"Hurricane Irene dropped 5 trees on the house with the most destruction to the back the house and in the backyard. I live 110 miles south in Highland, NY. When the real estate agent called to tell me there had been “significant” damage to the house I thought I was mentally prepared to see it. I spoke with Eric, and Derek on 8-31-11. Derek was kind enough to meet us that evening to evaluate the damage. Derek Phipps treated me with the utmost courtesy. He was as prompt as possible and never failed to return my calls.”
