Lucas Fiedler

I am in the business of helping people! Have been doing so since the moment I was born and helped my parents learn to parent! Living in Esperance on our small family farm with my wife and two children, I am the Business Development Officer for the National Bank of Coxsackie and work out of the Middleburgh Branch. I take great pride in helping members of our community and the Capital Region achieve the needs and wants they have in life. Whether it be by financial, educational, or connection means, I am honored to be the medium for the goal you seek. From multi-million dollar commercial loans, first time home owner mortgages, or financing for a new hay wagon, I am enthused with every conversation I have because it is to help!

Denise Lloyd

I like people, I like helping people;  and I am a problem solver by nature.  It makes me happy when I can help provide a solution(s).  Protecting families and businesses, providing ways to accumulate wealth and legacies and protecting assets are activities that I can do. How can I help you?  Call 518- 231-7081 or email me dmlloyd@ft.newyorklife.com  to set up a free consultation.  My office is located at 167 Amelia Lane, Middleburgh or I can come to you!

Psychologists have long considered the purchase or sale of a home high on the “top 10″list of “most stressful times in a persons life”. 

As a NY State Licensed Home Inspector, Home Inspector Trainer, and both an InterNACHI (InterNational Association of Certified Home Inspectors) member and Certified Master Inspector, I can help to reduce some of that stress. 

How? By having you present during the inspection. Many inspectors do not want the Client present. 

Having you, or your designated representative there during the inspection, I can show you points about the systems and structure, answer your questions and explain “how it works”. 

This aids you in better understanding the photo-documented written report.

I do the inspection process from an “arm distance, neutral, non emotionally involved point of view”. I work for YOU, my Client, not the Real Estate Agent whose income is dependent on “the sale”. 

AND, as long as I am “on the green side of the grass” I am willing to consult with you, even if it is several years after the inspection. 

I also offer several “ancillary” services such as RADON, Water and Mold Assessment.
