Let's remember how bad it really was!   My general territory is in the Essex and Middlesex Counties of  Massachusetts.  We had a storm in May of 2006 which has been etched into history as the "Mother's Day Storm".  The  major storm actually started on Friday May 12th and continued through the we...
My New Program for those who doubt the market data. I take great pride in my ability to establish a listing price that will attract offers.

It seems like every FHA deal comes back from underwriting 3-4 times withmore conditions. I have one that with a closing date of Nov.30th and was assured that i...
Think Twice before taking your home off for the Holidays! Believe it or not, this can be a great time to sell your home and maximize your bottom line. I have already seen the number of new listings shrinking every day and expiring contracts ready to give up until the "spring market".  Last year i...
