Working With: Amy Lonas

Amy was a fantastic agent for us from beginning to end. We explained what we were looking for, she set up some houses to see, and [at our third stop] we found the perfect place, within our original budget. She helped us through the negotiating process step by step, communicated well, and helped us in our search for lawyer, lender and insurance without any pressure to choose anybody specific. We had a couple of hiccups towards the end of the process (related to septic) and Amy helped us renegotiate terms to keep the purchase moving forward but account for the surprise in the cost of the deal to us. On top of all of those professionally focused comments, I will also add that Amy is a wonderful person with a sense of humor - which really matters when you are going through a stressful and important process like buying a house. If you are looking for a property (or selling one) in the Catskills/Hudson Valley, I recommend Amy Lonas without hesitation.

Working With: Andrea M (Andi) Turco-Levin

"Andi is very reliable and straight forward. She listened carefully to our wishes and only showed properties which fit our profile. Her warmth, humor, & availability made us call her for this 2nd house deal. I have recently referred family members who are searching for a property."

Beveraly Bellinger & Howard Gottlieb
Working With: Ann Levine

Mark & Diane Stauble
Working With: Barry Glassman

"Barry is a professional. You cannot say that about everyone in the business. Barry was a pleasure to work with and I know he had our best interest at heart."

Timothy & Carol McCausland
Working With: Cathy Pulichene

From the first phone call to the follow-up emails after the close, Cathy was an outstanding realtor - attentive, subtle, highly informed, and with great skill in negotiation. Her real estate expertise is unmatched - hands down, the best real estate agent we've ever worked with! She helped us not only to achieve our goals, but also to attain what we didn't think possible.

Vicky & Tom
Working With: Cheryl Wherry

As a first-time homebuyer, I had a lot (and I mean a lot) of questions about the process. Thankfully, Cheryl had the answers. From start to finish, she was professional, kind-hearted, caring, and knowledgable. She provided me with all the information I needed to make informed decisions every step of the way from the beginning of the search to closing day. She is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met, and she provided exactly the right amount of advice necessary. She made herself easily accessible via text, phone, and email, and I never felt left in the dark when I needed a questioned answered. I would work with Cheryl again if I needed a real estate broker, and I highly recommend her! If you are looking to buy or sell a house in Ulster County, Cheryl is the broker for you.

Kiersten Greene
Working With: Christine Nielson

""Christine Nielson went above and beyond to help us in any way she could.  We were very happy with her!""

Paul & Joanne Patch
Working With: David Barnes

I met David Barnes when I called about a house. He made sure I was able to view it that same evening and by the next day we had a binder signed. The seller decided not to sell but David stuck by me and promised to find me a house I would love. I looked at more houses that I can remember and David always had a smile on his face and he always said "Don't worry we'll find the right one". One day the phone rang and it was David telling me about a property he found that had just lowered in price. It was a property that I had seen on but didn't feel I was interested. It was perfect. David knew me better than I knew myself. We closed 2 months ago and David still answers any questions I have about the area.

Melissa Reese
Working With: Dawn Passante

Dawn puts in 110% of effort to get the job done! She gets right down to business and knows everything about listing home! We put all of our trust in her and she sold our home in 2 days!

Dawn is knowledgeable, committed, dedicated, and most of all passionate about what she does. She works around the clock to help her clients! She kept us informed every step of the way and we couldn't have done it without her!

We highly recommend Dawn to be your listing or buyers agent. You will NOT be disappointed!

Thank you, Dawn!

Khalil & Brittany

Graham Ericksen & Debra Downs
Working With: Ellen Osgood

"Ellen stuck with us for 3 years and her service never wavered. She always looked out for us, kept a good line of communication and never "dropped the ball" If you want a GREAT agent, Ellen is it!" 

Rachelle Russo-Mas
Working With: Eric Amaral

All our experiences (with Eric) were very positive from start to finish. Eric was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the market and the area, and answered all questions patiently, regardless of how irrelevant they may have seemed. As a first-time homebuyer, I found the whole experience ultimately painless because of Eric. It was a complicated and contentious process because of the estate's bankruptcy and Eric was able to keepthe focus on the important issues and guide me through them patiently and with much needed humor. He was always cheerful and upbeat, no matter the circumstances. I cannot speak highly enough of Eric, who is aboviously a tremendous asset to CBVGR. I hope I never move again, but if I have to, Eric is the person I would unhesitatingly turn to first.

Peter & Geraldine Prideaux
Working With: Felicia Reyes

"Felicia is always upbeat, optimistic, & encouraging. I wouldn't consider working with anyone else." 

Michael Smith
Working With: Francesca Noble

Francesca Noble was our agent for our property in Sundown, NY. Her word and her actions could be taken to the bank. She was lways honest and direct. She was on time for every appointment, she provided consistently relable advice and opinions. She was exceedinly conscientious and careful in explaining her role as a dual agent as she moved between myself and the buyer, and was meticulous in assuring that every detail was properly considered and addressed. 

I have been involved in numerous real estate transcations, in several states, both as a seller and as a buyer, and have not met anyone who was as professional, friendly, and helpful as Francesca. I can heartily recommend her to anyone who embarks on what can be the emotional and financial journey entailed in selling your home.  

Barry Levine
Working With: George Denise

"George went above and beyond the call of a realtor. We needed a number of tasks completed that George ran with himself.  He's a terrific resource!"

Gilbert Maddock & Kathleen Dundas
Working With: Hollis Dukler

We had to finalize a rental quickly, and Hollis was very considerate and responsive. She met me to show the house the morning after I called and arranged a meeting with the landlord very quickly.

Raven F.
Working With: Jacqueline Coyle

Jacki was extremely kind and thoughtful and even visited my family at the nursing home where my husband was recuperating.  She is a wonderful person and realtor!

Herb and Erika Schaefer
Working With: Jeanine D. Stoddard

"Jeanine was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. It was the first time we had bought a house and she put us at ease and explained the whole process to us. It was reassuring to know that she was on our side and going to help us to achieve our goal. She quickly understood the type of property we were interested in and helped us to clarify our ideas as we began to understand the market better. During negotiations and the closing process Jeanine was professional and efficient which ensured that we got the house we wanted without undue stress and wasted time. We love our new home and would thoroughly recommend working with Jeanine." 

Charlotte Young
Working With: John Dooley

Working With: Lisa Jaeger

Lisa was so professional and helped us out so much.  She is the most professional person I think I have ever dealt with.

Shannon Hoyt
Working With: MaryAnn Miller

"Mary Ann took the time to show us many houses in our price range. Once we found 'the one' she showed us other houses in the neighborhood, which were nowhere near as nice. This helped solidify our decision. Mary Ann went above & beyond to help us close on our house. We are very thankful for her efforts."

Lucas & Lindsay Mitchell
Working With: Mercedes Ross

Mercedes was personable, professional, reliable and knowledgeable.  She was patient and not pushy.  Whenever I has a n issue or a  problem, she immediately responded to me.  She was also kind.  I have already recommended her and will continue to.

Kristin Brown
Working With: Nadine Bechle

Nadine was more than helpful. She attending every showing for us because we were in Florida. She also helped to let contractors in for repairs. Our alarm system failed just before Christmas and she met our alarm company and let them in to fix the problem. We would have never sold our house if not for Nadine Bechle. She even helped our attorney get some needed information for the closing.

Jim Murray
Working With: Nancy Brenner

Tobias Anderson
Working With: Ana Ortega

Ana knew what was good and bad. She was willing to learn about our type of loan and make sure we got the best for our money. We love her and respect her and are sad to have the relationship end. We truly felt like she was family. She was amazing and fought for us.

Matthew & Megan
Working With: Sara Gorman Maliha

"Sara was a proactive agent. Not only did she respond to emails, texts and calls in a timely manner, but she proactively checked in with the attorney, seller's agent and myself when there were lulls in communication or progress, which made me feel, as a buyer, like I had someone on my side who was on top of it and a go-getter. She accompanied us through the whole process and was so sweet and personable to invite me, a new transplant to the city who does not yet know Kingston well, to brunch to talk over the closing process and show me local Uptown businesses. She also made the very nice gesture of giving us our first house gift-- a beautiful wind chime made by a local, beloved company. " 

Adriana Pericchi Domínguez & Maria Domínguez
Working With: Mary McKinney

Very personable, reliable, thorough, and sweet.

Wendy & Gary Kaplan

Hank Pittner
Working With: Jamie Abitabile

She was extremely helpful. Very nice and always called back right away

Eric & Lada
Working With: Erik Forster

"Cheryl was a pleasure to deal with. She even offered to help us organize and pack for the move. In fact, on the morning of the closing, that's what she was doing! We couldn't have asked for a more professional, caring realtor.

Coldwell Banker is the best. They were also involved in the buy/sell sides of the purchase of our new home in Connecticut. The entire transaction was flawless and seamless.

P.S. Erik (Forster) was very helpful in suggesting the areas to paint, the colors to select, de-personalizing, etc. We implemented most of his recommendations which,  we believe also helped in selling the house - and so quickly (18 days on the market)."

Earl & Elaine Morey
Working With: Sabrina Lee Puppolo

After Sabrina helped me through every step of my house purchase last year, I enlisted her to rent the property.  She found fine tenants for the three bedroom relatively quickly.  It took a much longer time to find a tenant for the 1 bedroom, but Sabrina persisted, and worked extremely hard, and finally, an excellent tenant just signed a lease. 

Dan Miner
Working With: Sharon Knudsen

Sharon Knudsen is an extremely good agent & conducts business in a calm courteous manner

John & Josephine McCormick
Working With: Benjamin Armento

"I've had the good fortune to work with your realtor Benjamin Armento on the acquisition of my adorable home in Woodstock, NY. In Japan they would call Ben a living treasure; kind, thoughtful, witty, and capable. Ben is at ease within his hometown. He consistently helped me to exhale while undergoing the process of buying my home. Ben pursued the best route: he befriended me. This is a rare and valuable quality. He's a team player and enjoys directing capable referrals to those who can aid the client as they enter the process of remodeling, etc. I feel that you're office is expanded in goodness and integrity by his presence."

Sarah Means
Working With: Anne Hilton Purvis

"She gave me excellent advice from the very onset - where I should drive, what towns to visit, scenic walks to take. It is entirely because of her that I chose to buy in Ulster County over five other contenders - towns in Western MA, Vermont & Maine.

What's more, working with a very vague description of what I wanted ("an old farmhouse"), she selected 5 houses to show me, the 3rd of which I bought! It was perfect! I think that is pretty amazing.

Apart from her qualifications, she was just a lot of fun to work with - very dynamic, full of energy & ideas, a real positive outlook, a buoyant personality. I enjoyed the whole experience."

Marian Coulter
Working With: Diane DeChillo

"As we are beginning the process of settling into our new home we have to acknowledge the efforts of our salesperson from your office, Diane DeChillo. The purchase of this home was very challenging to say the least. We are both real estate attorneys now retired after long careers. It is not an exaggeration to say that in certain respects this was the most difficult transaction either of us has ever been involved in. It is also not an exaggeration to say that Diane was there with us every step of the way. As each new problem arose, she was willing to get involved to try to help us solve it. Each time we were sure we would never close and asked to see other houses, she provided us with thoughtfully chosen listings and was happy to show us as many as we wanted to see. We also appreciated her professionalism in the way she showed us the homes, taking the time to learn what was important to us and candidly discussing the pros and cons of each home in that context. Even today, several days after we closed, she sent us a listing of contractors we may want to consider using....We would heartily recommend anyone to Village Green Realty. "

Very truly yours,Daphne and Michael Cohen

Stan & Barbara Podkalicki

Donna and Bruce
Working With: Cecily Sachi

"We experienced a good deal of back and forth negotiating with the seller. These can be stressful communications. Cecily was supportive and responsive throughout the entire process and made sure that even in stressful moments things ran smoothly. Beyond her professionalism and competency, Cecily is an extremely pleasant person to work with. These traits engendered our trust in her throughout the process,which was valuable and comforting...."


Working With: Donald Wilkins

Don was absolutely wonderful to work with. My wife and I were orchestrating a move from across the country and we found Don at the last minute, after another realtor fell through the one weekend my wife was available to look at homes. Don took the time to get to know us and our needs and make us feel comfortable as first time home buyers. He was available to answer any questions we had at any point in the process, and accommodate our long distance schedule. Don was an indispensable ally in our home buy search...I am so grateful that we found him. 

Greg Barrett
Working With: Alejandra Dmytruk

"We actually switched realtors after already starting the home buying process. Our other agent just stopped responding to emails, so we lost some hope. Then we decided to call Coldwell Banker and we are glad we did, because it worked out and we never got left hanging again. Alejandra was helpful, nice, determined, & easy to work with."

David Padusnak
Working With: Solomon Anidjar

"Solomon's enthusiasm about Kingston and the surrounding area is infectious. He is truly devoted to helping his clients find the property that is right for them."

Ginny Holbert

Kelly Merryman
Working With: David Baker

"David Baker was amazing. He was supportive and positive all the time. He works long and hard for you and his support is heartwarming. This was a difficult property for some reason to sell and David did it!! We have bought and sold properties in the past and this was the most pleasant of all. He made a difficult time easier by being warm & sensitive to our needs."

Louis Spina & May Grett
Working With: Leslie Foti

"Leslie was fantastic from start to finish. She completely understood our wants and needs, fought through other offers (not to mention while pregnant) and was able to secure us with our dream home. Every step of the process was fun, easy and a pleasure due to Leslie’s diligent work."

Thomas Moore
Working With: Robin Elliott

"The minute I first spoke to Robin on the phone I was impressed by her expertise and knowledge regarding real estate, and particularly in the Kingston and Ulster neighborhoods where she grew up and has lived all her life. After asking me all the right questions on the phone one evening, she immediately got to work and began sending me listings the very next day. Robin not only showed me several properties during our first meeting, but also gave me a tour of all the possible neighborhoods I may not have known about but may have been of interest to me. In other words, she did not have to rush off; she gave me all the time I needed. After spending a number of days with Robin looking for property I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me in my search. She is enormously patient, kind, knowledgeable, easy going with a great of sense of humor and intelligence. All I can say is I was lucky to find her, and cannot recommend her enough to anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell their home." 

Alison Hoffman
Working With: Richard Vizzini

"Rich is accessible, knowledgeable and dedicated to his clients. I spent several months looking for a house with Rich. He's honest, and knowledgeable about houses. He genuinely has his clients interest at heart and I consider him a friend. I wholeheartedly recommend him without hesitation."

Marco Epstein
Working With: Susan DeFord

Susie did a fabulous job for us. Her demeanor is laid back and calm, and yet she is totally determined without being pushy. She’s the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove type of person. She was exactly the kind of person you most need to guide you through what can be a confusing, sometimes frustrating and drawn out set of negotiations. I am so thankful we decided to go with her! We had gotten some pressure from a realtor we’re working with in another city to go with someone from that company, and I am convinced we wouldn’t have gotten such a good deal and gotten one so quickly if we had gone with someone other than Susie. She has my highest recommendation.

Pamela Ethington
Working With: Jeanette (Jenny) Bishop and GL Trudi Conkling

“They were extremely organized and efficient. Being that we lived in NYC, they planned a meticulous trip out for us that was scheduled to the NYC minute. We extremely appreciate the respectful use of our time. The entire process was also managed locally by them as we were remote and they did all the legwork for us.”

Working With: GL Trudi Conkling and Jeanette (Jenny) Bishop

"Jenny and Trudi brought a real human touch to all of this--we would often talk baseball or other stuff. When the sale was finalized, they gave us a beautiful photo that Trudi had taken as a gift--it's hanging now in our new house!"

Maccabee Montandon
Working With: Teresa Samuels Lepore

""Not only Did Teresa get my home sold quickly, she even delivered a package to my new home after the sale (the package had not been forwarded to my new address). Wonderful lady- very helpful, kind and sweet. Thank you!"

Steve Wood
Working With: Allison Morelle

"Allison is always helpful and amazing when showing me and my fiancé a house. We've been looking for almost a year now and she is always enthusiastic and quick to get us in and has all of the details and answers to our questions before we even ask! She's thorough, and has even pointed out good and bad things that we have overlooked! She is excellent at communicating with us and the sellers/agents/whoever we need answers from. I have and would continue to refer to anyone looking for help with buying a house to Allison!" 

Mary Croley
Working With: Erin Patricia Loughran

"The only reason I found my home in this busy market is because of Erin. She was on top of the inventory, she knew what I was looking for and she was extremely attentive. I would highly  recommend Erin Loughran to anyone looking to buy or sell."

Louann Sullivan
Working With: John Summerford

"John Summerford of Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty is a pleasure to work with. He is deeply knowledgable about the Ulster County real estate market and  gives advice tactfully and and completely on point. We have worked with John on a few real estate sales and purchases, on every one he was vital in keeping the deal alive.  Any time there was a problem or glitch John always moved the transaction forward and came up with solutions.  He never needs to be asked. I have no hesitation in recommending John Summerford heartily."


Cathy Crawford
Working With: Angela Lanuto

Angela was my biggest support through this whole house buying experience. She helped us find the house of our dreams!! We came across many challenges during this process and Angela was always there to guide us through. I am very grateful to have had her working with us and to be by our side.

Justine & Corey M.
Working With: Aysa Elizabeth Morehead

"Aysa was and continues to be an excellent resource. She is so on top of everything, responds so quickly and is very knowledgeable! If you are looking for an agent that is all of that, you won't be disappointed. If you have been searching for a property any amount of time, you already know most agents don't return your call. Not Aysa! Give her a call today!"

Rachelle Rayner
Working With: China Jorrin

"China worked patiently and diligently in helping me find the perfect rental in Rhinebeck. We visited quite a few places before I found just the right space. China really helped to make the process seamless for me and was responsive to all of my questions. She swiftly negotiated with the listing  agent on the rental price and move in date. I highly recommend China’s services and will choose her as my buying agent once it’s time for me to purchase a home!"

Nicole T
Working With: Amie Durham

Amie was a pleasure to work with. She was super prompt with email and texts, kept things moving on her end and was very supportive and understanding of what we wanted. She made our experience as first time home-buyers so easy and enjoyable.

Talia Bosco
Working With: Lisa Ferrante

I have been working with Coldwell Banker 2002. I sold my father's house on Long Island and had very good results. When purchasing my house, I went directly to Coldwell Banker, had a great experience, and decided to return when selling the house.

From day one when I met Lisa, she was very informative, compassionate, and helpful.

To my surprise, I was shocked that the house was sold in one day which took a lot of weight off my shoulders. I would definitely recommend Coldwell Banker to friends and family. Lisa was a pleasure to work with.

Deborah Cohen-Lampitok
Working With: Antonio Parrotta

I would actively recommend Tony P. as anyone's choice in a realtor.

His personality is outgoing, sunny, and friendly - and he is readily available to his sellers and buyers alike. Tony is very responsive to any contact whether it's by phone or text , which as you may well guess is a very important part of the sales/buying process!

His outgoing nature makes him an asset in the sale of any home or property. Tony's innate design sense and vision for the property he is showing or selling is a huge bonus that he readily shares with potential buyers. And let's not forget about his enthusiasm, that's my favorite!

When my home suffered an insurance tragedy, he was very helpful and supportive. In fact, he sold the home for me in the midst of all the confusion, chaos and rubble!

In summation, I recommend Tony to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Ulster County area.

He turned my heart-break into treasure.

Thank you, Tony.

Cindy Graham
Working With: Michael B. Weber

I would highly recommend Mike Weber as a real estate person. What impressed me most was his honesty. He was never pushy or put pressure on me. He also took the time to explain things to me, since this was my first house I was to buy. He also physically move in. "What else could you ask for?"

Nick S.
Working With: Amy Crossfield

My realtor did much of the foot work for me before I was even able to look at the house I purchased I was searching for a house from across the country. Having someone I trusted on the ground was essential. Amy has a very nuetral unpushy vibe and would send me videos and images of each place I asked her to check out for me. It was incredibly helpful and finally I found the right place.
