I admit to having a real love of the river towns.  Don’t get me wrong – I love the Sound Shore area as well, but there is a certain wildness and weathered beauty to the western portion of the county.  I was on the Hudson River walk near dusk on a stormy night – or really a pre-stormy night last w...
It was a cruel twist of irony that this shutterbug was trapped indoors during the glorious weather last week taking her real estate CE classes.  Though the classes were terrific, weather-wise this would have been a better week to be indoors!   But I was able to take advantage of one of my lunch p...

That’s right -  I’m talking about the MLS listing.   Its amazing when you actually think about it – because sellers seem to blissfully unaware of how their homes are represented on the MLS.  During listing presentations, most agents wax eloquent about how they are going to “market” your home.  Fr...
  Carlson’s Floral & Gift on 625 Dobbs Ferry Rd. in White Plains is always an uplifting place to visit at any time of year, but with spring in the air and flowers blooming everywhere, it is particularly inspiring.  There is plenty to choose from for your Easter or Passover celebration.  This week...
