Comment: My husband and I look the leap to move out of the city, and we were so happy to have Ann on the journey with us! It was so great having someone by our side that was so knowledgeable about the area and so excited to have more folks move to the Hudson Valley (we found our home in New Paltz).More than anything - Ann was so patient and so supportive at every turn. I cant recommended her enough! Thank you so much Ann!

Comment: Claudia should be kept a secret so I hesitate to write this review, but sometimes you just have to do the right thing for the greater good. To say she goes above and beyond is an understatement. She is a breath of fresh air in a cut-throat business (especially in this market). She responds instantly, listens, is willing to get dirty (literally), does her research, is tireless and smart, has a sense of humor, is reasonable, and follows up even after there is nothing else to be gained. I cant recommend Claudia and this small, local business more highly. Thank you!

Comment: My partner and I reached out to Ann when starting our search for a home in the Hudson Valley. From our very first conversation, it was clear that Ann understood exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the entire process she was helpful, patient, and communicative and always provided her honest and insightful advice. When we finally found “the one,” she was quick to act with a smooth and prompt closing. We couldn’t be happier with Ann’s services and highly recommend working with her.

Comment: Ann is amazing! We can’t thank her enough for finding our family the perfect home in what was a crazy market. Ann wisely told us when to let a house go and then found the perfect home for us. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the home-buying process. (During inspection she was super helpful with recommendations and was there with us to ask key questions.) We can’t thank her enough and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Comment: I would wholeheartedly recommend Ann to first time homebuyers in the Hudson River area. My partner and I moved to Westchester after years in Brooklyn. We found Ann’s firm online and met her at a coffee shop in Beacon, and were immediately impressed by her knowledge of the area and compassion for homebuyers moving out of the city. It’s a very different world! Having a relaxed initial conversation, where we had time to talk about who we were and what mattered to us, was very important. She set up an MLS search and we began touring homes the next weekend.As we began the search we immediately found a house that we fell in love with. But Ann did not pressure us to make an offer - she insisted that we take our time and enjoy the home buying process. As we continued to look at more homes, it became clear that first home was our match. She coached us through the logistics and tactics of making an offer. The market has been very chaotic, but with Ann we ultimately secured about 7% off the listed price!A small but very important point: Ann is very, very responsive. When buying a home there are so many questions, followups and tasks. It makes such a difference to have work with someone who can keep track of it all and resolve these things in a timely manner.We couldn’t be happier with our first home. Thank you Ann! We hope to work with you again!

Comment: Ann is an amazing real estate agent and superb advocate for new homebuyers. We quickly came to appreciate her honesty and deep knowledge of the local market. She managed to steer us through one of the most difficult real estate markets and help us find a great home. We never experienced any pressure from her and she openly told us when something felt too expensive to her - even if she might have benefited financially. She was already treating us like a neighbor and we are thankful we found her. I cannot recommend her and her team enough.

Comment: Our experience working with Ann could not have been better. Throughout a turbulent and ultra-competitive market, Ann was patient with our purchasing decision. She paid close attention to our preferences on home type, location, and price range and curated many options for our consideration. Never once did we feel pressured to purchase something that was not a 100% fit. We have found an incredible property and are beyond thrilled with Anns fantastic advocacy. We would highly recommend!

Comment: Anns attention to detail and calm but enthusiastic manner meant the world to me! Her attention was on us and our home. As a broker or middle wo/man she was in line and understood her duties. She passed information on to us and let us do the deciding. As a human being helping us sell our house, she listened, she gave suggestions, she kept us on track & she followed thru with everything she said she would! Everything from the photographer to the open house went smoothly. She has the ability to explain legalize and contract. She never used cookie cutter language in the listing which was a piece of art to me! Actually, her website is a piece of art. You can tell from her website the personal attention she puts into everything. If you are looking to sell your home I highly highly recommend ANN!

Comment: Ann and her team are now part of our family! She was a professional and steady hand, helping to guide us through a competitive market, and in dealing with some very difficult sellers... she was always optimistic and gave very wise counsel all the way through. We were moving from California and she made the long-distance search process smooth and simple. Always there when we need her. Never missed a phone call or email. Over the summer while Ann was away, Claudia stepped in without missing a beat! They work seamlessly as a team. The most important part = They cared about us as a family! Ann is personally invested in all her clients and it feels good to have someone always in your corner. And now we have the house thats just perfect for us and our 2 dogs! We couldnt be happier where we are, and we could not have done it without Ann and Claudia. Theyre GREAT!!!!

Comment: Ann was terrific is assisting with the purchase of our new home as well as the sale of our old home. Selling and/or buying a home can be stressful, but Ann made the whole experience great. She was very attentive and always had our best interests in mind. She knows the Hudson Valley area very well and was able to advise us on every aspect of the process from lawyers to photographers to painters! Id recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone buying or selling a real estate!!

Comment: Contrary to what you may have heard, houses do not sell themselves. They need a champion who “gets” the house, envisions who that buyer will be, and how to reach them. As a seller, we were so happy we trusted Ann and Hudson River Line Realty to sell our home. She hustles, listens, thinks creatively and doesn’t give up. With some of the other bigger brokers, we felt like we would be just one in their array of listings, garnering fleeting attention. With Ann we always felt like her number 1 priority. Yes, ultimately your house is what they are buying. But it will not happen without a realtor like Ann working to find those buyers. And she will.

Comment: Ann McBride-Alayon is an extraordinary buyer’s agent – a truly strong advocate in todays out-of-control market. Ann ensured that we understood the context of the market in times of Covid, advised us when to take a second or third look at a property and, most importantly, when to walk away. Her patience and moxie were key in finding the perfect country home for us. We highly recommend Ann for her professionalism and exceptional client service. A better agent would be difficult to find.

Comment: Highly recommend Ann if youre looking for a broker! I worked with Ann for over a year in my home buying journey and finally closed on a house. Throughout, Ann was always patient and helpful. I never felt pressured to make an offer and she was always honest when she didnt feel the home was worth the asking price. She knows the Hudson Valley well and was also able to recommend a great inspector and lawyer. Im so thankful to have worked with Ann as a first time home buyer!

Comment: Ann showed us a number of houses and was very helpful as we considered the benefits and downsides of each. She used that to focus our search, and was willing to do Zoom walk throughs to save us time. She then helped us to find and buy THE house we wanted, even when there was already an accepted offer on it! She continued to be engaged, responsive and generous with her time and assistance, through closing, and even since then as weve had questions and have looked for suggestions in the area. Ann is great.

Comment: We were first-time home buyers and new to the area. Ann was a complete joy to work with. She walked us through the process and made sure that everything we needed was done quickly and efficiently in such a hot market. She is extremely responsive; I would send an email and expected a response in a day or two but would receive a reply within hours, if not minutes. At the same time, she is knowledgeable enough to tell me when to relax and let the bank do its job. She recommended an excellent inspector and law office (as well as alternatives) which was particularly helpful for a family unfamiliar with the region. Ann gave us the warmest welcome to the Hudson Valley and worked hard to make our dream house come true.

Comment: We couldn’t have found our new home and sold our last one without Ann McBride-Alayon at Hudson River Line Realty! We are so happy and grateful to Ann for guiding us through the entire complicated process, step by step from beginning to end, in such a professional and reassuring manner. We chose Ann because of her expertise and knowledge of real estate in the local market. When we listed our house, we were so impressed and excited with Ann’s listing - she put into words and images exactly what we loved about the home and pinpointed an excellent asking price. In search of a new home, it never felt like Ann was selling us a house, but helping us make the best decisions for our family. She is an attentive listener, responded to all of our questions, and really knew what our family’s needs were. We especially appreciated her calm and cool demeanor through what is often a very nerve-wracking process. Ann kept the transactions moving along, negotiated for us, and got us to our closing. Sitting in my new beautiful home, writing this review, I recall most of all Ann’s absolute trustworthiness - she always had our best interests in mind. On top of being a true professional, Ann is warm, kind, and genuine - the sweetest person you will ever meet. We readily recommend her to anyone searching for a home or selling a home in our area!

Comment: We love Ann and Hudson River Line Realty, we were originally referred by a close friend and could not have been happier with our experience compared to some other realtors we had met in the past.We met Ann in back in January 2019, we had no idea about the process, time needed or even where in Upstate New York we wanted to be. She wanted to get to know us and let us get a feel for all areas from Beacon, Fishkill, Garrison, Ossining, Cold spring to Peekskill. Weve seen big houses, small houses, remote, community, old and new, but stuck with is the whole way.The thrill is deffinatly finding your place, learning about the areas and Ann knows alot about all the areas she covers which is very hard to find in a realtor. She also will help you understand things you need to consider, and timing.After 9 months Ann helped us find a gorgeous place in Peekskill and we couldnt be happier. Ann was fantastic and Id highly recommend her as finding and then buying a house is a stressful process and she will help you navigate everything.See a variety of properties to get a feel and narrow down your search accordingly, add up every little cost to refine your budget, deposit, closing costs and even light renovations add up quickly.For a winning combination work with local mortgage broker, lawyer and Ann, this allowed us to move quickly and secure our home.

Comment: My wife and I can’t recommend Ann enough! She represented us through the process of selling our house and buying a new one with so much patience, insightful guidance, and transparency. Ann was amazing and had our best interests in mind every step of the way. She’s the best mix of professionalism and thoughtfulness you could hope for!

Comment: We were so glad we found Ann! She knows the area really well. She was very honest about what she thought would work for us and when she thought the pricing was reasonable, or when she saw issues with a house. She really took the time to figure out what we wanted and held our hand as we searched for our first home. Were now homeowners and couldnt be happier!

Comment: My husband and I have been looking for a home in Cold Spring for quite some time. We decided to go with a local broker. Ann and her team made our experience of looking for the perfect home so pleasant and enjoyable! She was professional, warm and knowledgeable. She also connected us to local vendors. Hudson River line realty is a non-pretentious agency that makes you feel local and NOT corporate. Highly recommend!

Comment: Ann helped us both buy and sell homes. As with real estate, nothing seems to go as planned. Ann was not afraid to roll up her sleeves to get the job done. She was spot on when it came to price points, negotiations, and marketing. Her experience and personality was extremely valuable when curveballs were thrown in the last hour. I can honestly say, we would not have survived this experience with out her. You will never find a more honest, hard working real estate agent. We will forever be thankful for her hard work and assistance in helping us sell our home and then buy our forever home exactly where we wanted to be.

Comment: Personal service at the highest level! The thing I appreciated the most about Ann was that she took the time to really understand our needs. When emotions would get the best of us, she would remind us of our core needs and help us re-focus. She kept our best interest in mind throughout the process. I will never use another agent.

Comment: Ann went the extra mile to help us find our dream home in Peekskill NY! As first time home buyers from Brooklyn/Queens area with two young boys (not easy companions when house hunting!), she guided us through the entire process. We’re very grateful for her knowledge and local insight. She also made excellent referrals to lawyers & contractors in the area. We viewed 25+ properties with Ann and her experience was invaluable toward us making the right choice. She really knows the lay of the land in a competitive real estate market that’s on the upswing. Can’t recommend Ann enough! All the way through a protracted, complicated and frustrating closing process, Ann was friendly, knowledgeable and a consummate pro. Thanks again Ann & we’ll see you around the neighborhood :)

Comment: We knew what we were looking for in a house, but had no idea how the process worked. We also felt really allergic to the classic salesperson type and didn’t want to feel like we were being talked into something in order to close a sale. Ann had a laid-back attitude when we were exploring many different options and was very patient with us! She was never afraid to give us candid opinions about the properties we were considering, but really let us come to our own conclusions. When it came time to put in an offer, she shepherded us through the whole process like a true professional. We felt like she was really our advocate during a potentially difficult process.

Comment: Working with Ann on our first home was the best choice we ever made. She knew the area, listened to our needs/wants and became a friend through the process.When we saw a home that wasn’t right instead of pushing us towards it she laid out the problems and let us know we can do better.After a long search when we chose a home she recommended a fantastic inspector who saved us from making buying a home with structural issues. Then Ann comforted us and helped us to rally and restart the search.Ultimately we found an amazing home with her help. She was a great negotiator and helped to manage the very difficult realtor the seller was working with.If we ever need to work with a realtor again it would be my first choice to work with her and I’ll recommend her to anyone who will listen!

Comment: Ann helped us through a complicated short sale to get us into our dream home. Through the whole process her calm energy and expertise guided us and it was clear that she shared our vision and was passionate about helping us reach our goal. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and was always willing to meet us with a smile. Everyone should be so lucky as to have an agent as amazing as Ann to lead them through the world of real estate.

Comment: We would not have found the house of our dreams if it weren’t for Ann’s hard work. She found our place before it even came on the market. Ann knew exactly what we were looking for and didn’t stop until she found it for us!
