I am living the marketer’s dream: sell what you love, because I am a real estate agent based in Lake Placid, New York. I am an entrepreneur and former business executive and have more than 30 years business and personal experience in Lake Placid and the surrounding area. I have been helping happy buyers find their piece of Adirondack paradise and selling property throughout the Adirondack region since 2006. Thanks for visiting.

I have cycled, ran, paddled, skied, and swam thousands of miles throughout the Adirondack region. I’m also a business person with a specialty in marketing who now has the marketer’s dream job: sell something you love. I love the Adirondack Mountain region of northern New York. If you are reading this, either you do too, or you will soon.

My real estate specialties and interests include Adirondack Great Camps, luxury lake property, international sales, commercial property, resort, alpine, ski and vacation properties, investment property, and the special real estate needs of outdoor sport enthusiasts. I lived abroad and am fluent in German. I dabble in Italian.

A communicator by nature and profession, I founded and publish the online magazine, Adirondack Lifestyle, a photo-rich account of life and culture in the Adirondack mountains. I love introducing people to the awesome Adirondack Lifestyle and helping others reach their real estate, personal, and business goals.

I am associated and work with Merrill L. Thomas, Inc., the leading real estate firm in the Adirondack region, located on Main Street in Lake Placid, New York. Merrill L. Thomas was the first company in the Adirondack region to establish a full-time vacation rental department. Merrill L. Thomas, Inc., has been ranked first in sales volume by the Adirondack Champlain MLS since 2005. The Merrill L. Thomas agency has sold more Adirondack Great Camps than any other firm. This is the authentic Adirondack real estate firm.

Although life in the Adirondack Mountains is fun, buying and selling property is serious business. My clients get the knowledge only experience brings. I made a lifestyle decision and bought my first property in Lake Placid 31 years ago. I’ve worked in up markets and depressed markets, buyer’s markets and seller’s markets. I know where the best internet service is located and where you can go if you want to disconnect and be completely out of touch. I was an economic development executive in the Adirondacks and served on community boards; I know which communities are hopping and growing, and which have sleepy mountain chalets surrounded by forested solitude. Drop me a line or give me a call at 518.524.2712, if you would like to discuss my real estate services.

Lake Placid is my kind of town. How about you?
