Scott Cortright has joined Catskill Country Real Estate. He’s arrived at our firm based on his drive to help families find properties in Sullivan, Ulster, and Orange County, New York. Scott adds a good deal of experience and boots on the ground knowledge bringing our buyers and sellers a multi-dimensional perspective that makes buying or selling a pleasure instead of a nightmare.
Here is Scott’s Bio for your review. Please contact him directly to discuss how his background and experience translates into a powerful buying or selling agent working on your side to make the elusive closing a reality.
Purchasing real estate is, for most people, the single largest lifetime transaction ever made. The experience can be both terrifying and exciting for this very reason. You’ll need to dedicate time to perform substantial due diligence knowing your money and future are on the line and you will have to make some tough decisions.
Having professional help is always a sound idea so you avoid making costly and sometimes irreversible real estate mistakes. Just as you would not set your own broken bone, you’ll need competent and specific guidance from a specialist.
With competence in mind, I’d like to suggest several personal attributes that qualify me to represent your best real estate interests.
Although collecting a commission for services rendered is an obvious motivator, how I earn that dollar is central to our relationship and the following personal characteristics are what ensures you get the very best value when your money is on the table.
I purchased my first home 10 years ago. That experience motivated me to keep up with market development, interest rates, housing stats, and building innovations. Real estate fascinates me which translates into a cache of experience I put to use for you.
I offer solutions to thorny challenges and work hand in glove with you. Since it’s your money and future, I understand just how important a real estate transaction is and treat it that way.
My ten year plus sales experience, honesty, integrity, and discretion contribute to my ability to get the job done for you. And that job is primarily getting you to the closing table. When that happens, the words stop and checks get deposited.
I look at myself as a trusted advisor. I will be by your side to offer dedication, support, advice, negotiation skills, and experience to you. I will never pressure you; you need to be comfortable with either buying or selling. I am here to support you, not pressure you.
If you want to see the nuts and bolts of why my service is valuable, please take some time to read the next section.
Experience – I have experience in sales and in living/conducting business in Sullivan, Ulster, and Orange Counties. I grew up in Sullivan County, attended school in Sullivan County, and am now living in and raising my family in Sullivan County. I have owned homes in each of the three counties, have conducted business in each of the three counties, and have spent my life enjoying many of the activities and beauty that these counties offer.
I have owned newer construction, an older move in ready home, and a home that required complete renovation; I have experience with and know the pros and cons of all three options.
Any of these three counties are great areas in which to purchase real estate; each offers their own benefits, I would be very interested in discussing these with you. In addition to having owned real estate and conducting business in those three counties I have also worked very closely with the construction industry and have a wealth of knowledge relating to site prep, home construction, and the ability to help you locate any services that you may require.
On a more personal level, I have also experienced many of the amenities that this great area offers. I’ve snowmobiled on the hundreds of miles of trails, I’ve kayaked the rivers, I’ve skied in the mountains, I’ve swum in the lakes, and I’ve hiked through beautiful parks; all while enjoying the convenience of being a short drive from New York City. If you chose to use my services you will be getting a competent realtor® with many years of sales experience that will use every resource and bit of knowledge to assure that you are happy with your real estate transaction.
Availability – There is no reason in this day and age, with the technology we have at our fingertips, that your Realtor® should not be available to you. I pride myself in always being accessible whenever a client needs me.
I understand that you have a job, family, and other important things in life that make your time very valuable. I will ensure that your time is not wasted; a real estate transaction can appear to be a very long and intimidating process, but proper preparation and research can take the frustration out of the process and greatly streamline it.
If you need of an experienced and honest sale’s professional, please contact me. I look forward to providing you with excellent service and meeting your real estate needs.
