Three of my Black Rock listings passed title this week            One happy seller is shown above flanked by her buyers. The buyers of these three homes came from Fairfield, Stratford, and Black Rock. One of the buyers already owns a home in Black Rock and bought a second one!

  Welcome to this edition of The Monday Morning Memo....I trust you had a fantastic Sat/Sun and will enjoy the Memorial Day Holiday today with lots of fun and relaxation.  I know that some days are much harder than others.  I know that some days we wish we had them back so we could either do a little more or do things a little differently.  I know that some days we wish they would just end.  Please keep in mind that we only have so many days.  We cannot give ourselves more, but what we do with them is completely up to us.  You will face challenges and obstacles, but you can also face success and happiness.  Most of the time they are all present at the same time.  Live each day with a sense of excitement and each moment with a feeling of thankfulness.  You are what you make yourself to b...

HOW I GOT STARTED IN NICHE MARKETINGWhen I started in real estate at the peak of the market in 2004-2005, I was warned against focusing on one small area.  My sales manager, my mentor, and experienced agents told me this was the wrong strategy.  What they said made sense at the time.  Homes were selling like hot cakes, the Internet was just beginning to play a role in real estate, and limiting myself didn’t make a lot of sense.  However, I just knew that I wanted to be an expert in my market and bring a depth of knowledge to my clients, that I couldn’t bring if I spread myself too thin.  I had already lived in the neighborhood for 20 years, so I had a lot of knowledge of both the community and the housing stock (I was addicted to attending Open Houses).  I also knew a lot of people from...

Prices are rising nationwide and Black Rock prices are increasing as well, but are still low compared to surrounding towns, such as Fairfield.  There are several things that are likely to positively impact Black Rock condo and co-op prices in the next few years: Fairfield Metro train station – express trains of just over an hour to Manhattan, most of Black Rock is within walking distance to it, and there is ample day parking, New York City residents have discovered Black Rock and word is spreading Fox Street Pedestrian Bridge – this is still in the planning stages and has not been funded yet, but a feasibility study by the State of Connecticut is underway, while it is estimated to be 2-4 years away from completion, this will connect the business are of Black Rock with the train station ...

Black Rock Pilates and Black Rock Physical Therapy Expansion, Plus New Coffeehouse? Black Rock Pilates in conjunction with Black Rock Physical Therapy purchased the building in which they are currently located at 2889 Fairfield Avenue in Black Rock.  The decision to purchase the building, was driven by their need for Black Rock Physical Therapy to be located on the 1st floor for patient needs, as well as the Pilates Studio's desire to expand their space. The Studio space will soon consist of the entire top floor. This will result in a slightly larger Mat, TRX and Barre Studio room, a slightly larger Group Equipment area and Private Session space.  They will still have separate but yet joined studios to work in. Black Rock Physical Therapy will be moving into the space formerly occupied ...
