This has been an annual event the past few years - The American Cancer Society Relay for Life to be held at Passaic Valley High School in Little Falls, NJ - June 14 & 15 2008. This event which will begin on June 14 and continue throughout the night into the morning of the 15th, features participants walking the track of the high school for donations that they garner from sponsors. This unique event is all about community and honors those who have succumb to cancer, and those who are survivors. It also is seen as a way for those whose lives have been affected by the disease, either as patients or family members, to raise awareness and funds to support the ongoing effort of research for a cure.

Small town Little Falls New Jersey turned into big time celebrity corner on March 22. The Jonas Brothers, former residents of Little Falls, made an appearance in the township as part of a documentary being filmed by the Oprah Winfrey show.The documentary is following the popular band on it's current tour. The film crews followed the brothers to a few of their favorite New Jersey destinations which included Rita's Water Ice on East Main Street and also the ever popular tank park located in the center of town. From Little Falls the band traveled over to the Meadowlands for their concert that night at the Izod Center. The following morning, the band was in the Nation's Capitol for the annual Easter Egg hunt on the White House lawn which included breakfast with President Bush. It seems that...

Well it's been a little over a week since Rich and I acquired this property. Not a lot got done the first few days because we closed on it the Thursday before Easter - but I did manage on Easter Sunday to spend about four hours tearing down ceilings in the Living room and Dining room. This past Saturday we had the first of the major projects completed - the roof - which was in desperate condition. Here are some photos that I took today of the interior. The kitchen - those hideous green cabinets had to go!The electrical in here is just a mess. It was all hidden beneath the drop ceiling.The drop ceiling was taken down in the living room too giving some nice added height. Some electrical issues here too - plus a few heating pipes to be moved!The ugly fireplace in the dining room is no more...

What housing slump? I held a Public Open House today along with my listing partner on one of our new listings. It was a beautiful day here in Little Falls, NJ - clear blue sky, temperature around fifty degrees, bright sunshine - just a great day for an Open House. We had 23 visitors plus another 3 that came by with agents and 2 agents who came on their own to preview the listing for clients. I had a feeling that it would be a busy day because of the location of the property and the price. I just never expected the amount of traffic that we had. This tells me one thing - the Real Estate market in North Jersey is heating up. Now we've got a lot of follow up phone calls planned for tomorrow. Hopefully we'll have a buyer soon. The Real Estate market in North Jersey is ready to take off agai...

I held a Broker's Open House today in Little Falls with my listing partner on a brand new listing and we had a great turnout of area agents. We were on the fence about holding a Broker's Open since lately they haven't really been successful. But it seems when we get to a point when the Real Estate market tightens a bit, that's when the serious agents get serious. It helps that the property is in a very desirable location and is listed at a good price.                                                                 But that's not the most encouraging part of today. In addition to the agents, we had a potential buyer stop by too.  One of the visiting agents called later in the day to bring her client to the property and wants to come back again for a second visit. We had one potential buy...

Well, today I completed the course and now can call myself an ASP Realtor! Even though ASP - Accredited Staging Professional - is not a recognized designation by the National Association of Realtors (yet), it still is a valuable designation to obtain, especially in a market like the one we're in now. Home sellers need every advantage they can get to have their homes sell quickly and for the most money possible. I'm glad I've obtained this knowledge of how to Stage a Home for sale, as my listings and home sellers will benefit from this knowledge. After all, that's our business, to use every method at our disposal to help our clients sell their homes.Todays class included Staging a real home that's currently for sale here in North Jersey. All 53 of use headed to the site and were broken u...

 It seems as if Eugene Kulick has always been a part of the local government here in the Township of Little Falls, NJ. He's certainly been a fixture the past 13 years, 8 of those serving as Mayor, 5 as committeeman under the former Township Committee form of government. Love him or not, one thing you can't accuse this mayor of - and that's not being on the job. Mr. Kulick has literally embraced his position and served the people of Little Falls Township with one hundred percent effort. Sure he has had his share of critics, but who in the public eye hasn't? You know the old saying, you can please some of the people some of the time, but all of the people none of the time. But I can assure you of this, Eugene Kulick put his heart and soul into his job, whether as committeeman or as Mayor....

2008 is a special year for the Little Falls Womens Club. It marks the 100th year of existence for the Club, located on Prospect Avenue, Little Falls NJ. As part of the year long celebration, the Womens Club recently completed renovations of their building which included painting the exterior and some new landscape on the grounds, which will enhance the appearance of the building. The building and grounds have historically been maintained by the membership of the Club. 16 new members were recently welcomed into the club, which is a sign of progress and hopefully a step toward another 100 years of a successful organization and an important part of the community.
