I take pride in the level of service I provide my clients. I am extremely resourceful and have fostered a sizable online presence with my creative marketing. When I am not closing a deal, I enjoy taking care of my dog Milo and cat Frankie as well as reading, biking along the Hudson, and exploring new places. Whether buying, selling, or investing, I would love to help you on your journey!

Given the booming market conditions when I decided to put my coop on the market, I believed selling on my own would be quick and easy. My opinion of brokers had been, up until I met Annette, not a positive one.

Given the booming market conditions when I decided to put my coop on the market, I believed selling on my own would be quick and easy. My opinion of brokers had been, up until I met Annette, not a positive one. After months of open houses and weeding through all of the emails and phone calls on my own, I decided to list with Annette. She sold it within 1 week with multiple offers.
