My name is Margaret
Bower Avenia and it would be my great pleasure to help you with your Real Estate needs. Whether you are buying or selling or you just need information or advice about investing in Real Estate, or a local perspective on life in the Western Berkshires and the Hudson Valley, I'm here to help you. Having grown up in the business—my grandfather, George H. Beach started his first Real Estate company in 1961—my familiarity with the pristine country environment of Columbia and Berkshire Counties goes back to my childhood. In 2002, I went to work for my grandfather, learning the day to day operations of the Real Estate business. Today, I specialize in providing the full range of services to buyers, sellers, renters and investors. As my grandfather often told me, the key to being successful is integrity, honesty, and hard work. Whatever your Real Estate needs, please feel free to give me a call 518-325-9784.
County New York is ideally situated in the Hudson Valley between
the culturally rich Berkshires and the mighty Catskills. Columbia
County has become one of New York State's most desirable destinations.
If you have visited Columbia County recently or in the past,
you know why it is such a special place and why so many people
call it home.
Looking for a vacation home, second home or primary residence, I would like to help you find the home of your dreams. I work primarily in Columbia County, Dutchess County, the Mid-Hudson Valley and the Capital District Region of NY. I am happy to work with other brokers in my firm or in conjunction with outside associates to show their listings to you.
Some of my Listings, if you don't find what you are looking for here, please e-mail me and I will do a wider search for your needs.

'Margaret is an awesome agent and we'd recommend to anyone, especially to any of my friends in NY looking for a second home. We starting working with Margaret as she was the most proactive broker, sending us listings she thought might appeal to us & following up in a friendly, non-pushy way. She has gone above and beyond what we expected, especially as we are not local, and needed some local support on 'the ground'. This support includes meeting with tradesman to help get appraisals of work needed, viewing places ahead of time to short list, and negotiating on our behalf. I think Margaret has worked incredibly hard, both cheerfully and honestly.' - E. Fowler, New Lebanon, NY
'Margaret surpassed all our expectations from the very first time we contacted her. She was very professional throughout and yet very personable. Throughout the negotiation process, she was right on top of things until an agreed upon purchase price was secured. From that point on, she was in contact with us and walking us through the processes that would ultimatley bring us to our closing. We have now been in our beatitful home for one month, and we love it! We know without a doubt that Margaret's patience, perseverence and guidance was instrumental in making this lovely home ours. Thank you Margaret...we love you!!!' - Craig & Heidi Cooper, Hillsdale, NY
'Margaret, thank you so much for all your efforts showing me property in Columbia County. I appreciate all your time and energy!' - N. Libeso, Boston, MA
