Have been lurking for a month or so, and find the forums a bit...addictive! Great sharing of accumulated wisdom and actionable ideas. Finally created an account when I had a comment for a thread that seemed obvious to me but hadn't been mentioned yet...
We (my husband & I) have been in Elmira for four years and are full time real estate investors. I've been in real estate full time for 10 years with a variety of experience (development, renovations, property management, and some time-not current- as a Realtor listing and selling properties). Prior to that I was an equity analyst on Wall Street for 15 years. We really love the Finger Lakes. Yesterday we had nothing hard scheduled after 1pm so we headed up to Seneca Lake and enjoyed some wine tasting :)
My spouse has 30-plus years experience in real estate and is a Realtor (broker) and former developer, mortgage broker and mortgage lender.
We are currently focused on creating home ownership opportunities in Elmira NY. Real estate is our business and our mission. Our goal is to increase housing security and improve neighborhood quality by giving folks paths to home ownership - paths that require hard work, with all the rewards that brings.
Near term goals include creating a web presence (nope, no current website! crazy, right?) and using texts more intensely for both current clients and prospective clients. Oh, and I owe the spouse a whiteboard for the office!
