Debra Danner, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Regional & Branch Manager
Catskills Regional Coldwell Banker Prime Properties Manager
I fell in love with the Catskills over fifteen years ago when I discovered my home away from New York City nestled in a pristine and glorious valley. Reminiscent of the lush country side of my childhood in the Caribbean, the Catskills region inspired me to pursue a career helping others find the right home from which to enjoy leisure, recreation and tranquility.
I bring over thirty years of local and international marketing and business development knowledge and expertise to my real estate business. I have owned as well as managed a number of customer focused consumer products marketing and specialty retail companies over the years. Therefore, I am attuned to defining the needs of the client then ensuring that I deliver on my promise. When you list your property with me, you can be assured that I will attend to the details necessary to making your property sufficiently visible to attract buyers.
Specialty foods, fashion and the arts drive my passion. During my career, I have marketed handcraft products, premium leisure apparel, gourmet coffee, as well as ethnic and specialty foods from Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe. Here in the Catskills, I am happily at home with the vibrant arts communities, wholesome foods, artisan crafts and historic villages.
As an avid house and home enthusiast with a lifelong appreciation for exceptional architectural details, landscaping and interior design, I will apply my talent and skills to representing your best interests in acquiring property in the region. Allow me to guide you in finding your home from which to enjoy this region.
I came to the Catskills in 1978 and fell in love with EVERYTHING! The mountains, the streams, the rivers - the restaurants, the arts - I could go on and on. I've spent most of that time exploring new places in and about our five County region and learning how to traverse one mountain and town to another - by car, of course. I'm a City-it, afterall. But I do love it up here. I love either few - or NO - traffic lights. I love the sounds at night with the crickets and the cicadas. I love the morning sounds of the Catskills. I'm re-energized every single day! But don't get me wrong. I also LOVE going to the City, Going to Broadway, Shopping in the City! Madly driving around the City. So there, you have it. I have the head of a City-it living in the country - and I can find you exactly what property you're looking for! That City sensibility. Try me!
I became a Realtor-Associate in 1986 and a Principal Broker in 1999 when I opened Country Roads Real Estate. In 2008 I obtained a dual license so that I could also work with another local broker and then I moved to Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties in 2013 as an Associate Broker and Office Manager - because they are TOP DOG in the Catskill Region.
As a member of the National Association of Realtors, New York State Association of Realtors, the Ulster County Board of Realtors, as well as several Multiple Listing Services, I am most familiar with the trends and opportunities in these Catskill Mountains & Hudson Valley regions, and I look to serve my clients with the utmost of personal attention. Providing the highest standard of individualized service is one of my priorities and a standard that you - as a client and customer- can count on. Choosing a Realtor can be a difficult decision, but I hope that I have made the process of buying or selling a home easier for my clients and I look forward to helping new clients through that process as well. From a week-end getaway to a ski or vacation home in these spectacular Catskills to a great home in Woodstock or a large traditional home in Hurley or Uptown Kingston - I can guide you through the process and take you home! You can contact me by email: email@example.com or call or text my cell phone 845-853-9095. Or call me in the office 845-657-4177 Ext. 301. I look forward to meeting you and working with you!

Jeffrey Ashton is a Licensed Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties and works out of the company's Margaretville, NY Real Estate office.
After my first visit to the Catskills over 16 year ago, I knew this was a special place. I fell in love with the clear Streams, the stunning Vistas, the Fresh Air, the verdant Mountain Foliage and the peaceful, unhurried pace. I came up here one summer and purchased my first home.
After 10 years of being a Weekend Homeowner, I made the switch from "part-timer" to "full-timer." Having traveled to more than 50 countries, I am always happy to come home to Andes, NY and the Scenic Beauty that is the Catskill Mountains.
With more than 20 years' experience in sales and customer relations with a prestigious international airline, I bring to my job a wealth of knowledge in understanding people's needs, desires and motivations for Buying and Selling Real Estate. With an apartment in New York City and a primary residence in Andes, I understand the needs, concerns and issues of both second-home owners and those seeking a primary residence. As a former Andes School Board Member, I am committed to the area and actively involved in the community. In 2016 I was ranked the second top producing agent by sales volume in Delaware County.

I would love to talk to you, so call me, email me, or text me and let's discuss your real estate objectives!
Here are what some of my clients have said about me:
"My wife and I recently purchased a vacation home in the Catskills and Jeff was our realtor. Jeff was a true professional and a pleasure to deal with. He was thorough, knowledgeable and addressed all our concerns. All our phone and e-mail correspondence were met with an immediate or timely response. I would highly recommend contacting Jeff if you are considering buying or selling your home." - Bill F
"Jeffrey is simply the best. We had worked with another "top" agent for a year and a half, and talked to several others, before signing on with Jeffrey, and we couldn't have been happier with the experience. Jeffrey was realistic, thorough, thoughtful, creative, fair, kind, personable, strategic, professional, motivated... I could go on. The whole process was pleasant and seamless. I highly recommend him!" - Donna B
"I cannot recommend Jeffrey Ashton highly enough. He was patient and dedicated and helped me search for months on end until he helped me find the jewel I was looking for. I was driving from Brooklyn to look at property, so it was important to me that Jeffrey pick a few good ones to show each time I drove up. He picked one beautiful property after another, which made looking for a house an enjoyable trip to the mountains and not in any way or for any moment a waste of time. He is completely honest and trustworthy and will tell you what you need to know about the property; there are no secrets nor a sales man type of attitude. One day he called me and told me that he had found the one, and that I needed to come up that day and see it. He was right. This is the very first time I have bought a home/property and Jeffrey was with me every step of the way. He knows everything there is to know about the ins and outs of BOTH sides of buying and selling. He was in fact the listing agent for this property and ultimately represented the sellers, but he set me up with the best agent to represent my interests and for that I am truly grateful. He is the kind of guy I looked forward to seeing each time I went upstate. We still keep in touch and I consider him a part of my extended family! I just adore him and cannot thank him enough for what he helped me do." - Nikki V
"Jeffrey could not have been a better agent. He is super patient, very helpful, deeply knowledgable and really honest about what he thinks - which we found very insightful! We have and would recommend Jeffrey to anyone looking for property or a house. We consider him a friend and counselor and trust his expert opinion completely." - Casey C

“Rather than just 'sell a house', I’m interested in helping people realize their ideal lifestyle in the Catskills. To do that, I listen carefully to understand what is of value to someone searching for the right home that will become such an important part of the lifestyle they desire. My role is to discover what buyers want for their new lifestyle, what they have to offer a seller, then generate action to locate their desired property and achieve a match. It's a matter of trust."
Raised in the Netherlands, Esther has lived in Paris, the Canary Islands, New York City, and traveled extensively. "Two decades in the fashion industry have brought me to different corners of the globe and shaped an aesthetic sensibility that appreciates the beauty of the natural world combined with a mix of styles in fashion, art, décor, and homes. I've learned to understand the unique needs of many different types of people.”, shares Esther. "The complement to my personal approach for working with quality home buyers is that home sellers understand that my individual buyers are qualified and interested. As such, I'm asked by savvy home sellers to represent their listings. I care about a good match, so everyone wins."
After living and working from NYC since 1998, Esther wanted a place to find respite from hectic travel and a fast-paced city life. Esther explains, "One hot city summer when I was eight months pregnant with my daughter, my family and I rented a vacation house and I quickly fell in love with the beauty and peace of the Catskills. Discovering such breathtaking space not far from NYC, yet far from everything that is NYC, has been an amazing experience. I've lived and worked around the world, but for numerous lifestyle reasons I've chosen the Catskills as my ideal home.” Whether you’re looking for a full-time or part-time home, whether you’re interested in land, a Cape, Victorian, 19th century farmhouse, log cabin or a contemporary style home, contact Esther today for an introduction to this magical area.
“I look forward to introducing you to Catskill living and helping you create your own unique Catskill style!" #catskillstylehome

My first visit to Delaware County was over 25 years ago...and it was love at first sight! Working as a top marketing executive in New York, I found the beauty and seclusion of this area a welcome relief to my hectic and demanding schedule of Manhattan, and immediately set up "roots" in the lovely and quaint hamlet of Bovina.
After 25 years of traveling back and forth, I decided to switch my full-time residency to my Home here in the Catskills. In 2000, I acquired my NY State Real Estate License and have since achieved measurable success by effectively combining my "corporate" talents: outstanding SERVICE, detailed FOLLOW-THRU and a high level of COMMITMENT.
But...let's move on from my qualifications to why you are looking at an Upstate New York Real Estate website! Believe me, I get it...in fact, I live it! You want to wake up in the morning and hear the birds chirping (not a taxi honking)...sip your morning coffee on your porch or deck (not wait on line at Starbucks)...look out to our magnificent Catskill Mountains (not up to skyscrapers)...and discover the startling pristine landscape that our area has (thanks to the NYC Watershed).
You will find this area a much-needed place to flex your stress-weary bones. Play Tennis, a round of Golf, hit the Ski Slopes at Plattekill and Belleayre Mountains, go Horseback Riding, try Fishing, buy a Snowmobile or ATV...hey, just breathe some fresh air! And enjoy all the amazing activities that we have here in the Catskills: Farm Markets, new Trendy Restaurants, Galleries, Theater, and Summer Concerts.
So...please contact me. It would give me great pleasure to introduce you to our hidden jewel the Catskills!

See what some of my sellers and buyers have to say about me
“We just sold the MOST EXPENSIVE HOUSE IN DELAWARE COUNTY and it would not have been possible without Carol’s brilliant work. She - I won’t list the superlatives - just fill in 5 stars for everything - is a genius. Nothing more to be said"
"We couldn't be happier! Our experience with Carol was incredible! In record time Carol created a beautiful photo profile which showcased and highlighted the bet of what our house offered. After working with two other agents and having our home site for 2 years, Carol sold our house after just a few months. Thank you for making our experience easy..!! Carol, we feel free!"
" We listed our house with Carol Spinelli, just as the market was softening. Fortunately, for us, Carol did a few things that led to it being sold quickly. Today, both we and the buyers are pleased with the deal and have, in fact, become friends. This doesn't always happen with a real estate transaction!"
"When we were looking for our home in the Catskills, we found Carol Spinelli. She is passionate about the community and her enthusiasm is infectious. When we found the house, we closed in a record 3 weeks. Carol moved at our pace and made it happen!"
"We want to highly recommend Carol Spinelli for the selling of our Roxbury home. From her first communication to the closing, we were elated how every detail was handled. Carol constantly stayed in touch via emails and the transaction was as seamless. Owning our house for 26 years was filled with happiness. Because of Carol, the selling of our home did not tarnish our memories!"
"We had been searching for a second home when we connected with Carol. She spent a lot of time, before we met, to have a clear picture of our needs. Her thoroughness was quite refreshing! After our purchase, Carol continued to be a tremendous community resource. We were lucky to have Carol as our agent and would recommend her, in fact, we already have several times!"

I first came to the Catskill Area to visit a friend who had just bought her Weekend Getaway and I immediately felt as if I were home. Within two months I found my own piece of Beauty in the Mountains. That magical time occurred back in 1992
It was an easy transition for me to make the change from a career of over 18 years working as the creative director, for a leading company in the home furnishings industry. It was a Natural transition to utilize my knowledge of architecture, interior design and marketing to Selling Upstate NY Real Estate.
I have been recognized as a Top Producer by the Otsego/Delaware County Board of Realtors and for being Number One in service within Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties. I will use my skills and knowledge of the Catskill Region to address all of your Real Estate Buying and Selling needs.
WHO I AM... I think when you’re home, you know it. And for me, finding home meant settling in the Catskills in 2006. Before this, I have lived quite happily in other places—Park Slope Brooklyn where my husband and I raised our daughter, as well as in Manhattan, Queens, Westchester, and my country of birth, Romania. But it was my experiences as a weekender in the Central Catskills that made me realize that this was where I belonged. So, stepbystep, we began to convert our rustic one bedroom 1950's cabin into the “Mountain Modern” house of glass and wood it is today. It was a huge undertaking. My husband, a visual artist who grew up in Ulster County, along with our architect, conceived the project. Backed into the wooded shoulders of the mountainside, it has been our refuge ever since- not just because we love the house, but because it’s nestled in a landscape that truly speaks to us both.
HOW I WORK... Let’s face it: It’s almost impossible to sound sincere when it comes to the topic of real estate! But the truth is, I absolutely love my job. There are two main reasons for this:
I have a straightforward, Old World business ethic. You can expect me to provide:
So, please reach out any time.
I’m always ready to help.
“Marta was a big help during the entire process of finding, looking, and buying a home. She knows the area very well, so her advice was always greatly appreciated not just in regards to the places we visited, but all the related issues with the buying processes in those specific areas. Her attention to every detail was impressive and our questions were addressed in a rapid manner. Marta was a great help during the closing, but she also helped gave us tips about the services, activities, and residents in town, so we had a headstart on life in our new home. Even now, after nearly a year, Marta is the person we call with questions as we settle in. I would absolutely recommend her to any person interested in selling or buying a place. She is a wonderful person, as well as a real estate agent.“ Josefina R, February 2016 Home Buyer
“Marta guided us through all aspects of the sale of our vacation property from the listing stage to final closing. She was always in communication with us and with the buyers to facilitate the deal, and helped resolve some very thorny issues that emerged during the sale. She is knowledgeable, determined, and always positive. We’re so glad she was our seller’s agent” Robert A, January 2016, Home Seller
“I admit I am a very picky buyer. I am very detail oriented, and I tend to ask A LOT of questions! Plus, I’m not very decisive. I’m always waiting for that “perfect” property. Marta does not blink an eye. She just keeps looking for my perfect place with me. She is also a straight shooter. She doesn’t hide the facts, good or bad. And she is a great teacher. She has shown me to look at land differently than I did when I first began to work with her, and this has helped me in very important ways" Beth L., March 2016, Land Buyer

Fleur's love affair with Sullivan County began back in the mid '90’s while spending a weekend at a friend’s home. The parting words were: if you ever want to sell this place, please let me know……. Well 2 years later it happened, and she became a second home owner and a committed weekender. After spending almost half her life as a trader on Wall St., she decided to become a full-time resident, and changed her career to real estate.
Fleur understands that buying or selling a home is a major event in people’s lives, and she's dedicated to helping her clients achieve their goals and have a positive experience throughout the real estate transaction. Her focus on strong communication and personal contact, market updates and staying on top of the transaction process paves the way for the best possible experience for all parties involved.

I first visited the Schoharie / Delaware County, NY areas of the Catskills more than 20 years ago when my brother relocated to the area. I grew to love the landscape and the setting of the Upstate NY Catskills Region.
After several visits I made the decision to Relocate my family from Long Island to pursue a dream for a better quality of life. That was over 16 years ago and the Catskills became Home to my children and me. We continue to enjoy the Serenity and Beauty, as well as the lifestyle the Community offers.
To live in the Catskill Mountains is to know a Tranquil way of life, away from the hustle-and-bustle of living in an urban or even suburban community. The Real Estate business eventually became my career choice.
I have been told my strengths as a Real Estate Agent are my integrity and honesty, as well as putting people at ease. I enjoy meeting new people and the excitement of helping them find the Property that suits their needs. It is satisfying to be able to match people to the property they desire, and I will go the extra mile or two to accommodate anyone — whether they are Buying or Selling.
I have more than 15 years of experience in Upstate Residential, Commercial and Land sales.

My husband, Bob, and I moved to the Stamford, NY area more than 43 years ago. We both grew up in Nassau County on the North Shore of Long Island. Even by the mid-70s, we found life on Long Island too hectic.
We had visited friends in the Upstate NY Area and were instantly "sold" by the Serenity and Beauty of the area. The value and quality of the Home we were able to purchase added to the Region's appeal. We feel privileged to have raised our two sons in such a Pristine, Rural Community.
I still believe this quality of life and value holds true today, in an area just a few hours from Manhattan.
My husband Bob who has had his real estate sales license for 11 years has recently retired from the State University at Oneonta and has eagerly pursued a second career in real estate. Give us a call anytime, we will be happy to discuss your real estate needs.

I'm a native of Brooklyn, NY and my first experience with the Catskill Mountains was over 35 years ago on a Camping trip. The lure of the Mountains brought me back on weekends for 20 years. In 1988, I purchased six Acres of Land in Roxbury, NY and soon after built a Log Home on the Property. For seven years, I was a part-time Second Home resident and I moved to Upstate NY full time in 1995.
I believe the benefits of living in the Catskill Mountains are simple: Peace and Quiet, the Wildlife, being able to Ski, Hunt and Fish in the Mountains, the Fresh Air and the best Water in the world!
