Our experience was wonderful on all accounts with Abbie as our real estate agent. She guided us through preparation of our house for sale and helped us determine an appropriate list price: we had a full price offer on our house within a week! Abbie was also very resourceful and responsive to us as we searched for a larger house in the same area. She's a wonderful asset to the community; we are pleased to give Abbie our highest recommendation

Hi, I have known and worked with Abbie for almost ten years. We were new to the area in 2006 and interested in buying a home. Despite finding our dream home on day 1 of our search, it took us two years and a lot of house hunting to finally close on a beautiful property overlooking the Hudson Valley in Garrison. Through it all, Abbie was patient, understanding and just a solid person trying to help us find our ideal home. We never felt any pressure to close or that we were wasting her time. Instead, we ended up becoming great friends. This past year, I asked Abbie to help find a site to establish a private school in the area. We ended up buying the Plumbush Inn in Cold Spring, which is an amazing property with historic significance. The process of finding a suitable site, negotiating the deal, and getting planning board approval was very trying. From start to finish, Abbie was a great partner - it took over a year to complete the transaction and we could not have done it without Abbie's solid support and guidance. If you have any needs in the area, I would strongly encourage you give Abbie a call.. she knows Putnam County inside-out and is a terrific person with two amazing daughters who grew up in Garrison. I would be happy to speak as a reference if you needed more details. Best of luck!

I can't say enough fantastic things about working with Abbie Carey: She showed immense professional knowledge and experience, very deep local knowledge, was endlessly patient and full of useful and helpful information about the area (I was relocating), and she couldn't show me enough houses, because I did want to see a lot of houses, and she did. She always listened to my parameters, showed me the right kinds of houses that didn't meet them -- I never felt I was wasting time. And, to get to the point, I bought a house that I adore adore adore adore. It's just perfect and every single day I am so happy I bought it. Thanks, Abbie!

From our first meeting to the final sale of our home, Abbie's professionalism was exemplary. Her local knowledge was instrumental in helping us quickly sell for a work related relocation. She helped us price the property appropriately, provided professional photography, and was always available to   answer questions and work with our relocation company. Abbie was also happy to work around our schedules to ensure a smooth sale; we can highly recommend her.

Abbie is outstanding. She is extremely professional, completely reliable, and very knowledgeable. When I hired her to sell my house, she took it upon herself to contact water testers and other necessary experts and to be at the house if I was not able to. She made the whole process painless. Her   recommendations for contractors, legal assistance etc... were fantastic. She has subsequently helped me buy and rent my present home and we have become dear friends. I cannot recommend her enough.

We recently purchased our perfect house with the expert guidance of Abbie Carey. Moving from city apartment living to a house up the Hudson was a huge change and we had much to learn about the market, about houses and about what we wanted. Abbie was extraordinarily helpful all along the way. She   pointed out both the positive and negative features of every property she took us to. She listened to our every concern and wish. As a resident in the area herself she was extremely informative about the region. We never felt that Abbie was trying to sell us a house, but rather that she was skillfully facilitating what we ourselves wanted. Working with her was a completely pleasurable experience and we would recommend her wholeheartedly.
