Busy Weekend May 2 & 3, 2009, in Milton, Delaware - 04/30/09 03:33 PM
Saturday May 2, 2009, is the ANNUAL MILTON DELAWARE YARD SALE. You will find everything from quality antiques to garden items, children's toys, books and more. It's one of the best yard sales and everyone I know in town has been getting ready all week long.
We usually participate, but this year I will be working with real estate clients who are looking to move to Milton. It's a great town in which to live and this is a wonderful time of year to come and see for yourself. Sunday, May 3, 2009 - FIRST SUNDAY - TOWN-WIDE OPEN HOUSE - 12 (0 comments)
Do you show FSBOs? And HOW! I mean - HOW? - 04/23/09 01:23 PM
I was just following and commenting on the excellent discussion about Dual Agency as a result of a featured Blog by Connie Goodrich from Keller Williams in McKinney, Texas, and it got me thinking about another aspect of this challenging time in real estate - FSBOs. In the past, I was against showing a FSBO. The process of calling a Seller and inquiring whether they would be willing to pay a commission if I produced a willing and able Buyer was not comfortable. It made me feel like I was a child again asking my Father for a raise in my (3 comments)

It must be the Agent's Fault! - 04/18/09 10:51 AM
It's not always better being first, even in Delaware - the First State! As a Realtor the past few years, being the first listing agent in a declining real estate market has been a challenge at best. There are homes on the market today, listed with the second or even third listing agent that were listed originally two or even three years ago with another agent. Why aren't they selling? Could it be the market? Or perhaps - They bought at the peak of the market and then decided to sell in the worst real estate market in our lifetime? Despite that, they don't think (0 comments)
AARP reports Age-Restricted Housing becoming Ageless! - 04/14/09 01:02 PM
In the latest AARP Bulletin, the headline "Age-Restricted Housing Becomes Ageless" caught my eye. Just the other day I was talking with the Community Sales Manager at one of Coastal Delaware's Active Adult Communities and predicted this very thing. I cited the halted development of two new active adult communities in the midst of this housing market reset. Del Webb had planned to build a Coastal Club a few miles west of Lewes, Delaware, and Central Parke at Milford Ponds was due to hold its Grand Opening last year. Both developments were delayed and still show no signs of site work (1 comments)
Charity Case will be singing at the Milton Theatre on April 4th - 04/03/09 06:42 AM
This was the headline in our local paper and then I looked at the photo. It looked like Amy Felker, the owner of The Lewes Bake Shoppe and Notting Hill Roastery on Second Street in Lewes. It's right down the street from my office and I must get lunch from Amy at least twice a week. Now I find out she can SING! Not only that, she is teamed up with Stuart Vining, a local singer, songwriter and guitarist who we have seen in other very popular groups with the Boomer crowd - Big Hat No Cattle and Vinyl Shockley and (2 comments)
