But the seat of Westchester County is no slouch in the jobs department, with a bunch of large corporate offices (including the newly refurbished and...

Facts have never been as intriguing to me as people, and their personal experience has. I am a curious person, and understanding another's circumstances fully paints a more complete and memorable picture. For several years now Doug has wanted to see the WWII vintage planes at the traveling Wings ...

Yes, sometimes life has a way of working itself out and a series of mishaps can result in something positive.  I had a couple of incidents that really bummed me out; but in the end, they've led me to a better place.   So, 2 weeks ago, I got my new T-shirts with my new "The Flooring Girl" logo.  T...

A few days ago had started writing about a project I've been watching, and was now going to be participating in. The 1950s ranch house at 64 Holbrooke Road in White Plains has been transformed into an eco-friendly model of green building, and is going for Gold LEED certification, I'm helping styl...

Phil Faranda and I are going to host another Active Rain meet up in Westchester.  This will be in White Plains since it's centrally located.  We thought this would be a good location as we can eat outside, if the weather is good, or eat inside if it's rainy...remember the first one we had here?  ...

Over the winter of 2009-20010 homeowner Gerry Angel paid about $1000.00 per month to heat her 1850 square-foot ranch. This coming winter she's thinking around $100.00 a month for her newly re-designed, now 2900 square foot house. Maybe. Today starts a mini-series about a local project that is ver...

A few months ago I wrote a blog at the request of the White Plains Beautification Foundation.  They were raising money for a new Cedar of Lebanon evergreen tree for the Holocaust Memorial Garden.   Although I’m very familiar with downtown White Plains, I had never actually seen the garden.   Loca...

About a week ago I wrote a short blog about the White Plains business district.  Many people don’t understand what a large commuter population White Plains NY plays host to each day of the work week.

Many people think of White Plains mostly as a either a place to live or a place to go for fine dining and first-class shopping.  However, White Plains has  two populations.  A live-in population that is a bit less than 60,000 and  a much larger commuter population in the downtown area.  In truth ...

Curb appeal is not a trivial issue.  Buyers often decide within seconds whether they have any interest in your home at all, and be it rational or not, that’s the reality. Let’s face it, between photographing homes and selling them, I spend a great deal of time looking at homes.  I spend a great d...

That's what my customer from last night told me.   Yesterday, my office manager begged me to take an appointment.  She knew it was a crazy week and I already had 2 more appointments more than what I like to have (plus have been spending time catching up after my computer crashed).  She said it wa...

A while back I wrote about a local real estate agent who got left high and dry by a contractor.  I helped "bail her" out by finishing up her carpet job as the previous contractor left in the middle and stole some of her stuff.    It was a very small project that was a lot of work trying to track ...

It was a cruel twist of irony that this shutterbug was trapped indoors during the glorious weather last week taking her real estate CE classes.  Though the classes were terrific, weather-wise this would have been a better week to be indoors!   But I was able to take advantage of one of my lunch p...
