Family-Owned Real Estate Agency’s Knowledge, Experience A Home Run For Local Sellers 

FONDA – For the better part of five decades, one independent family-owned company has been working together to list and sell some of the finest properties in Montgomery County and beyond. Since 1977, Judith-Ann Realty, Inc., has been in business locally, with its three generations of personalized real estate services provided to residents in the areas of Montgomery, Fulton and Hamilton counties.

Specializing in all types of properties from single- and two-family homes to farms, lakefront property/camps, rural farmland, new construction, subdivisions and most recently, the new development in the Town of Florida, Mohawk Hills, choosing Judith-Ann Realty, Inc., is a home run for local buyers and sellers.

To recognize its hard-working real estate brokers, Judith-Ann Realty, Inc., has been named Montgomery County’s February Small Business of the Month by County Executive Matthew L. Ossenfort and the Montgomery County Business Development Center.

“There’s no more important purchase in your life than buying a house. Led by Judith Phetteplace, the team at Judith-Ann Realty provides the knowledge of the local market and their brokers have the experience necessary to provide clients with top-notch customer service during this significant purchase,” County Executive Ossenfort said. “Judy, Brent and the rest of the team also do so much in the community from volunteering with community organizations and serving on various boards, in an effort to give back to the area where they work and live.”

Located in Tribes Hill, the brokers at Judith Ann Realty have marketed several new home developments in the region from Erwin Voss construction, George Salveson, Carl Schmaeh, Advantage Builders, CW Custom Builders, Manchester Homes and the most recent Mohawk Hills, in the Town of Florida, new homes being built by Hodorowski Builders, out of Rotterdam. Located in the Town of Florida, Mohawk Hills is an 83-lot subdivision just off Route 5S, with excellent views, estate sized lots, desirable paved town roads and municipal services.

A third-generation family business, Judy Phetteplace currently co-owns the company with her son, Brent Phetteplace, and daughter, Joelle Bluvas. They truly are a family company looking to find families their forever home.

“Since 1977, the staff at Judith Ann Realty has enjoyed assisting so many families with their housing needs,” said Owner Judith A. Phetteplace. “We look forward to so many more good years of listing and selling homes in Montgomery County.”

Buying a house is extremely exciting opportunity, but can be stressful, and during a pandemic even more challenges can arise. On top of following all of the safety protocols, Judith-Ann Reality, Inc., is a member of the New York State Multiple Listing Service, which allows all of their listings to be branched out to various different platforms and websites, giving more attention to each property on the market.

“Judith-Ann Realty has a track record that speaks for itself. They have been listing and selling homes in this area for a long time and they have all the knowledge a seller needs to get top dollar for their property or a buyer needs to find the right house to become a home,” said Montgomery County Business Development CEO Ken Rose.
