Deborah Kinney Celebrates 17 years with Beach & Bartolo Realtors

Congratulations to Deborah Kinney for 17 years of working with Beach & Bartolo Realtors. Get to know more about Deborah below.

Deborah Kinney, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker

Before I moved to this area, I worked as a real estate agent in NYC. I began with extensive training offered by Century 21, then joined MJ Raynes RE, moved onto William B. May, and there spent several years developing skills geared towards the investment RE market.

I was perfectly positioned then to assist my clients who had anticipated the RE market crash of the late 80’s. I eventually joined Morgan Barrington as Director Of Investment Sales. During those years I began visiting this region. My RE philosophy remains one in which the investment potential of purchasing RE is my primary focus in guiding my customers & clients.

It is my pleasure to find you your dream property or sell your current property, and I will work gladly at those tasks, but I will also do my best to enhance your financial portfolio with a profitable return.

Reta Tiano Celebrates First Year With Beach & Bartolo

Congratulations to Reta Tiano on his one year anniversary with Beach & Bartolo Realtors. Get to know more about Reta below.

Reta Tiano, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

I was fortunate enough to be born into a legacy of Columbia County real estate and agriculture, as my parents owned and operated Milton Meisner Realty, for decades.  And for over a century, we have farmed this beautiful county.  I was raised here and chose to do the same for the next generation.  This county is my community and in such a small area, everyone is connected.

My background is diverse, including knowledge in the fields of accounting, general contracting, farming and real estate.  I am not new to this industry, as I was licensed in real estate at age 18.  I hold a BBA in Accounting from Sienna College and am the owner of Reta Tiano Consulting, a financial management business.

In some ways it feels as if I have come full circle, but with much more experience and wisdom.  I have learned the soul of money and the uniqueness of each individual’s needs, which like a garden, must be nurtured and respected.  It is a great honor to hold one’s trust and advocate on their behalf in order to assist in achieving their desired goals.

I look forward to servicing my clients to the best of my abilities and promise to bring honesty and integrity to every dealing.

Great News For Columbia County

If you haven’t been reading the papers lately, you may have missed some very exciting and important news about our area.
A recent NY Times article stated that out of 926 metro areas, Hudson was Number 1, with the largest net migration. NYC residents have discovered Columbia County, and many now call it home. The pandemic allowed people to discover that not only could they successfully work from home, they could also enjoy a totally different, more relaxed lifestyle, with the added benefit of the great outdoors. Another boost to our community is a recent article that appeared on Realtor.com that indicated that Hudson ranked 5th of places people were purchasing second homes. This year alone, Hudson has seen an 18.7 increase in the purchase of second homes. Part of the attraction to our area is the availability of Amtrak, and it’s easy access to NYC thus giving New Yorkers an easy means to stay connected to the city. As more & more people discover what we already knew, we can expect Columbia County to continue to grow and prosper.

Brian Wagner Celebrates Second Year!

Congratulations to Brian Wagner who is celebrating his Second year with Beach & Bartolo Realtors.

Brian David Wagner, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Brian fell in love with real estate 24 years ago when he bought his first home in Boston. He became so enamored with the whole process and the thrill of finding that perfect home that he put that passion to great use over the years by helping several friends navigate the waters on their way to finding the perfect home too, all while buying and selling several of his own. So, when he and his husband bought a weekend home in Austerlitz 13 years ago, it was only natural to begin a discussion of putting that passion to use in a more formal way once he was ready to leave the corporate world!

6 years ago Brian got his real estate license, 4 years ago he and his husband moved full time from NYC to their home in Austerlitz and the rest as they say is history! Brian brings over 30 years of business acumen to his career in real estate, having spent countless hours negotiating for and supporting his clients. This business knowledge coupled with his passion for real estate and love of Columbia County means someone who knows his way around a deal and will always be in your corner!
