We specialize in representing buyers and sellers of residential property, predominantly in Saratoga, Warren, Washington, and Schenectady counties. We have significant experience selling lakefront property and are subject matter experts in residential property of all stripes.
We know how important a home sale or purchase is for our clients, which is why we strive to be the best in the profession. We bring a wealth of real time market knowledge and trends, expert negotiation skills and the ability to listen carefully. Our company culture places a high value on attention to detail and doing things thoroughly and correctly. We just don't enjoy being Realtors®, we absolutely love our profession, meeting new clients, championing your interests, and helping you move forward.
Equitas Realty was established in 2008, but operated as a franchise of a large national brand. In 2014 our owner and Principle Broker, Janet Besheer, took the company private, and we've been Equitas Realty ever since.
For a long time, our office was located on the corner at 38 High Rock Ave in Saratoga Springs. In 2020, with construction of a metered parking garage across the street, which replaced what had been a large free parking lot, and the pandemic, with all the related health concerns, we decided it was time for a change.
We are now conveniently located in our regional mall, the Wilton Mall at Saratoga, at the entrance between Healthy Living Market & Cafe/Planet Fitness and HomeGoods. Our clients can still enjoy (seemingly unlimited) free parking, and be confident of their safety in the Mall's specially filtered and routinely sanitized environment.
Our office is open from 10am to 5pm, Monday - Friday.
These three concepts form the basis of our modus operandi.
Moving is foundational to what we do: we enjoy setting things in motion and keeping things in motion, and work tirelessly to shepherd the change you want to effect, whether buying or selling.
We are, unapologetically, a people-centric company. Strong relationships and open communication are essential. We understand the value of honesty and we know how to listen. Our commitment to understanding your needs, connecting people and making things happen, is second to none. We have a large sphere of contacts and an ever-expanding network of relationships to leverage on your behalf.
Forward is not just a direction, for us it’s an attitude. Forward informs every aspect of what we do and why we do it. Our thinking is forward: it encompasses your goals and how to achieve them. We value knowledge and experience because it is fundamental to moving transactions forward. We value integrity because trust lubricates the gears of change. We value optimism because doubt slows forward momentum.
Forward is our standard, and our standards are high. Knowledge, integrity, optimism and excellence define our forward mentality. And this mentality is always directed at moving you forward.
