  Here in the Metropolitan area of NYC hiring a buyer's agent is way behind the rest of the Country.  I am asked all the time why would a buyer want to hire a buyer's agent.  The concept is new and so most buyers would actually like to drift around as customers.  You did notice that word drift, r...
  Tomorrow is Easter and I just saw a post about Peter Cottontail. The question was raised if we knew who Peter Cottontail was.  Oh how the memories came flooding back.  As Sophia use to say "picture this" I was a single Mom living in an apartment in the Bronx.  I had two little boys aged four an...
  As a Broker/Owner I like to advise my Agents about a host of things.  Don't most Brokers?  I hate to see them spend unnecessary money on self marketing if there is a more affordable or better way to get their name out there. Because they have to do continuing education I always hope they will t...

  Today is the first day of Spring.  We know the Spring market has been in full swing since the middle of January and so maybe the calendar is not always in sync with reality. The calendar is saying Spring but the reality of the weather here in New York speaks only of Winter.  Pretty much the gen...

  The times they are a changing, the market it is a changing.  Actually the market is always changing, nothing really stays the same.  It is either a buyers market or a sellers market. When I came into Real Estate a long long time ago it was a buyers market.  We had up time and you could wait for...
  The Irish have a million blessings but this is my favorite one May those that love us love us. May those wo don't love us may God turn their hearts and if God cannot turn their hearts may he turn their ankles so that we may know them by their limping
