Ellicottville Homes and Property

Amy DeTine's Bio, Specializations, Awards

To be successful in business, your clients and the service you provide for them have to be your number one priority. My commitment to my clients goes beyond their immediate need to purchase or sell real estate - in many cases it is the beginning of a relationship that will carry over for years to come. My goal is to be their most knowledgeable "one stop shop" for everything in Ellicottville and the surrounding area - and that makes your buying or selling experience as pleasurable and stress free as possible. My introduction to Ellicottville and Cattaraugus County began the same as many of our visitors' - I came from my home in Buffalo to ski and later made it my home! Many more years ago than I can admit, I was drawn to the beauty and character of the area with its quaint and charming village, and beautiful ski resorts - a small town with all the cosmopolitan tributes of a big city!

My husband, Ted, and I live in Great Valley, just on the southern edge of Ellicottville, where we actually enjoy a view of Holiday Valley from our home. Our quiet creek-side setting is also home of the TLC Ranch, where my husband, and apprenticed horse trainer in natural horsemanship techniques, has thoroughly spoiled our four beautiful paint horses, Cyanne, Cherokee, Chesapeake, and Shiloh. An even more spoiled golden retriever, Waylan, rounds out the immediate family with a steady stream of visits from children, grandchildren, siblings, friends, and horse lovers, in general.

My father used to tell us that our animals had a better life than we did - for us it's the animals that enrich OUR lives and the lives of people around us!

When we're not tending to the horses, my husband and I hike every day - rain or shine, sleet or snow - with Waylan in tow. On the trails around the ski slopes and surrounding state land trails, we often snowshoe in the winter months, and occasionally our horses will find their way to the trails with us.

Tending to a busy real estate career, family, and animals leaves little time for golf and skiing, but a resident of Ellicottville cannot live here and NOT golf or ski -- so an excuse to get out there is always welcome, and always taken advantage of!
