delaware county: 97 Duncan Ln, Springfield, Delaware County, PA 19064 OPEN HOUSE 10/12 1-3pm - 10/09/08 02:44 AM
I toured this lovely Raised Rancher in Springfield yesterday.
Sitting on a corner lot, with beautiful landscaping, this could be the home you have been dreaming of.
Three bedrooms on the main floor, and a huge bonus room with a half bath in the attic make great use of the space.
There is even a potential rec-room in the finished portion of the basement, and a very large storage and workshop area as well.
A side porch, a fenced-in back yard and a garage round out the functionalality of this great home in Springfield.
There will be an open House there … (3 comments)

delaware county: Vicky's Place, Swarthmore, Delaware County, PA -- A great spot in a Green Power Town - 08/29/08 02:57 PM
I had a lovely lunch with my wife and sons here the other day.  I had a sandwich (2 fried eggs, pork roll and cheese on a nice, fresh Kaiser roll).  Jinny had an omlette, Chuckie had scrambled eggs, sausage and home fries.  Joey had a bagel with cream cheese.
This cozy little luncheonette is the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast or lunch, with a home-cooked feel. Homesick Swarthmore College students and locals alike enjoy the traditional fare, friendly service, and the fact that the prices won't strain your wallet.  (Our 4-person meal, including beverages and tip came to about $26)

delaware county: 209 Walter Drive, Media, PA - 08/12/08 09:58 AM
I toured this Knowltonwood 3 bedroom, 2.5 Bath home today.
It is a wonderful hillside raised ranch on a cul-de-sac which borders land that Middletown Township has designated as preserved open space.
The Kitchen and Baths have all been updated, and the hardwood floors are beautifully finished.
One of the nicest features in my opinion was the enclosed rear porch. I could spend my entire day there, enjoying the sights and sounds of nature out back.

delaware county: As a Family Mourns, Firefighters Say they Could have Done More with More - 07/11/08 08:06 AM
The recent tragic death of 3 Chester Residents in a house fire has firefighters on the west side of the city saying they could have done more if there was more funding, staffing, and equipment for the fire company.
It is my hope, that the city will see the value in increasing the funding for the fire department.  As the roughly $550 Million waterfront re-development project progresses, with its professional soccer stadium, new town homes, and new commercial areas, there will be dramatic increase in demand for these services, and an increase in the dollar cost of potential losses due to fire, I … (4 comments)

delaware county: Fundraising Dinner for "Old Borough Hall" -- "And They Called it Macaroni" - 03/27/08 05:06 AM
by Rich Schiffer, Weichert Realtors 
As a Real Estate Agent, I rarely get the opportunity to participate in events that cover both of my primary interests:  Historic Preservation, AND Community Revitalization, which are often at odds with one another.   Needless to say, when I found out about this project, which encorporates both passions, I got very excited, and thought I should share it with you:

delaware county: Chester Community Grocery Co-Op: Sustainable Economic Stimulus - 03/11/08 01:25 PM
by Rich Schiffer
After reading Amy Brisson's article in the Delaware County Times, I feel compelled to respond:   She titled her article, "Chester's Community Grocery Co-op wants to expand."  For the sake of Chester, I truly hope they succeed, as their effort represents a level of "revitalization" that the community truly will benefit from.
The newly approved soccer stadium and the redevelopment of the Chester waterfront may be seen by future historians as the project that gave rebirth to an ailing city, but what will make that rebirth sustainable - ensuring that Chester does not fall back into the ashes it is … (2 comments)

A consumer has contacted me, inquiring about "Garages" in Delaware County, PA.  Specifically, they are looking for a "900-2,000 sq ft concrete block garage".  They say they have seen all that is available on the MLS, so I have done some checking through other sources, and come up with a few that may be appropriate for them, and I am including pictures and descriptions here.
