Peekskill, incorporated in 1816, is becoming one of the most sought after places to be in Westchester County. Making leaps and bounds in so many aspects of life with a raging restaurant scene, fantastic farmers market, artist studios galore, music every weekend in the summer and countless activities at both The Riverfront Green, Division Street Downtown District, The Paramount Theater, and Blue Mountain Reservation why wouldn't you want to be a part of it! On any given day you can see trainloads of people descending upon the streets of Peekskill armed with their coffee from The Peekskill Coffee House, Bean Runner Cafe or Kurzhals Coffee House. Wide eyed they can't wait to see the adventures of the day unfold.
A walk down Main Street will offer you some beautiful sights, sound and smells of what Peekskill has to offer. One of my favorite buildings on Main Street is the building which houses what is know as The Flatz. This historical building is know as The Pugsley Building. Located at 1008 Main Street, The 150 year old Pugsley Building has been know as the " Grande Dame of Downtown Peekskill". It currently is the home of Ramanesque, Westchester Studio, Forman Construction, Zingmap, For All Theater and more! This developments mission statement is:
We develop rental apartments and commercial spaces in underutilized historic properties.
We focus on vibrant and affordable communities.
Our business is self-sustainable; but profits will not be the priority over civic goals.
We enrich the community by providing jobs to residents. Workers develop skills to bring to the local labor market.
Each property we complete will be dignified, and a place that we’d be comfortable to call our own.
Currently there is rental space available if Peekskill has everything you are looking for to have a thriving business. The community is very " locally minded " and extremely supportive of their business community. Do you want to see one of the rental spaces available? Call me to schedule your appointment at (914) 414-0759.

I got into real estate sales by accident in 2006. At the time, I recently earned a Bachelor's Degree in Economics from Lehman College in The Bronx. I had a very entrepreneurial mind and was ready to make my mark in the real estate world. I immediately purchased three multi-family houses in Binghamton, NY. They where fully occupied, however, the manner in which they were being run was not up to par. My brother helped me renovate several units, I let several tenants go and began renting primarily to Binghamton University students. After that, I hired a manager and was on my way.
Without question my favorite part of the business is working with first time buyers. In many cases it is much easier working with clients that have previously bought or sold, however, these transactions can lack enthusiasm. Buyers that have purchased before understand the lengthy process and usually know what's coming next. The first time buyer tends to be younger and has no idea of what to expect. They depend on my guidance and advice right through closing. They embrace challenges with a nervous yet positive outlook and every showing is an adventure. On the other hand, it's rather upsetting when a relationship builds with these clients for several months and comes to a sudden halt after a successful closing. I keep in touch of course with all of my clients but a hello every now and then is quite different than the four days a week contact over a several month period.
