All of our clients are city dwellers looking for a weekend escape in the Catskills. We regularly meet these clients in NYC/Brooklyn to talk about the different areas to consider, the market conditions and how to craft an effective search. Clients find these meetings highly informative and instructive. For the past eight years, we've split our time between Brooklyn and the Catskills, so we're intimately familiar with the nuances of owning a weekend home as well as the various counties/areas in which to consider buying. Of course, this is information we're happy to share with you.Learn More
