About me

Dina Palin grew up in Great Neck and developed an early passion for the decorative arts and architecture by way of her mother, an art teacher and interior designer. They lived in an iconic 1910 Spanish Colonial Revival home filled with Nakashima furniture and Louise Nevelson sculpture. Her artistic evolution continued when the family moved to the Upper East Side and Dina was introduced to the joys of New York Museum life. An expert in historical lighting and design as well as antique furniture, for nearly twenty years Dina co – founded and ran Historical Materialism with locations in SoHo and Hudson, NY. Along-side her Hudson Valley brokerage business, Dina works selectively with top clients on custom and antique lighting choices for their homes.  Dina has split her time between New York City and the Hudson Valley since 1990, and has thoughtfully renovated several Hudson Valley retreats; the most notable of which was featured in Gross and Daley’s...

Single Family Home in Hudson NY 2019

Dina helped us through an almost year-long process of finding a home, where we weren't quite sure exactly what we really wanted, or even what our budget was - a lot to think through. She was quick to respond to every inquiry and request, and conscientious about having her office cover for her when  she was taking time off, which was extremely relevant when we were in final stages of making an offer. The market we bought in is fickle, with sellers who aren't so much selling as testing the market instead. Dina helped us rationalize a tough decision - and it couldn't have been more timely. We strongly recommend Dina Palin.

Home in Leeds, NY 2016

Dina is a pleasure to work with. Her low-key style, deep understanding of the area and trends are wonderful. She is patient and intrepid too and up for hunting for the perfect property. She keeps your needs in mind, and you may get a surprise call when she finds something interesting. Highly recommended!

Single Family home in Hudson, NY 2020

I was referred to Dina by a close friend whom she had helped purchase a property in town. We met the day after the referral and started seeing properties immediately. We continued to view local properties for about a month before finding the right home, at the right price and with an ideal  location. Dina made the process easy and helped with finding an attorney who helped me close on the property in record time. Furthermore, after closing, Dina came by to help me move furniture and art in my home. Dina was great. I now consider her a friend. She really has unique expertise in finding properties in Hudson.

Sold Multi Family home in Hudson, NY 2019

Dina sold a mixed use building in Hudson NY for me. Her local expertise allowed her to recognize potential local buyers, and helped a lot with out of town interest. She was able to speak to the culture and community of Hudson, and ultimately this is what got the deal done. I would recommend her  for the Hudson market without reservation.
