milton ma real estate: Home Buying - Survivor Style - 05/17/11 05:30 AM
Home Buying - Survivor Style
Canton MA's most recent claim to fame is that we are the hometown to "Boston Rob" - winner of the most recent Survivor - Redemption Island. I admit to not being a big Survivor watcher but we all take a little pride when one of our own wins big. From all accounts, Rob is a master of the game & knows what it takes to win the game - some well chosen alliances, some immunity and strategy.
Buyers can use the same skills to buy a home - Survivor style.
Alliances: Your most important alliance is to … (8 comments)

milton ma real estate: Is Busy Always a Good Thing? - 05/03/11 01:59 AM
Is Busy Always A Good Thing?
Spring is in the air, the buyers are out and I have been busy.  Busy with existing customers and new customers.  And of course, busy blogging and writing and networking and marketing.  That's a good thing, right? 
Last Saturday I was with some buyers for a showing.  We were supposed to see the property on Friday but my clients' daughter had a minor accident at day care so they had to cut our tour short to go take her to the doctor.  I called to reschedule for Saturday.  The agent told me she could not … (10 comments)

milton ma real estate: The Market is Hopping - Another Reason to have a Buyers Agent - 04/27/11 01:22 PM
The Market is Hopping - Another Reason to have a Buyers Agent
While the real estate market has not completely recovered, it certainly is a busy real estate market in Canton MA, Milton MA and surrounding towns.  I have seen a number of multiple offer situations in recent weeks.  This is but one of many reasons why buyers should have their own, independent representation.
Buyers need negotiation stratgey assistance in a busy market.  An experienced agent has insight as to how these situations work, which is different than in a regular offer situation.  Buyers certainly want to put their best offer … (6 comments)

First a Spotlight Article, Now a Feature Column!
Some of my readers may remember that a little while back, I had been featured in the In the Spotlight segment of our local Patch site.  For those who do not know, Patch.com is a hyper-local news site featuring sites in cities and towns all over the country.  It is an interactive site where you can list your business, post announcements and events and comments on the stories that affect your town.  I was a fan from the first day that they launched Patch in Canton MA. Most of the Patch sites are … (8 comments)

In the News: My Fifteen Minutes of Fame
They say that everyone has their fifteen minutes of fame.  Well, I think I have had mine as I was recently featured by a local media outlet.  Our local Patch site did a story about me for their In the Spotlight segment.  This segment features local members of the community. I was honored that they thought to ask me.  
For those of you who are not familiar with Patch, it is a hyper-local online news site.  They have sites located all over the country.  You can find out if there is one in … (44 comments)

milton ma real estate: I Will Value Your Time, Will You Value Mine? - 03/09/11 10:28 AM
I Will Value Your Time, Will You Value Mine?
Everyone's time is valuable these days.  It seems that we are busier than ever.  As agents, of course our time is valuable - time is money.  Our clients time is valuable too.  They lead busy lives working, raising their families, volunteering and more. 
So, this is my pledge to my clients and to the other agents & professionals with whom I interact:  I will value your time.
I will work around my clients' busy schedues and schedule showings when it is convenient for them.  I will respond to inquiries quickly so that … (15 comments)

It is the People - Not the Name that Make a Difference
I was meeting some buyers to see some homes on the real estate market in Milton MA.  There were a few homes they wanted to see and as luck would have it, they all had Open Houses scheduled.  I arrived at the first one a little bit ahead of my buyers.  I signed in, introduced myself to the listing agent & took a look around.  He then asked me which agency I was with - and I informed him that I was with Buyers Brokers Only from neighboring Canton MA.  … (14 comments)

milton ma real estate: Milton MA Real Estate - 02/07/11 11:47 PM
Milton MA Real Estate
Milton is located next door to Canton and is the town where I grew up. Like Canton, it has a small-town feel but is easily accessible to Boston, with either the historic Red Line Trolley or various bus routes to take you to the subway into Boston.
Milton has the distinction of having recently been named as one of the top places in the country to live in Money Magazine and is home to the current Governor of Massachusetts. With an excellent school system, one of Milton's schools features a French Immersion program. This is an elementary … (7 comments)
