LICENSED RE BROKER
I am a native of Brooklyn (Brooklyn Tech. and Brooklyn College) and have lived in Phoenicia both full and part-time since 1972. This has helped me to gain a very thorough knowledge of the central Catskills region. I began as a Lic. Salesperson at Ruth Gale Realty in 2004 and became the owner in 2007. Currently I am a Director on the Board of Ulster County Board of Realtors and was a Director on The Ulster County Multiple Listing Service for 2014-2015. In my prior business life I worked for the NY Telephone Co. (now Verizon), IBM and Dana Corp. In 1980 I opened Auto Internationale Foreign Auto Parts in Brooklyn with a partner and no employees, and sold it in 2001 with two locations and 30 employees. The Catskills have always held a magical attraction for my wife Jane and me (married in 1967) and we were finally able to become full-time Phoenicia residents in 2002. I am active in the local community currently being Chairman of the Phoenicia Water Committee. The principal goal of Ruth Gale Realty is to operate a business which makes ethical, honest and fair real estate transactions for both buyers and sellers. My home office telephone number is 845-688-7361.

LICENSED RE SALESPERSON
Since relocating to Woodstock 22 years ago, I have been associated with Ruth Gale Realty for 20 of those years. The Catskill mountains drew us, as it has so many of my clients .I feel that my past experience working in N.Y.C in the fields of Interior Design and Product Design gives me a unique ability to understand a client's esthetic needs . This translates to an ability to aid them in finding a home that meets their requirements. I have continued my own interest in the arts with my work in the ceramics field and enjoy the opportunity to live in the mountains, garden, hike and meet like-minded people. My home office telephone number is 845-688-5809.

LICENSED RE SALESPERSON
My love for the Catskills / Hudson Valley and my family's long-standing presence in Woodstock has kept me in the area while others have come and gone. With the goal of making a positive impact on my community and the environment, I graduated from Marist College with a dual major in Environmental and Political Science, minoring in Economics. I was a Senior Planner for a Hudson Valley-based Planning and Development Consulting firm for over a decade and was admitted to the American Institute of Certified Planners. My work primarily involved municipal planning services (reviewing Site Plans, Subdivisions, etc) and environmental impact analysis and review pursuant to New York State's SEQR act. Sounds like important and community-changing work, but more often than not it was bureaucracy, opposing interests and unsatisfying compromises. I had already bought and sold a couple of homes in Woodstock when a friend suggested I should get a real estate license. As it turns out, helping people buy and sell real estate is a much more fun and uniquely challenging way to positively impact my local environment. After moving to the mountains of Shandaken in 2010, I chose to pursue real estate full time (and end a very long commute to Beacon!). I have experience with all types of real estate transactions and do not discriminate based on price range -- whether you are looking for a 100k home or a million dollar home, you will receive top-notch professional and ethical service. My buyer clients have purchased exactly what they were looking for, often for a much better price than they anticipated!

LICENSED RE SALESPERSON
I have always been a New York Fan and with that comes loyalty, commitment and lots of energy. As a kid growing up in Long Island, NY, I learned early that a combination of strong family values and a savvy business sense would be my edge. I graduated from the business school at the University of Miami and my next path was raising kids and working for my family retail business specializing in site selection, lease negotiations, store operations, human resources and sales. I am a marathoner and triathlete and have tons of energy. My passion for learning, business and people is a winning combination that brings me to Ruth Gale. There is a lot of mystery and beauty in the Catskills mountains to be shared. I have joined the team here in Phoenicia and am ready to work with you to find the best fit for the NY fan in you.
