What's New in Real Estate - November 2020
This time of year we all take the time to give thanks for all of the wonderful things in our lives. I have much to be thankful for. The obvious chart toppers are good health, wonderful family and friends, and of course, a warm home to come home to each day.  

My gratitude extends much deeper, however, to all of the people I work with every day that make real estate transactions so seamless for my clients – from the best mortgage brokers and closers to incredible home inspectors and handymen, contractors, electricians, roofers… that I can count on to give their best to my clients. With them by my side (or on speed dial) I have been able to provide the highest level of service to those I work with, and for that I am grateful. And of course to all of you, my clients, friends and supporters -- I have loved my 22 years helping you and/or your family and friend with real estate matters throughout our region!

2020 has been a year we would all love to forget, but before we say goodbye to 2020, even with all that has been so challenging this year, we have much to be thankful for this holiday season! And as we move toward a brighter 2021, if a move is in your future (or someone important to you), I am here for you, ready to help! Just give me a call!

Sending you good wishes and great health,

School:Home Value Ratios

Do you think living in a top ten school district adds value to our homes? 
Absolutely! There is no doubt in my mind that living in the Quaker Valley School District, ranked in the top ten in Western Pennsylvania, adds both value and sale-ability to our homes. We are fortunate to live in a district with well state-of-the-art elementary and middle schools and a hard-working board that continue...
Setting the Stage to Sell Your Home

I’ve heard a lot about having my home professionally staged – I think my home is well decorated – is it something I need to do?
Home staging is more about marketing a home and less about interior design. Your home could be beautifully decorated and poorly staged. The distinction is critical if your main focus is getting your home sold. Interior design is often...
