Daniel Christmas, President, Licensed Real Estate Broker
Dan Christmas - Christmas & Associates

Dan was born and raised in Camden, NY. His commitment to hard work and love of the outdoors was instilled in him at a young age. He attended Paul Smith's College and graduated with honors in 1981. In the years to follow, Dan "stayed the course" by working as a woodlands caretaker, hunting & fishing guide, forester, logging supervisor, timber cruiser, and an acquisition agent. It was Dan's love for the woods and his desire to provide land to "everyday folks" that prompted him to form Christmas & Associates, Inc. in 1989.

Dan's interests include hunting, fishing, trapping, canoeing, Alpine and Nordic skiing & snowboarding but he will say that his greatest accomplishment in life was raising six beautiful children. Dan's devotion to family, love for the land, generous spirit and strong work ethic have shaped his life and formed the foundation and success of Christmas & Associates, Inc.

Marc Christmas - Vice President, Licensed Real Estate Broker
Marc Christmas - Christmas & Associates

As Vice President of Christmas and Associates, Marc Christmas leads a team of three land guides and heads up the company’s cabin building crew. Marc also works with his father, Dan Christmas, in finding and bringing new land acquisitions to market. He also helps his sister, Rebecca Russell, in running the company’s latest venture, Christmas Country Homes – a residential brokerage company.

Marc learned the land business from his father from the ground up by working for Christmas and Associates starting when he was 12 years old - clearing camp lots, marking boundary lines and doing logging and forestry work. He eventually earned his real estate license and began working for the company in sales and acquisitions. Marc currently holds his real estate broker’s license and is now an experienced and respected leader in the family company, acting as business partner to his father and founder of the company, Dan Christmas.

Marc grew up in the Adirondack Mountains in Tupper Lake and has hunted, fished and canoed most of his life. He moved to Camden New York when the company relocated and while central New York is his home, he has also spent a considerable amount of time touring large tracts of land in Colorado and Montana.

Today, Marc is married and father to three daughters. Marc rarely takes time off but when he does, you will find him building something for his family – from retrofitting an old camp kitchen for his dad to building furniture for his wife and helping his brother build a new house! He is an extremely hard worker and is motivated and driven by a whole-hearted commitment to his family and to the success of Christmas and Associates.

Chad Landry - Land Guide, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson
Chad Landry - Christmas & Associates

Chad Landry comes to us from the Adirondack Mountains where he worked with his father at their family-owned logging business in Tupper Lake, New York. Chad learned about hard work at an early age—spending weekends and days off from school with his father learning how to harvest lumber and manage timberlands.

More recently, Chad turned his love for working in the woods into a new career at Christmas & Associates. Chad enjoys talking to people about land and is especially skilled at advising customers about the value of timber on their property. Chad’s background is also helpful when he works with customers to choose a site for building a cabin or the best location to locate a driveway. Chad’s early years in the woods also make him pretty skilled at spotting wildlife, so you won’t miss much if you are out walking land with Chad.

When Chad isn’t showing land to customers, he enjoys the outdoors and can be found riding a four-wheeler or a snowmobile in his free time. Chad’s favorite part about working for Christmas & Associates is meeting new people and talking with them about their hopes and dreams for buying NY land.

Joe Christmas - Forestry & Camp Crew, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson
christmas and associates

Like the rest of his family, Joe Christmas grew up outdoors - fishing, hunting, playing sports and riding ATVs and snowmobiles in the Adirondack town of Tupper Lake, New York. Joe grew up as his family business also grew – taking numerous trips to Colorado with his father, Dan Christmas, while the company expanded into Colorado and Montana. In more recent years, Joe has worked closely with his father, watching him work and communicate with people, teaching him about respect and how to treat customers and colleagues in the family land business.

At the age of 13, Joe started working summers at the family sawmill, learning the basics of running a chainsaw and other machinery, as well as learning camp construction skills from his father and older brother, Marc. This, in addition to many hunting and scouting trips with his dad, helped Joe gain woods knowledge at an early age. In 2009, Joe attended Outward Bound, an internationally known outdoor education school that teaches wilderness and leadership skills and the next year, he moved to Camden, NY and began working full-time for Christmas & Associates.

Like his father and older brother, Joe has learned the business from the ground up - constructing camps, logging, building roads, and clearing camp lots, including unique projects, such as building a floating camp and outhouse for a national television show! Most recently, Joe began working in land acquisitions and also obtained his real estate license. As a licensed agent, Joe looks forward to learning about land sales and to showing property to customers who share his love of the woods.

In addition to working full-time, Joe consistently helps with family projects as needed – helping his father renovate a lakefront cottage and working with his brother to build his own dream house.

Joe’s favorite moments are spent with his wife and three young daughters and when he isn’t building camps, keeping the company machines running or learning the real estate business, you will find him at home with his family or out scouting the woods for deer with has dad and brothers.

Joe is skilled, hardworking and loyal – a key contributor to the company and a pleasure to work with. You can reach Joe at or on his cell phone at 315-879-5621.
