I have recently need a good amount of properties go up for sale shortly after the owners bought the house in the Danbury,CT area. I can think easily of about a dozen properties in my market that things didn't work out after their closing and now the owners are in a position where listing their home for sale is a necessary matter. Keep in mind the following as part of your decision making process.-Expense:  There are settlement charges associated with the sale of your home. They include real estate service fee, real estate conveyance tax split between the town and the state, recording fee, and your attorney's fee. You will also have you pay your movers. You will also get back at closing any taxes that is paid in advance and reimbursed for any remaining fuel. -Are you are aware of any hou...

I did just recieve this unsolicated review from a recent real estate client. Jonathan,We would like to take a moment to thank you for your efforts over the years. We enjoyed working with you to find our first home for our family Danbury. When we thought about moving again, we knew we wanted to work with you again.  You were very helpful again in listening to our needs for your 'forever home'. We enjoyed toured only 6 homes matching our criteria which you came fully prepared with information.  We were fortunate to reach a satisfactory contract in a timely manner so secure such a great home that was almost twice as large as the condo   However, the covid 19  pandemic came we were panicked about our possible move. You kept us assured we were making the right decision, and worked hard to ge...

With so many different adventures offered in the point store I want to add my offer for those who love cruise.  Instead of Caribbean cruises or river cruises how about cruising the shores of the Long Island Sound.So lets get started as we leave on our yacht carrying 10 Active Rainers as we leave  from the Brewers Marina in Stamford Connecticut.  As we leave the shore we cruise the beautiful blue water.  Our first stop is across the Sound to the Beautiful Harbors or Northport, Centerport. and Huntington.  Here we disembark from food and adult libations.Back on the yacht we head east along the Long Island shoreline.  We disembark in Port Jefferson Harbor for some ice cream and then eastward along the shore of eastern Long Island.  We finally reach the north end of the Island--Orient Point...
