Raised in a picturesque farming town in Upstate NY, I began my love of the arts at an early age. After college, I left Upstate NY to begin a career as a successful fashion photographer in New York City. My successes in photography lead me to write 2 books, produce an award winning independent film, and travel the world. But I always yearned for the lifestyle I grew up in, and I found that in the Hudson Valley.
After visiting friends in the area for many years, I decided to make the big move to living here full time, and bought a 110 year old farmhouse. It was the best decision of my life. The friendly community, beautiful country setting, and my proximity to NYC made this the perfect location for me. A place to relax, a friendly villages to explore, and a wide variety of activities in both summer and winter.
I’m able to translate my 20+ years of owning a business to help you navigate through the process of buying or selling a home, seamlessly. I offer my clients personalized attention, helping them through the tough decisions involved. It could be a cozy country cottage, a farmhouse waiting to be restored, or a spectacular mountainside contemporary, I will help you, each step of the way, to achieve your goal of a home that is just right for you.

“My husband and I had the good fortune to meet Eric when we were searching for a home in the Hudson Valley. He worked tirelessly on our behalf, was always enthusiastic, thorough, and thoughtful (we were brought freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies to fuel us during a particularly long day of looking). Eric is deeply knowledgeable about the upstate NY area. He listened to our fairly precise needs, helped steer us towards the perfect home, and walked us through the labyrinth of inspection and banking details. A real gentleman and a true professional, I couldn't recommend him more highly.”
