Beautiful lake, exactly as you described it ... a wonderful legacy for our whole family.

"Just wanted to let everyone at Land First know how happy we are that we found you and this awesome property. It is the most beautiful lake, exactly as you described it. A true treasure that we didn’t think still existed in the Adirondacks - or anywhere else as far as that goes. As you can see by the pictures we are coming along great with our dream home on the lake. The kids and grandkids have already been swimming, kayaking, and canoeing the crystal clear water. We hope to be in the lake house in a month or so, can’t wait! This truly is a wonderful legacy for our whole family. Thanks again and hopefully you’ll stop in every now and then to say hello."

Opportunity of a lifetime...most people would never know about...Thanks to Land First!

"Discovering what Land First had to offer was the opportunity of a lifetime! Being able to purchase a unique property in the Adirondack region is a dream come true. The team at Land First made the process easy to understand, and I was able to get a terrific deal on the kind of waterfront property on a private lake that most people would never even know about! All of the documents were handled professionally and efficiently. Thanks to Land First, I now have a place where I can get away to in a beautiful location, and Land First connected me with a builder who really understands exactly what I am looking for. Everyone involved has been attentive to my questions and concerns, from environmental issues to practical issues of building in the woods. I am very excited to watch the progress as the cabin is constructed, and look forward to the day when I can just go and relax, enjoy the beautiful wilderness and appreciate the amazing Adirondacks!"

Land First has been incredible from start to finish...Perfect piece of land...

"My experience with Land First has been incredible from start to finish. I so appreciate the time and attention Jake Basta spent helping me to find the perfect piece of land at Portaferry Lake.  I am so happy with the location and the the view- I can already see myself sitting on the deck looking at the lake after a day of kayaking and swimming and hiking.  I look forward to building a cabin and bringing my family together for weekend getaways and summer vacations for years to come; To making memories and enjoying the fresh air, the clear lake and all that Upstate New York has to offer. Portaferry will be my second home and I am thrilled. Thank you Land First!"

A place we dearly love, we never thought possible...priceless long-lasting memories!

"For any family that enjoys the great outdoors, the challenge is often being able to access the woods and the wilderness and be able to get there on a year round basis. Because our family came across the offerings of Land First at Portaferry Lake, we are now able to get to a place that we dearly love, the Adirondacks, on a year round basis. Owning property in this area something we never thought possible, yet Land First, has helped us make this happen—with the attentive help of Jake Basta."

" From the initial showing of the available properties, through the decision making process about which property would be suit the needs of our family, through finding lenders and handling many of the legal parts of making the purchase, and then to helping select the perfect contractor to build our dream home at Portaferry Lake, Land First has provided not only a strong professional component, but an incredible personal touch. We have felt welcomed into the Land First family, and know that we can trust them with any questions or concerns.  Having a place where our family can all enjoy being together, on a year-round basis, is a wonderful feeling—and Portaferry is perfect for this! When the daily grind of life weighs you down, escaping to the woods can make it all better. We are able to reconnect and enjoy nature, either together or in our own personal way, depending on the mood."

"In the short time that we have had the property that we purchased from Land First, we have enjoyed so many adventures, and we are confident that we can look forward to many more. Whether we are in the mood to hike, fish, walk, swim, run, bike, or just relax around the campfire, this unique opportunity is something we are grateful we didn’t miss. Thanks, Land First, and Jake, for helping us build a place for not only amazing bonfires but priceless and long-lasting family memories! "

Treated Me as Though We Were Long Lost Friends...appreciate the refreshing approach

Hello Bill,   I felt a thank you for a great day this past Sunday was warranted. I really appreciated the refreshing approach to your method of selling a property. It was wonderful dealing w/ someone who really takes an interest in creating a transaction mutually beneficial to both parties. You were thoughtful, informative sincere & very professional. I appreciate having that level of service, especially in light of the current times we live in. You really treated me as though we were long lost friends.   I look forward to closing the deal in another week & to many years of enjoyment at Acorn Acres. I believe it will be a special place. Hopefully, we can connect in the near future & enjoy a fishing day together. Thank You, Stay Well See you soon!

Land First...a family approach...there for you!

The whole experience made us feel like we were part of a family. From our first inquiry, to the terrain walk of our property, to the closing, to the packet we received with a set of coasters and photos, to our relook of the property after we were owners, the entire experience was great. Land First Inc, and our salesman, were professional and upfront, there was no hidden fees or stipulations. After the transaction was complete, our saleperson left the lines of communication open and offered himself to any questions or inquiries. Land First, Inc. – a family feel/approach - - there for you!

I would recommend this company (Land First) very highly...

"What a breath of fresh air. I just had to write and let you know how satisfied we are with Land First. Our land specialist showed us every aspect of our property and worked with us to find the right contractors to finish our dream. I would recommend this company very highly. My family and I never realized how beautiful and peaceful upstate New York is and only three and half hours from home."
