Being the daughter of a mechanical engineer (who was also in the military), we had lists for everything....there was a place for everything and everything had to be in it's place.

Staging a home for sale is all about making it inviting to the largest number of potential buyers. If a home is vacant, a stager will haul in furniture and décor so buyers can imagine themselves living there. If it's occupied, the stager will declutter, neutralize and decorate for the masses. Staging won't make a home sell for more than it's worth. But it can set your home apart and boost the selling price to the top of the range for comparable homes. It can also cut the time on the market. Because nearly 90% of home buyers start their search on the Internet, staging is a good way to make sure online photos pop. Home sellers spend an average of $1,800 to stage a home, but costs can range from a couple of hundred dollars to $5,000 or more. Here are six ways to stage your home for less th...

All about blogging.If you are twenty-something or younger, you probably don't need to be reading this. You've probably been happily blogging away for what seems like years, all your friends blog, you read their blogs, and they yours. But for those of us over forty (or, oh my gosh...more!), or with families to care for and busy jobs to do, or perhaps our attention has just been someplace else for the last few years, we may not have even heard the term, or if we had, it sounded like "flogging" and not wanting to go there, we just ignored it. But blogging is growing and for very good reasons, much like email took off ten years ago. But what really is BLOGGING - the act of producing a blog. What's a blog? That's a little bit harder to answer, but bear with me. The term blog is short for web...

Perched on the side of the Roxiticus Valley, with splendid views, rises this massive 8,100 sq. ft giant man-cave!  A 5 BR home designed by 4 men, who joined together to build the kind of house each of them dreamed of. It is majestic.  It is huge.  It is kinda dark and definitely splendid. Juliet Johnson Staging was brought in to "fem up" a few rooms and demonstrate how a family might love to live there.  My crew and I loved the home.  In fact, of all the homes I've done in the last 7 years, this is my favorite... and oddly the one I think the most livable... of the giants, at any rate.  One of my crew took the sales sheet home to a colleague who'd just won the Lottery! Many more blogs on this to come - here's the preliminary slide show. For more information, please visit ~ http://www.to...

Today, Mendham Township is a thriving community located in the south central portion of Morris County, approximately 35 miles west of New York City and 28 miles northwest of Newark. Philadelphia is approximately 80 miles to the southwest. Mendham enjoys convenient access via major highways in northern New Jersey, including Routes 24, 287, 80, 202, and 206.       MENDHAMThe first settlers over 250 years ago were attracted to Mendham Township by the abundance of natural resources. They found water, trees for fuel, and rich deposits of ore. By 1748 the area had iron forges, sawmills, and a gristmill along the North Branch of the Raritan River. Deposits of iron ore, mica, and limestone also attracted many settlers. Limestone was quarried in Ralston, the town's early name, for building mater...
