lesley lambert: Swimming Upstream - 05/25/09 08:51 PM
Today I had my first experience at the fish elevator at the Holyoke Dam in Holyoke, MA.
I have lived in Western MA my whole life and somehow missed out on this curiosity until today. 
At the Hadley Falls in Holyoke Ma the annual migration of anadromous fish is no small affair. A visit to the  website explains the technical aspects.
I stood watching the fish through the observation windows with my daughters and I listened to my guide and date explain to us that these fish are swimming up the river to mate and then die.   This brutal trip takes … (3 comments)

lesley lambert: I Love First Time HomeBuyers! - 05/20/09 07:05 PM
 
In my over 20 year career the one client that has always been a favorite is the first time homebuyer.
What isn't to love about the flush of excitement as a young adult sheds the protection of parents, landlords or school and makes the decision to strike out on their own?  Their energy is contagious and they are open to education and guidance.
These fledgling buyers almost always do everything on time and as you requested because they don't have the bad habits of more "experienced" buyers. 
I am working with a series of first time homebuyers lately, most of … (5 comments)

lesley lambert: Why My Mother is the Most Amazing Woman - 05/10/09 06:49 PM
Meet my mom, Shelley Weber.  I know you probably think your mom is the most amazing mom, but my mom is more than just that: she is the most amazing woman I know.

 
My mom has been at turns: a nurse, go-go dancer, sister, best friend, wife, business woman, bridal gown saleswoman, x-ray technician, meditation specialist, guitar player and singer, aunt, militant mom, poet, photographer, artist, cheerleader (for my sister and I) and most of all, my mentor and role model.
In every situation my mom would bring positive thoughts, care and concern and proactive energy.  She taught me … (3 comments)

lesley lambert: Western Massachusetts: You're Hot Then You're Cold! A REALTOR'S Musings on a Strange Love. - 05/05/09 01:09 PM
April 28, 2009, Westfield, MA...no one knows how to dress today.  It is 95 degrees and everyone is complaining about it being too hot, too soon.  The daffodils and tulips are wilted in protest and I didn't unpack my summer clothes yet...what happened to spring?
May 5th, 2009, Westfield, MA...I sit in my office shivering.  I unpacked the summer clothes and now I am ready to go unpack the sweaters!  Again I  sit wondering where did Spring go?  It is raining, which isn't so odd, but it is CCCCCoold today.  Isn't it supposed to be warm in May?
Well, after living … (6 comments)

MONDAY MANIA MOMMY MADNESS!
Started the day working from home and mentioned on twitter that I had to take my "cherubs" with me on a house showing.  The responses that I got varied from "I will pray for you" to "use a carrot and not a stick".  All helpful, but most of these people have only ever seen pictures of my girls...

They LOOK so … (13 comments)

lesley lambert: How Much Difference Will 1% Make in My Mortgage Payment? - 04/18/09 12:01 AM
It is no news to you that mortgage interest rates are terrific right now.  I have heard a lot of speculation from potential buyers that maybe they should wait because they might get lower.  The opinion of many professionals is quite the opposite, however. 
These low rates are historic and not bound to last for too long.  The most likely change is that the rates will increase, not decrease, especially if the market improves. 
With the convergence of terrific rates, low home prices and the first time homebuyer tax credit: now may be the best time in history to buy a … (1 comments)

lesley lambert: Baby Chicks Hatched at Pre-School! - 04/08/09 09:31 AM
My 4 year old daughter goes to pre-school at the Westfield, MA YMCA.  Her teacher Miss Sarah and one of the moms from the class teamed up to hatch chicken eggs in an incubator in the classroom.
Some time had gone by and there was concern that none of the eggs would hatch.  Yesterday we arrived at school to find several had, in fact, hatched.  Today we arrived to no less than 25 baby chicks!
Take a peek at this adorable video for a quick Spring smile and Happy Easter and Passover!

lesley lambert: First Time Buyer TAX CREDIT Explained - 04/03/09 09:41 AM
Are you a first time homebuyer who is confused about the tax credit changes?  Perhaps you are considering becoming a first time homebuyer and you want to understand how the first time home buyer tax credit will help you? Let me help to explain it to you...
There are a few key items that I think are important:
#1- The tax credit is increased by $500 since 2008 and does not require repayment as the old credit does.
#2- Any first time home buyer is eligible. A person is considered a first time buyer if he/she has not had any ownership … (0 comments)

The first thing I learned at Podcamp was the #1 google search is for sex and the second is for Facebook.  Now that I have your attention, let me tell you about my first PodCamp Experience.
Being a PodCamp Virgin, I had no expectations, in fact, no real understanding of what I had signed up for.  I knew that a great friend @HeyAmaretto (on twitter) was going and I really wanted to meet her IRL and I knew that other local twitterers were excited about this event...so I decided to go.

From the moment I arrived at PodCamp WesternMA I … (6 comments)

I am very excited to be attending PodCamp in Holyoke, MA this Saturday, March 28th.   What in the world is a PodCamp and why would I want to go you ask?  Well...

lesley lambert: Real Estate 5th Most Stressful Job? Motherhood: The Hardest Job of ALL - 02/25/09 01:25 PM
Before I was a mom I remember thinking that having children would be so special because the love between a mother and a child is the most amazing thing in the world.  I was right, but I didn't understand a few very important line items. 
Before I was a mom I thought that raising children was simply a a matter of loving them enough.  Once again, I missed something.
Before I was a mom I thought that I was smart, funny, educated, energetic and brave.  WRONG, WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.
As a compass, Motherhood is altogether humbling.
