ABOUT ME

Do you believe in coincidences? Because I think you landed here for a reason, and I’m so excited to have you! My name is Penelope Crosby, and I serve New York’s Capital District real estate market. I have the pleasure of helping people sell their homes and close on the home of their dreams. I have 3 amazing children that get to call beautiful Rensselaer County home and we share our home with a super sweet rescue dog, the fluffiest cat ever, and a guinea pig named Moe. You can certainly say we’ve got a full house!

I have my Master’s Degree in Education from the College of Saint Rose and work for many years in educational publishing. I never knew much about the real estate industry, but I knew it was something I wanted to be part of at some point in my career. So three kids in, I needed a career change. With the support of my fantastic husband I dove in to real estate. I can sit here and tell you I have strong negotiating skills, local market knowledge, and so forth – and of course, I do – but one thing I want to share with you, the thing that is the most important tool I can provide you in your home sale or purchase is my passion. I didn’t get into the industry to make money. I got into the industry because I fell in love with it. I fell in love with homes, the character each one had, and the beautiful people I got to help transition from one to another. I fell in love with hearing people’s stories, really getting to know their needs for their futures, and focusing on ensuring you found a home that actually met those future goals.

Real estate can be a stressful thing, moving out of a home you’ve known for years can be hard, and it can be harder if you don’t have someone to partner with who doesn’t take the time to understand that. My business goes beyond the professionalism I can bring to the table, my years of knowledge about our local market and communities, and the number of sales I’ve made thus far. Instead, it prioritizes you. How much can you afford? What motivates your move? What do you HAVE to have to make this big transition in your life? You need a real estate agent who understands that, and seeks to know the answer to those questions, and all of the other important ones that make buying and selling a reality for you.

Let’s grab coffee or lunch, on me, and we’ll talk about your real estate goals. I’ll get to know your needs, I’ll share the amazing experience I can provide, and we’ll make sure your next move is in the right direction. You don’t need a computer to find your dream house, you need a professional partner who has your best interest at heart from the moment you call to even after we close. I’m doing more than just selling houses in New York’s Capital District, I’m helping you bring your dream home to life.
