RHINEBECK—H.H. Hill Realty Services Inc., a prominent boutique firm with deep roots in Rhinebeck, has recently joined Houlihan Lawrence’s Hudson Valley brokerage team.

H.H. Hill, which has a vintage, family-owned office on Montgomery Street in the heart of the Village of Rhinebeck, has six agents who specialize in the sale and purchase of Hudson River estates, landmark properties, homes, farms and vacant land as well as commercial properties. They serve Northern Dutchess, Southern Columba and Ulster counties and work with both full-time local residents and weekenders.

Longtime Rhinebeck resident Harry “Huck” Hill III, whose family has lived in Rhinebeck for more than 200 years, is the firm’s principal broker.

“We are thrilled to have such a reputable and longstanding firm join our team,” said Katherine Jennings, the manager of Houlihan Lawrence’s Millbrook office, who will also oversee the H.H. Hill agents. “We will now have more than 40 agents covering Dutchess, Columbia, Ulster and Greene counties in New York and Litchfield County in Connecticut. My goal is to make Houlihan Lawrence the regional representative for country homes in the Hudson Valley.”

She added, “We will now have a pool of 10 agents in Rhinebeck, representing Rhinebeck and the surrounding areas, including Ulster County.”

“We are very excited to be joining the Houlihan Lawrence team as its prominence and reputation for excellence in the Hudson Valley real estate market will provide new opportunities for all of our clients—past, present and future,” said Hill, who launched his real estate agency in 1991, having previously been a ship broker in New York City.

Along with Harry Hill, agents Nesly Brinkman, Doreen DeCarolis, Dana Goldberg, Vicki Hickman and Tom Williams will be joining Houlihan Lawrence.

Last year, H.H. Hill’s sales volume was $15,723,050, well ahead of its sales volume of $13,046,653 in 2016.

H.H. Hill will now be known as the H.H. Hill Realty team of Houlihan Lawrence. Clients will continue to find the Hill Realty team at its office at 6408 Montgomery St.
