A Brief Summary on Dennis and Sara Duga, the Owners.
Licensed since 1984. Broker of record for over 1,600 properties sold in CT, MA, RI, NY & VT. Certified Residential Specialist (only 5% of brokers/agents nationwide) and Graduate Realtor Institute. Additional areas of advanced specialization:
LAND SALES: One of the top 3 land sales agents in the state in the last two decades. Advanced knowledge of CT & MA septic code criteria, land use, zoning and subdivision regulations, open space programs, woodland management, timber and mineral values, survey, tax and title issues, access, utilities, wetlands, site line, grade, drainage and erosion control concerns. Courses completed at UCONN in appraisal and construction cost estimating. I teach a class titled "Tips on Buying and Selling Land".
BED & BREAKFAST SALES: Number 1 in Bed in Breakfast/Country Inn sales in CT since 1998; probably MA too except I do not handle Cape Cod. Familiar with industry units of comparisons and market standards such as annual revenue per guest room, gross revenue multiplier, price per guest room, capitalization rate, loan qualifying standards, negotiating all aspects of conveyance including values for contents, goodwill, covenant not to compete, training, room deposits, gift certificates etc. In the past I have taught a one day course geared toward Realtors called "How to Sell Bed & Breakfasts and Country Inns" which covers qualifying buyers in the areas of lifestyle and owners quarters needs, lending standards, conveyance of the business and industry units of comparison.
LAKE PROPERTIES: I have lived at lakes for 37 years and owned 13 lake properties in CT & MA; have been to every single lake (primarily in a brokerage capacity) located East of the CT River in an area from Hartford, east to the Rhode Island border and north to the MA border. I have worked in a brokerage capacity at most lakes east of the CT River south to Long Island Sound, and, north to Southern Hampden and Worcester counties in MA. This can involve everything from knowledge of lake acreage and depth, road/lake ownership and maintenance (or association structure), watercraft use limits and other regulations or deed covenants, what type of fishery, solar orientation, etc.
