I'm currently a self employed owner of a small real estate brokerage office in Saratoga Springs, NY. I have been licensed by the State of New York to conduct real estate transactions since 1982.
Prior to my real estate endeavor, I obtained a degree in hotel management. For 11 years I worked in hotels and restaurants pursuing a career in the hospitality industry.
I have spent all of my professional life providing a service to my customers and clients, living by the motto " Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you" .
My primary residence, where I was born and raised, is in Saratoga Springs, NY. I'm an 8th generation Saratogian on my mother's side of the family and a 6th generation Saratogian on my father's side of the family. As my mother would always say " we are dyed in the wool Saratogians".
Since 2003, my secondary residence has been in the State of Florida, where I first had an apartment in downtown Hollywood, FL and then I later purchased my current townhome in Ft. Lauderdale. Since 1994 I have been renting rooms in both of my homes to either vacationers or those who were working in the community.
My great grandparents owned a small Inn, located on Loughberry Lake, Saratoga Springs and the idea of making a comfortable home to invite others in to enjoy was born into my blood. I guess it was meant for me to continue on that same path.
Because of my business experience as a Realtor, in 2017 the regional marketing manager from Toronto airbnb found me through his research. He then contacted me and flew in for an appointment to discuss the possibility of us working together, with the idea of me being a Realtor liaison for airbnb hosts and their guests. He and I actually had our 2 hour meeting in this Garden Apartment. Since I have also had a great deal of experience renting my own apartments to vacationers, as well as short and long term tenants, I then decided to try airbnb first with my own apartment to determine how I can offer this service to my real estate clients.
My home and apartment are modest accommodations that are clean, comfortable and of good value to Saratoga Springs visitors .
Thank you for visiting my apartment on this airbnb post. I hope you choose to stay with me.
