My name is Rita Watt and I was born and raised in Cortland Manor, NY. I moved to Pawling, NY when I was in the 11th grade. My mother and father are both from the beautiful island of St. Thomas, U.S.V.I., and I try to visit there at least once a year. I attended SUNY Oswego and University of Phoenix, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Administration. I will graduate with my Master’s Degree in May 2018 from Marist College. Eventually, I plan to get my PHD. I currently live in Pleasant Valley, NY, part of the beautiful Hudson Valley with my 4 awesome children (3 boys and 1 daughter ages 9-20). They brighten up my day each time I see their faces! I am 1 of 7 brothers and sisters. Spending time with my family and friends is very important to me.

In my leisure time, I love traveling, reading, writing, and drawing. Locally, I belong to the Poughkeepsie Exempt Fireman’s Association. I volunteer at soup kitchens and local youth educational programs in Dutchess County.

I currently work in the healthcare field as a Contract Negotiator. I have worked in the financial side of healthcare for almost 20 years and prior to that I was a Bank Manager. I recently decided to fulfill my longtime dream of becoming a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson. I chose to seek employment at Berkshire Hathaway because they are the #1 real estate company in the Hudson Valley. With their positive work environment, training, support and values, I know that I will be successful. I am committed to making every real estate transaction a positive one!
