You deserve a real estate transaction that surpasses your expectations. Wendie Reid will give you that experience!

In 1989, I opened Wendie Reid Realty in the village of Gardiner. Most of my business came from past clients and referrals. That says a lot. And, it is still true. Having a real estate transaction is a lot more complex and potentially stressful than most people imagine. My extensive knowledge and 25 years of experience will lead you through a hand-held one to one sale or purchase. I will be there with you every step of the way. 

Anyone who knows me will agree that whatever I do, I put everything into it. I received my real estate license in October 1985, and by February 1986 I had sold over two million dollars worth of real estate. This was not beginners luck. I worked long, hard hours. I signed up for every real estate course that was available to me, attended local, state and national real estate conferences, and quickly earned nationally accredited designations. I consistently won national level sales awards during my four years with a large national franchise real estate firm.

As the chairperson of the Southern Ulster Area MLS Agent Tours since 1990, I can truly say that I may have seen more homes in my market area than any other agent around. I have marketed more than ten major subdivisions and many more minor subdivisions. I have designed and helped build many spec houses for my developer-clients. Helping a customer transition from selling their current home and buying or building a new home is one of my areas of expertise. I have marketed and sold multimillion-dollar country estates and large tracts of land for development.

I have seen many changes in the real estate market, and in the real estate industry during my 23 years in the business. But some things have not changed.

  1. You want a Broker who can help you prepare your home for market.
  2. You want a Broker who knows the market area and local prices.
  3. You want a Broker who has years of experience and knowledge.
  4. You want a Broker who can skillfully negotiate on your behalf.
  5. You want a Broker who knows how to market your home effectively.
  6. You want a Broker who listens to your needs and acts accordingly.
  7. You want a Broker who you will respond to your calls and concerns quickly. 

You will see by reading my credentials, areas of expertise and courses I have taken over the years, that my skills and success have been earned. Please allow me to put them to work for you!
