neighbors: Tree Hugger Dilemma - 07/18/14 04:19 AM
My clients are hardworking immigrants. They bought new construction in an established neighbohrood. Now they want to build a garage behind their house. They have the permits. Their contractor is ready to go. However, he warned them that a big old tree--80% on their property, 20% on the neighbor's property--will be destabilized when they start construction.

Thanks to Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl for your recent tips on sellers's neighbors! Great post. I go even farther: Paint the neighbor's porch if you have to. Offer to have their bushes trimmed. My client had an under-employed neighbor whose front door faced hers across a nice walkway. The neighbor's stucco had cracks and mildew.

neighbors: CSA coming to Erdenheim, PA - 03/08/10 05:16 AM
Hey Erdenheim....it is a tiny nook outside Chestnut Hill, PA. One of our neighbors has offered his house as a drop off point for Red Earth Farm...You buy a share or half a share in the farm produce in the spring and you get a box of produce every week through the summer and fall. Red Earth also has eggs and yogurt...and you have the option of going online to choose which food you like. I love love love kale...but a lot of people don't, so with this option, you won't get anything that you don't want. www.redearthfarm.org.
