I was born and raised in Chemung County and 'grew up' in a Real Estate and Insurance business, which my father started in the 1930's. Except for time spent in Colleges in Utica and Buffalo, working in New York City and Buffalo, serving my country in the U.S. Navy, my own local experience spans over 45 years of Residential and Commercial Real Estate Listing and Sales. The Company was the ‘Blauvelt Insurance Agency’ and ‘Blauvelt Real Estate, The Gallery of Homes®’. My association with RealtyUSA and now Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, has greatly expanded my business and the services I can now offer to my Buyers and Sellers.
I am very involved with the Elmira-Corning Regional Board of REALTORS®, Inc., having served two terms as President, and a Director for many years, Chairman of several Committees and a member of the Multiple Listing Committee. I have also served as a Regional Vice President for the New York State Association of REALTORS®, Inc., and have served on many committees and also Chairman of Several. I have been honored by having been named first as REALTOR ASSOCIATE® Of-The-Year and then later honored as REALTOR® Of-The-Year and have also been inducted into the local REALTORS® Hall of Fame along with my father.
I believe in giving back and working with the community and am involved with many organizations, several of which are: Horseheads Rotary, Past President and Paul Harris Fellow; Horseheads Old Oak Masonic Lodge #364, Past Master; Royal Arch Masons Chapter #261, Treasurer; Cashmere Grotto #45, Past Monarch; Horseheads OES Chapter #423; Horseheads Merchants Association; Amateur Radio Operator N20JM; Chemung County Amateur Radio Emergency Services, Emergency Coordinator for Chemung County; Amateur Radio Relay League, District Emergency Coordinator for Chemung, Steuben and Schuyler County; Amateur Radio Association of the Southern Tier, Inc., Director; and also work with the Village of Horseheads Neighborhood Watch Program.
