Color Your World


Keuka Lake, Mary St.GeorgeAs real estate agents in the Finger Lakes, we always advise our clients to use neutral colors on the walls when preparing their homes for sale.

However, when you are the new owner – paint away.  The home is now yours and you need and want to put your personal touches on your new space, those touches that make it yours.  You can choose to make your home warm and cozy or bold and lively.  Or you may want to stick to a very conservative and neutral palette.  If you don’t like the color you chose, you can always redo with minimal costs.

A little information about colors:

Blue is great for bedrooms – it is a cool color that brings a calming effect.  Pale blue is a soothing color for a nursery. ( The blue waters of the Finger Lakes are a soothing attraction to visitors)

Purple is regal and royal with the use of deep colors. When lavender is used, it becomes playful.

Green is the color of our world and it creates a feeling of energy.   A great color to put in areas like family rooms.

Canandaigua Lake View From the Lakefront

I came across this video I took ( a very short video ) from a listing that I had on Canandaigua Lake . The listing made it in the USA Today as a featured property and that article set the tone that allowed me to become known as a lakefront property specialist in the Finger Lakes.  I began to receive phone calls from all over the country asking about properties available on the lakes. This property is a luxury property design built with the finest of materials and a layout that allowed unbelievable views from almost every room in the house.


Canandaigua Lakefront – Luxury Lakefront


This spectacular home is available for rent by the current owners at a discounted price of $5500.00 per week in the month of June 2014.

If you would like to purchase a vacation home property in the Finger Lakes or if you own a property that you are considering selling,  I would love to chat with you.  This really is a gem of an area and a treasure of a find.

I Have Gone Mobile !

Going mobile:

I have been blogging for a while now and when Jim Cronin ( the big tomato at theYour Keuka Lake Rea Estate Agent is now mobile !

Real Estate Tomatoes ) asked who would be interested in a mobile version, I jumped right on board.  Just as putting the blog together was, this will be a learning experience as well, but one I look forward to.  

Your Keuka Lake Real Estate Agent is now Mobile !

Currently the mobile version is only available on iPhones, but the tech savvy group at the Real Estate Tomatoes, are working on a version for the Droids.
Of course every time I hear the term going Mobile, I think of the who and their infamous song “Going Mobile”.  It was on one of the first albums I ever purchased.

If you have an iPhone I would love for you to check out the mobile version and would love your feedback.  It is still in the development stage, which means it is continually being updated.

A Keuka Lake Inspired Poem “The Day” by Jonathan Heller

Keuka Lake can be an inspiration for so many things.   A young man by the name of Jonathan Heller wrote the following poem based on his love of Keuka Lake.  Enjoy !



THE DAY by Jonathan Heller

Small waves gently …
splash ashore
Birds sing their morning songs                                           Keuka Lake
Boats start up
As they prepare to go out
Children swim,laugh
The table is set
Dinner is ready
Adults chatter on and on
About their day
Children rush to eat
So they can play hide-n-go-seek
They laugh and scream joyfully
At night the campfire
As marshmallows
All is done
Children are hushed by parents
To sleep….shhhhhh……
The day ends:

Keuka Day
