Welcome to my website – your gateway to the lifestyle available to you in the Hudson Valley! My passion is horses, houses and family, and my mission is to help you find the next buyer for the home you love,  and to help buyers find the home that makes their dream a reality.

I have lived in Columbia County since 1990, when we moved here to begin a horse farm and raise our children.  My real estate career began in 1986 with Notas Associates in Somers, NY (Westchester County) and I am proud to be able to bring to Columbia County, the professionalism and integrity that Houlihan and Lawrence offers at every step of the purchasing and sales process.  I concentrate on the areas of Northern Dutchess, Columbia and Greene counties, and I can help you find the house of your dreams whether it is your first home, your first vacation property, or a luxurious estate.

My husband Steven still commutes to the business we began together in 1986, the Croton Sailing School and the EAST Sailing Academy, www.crotonsailing.com, and I also operate Broad Reach Farm, www.broadreachequineretirement.com , an equine retirement boarding farm from our home.  Our five children have been involved with nearly every artistic and athletic offering imaginable, and I welcome the opportunity to share the rich tapestry of offerings in recreation and the arts that is available in the Hudson Valley.  In fact,  the wide array of the arts is often cited by new residents as one of the most surprising gifts of our rural community. 

When we first bought our 1830’s farm over twenty years ago it was euphemistically described as “needing TLC.”  Five building projects later, we have been thrilled with the workmanship and integrity to be found in local contractors.  Whatever project you are considering on your home, I can give you the names of several reputable contractors to bid on your project.
