Testimonials

As first time homebuyers, Amy Lonas was everything we hoped for in a Realtor and more. Her extensive knowledge of the market combined with her candor and sense of humor made working with her a joy. Should we need a Realtor again in the future, Amy would be our first choice.

Amy Lonas is great. She is easy to work with, and understood my needs and taste immediately. She was forthright about the positives and negatives of each property.

- Pattie & Kathleen

I wish my books got as good a rating as Amy Lonas' service. I dreamed of the house I wanted and she found it. We got it for less than the asking price. Amy did all the worrying for us.

- Zillow User: sandigc

Working with Amy Lonas as we searched for a second home in the Woodstock area was a wonderful experience. Since this was a second home for us, we were in no rush to buy and wanted to wait for the right place that checked all the boxes. Amy is patient and not once did we feel rushed or pressured into anything. She is honest and trustworthy, steering us away from places that had drawbacks. Amy has a very strong sense of the market and property values, and when it came time to make an offer on our home in Olivebridge, we felt confident because of her guidance. Last but not least, Amy is friendly, funny and very easy to work to with. Highly recommend

- Zillow User: mpalmaccio

Amy Lonas was friendly, professional, accessible, and as a long time resident of the area, she was a wealth of information about any question I had about anything in the area. Amy was fun to work with and gave me impeccable recommendations for all the services I was looking for. I give her my highest recommendation! Prior to Amy, I had been “dumped” by another realtor for not being up to her standard of pricing… Amy welcomes all her clients, in all price ranges.  Thank you. Amy! I am so happy! I love my new home.

- Wendy

With Amy Lonas, I was reassured at every turn that my transaction would turn out OK! It was that reassurance that made the entire experience a joy... Even in the Face of my anxiety!

- Tim Lacy

Amy Lonas happened to answer the phone when I saw an ad in the Woodstock area, and that is how my journey with her began.

She is an incredible realtor, and within a few minutes of talking with my husband and me, she had a real sense of who we were and what we were looking for. She knows the market and areas that we looked at so well. We saw a lot of homes with her and came up to Woodstock several times. We decided to expand our search to the New Paltz area and Amy had us on her radar daily. I got emails and calls often with different homes and many times, Amy would preview them first to make sure it was worth our trip up. When she saw our new home listed, she got us in before the realtors open house - thinking that this might be [the one and that] we should see [it] right away.

Though she was booked that weekend, she told us when she had a few hours available, and we made it work. We knew that this house was the one and she then went into full realtor mode. For the next few weeks between binders and contracts, questions, home inspection, and referrals, Amy helped us until our closing; that went beautifully. She kept us informed throughout the entire process.

Amy is a true professional, a wonderful person and [is] so easy to talk and work with. I would totally recommend Amy and I must also add that if I was selling my home, I would absolutely have Amy as my realtor!

- Zillow User: Craft1520

Amy Lonas was a delight to work with both times. She helped me sell my house and then my sisters. She was attentive, gave excellent advice, and handled all the details.

- Clorinda Barone

Amy Lonas was professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. I had my home for sale previously with absolutely no interest. Amy had many viewers and, even though it was the dead of winter and the worst time to sell a home, had my home in contract and sold within 4 months. I would recommend her to any prospective purchaser or seller.

- Zillow User: ddownes

Amy Lonas is very honest and direct... Another great quality is her ability to fight for her client tooth and nail. She's also warm and fun to spend time with... something valuable with an agent because you end up spending a lot of time together. For as harrowing as selling and moving and buying truly is, Amy is the best at getting you through it.

- James Conrad

Amy Lonas is a fantastic agent. She worked tirelessly to find me my dream weekend home. She made me feel like I was her only client and she was zealous in advocating a good deal for me when we found the place I wanted. Amy's a true local in the community and her recall for the history and details of properties is remarkable. I'm so happy with the house she found me that I can't imagine ever selling. But if I had to do it, I wouldn't hesitate in choosing Amy as my listing agent.

- Kelley Parker

Amy Lonas was extremely thoughtful and knowledgeable in the very tender process of selling a well-loved home. She was very straight forward about current comparibles for finalizing a price, and though we ended up marketing it higher at my insistence, I was made aware that this was by my choice and if it didn't work we'd come to a new strategy. Thank god we didn't have to!

- Zillow User: jhc10011

Amy Lonas has guided me through 2 house sales and I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

- Diane Kniss

Amy Lonas was excellent in introducing us to the Ulster County market.  We didn't know the area when we began our search.  Amy worked with the lender and seller to make the closing extremely smooth.

- Andrew & Abigail Cohen

Amy Lonas is simply outstanding. Her knowledge, expertise, manner of relating to and understanding people, as well as her emotional intelligence, combine to make her an outstanding broker. We had no hesitancy in placing the outcome of this most important financial decision in her capable hands.

- Richard & Mary Pat McDermott

Amy Lonas 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.

- Zillow User: dtclark10

Amy Lonas is warm and wonderful as a person. And she was very knowledgeable. I was completely satisfied.

- Phyllis Luberg

Amy Lonas knew what we should fix up in our house before putting it on the market. She was right on target and saved us a lot of money. We had a specific problem about mold in our basement. The buyers inspector said it would cost $20,000 to remediate the mold. Amy recommended a mold assessor who prepared a proposal to remediate the mold and it wound up costing us $6000.

- Esther Liebert

Amy Lonas is something else. She's excellent at what she does and here is what surprised me: I really like and trust her. I never imagined I would feel this way about a real estate agent, but I do with Amy. She helped my partner and I find OUR home, and we can't imagine any other home being more fitting for us. Throughout the process, she understood what we were looking for, she made us feel comfortable, she was fun, patient, and had the perfect balance of giving us our space and offering us her insight. Plus, she facilitated the transaction going smoothly and quickly. Moving from CA was difficult but Amy helped to make it as easy as someone in her position could. She actually cares and wants to be helpful. Amy Lonas is the way to go.

- Zillow User: eli_gabriel

In preparation for putting our house on the market, we researched the success of the local real estate agents and chose to interview three of the top selling agents. Amy Lonas was clearly a front runner. She was extremely effective in advising us how to show the house and what we could expect. She recommended an asking price that would attract the most buyers and was right on target. We had five offers as soon as it was listed, three at full price. Amy did not waste a minute. She loved the house and was great at extolling its virtues. She knew exactly how to show it. Amy was so smart about everything. She is practical, extremely knowledgeable about the market, and cool. She doesn't waste words, and every word is wise. She was always available to us if we had questions and always returned calls and texts promptly. We loved working with Amy and are grateful to her for her efforts on our behalf. We valued her as our agent and now a friend.

- Michael Widener

Amy Lonas is a wonderful business woman that cares about her clients.

- Loretta Martin

Amy Lonas was knowledgeable, no nonsense and on the ball. She was quick to share what she knew and find out what we needed. She found us the house we didn’t know we needed! Amy is a joy to work with. She always made us feel like we were her top priority. She is an excellent communicator and very knowledgeable about the area. She took the time to understand what we wanted in our next home, which made the search process efficient. Amy’s responsiveness and confidence allowed us to trust her advice and she delivered a great outcome for our family.

- Evan Ambrose
As first time home buyers, we were apprehensive about finding an agent that we could trust. From the first phone call with Amy Lonas I felt she knew what my husband and I were looking for. She’s a real estate match-maker! Amy was able to easily match our interests and personality with a location, county and style of home that met our needs. Unlike other realtors who seem to be on the phone constantly to other clients, despite her busy schedule Amy always gave us her full attention. She was quick to respond to correspondences and facilitated a very smooth process from looking at homes to closing on our home. Amy is patient, kind, and a great negotiator. We could turn to Amy for ideas and knowledge during each step of the process and were so glad to have found Amy. We would recommend Amy in a heartbeat. If you want a genuine, hardworking and fun agent – Amy would be your best choice!
- Erin Davis, Kinesiology Works, Brooklyn

I’ve known and trusted Amy Lonas for more than ten years, since first meeting her at the closing of a home I purchased in Woodstock in 2008. She was the seller’s agent and I regretted that she wasn’t representing me as the buyer. I’ve sold two homes since then, the one in Woodstock and another in Saugerties, and both times Amy handled the sales for me. I appreciate her direct, straightforward approach, and feel that she places my interest first. I can comfortably and unequivocally recommend her.

- Ken Dreyfack

Christine Nielson and Amy Lonas marketed and sold our house on the Hudson River. Not only were they extremely professional, but they were equally kind, caring and likable throughout the process which is never without its stresses. As a veteran of the real estate industry, exposed to hundreds of transactions and agents, they truly earned their commission.

- Leonard Steinberg, President, The Leonard Steinberg Team - Compass

Amy Lonas - Dream Agent

Not only is Amy a brilliant negotiator, she supports the difficult process from inception to closing, beyond the required role of an agent. Incredibly, she sold my house after the first few showings. Amy was my fourth agent, and while the others were enthusiastic and involved at the beginning - only until the signing of the exclusive contract - Amy was the only [agent] who sustained her interest. She followed through and communicated on a continuous basis, dealing with every problem in detail, including finding a trustworthy and affordable contractor for repairs required after inspection.

Her generosity of spirit and loyalty were remarkable. She was always available and responded immediately to all enquiries. She made the process effortless, which would otherwise have been a stressful experience, speeding things along, including finding the fastest and most effective lawyer. While unique details of the property might have been devalued and ignored for square footage; she enhanced them and so ensured a proper relationship between the market value in relation to other properties that were evaluated in the neighborhood, and the aesthetic details that might have been minimized in favor of more practical considerations.

I wholeheartedly recommend her if you are looking for an agent that is both attentive and intuitive. I cannot imagine using any other, who might only be thinking in terms of just another property on their list. If you want a more personal way of dealing with what can be a long and arduous process, use Amy. She is the agent not of the year, but of the decade.
