havertown realtor: (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) Social Media in Real Estate - 03/02/11 04:09 PM
If you have to take a class to use Social Media you don't get Social Media.  I recently had my chops busted by our "Social Media" guru for our company.  The funny part is I wasn't even there to get my chops busted.  That's what makes it great!  My office is one of 18 offices in the Century 21 Alliance company.  We have a training center for all 18 offices that is run by our "guru", who is also one of the brokers.  To give her credit she has embraced social media for the business which I think is important but … (14 comments)

havertown realtor: 344 Congress Ave. An Historical Treasure in Lansdowne! - 02/10/11 12:19 AM
Have a new listing in the Drexel Plaza section of Upper Darby.  A home like this is why I got into the business.  Having come from a backround of building this I admire and appreciate all the many unique architectural and structural gems.  Solidly built with stone arch features, terra cotta roof, Vermont slate patios, and a Juliet style balcony this home just exudes charachter.  During prohibition the basement was set up as a Speakeasy!  Random with Pine and Peg floors on the first floor.  Half round cased openings!  Curved stairwell opening.  Tasteful rod iron rails.  All of this with awesome … (1 comments)

havertown realtor: The Correction Continues......Slowly. - 07/28/10 11:21 AM
      So spring is over, the summer is here and the inventory is through the roof.  Pricing?   Not a clue anymore.       This "buyers" market is maddening in the fact that there are no buyers.  Now you may say, "That's what makes a buyers market.", lots of sellers with minimal buyer's gives the buyers control over the market.  Well they have control but they're so few and far between that it seems that they are not around.  I have fought for every sale this month and with a buyer and a seller I put two homes … (1 comments)

havertown realtor: Show Me The Buyers! - 07/12/10 01:02 AM

     I hate to say it, but,  "Here comes another Real Estate Slump!"        I know, I know, be positive, put a good spin on it and all will come around.  As I mentioned before in my analysis of the recently ended tax credit we have not increased buyers but hurried some of them up.  Mortgage rates are still incredibly low and there is plenty of inventory so why don't we see a lot of sales.  The long and short of it is there aren't as many qualified buyers.  Our feeding frenzy of consumerism over the last decade … (5 comments)

havertown realtor: Tax Credit Hindsight! - 07/05/10 07:55 AM
Well the tax credit is now over for officially two months, the part where you actually enter into an agreement.  Soooooo? 
Did it increase buyers?
Did it correct the housing market?
Did it do what it was supposed to?
I know April was a feeding frenzy compared to the last year and a half.  I do believe that the people that bought homes that month were going to buy a home anyway.  I think we did a good job of sucking buyers out of the month of May and most of June.  Where May is a normally … (1 comments)

havertown realtor: Easter Flowers in Havertown - 04/04/10 06:49 AM
Was running last minute errands in Havertown today for Easter and was on my way home when I drove by 1000 Weller, which is at the corner of Manoa.  On the most beautiful Easter I could remember in a decade.  On this corner the family who lives there sells beautiful Tulips, Roses, Lilies, etc.  Such a pretty scene I had to stop and buy the tall purple tulips that caught my eye.

Here are the ones I took home!!!!

havertown realtor: Great Photographer in Havertown - 03/28/10 02:48 PM
Recently had my photo redone for business.  First time in five years.  I like to think that I haven't changed that much in that time but....... The last time I had a shot done was at the company Christmas party.  The photographer that did our yearly group shot hung out after wards and did agent pictures for $25.00.  Pretty good picture but not great.  Up until that point I had used a photo that I took myself in my living room. A while back I met a local photographer, Erinn Aloi, owner of "a fresh focus photography".  She looked at my … (1 comments)

havertown realtor: When in Havertown, use a Havertonian, or Find a Realtor "really" in Havertown - 03/25/10 10:47 AM
We actually don't call ourselves Havertonians but I thought that would make a catchy title, Rome/Romans, you know....Anyway.....I am writing this blog because in my Internet research this morning I came across a website called HomeGain. When I searched Havertown Realtor on Google.  It was high up in the results page so I checked it out.  Of course it had a "find a Realtor" link and of course I clicked on it.  It asked for a minimum of my name, which I entered as Ima Test, and my email.  In the comments section I asked that I receive only agents from … (4 comments)
