I’m Billy! My extensive background in fine dining and hospitality, having worked at places such as Mohonk Mountain House and Tuthilltown in Gardiner, primed me for becoming an effective, yet conscientious real estate agent.
I love working with buyers who enjoy the Hudson Valley and are looking for a local insider to help guide them to the perfect home for their unique needs and tastes. I take pride in my highly personal approach to working with my clients, keen market knowledge, and tactical offer and negotiation strategies. I’m especially adept in navigating clients through multiple-offer, competitive situations.
I grew up in Queens, and while I stay connected to my city roots, I fell in love with the Hudson Valley back in college while studying philosophy at SUNY New Paltz. I love the scenery and natural beauty of this area, and how close it is to the city.
When I’m not house hunting, I love exploring new restaurants, museums and galleries, working out, reading philosophy, and watching Mets games.
I loved working with Jessica and Billy of the Upstate Curious real estate team. They truly go above and beyond and take everything off your plate. First-time home buyer here! The team will provide fantastic, trusted references to work with. I was very impressed with the teams knowledge, negotiation skills, and responsiveness. If you’re moving from the city or looking into a secondary home, I’d highly recommend the Upstate Curious Team. In just a few months, my upstate experience went from just looking to being a homeowner. Thanks for making it so easy.— Maura C., Glen Spey
Upstate Curious has an awesome culture of agents that create a wonderful sense of community especially for people in the city looking to buy upstate. We worked with Billy Golan who was kind, patient, knowledgeable, and knew how to hustle to get it done! So excited to be part of the Upstate Curious family now!— Connie C.
Lacey was amazing throughout the whole process of my first property purchase. Her knowledge of the area of Ulster Park and many surrounding areas is second to none. Also, Lacey went above and beyond when gathering info for me. There were a lot of details involved in purchasing a multi-family that already had tenants and the whole process went very smoothly thanks to Lacey and Billy. Thanks again!— Keith B.
