I heard something so nice this afternoon that I had to share.. Clients (and now friends) purchased a lovely home on Victory Boulevard, New Rochelle, 10804. We obtained the 3 bedroom home for $550,000 . It had been purchased by the previous (builder) owners for far less, and they had then totally transformed the kitchen, bathrooms, basement etc.. and my clients benefited from those renovations. I had negotiated lower on their behalf (of course), and also because the taxes were so high (we are going to grieve them at the end of this month). So, I called to wish Kamu ( a physician) a Happy Mother's Day, and to check in with regard to the tax grievance issue, and during our conversation, my clients mentioned how they were made to feel so welcome on their street and in their new abode. One neighbor had brought over a fruit bowl, another brought over a plant for their garden, and they had received nice cards from other neighbors. My friends are loving their new home, but more than that - the manner in which their neighbors have welcomed them..
My friends said "Gay, we were invited over to several of our neighbor's yards to see what they have done with their gardens.." I was so impressed.... but perhaps not... for that is how New Rochelle is, warm, welcoming, diverse, and Queen of the Sound..
New Rochelle is GREAT!
