Another photo-shoot of a very unique home.  This home dates back to the 19th century and is a seamless combination of a one-room schoolhouse, a carriage house, and a general store.  The modern mixes very well with the historic as the house boasts a totally modern granite eat-in kitchen with vaulted and beamed ceilings.  The master suite has a wonderful modern bath with all the amenities. 

This home is offered for sale by:

Part 2 of "What do listing agents actually do?" Once we stick the proverbial sign in the ground, do we run away and hide - waiting for a ginormous check? If it were that simple, listing agents would have gone the way of the dodo long before now! Give a listen to this podcast if you want to learn more.

Sometimes you just think there is a person under that suit. But moms are moms and kids are kids, at the end of the day!

The new Tappan Zee Bridge appear from out of the water just north of the old bridge. We should look at this comittment to our infrastructure as a good thing for Westchester river towns and Westchester in gnereal. http://thewestchesterview.com/2015/04/12/bridges-in-parallel-the-new-tappan-zee-bridge/

This is pretty funny, but sersiouly, I think it is past time  for me to say goodbye to YouTube - at least from a marketing standpoint.  Buts seriously,  If YouTube really wants content creators who are marketing businesses to stick around and provide content, they have to be far more responsive to their needs and issues.  

Sadly, I don't see that happening.  Its just one headache after another with them if you are providing content for your business.  Between copyright trolls harassing me for music tracks that I bought and had a  license to use to this new auto-play feature where I end up advertising my COMPETITION, it is obvious that they could care less. Its just one thing after another and I'm sick and tired of trying to make things work just for the Google juice.  NOTHING is worth the crap they are putting small businesses through.

One of my recent photo-shoots.  This is a cooperative in the heart of downtown White Plains. The Broadlawn is considered to be one of the premier cooperatives in White Plains. Located just about a block from the Ritz Carlton, this complex is at the center of everything.  Leave your car and walk almost anywhere.  Its also a commuter's dream - just 33 minutes to Grand Central Station. 

This unit is a 1200 sf duplex with 2BR/1BA.  Great unit with wonderful park views.  Even though it is in the heart of the downtown, the surroundings are bucolic and peaceful.

What do listing agents actually do? Do we stick a sign in the ground throw a few photos on the MLS and just disappear? This is a more revealing look at what listing agents actually DO. Enjoy the podcast or, if you prefer, just skim the transcript. This is part 1 of 2.

We have the highest electrical and gas rates in the NATION.  Yet the oldest ad perhaps most out-of-date grid.  Why don't we let the SHAREHOLDERS foot some of this bill for a change. Investing in anything is never a sure thing and when systems aren't properly maintained, that is NOT the fault of the consumer. 
Con Edison — which charges the highest electric rates of any big-city utility — wants more. Typical New York City apartment dwellers who use 300 kilowatt hours of electricity each month would see t...

Housing inventory has been exceptionally tight both in the Westchester market and other markets.   This podcast explains why this seems to be happening and what to do about it if you are in the market to buy (or sell) your home.

Story
Tagline
Always take the road less traveled...
Introduction
Real estate agent in lower Westchester also turned commercial and real estate photographer.  

My emphasis on photography came early in my real estate career.  After working with many buyers, I realized that a great presentation was one of the best gifts you could give to a listing.  Great photography brings buyers to listings. Bad photography keeps them away. As an agent I dragged many a buyer kicking and screaming to a house that they had rejected based on poor photography.  

So, over time, the focus changed to promoting listings.  I still enjoy working with buyers, and sellers directly, but I also focus on listing property and helping agents present the properties that they list in their best light.

I needed some waterproof hiking boots that would work with my orthotics. Finding shoes with these orthotics has always been something of a challenge. The staff was very helpful and was able to guide me through the maze of brands to a style that was not too expensive, yet had the flexibility that I needed. They definitely didn't steer me to anything particularly expensive. We started at the lower end to determine what features I needed without paying a premium for things I didn't need. They staff was patient and had sound advice.
