My Historical Town - Vincentown in Southampton New Jersey

Real Estate Agent with Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc.

As a native Pennsylvanian and an inner city kid, I never dreamed of living in the small historical town called Vincentown in Southampton, NJ.  This beautiful town in Burlington County only has eight streets.  These 8 streets hold a history dating back to the 1700's.  The home I live in is 175 years old.  Sometimes I imagine the servants saying, "look who the mistress of the house is now". (smile)  As a Realtor, I really appreciate how sturdy homes were built back then.  The craftsmenship is remarkable.  This little town has 3 churches, a pizza parlor, 2 family restaurants, a library, an elementary school and fire company.  We have a Town Hall where the Historical Society meets once a month, and a Historical Telephone Building that dates back to the first telephone operators.  And to top it all off, we know and care for our neighbors.  I truly understand what Dorothy meant in the Wizard of Oz when she said, "There's no place like home".  Every year we have a Memorial Day Parade down Main Street.  We have fireworks for the 4th of July.  The children in our community have a Halloween Parade.  To live in this area of Burlington County, Southampton, as a Realtor, is a gift to me and my family.  I have neighbors that I call my "friends"!  I'm passionate about my work with my clients in Burlington County, which encompasses not only Southampton, but I represent Moorestown, Medford, Shamong, Tabernacle, Mt. Laurel, Mt. Holly and more.  Every year I continue my education in Real Estate to bring more information to my clients, which enables them to be informed consumers who know about the market they live in.  Dreams do come true if you get your education, work hard and believe!
