lesley lambert: Western Massachusetts: Why are you Thankful to live here? - 11/19/09 08:38 AM
I make it no secret that I am a huge fan of Western Massachusetts.  I have lived here my entire life and have no plans on leaving.  My work as a REALTOR takes me all over the Pioneer Valley and there are so many beautiful and wonderful places and things to do here!
I am grateful for a number of reasons, including:
#1- the changing beauty.  I love the seasons here and how pretty is is in different ways at different times of year.
#2- the proximity.  I love that I can get to Boston in two hours or New York … (5 comments)

1. Find the right representativeThe experience and knowledge of a dedicated real estate professional can be priceless. A good Realtor® forms a powerful team with his or her clients that makes it possible for them to have a smooth, successful, stress-free sale.
2. Determine your needs/wants for the sale and for your new homeSelling your primary residence can be tricky because you have to simultaneously be thinking about where you would like to buy. First weigh your priorities – selling price is certainly important, but having a quick and efficient sale can often be worth accepting a slightly lower offer. … (1 comments)

lesley lambert: What Consumers Want in their Real Estate Agent - 08/27/09 10:09 AM
This week I posed this question on my Facebook page:
What do you look for in your REALTOR? Be specific: internet savvy, traditional advertising, contact, etc

I got some excellent answers and they seemed to follow a very common thread.  I found it interesting that many of us agents spend a lot of time trying to brand ourselves as being the neighborhood expert, internet specialist, new construction specialist, etc., yet most people answering my question never mentioned a specialty as being important.
Christine Pilch (@christinepilch) said she wants Honesty and integrity.

lesley lambert: So Many Heads in the Sand: Why Foreclosures Happen. - 07/30/09 11:27 AM

My newest article is up at Agent Genius Magazine where I am a featured writer on the topic of homeowners in distress.  I find that many agents fail to empathize properly with homeowners going through a troubled time and worse than that: fail to HELP.
Take a look at my article which explains my thoughts as to the reasons for foreclosures and how I think each of us can help many people avoid the worst. 
We are in a unique position to stop foreclosure before it happens if we are informed, concerned and involved!

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)

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)
