Comment: I worked with Claire Browne while finding my first house for myself and my two boys. The experience was seamless; which when it comes to buying a house -from what I’ve heard - almost never happens. I can’t give a higher recommendation of this office or of Claire. I was coming from Chicago to see houses and basically had two weeks to find one before I would have to go home and wait longer. Prior to coming to NY to see houses in person, Claire kept in contact and sent me houses to look at regularly. She was responsive, reliable, and an excellent communicator. She got to know myself and my family and we successfully purchased the perfect house. I received honest and straightforward advice from Claire though out the viewing/buying experience. I enjoyed my time in her care both professionally and personally; she’s an easy person to be with and is incredibly interpersonally intelligent. I really felt like she was in my corner (and on call basically all the time) throughout. Only the highest recommendation.

Comment: We were lucky enough to have Claire recommended to us by our son and daughter in law, who had been thrilled with her help in finding them their first house. To say that we were happy with this decision would be an understatement. Her expertise and professionalism were spot on, and we would highly recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell their house.

Comment: If youre looking to buy in Dutchess County, stop right now and call Claire Brown. Im serious, get off Google and call her.Being first time homebuyers in this market meant that my husband and I were perpetually terrified of being taken advantage of, and absolutely sure wed be searching for a home forever. We had interviewed a few realtors prior to finding The Gate House Team and were told similar things: theres no way youll get what youre looking for without paying double your budget, you have to be ready to be as cutthroat as possible, and even then you probably will have to settle--big time.Claire was recommended to us by my husbands colleague, and from the moment we spoke she put me at ease like no one else had before in this entire process. She didnt beat our dreams down and give me an unnecessarily brutal come-to-Jesus talk. She asked me if I knew how strange the market was right now, and when I said yes, she simply replied Alright. Well find you something--might take some time, but well find you something.Claire did several showings with us, some that werent even listed anywhere but on Zillow, and advocated for us like we were the only clients she had through the entire process. When we found a home we loved at a price that worked, she went ABOVE AND BEYOND to facilitate the purchase, even communicating between us and the sellers to set up a meet to ask them questions about the house and neighborhood. Every single recommendation Claire gave us was spot on, and her estimates and instincts about issues were never wrong. She was professional in every single way and from the moment we met it felt like we knew her forever. When my father passed suddenly in the middle of the buying process, Claire even went out of her way to handle things locally on our behalf to make sure we didnt have to make the 1.5 hour drive up if it wasnt absolutely necessary. On top of all of this, she would even have us laughing and joking together by the end of every meeting.Because of Claire and Claire alone, my husband and I are homeowners today--barely 4 months after properly starting our search.Not all realtors are knowledgable about every aspect of the home buying process. Few realtors you meet will have your best interest at heart. We wanted to work with someone who would do more than just send us lists of MLS numbers and open houses, someone who would advocate for us every single step of the way and not let us forget a single thing in the process. That was Claire and then some--at no point did she force us into anything that wasnt right for us, and at no point did we feel she was just in it for the sale. Claire truly gives a damn and its clear from the get go. They simply dont make the cloth shes cut from anymore.And if youre still reading, let this be your second reminder to GO HIRE CLAIRE!

Comment: We just bought our first home and we could not imagine having gone through the process without Claire Browne from Gate House Team at Compass. From our very first contact to our closing day Claire provided us with unconditional support, guidance and expert knowledge! Claire is reachable, relatable and really listened to our needs and wants when it came to what we were looking for. She was truly our right hand as we navigated what is naturally a stressful time to which she added ease and comfort throughout the entire process. She worked tirelessly behind the scenes to advocate for us and we cannot thank her enough for helping us find our dream home! We confidently recommend Claire and Gate House to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Comment: Claire Brown was my realtor and helped me in navigating the purchase of my first home in a really tough market. There were some really tough moments (problems with one seller and problems with one of my inspectors,m), and Claire was a real advocate for me, and also extremely compassionate in helping me through a very emotional process. She is a no-nonsense person and will give you her honest and very expert opinion, but she also had a great eye for what I wanted in a house. This combination meant I got a house I love, but avoided lots of places with pitfalls I would never have noticed on my own! She gave me great advice on every step of the process. I absolutely love my new home, and loved working with Claire from beginning to end.

Comment: When it was time to sell my Beacon home, I chose Charlotte who I have known as a premier local realtor since meeting her shortly after I bought my house in 1999.Charlotte’s professionalism, market knowledge and expertise gave me the confidence that both the price she suggested and the timing of the listing were both spot on. My home listing went active on a Friday and I accepted a great offer two days later above asking.This is the first house I have sold and Charlotte made the experience seamless, she guided me through the process and was always responsive when I reached out to her. I would highly recommend Charlotte and her Compass team.

Comment: We just purchased our first home in Beacon, NY and we couldnt have done it w/o Stephanie Dignan. Were from NYC and the idea of owning a home in Beacon was a distant and overwhelming goal. My anxiety lives at a steady 10, so going into this process I needed a unicorn: someone that was going to be part therapist, part expert real estate professional --a jack of all trades. I found all of that in Stephanie. This market was incredibly difficult to navigate. I needed a lot of handholding, constant updates and reassurance. Stephanie worked her magic and in a little over a month we had an accepted offer on our first home in arguably one of the toughest markets. Her recommendations for local activities and restaurants rounded out the experience. All the questions I had were answered in record time. Offers were submitted lightning fast. Once the offer was accepted, she worked quickly so that the process would be completed smoothly and on time. We felt completely taken care of and confident that Stephanie would get us through this process unscathed. Shes funny, caring, knowledgeable - just the absolute best. I (not so) secretly hope she stays on as my friend.

Comment: We recently purchased a home in Beacon with the help of Kundi Glasson, and we couldnt have asked for a better realtor!As first time homebuyers, Kundi patiently walked us through everything there is to know about buying a home, and was always available to answer questions. She developed a quick understanding of what we were looking for, and directed us towards properties that suited us well. She advocated for us in a very tight housing market, and provided excellent guidance for how to stay competitive. Once we were able to get an offer accepted, she did everything she could to expedite the process, and we ended up closing in record time!Were thrilled with our experience and would recommend Kundi in a heartbeat!

Comment: We had the best experience selling our house with Claire Browne. She was sensitive to our needs and timeline, perfectly in tune with the market and community, and remarkably efficient in helping us over the finish line. Claire made a stressful and intimidating process feel totally manageable, and wed recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.

Comment: As first time home buyers, Kundi Glasson was very helpful to my wife and I in finding and buying a house in only a few months, in a tough market. Being new to Beacon, she made us feel welcome, showed us around town and she definitely had her finger on the pulse of the market here. We’re grateful for Kundi’s service and recommend her.

Comment: We worked with Kundi Glasson for the purchase of our new home and the sale of our previous homes, and she made what could have been an otherwise unpleasant experience into one of the great joys of our lives.Through every single speed bump and road block in this crazy 2021 market, Kundi was right there by our side with knowledge and support. I dont recommend entering into 4 property transactions at once during a pandemic, but if youre going to do it, do it with these people. Real estate is a fickle business but Kundi and the rest of Gate House are not. They will get the job done.We are so happy with where we are now and would definitely recommend Gate House Realty to anyone!

Comment: My partner and I purchased our home February of this year. The experience we had with Claire was amazing. She guided and supported us through every step of the process. Without her presence and action, the sale may not have gone through. I would recommend our Realtor, Claire Browne and Gate House to anybody.

Comment: My husband and I worked with Claire Brown and her husband Greg and we couldnt have been luckier to have them both guide us through our home buying journey as well as finding a business location in Beacon, NY. Claire and Greg are truly experts. They take the time to get to know your personal interests, likes and dislikes. They dont just try to sell you any property. Theyre invested in helping you find the property that best suits you for your needs. We also found them to be very knowledgeable and at times it felt like we gained friends and advisors who wanted the best for us. Claire and Greg-- thank you for your patience and expertise. You are exactly what every homebuyer needs!

Comment: My first recommendation is to do your due diligence in researching your area realtors. However, my most important recommendation is to be sure to put Claire Browne (The Gate House Team-Compass Real Estate) at the top of your list of realtors to research. After phone interviews and in-person interviews with several realtors in Dutchess County, NY, so much clarity and confidence was found in selecting Claire to help me with the sale of my home.One of the things that made her stand out was the balance of her extensive knowledge/experience in the market and her ability to listen to my input and customize the process to make my home the most marketable-and me the most comfortable.Another of her strong qualities that made her stand out in my research was her ability to prioritize and commit herself to each of her properties. With an extremely hot market for sellers, she never missed a beat in communication with me and being personally involved with each showing and inquisition on my home. She did an outstanding job of keeping me abreast of every potential buyer and quickly responded to every one of my questions. I’ve never seen such a hardworking and dedicated realtor!Understanding my goals, Claire put the deal on her back and made my experience extremely comfortable, understandable and, in the end, profitable. She was a pleasure to work with and an extremely professional and productive realtor.

Comment: Claire Browne helped us sell our first house and we couldn’t have asked for a better broker. Claire is honest, straight forward, knowledgeable, responsive and supportive. Selling our first home was a difficult decision and I was anxious and emotional about it. Claire was there for us every step of the way and was always available to address any questions or concerns we had. She gave us honest advice about what we needed to do to make our home more marketable and appealing. She helped us find the right buyers for our house and secured us a great price. Claire is currently helping us buy our forever home and her advice helped us outbid several other buyers in a hot market. Claire has worked hard for us and we are grateful that we found her.

She was a great source of local information and advice, easy to talk to and always available to answer our questions. We could not have asked for a better experience with her and the team at Compass. Many thanks!

Comment: I worked with Karen DeCandia to find my first home, and I couldnt be happier. She was incredibly responsive and meticulous. Karen is why I was able to stay positive and overcome the obstacles I faced while buying a home during the abnormally competitive housing marketplace and global pandemic. As a first-time purchaser using the VA Home Loan, theres no other realtor I would recommend. Thank you, Karen!

Comment: We just bought our first home, and we couldnt have done it without Stephanie Dignan - she is a fantastic advocate and support; she kept us informed and guided us through an otherwise (not because of Stephanie!) crazy process. Even when the sellers agent was difficult and at times disrespectful, Stephanie remained professional and committed to us and getting us to the finish line. Cannot recommend enough working with Stephanie and Gate House - they are truly wonderful!

Comment: We just closed on our first home in Beacon, all thanks to Stephanie Dignan of Gatehouse Realty. Stephanie is a true professional – knowledgeable, optimistic, patient and extremely hardworking for her clients.We knew it wouldn’t be easy to find a house in our price range given the extremely competitive state of the Beacon real estate market, but Stephanie made it happen for us. Because of her, our below market offer was accepted and the remainder of our home buying experience was painless and seamless. We can’t recommend Stephanie enough and hope to work with her again in the future.

Comment: Gate House Realty has been great to work with! My realtor was Stephanie and she was the best realtor I have ever worked with. She helped me get my dream apartment by being super quick and responsive. She went above and beyond to answer all of my questions and respond to my concerns. I had everything approved and signed within 24 hours of seeing my apartment! She even saved me a parking spot when I came to look at the apartment! She made a process that is generally time consuming/ grueling into something that was quick/easy and assuring! I am so happy in my new Beacon apartment and I thank Stephanie and Gate house for that!

Comment: I highly recommend Charlotte Guernsey and the entire team at Gate House. As a seasoned real estate agent in California, I know the benefits of working with a strong local agent. So when my husband and I were looking to buy a building in Beacon, Charlotte was the natural choice. She is a person of incredible integrity, understands the local market including historic knowledge and has abundant resources for renovations to maximize value. We bought our first building five years ago, and Charlotte and her team have leased out any apartment with efficiency and thoughtfulness. We were thrilled to work with Charlotte again this past month in purchasing another building --- and, of course, weve hired her to lease out vacant units as well. I recommend Gate House without reservation!

Comment: We couldn’t be happier in our new home! It was quite a journey to get here, but we have to thank Karen Decandia for her patience and tenacity through our long process. She helped us when we were on the fence about renting vs. buying and she showed us so many places! We finally found our dream home and she helped make the process smooth for us newbies - she patiently explained all the steps form point A to point B so we knew what to expect. (Not to mention that she also even helped babysit/entertain our 2 year old son while we were doing our inspections and final walk through). We couldn’t have done this without Karen and Gate House!
