It's a game in our family. My husband always wins - we call him "Rain Man" for his ability to remember little details - especially phone numbers. I might be giving away my age, but here is a song from the past...and if you want to play the game - all you have to do is guess what band made this a ...
This is a rather uncomfortable subject. I am posting this reminder to all buyers - before you purchase a home , be sure to check the national registry for convicted sex offenders. At the onset of looking at property with my buyer clients, I provide them a packet which contains information about t...
The current average selling price in Dutchess County is just over $375,000. So, I am wondering just what this would buy in other areas of the country.

Often, relocations are happening this time of year. If you are considering a move to the Dutchess County Area, or are an agent from another part of the country trying to assist somebody with a move here, you might be interested in the link below which provides information for these various school...
For budgetory reasons, many companies wait until year end (or the start of a new year) to transfer employees. A new job in a new location! The opportunity can open doors and horizons for you and your family. It may be one of the most rewarding experiences of your career. The critical decision to ...
I just remembered another reason why living in Dutchess County, NY is so awesome... the trains! Whether you commute to NY City or just want to get there occasionally for the day (like I did last week on Metro North), the train makes the journey there stress-free! Next week I will be taking the tr...
