Looking to Buy or Sell Real Estate?

Look no further than Holly Real Estate in Carmel, New York (845) 225-8000. My recent personal experience with Doug Holly, his staff and family has been outstanding. Doug Holly goes above and beyond what you would normally expect. From providing paint and supplies so that I could make my home more presentable for sale to helping me move out furniture and even buying some himself during my moving sale, to enlisting the aid of his son to help clean up the basement, garage and barn, to always being available if needed, to being in so many ways a friend as well as a realtor. I cannot say enough about how helpful, kind and honest the Holly Real Estate family is.

If you are looking to sell your house, Doug Holly will get it sold. If you are looking to buy, Doug will find the right home for you. You simply cannot go wrong.

Both Ted and I would like to extend a big thank you for the job you did in selling our house in Carmel.  Your knowledge of the area and of value of homes was indeed excellent.  You netted us $15,000 more than other competitor real estate agents valued our house at.  

You were very aggressive in seeing that all our permits and paperwork were up to date and kept us well informed of progress on various fronts.  Your advertisements of our house were impressive as our house sold in less than 3 months.  

We truly appreciate the time and effort you expended for us.  If you are ever in our area, please look us up.  We would love to visit with you.  

- Ellen & Ted


 I can't tell you how grateful my family and i are for the wonderful job you did in selling my mother's home.  Anything that could go wrong did, and you handled every obstacle as if it was the first.  I will forever be grateful to you all for the wonderful job you did. I will always highly recommend "Holly Real Estate" to anyone who will listen.

Sal and I cannot thank you enough for all that you did to aid us in selling the house. It wasn't the first time I witnessed your commitment to your clients, as I remember how you helped us with the septic issue after we moved into Cross Road.  This, however, was an unprecedented situation, at least for us. For all of the pain and sorrow this chapter in our lives has elicited, the kindness and diligence of others has been a soothing balm.  Getting this deal done was nothing short of a miracle. I believe in miracles and that God works through others to help bring them about.  We want to thank you, Bob, and John, for all that you did to help bring our ours about.  We left Putnam with many memories from our 23 years there.  Your kindness is not one we will soon forget. 

- Lynie and Sal

- Markus & Kim


We just wanted to thank you for everything that you have done for us.  We feel that you have done a lot of above and beyond things for us.  If it wasn't for you helping us all the way through, we wouldn't have "our new home".  We really feel that we have made a new friend

Thanks again for everything! Once we get a little settled, we really would like to have you and your wife to dinner!

 TOWN OF KENT- A well established and respected Putman County real estate agent has donated his $35,000 commission to the Kent Library building on Route 52 near the Carmel-Kent line.  Douglas Holly and Robert Bradley of Holly Real Estate in Lake Carmel closed the deal on the 3,000 square foot building last Friday for $350,000.

Bradley said he and his associate believed in their town.  "We have been in this community for 40 years.  It was time for us to give back in the hope that others will follow.  What better organization can you support in a community other than your neighborhood library?" he said. 

The building was sold to Four Fold Enterprises, a corporation that intends to convert the former library into an office complex consisting of lawyer's offices, a certified public accountant and other professionals.

The former library was constructed in the 1950's. Bradley said once completely renovated, "the building will look brand new.  Besides, the building will be back on the tax rolls.  Let's call this a win-win all around"

Kent Library Director Dona Boyer was thrilled.  "What a generous gift from a local business.  We at the library can't begin to thank Mr. Holly and Mr. Bradley for their philanthropy and community spirit.  The money will go a long way, " she said.
