  Larchmont Condos & Cooperatives: Recently, I had two sales at the Stonecrest in Larchmont NY.   The Stonecrest is an upscale cooperative in the heart of the Larchmont P.O.   Larchmont NY has long been a popular destination for buyers of single family homes, but Larchmont is also a popular locat...

Last night I went to a speakeasy.  I had never really been to one before.   Jenifer Ross threw a real rag-time flapper party in celebration of the first anniversary of the Watercooler.  The Watercooler is a chic, hip office space for those who work independently but want an office to go to.   Its...

  When home buyers and home sellers in Westchester choose an agent, they often wind up taking a leap of faith – and dive in with the first person that seems  reasonably suitable.  With the sheer number of agents in the county (as well as in other parts of the country) this seems almost baffling. ...

Nothing expresses the serenity of the weekend like a picture of the sunset on a lovely night on the Hudson River.   This photo was taken fairly near Lighthouse Landing near the Sleepy Hollow border.  I just think this photo says long balmy  summer days and  some opportunity to dial down the tensi...

Many people think of White Plains mostly as a either a place to live or a place to go for fine dining and first-class shopping.  However, White Plains has  two populations.  A live-in population that is a bit less than 60,000 and  a much larger commuter population in the downtown area.  In truth ...

  A few weeks ago I took a couple of night shots of the Tappan Zee Bridge from Tarrytown NY.  The sky was foggy that night and the river was like glass    One evening about 10 days ago, I found myself  near the same location once again just as the sun was going down.  The conditions were differen...

For the last two days I’ve been on the road a great deal in part for real estate and in part for photography.  I keep having the creepy feeling that the same storm just keeps following me around.  Taunting me as a drive.  It always seems to be ready to unleash its fury just as I have to get out o...

  A few days ago I read a blog by JMac on Active Rain  that really hit home.  Integrity…maybe the missing link in real estate…for everyone.    The post described how trust was something that had to be earned on both sides of a real estate transaction.  An agent needs to trust their client just as...

I was able to snap this shot of the Marymount “dome” early this afternoon while driving around the Tarrytown Lakes.  The dome is something of a landmark for the area and although the college campus has changed hands twice, the original campus buildings remain.   Even though I pass by the building...

Curb appeal is not a trivial issue.  Buyers often decide within seconds whether they have any interest in your home at all, and be it rational or not, that’s the reality. Let’s face it, between photographing homes and selling them, I spend a great deal of time looking at homes.  I spend a great d...
