A Snap Shot of 2020

2020 has been a year like we have never seen before. A pandemic fueled rush from COVID-19 led to an escape of the urban lifestyle to rural mountain and lake settings like our region. The many towns in the Adirondacks six million acres were booming with folks within a 6 hour drive from the greater New York City Area. Sales thus far on November 1st, 2020 are up 42% at our firm and transaction volume will smash a record high of $122M putting us potentially above $500M in just under 3 years time. As inventory levels slow with this constant demand we expect values to hold or increase going forward and suggest that if you are in the market to sell, NOW is the time. Our high transaction volume is a testament to an experienced and knowledgeable sales team and quality, well priced offerings. We are proud of our results, but more importantly of the way we do business, and we look forward to working with you. There is no better place to be than here in the mountains.
