In this season of thanksgiving, and reassessment, I'm going through some kind of metamorphosis, both on a business level and in my personal world.  There is nothing more purifying than realizing when too much is just too much.  To say I'm a collector, is an understatement.  I've always had a relu...

This couldn't have come at a better time for me.  It is a time of growth and re-imagining myself and my business as we enter into the final lap of the race toward 2014.  I've recognized for a long time that my online persona has been getting long in the tooth and lackluster.  I, who have been on ...

I always thought people who, sleep deprived, stood, sat, or camped out, often in bitter cold to get one of those crazy Black Friday bargains were nuts. Nothing could be worth the physically challenging opportunity to acquire that which one might or might not need.  That was until this year. They ...

Today was a day of revelations as much as thanksgiving for me.  This year was not about a table overfilled with delectible goodies, prepared lovingly by relatives young and old.  The venue was not a crowded, cacaphonous room, filled with frenetic activity, save for the adorable little boy who dec...

Thanksgiving is making me more nostalgic than ever this year, perhaps because my kids are thousands of miles away, or maybe it's just a function of growing older.   I thought I'd resurrect a post I wrote about it years ago.  It is as true of the way I feel today as it was then.  It is also a remi...

Liz Wallace's post made me focus for a moment on just how blessed I've been in the years I've been serving the real estate needs of buyers and sellers on Long Island.  Some of the people I would never otherwise have met have turned out to be really good friends, and have stood the test of time. ...

Belinda Spillman inspired me this morning, with her post about color and the impact it has on you as a homeowner, and your client as a seller.  I've always been a proponent of warming up your walls.  It's the largest visual expanse you have in your home.  When you paint white, or a variation of t...

Thanksgiving is only days away and this lovely couple decided to beat the crowds on the roads.  They showed up early to be first in line for what is sure to be a special holiday dinner. For me, I'm thankful for the weather gods being on our side and allowing us our last gasp of fall in all its g...

"How will you sell my house?" is a question I hear all the time from sellers of Long Island property.  For many people, what we do seems mystical and unfathomable.  Contrary to the opinion of some naysayers, we do not simply take a listing, stick a sign in the yard and pray that someone on the ML...
