We all realize that the best time to sell anything is when demand is high and the supply of that item is limited. The last two major reports issued by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) revealed information that suggests that now is a great time to sell your house.

Open House at this renovated antique home in Danvers MA. Sunday, December 6th, 12 noon to 1:30 PM. 

Come see this beautifully restored 1830s colonial in Danvers near the reservoir and the rail trail. Renovated in 2013-2014, this large home features a completely remodeled kitchen with brand new Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. It boasts 4 large bedrooms, 3 remodeled full baths, 5 fireplaces, almost 2500 sq ft of living area and a 3/4 acre lot. Brand new cedar siding, new electric service and high efficiency heating system. Refinished hardwood flooring throughout. Good morning staircase leads to the kitchen and the unique front staircase that splits in 2 directions - one to the front of the house and one to the back. Walk-up attic for possible future expansion. The huge barn would be perfect for a workshop or storage, or with some work, possibly a garage. If you like period & historic details but with modern amenities, you will love this home!

The lack of homes for sale is slowing down the housing market. Contrary to popular believe the winter is a great time to put your home on the market because there is less competition.
The housing crisis is finally in the rear view mirror as the real estate market moves down the road to a complete recovery. Home values are up. Home sales are up. Distressed sales (foreclosures and short sales) have fallen dramatically.

Thinking of Buying a Home? 3 Questions Every Buyer Should Answer First.
If you are debating purchasing a home right now, you are probably getting a lot of advice. Though your friends and family will have your best interest at heart, they may not be fully aware of your needs and what is currently happening in the real estate market.

Story
Tagline
Serving Home Buyers and Seller on the North Shore of Massachusetts
Introduction

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.
