Picky Buyers????? - 12/29/09 10:02 AM
WOW! I don't think I could have hung in there 2 years before this buyer found her "dream" home. I'm pretty patient with my buyers, but this is ridiculous!!!!

Property Taxes: The Hottest Topic in Home Sales in New Jersey - 12/13/09 01:10 PM
Any resident in NJ knows that property taxes is a real potent issue for real estate right now. Most of my buyers are concerned about what the current taxes are and what they may be in the future.

Foreclosures Can Offer Deals, but Buyer Beware - 12/05/09 08:53 AM
Many current buyers want a "deal", but not everyone is aware of the risks with buying REOs, nor do they have the patience to wait for bank approval of their purchase. Thats where we come in to educate the buyers and hopefully they will follow our guidance: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/05/your-money/mortgages/05money.html?_r=1&8dpc (0 comments)
Welcome to my blog. As an agent of Coldwell Banker, I focus on helping buyers and sellers who are interested in buying or selling homes in Denville, Mountain Lakes, Boonton, Rockaway and the surrounding area. I specialize in local townhome communities such as Berkshire Hills Condo and Townhomes in Denville, Spruce Edge Towhomes in Mountain Lakes, Hunting Ridge in Parsippany, and single-family homes in Denville, Mountain Lakes, Boonton and Rockaway. I also assist sellers who need an experienced agent who can help them with a short sale of their home, or investors who are looking to buy investment properties.
