Born and raised in Switzerland, Yves recently joined Corcoran - Country Living after working in the film industry as an award-winning producer.
Before starting his career in real estate, Yves collaborated for several years with HBO and worked with top celebrities in New York City, Paris and Geneva on TV and film projects. Prior to his experience in entertainment, Yves worked in the hospitality industry and is passionate about taking care of his clients — giving particular attention to their unique needs.
After years of urban life, Yves and his wife, Katharine, a food anthropologist, decided to embrace the tranquil yet culturally rich life that the Hudson Valley offers. Well-traveled and curious, Yves speaks 6 languages and maintains his connections to the international community in NYC. Having studied at the Gerriet Rietveld Arts Academy in Amsterdam, he has developed a keen eye for art, design and architecture.
As a fervent chef and avid hiker, Yves regularly supports local farms and takes advantage of the numerous gorgeous hiking trails across upstate New York. His signature dish is a Spanish paella, which you can find him preparing on most summer weekends for friends and family.
Yves will always be ready to take the extra mile for you. He strongly believes in educating his clients through the process of buying and selling real estate. Should you want to sell your house or acquire your next home, he will guide you through this process, update you on market conditions and negotiate with utmost transparency and respect for each party.

In 1970 Jean Smitchger established her real estate company on Main Street in Cornwall. Her husband, John Smitchger, joined her in 1972. They spent their professional energy “bringing people home to Cornwall.”
Their daughter, Ellen Kelly, joined the firm in 1992. Together they continued to provide professionalism at its best to the community they loved. Jean retired in 2005, leaving that trusted mission to John & Ellen. Smitchger Realty has maintained the leading sales position in the Cornwall area year after year as evidenced by the number of happy families who consider this company their friend and neighbor.
Sadly in March of 2009, John Smitchger passed away. Ellen Smitchger Kelly has taken the reins as Broker/Owner, maintaining the driving force of professionalism that makes this company #1 in Cornwall. Our agents look forward to assisting our customers with their real estate needs.
As a real estate professional, I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why I am dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of my clients.
