Move to progressive Ewing Township, New Jersey

Do you know how important it is to have a dynamic presence on the web? Chambers of commerce and visitors and convention bureaus are always updating their websites so that the newest and most dynamic information is always available for visitors and residents. These portals discuss current events, demographics, points of interest and businesses in the community.

Of course real estate agents keep their websites current with new listings, property tax information and links to schools and community services.

I am always grateful when I discover that a community that I represent as a New Jersey Realtor has taken a positive step to promote themselves by improving their website. At the beginning of the year, Ewing Township New Jersey did just that.

Ewing Township now offers a calendar of events, notifications from sanitary services, directions on how to pay tickets and taxes and information on road projects. Of course you can still find the usual budget hearings, minutes, municipal codes and development services information, but you can also find community connections like service clubs, newspapers and job postings. It is the official window on the Ewing community.

Don't you want to live in a progressive community? This great New Jersey home at 36 Wardman Avenue might be just the fit for you. Don't wait! Email or call me at 609-658-2612 to schedule your personal showing today.

Enhance your lifestyle with a New Jersey home

Over the weekend, I read an article in the newspaper that a $2 million winning lottery ticket was sold in Hillsborough, New Jersey. Can you imagine looking at the numbers drawn and then looking at your ticket and seeing a match? It has to be thrilling and scary all at the same time. After the initial shock wears off, the lottery winner has to think about a number of things:
  • Should I come forward immediately to claim my prize?
  • Should I consult with a financial advisor or manage my money on my own?
  • Can I continue to live here or will my phone ring off the hook with requests from people I know and don't know?
  • Do I want to quit my job or just enhance my lifestyle?

It would be fun to answer those questions, but do you know that you don't have to win the lottery in order to enhance your lifestyle? You can enhance your lifestyle today by investing in a New Jersey home. You might want a better school or bigger yard for your children. Perhaps you want more square footage for your growing family or you are ready to downsize because your family is grown and gone. Maybe you just want change because you promised yourself that your existing home was only temporary until you could move into one that really suits your sense of style.

I am here to help. As a Realtor, I am ready to help you find the answers and the solutions to all of your home investment questions. I specialize in Mercer County NJ Real Estate and the surrounding counties of Burlington, Monmouth, Middlesex, Hunterdon, and Ocean. Change your lifestyle today!

A New Home leads to New Opportunity

Ahh. The joy of a new home! Can you even begin to imagine the wonder that young Sasha and Malia Obama must be feeling after moving away from Chicago, enrolling in a new school, and then waking up every morning at perhaps the most well-known residence in the world?

Some people say that the transition must be traumatic. Some people say that kids are resilient and bounce back no matter what. Some say that they will spend so much time exploring their new surroundings that they will settle into a new routine without fully noticing that it is different.

I think all of that is true and more. A new home brings new opportunities. You get the opportunity to paint walls, hang pictures and carve out a space that is uniquely you. Your kids get to explore new biking trails and make new friends. You'll find a new grocery store, a new library and meet new neighbors. While you are discovering the newness of your surroundings, if you allow yourself the time, you will also build an even closer bond with your immediate family members as you share your new experiences and how they make you feel. When you feel sad about what you have left behind, don't be afraid to share those emotions because others could probably use a bit of nostalgia too.

Have you ever thought about what it might feel like to live in a totally new home? Not everyone can move into an historic estate like the White House, but anyone that is looking for a new residence does have the opportunity to choose between new construction or an existing house. I can help you decide which choice best fits your needs and your personality.

Take a look at the new construction available in Dogwood Meadows, Hamilton Township, Mercer County. With six models to choose from, I bet you can imagine your family building new memories in a new home. Let me help you explore the possibilities of a New Jersey home. Call (609) 658-2612 or email me today.

Invest in America, Buy in Hamilton

It's difficult to think about anything but the Inauguration today. President Obama took the oath of office with grace and dignity and challenged the citizens of the United States to face our economic, environmental, and education challenges together. With more than two million people lined up in the cold Washington D.C. Mall just to get a glimpse of this historic day and millions and millions of others watching from their homes or offices, it was possible to feel the hope that his new administration brings.

Two of the greatest challenges can be met right here at home in Mercer County. Both solutions begin with you. The first is to invest in America. Don't be afraid to buy a home. The second is to invest in education for yourself, your children and the generations to come.

This property at 26 Birkshire Road in Hamilton offers both. A great family home in a great school district. Call me today at to find out more about this New Jersey home. Office (609) 587-9300 x 403 or cell (609) 658-2612.

Burlington enjoys a day of service

According to the official government web site there were more than 150 opportunities for residents in New Jersey to volunteer for the first annual MLK Day of Service. The opportunities ranged from cleaning offices and picking up litter to book drives, art shows, prayer breakfasts and gospel singing performances.

One of the most inspired listings came from Burlington, New Jersey where Sisterhood, Inc. offered an art show for children, an oral history exhibition for adults and a spaghetti luncheon for the community.

It's activities like these that help residents take pride in their communities. For one day they stand shoulder to shoulder with their neighbors to make a difference. Some take the call to action further and volunteer with service clubs or ongoing causes.

Have you ever thought of making Burlington, New Jersey home? Check out this listing to learn more.

Finding Hope and Home in New Jersey

The Inaugural parties have begun. In two days we will have a new president, one who has become an icon for hope and change in the United States. Every president brings hope with them to the office. It is required. But some need more help than others because of circumstances beyond their control.

Are circumstances out of control for our soon-to-be-president Barack Obama? He faces wars on two fronts, economic uncertainty, catastrophic job losses, and financial bailouts of the mortgage, finance and auto industries. What could be next? Is it his responsibility to fix it all?

I don't believe so. I do believe that it is the government's responsibility to protect its citizens and in this case that does include helping average consumers work through a financial situation like they have never seen before. But aside from that, it is up to us to see ourselves through this cycle. How do we do that?

We help ourselves survive in this climate by staying positive, working hard and making wise investments. You can't make a better investment than the investment you make in your home. Your home protects you and your family, brings you comfort and respite and is the place you go to for love and warmth.

When all is crazy around us we can still find peace at home. To help us, I am making over this blog for 2009. It will be dedicated to the communities we share in and around Trenton and East Hamilton New Jersey. My goal is to share the joy of our towns with you. Together, we will discover why we call our own piece of New Jersey home.
