned in finding you the property that calls your name!
I look forward to working with you.
