When constructing an article for your blog, if you've ever felt like you're writing in a vacuum, take heart and think again.  Once you hit submit to publish your post, it's off on a trajectory all its own.  I think we get so attached to what we write sometimes that it's hard to let go, fearing ou...

The part of me that loves to find new toys, my alter ego, constantly in search of a better way to share my love of Long Island and its real estate with those who may not have been here before, I think I've found the perfect partner.  This is my first test drive with it and I see so many applicati...
