Companies that are most responsive have a distinct competitive advantage, also getting a testimonial from a client or statement describing a positive experience or belief about you, your organization, your products and services, or your approach to doing business is a great way of promoting you as a customer service professional.

This blog is dedicated to the Rockland County, NY. Real Estate Market. My Real Estate Blog provides fresh perspective on our market activity. Real Estate is not just about selling or buying properties; it is about communities, people and families. I go above and beyond what is traditionally expected of a REALTOR. I am your source to Rockland County NY Real Estate information.
Traditionally, REALTORS were always the people to ask about what was happening in a particular community, since REALTORS are intimately involved in the places they live and work. I love our communities I love the villages, the towns, the schools, the restaurants, the parks, the people! And I know what's going on, because I am connected to the people and places in the communities I serve. So I would like to be your resource for real estate and community information. I will be posting my own analysis of the local real estate market, based on my expertise and experience in these markets, and I'll also be posting information and analysis of local events and happenings.
Remember: The relationship between a home buyer or seller and their Realtor is based on trust, shared goals and understanding. I strive to continually improve and to do this I listen and take the needs and wants into consideration.
