Usually when agents start talking about referrals, people assume they’re hunting for new listings or more buyers to represent. This isn’t one of those posts!


In fact, I wish more people would come to me looking for referrals in the community. I am local lifelong resident of the Hudson Valley.  A good real estate agent knows people in the community you can trust, and I’m always happy to provide the connection for local referrals in Highland or New Paltz.


If you think about it, agents pretty much interact with all of the people dedicated to protecting, improving, or maintaining your biggest asset: Your home. Whether it’s a local insurance agent in New Paltz, an honest contractor In Highland, or a crack crew of yard and maintenance people in Gardiner, agents are great sources of “who you should know.” (Count on me as a reliable source of locals-only community info by liking my Facebook page- Barbara Carter Realtor from the Gunks to the Hudson.)


It’s too bad that agents are often involved only in the sale or purchase of a house. I prefer to think of myself as a lifetime consultant to my clients, and providing the names of people I would stake my reputation on is simply a part of my ethical obligation to serve my clients.


So, by all means, if you’re looking for someone in the New Paltz, Gardiner or Highland NY area, drop me a line. I’d be more than happy to help.
