How to Pack Like a Pro Plan ahead.
Develop a master to-do list so you won’t forget something critical heading into moving day. This will also help you create an estimate of moving time and costs.

Discard items you no longer want or need.
Ask yourself how frequently you use an item and how you’d feel if you no longer had it. Sort unwanted items into “garage sale,” “donate,” and “recycle” piles.

Pack similar items together.
It will make your life easier when it's time to unpack.

Decide what you want to move on your own.
Precious items such as family photos, valuable breakables, or must-haves during the move should probably stay with you. Pack a moving day bag with a small first-aid kit, snacks, and other items you may need before unpacking your “Open First” box.

Know what your movers will take.
Many movers won’t take plants or liquids. Check with them about other items so you can plan to pack them yourself.

Put heavy items in small boxes.
Try to keep the weight of each box under 50 pounds.

Don’t overpack boxes.
It increases the likelihood that items inside the box will break.

Wrap fragile items separately.
Pad bottoms and sides of boxes and, if necessary, purchase bubble-wrap or other packing materials from moving stores. Secure plants in boxes with air holes.

Label every box on all sides.
You never know how they’ll be stacked. Also, use color-coded labels to indicate which room each box should go in, coordinating with a color-coded floor plan for the movers.

Keep moving documents together in a file, either in your moving day bag or online.
Include vital contact information, the driver’s name, the van’s license plate, and the company’s number.

Print out a map and directions for movers and helpers.
Make several copies, and highlight the route. Include your cell phone number on the map.

Back up computer files on the cloud.
Alternatively, you can keep a physical backup on an external hard drive offsite.

Inspect each box and piece of furniture as soon as it arrives.
Ahead of time, ensure your moving company has a relatively painless process for reporting damages.

During the 23 years that I have been partnering with clients in this industry there have been many changes, but by far the biggest change is the relationship that a buyer or seller has with an agent.
Today, a buyer or seller has immediate access to "What's New" but still needs an agent that knows the pulse of the market every day. Although the old saying that its location, location and location is still true, its also about timing. I'm the agent that knows the pulse of the market every day - please feel free to call or text me on 518.366.9395 anytime from 5:30 am to 8 pm. I'm here for you.

"I never lose sight of what's important to my clients. Whether you are buying or selling a home, I have the market knowledge, business savvy, dedication, and care it takes to help you make the most of your real estate experience. I am committed to providing world class service every step of the way."

My philosophy is “When a client is involved in a business transaction which will significantly impact his or her well-being, it is imperative to retain a competent, full-time, dedicated professional. I am committed to my profession and committed to my clients.

After all, real estate is about people – not just properties.”

I have lived, worked and volunteered in this community for the past 30+ years. I currently live on a 68 acre mini-farm in West Glenville with my husband Ivan. We have 4 children and 5 Grandchildren. Ivan works at the Bechtel facility in West Milton. After retiring from the Navy as a sub-mariner for 20 years, He works at the base where he trained as well as trained sailors for the Nuclear Power Navy.

For personal enjoyment I like gardening, sewing, quilting, hand work such as knitting and crocheting, horse back riding, teaching sunday school, and of course nascar. (My Dad, Pete Corey, was a local hero "back in the day" at Fonda speedway; and if I'm being really truthful I like politics - My sister is Senator Kathy Marchione.. We certainly don't agree all the time, but it keeps the family conversations lively. My Mom who will be 87 this year lives in Clifton Park and I have a brother in North Carolina.

And with all of that...

I love my job, and I think it shows in the quality of service that I offer to my clients.
Feel free to call/text me anytime 518.366.9395. My door is always open early from 5am to 8 pm.

Enjoy the day.

I was surprised to see someone of Dott's age (no disrespect) so well versed in modern technology (smart phone). It really helped with quick  contact, etc. Also, I went through 3 other agents before Dott, but she was the one who got the deal done at the end.

Dott Skomp: "Thank you for the excellent job you did selling our home in Rotterdam. Every aspect was absolutely first-rate and very professional. Your exceptional performance, along with your talent for creative advertising, marketing and financing did not surprise us in the least. We expected it based on your track record. However, we really did not anticipate such close personal attention. We had the feeling we were the only clients you were working for."
