Finger Lakes Realty Vision

At Finger Lakes Realty Partners we understand our clients are searching for different lifestyles. For some an ideal setting is a stately village home, close to schools and the energy of downtown. Others may want a waterfront property and the opulent lifestyle living on the shoreline can provide. Upstate New York is a truly unique area that requires more than a one size fits all marketing approach.  Our team caters and customizes the sales and marketing process to provide our clients the unparalleled service they desire; to exceed expectations as they embark on a journey and a transition in life.  FLR evolved from the need to provide a tailored, data-driven approach to high-end home sales. We live in the communities we serve.  We possess a range of marketing options to showcase your property in a preferential position; strategizing and adjusting as needed along the way, unlike the giant franchises.  Teaming with Finger Lakes Realty Partners, and placing our lightning logo sailboat sign in the yard, inherently adds value to homes and development sites; buyers know this is a local one-of-a-kind company that they trust and appreciate.

An idea in the 1930’s became a concept and then a reality in Skaneateles, NY, that changed the sailing world.  This change was the Lightning sailboat and benefitted both racers and pleasure sailors.

The Lightning is a 19 foot sloop rigged sailing dinghy originally designed by Olin Stephens in 1938.  The Lightning was built by the Skaneateles Boats Company and was first sailed on Skaneateles Lake.  Skaneateles is considered the Gateway to the Finger Lakes.  The introduction of the Lightning made an impact on sailing throughout the entire area, then gradually the USA and the world.  More than 15,000 Lightnings have been built since then.  There are over 500 fleets of Lightnings worldwide, many of which participate in racing.

Awarded ISAF International Class status, the Lightning is sailed in more than 13 countries and in the Pan American Games, and the class provides a professionally managed association that is among the largest in all of one-design sailing.  A World Championship is held every two years.  North American, South American and European Championships are held each year as are innumerable regional and district championships.

The concept, development and launch of the Lightning is a true Finger Lakes’ success story.  This type of success is in direct correlation with the concept and goals behind Finger Lakes Realty Partners.  A remarkable idea combined with the right team of real estate professionals is capable of taking a traditional business to a greater level.  Finger Lakes Realty Partners strives to provide professionalism, compassion and value in serving our clients throughout the Finger Lakes Region.  Ultimately, creating the same unparalleled success as the Lightning.
