“Rather than just 'sell a house', I’m interested in helping people realize their ideal lifestyle in the Catskills. To do that, I listen carefully to understand what is of value to someone searching for the right home that will become such an important part of the lifestyle they desire. My role is to discover what buyers want for their new lifestyle, what they have to offer a seller, then generate action to locate their desired property and achieve a match. It's a matter of trust."
Raised in the Netherlands, Esther has lived in Paris, the Canary Islands, New York City, and traveled extensively. "Two decades in the fashion industry have brought me to different corners of the globe and shaped an aesthetic sensibility that appreciates the beauty of the natural world combined with a mix of styles in fashion, art, décor, and homes. I've learned to understand the unique needs of many different types of people.”, shares Esther. "The complement to my personal approach for working with quality home buyers is that home sellers understand that my individual buyers are qualified and interested. As such, I'm asked by savvy home sellers to represent their listings. I care about a good match, so everyone wins."
Fulfill your Dream
After living and working from NYC since 1998, Esther wanted a place to find respite from hectic travel and a fast-paced city life. Esther explains, "One hot city summer when I was eight months pregnant with my daughter, my family and I rented a vacation house and I quickly fell in love with the beauty and peace of the Catskills. Discovering such breathtaking space not far from NYC, yet far from everything that is NYC, has been an amazing experience. I've lived and worked around the world, but for numerous lifestyle reasons I've chosen the Catskills as my ideal home.” Whether you’re looking for a full-time or part-time home, whether you’re interested in land, a Cape, Victorian, 19th century farmhouse, log cabin or a contemporary style home, contact Esther today for an introduction to this magical area.
