Looking to leave NYC behind and embrace Catskills living? Loving upstate life and want to make a change?
Tap our expert real estate team for hands-on guidance throughout the entire home buying process, from identifying what you really want and need, to finding the perfect property for your taste, goals, and budget.
Whether it's your first home, vacation home, or the next step for your family, let us help you find your place to belong.
We're there from beginning to end (and beyond!), like a knowledgeable best friend dedicated to helping you find the perfect home: from contemporary chalets and A-frames to historic farmhouses and mid-century modern ranches.
Our team is small, so we work with a limited number of clients each year, allowing us to offer a highly personal home buying experience. Trust us to listen and always be honest with you.
We live, work, and play here, so we know which communities would be a fit for your desired lifestyle, family, and day-to-day "vibe." Let us point your home search in the right direction.
As real estate agents, we've seen it all, and have an eagle eye for red flags that home buyers may overlook. We'll point out the good and the bad of any property we look at together.
Check out the expert agents that you could have in your corner — a team, not just a solo agent.
We created a questionnaire that’s designed to be thought-provoking, help us get to know you, and help you consider your priorities for an upstate home.
The Lead Buyer Agent matches you with a dedicated buyer’s agent based on your answers. They might be a great fit cause of where they live or something specific about your search!
Your agent will reach out to schedule a call where you’ll refine your search criteria together, talk about potential areas, and answer any and all questions about the process.
Your agents will send you homes - sometimes ones that you’d never think to see but that they think could be perfect - keep an open mind cause we often find a match in the first outing!
We’ve developed specific strategies to get your offer to the front of the line that don’t involve just paying more or switching to 100% cash (although those help :)
You’ll get a number of recommendations from carefully vetted inspectors who should be able to walk you through this super thorough process with clarity and ease.
At this point your attorney (we have great recs there also!) and your dedicated Transaction Coordinator from our team take the lead on the process - with your agent also staying in close touch throughout.
We’ll get you prepped for closing, go to the walkthrough with you, and do everything we can to set you up for success. (Pro tip: download our app to connect with lots of other homeowners!!)
We love our clients and see our support role as lasting well beyond closing, so you’ll have an open-door policy for anything you need - and hopefully, we’ll see you at events, meals, or your new home!
Chelsea has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I honestly would say that working with her has made the experience of finding a home feel like fun instead of work. She grew up in the Hudson Valley and is incredibly knowledgable on the area. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home upstate.— Nate A., Buyer, Germantown
Chelsea is wonderful!! My husband and I were having a hard time finding someone responsive who we could trust, and we immediately loved working with Chelsea. She gave us her full attention and was very dedicated to finding a place for us, even in this crazy upstate market right now. She is incredibly knowledgable about the area and well connected in the market. She is always quick to respond and kept us in the loop throughout the process. Any time we needed a recommendation for an inspector, lawyer, or contractor, etc. she was there with great options and would step in to follow up and get a response from them if needed. She also has a great feel fo...— Emma M., Buyer, Big Indian
I can't speak highly enough of Chelsea. She made a hectic, stressful process as enjoyable as it could have been. We had a pretty limited budget and were looking to buy in a market gone crazy, but working with Chelsea really felt like having a lioness in our corner. She genuinely understood us and had our best interest at heart. She supported us every step of the way, gave great advice, and was very patient. Not to mention all the car rides, and the laughs, and the general camaraderie. She's just a very sweet, ridiculously competent person.— Selma A., Buyer, Catskill
Chelsea is a fantastic real estate broker and I cannot recommend her services enough. As first-time homebuyers, my partner and I were in need of serious support as we went through the process, and Chelsea guided us through every step. From our first phone call her experience in local real estate was evident, as she clearly has her finger on the pulse of the Hudson Valley market. She immediately made us feel comfortable going forward with purchasing a home. Chelsea’s local connections were extremely helpful along the way, recommending a terrific building inspector and local attorney that were enormous resources for us. Her work ethic was also grea...— Joshua N., Buyer + Seller, Hudson
Monica was warm, communicative, and efficient. She was also a good advocate for us as buyers. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent!— Jorge H., Buyer, Ferndale
Monica was absolutely outstanding and helped me find my dream home and scoop it up before anyone else could. She’s incredibly cool, responsive, thoughtful, thorough, and has great relationships throughout the Hudson Valley she leveraged to make the process as smooth as possible. Thanks again, Monica!— Nick G., Buyer, Wawarsing
Monica is the BEST real estate agent you could ask for! I highly recommend Monica for her professional expertise in multiple counties, super fast response time to all questions, incredible memory (think 8 addresses to visit on a day long search), her friendliness, and her incredible ability to put a first time home buyer (me!) at ease. I was a challenging client in that I had a low price point and was picky with knowing I wanted a "diamond in the rough". Monica spent countless weekends tirelessly searching until she found me my DREAM HOME. She helped me every step of the way and stood up for me when I needed her help with a very difficult mortgage b...— Jennifer G., Buyer, Westbrookville
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., Buyer, Glen Spey
I love the Upstate Curious Team. They were so helpful with finding us the exact right property Upstate. We were the most annoying clients and they were the most patient realtors. They know what they're doing; they're also able to be flexible and have a sense of humor. Since buying our property we've now gotten to know the area more and are so impressed with how much the Upstate Curious Team is involved in the community. They are not just about selling real estate; they are really connected to the area and very supportive of organizations and businesses that define the various Upstate communities. Megan and her team are really knowledgeable abou...— Gwen R., Buyer, Accord
Working with Danny and team, was a breath of fresh air. They were responsive, professional and a joy to work with !! Our house has offers in the first hour due to the website, professional photographs and social feed. The company has an amazing client base. My biggest feedback is they are honest and as a client I felt I could trust them, they did not push or suggest anything to sell the house faster that was dishonest. An amazing company !!!— Jeanette G., Seller + Buyer, Rock Hill
We listed our house with the Upstate Curious Team and couldn't be more pleased. From the first contact with them and throughout the entire process they were extremely professional, knowledgeable and proficient. The listing photos, video and staging made our home look it's best. With their outstanding marketing efforts, we had an accepted offer within a few days! I would highly recommend them for your real estate needs.— Matt C., Seller, Claryville
I love Megan and her team at Upstate Curious. Dynamic and willing to listen and try new things, while gently guiding us when we needed to be.— Leong O., Seller, High Falls
Danny is the absolute best. In a high stress, highly emotional process, he made everything feel low key in the best possible way. And with the whole Upstate Real Estate team behind him, we were so please with the partnership beginning to end. The next time we sell, it’ll be Danny, no question.”— Blake M., Seller, Catskill
Danny is the realtor you want if you are looking to sell your home. He sold our house in Rhinebeck in spring 2021, and we got multiple offers and accepted the highest one within a week. The process was so stress free and seamless it blew our minds. Danny (and everyone at KW) exudes a low-key coolness that embodies what everyone loves about the Hudson Valley and the Catskills. It’s a sort of easy-going intelligence. He isn’t pushy or aggressive, but behind the scenes there is an aggressive and intelligent marketing strategy going on. He knows the area really well, but more importantly knows what buyers from NYC are looking for and helps you to market...— Hilary L., Seller, Rhinebeck
Megan helped me purchase my first home, an A-frame in upstate New York. I had no idea what I was doing and was pretty nervous through the entire process. I can't say enough how amazing she was throughout: instrumental in negotiations, helping me get to know people, places, and services in the area. On top of all this, she's a very positive and fun person, and she has a super cute pup. I've already recommended her to all my friends — anyone would be lucky to work with her!— Nick J., Buyer + Seller, Gardiner
Megan tuned in to our unusual requirements with uncanny supersonic swiftness, so fast, in fact, that the first home she showed us was the one we chose! The listing, surprisingly, was one that we might have completely overlooked without her guidance, so it was fortuitous that we met her. We are beyond thrilled with our home-buying experience with Megan.— Jenny, Buyer, Cragsmoor
Megan is great! We sold our house through her. We had had another real estate agent try to sell our house with no luck. It seemed that they merely listed the house and waited for a buyer to approach them. Not Megan. She had a real sense of who would want our home and knew how to reach out to them. She is fantastic at tuning in to little things that can make a difference. Megan is a marketing wizard. She kept us informed and was reachable whenever we needed her. I highly recommend her to sell your house.— Michelle S., Pine Bush, Seller
Megan was a joy to work with from day one. I found her online and am so glad I did, as the first house she showed me on my first day of ever looking at houses ended up being "the one!" Highly recommend her not only for real estate expertise but for her deep local knowledge and connections.— Elizabeth H., Buyer, Accord
Working with Megan was like buying a house with your best friend. She knew immediately what we were looking for (almost better than we did) and helped us land our perfect first home in Kingston. We appreciated her insightful thoughts on home value and location, and how she helped expertly guided us through a bidding war. If you want to have fun navigating the scary and sometimes stressful process of buying a home, then Megan will be your hero. Promise. Now, as quasi-neighbors, she's since become a good friend and contact.— Justin R., Buyer, Kingston
