If you're 55 or over and you've been giving thought to moving out of your home on Long Island and into 55 and over housing, you're like many of your peers.  Sometimes, no matter how much you love the home you live in, the one you raised your family in, it's time for a change.  In the first scenar...

Happy Halloween to all the ghosts and goblins out there in search of treats on what appears to be a perfect fall day here on Long Island.  Many of the young and young at heart have their plans made, costumes bought, parties scheduled for this fun and spooktacular day.  They've hung their cobwebs...

Just a little while ago my phone rang.  On the other end was the voice of one of my favorite guys in the world.  My very special little man said, "grandma, I was thinking, it's been a long time since we had a date.  I think it's time for us to have another one."  Not only was it my best offer of...

It was not at all unusual to be working with relocation buyers.  I'd been doing it for years.  Our first conversation was pleasant enough.  We discussed the parameters of his search, his preferences for this move and his concern that his partner, who had never set foot upon New York soil, might n...

One of my favorite places on Long Island is the Old Bethpage Village Restoration.  The minute you park your car, you find yourself in a time warp.  You've left the 21st century behind for the charm and quietude of a country village in the mid 1800s.  This recreated typical farming community of it...

Of all the things for which I am thankful, and there are many, nothing surpasses the joy of watching my grandchildren grow up.  It is with wonder that I watch and listen to them and their perceptions of the world around them.  My little one, having just turned four, will happily carry on a conver...

I was sitting at my computer at about 5 p.m. when the phone rang.  It was my friend who has been having a really bad run of luck lately.  Unfortunately he fell again last night and wound up breaking a couple of ribs and puncturing a lung.  To add to the misery, his cat was really sick, needing em...
