Having lived and traveled to many places I can honestly say that the greater Woodstock community is as beautiful, exciting and stimulating a place as anywhere. As a repeatedly #1 selling real estate agent in Woodstock, and a top 5 producer in the entire Ulster County region I will endeavor to share my expertise and knowledge with you. Diligence is a word I love and I will apply that to your vision and work to secure for you the very best real estate experience possible so that you may be free to enjoy our incredible community and surrounding areas. Owning real estate enables one to have their own refuge from the cares of the world....and, owning one's own property is the dream of everyone whether the property they long for is in a neighborhood walking distance to town, or rural and private.... whether the property is a large estate or small and cozy, immaculately finished or a rustic fixer upper - these are properties we can find together. As your Realtor® I have a long standing and deep interest in both the world of art and the art of business. Descended from one of the Woodstock's Maverick Art Colony's oldest families; the creative & free spirited lifestyle of The Maverick carved an indelible impression on my way of life. This lead originally to a career in Los Angeles' music business and later to the marketing and development of a 10,000 acre land development community in Wellington, WPB, Florida. I have practiced real estate in Florida, California and New York. My original focus was in assisting first time buyers while later I found that I loved marketing large undeveloped land parcels for people seeking to fulfill their dream of having a rural retreat. Ulster County has given me the opportunity to work in every area of Real Estate I love. I find balance & inspiration through my community involvement in a variety of arts organizations including Yoga, Byrdcliffe, Maverick Concerts & the newer effort to make Woodstock a sustainable "green" community. It is through my clients and friends that I meet through the real estate community that I can unequivocally say, " Yes, this is a great place to be!" So when you decide that you'd like to investigate buying or selling a home in the greater Woodstock areas, please contact me.

Testimonials

Laurie Ylvisaker was responsible and supportive through the entire process.  Primarily and importantly, she established the correct selling price and the property sold very quickly!

- Donna Kermeen

Laurie Ylvisaker is the number one real estate agent in Woodstock and Ulster County for a reason – she is the best! She is dedicated beyond measure and will find you the home you are looking for or the buyer for your home without any nonsense or ‘broker-speak.’ She knows the Woodstock and Ulster County market, every street, every nook and cranny, and she will tell you ‘like it is’ – whether a property is priced right, whether you are buyer or seller. I’ve found more than one rental through Laurie, bought a home with her help and most recently sold a property through her. She definitely has the inside track -- if you are a buyer, she will frequently know of a property that might be available before it is even formally listed, or if you are a seller, she knows who’s out there looking for your type of property. No one will work harder than Laurie to meet your needs, and she is the nicest, most professional person to deal with.

We selected Laurie Ylvisaker after a bad experience with another agent (from a different agency). Laurie was everything we hoped for in agent -- she knew exactly how to market our property, even helped by staging it a bit and adding some area rugs, and was always in communications with us. We signed with Laurie in October, and by January we had an offer. Now that's what I call a great experience. Laurie always went the extra mile to help us out. I have been referring her to everyone -- even people who don't want to sell their homes!

- Barbara

Laurie Ylvisaker provided the local expertise I sought--she knew the characteristics of the lot I purchased, the advantages of the location, and the neighbors. Our transaction was seamless, and I'd be pleased to use her services again.

- Zillow User: user2929167

Thank you Laurie Ylvisaker. You certainly persevered and found us the right buyer at the right time for a wonderful property that had some great attributes but also some unique challenges.  You put a lot of time and effort into this and I am truly grateful.

- Gary Chetkof

Laurie Ylvisaker was our real estate agent for a house purchased and then a house sold. We relied upon her knowledge and expertise in all things pertaining to the local area, negotiating prices, and follow-through on all aspects of the process. She was "there" for us in every possible way: to clarify what we were looking for, viewing our options and then gathering whatever information was needed in order to make all decisions. Most of all, we felt supported in every step of the process, with her responsiveness to all of our concerns and her caring for us as people. I can't say enough good things about Laurie; she is warm, understanding and really "listens."

- Zillow User: elli1234

Laurie Ylvisaker's guidance, at every stage, made the process an effortless experience.

We would highly recommend her.

Our experience with Laurie Ylvisaker has been most positive. She has been a pleasure to work with -- upbeat, focused and most helpful in our needs. Never a time when she wasn't there for us, taking advantage of every possible advertising opportunity when listing our house. We would not want our home listed with any other agent.

- Zillow User: lorrmend

Laurie Ylvisaker acted as our agent in the sale of a 2-family rental house in Woodstock. Laurie was the consummate professional in every aspect of the sale. From securing a buyer to negotiations for a fair price to her participation in the closing, her honesty, sincerity, knowledge of the real estate market and negotiation skills were second to none. I recommend Laurie to anyone who wants to be successful in purchasing or selling a property.

- Dennis Bressack

Laurie Ylvisaker is one of the region's best realtors. Her reputation as a savvy, compassionate, business woman is well warranted. During our initial contact Laurie clearly outlined the marketing strategy for my home and answered my questions thoroughly and with ease. I knew from the beginning exactly what services would be paid for by the agency, and which ones I would be responsible for. Laurie was able to advise me as to arranging what I had at hand, thereby, avoiding unnecessary expenses in preparing my home for sale. She was consistently thoughtful and willing to lend a hand, especially during these crazy pandemic times. I appreciated her snagging the empty pizza box off the counter before a showing while I was prepping other areas, and dropping off a surprise gift of a potted chrysanthemum to add a splash of color to the front deck. Easy to talk to and generously available to counsel me through the stress of multiple showings and offers, I truly appreciate the hard work and dedication Laurie Ylvisaker demonstrated at every turn.

- Dory Salerno

Laurie Ylvisaker is a problem solver with excellent local contacts.  She moves things along but is aware & sensitive to the circumstances of her seller & buyer.  She is personable and easy to deal with.  In our very unusual situation Laurie was able to match a buyer at the first showing thereby saving us enormous amounts of stress and inconvenience

- Elaine & William Schneider

Laurie Ylvisaker listed our property, and based on her perseverance and knowledge of the local market, we closed in 5 months. Laurie was always available, responsive and very pleasant, and made the process from soup to nuts quite easy. This was especially important to me as an out-of-town seller. As someone who benefitted from Laurie's passion for real estate and helping people, I would recommend Laurie.

- Lizzie Vann

Laurie Ylvisaker expertly handled the sale. Her knowledge of the market and the area allowed her to quickly bring the property onto the market and receive multiple offers above the asking price. Her presentation of the house on the web was outstanding. I would highly recommend her. She is very hard working and handled all the complications quickly and efficiently.

- Alison Eriksen Trust Robert Erikson, Exc

Laurie Ylvisaker is truly amazing. She stuck with us patiently as we looked at many houses over several years. Then she helped us through a complex closing. She's so responsive and patient. We can't thank her enough.

- Jeffrey & Jeriann Kolton

Laurie Ylvisaker was always very communicative and kept our best interests in mind. We trusted her advice & help. Her knowledge of the area was vast. We were very picky and she was patient with us.

- Daniel

It was a pleasure to work with Laurie Ylvisaker at Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty. Laurie was able to get our home sold in a timely manner and she is professional, organized and was extremely responsive to any questions that we had. With Laurie our entire process went smoothly and worry free. We would highly recommend Laurie.

- Laura & James Ferraro

We met Laurie Ylvisaker through Zillow after having found a property we wanted to see. She was the perfect agent. We were impressed with her knowledge of the area, she was very easy to speak with, answered all our questions, and checked in with us frequently, readily available during the purchasing process. We ended up making an offer through her on a property that proved to have many complications before we could close and taking many months. Laurie worked tirelessly through the long process, assuring us, and often times miraculously finding solutions to challenges that came up unexpectedly. At times it looked as if everything would fall apart, but Laurie was always there to help find a way to keep us moving forward. We would highly recommend Laurie to either a first time buyer (she will make you feel very comfortable and assured) or the seasoned buyer who knows what they want.
