The parade will travel through Huguenot Street to North Avenue, Pelham Road and into the Hudson Park for a special waterfront ceremony honoring those heroes lost at sea.

We do not get paid for Feedback..... - 05/28/11 07:05 PM
I have to admit that when I promise to offer forth reports at that listing presentation table, and promise and offer my marketing plan.. I follow through.. I pride myself on it... I might not be giving you good news, news you wish to hear, but it will be up to-date market analysis, and written from the heart, We are a partnership, and if I cannot be honest with you in representing you on one of your most precious commodities (apart from family) - your home... then what good am I?... I have to be honest. My company sends out an email request for feedback... (22 comments)

Oh, how I love his writing.... Would never have bought the book by the title... no appeal there... just just like his raw, incredibly insightful writing, Mr. Burke is able to put you into the most depraved minds with such artistic talent and wonderful prose that you are unable to put down his books... This, to me, was sort of like an insider's view of what happened - as it happened - during the awful Hurricane Katrina storm of 2005.... how the government mismanaged, failed the people there, the looting by both law and public, and how the local residents had (0 comments)
I like this writer.... this book was a touch different than his usual books. It centers upon a Behaviorist who has lost her position with the Las Vegas Police Force by being drunk on the job (after losing husband), and who continues to be drug dependent as the book progresses with mind numbing medicines of all kinds.... Since I don't believe in taking drugs, it was a reach for me to sympathize with the heroine to some extent but still, good, fast reading. Obviously, she realizes that she functions better without the pills before the end of the book... and (0 comments)

The Seller's Pre-Inspection..... - 05/16/11 08:42 PM
I had a wonderful listing the other year.... I say wonderful, as I really loved the home, and the home-owners.... The house had so many great attributes, and the home-owners made it very easy to show... However, Some of the feedback led to sloping floors on the second floor, and those 'know-it-all- buyers said it was structural damage and would walk away... I suggested to the sellers that we have a pre-seller's inspection from an engineer. What is that? Well, for a fraction of the cost of a 'real inspection' (in this case $250 compared to $750 in my area) you can have a licensed inspector/engineer visit the (22 comments)

Book Review: Robert Crais "The Forgotten Man" - 05/15/11 09:50 AM
As I mentioned earlier, I just love this author... This book was published in 2005 so I am not reading in order but who cares? All good. This book centers around Joe Pike's friend and business partner, Elvis Cole, a private investigator, who receives a call from a detective claiming to have found a dying man in an alley.. whose last words were " I am looking for my son, Elvis Cole." Elvis never knew his father, never met him, never knew his name, and so he finds himself searching out the man's identity, trying to discover whether this man, whose body (6 comments)
I love this author, and I have only recently discovered him. As soon as I had the first novel, I ran to the library, and sought out as many as I could find! The book, "The First Rule" was published in 2010, and features Joe Pike, a super cool loner who is lethal, but loyal. One of his 'men' and entire family from the days he worked as a professional mercenary and contractor, is murdered, and Joe Pike sets out to find how it happened, why it happened, and to seek vengeance - of course. He finds himself involved (6 comments)

Book Review: David Baldacci's "Hell's Corner" - 05/14/11 08:23 AM
I am a little awestruck how the main character in this particular series, namely John Carr aka Oliver Stone, who went from being a seemingly homeless man, camped out in front of the White House to the country's most deadliest operative...... but that is the charm of Mr. Baldacci. He can take a few characters, and make it all into an enjoyable, action packed book. ... John Carr took revenge on a few people in the last book, and so in "Hell's Corner", it makes perfect sense for the now President to forgive him for those past transgressions if he takes out the (0 comments)
Robert Cox is well known in New Rochelle for his radio show.On Friday's at WVOX, and for being the editor of "The Talk of the Sound" blog site which reaches between 30-50,000 readers each month. His no-nonsense 'just the facts' approach have ruffled some feathers throughout the city, and yet more importantly, he has striven to make our great city even greater in being a vocal conscience. Through the growth and support of so many within New Rochelle, Mr. Cox (Bob to all) is now taking it one step further, and is running for the School Board (0 comments)
There is nothing more pleasing than to drive around the city in which you live and see beautiful trees in boom, azaleas with their bold colors, and when we have those beautiful blue skies, it makes you simply feel wonderful! Having just left a listing appointment also - was also cause for excitement!. Spring is great New Rochelle is GREAT! (6 comments)
Open Houses REALLY do work.... - 05/08/11 07:40 PM
I have had the good fortune to have sold 2 homes this year through open houses. Contracts signed on one, engineer's inspections performed on another.
I am having a listing appointment tomorrow... with someone whom I had met a few years ago at 3 different open houses... They were not ready to buy at the time, and I would keep seeing them at my different listings..When they contacted me last week, they stated that I was the only agent who followed up after an open house on behalf of the seller , and they never forgot that.... and so immediately (28 comments)

When people think of buying a home in the suburbs, not only are they contemplating perhaps a future family, ease of travel to and from the city, but sometimes, they are seeking a sense of community. What better way of encompassing that then to join a Homeowner's Association or perhaps initiating one. Paine Heights in New Rochelle's estate area has a Paine Heights Association, and Glenwood Lake has the Glenwood Lake Association. They publish a newsletter entitled "The Back Fence." It is an authoritative newsletter, full of good tips, news on how the association has a 'clean-up day' around the (16 comments)
