Boiceville, NY (PRWEB) June 30, 2013
Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties recently celebrated the grand opening of its fourth real estate office in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. The newest office is located at 3998 State Highway 28 in Boiceville.
The expansion of the company, the premier real estate company in the Catskill Mountains with offices in Margaretville, Delhi, and Stamford, eastward into Ulster County is a natural progression, according to Timberland Properties president and principal broker Eric Wedemeyer.
"The Route 28 corridor is the primary highway that brings visitors into this part of the Catskill Mountain region," said Wedemeyer, "and our Boiceville office will enable us to present additional opportunities for our buyers and sellers. Having an office in Boiceville gives us a strong presence at the gateway to the Catskills."
This most recent expansion of the real estate agency comes just as the national real estate industry is emerging from its worst slump in history.
"It has been a very rough ride during the past six years--the greatest downturn in real estate history--even worse than during the Depression," Wedemeyer noted.
Compounding the economic downturn locally was the devastation caused by Hurrican Irene in 2011 and Superstorm Sandy last year. Both weather events, according to Wedemeyer, led many downstate residents to put their Catskill region real estate purchases on hold.
Despite the recent difficult years, Wedemeyer is pleased that Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties will have emerged from the downturn with more offices and in a position to better serve buyers seeking real estate opportunities in the Catskills.
"Our company is coming out this period with more offices and agents, and we're stronger than ever to properly and professionally cater to our clients' needs," Wedemeyer noted.
Wedemeyer also noted that one of the reasons for the choice of the Boiceville location is that "it's at the entry to the pristine and natural beauty that you see when you look up from your vehicle and observe the incredible mountain view in front of you."
