I love Ulster County! For years, I visited this area, before moving here 13 years ago. The pace is just right, the people are friendly, and it is so beautiful! My love for the area inspired me to share my time with a number of local organizations. I have served on the Planning and Zoning Committee, the Historic Preservation Commission, and the local Business Association. When I am not volunteering or working, I am out hiking with my wife and our dogs, exploring local hamlets, or just relaxing at home.
I list homes for sale and help home buyers find their dream home. I specialize in the marketing of homes for sale by taking the photographs, preparing the virtual tours, creating individual websites for the homes that I market, and placing these homes on real estate websites, as well as on YouTube, Facebook, Craigslist, and The New York Times Online. I also market homes through a monthly e-newsletter and email blasts, which are sent to the top 300 real estate agents in Ulster County and over 2,500 individuals who have expressed an interest in purchasing or selling a home in the Mid-Hudson Valley. Internet Marketing is my speciality. To see my active virtual tour videos on YouTube, Click Here.
I am also a member of a team of real estate agents, and we call ourselves "Team Ulster Real Estate", or "Team Ulster" for short. We have a team website, UlsterCountyHouses.com, and a blog. The team members are Laurel Sweeney and me; and we work at Prudential Nutshell Realty. Let me tell you a little about our team, in the words of one of my former team members. Unfortunately, the way he writes, it sounds like advertising copy, but he does do a good job of explaining our team concept of real estate sales and service. His description follows:
"Team Real Estate is the future of real estate. When you combine a solid team of proven real estate professionals with the power of Prudential, you have a team second to none. As Associate Brokers of Ulster County's fastest growing real estate firm (Prudential Nutshell Realty), Team Ulster takes service and real estate expertise to another level.

My specialty is the online marketing of real estate. One of the first things I do with a new listing is to work out a marketing strategy with my client. Some of the options that I offer are:Photographing their property, preparing a virtual tour and a slide show from the photographs, and putting the virtual tour and slide show online Creating a virtual tour DVD, which is provided to buyers and real estate agents at the property, and also distributed to local real estate offices Listing their property on 14 real estate websites Creating a website specifically for their property Promoting their property by email blast and e-newsletter to about 2,500 interested real estate buyers and the top 300 real estate agents in Ulster County Advertising their property in a number of online real estate classifieds
I specialize in marketing homes for sale. This includes photographing the properties, creating virtual tours, slide shows, websites, and other marketing materials to showcase these properties.
