   I am embarrassed… I was driving by Walter’s and miracle upon miracles, there was no long line… and my tummy cried out  “No brekkies/no lunch”… (it was 11:10 am….- hey no comments..). SO, I had to stop by and purchase some nutrition (I heard they dip their delicious hot dogs in butter.. oh my!) for myself and my office brethren (all hardworking and those phones do not stop ringing –  it is Sotheby’s after all!)… What was the harm in a hot dog (well unfortunately who can eat only one… but another story…).. If you live in the area of 10543, then you have heard of the legendary “Walter’s.” It might be a roadside “store” (although there are benches in the rear of the building), but the food is highly sought-after, and I must admit, the hot dogs are crispy (cut in half), the buns are warme...

   If you don’t live here, then please know that Mamaroneck  is a vibrant town, located just 40 minutes or so from New York City (  there are Express trains!), and there are always community oriented events to embrace the community, making it a community. Today was the SOWE Music Festival (Southern Westchester Musical Festival)… SO many bands/groups,  and as I passed by on my way to appointments ( I love real estate but I would have loved to have been able to pop by this event) , I could hear the great music pulsating, and seemingly playing to a  very appreciative great audience. There were great food trucks…  (of course)… Vendors ( naturally..), and there was an ever ending musical feast to appreciate…  What makes Mamaroneck great? Events just like this one! Mamaroneck is GREAT!

   So many different restaurants to choose from! When you are in the mood for French cuisine, try  a nice little restaurant in Mamaroneck called Le Provencal Bistro. There is a very nice lunch, brunch or dinner menu to choose from, and when I was last there, I decided upon the sautéed liver with a truly delicious balsamic sauce, mashed potatoes and haricot verts with a hint of garlic. Bon Appetit! Located at 436 Mamaroneck Avenue.Mamaroneck NY 10543 , Phone # 914 777-2324914 777-2324 Mamaroneck is GREAT!

    Molly Spillane’s  isn’t just for burgers and fries! You can also buy a nice salad as I decided on the other day. I chose the Tossed Avocado & Turkey Salad, and it was quite tasty. The fresh turkey breast, avocadoes, crispy bacon, apples, dried cranberries, romaine lettuce and tomatoes was served with a light mustard vinaigrette dressing.  With the lovely seasonal weather, it was the perfect location for a light luncheon in a nice setting.     Molly Spillane’s is located at : 211 Mamaroneck Ave. ,  914 899-3130914 899-3130 Mamaroneck is GREAT

    I love oysters! SO, it was just a matter of time, before I popped into Mamaroneck’s  Northeast Oyster Bar , 152 Mamaroneck Avenue, 10543 – (914) 304-3313(914) 304-3313) to sample some.. I decided on sampling 3 each of the Pickle Points,  Malpeque and Daisy Bay Oysters all from Prince Edward Island..  all delicious … The Northeast Oyster Bar is small, and it is just the bar, the oysters and a cheese plate if desired but if you love oysters, and you are with good friends – what more do you need? Mamaroneck is GREAT!

  You had to have been there to appreciate it.  The weather was perfect, the homes spectacular, the organizational skills of Carolyn Fugere, the Manager of the Larchmont Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s Brokerage were sublime, and it was undoubtedly a wonderful success. 6 waterfront homes were offered on the networking tour which was limited to our Westchester, Connecticut and Manhattan Brokerages. Limos were ordered, the event was co-sponsored by  the Findlay Luxury Moving Company,  Citibank,  and it was catered by Corner Stone Catering from Rye. There was wonderful jazz music (the perfect accompaniment) performed by the Larchmont Music Academy Jazz Ensemble, and of course volunteers galore from our Rye and Larchmont offices to both chauffeur guests from the trains, in between the  homes, and to...

    The Mamaroneck Avenue Elementary School  continues to excel!  Not only that but Mamaroneck was named one of New York's best towns in which to reside.  There are currently 15 single family homes available to purchase as of June 30th, 2015 ranging in list price of $279,900 to $6,495,000, 13 properties in contract ranging in price from $$595,000 to$1,710,000, and there were 19 sold properties ranging in price from $345,000 to $3,535,000.  The Median Sales price was $732,000 with an average price per square foot of $333.21. It is so obvious (as with all of the reports I have written) that the spring market portrays higher sales prices. The sales price to original list price was 96.50%.   Mamaroneck is GREAT!

          With the Valedictorian from the Rye Neck High School attending Duke University  in the fall, and the Salutatorian attending the New York University Stern School of Business, it is obvious why parents and students alike are liking the Rye Neck School District.

      Oh if  only there was more time! I  had scheduled an open house for clients that afternoon, and so had not realized the treat I would be missing had I stayed at the 2014 SoWe (Southern Westchester) Food & Wine Festival. It was held in Mamaroneck Harbor on Saturday, September 20th ( in Scarsdale on the 21st),  but I did have the opportunity to help set up our booth, and stay from 10 -12 noon or so.. At the stroke of noon, I meandered around the stalls, and caught sight of  Graham Elliot conducting a food presentation (Kung Pao Chicken). Houlihan Lawrence was a sponsor, and I understand the afternoon crowd was huge so a great success! Westchester is GREAT!

           First time buyers are sometimes always a little confused with Rye Neck.  First they think it to be an area, and so it takes a little explaining to inform them that it is a school district within an area….and “oh my goodness, a school district that was just ranked per the Annual U.S. World News Report as being one of the best High Schools in the nation.” “Rye Neck was the ninth-highest-ranked school in Westchester County and 39th in New York. Nationally, Rye Neck was ranked 235th. ” ( Mamaroneck Larchmont Daily Voice – Eric Gendron). Today’s buyers are searching for that newly renovated or built home… They would rather spend more and find a new home as opposed to buying and renovating one. If a home must be renovated, then price is tantamount to success.  Larchmont is very ‘ho...

As I was driving though the Shore Acres area this past Friday on my way to visit some beautiful homes  on the broker’s tour , I came across a deer. It is obvious why he/she was visiting too, it is a lovely community in which to live! The Shore Acres area has so much to offer. Many of the 200 or so homes there have deeded rights to shares in the Shore Acre Point Corporation (SAPC.org) which has a beach, swimming pools,  moorings for larger sail and power boats, as well as boat slips. There are additional fees for clubhouse rentals and for dock usage in addition to the yearly club fees. The club has seasonal events such as in the spring with a cocktail party, Memorial and Labor Day parties, a Father’s Day fishing derby. as well as a great July 4th Barbecue with wonderful views of the Fire...

Mamaroneck, 10543 is located just north of Larchmont, offers its own train station, has a waterfront, spectacular fireworks on July 4th, and wonderful parades during the year. One of my children's favorites was always the Fireman's Parade around July 4th with a Fireman's Carnival and Fair. Mamaroneck also covers properties close to the Village, some properties close to the water but not on the water, and properties close to Scarsdale. There are currently 23 properties available for sale ranging in price from $189,000 to $6,800,000. There are 5 properties in Conditional contract, 2 pending, and 25 properties have sold in the past 6 months in Mamaroneck, 10543. The Median sales price is 699,000 and the price per square foot is $330.91, but this would vary based on street. There were 4 pro...

Rye Neck isn’t an area but rather a school district located in Mamaroneck, and parts of Greenhaven, Rye depending upon the property lines. The Shore Acres area which offer the Shore Acres Point Pool and beach are also located in the Rye Neck School District. As a result of the varied locations, prices of homes differ. I have taken some wonderful sunset photos whilst showing homes in the Rye Neck School District. There are currently 33 available homes on the market in the Rye Neck School District ranging in price from $575,000 to $2,995,000. There are 3 homes in Conditional Contract , 7 homes that are pending, and 40 homes that have sold during these past 6 months ranging from $939,000 to $1,680,000. The Median price was $904,500, and price per square foot was $433.84.  Mamaroneck is GRE...

Its' been a long time since I posted on this site. I've actually been very busy taking photos and the result has been less time for posting photos online.   I am going to try and play catch-up from the spring shortly, but right now its the day before Independence Day - and I thought Old Glory in all its glory was the order of the day. This was a photo that I took last year but never processed until this year.  It needed some retouching due to the angle that I took the picture and at first I rejected it in favor of another version that I posted a long time ago.   The other photo was easier to process, but this one had more character. For those who don't know, this flag flies over the town of Mamaroneck every year on Mamaroneck Ave.  I don't know any other town in Westchester that flies t...

       THE Parade is tonight at 7 p.m. My children when younger loved this event every year..  The Fireman’s Parade can also be viewed on local television.. It is a great time to see our local fireman dressed in their different uniforms, regalia, the marching bands, the history, the older fire trucks, the newer fire trucks.. It is just such a joyous event for the young, and for a family outing … and it all  free!   “Approximately 45 fire departments and companies from New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut, Westchester, and Putnam Counties.” The parade starts at the Mamaroneck Elementary School and the  marches to Harbor Island Park.. where the Fireman’s Carnival has been in full swing since June 28th, and runs through to July 6th, 2013. Mamaroneck is  GREAT!

The short answer to this is "Yes." Yes, you can install hardwood on top of tile (or natural stone) provided that the tile is intact/good condition (i.e. not coming up/breaking apart), the tile is relatively flat and the hardwood is an engineered hardwood, and given that there is enough clearance in height.     There are 3 ways to install hardwood flooring...and one of them will work on top of tile flooring: 1. Nail down. This requires a plywood sub-floor which is 3/4" thick...or some similar wood surface that is equivalent and has enough structure to secure the nails. The method will obviously not work on top of tile.     2. Glue down. This usually will not work on top of tile either as you need a smooth and somewhat porous surface to the adhesive to adhere to.     3. Float the hardwood...

What are the advantages of Oak Hardwood Floors for your home in Mamaroneck NY? Oak is the most popular species of hardwood flooring here in Mamaroneck NY. If you see hardwood in a home, chances are it's oak. Why is oak hardwood flooring so popular? 1. Oak flooring is very affordable since it's grown in the US and is  abundant. Oak hardwood tends to be less expensive compared to the other species (such as maple, hickory, brazilian cherry, etc). And, in Mamaroneck NY, it's very readily available to get unfinished oak hardwood flooring. Often, unfinished oak flooring (that is refinished and stained on-site) is a bit less expensive than prefinished oak, especially as you go wider in the plank size.     2. Oak flooring is the standard of hardness, and oak tends to hide scratches well. On the...
