Paul Hallenbeck has been a very busy man during the past 29 years.  He has earned the distinction of having the top personal record of transactions for the past 16 years of all Realtors in Dutchess County. Now that is something to brag about! But even better, he just keeps on selling and listing properties. His clients brag about him, the agents in his office admire him, and other Realtors wonder how he does it.  One clue can be found in the words honesty and integrity. He represents his clients, not himself. He is a professional through and through.

However, Paul is far from one dimensional.  He earned a bachelor's degree in English from SUNY Geneseo, and then continued to take many advanced courses as he taught students the wonder of reading, writing, listening and speaking in his English classes at Canandaigua Junior Academy.  While doing that he saw the needs of his students and decided to obtain a master's degree in Guidance from SUNY Brockport.  Rhinebeck Bulkeley Middle School called and he headed south for an interview.  He loved the job he took as team leader and guidance counselor for 25 years. 

Those who know Paul know his high energy level and after growing way too many tomatoes in his garden he decided to take the real estate course and earn some money for his two son's college education.  Well that was it, after school and on Saturday he became one of the best Realtors in the Valley.  Upon his retirement from the Bulkeley School he and his wife Sally, opened their own real estate office. That was in 1998. The highly successful firm continues to innovate and apply the latest technology to meet the demands of today's buyers and sellers.

Paul really enjoys Rhinebeck as evidenced by the number of hours he has spent on the Master Plan Committee for the Town of Rhinebeck and as a member of the Board of Wilderstein.

You would think there was no time for anything else but he travels extensively, works out every day, hikes, loves to eat in fine restaurants, and of course pampers his wife, and his 6 grandchildren. 

If you think his knowledge, his enthusiasm and his high energy are what you want in your Realtor just give him a call or e-mail him. You will be glad you did.
