Things To Do In Upstate New York! Being in the Real Estate biz, we're plugged into the event scene across the many counties of the Hudson Valley and Catskills region. We love all the creativity we're seeing! It seems that our neighbors spent the quiet pandemic time coming up with new and different ways for us to have fun together (without discarding the best of the old ways). We shout, "hooray" for Painting With Ponies, a no-phone music and camping festival, and a nighttime market featuring "exotic oddities". We've culled together a list of concerts, festivals, fairs, farmer's markets, and other happening events in the Hudson Valley and Catskills for summer 2022 that we're excited for. We hope to see you at some of them! Look for the Coldwell Banker

One of the easiest and most beautiful ways to be a conscientious citizen of the planet is to use native species in your garden and landscaping. As Hudson Valley and Catskills real estate experts, we at Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty know that this is a concern close to many buyers' hearts.

Never have we ever heard a homebuyer say they weren't keen on a plot of land because it was decorated with native plants - no one's shouting, "NOOOO, not a serviceberry tree!!!!" - and we have all worked with buyers who put a landscape of local plants on their wishlist in order to live "greenly".  As Local Experts, we're happy to give suggestions about everything from plumbers and interior decorators to electricians and gourmet shops (both solicited and un

Christina Batch-Lee: Abstraction

Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty: 268 Fair Street, Kingston, NY 12401

Open 9-5 Daily | 845-331-5357 

 

Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty’s Kingston NY Real Estate Office is proud to present the art of Christina Batch-Lee in an exhibition titled “Abstraction” as part of our "Gallery At Work" series. 

Christine Batch-Lee has always been drawn to the sea; the dissolution and change that water represents. In her work, she makes use of watercolor, oil paint, and gold leaf to explore seascapes - whether as figures dissolving into their environment and the painting itself, or tide pools dissolving into pure abstraction. 

Batch-Lee earned her BFA from Cornell University, and continued

Hudson Valley Fall Events

This is the best time of year to be outside - it's just so comfy! A light sweater, a pair of jeans, some snazzy boots, and a nice relaxing weekend event, and we're loving my life. Late Summer/Early Fall can be a time for the ultimate FOMO in The Hudson Valley and Catskills. Even this year, with events just getting rolling again, there are so many events it can be really difficult to decide which to prioritize. Of course, you need to pick apples and eat cider doughnuts; here's Hudson Valley Magazine's Guide on that - they do a great job. Of course, you'll need to leaf peep in the late fall; here's The Great Northern Catskills guide to the best spots to see the fall foliage and get out of your car. But everywhere you turn

One of the best excuses for a summer drive is ice cream! I remember back in the day, going out after dinner with my mom and sister to little wayside places in the woods - our favorite flavors were Mocha Almond and Maple Walnut – no “Moose Tracks” for us! Call me old-fashioned! As an adult I can indulge in variety with frequency because I'm lucky to live in the Hudson Valley which is loaded with amazing ice cream places. Any excuse is a good excuse for a drive and a cone. These days, with the craze for artisanal everything, there are oodles of home-made varieties of hard ice cream in wild flavors to be explored! I'm one of those equal opportunity ice cream-lovers, I like it hand-dipped or smooth and twisty! Both species of dairy goodness (hard and

Hudson Valley Summer Events

Summer events have returned to The Hudson Valley and Catskill Region. Everyone at Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty is thrilled that we not only have great events to share with you, but also that we have great events to go to! We know that we’ve had more interaction than many people over the past year - real estate thankfully kept rolling. But we missed music, we missed theatre, we missed quirky workshops on random yet incredibly interesting topics. Events and the arts are what this area is about!  We're ecstatic that they are back on our calendar.

I’ve put together a list of events recommended by me and my colleagues. We try to give you something from every corner of the region. It’s in no way exhaustive, but if

I've noticed something about a lot of our clients - boy are they moving fast! Our clients are buying and selling homes at what feels like warp speed to them; from offer to closing day is a blur, and suddenly it's time to move in and "make it home".

When you're making a move it can be hard to plan out your new space during the blur of closing prep. And because so many people are moving in order to have the space they never knew they needed before, they have lots of space to fill up with comfort on closing day but often don't have enough of their own furnishings to fill that space. You've all heard the warnings about just "Ikea-ing" the heck out of your new home. Heed them! You don't want to look around after a month in your new house and wonder who
