beaconny: Realty Executives in Dutchess County, Ranked #4 out of 150 offices! - 10/23/14 11:00 PM
It's great to see....we Rank 4th in Dutchess County in sales. It's an amazing feat given the amount of agents in my office....whereas some of the higher ranking offices are made up of 4x's the agents and have 2-3 office locations spread around Dutchess County NY and some in Westchester County, New York....

It's a very proud me to find out how we're different! We are celebrating...!

Had an amazing Open House yesterday....10 guests walked in!  Which was fantastic, if you've all experienced an open house, you'll know what I mean.
There were a good handful of people that really seemed excited about this house and a bunch of them weren't working with Realtors already....which is good for me to follow up on!

For your own in person tour of this home please call me to view it!
While I am the listing agent, I am able to also sell this home to a buyer...
