devon: The Beginning of Devon and The Devon Inn - 02/23/18 02:23 PM
In January our business association, The Berwyn Devon Business and Professional Association hosted Michael Morrison, President of The King of Prussia Historical Society who gave a wonderful presentation about the beginning of the town of Devon and the History of the Devon Inn. This short clip gives an overview of the reason why Devon was formed and how the Inn came to be.
I always find it fascinating how a town or an area gets developed the way it does. There is so much history in our area with the Paoli Massacre, Valley Forge National Park where the Continental Army sheltered from … (5 comments)

devon: Some days things just don't align! - 02/16/18 10:51 AM
The past few weeks I have had issues with my back, and one of my hips. I have spent some time visiting my chiropractor. As we get things aligned, something else seems to slide out.
This morning I was in a lot of pain as I went to work out and realized, using the elliptical was not going to happen, so stepped over to the treadmill and chose some low settings I thought I would be able to complete. Ironically I was listening to an interview with a practitioner of movement. I need to study that a little more.
Well after a shower, … (30 comments)

devon: Is it good enough? - 02/15/18 09:23 AM
First impressions count, this is true especially when marketing your Tredyffrin Easttown home for sale. But more than this is also the need for exposure not just in numbers but in reaching the right audience. Today, many of the buyers are looking for video, not slide shows of homes.
When I first began to venture into using video and being bold enough to step out from behind the camera to in front I was very critical. Critical of myself, my ums and errs, stumbles etc. Much of what I read online encouraged you to press on, to not wait to be perfect, … (24 comments)

devon: In January we raised $200! - 01/30/18 08:42 AM
One of our aims this year is to make a donation of $100 with each home sale to Surrey Services for Seniors. So in January we raised $200.
We obviously want to raise much more than that during 2018. So we want to encourage you to list your home with us this year, there is a significant lack of inventory in our area and plenty of home buyers looking for homes. Many of those currently on the market have been on for longer than 100 days and buyers are waiting patiently for home owners to list.
Likewise, if you are looking for a home, … (12 comments)

devon: What is your why for keeping bees? - 01/25/18 01:48 PM
Last year I struck up a conversation with Paul Dangel a local beekeeper. This is the first video in a series on the three W's of beekeeping. Why keep bees? Who should and shouldn't keep bees? Where can you keep bees?
We spent a fascinating time filming this today, and in this first video you get a quick glimpse of our cat Max who decided to put in an appearance. I split this up into different segments to keep them as short as possible but we covered lots of related topics. 
We could have talked for hours and I am looking forward to … (10 comments)

devon: Where can you get a 2 course lunch for $4.00 in TE? - 01/10/18 12:18 PM
Where can you get a 2 course lunch for $4.00 in Tredyffrin Easttown?
Yesterday, I went with a friend to Surrey Services for Seniors for lunch. My friend lost his wife over a year ago and I have been telling him for a while to stop by and have lunch at Surrey.
Yesterday he had an appointment that got cancelled and called to see if I was available and if I wanted to join him for lunch. With the bad weather we have been having I thought a warm lunch would be a great choice, so I picked him up and we stopped off … (11 comments)

devon: Devon Horse Show brings some BIG visitors to town - 05/26/17 07:00 AM
The Devon Horse Show is in town and has brought some BIG visitors to town.
 
Seen on the streets around the horse show were these BIG guys:
 A friend who lives near the horse show grounds caught them walking up the street between 8 and 9 am, out for a little exercise but the video will not post at the moment. Every two years the Budweiser Clydesdales participate in the show and you can stop by the tent where they are stabled. I did that a couple of years ago and was amazed at just how big these horses are. I know they … (8 comments)

devon: New Restaurant - Dandan - 05/16/17 05:07 PM
New Tredyffrin Easttown Restaurant opens in Devon
Dandan has just opened in the space where Ellas used to be in Devon Square. This restaurant a sister to their Rittenhouse Square location has been opened by Devon natives Kevin and Cat Huang,  in just the last week. For a Tuesday night with no grand opening announced it was busy and Cat told us that at the weekend they had over a hundred people. The space is a great location with a bar and doors in the main area that slide open so on an evening like tonight with temperatures in the 70's it was … (19 comments)

devon: Sunday is a great day to walk - 05/14/17 06:57 PM
Sunday is a great day for a walk
Yesterday, Saturday, it rained all day. Today the weather started off cool but dry, so I decided to go to my favorite place and go for a walk. Those living in Tredyffrin Easttown have Valley Forge National Park just a few minutes away. There is a wonderful circuit you can walk, goes up and down and it is about 5.5 to 6 miles long. I walk pretty briskly so it took me about 1 1/2 hours. There were lots of people out walking and running today. One Mom and her daughter were running I … (15 comments)

Tredyffrin Easttown - Another reason for living here
There are multiple studies on how exposure to languages at a young age helps child development and the learning of multiple languages as children age. The more natural the teaching method the better.

Jenkins Arboretum
There are those places you drive past often without realizing what you are missing until you stop and visit. Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens is one of those places in Tredyffrin Township. A small gem hidden away off Berwyn Baptist Road and trickling down the hillside to Devon State Road. Sometimes when the day is busy and I need a moment I will stop off here.
Entrance is free. Yes, no charge for this wonderful attraction, which if you have young children will easily tire them out and give you some rest when they fall asleep, after making their way back up the … (8 comments)

devon: My quickest settlement - 10/28/16 12:20 AM
Today I am attending my quickest settlement, a closing on an Old Forge Crossing condo with an investor client I have. He bought several one bedroom condos a few years ago in a development where I have helped clients both buy and sell. He came to me because he wanted to see some properties and realized I had posted several blogs on the development and also my name comes up as the first Realtor on Google for this development.
 
Prices are not high for our area, but Old Forge Crossing is a wonderful place to live, it is well managed, having a CAI accreditation … (4 comments)
