wayne: Hakata Ramen and Sushi Wayne PA have you tried it yet? - 01/18/19 08:55 AM
Last night we visited Hakata Ramen and Sushi in the Gateway Shopping Plaza in Tredyffrin Easttown. Here is what we thought.
This is a new restaurant, locally owned and the first Ramen restaurant in Tredyffrin Easttown. It is a BYOB, with pretty modern decor although there were some interesting design choices which jarred with the overall design. For example some old window frames with fake flowers which did not seem to agree with the mural on the wall by the open kitchen. Tables and chairs were not great quality, and one booth had you looking at the back of another bench. 
How was … (12 comments)

wayne: 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)

wayne: Friday morning excursion - 09/29/17 12:05 PM
We decided to take a quick morning excursion to Chanticleer Gardens in Radnor. It is a short drive from our home in Tredyffrin Township and always a delight to enjoy. These gardens are very natural, acorns sit in the beds, flowers droop as they age, it is not like Longwood where everything is pristine all the time, this is a real garden like ours.
Every time we go we feel inspired and encouraged. We get ideas and feel we can do this or that we have seen.
Here is a view of the main house from the bottom of the garden...
This is a great idea, … (18 comments)

The Main Line Antiques Show, other events and Surrey Services for Seniors
As you know I manage an antique show for a local charity I support, Surrey Services for Seniors. Yesterday, I was asked to appear on Surrey Solutions a program they film for the local community television network in our township which gets shared with other neighboring community channels as well.

wayne: Tredyffrin Easttown home owners - We generated 11 offers! - 07/27/17 10:23 AM
Last week we began marketing a new Tredyffrin Easttown listing. Yesterday we presented our seller with 11 offers.
What did we do to generate 11 offers?
Firstly we realized the home required work and was going to be sold "As is" with the seller unable to do any repairs. The home was not going to be staged and had been vacant for a while but we felt that honesty was the best policy.
I took photos, and filmed a walk through video, highlighting the salient points. Our description let everyone know the home required work but underneath had good bones.
We discussed who the likely … (5 comments)

wayne: So you want to live in Wayne - 06/29/17 11:16 AM
So you want to live in Wayne PA. 
Wayne is a popular place for those moving to want to live, it is a lovely town with its own Art Deco Cinema and sidewalks to stroll.
Bur living in Wayne without specifying where can have you living in any one of three different counties, Montgomery, Delaware or Chester, each has very different tax rates. Secondly, you can end up in one of three different townships Tredyffrin, Radnor, or Upper Merion Township. And hence one of three different school systems if you are going to have your children attend public school, Tredyffrin Easttown, Radnor or … (12 comments)

Wayne real estate market report
Wayne postal code covers lots of areas outside of Wayne itself, including areas of Upper Merion, Tredyffrin and even Chesterbrook.

Attached home sales, town homes and twins, actually dropped year over year whilst all the other areas increased. Condo sales increased by 50% and detached homes doubled year over year.
These increases help to explain the big jump in median sales price. As the … (9 comments)

wayne: More Victorian Highlights - 03/28/17 01:37 PM
All along the Main Line in Devon and Wayne particularly we find Victorian homes. As stated in my post Not All Victorians are Alike there are many around the town of Wayne. On both sides of Route 30, Lancaster Avenue, in North and South Wayne we find Victorian homes, on Midland, N. and S. Wayne Avenues, all the tree named streets in N. Wayne and many others.
These Victorians do have a similar look, but as you go through them you notice certain features which make this or that one stand out. Sometimes as in our last post it was the openess and … (14 comments)

Tredyffrin Easttown - Another reason for living here

We LOVE gardens and so I am Thankful for Chanticleer.
Living on the Main Line people think there is not much green around us, but that is far from the truth. I shared how I am Thankful for Valley Forge National Park, But, Chanticleer is a wonderful garden open during the late Spring through the Summer season. It was a private estate, but now in trust and has wonderful natural gardens on the rolling hills of the estate. Friday evenings in the summer you can bring a picnic and the place is packed, and although you may find it hard to find a … (4 comments)
