Ulster County Real Estate Blog is Alive! - 06/29/08 04:20 PM
So this outside blog thing looks pretty decent. At first word of it, I ran (figuratively) to my ActiveRain account and fired up my outside blog to launch my Ulster County Real Estate Blog. The ActiveRain crew did a great job on the integration. One or two clicks, and my outside blog was cranked up. I uploaded two pictures and applied a domain name UlsterCountyRealEstateBlog.com (obviously) and bam! I was alive with a brand spanking new blog already filled up with all my posts from AR. I am curious to see how the new outside blog will fare in the search (4 comments)
Finally, the Hudson Valley gets their very own Bigfoot - 06/29/08 10:10 AM
Just recently, the fascination of the popular Bigfoot legend has made itself known in the Catskill region of Upstate New York. Recent sightings of creatures believed to be members of the Bigfoot family have drawn the attention of Bigfoot hunter Tom Biscardi. As a kid, I always wanted to believe in Bigfoots and there is still a small part of me that is dying to see some real proof but without my personal inspection of the evidence, I have to rank them up there with UFOs and Ghosts. I do have to admit though, some of what they say it very (5 comments)
Hudson Valley Quality Deer Management Association - 06/18/08 01:13 PM
What part time home owners can do with all that extra land Here in the Hudson Valley, there is a very good second home market made up mostly of New York City residents looking to escape city life to a second home out in the country. One of the most sought-out property-type is the old farm house on a large land parcel. As a Hudson Valley real estate agent, one of the things I do is to prepare the city dweller for their new life in the "sticks". I dedicate a good amount of my due diligence process to explaining the (0 comments)
D&H Canal Show, Stone Ridge New York - 06/13/08 12:01 PM
Local historian Charles William Cullen will be giving a slide show presentation in historic High Falls. The highlight of the presentation will be the now-defunct 135-foot-long suspension bridge/aqueduct that once spanned the Rondout at a location locally known as "The Ledges". The Suspension aqueduct was a fundamental component of the Delaware and Hudson Canal, more commonly known as the D&H Canal. Ground, on the D&H Canal was officially broken on July 13th 1825. After three long years of construction by a team of over 2,500 men, the canal was opened for use in October 1828. The Canal began in High Falls, (0 comments)

Team Ulster Real Estate - 06/02/08 02:34 PM
When I first started here at Prudential Nutshell Realty (just Nutshell Realty before the Prudential affiliation) back in 2004 the company had 6 people, a fax machine and a company dog. Our market consisted of 142 companies all battling it out for a piece of the Ulster County Market share and we were the proverbial "low-man-on-the-totem-pole". The majority of the companies we were up against were seasoned veterans that guarded their territory like trained attack dogs. At the time, our small company was hardly a threat, especially to those that hovered in the top 10 spots of our market of 142 (1 comments)
