What does your company do? Carol Bushberg Real Estate is the newest full service real estate brokerage in Tompkins County.
Where did the idea for your company come from? I have been a local real estate professional for the past 23 years. For 18 of those years, I was proud to be a part of Christopher George Real Estate. Starting my own office is the natural next step for a real estate enthusiast like myself. At Carol Bushberg Real Estate, I will continue to provide my clients with the highest quality of service and advocacy.
What benefits does your company have doing business in Tompkins County? Ithaca has been my new home town since 1979. I am thrilled that my young son is growing up here, and we are all very involved in our community. It is easy to promote and sell a place that you cherish. In light of the economic difficulties that all of us are facing, I am also grateful to have a substantial pool of local lenders and thoughtful mortgage officers, who work hard to assist my clients with their mortgages and financial needs.
What disadvantages does your company have doing business in Tompkins County? How do you overcome them? Is it fair to complain about the weather? I would prefer more sunshine, I bought a car with a sunroof.
What products and services make your business special? At Carol Bushberg Real Estate, I provide “sound advice for big decisions.” I capably handle all types of property, homes, green space and developable land, as well as commercial and rental properties. Selling or buying, my clients feel prepared, informed, and protected by the services I provide.
