Somers is a town located in northeastern Westchester County, New York, United States. As of the 2019 census, the town had a population of 21,574. The nearby Metro-North Commuter Railroad provides service to Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan with an average commute time of 65 to 75 minutes from stations at Purdys, Goldens Bridge, Croton Falls, and Katonah.
Somers was originally inhabited by Native Americans known as Kitchawanks, an Algonquian people who called the land Amapaugh, meaning “freshwater fish''. This land was located in the eastern segment of an 83,000-acre tract King William III of England granted to Stephanus Van Cortlandt of New York City in 1697. The Van Cortlandt Manor that ultimately became Somers and Yorktown was known as the Middle District, or Hanover. At the first known town meeting of the European settlers held on March 7, 1788, the town named Stephentown was established. However, there already existed a Stephentown in Rensselaer County. To alleviate confusion, the name was changed in 1808 to Somers to honor Richard Somers, a naval captain from New Jersey who died in combat during the First Barbary War. A memorial in West Somers Park was erected in his honor at Memorial Day Ceremonies in 1958.
Let's be real. Real estate agents come in lots of different packages –with each promising to sell your home for the highest possible price in the least amount of time or find you the home of your dreams. Both great promises, but no transparency as to how those agents actually intend to deliver on those promises. Never mind the crazy offers from agents to give sellers double their money back - huh? or to buy a home if they don't sell it (I'm sure THAT isn't going to be the highest possible price). The net net is that it takes exceptional marketing, constant research and a proven system to help sellers sell and buyers buy.
