Testimonials for Martin Salerno


“I am writing this testimonial on behalf of Martin Salerno who made the experience of buying a second home in the Hudson/Catskill area a true pleasure.

When I decided it was time to buy a second home in upstate New York I spent several weekends driving around with friends to explore different areas. As I focused on the Hudson/Catskill area, I met Martin Salerno who came recommended by several friends who were weekenders and knew him on a social level.

Martin was friendly, knowledgeable and most importantly low pressure. In just one conversation, I was convinced he was the broker for me! I told him my priorities were to be close to Amtrak, access to a decent sized farmer’s market, great antique stores and a few nice restaurants. That said, he saved me so much time by focusing our search on just a few towns.

At first, Martin gave me a good understanding for the range of properties based on my tight budget that were out there. However, after another conversation he suggested a small ranch that was in foreclosure. To be honest, I never thought of buying a foreclosed property, having been told they can be nightmares. Most brokers usually push their clients to the upper limit of their budget while he actually suggested buying at a much lower price point.

After a short search, we found the perfect little house well below my original budget in the town of Athens. He literally helped me thru the entire process making things so understandable and easy. I saved so much money on buying my “foreclosed” place that I am using the difference to install a new kitchen, upgrading the bathroom and landscape the property with money to spare!

Since closing Martin has also been a great resource for finding a plumber, electrician and even recommended what water heater I should buy. He has a wealth of local information to offer his clients far beyond just buying a house!

That said, I would highly recommend Martin to anyone looking to buy, sell or even rent a place in the Columbia/Greene/N. Duchess County areas. He really made the process for me affordable, stress free and easy. Many thanks Marty for all your help!” ~ Michiel Roesdi
