Zillow doesn't post ALL of my sales.. Millions in Sales Every year!

ADK Realty is Broker Owned by Johnstown native, MaryEllen (Mel) Charles. I love living and working in the Southern Adirondacks!  I've been in Real Estate since the 1980's with double digit interest rates! Yes, it's all I do and I do sell a lot of Real Estate, I listen to your needs and desires and I work hard to make your dreams come true.

Having grown up here and enjoying this wonderful area and the great variety it offers allows me to present a unique perspective to Buyers & Sellers. I am able to offer individualized and very personalized Real Estate Services to Buyers and Sellers without practicing Dual/Designated Agency where buyers and sellers have NO fiduciary that provides: care, confidentiality obedience, loyalty, accountability, duty to report. Why would anyone do that?  It's illegal in most States. Buying & Selling Real Estate is most people's biggest purchase or sale! I'm here to help make the transaction go smoothly, from start to finish. I assist in tax grievances, I will show buyers ALL the properties that meet their needs (not just my listings) Sellers I work hard and advertise extensively. Being a Sole Proprietor I can give breaks on commissions to facilitate sales.
 
ADK Realty's customers & clients receive the highest level of service & extensive knowledge that should be expected.  My main Office is in Caroga Lake and also by utilizing a "Mobile" office, you'll enjoy the advantages of seeing first hand what is happening in the Real Estate Market. If you don't want to travel to my office, I have a portable printer, scanner & computer or you'll be welcome to stop by the office located at 2144 State Hwy 10, Caroga Lake. NY 12032 

Mary Ellen and ADK Realty are a NY State Licensed Broker & Realtor Members of The National Association of Realtors, The New York State Association of Realtors and area Boards of Realtors and their Multiple Listing Services; the Fulton County Board of Realtors and MLS (FCBR-MLS), the Greater Capital Region Board Of Realtors and MLS (CRMLS) MaryEllen has served on committees for the Fulton Co. Board of Realtors & was Voted Assoc. Realtor of the Year 2006-07. I am also a Professional Ski Instructor (PSIA) I teach at Royal Mountain, here in Caroga Lake.

Bought a home in 2013.

We cannot say enough good things about Mel, We have worked with her twice! When we were first time home buyers she helped us a wonderful house and was very patient and informed to answer or assist us in everything! Our 2nd time around was just as great, she showed us a ton of homes and helped us negotiate a great price and as with the first house she was always there when we needed her!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Northville, NY.

I cannot praise Maryellen enough!!! My husband and I were interested in finding a home in the area. We are so happy that we worked with Maryellen. She really knows real estate, she is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, straight foward, and she is not afraid to walk through the woods to show you the entire property. We purchased a home through her and it was a pleasure. I will recommend everyone looking for a home in the area to her because she is excellent!!  More Less

Sold a home in 2009.

Mel is the most honest agent I have ever met. She specializes in Adirondack properties but is knowledgeable in all areas. Having lived here all her life, she knows the area and the people.
