Joan Roberts became a realtor-associate in 1986 and a principal broker in 1999 when she opened her own brokerage. In 2008, Joan obtained a dual license so that she could also work with a larger office and is now with Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties as an Associate Broker.

Tracey Gardner is a lifelong resident of the beautiful Catskill Mountains and has nearly two decades of experience in the real estate profession, beginning her real estate career in Delaware County.
“Assisting people in selling and buying real estate is an exciting process and it allows me to use my creativity, extensive knowledge of the area, and desire to help people achieve their dreams on a daily basis,” she explained. “I like to build strong relationships with clients by listening carefully to their needs and I feel this is the cornerstone of my success.”

John Tufillaro first came to the Catskill Region to visit a friend who had just bought her weekend getaway and recalls immediately feeling as if he were home. Within two months he had found his own piece of beauty in the mountains. That magical time occurred more than 15 years ago.
“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,” John explained.
