Selling or buying… call on experience.

“Meeting your needs, exceeding your expectations.” As a full time real estate professional, I am pleased to assist you in your search for a home in the Seneca and Cayuga Lakes areas of the Finger Lakes. I have extensive experience in selling town, village, lake, and country homes. My comprehensive marketing plans will be adapted to fit your particular needs. For a comparative market analysis, simply call 315-246-9405 (my cell) or 315-226-1243 my direct line at Howard Hanna. Continuing education is important in any business and particularly so with Real Estate as the market changes, the laws change and new financing options and products evolve. Through continued education I have obtained several accreditations. The Finger Lakes is a treasure my husband and I discovered during a vacation visit several years ago. We were so impressed that before we continued on our trip, we bought property and a year later moved here. Boating, kayaking, gardening, book club activities, wine tastings and cheese tastings on our wonderful Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake wine trails and cheese trails, and exploring the wonderful parks are among my favorite leisure time activities. Prior to our move here I enjoyed selling real estate in Connecticut.
