Your e-PRO for "Your Pocono Home" Turns Up The Technology For You - 01/20/11 12:41 PM
I am proud to announce my use of Constant Contact as the source for all my business related e-mail communications. Unlike regular e-mail from most internet providers such as AOL or Yahoo, Constant Contact allows me as a real estate professional to abide by the number one rule in real estate, which is CYA - cover your ass. Constant Contacts' safe-unsubscribe/opt-out link lets people who do not want communications to leave and the tracking software lets me know who they are. Constant Contact also allows me to know who clicks through to the information I provide, what they are clicking (0 comments)
Boy Was I Mistaken - Short Sales Still Rot! - 01/14/11 09:25 PM
I diligently worked with my client for over a year and a half to get a grand total of one offer on his home and then when I finally did, I though that this was going to go nice and smooth. Price was great only $19,000 of a greatly reduced list price, well within what the home is worth in this market. It started off great, they (Bank Of America) were very responsive and they weren't the problem (or so I thought). They gave a phony counter offer based on what THEY thought other interested parties (investors, mortgage insurer and God knows (1 comments)

Luxury Homes In The Poconos - 01/07/11 11:31 PM
Luxury homes may be the way of the future in terms of real estate here in the Poconos. With many people nearing retirement or are looking for the perfect golf or ski home, the comforts of newer, luxurious features are very appealing and in the Poconos, are more reasonably priced than major metropolitan areas. Being less than 2 hours from NYC and Philadelphia, your "getaway" may just turn into a little longer stay (How about permanent?). As a Realtor who not only built his luxury home with Toll Brothers at The Estates at Great Bear, I have toured and visited with all (2 comments)
What do you mean 'my electrical box needs a tune-up?' - 01/07/11 11:09 AM
I always recommend my buyers to call in an electrician to check the fitness of the electrical system and do repairs/upgrades where/when necessary. This holds true for most homes but especially older homes. Wiring and metal are subject to the elements and time and could become a fire hazard. Via Ray Wilson - NYS Licensed Inspector (Meticulous Home Inspection Corporation): Very often I see loose wiring connections in service panels in the homes I inspect. The screws that hold the wire in the breaker tend to loosen over the years due to expansion and contraction when voltage passes through the wire, The steel screw (3 comments)

Short Sale Negotiations With Bank Of America/Equator Are Moving Along Nicely - 01/06/11 01:22 PM
I recently closed with a buyer on a Bank of America short sale in less than 3 months and are moving well with my seller only one month in. This is a sharp contrast to last year when the reports were short sales taking 6 months or more and then deals falling apart at the closing table. I know that this may not be reflective of other banks and/or transactions and each situation is different, but I have to report that I am having decent experiences working on these deals recently.

Am I Busy? You Bet. Why? Because I Work! - 01/06/11 11:44 AM
I always say the proof is in the pudding so when you have listed 4 properties since the new year, plus have mailed out 2 home buyer guides, e-mailed 2 rental home links and have a seller pending, things are getting better but there are those who sit and twittle their thumbs and wait for the phone to ring instead of making it happen. Right now it is time to get competitively priced, sellable listings and get them in the public eye. This can be a big year but it is up to YOU! (3 comments)
The Realtor Reviews...New York City Edition - Ellen's Stardust Diner (Broadway and 51st) Manhattan, NYC - 01/05/11 01:04 PM
There are places where you can have dinner and there are places that are experiences that you will talk about and want to revisit again. The dining experience I am referring to is Ellen's Stardust Diner located on the corner of Broadway and 51st in Manhattan. The classic 50's style diner comes to life with top notch singing waiters and waitresses who sing everything from classic show tunes and hits from yesteryear to today's pop hits. This is true Broadway talent performing for you while you enjoy a fanastic meal. From classic shakes with creative twists, to freshly baked dishes (0 comments)
The Realtor Reviews...New Jersey Edition - The River Palm Terrace, Fair Lawn, Edgewater, Mahwah, NJ - 01/05/11 01:24 AM
Ok, let me begin by saying I am a "steak snob". I had acquired a taste for the good life once I met my future wife and I never looked back. And the good life means dry-aged steak (the only way to eat meat in my opinion). You might as well downgrade to hamburger if you cant get the best steak in the world (also my opinion). Therefore I am always happy when I can satisfy my carnivorous pleasures at the River Palm Terrace. With locations in Edgewater, Fair Lawn and Mahwah, you can be assured that you are visiting (2 comments)
