Catskills + Hudson Valley
We split our time between Brooklyn and the Catskills and maintain connections to a deep pool of city dwellers looking for second homes. Our team comes from successful careers in law, finance, marketing and entrepreneurship. Simply put, our level of expertise is unrivaled which is reflected in the fact that we're the #1 ranked Catskills real estate brokerage (as per Google Reviews).
Because we split our time between the city and country, we maintain connections to a vast audience of city-based buyers many of whom we meet in-person. This direct connection gives us a keen understanding of what city dwellers want and are willing to pay for a particular home which ultimately helps us to price homes appropriately.
When selling a home, you want to reach the maximum number of eyeballs which ultimately translates to potentially more money in your pocket. Via multiple distribution channels, we reach a vast audience of potential buyers including:
Because we're a boutique agency, we're not beholden to a cookie-cutter approach. For each property, we develop a bespoke marketing approach that highlights the best aspects of a property and positions it to sell at the maximum price possible.
As a former lawyer at Kramer Levin as well as a long-time contributor to the Huffington Post, I understand how to craft a compelling yet succinct narrative. Conveying the 'why' behind your home can make a big difference in whether potential buyers respond to your listing.
We employ a professional editorial photographer and experienced photo/video drone operator. And we're the only brokerage that regularly employs an experienced stylist (former creative director at ABC Carpet and artistic director at Anthropologie Home) to enhance spaces. As such, our listings are regularly touted as some of the best in the market.
As the only boutique agency based in Accord and one of the few in the Catskills, we support various local charities. And all of the money that we earn goes directly back into the local communities where we live, work and play.
Once you've completed the seller questionnaire, we'll schedule a time to visit your home and answer any questions you may have about the market and the selling process. Shortly thereafter, you'll receive a detailed listing proposal that includes a proposed price range and marketing approach.
As we start to work together, we'll share ways to maximize the purchase price and ensure a smooth transaction. This may include repairs and aesthetic changes that have a direct impact on the quality of the listing and the buyers which it ultimately attracts.
Once listed, our scheduling app will keep you informed of showing requests in real-time. We also regularly host open houses to give us the opportunity to speak directly to potential buyers. Of course, during this time we'll work around your schedule.
Once offers start to roll in, we'll help you understand the terms and ultimately decide which offer is the best to achieve your particular goals.
Once you've accepted an offer, the buyer will arrange for an inspection. Should any issues arise, the buyer may request repairs/credits, all of which we'll help you negotiate.
Once inspection is complete, we'll introduce you to local attorneys that will negotiate and finalize the contract. As the transaction moves from signing to closing, we'll be with you every step of the way and will help shepherd the transaction to closing.
With all of the market uncertainty, it's hard to know if it's a good time to sell. While the national real estate picture looks somewhat bleak, we're still in a low-inventory environment in the Catskills and there is still plenty of demand from city dwellers looking for an upstate escape.
