Ulster County Real Estate
So thinking about moving to Ulster County or want to know what it has to offer? This is where the Catskills meet the Hudson.  It’s the closest feeling of being out west next to the Rockies without being out west.  A playground for all seasons, Ulster County has it all. Born and raised here, I really never appreciated this until I grew older.

One of the best things that I personally love about living here is that I am in the country, I wake up every morning to watching the deer walk through my back yard, and on an occasion, I get greeted by a bear, but yet I am only two hours north of New York City so I can get a taste of the city life, two hours to Vermont, and two hours to the beach to catch some rays and feel the sand in my toes.  Everything is so

Ulster County Real Estate And Luxury Homes

ulster_county_luxury_homes_310
Many of you think of a luxury home as being these enormous 6,000 square foot mansions.  Well that may not always be the case.  Now days, especially in today’s market smaller might be better, it might even be greener.  It is what's on the inside that counts, not always on the outside as your mother may have taught you.  Besides, luxury home standards in your community and neighborhood may be much different from the others.

Many seekers of luxury homes are very seasoned and affluent home buyers, ones that are pretty specific about what types of features that they may want or that they may need.  Some examples may be a formal and separate entry way maybe with some type of exotic wood or natural stone flooring. …

Ulster County Real EstateIt's not just about Real Estate in Ulster County..... With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, what do you have planned for your sweetheart?  Well being that I have been married now for almost seven years, have a beautiful four year old, and work as a full time real estate agent, I have very little time to spend with my sweetheart.  So for Valentine’s Day this year i was thinking of a couple of different options.

 First, I was considering staying overnight at a B&B in Woodstock. Laid back and relaxed, go grab an awesome meal walk through the shops, and then spend a romantic evening with my sweetheart.

So now that the holidays are over and the New Year is approaching rapidly…..you look at your spouse and say now what?  What can we do now?  If you are from Ulster County, or anywhere in Upstate New York, then you know that the next few months are usually the rough ones.  It’s cold….It’s freezing….It’s snowing…..You can’t go out side and play soccer, or swim in the pool, or even give your car a good wash.  The days are shorter, and the nights are longer.  So why not try out some different places to eat and shop locally.  Born and raised here in Ulster County, I have had the pleasure to enjoy some of what I think are the best places to eat, shop, and just get lost for the day or as my family calls it “muffin huntin”.

So you would think that after a long week of showing houses throughout Ulster County, from Woodstock to Saugerties to Stone Ridge & Hurley, that I would have not wanted to go and see anymore…….Wrong. After my appointments, I hopped in the car to meet my mother-in-law and her two girlfriends.  We met up at the Tonner Doll Company Store where we gathered our maps, and the list of the homes that we were about to see.
