          A client of mine purchased his first home today in Crown Pointe in Newtown, PA.  I had met him at an open house of mine, one Sunday, in Crown Pointe.  He contemplated looking in some other areas, but eventually came back to Crown Pointe.  We took a look at all of the condos currently on the market and we found one that needs some sweat equity, but we could get it for a great price which was just what he wanted so he could put his own style in.  So, we settled today and he is taking advantage of the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit so not only is he a proud new home owner, but he'll get $8,000 back from the government next year to help cover the costs of the cosmetic upgrades he'll do over the next few weeks.  Not a bad deal!  If you, or someone you know has been thinking aout ...

Philadelphia Magazine just released an article "10 Awesome Neighborhoods to Call Home" and Newtown's on the list!  Not really a surprise to me since I grew up in Newtown Borough.  The article mentions the Newtown Theatre the oldest in the country which is also where I had my first date.  They talk about the new project at the old ACME.  I actually remember being woken up before school to run to the store for milk, eggs, and bread for my Mom.  Growing up in Newtown was great although I didn't appreciate it as much back then, but looking back I miss it and hope someday to move back.  I'm only over in Holland and I work in Newtown and visit my folks who still live in the borough, but it's not enough I miss waking up and being able to walk everywehere I need to go.  Newtown is ranked very h...

Clients of mine in Richboro called the other day to say they are out of town and coming back later in the week with their 3 kids.  They were concerned about what they would face coming home to a snow laden driveway and were hoping I could recommend someone to clear their driveway before hand.  Of course I know someone who can help!  Kevin Bethman's Snow Removal located in Newtown, PA #215-968-3712.  I worked for Kevin and his family at Lin Bethman's Auto Service in Newtown throughout High School, and later, while in College, I helped Kevin with his lawn care business so I know I can put my name to his for any snow removal job you might have.   So if you're fed up with digging out the driveway give Kevin a call #215-968-3712.
