Why would someone write an article on buying versus renting a home?What’s in it for the author of the article?Why would you read one?What is it you want to hear? Do you just want confirmation and justification for what you already believe and want to do? Or, are you looking to be convinced otherwise?These are all good questions to ask yourself if you find yourself reading an article on whether it makes more sense to buy a home, or rent a house because you are thinking of living in South Windsor.There are “reasons” to buy, and “reasons” to rent.People want to make choices based upon reason. So, if you start reading about whether to buy versus rent a home, you’ll certainly be given “reasons”, like: When renting you’re just paying someone else’s mortgage. You’re throwing your money away wh...

BEST Karate school in South Windsor, Connecticut. I would like to tell you about Clayton’s Kenpo Karate, located at 942 Sullivan Avenue, (860) 648-2585, South Windsor.   When my oldest son, Nikita, turned nine years old, my husband and I were thinking about what kind of sport we could sign him up for. Of course, he was taking swimming lessons and playing baseball and soccer during the warm seasons, but what can you do all year around?   Being the daughter of a military officer, I always remembered my father practicing martial arts, such as karate, dzudo, and even boxing. My dad was in great physical and mental health, thanks to his continuined training.   Being the mom of two boys, I always keep in mind what a role model my father was to me and what he taught me. With that in mind, my h...

    Just want to share with all of you what I have been doing in the last few weeks and why I off the radar on AR blogs for a while.    As some of you know that I am not just a real estate agent, but also a piano teacher. I have been teaching piano for 17 years, I love what I do and I absolutely LOVE all my students. I think every child has potential to accomplish something great with right instruction. So, if you’ve been following my past posts you know that one of my students won CT state piano competition in May – Audrey Thayer piano competition. And if you follow my posts, you know that I participate in The Achievement Program through Royal Conservatory of music.     Well… My student, Ayushman Choudhury, is recipient of the 2012 Tri-State Certificate of Excellence for level 5 in CT ...

  Why do I need Hard Assets in South Windsor? How do I add Hard Assets to my IRA? South Windsor hard assets represent things that can be touched and that have concrete values. Hard assets can also be referred to as real assets because they are physical in nature and not conceptual like stocks and bonds. Oil, natural gas, gold, and land are all examples of South Windsor hard assets. Hard assets can be used to produce other goods – metal in cars – or to generate income – real estate in South Windsor. Because hard assets represent tangible things that are in demand, they usually keep pace with inflation. Further, hard assets have little correlation with financial assets, such as stocks and bonds. South Windsor real estate, in particular, has long been a store of value and has generated inc...

It is official. 2012 has come to an end. Happy 2013, Everyone!    We didn’t have a lot of snow here, in New England, and were pleasantly surprised when it snowed on December 29. The New Year’s night really felt special… With all that sparkling fluffy snow on the ground. And having a great company made it special too. Children really enjoyed our “own” fireworks.    As I look back on 2012, I realize how fortunate I am, having such a wonderful family: my caring and loving husband for almost 18 years (!!!!) and two sons, who I absolutely love and adore J    But looking in the future, I sure hope that year 2013 will be less violent. It breaks my heart to think that some parents have lost their young children in the Newtown shooting… For a reason which nobody knows. Happy and Healthy  2013 to...

“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together” Garrison Keillor.   Musical moment... Timeless classical suite: The Nutcracker.     I can’t believe that all the excitement and anticipation is over! Another year, another Christmas… How did it all happen? Well, my mom was right when she was telling me back when I was a little girl: “Don’t wish to be older… When you’ll get there, you can’t turn the clock back.”     Yes, now I am mom of two wonderful boys: Nikita, 15 years old, and Andrei, 8 years old. And I am trying to tell them to enjoy every day of their childhood.   Being a piano teacher I have strong association of Christmas with one of THE MOST beautiful and beloved classical pieces: The Nutcracker, composed by Peter Il...
