Who We Are
Hello and thank you for visiting! We’re a husband + wife team, both raised in CNY and married in 1992.
We love our clients and view them as our friends, and treat them like family! ♥
We believe that since ‘HOME’ is the starting and ending point of all you do each day, it should work for you, simplify you, and refresh you.
We’re here to help you find that perfect place and simplify the process from start to finish.
Here’s a little about us:
- Andy -
I grew up around real estate and home construction. My parents owned a real estate company and my dad also built homes in our area.
After working with my two older brothers in their building/remodeing businesses, I eventually owned my own window and door installation business when my wife and I lived in Naples, Florida.
When we returned to NY in 2003, I was ready to put all my experience of construction and sales into real estate.
Not many Realtors can say they’ve seen and been involved in the whole home building process from start to finish.
**18 years later, I've greatly enjoyed getting to meet and working closely together with hundreds of people in CNY, helping them sell and buy homes, whether it's their very first, a vacation home, or investment property.
I use the experience I acquired, coupled with the hundreds of home inspections I’ve been on, and my additional background in home appraising, to give my clients confidence when preparing their home and listing it (such as what repairs/improvements may be needed) and/or choosing their next home.
I’d like be your agent through the process too! Please reach out to me with any real estate questions you may have.

That’s a tough one to top! That being said, my previous career experience brings a different skill set, which I feel makes us an exceptional team!
I’ve spent many years in customer service and office management, appreciating the role that communication plays in the success of any endeavor.
One of the biggest complaints from people buying/selling homes, is that their realtor doesn’t communicate with them often enough and keep them updated. This causes needless anxiety, uncertainty, and potential problems.
I firmly believe and live by the importance of communication in a real estate transaction. There are many other parties involved besides the agent and client: from home inspectors, loan officers, attorneys, other agents, etc.
When everyone is on the same page, things run smoothly and efficiently. Issues are solved before they become problems.
I joined Andy in 2018 and though I already felt like I knew so much from watching him over the years, I’ve taken numerous classes since then in all things real estate to stay on top of the latest information, marketing tools, new laws and procedures, and much more, to provide our clients with the best possible service.
Navigating someone through the buying and selling process is always exciting and I love to use my experience in building relationships and trust to help them put their real estate plans in motion and see them through to the next chapter in their life.
I’m always eager to meet new people in our community and am available to answer any questions about the home buying and selling process whether or not you’re ready to make a move.
I’d love to hear from you!
- In our spare time -
We enjoy cooking together, hiking or riding our bikes at many of the parks in CNY, playing music, working on our house and in our flower & vegetable gardens, and spending time with family.
