  Wayland, MA 01778 Single Family Housing Market Report August 2011 reports activity of 130 homes are either Active, Under Agreement, Sold, Expired or Canceled.   While this isn’t quite as much activity as there is in the surrounding communities, the level is a good level of activity for this time of year.  With all the negative media surrounding the economy and the housing market it is hard for the real message to get through.  There has not been a time so good to buy and sell real estate as there is right now.  It is true the lending part is a bit more difficult, but the industry certainly needs to get a better and more service oriented than it has been through the last couple of years.  Besides the banks, the current prices in real estate market along with the interest rates being so...

Honoring the deals you make is essential for maintaining and building your relationships.  Any good sales person can convince someone of almost anything in the short run, but if you are not fact based and honest you will get caught.  Once you are caught in a dishonesty, or not honoring the deals you have made it will be almost impossible to make that ground up again with that person, or with any of the people that person knows.  As an agent it is easy to make promises like, "I will get back to you with that answer." but so many don't.  How do I know, because I am picking up your clients by answering my phone and doing what I say I will do.  It all seems so simple, but the reality is that it is not always so easy to follow through.  Life gets in the way, new commitments get in the way, ...

Wooden playground in Wayland, MA - a local Gem! If you live in or near Natick, Wayland, Framingham, or are traveling along rt 27, and 30, take your kids with you some day to play at Wooden Playground, a local favorite at the crossing of rt 27 (North Main st) and 30 (Commonwealth ave).  It's actually called Hannah Williams playground, in honor of a little girl who got missing. Everybody in the area calls it The Wooden Playground.  Lots of wooden structures to play, nothing is plastic! It's quite an interesting change from your regular cookie cutter playground.  Lots of toys for common use - trucks, cars, push toys, sandbox toys, an occasional fisher price table and chair set. And of course swing set and slides. It's partially shaded by big trees around, and is perfect getaway on a hot su...
