Hi, I’m Lindsay Hart, Real Estate Associate Broker at RE/MAX In Motion in Ithaca and team leader of the Hart and Homes Real Estate Team.

I have been affiliated with RE/MAX since I began in real estate  12 years ago. I am a Seller’s Representative Specialist, a Certified Buyer’s Representative & Resort and Second Home Property Specialist.

I have a penchant for properties in Trumansburg, where I live with my husband and sons, but I have listed and sold properties all over Ithaca and Tompkins, Cayuga, Tioga, Chemung, Seneca, and Schuyler Counties.

With over a decade of experience & knowledge of the local real estate market and the industry, I can diplomatically and skillfully negotiate and advocate for you and guide you through all aspects of the process and paperwork.; working together to make your home ownership dreams or home sale goals come true. See what my past clients have to say at http://www.zillow.com/profile/LindsayHartRealtor.

I am a 2002 graduate of Ithaca College’s Park School of Communications, I have served as 2011-2013 local director, the 2014 Secretary/Treasurer, the 2015 President-Elect, the 2016 President and the 2017 & 2018 Past- President of the Ithaca Board of REALTORS. I was also NY State Association of REALTORS Southern Tier Region’s RPAC trustee and volunteered on numerous  local and state association committees.  I was involved with and sat on a panel of experts for the Tompkins County housing summit.  I am also a member of the Trumansburg Area Chamber of Commerce and have served  on its board of directors for the last five years and now as 2018 Vice President.  In addition, I am a member of the Ithaca Downtown Business Women group.

I have received the Ithaca Journal’s Reader’s Choice Award for one of the best real estate agents two years in a row,  the Ithaca Board of REALTORS President’s award, the   RE/MAX’s 100% club and am a 2017 RE/MAX Hall of Fame Inductee. Most recently I was awarded the Ithaca REALTOR of the Year for 2017. 

My career is my passion; it’s not a ‘job’ when you love what you do.  But when not cultivating my career, I’m homeschooling my two boys,  reading, working on jigsaw puzzles, attending Journey Fitness, golfing,  cheering on my Steelers, and patronizing all the amazing restaurants, breweries and wineries the Finger Lakes has to offer.

Erin Gray, REALTOR

Hello! I’m Erin Gray, a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson with the Hart and Homes Real Estate Team at RE/MAX In Motion. I specialize in buying and selling residential properties in the Ithaca, NY area and beyond.

I was born in Ithaca’s own Cayuga Medical Center and grew up in Trumansburg – just a few quick miles up the lake from Ithaca. After heading to college to acquire my Bachelor’s degree and subsequently moving to New York City for five years afterwards, I decided to move back home. It was only then that I realized how much I took for granted all those adolescent years and what a fantastic (and gorges) place the Fingerlakes Region truly is. Being born and raised here and now calling it my home for good, I have extensive knowledge of the area. So whether you’re looking to buy or sell, you can feel confident in your decision to have me help you through the process in whichever neighborhood you decide to call home.

My mission is to provide you with a stress-free and personalized experience while meeting your goals as fast and professionally as possible.

I offer a fresh approach to working with a REALTOR and pride myself in being able to offer you a down to earth experience in a world filled with negotiating, contracts, and real estate jargon. My passion lies in giving my clients an ease of mind in the knowledge that I’ll be there to guide them through all of these complexities, while they make one of the biggest decisions of their life.

When I’m not immersed in helping my clients buy or sell a home, you’ll find me spending time with my family, playing with our lion of a Golden Retriever, cheering on the Yankees and NY Giants, hitting up one of our many local wineries/breweries, hosting friends for brunch, binging on a new Netflix series, or actively searching for my own forever home.

Tiffany Bechtold, REALTOR

Born with the heart of an adventurer, Tiffany did what many have thought to do but few have had the courage to execute:  She chose a brand new home, literally, off a map.  As recent college graduates living in Virginia, Tiffany and her husband decided to move to upstate New York and they fell in love with the Ithaca area.  Ten years, three kids, two houses, and multiple pets later, they have become “locals” in the hometown they never knew they always wanted.  Tiffany’s love for Real Estate began as a supplement to her full-time job – motherhood.

She was quickly reminded that being able to help people was in her blood, something she had first learned in her decade-long tenure with the American Cancer Society.  This passion to help has been rekindled in a desire to assist people with their most personal possession – their home.  Through personal experience, Tiffany has learned that having an agent who is truly on your side can make all the difference in the buying or selling process.  Tiffany is committed to collaborating with you no matter what your real estate wants or needs may be. 

During her free time Tiffany enjoys life! She loves being a mom and a wife, she teaches fitness classes and has found a new passion for gardening and chickens! She is often found doing anything outdoors in this beautiful area she now calls home.
