Trude B Fitelson Selling the Architecture of the Thousand Islands

Working in the Thousand Islands region, Trude has developed a special understanding of this unique area, known throughout the country as the "Venice of the East". From the quaint Victorian community of Thousand Island Park to the architecturally important turn of the century waterfront estates to the island cottages that dot the mighty St Lawrence River, Trude has developed a keen sense of the charm of personalities found at the "river".

Trude Fitelson has the expertise, experience and appreciation necessary to understand a property's "true" market value. Trude knows that a home is not merely an investment. Homeowners have more than a financial interest in their properties, they also have an emotional one.
"No sale is complete unless there exists a mutual understanding between the buyer and the seller. Through my experience and appreciation, I help both sides successfully connect."

Trude's office, Select Sotheby's Realty, is Thousand Island Park, a National Register Historic District on Wellesley Island. Trude's mission is to deliver quality, not quantity.
