real estate: Recent humidity - 07/07/16 11:19 AM
  If you've been anywhere near Connecticut this week.. 
You've probably been suffering just as much as me. And for your information, I live in the portion of the country that has the highest humidity level. Humidity has hit its all-time high in the last few days and sometimes it makes me question why I chose to live in the northeast.  But on another note, a lot of homeowners moving from places far from CT often ask how it is possible to even enjoy the outdoors with this outrageous humidity!  Through my reading, i've learned a few ways to keep cool outdoors during … (3 comments)

real estate: Getting down to business - 06/06/16 10:41 AM
  As a real estate agent I find it necessary sometimes to get a little hands-on...
It appears in this picture that I'm simply posing on a ladder making it look like I'm working, but unfortunately it's quite difficult to get an action shot of yourself when you're the one taking the picture;  I swear I am being productive.   Part of what I pride myself in is the satisfaction of my clients, and sometimes that calls for a little do-it-yourself.  It's all in a day's work and being hands-on has never wronged me in the past!  Number one tip for any real … (3 comments)

 Memorial day is a day to remember the veterans who fought for our country, while continuing to honor the ones who are still fighting.  Without losing sight of that, I'd like to share one of my favorite aspects of Memorial day as we gather with family to eat and enjoy each other's company while everyone may not be with us.  Let's be honest, it's not memorial day without the grill!  Cut up some fresh vegetables, make a bunch of potato salad, and take a look at these 29 'Awesome Ways to Grill Steak'.  Have a happy and safe  Memorial Day!

 April showers bring may flowers right?...They also bring fresh vegetables!  Growing your own veggies is the best way to have a beautiful garden that actually benefits you and your family!

1.  Feed the soil before you feed the plants. Better soil means healthier plants. Dig up the soil with a shovel and break it up.  Spread a 2- to 4-inch layer of organic … (3 comments)
