GOING ON WINTER VACATION WHILE YOUR HOUSE IS ON THE MARKET?   Two major vacations you will have in a year. Summer vacation and winter vacation.   Your home is on the market and ready to sell – it could be snapped up any day now, but you have a vacation coming up or would like to take a trip out of town. So what do you do? Unlike Summer vacation, you have a couple of more things to think during the Winter vacation. 1. Consult your real estate agent “Communication is at the center of real estate,” Good communication between you and your real estate agent is key. Be upfront and tell your agent that you’re planning a vacation, well in advance. Your agent can tell you your options and help you develop a plan for how to handle any queries or issues in your absence. 2. Develop a plan of action...

   Wisdom From Ben Franklin….   Times are harder now then they were in Ben's day.  I think there are clear reasons for this which we can discuss at any time.  That being said, I believe certain truths still hold and that life can still be well lived if we choose wisely and choose to live it well.  I was forwarded this last week from one of my referral partners, I hope you find it as inspiring as I did.   Benjamin Franklin was clearly a man who knew how to get things done.Here are 14 action-inducing lessons from him:        Less Talk, More Action  “Well done is better than well said.” Talk is cheap. Talking about a project won't get it completed. We all know people who constantly talk about the things they are going to do but rarely ever take that first step. Eventually people begin to q...

Jamaican Jerk Pork ~ Connecticut BBQ Recipe. We just returned from a wonderful trip down to the Caribbean Islands were we had many many wonderful meals. One of our favorites was Jamaican Jerk Pork on the BBQ. You can either use pork chops or a pork loin for this recipe (this marinade also works well with lamb chops). It is very easy, make the marinade in the morning and marinate the meat all day, then cook the meat on your BBQ, wood fire charcoal is the best but gas will do as well. Jerk Marinade. 1 onion 7 sprigs of fresh thyme (about 1 tablespoon chopped) 2 cloves of garlic 1 scotch bonnet pepper (or habanero) 1 tablespoon brown sugar                                               1 teaspoon grated ginger 2 teaspoons ground allspice 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon cinnamon 2 teaspoons sal...

Westport, CT: Single-Family Home Sales          As 2014 draws to a close, we are set to post the finishing numbers on what has turned out to be a disappointing year for the Westport real estate market. The year got off to a shaky start, as winter storms pummeled Westport, during January and February. By March and April, the market appeared to be getting back on track, as monthly number of homes sold approached 2013 levels. The optimism was short lived and the expected late spring market surge never materialized. At the end of the first two quarters, unit sales were down 19% vs. 2013.     Through the summer, sales continued to fall behind corresponding monthly totals, a year ago. October and November were the only months posting gains over 2013. As of December 11, there were 365 single-f...

The Saugatuck River looks so peaceful usually when I drive down either Saugatuck Avenue or Imperial Drive on the other side of  the river.     There are several little parks next to the road where you can walk your dog, or just sit and enjoy the view.    Such a peaceful spot - lots of us get out to enjoy!

Stand Up For Homes With Hope in Westport, CT 06880 I tagged along to a wonderful fundraiser last night for Homes For Hope in Westport at the Westport Playhouse.    What an incredible event for an amazing cause.   Homes for Hope was founded in 1983 as the Interfaith Housing Association for Westport and Weston.   It was a multi- denominational response to a growing need by a caring group to the growing level of homelessness in the local area.   Over the years, Homes for Hope has shown that the community is not one of blind privilege.   So many good neighbors have given so much of their time and effort into this wonderful cause of helping those in need.   To learn more, visit www.hwhct.org.   Last night there was a wonderful cocktail party with fabulous hors d'oeuvres, a tremendously talen...

Saugatuck Shores in Westport CT - a Very Desirable Place to Live! Saugatuck Shores is a beautiful part of Westport, CT.    It is located on a spit of land that juts out into the body of Long Island Sound.  Any and all sailing or boating fanatics (I am one!) will find this area very hard to resist.   The sea just pulls us in and we have to be there! Saugatuck Shores is on the western part of the coast of Westport, closest to Norwalk and Rowayton.   Enjoy these pictures I took today - the weather was fabulous!!   Saugatuck Shores in Westport CT - a Very Desirable Place to Live!

Saugatuck Shores in Westport, CT 06880 Saugatuck Shores is a beautiful penninsula that crops out into the Long Island Sound, with great boat slips, and views everywhere!   The homes are all gorgeous, and the neighborhood is very intimate.   Everyone knows everyone, as the homes are all pretty close.   This photo was taken from the marsh side - but right on the other side of those homes, is the Long Island Sound with all of the water views.   Yes, there is a canal which separates the mainland from the actual Saugatuck area.                 Saugatuck Shores in Westport, CT 06880
