Ulster County Real Estate:
Featured Area - Saugerties

Saugerties in 2009 was named one of the 10 coolest small towns in America by Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel magazine, with the quote “Saugerties can feel so much like home for weekenders that some have made it official.”

One of those Cool places in Saugerties to live is the Subdivision of Barclay Heights. Why? It's still affordable and surrounded by couples, young and old, new families and families who lived in Barclay Heights since it was built in the 1950's. Yes, 1950's and still looking young due to the pride of ownership of its many homeowners.
I have the pleasure of just listing a 1800 plus square foot Barclay Heights Colonial home on .21 acres located on Highland Avenue. Click here to view.

Ulster County Real Estate - Old HurleyWhen I think of Old Hurley, New York, a picture of a Norman Rockwell print comes to mind. Here you are in this little Hamlet that almost appears to be frozen in time. As you walk along the Main Street you will see antique shops, old stone homes, the Hurley Heritage Society Museum and down around the bend sits the Dutch Reformed Church.

Some of the activities you might enjoy include a wonderful small town summertime parade, a Corn Festival, and a guided walking tour just to name a few.

Another great addition to the town of Hurley in recent years is the development of the Hurley Rail Trail, built on the former O&W railroad bed in Hurley. This trail which is great for biking, jogging, or an afternoon stroll, runs along Route 209 all the way to the

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.

It's 2010 - Let's Get organized & Sell That House!Ulster County Real Estate

As a full time, consistent top producing real estate agent specializing in Woodstock, Hurley, Kingston, Stone Ridge, Saugerties, or anywhere in Ulster County, there's one thing I can say that you should keep in mind.... A clean, organized, fresh smelling home means dollar signs in the New Year.

In our current market, buyers have so much to choose from that your house must stand out. Most buyers will give a home the thumbs up, or down within the first few minutes , sometimes even seconds during a showing. Do they see clutter before they even hit the front door? Do they smell a dog or a couple of cats? Is the litter box in view? Is it clean?

When a seller says the home is in "as is" condition, that's

How do you take a 1970’s ranch style home and improve it without breaking the bank? I have several tips that I have used on my own home and will be sharing those with you over the up and coming months. Even if you’re not interested in selling your home right now, I still hope that you enjoy reading about some of the creative low cost updates that I have done myself.

To give you a bit of background, I purchased my home in 2006 after it had been on the market for over a year. The house basically sat because it was so outdated on both the interior and exterior that most people wouldn’t even make it past the front door.

I was told by most of my friends and co-workers to pass on it all together. I loved the location, that was not a problem. It was on a quiet

In a previous blog entitled “Ulster County Real Estate is Brimming with Old Stone Houses and Historic Landmarks” I make mention of several of Ulster Counties many Historic Landmarks from New Paltz and High Falls in the southern part of the county to Woodstock and Phoenicia in the northwestern sector.  Most of us can list a number of historic landmarks we view during our daily routines. 


As one of the many Uptown Kingston business men and women who walk past the corner of Wall and Main Streets, I pass the Old Dutch Church on a regular basis with a walk to the bank or post office.  Yet, I always enjoy passing that corner and viewing those reliable red tulips and flowering dogwood trees in the spring or the snow covered graveyard in winter months with the
