ALTAMONT — In a red-hot housing market, real-estate agent Ryan Clark came up with an idea to make his client stand out.

He noticed police uniforms in the garage of the Guilderland home being sold by Joseph Mazzone, an officer with the Altamont Police.

“There were seven offers on the house,” said Jamie Mazuryk, the seller’s agent, a one-time Altamont police officer herself who now works as an agent for CM Fox.

“It just hit me,” said Clark of Berkshire Hathaway. “It’s the first time I’ve done this. I said I’d make a donation to the police department of their choice.”

His $500 was matched with $500 from C M Fox — and the Altamont Police were the recipients.

Altamont’s outgoing police chief, Todd Pucci — he retires at the end of the month — and the incoming chief, Jason Johnston, both said the $1,000 would go towards a radar unit for the department’s new vehicle, a hybrid Ford Explorer.
