About Margaret M Niekrewicz

Providing comprehensive client service has always been a priority in Margaret Mondello’s career. In 1988 she worked as the Administrative Assistant to the President of a marketing communications firm in New York City, whose major clients were the C-level executives of Mobil Oil Corporation. She then moved to California and served guest’s needs as a VIP concierge at Le Meridian, a 5-star hotel located in Newport Beach. Subsequently, Margaret became the tourism Director at The Newport Beach Conference & Visitors Bureau for several years. In 1996, Margaret returned to her roots in New York’s Hudson Valley to start her family and explore the world of real estate. Joining her mother and sisters at their Gallatin, NY offices of Audrey Mondello Real Estate, she found a career that was flexible enough and complementary to her newfound motherhood. She appreciates the beauty and varied seasons the Hudson Valley offers, coupled with its convenient proximity to Manhattan. Margaret is extremely familiar with the region and the many changes that have taken place in and around her hometown. In 2010, Margaret and her sisters relocated the family business from Gallatin into the heart of the village of Red Hook. From their quaint, comfortable new offices, they serve the real estate requirements of the Red Hook community and the surrounding area. Margaret specializes in a wide variety of clientele, from young families just starting out, to well-established second-home buyers. Her listing portfolio covers everything from a modest single-story home to multi-unit apartment complexes. She finds it fascinating and gratifying to work with a wide range of real estate buyers, and always pays close attention to their needs and dreams; she is proud to serve them and obtain the results they desire. Margaret resides in Tivoli, NY with her husband Dan, a local builder, and her two children, who attend the Red Hook School system and are actively involved in many of the area’s programs such as karate, ballet, and sports.“I look forward to working with you, whether you are buying or selling. I will give you my undivided attention and make sure that all the many details are covered. I am confident that you will be satisfied with my knowledge and expertise in handling your personal real estate transaction.”

    I was looking for a property to rent with no such luck on my own. Margaret helped me look for (and FIND) the perfect home. She worked very hard and quickly to make sure everything went smoothly. I recommend her to everyone I meet that is looking to rent, buy or sell. ~ Melissa Manto Pine Plains, N.Y.

    Margaret expertly managed a rental property I owned in Red Hook for many years. Living in Spain and not being able to travel due to Covid, I put total trust in Margaret and she exceeded expectations. She treated the property as if it was her own and took care of all issues, large and small, often catching minor problems that would have become major problems without her foresight and intervention. She screened and lined up new tenants in advance so that we hardly missed a day’s rent in the transition process. In addition, she was my sales agent for the sale of the property in early July 2021 and helped me through a very challenging sales process. I can’t say enough good things about Margaret’s professionalism, communication skills, and attention to detail. S. Saifer; Spain/ Red Hook, N.Y.

    Margaret is absolutely top notch. She is extremely caring. Margaret assisted our family in listing our house and helping on many ancillary things such as helping to have the house cleaned, carpet replaced and removing . Margaret always responded immediately to us and was extremely professional. I could not recommend her any more strongly and you will not be disappointed.  Red Hook, N.Y.

    Margaret is the Realtor you want …high market intelligence, always available, responsive, and gets it done. A rare find in this area! I have worked with her on single-family properties, as well as land, listing/selling, acquiring, and multi-family listing rentals. Tivoli, N.Y.

    My partner and I loved working with Margaret during our recent home purchase in February 2021. She was so easy to work with during the entire process, beginning with looking at our new home in December, was brought to close in record speed in just about 2 months. She was available by phone and text at all times to coordinate with the seller, answered all of our questions about the local community, and connected us with vendors and other helpful ideas along the way. She is a lovely, wonderful person and great at her job! Jason Drucker; Red Hook, N.Y.

    As newbies in upstate NY, approached Margaret because her firm (Mondello Upstate Properties) has a very strong presence in the area we were searching. Working from her was great from the offset! Margaret guided us through the process from start to end. She was very responsive, and was happy to come out whenever we needed to view properties. She is knowledgeable and well connected, and – once we had an accepted offer – introduced us to a number of service providers in relation to our purchase (inspector, attorney etc.) We would definitely recommend Margaret, and happily work with her again in the future. Delphine Johnsen; Elizaville, N.Y.

    Margaret is very knowledgeable about the local market. She is first of all honest. She promptly attends to any issues that arise during inspections. She treats all parties involved with respect. She is effective in her communications with the town governments, inspectors and any contractors or vendors engaged to address issued with the properties being sold. She promptly follows up and provides written information that is complete to the sellers/buyers and attorneys involved in the transaction. She makes all transaction as smooth and seamless as possible. I worked with her on many transactions as a real estate attorney and chose her to personally represent me with the sale my own property. A. Kirschner; Red Hook, N.Y.

    We needed to move in the middle of winter, during the height of the pandemic, and into a very tough real estate market. Everything about the process was hard and stressful except for Margaret. She worked so hard to help us figure things out, was incredibly responsive, and is extremely knowledgeable and smart. But most of all, what touched us, is that Margaret is a truly caring, compassionate, and authentic person. She and her family-run business really do care; it’s a breath of fresh air in a business that can feel cut-throat, impersonal, and money-grabbing. She knows the area incredibly well, can make suggestions about all kinds of issues, and really understands the broader context of the real estate market. Every step of the way, Margaret was helpful, kind, and clear-headed. It feels like we didn’t just buy a house, we made a friend. We are very grateful for her help and generosity. She really went above and beyond. Polina Malikin; Red Hook, N.Y.

    Worked with Margaret and her team to buy both properties we own now. Great experience. Always very responsive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Highly recommended. Gentian Shero; Red Hook, N.Y.

    In these days of corporate conglomerates and mega-companies it is refreshing to work with a local professional who personally knows the area because she is actually FROM the area. Mondello Realty delivers excellent service with a personal touch. As our listing agent Margaret was very positive during the entire process of our home sale despite some of the usual inspection hiccups and subsequently sold the property in record time. She works hard for her clients and it shows. Mondello Realty is composed of good communicators and honest brokers. I highly recommend her realtor services and would use her again in a NY minute! Robert Dupont; Red Hook, N.Y.

    Margaret is the best realtor I’ve ever worked with. First of all, she is calm. That’s my favorite quality in a realtor. Because a lot happens when you’re looking for and buying a house, and I want someone who doesn’t get so caught up in what’s happening that they make me crazy, too. Secondly, she really listens. Our house hunt was an ongoing conversation, where she was really piecing together what I wanted better than I could myself. Thirdly, she is extremely direct, clear, and honest, which makes everything easier. And finally, she has a great sense of humor and is fun to be around, even when things get down to the wire and stressful. I have already recommended Margaret to friends who are looking in this area, and I feel very secure putting them in her hands. Joe Mort; Rhinebeck, N.Y.

    Your search for a real estate professional should end with Margaret and Mondello Upstate Properties. Margaret is exceptional in all areas. She truly cares about her clients and has a way of fully understanding their needs and wants. She helped us find our new home in just a week and made the entire process easy and enjoyable, which is especially valuable during this time. Margaret was reliable in communication and we felt like she was there for us at anytime to address comments or concerns. In choosing to work with Margaret and to support her women owned + led agency, you’ll get to experience an intimate and authentic search for your home that will not disappoint. Amy Cooper; Red Hook, N.Y.

    I highly recommend working with Margaret! She made the entire process of renting a new house stress-free and efficient. It can be difficult to make such big life decisions, but she was so lovely to work with, and kept us updated throughout the process in a very timely manner that it made the process easy. I really appreciated her responsiveness, flexibility, and clear communication. I definitely recommend working with Margaret! Betsy Thorleifson; Red Hook, N.Y.

    “I’d highly recommend Margaret and the Mondello agency in general. We were working with one of the larger brokerage houses for a month and they didn’t manage to rent our house, and so we switched to Mondello. I like the fact that they are a local, women owned business – and within 2.5 weeks they had the place rented. Margaret is really professional, knows the market and is very personable. She helped make recommendations on best practices for showing the place, she did the leg work of social, media, drafting the lease agreement and going through the local and state laws on rental units with the new tenants.”

    Margaret is a great real estate agent. She responds quickly to any call or questions I have. She is very patient and not pushy. I feel very confident and comfortable working with her. We bought a house through her over ten years ago and she is the first and only person we phoned for our next  investment
