Harvey Brown, Principal Broker
Committed to Providing the Best Experience in Real Estate!
Johanna and Mike
The best aspect of our entire purchase was to have Harvey Brown with us every step of the way. He was a tireless advocate throughout the process, providing us with careful guidance and spot on advice. From the very beginning, Harvey understood our needs and desires, and explained all of the necessary intricacies of a home purchase. He was able to put us in touch with other professionals that were also perfect choices, including our attorney and home inspector. Harvey is "hands on" at all times. He made sure that we were able to consult him every single time we had a question or concern. I only wish that I needed to buy more houses, as I would love to work with him again. On top of all of these things, he made us feel entirely comfortable moving our 3 children from New York City to the relatively rural Hudson Valley. The needs of our children in our new home were always at the forefront of his consul. We could not be happier in our new home, and we moved in having made a wonderful friend in the process."
"I just checked my records, and I made first contact with you on 7/10. We closed exactly on 9/10. What a wild two months it has been. Last night's closing was very stressful and rushed, but the important thing is now we officially have a place to call home. This is all in thanks to your immense patience with us as first time home buyers, and your kindness and generosity with your time and guidance. Words cannot express how deeply grateful we are to the both of you.
I have been frantically calling a whole list of service providers this morning, and tomorrow the fun begins with the arrival of our cars and household goods, a total of 425 boxes at that!
I will be in touch with you again in a week or two. We would love for the opportunity to take the both of you out for dinner and catch up. "

“Harvey Brown did a superb job in helping us find our new home. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, very savvy about the market, and a pleasure to work with. Most importantly, he listened carefully to our housing needs and preferences. As a buyer's broker, he represented our interests well when considering a number of homes before successfully negotiating the purchase of our current home. We couldn't recommend a broker more highly.”

“I have been working with Harvey for 2.5 years to find a weekend house in Rhinebeck. That says everything about how long a view Harvey takes with his relationships. I chose Harvey very simply. I googled Rhinebeck real estate agents and Harvey was the one agent that ONLY represents buyers. Zero conflict. I have received responsiveness, thinking outside the box, high integrity and no pressure. His only concern, his only goal is to find my family the right house. He stays within the parameters we've set, and has never suggested we "consider raising our budget". I find Harvey refreshing in a business where other agents are just trying to book commissions - Harvey is an agent simply because he loves real estate and the area he lives in. Having now met most of the other local agents who represent the seller properties we've seen, I know Harvey is the only agent I would every work with.”

“If you are looking for a real estate agent that truly has your best interest in mind, then Harvey is for you. Harvey helped us to zero in on both the community and home that was right for our family, and we couldn't be happier with our experience with Harvey and our new home.”
“Harvey was extremely helpful and professional from the time I picked up the phone to inquire about his local market. Although he knew I was looking at multiple locations to move my home and business, it didn't stop him from taking whatever time was necessary to explore options in his backyard - rental or purchase. He was even helpful in offering me alternative realtors in different markets to assist in my pursuit of a new place to live. It was never about him, and always about me! I respect and recommend Harvey to anyone!”

“Harvey is our idea of a perfect real estate agent. As a resident of Dutchess county, he is extremely familiar with the area and provides details necessary to make a good decision on purchasing a home. He follows up promptly on any questions we have asked and makes valuable suggestions when he feels it helpful to do so. We feel very comfortable in trusting our needs to harvey and feel confident in his ability in helping us purchase the right property.”

“Excellent all around. Found us our perfect home and was patient, insightful and thorough. Was able to quickly assess our needs and preferences. Overall, a great experience.”

"Summary of their experience
Harvey is an absolutely wonderful agent, and a perfect guide for those new to the Hudson Valley / Rhinebeck area. Knowing that we potentially were not looking to purchase for over a year or more, Harvey nonetheless patiently took us through enough properties to understand the local market and give us a taste of what properties would fit in with our budget and profile of likes and dislikes. When we found a property we liked Harvey represented us skillfully and honestly, and we went to closing on very favorable terms. All dealings with Harvey convey a laid-back, friendly vibe - one is never rushed or pressured when working with him, and this collegial attitude carries over into his excellent relationship with other agents and tradespeople integral to the homebuying and homeowning process. Even after the sale Harvey remains an indispensable source of local lore, wisdom, and practical information which we call on from time to time as new questions emerge. He even set up a play date for our then-7 year old daughter, which led to a friendship that stays strong over a year later. Harvey is truly full-service, and you could not ask for a better realtor!"
