Fourth in the office for the big closing month of August and looking forward to a busy last quarter! With fewer buyers consisting of families with school age children, the real estate business is less seasonal than it used to be. From Labor Day to New Year’s, there are still buyers looking for houses and […]
Happy New Year to all readers of this post! Wishing everyone peace and good fortune in 2019. Just finished my end-of-year real estate accounting and also wanted to thank my clients for a good 2018 in which I closed 22 transactions in six counties (Mercer, Middlesex, Somerset, Burlington and Ocean in NJ and Bucks in […]
Congratulations to my clients S and A! They survived the harrowing “back-to-back same day closing” scenario last week, first selling their historic house in Lawrenceville (which had been in the wife’s family for forty years), and then a few hours later using those proceeds to buy their gorgeous new house with pool in New Egypt. […]
Happy Friday everybody! Did you know research shows Friday is the best day of the week to go on the market as a new listing? So, here’s mine, fresh off the presses! http://matrixweb.trendmls.com/matrix/shared/M9r70ZnxYD/224LanderDr
My friends Frank and Robin are selling their four-year-young house outside North Myrtle Beach. Look what a gorgeous and almost new property you get down there for $239,000, just six miles from the ocean! Property taxes a whopping $2,618/year. Many thanks to my Coldwell Banker colleague Jana Muffley of Coldwell Banker Chicora Advantage for presenting the […]
New listing coming soon! Cute house in nice neighborhood, less than a quarter mile walk to the great restaurants and shops of historic Newtown Borough. Newtown was founded by William Penn in 1684 and its entire central business district is on the National Register of Historic Places. Outstanding Council Rock schools and low PA taxes!
Proud and thankful to have qualified for the New Jersey Realtors Circle of Excellence for the fifth year in a row in 2016. JUST MISSED repeating my 2015 silver level performance. Congratulations to all my local (Princeton, Princeton Junction and Montgomery/Hillsborough) Coldwell Banker colleagues who made it. Buyers and sellers–call, text, email or Facebook me […]
Number two agent in the office for December (Heidi’s hard to beat!) In the Top Five of our 60+ agents the last three months of 2016. I had a great fourth quarter–thank you loyal clients!
As we wrap up another year, I would like to send out a huge thanks to all my 2016 clients. There are hundreds of realtors in the Princeton area, and I appreciate every single person who decides to hire me to assist them. So thank you Robin and Mike, Takashi and Chiho, Denise, Aaron and […]

State of the art $35,000 septic system being installed in my new Hopewell listing today. The work is being done by G. M. Maintenance of Belle Mead. Here’s the charming house on 3.55 acres: Details about the property here.
Last week I settled the quickest short sale in the history of the universe (my universe, at least). Nine days on the market, 96% of asking price, 64 days from contract to closing, or the average time it takes a regular transaction to close. It all happened so fast my seller had to scramble to […]
Congratulations to all my colleagues. We work hard for our clients!
Today my colleague Robin Jackson and I closed the most expensive property ever to sell in beautiful Millstone Township, Monmouth County. We represented both sellers and buyers in a very complex transaction that closed at $1.355 million. The 7,000 square foot custom house originally sat on 44 acres; buyers purchased the house on 15 acres, […]
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I am of mixed opinion. In one respect, certainly Princeton’s historically African-American neighborhood deserves official designation and protection from destruction. But regular zoning laws, already conservative in Princeton, take care of that in my opinion. Nobody’s putting up a high-rise apartment building on John Street, […]
I love all the holiday house tours in our historic towns, but this might be my favorite. Mill Hill is very compact, so not a lot of walking is required, and the homes (the oldest was built in 1826) are just spectacular in unusual ways. Mill Hill 49th Annual Holiday House Tour
It’s official: Jersey has the highest percentage of young people who can’t afford to leave home. A record 48% of New Jerseyans aged 18-34 are living with parents. They’re better educated than most, but a very weak job market, declining wages, soaring student loans, and high housing costs (including property taxes) make it impossible for them to get […]
I urge everyone to start their week right by reading this truly great essay by Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Inga Saffron in today’s Philadelphia Inquirer. NOBODY predicted what happened in Philly over the last three days, while a chunk of the city was closed to cars and buses to provide security for Pope Francis. What […]
Jersey peaches are peaking right now and they are OUTSTANDING. Did you know Jersey is the country’s fourth largest producer of peaches, after California, South Carolina and Georgia? And 100% of our peaches are picked by hand and sold on the fresh market. Pick them yourself here in the Princeton area at Lee Turkey Farm in East […]
I ended up the #5 agent in the office for the busy month of July. It’s been a great year thanks to my loyal clients!
This is Princeton Landing, a California-looking development in Plainsboro with an unusual history that includes the Dutch and their propensity for growing flowers, the university and its enormous land holdings, the Rockefellers, and classified research on peacetime uses of nuclear energy. Now, it’s just a well landscaped neighborhood of mostly townhomes with open floorplans, two-car […]
Closed this large, traditional house built by Toll Brothers in West Windsor yesterday. Six days on the market, 13 showings, 98.8% of asking price (we were asking $850 and we accepted $840). All the best to my clients who are moving on to new construction in Monroe.
Closed this lovely Cape Cod in Pennington Boro this morning. Walkable to town and to the park, all hardwood floors. My client is thrilled to be cutting his commute from 60 minutes each way to five!
I am proud to say I once again made it into what’s called the “Circle of Excellence” for New Jersey real estate agents. You need a certain minimum number of transactions as well as a minimum total dollar volume to receive the award. The “Distinguished Sales Club” is reserved for those who have made it […]
