Real estate sales in Essex County were strong in the 2nd quarter of 2014, with median prices up 1.9% over last year. The number of closed sales is down, but that's a reflection of the drop in inventory from 2013 - ie: the number of homes on the market for b...
pricing conversation is always a challenge. You want top dollar for your home,

I have been a resident of the North Shore for most of my life. Born in Chicopee, MA, I moved to Danvers in 1961.
After receiving a degree in Conservation Technology, I worked in Salem in the marine electronics industry before opening a retail store in 1978 - Armstrong Animals Pet Center. I successfully operated the store for 19 years, acquiring vast knowledge & experience in customer service and marketing.
I received my real estate license in 2000, and became one of the top 3 Realtors® in Salem by 2002. I was promoted to manager of the Salem office of Vernon A. Martin, Inc. Realtors in the fall of 2002.
Following in the steps of my grandmother, Lilienne Field, who was one of the most outstanding and respected Realtors® in Salem from the 1940's through 1978, I opened my own office, Armstrong Field Real Estate. Like my grandmother, my focus is on customer service.
Though I lived in Salem for over 30 years, in 2008 found a great deal on a bank owned home in North Beverly that was too good to pass up.
