I have a serious case of "survivor's guilt".  There are still so many people here in Connecticut without electricity after Satruday night's freakish October snow storm.  I hate to admit this but, at my house we never lost power and I can't help feeling terribly guilty about that.   How did we get so lucky? Why couldn't more people be so fortunate?  Of course we did lose our phone, internet and cable, but how could I dare complain about that (especially since we had it back by Tuesday morning).  At least we had electricity, heat and hot water. I was on Queen Street in Southington today and I was shocked to see the number of stores and businesses that are STILL without electricity and/or phone service.  It would seem logical to me that businesses would be the FIRST to be restored.  The lo...

I'm very excited to announce the launch of my new business Staging4Smooth Transitions in Southington, Connecticut where we offer solutions for seniors who feel stuck in homes they think won't sell.  Without a doubt, seniors with homes to sell have very unique needs.... Many of the seniors I've worked with over the years have lived in the same house for decades, where they've raised families and have strong emotional ties to both their homes and neighborhoods. Most realize their houses could probably use a few updates, but they really don't want to spend a lot of money, and they're often not sure where to begin.   Countless others have accumulated A LOT of stuff.  And if they're considering a downsize move, they feel very overwhelmed by it all. Scores of others would love to be enjoying...

Even when things are bad, they're good.  That's why I love it here in Southington Connecticut. It's a wonderful community with great people and there are lots and lots of things to do. But what I appreciate most are the schools.  I have 3 kids in the Southington Public School System and I have to say that most days, I am quite impressed with how they're run.  Today a few parts of town were experiencing flooding issues due to yesterday's rain and all the rapidly melting snow.  Dr. Joseph Erardi, the Superintendent of Southington Schools, was kind enough to notifiy all the parents of the potential for delays the school buses might experience due to a few roads being closed.  It was comforting to be assured that our children would be delivered home safely.      Southington has over 45,000 ...

New Standard Equipment for Property Inspectors - Snowshoes in Connecticut!? This winter has required some drastic measures in Connecticut!  This morning on Facebook, a home inspector out of Southington, Paul Peshka of N-Spect Property Inspections, posted his feet in snow shoes!  Can't get around a house without them lately!  I have an inspection in Bristol with Paul on Thursday, so I will get to see how proficient he is at using them!  I could certainly have used snowshoes yesterday when I was trying to hang a sign rider on one of my for sale signs--climbed over a drift and sank in to my waist!  As Paul heads out to all parts of Connecticut, I am sure he will have some great stories to tell of inspections over the past weeks!   View Larger Map
