 Anita Clark is on Holiday but will be back next week  Facebook Friday as promised I am going to discuss Facebook ads  You may go out and enjoy the Holiday Memorial Day Weekend and not worry too much if you have an Ad running on Facebook. Years ago I remember running Ads in local Newspapers and Real Estate Magazines. The cost of these Ads was much more expensive than a Facebook Ad is. Your Ad may be doing the work for you as long as you are checking in periodically to see if there are any questions that need to be answered. I have been running my Local Markert Reports with pictures of the area. Facebook has a format for the pictures and you may choose which format you would like to use. I like to start out talking to my audience but you may do whatever you feel comfortable with. The Ad ...

   Thanks to my artist neighbor my workspace is all set up. I had no idea how to hang this beautiful old clock nor did I want it to keep time and chime. The wood matches perfectly with this desk. Rich is a professional artist and when he hangs something it is done just right. Now when I look at my workspace it leaves me speechless

This is an almost Wordless Wednesday: Mirror Mirror on the Table whose the Fairest Cat in the Fable. Cleo upon looking in the new mirror on the coffee table was fascinated by her image. The etching in the middle says gorgeous. This saying with a play on words came to mind as she kept walking away and coming back to look at her image.

  Picked up this beautiful antique makeup desk and chair. Every day I find Cleo sitting in the chair as if she is getting ready to make herself beautiful. She really loves to just sit in the chair. This is a picture of her standing. I really have to smile every time I see her here. It belonged to my closest friends Mother Anna.

 Let's Talk about the Bakers Bay Waterfront Gated Condo Community. I went to dinner last week before the Passover and Easter holiday with my cousin and his girl's friend that live in Bakers Bay. They always ask me about the Real Estate market as they know I sell condos in their development. We laugh as I am told the joke that in the Mid-Rise the units sell in the elevator. It gets me going as I start with my theory on why do agents grossly overprice some units by tens of thousands of dollars. I go off for several minutes and they listen to my educated speech on pricing and selling condos. Sometimes I think they do this just to hear me get excited which I always do as I explain the Bakers Bay Real Estate Market to them. Something I am very passionate about.  Let us now take a look at wha...

Today I stopped and cut some of the beautiful forsythias flowers that bloom and surround the grounds of Delaire Landing in Spring. I put these long beautiful stems of golden sunshine in a vase on my coffee table When Cleo my cat thought I was busy she went over to sniff things out. I was surprised to learn these lovely flowers originate in the Far East.

As an affiliate member of the Suburban West Realtors® Association, I spoke at its January 30, 2019 educational seminar “2018 Tax Changes and Tax Issues Effecting REALTORS” held at the SWRA’s office in Malvern, PA. As an Enrolled Agent and Certified Tax Resolution Specialist with the Exton, PA accounting firm of Keystone Financial Solutions, Inc., I enjoy speaking before this group to answer their income tax questions.This was a particularly rewarding experience due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 which made several very significant changes to the taxation of individuals, including reforms to itemized deductions and the alternative minimum tax, an expanded standard deduction and child tax credit, and lower marginal tax rates. All attendees wanted to understand how the new tax act im...

 Relax time, yes after I tell you about this - There are so many things I still could do but I want to tell you about a movie I saw last night. It is called "Green Book"  the book was used as a guide for black travelers to eat and find lodging without humiliation when traveling across the country. The book was written in 1936 by a postal worker named Hugo Green  The movie was inspired by a true story - taking place in the 1960s  Not going into too much detail- Opens up in the Copa Cabana in NY  It is about an Italian NewYork Night Club Bouncer with Wife children and a large family. He finds himself  temporarily out of work for a few months before the Christmas Holiday Season  It is also about a Black Dr. Pianist brilliant without a family going on a tour in the deep south he needs a dri...

Time to talk about Rivers Bend  Condo Community. This is a Pet-Friendly Condo Community. Yes, you heard me right you are allowed dogs of all shape and sizes no weight restrictions either. I love seeing the dogs proudly walking their owners. the owners do curb their dogs, in other words, they do clean up after their pets. I see it all the time. Sometimes I would like to stop and take pictures but really not sure of the reaction. Most of the time I am also caught up in traffic and not able to stop.  Rivers Bend Condo units are two story twins. Each unit has two levels they both have 2 BR 2 Bath garage, laundry, and driveway with shared yard. an A unit is the first floor which has a lower level and may have a half bath -The B unit is the second floor, has a loft may have a half bath and is...

 On my way home from the office I stopped to get some vegetables there were these beautiful tulips. Pure yellow sunshine to put in a vase. I knew Cleo would also enjoy these can you see her in the picture. On the way home, this song was playing on the radio in the car. Hope you take a moment to listen and enjoy. Wordless Wednesday: Our House is a Very Fine House

Video an Oldie but Goodie from NYC I was looking for a video for a friend and came across this old video I made. Not great quality but fantastic advice on how to blog. It was at RainCamp in NYC the best advice was to comment on other members posts,  This is how you create relationships. The other important advice was to be yourself. Write the way you think. Don't try to be someone you are not. Your clients chose you for who you are not your punctuation Also, try to stay away from politics and religion as you may offend or make someone uncomfortable  Sheldon Neal    Patricia Kennedy Cindy Jones  - on the Panel  on the stage  Bob Stewart  Brad Andersohn Miss you all all
