Albert J. Grant

My name is Albert, but I prefer to be called Al. When I moved to Pennsylvania in 1986 I was working in the Hotel business, first at Brown's Resort in the Catskills, then Pocmont and finally at Skytop Lodge, where I was employed until 2009. Turning 70 years old the company retired me, and that is when I took a friends' suggestion to try Real Estate. I have loved it ever since that day. I love to play golf, which I learned at Skytop, but there are many other fine courses in the Poconos. Gardening and the outdoors are my other interests. I often ask the homeowners I represent what they do to have a fine garden or landscaping, and I get many hints on what to do, what grows best, and how to keep the animals from the garden. I am always happy to share these hints with my clients. If you are renting or buying, a pretty home makes everyone feel good. If you are looking for something in the area, please give me a call.
