We are happy to congratulate Adam and Tia on 8 years with the agency this month.
As a lifelong resident of Columbia County, Adam was born and raised in Copake Falls, NY. He spent most of his childhood ski racing down Catamount, and participating in numerous water sports on Copake Lake. Growing up into a family legacy of reputable builders, Adam has learned from the best
carpenters in the county. His grandfather, father and uncles, taught him everything there is to know about building a custom home, from laying down the foundation all the way to the finishing touches. He currently continues the family tradition of exceptional building.
Besides knowing what our area consists of inside and out, his expertise regarding land, land development, and building site construction go hand in hand with the real estate industry. With his background in building, love for interacting with people, and ability for envisioning property potential, it only seemed natural to become a licensed agent, and help the home buyer/seller with this important investment in their life.
Adam enjoys many outdoor activities such as snowmobiling, hunting, golf and spending time with his family out on Copake Lake.
As a Columbia County native and Chatham High School graduate, I have lived here in beautiful upstate NY nearly my entire life. I briefly left the area to attend college, earning a BA in Communications from the University of Central Florida. Prior to returning home, I had wonderful experiences being a brand representative for various marketing firms. I traveled nationwide to advertise and boost sales for a 2003 M&M’s candy campaign, and also team managed a product launch in the Northeast, including our Hudson Valley area, for Dunkin’ Donuts brand.
I always knew I would return to where my roots are and raise my family, which during the past six years I have been a stay at home mom for my two very active boys. I enjoy spending time with my family, and appreciating the incredible outdoors and community events that Columbia County has to offer.With my background in the marketing/promotional industry and love for interacting with people, I believe that strong morals such as honesty, courtesy and respect in all relationships are the most valuable characteristics one should possess when assisting consumers. My goal is to bring the upmost, friendly and positive experience to all home buyers and sellers that I may have the pleasure to work with. I am excited about joining such a reputable, hometown agency as Beach and Bartolo. I look forward to helping people find their dream home.
