Dutchess County Realtors Rebuild Together

Starr Place was the setting on Thursday evening of a benefit pour for the Dutchess County branch of Rebuilding Together, a national organization that lends a hand (and more) to those who cannot properly maintain their homes.  This year in Dutchess alone, over 100 sponsors and contributors and more than 500 volunteers will rehabilitate twenty-six houses (market value of their cumulative contribution, a cool $300,000).  At Thursday’s gathering, real estate brokers and agents paid for the privilege of schmoozing with their competition.  As the evening’s organizer Julia Crowley of Paula Redmond in Pine Plains explained, “If you’re going to do deals together, it’s helps if you already know each other.”
