I am an investor turned real estate professional serving Rhinebeck and Red Hook, NY and surrounding areas. I ventured to real estate in 2004 when the market was heating up. It was a seller’s market and inventories were low. I remembered vividly that a buyer was waiting in my office with a binder check for a property in the village to come on the market. At that time, a buyer’s agent had to be resourceful and alert for her/his clients. I quickly learned how to take care of buyers and eventually developed my "Preferred Buyer Program." The market reached its peak in 2007 and then crashed. All over a sudden, inventories were mounting and buyers quickly became scarce. How to sell became a major issue. At this juncture, my experience as an Internet entrepreneur gave me an edge. I incorporate cutting-edge internet marketing skills in my real estate marketing. I provide my clients with a multi-media and multi-layered marketing plan. It ensures a wide market exposure and delivers a targeted core selling message. I also updated traditional print media advertisement with smart phone technology. They are, in my marketing plan, connected to the Internet. Along came the properties that were up-side-down, or even bank owned. I enrolled in Harris Real Estate University to hone my skill in the fields of short sale and REO management. Now, as a certified short sale specialist, I am able to help people whose properties are up-side-down. As a certified REO specialist, I can help buyers seize great investment opportunities. It feels really good to be able to provide great value to my clients. Originally from Beijing, China, I furthered my education at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson and obtained my M.A in 2002. This experience enriched my life. Since then I have lived in Rhinebeck for almost ten years. I have found the place I call home. I currently work with Mondello Upstate Properties in Red Hook, NY. A family-owned truly local firm with 25 years of presence in this area. I understand the value and importance of a home. I do not dare to take what I do lightly. I always have my clients’ best interest in my mind and my heart. My personal blog is http://www.FengWinham.com.
