Fall has arrived, and with the changing of the season, why not bring some fall atmosphere into your own home? Here are five ideas for giving your home a fall feel.

pocono real estate: A Fresh Coat of Paint - 07/19/15 02:23 PM
A Few Tips for your next interior painting project
 
Purchasing the paint
If you’re not fully committed to a color, start with just a quart, and use it to paint a foam board. You can then move the foam board around the room to see how it’ll react to varying levels of light from different angles.
Once you’ve settled on a color, you’ll need about one gallon of paint for every 400 square feet .
Prep
Clean the walls (and allow them to dry!) before you begin. Place drop cloths or old sheets on the floors rather than slippery plastic. Remove outlet covers and other obstacles, as … (5 comments)

pocono real estate: One Year later....Happier Than Ever - 07/05/15 10:04 AM
During one of the many festivities that I had the luxury to enjoy this past holiday weekend, my phone rang, it was an alert from one of my online lead sources.  Someone had inquired on one of my listings and I got a buyer lead.  That innocent little lead made me smile,  I quietly accepted my lead, sat back, wrote a quick email to the buyer and watched everyone around me enjoy the holiday celebrations.   At that moment I was reminded of my own personal growth as a Real Estate Agent.

pocono real estate: Less is more: How to improve your vocabulary - 07/01/15 06:44 AM
 It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the best ways to improve your vocabulary is by eliminating words, rather than adding new ones. There are many words we use every day that are either unnecessary or overused. By removing these words from your vocabulary you can become a better writer and conversationalist.Really and very: We use these two words all the time, but what do they really add? Instead of adding “really” or “very” in front of an adjective, think of a better adjective. Instead of it being “really hot” outside, say it’s “scorching.”
Amazing: If we say that just about everything is “amazing,” … (4 comments)

Spending time outside your home should be enjoyable. Here are a few tricks to maximize your outdoor enjoyment.

Eye Candy

The hot summer months can take a big toll on your utility bills if you’re not careful. Here are a few suggestions for staying cool while remaining energy-efficient.
