The answer, according to the article is that it didn't have to be this way.  I certainly think that this was more for the benefit of the 1% than the impoverished masses in the the third world.

One of my recent photo-shoots.  This lovely home is located in the famous Fleetwood section of Mount Vernon less than 30 minutes from GCS and midtown  Manhattan...Wonderful, large, private lot.  Beautiful pre-war Dutch Colonial with modern amenities.

UNBELIEVABLE!   Suggesting that commuters INVADE local neighborhoods by giving them literally a road map for cut-throughs.  10 THUMBS DOWN for the Journal News and Hoa Nguyen who couldn't find any REAL reporting to do, so he has to suggest commuters cut through MY NEIGHBORHOOD when the traffic is bad.  Disgusting. 

I will add to this that this tells the LIE that our city council is feeding the residents that the traffic from FASNY and other projects isn't "significant". So I ask this council and this mayor...What are YOU going to do to protect property values in these neighborhoods. My guess is the answer is nothing but empty rhetoric. Shame on you as well.
Traffic volume has been up overall — a trend that was identified nationally months ago.

THIS IS WHY APPLE REALLY BLOWS THESE DAYS.

I wish I had seen this a couple of years ago because I am in the same boat.  No, I didn't spend $4k on a computer, but I did pay top dollar for a macbook Pro...about $2700...about 4.5 years ago.  The NVIDIA card failed - as apparently they all do...and Apple is now saying too bad!  Now we want $560 to replace the card and the logic board (to which the card is glued) with the same piece of shit that failed in the first place.  In other words, you take out one time bomb that exploded (figuratively) and replace it with another - all at consumer's expense.  

The more I looked into this online, the more I realized that this was a monster problem for Apple.  Almost their entire line of MacBooks dating from 2008-2013 and perhaps early 2014 have this built in obsolescence which people pay top-dollar for Apple DO NOT EXPECT. 

The video card issue is so big that they may lose much of the creative crowd.  

Btw Apple...Certainly by the end of 2010 you should have been aware of this problem.  Why on earth did you continue using the same video card?
 
Hilarious case about a local Seattlite taking Apple to small claims court, and winning against two of their attorneys.

"I guess what they say is true. The sun even shines on a dog’s butthole every now and then, and on this day, I got myself a nice tan."

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.

Ran into this a bit belatedly.  But its only a couple of weeks old.  For those who are hesitating to buy, rents are only getting higher.  Interest rates are nice and low and the market is appreciating.  Waiting is only going to make it more expensive. 
We often promote homeownership over renting when a family is ready, willing and able to purchase. There are both financial and non-financial benefits to owning a home of your own. Based on the headlines below, many news outlets agreed with us after they reviewed a recent report from the Harvard ...

Trying to catch up with photos.  Been dealing with a very sick Macintosh...More to come!

One of my photo-shoots.  This is a beautiful colonial in Ossining NY.  Large home with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a bit over 3400 sf.  Has all the modern amenities along with the charm of a pre-war home.  Wonderful property for three-season living outdoors. Layout is perfect for entertaining.

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.

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.
