Yes, I know.  Today's word is actually two words.  Outdoor Living.  We are entering my absolute favorite time of year.  It's also the most labor intensive, making my outside space livable after a long dreary winter. I have been busy mulching, weeding, edging, getting the pool ready and it is star...

When the market is hot many sellers think they can save money by listing with a low cost broker. They may consider a new different approach, thinking that the savings are going to end up in their pocket. But how much money are you leaving on the table?For the past two weeks we have listed homes, ...

I wrote last week about how my open houses over the Saturday and Sunday had been so crowded at 822 Cottonwood Drive in Malvern. Well I am not sure if this market is causing all the hoopla at open houses or if it is the houses or my marketing.We once again had a beautiful Tredyffrin Easttown listi...

If you watch any of the home buying programs it all seems so easy and quick. Call a real estate agent and hey presto half an hour and three homes later you make an offer and it is accepted. But the reality of buying a Tredyffrin Easttown, Main Line home is before you start looking at homes you ne...

How often have you heard the quote from Will Rogers that you do not get a second chance to make a first impression?   Lots, I'm guessing.  It's a hard lesson to learn as a young person, (particularly now in the age of social media).  Young teens sometimes say and do things that perhaps they will ...

With all the storms I was looking through some photos yesterday and it reminded me that it is Spring, and in a few weeks it will look beautiful and we will have forgotten all the snow. Usually our azaleas flower just before Mother's Day.And of course this time of year is when the tulip fields are...
