Wickford RI Winter Scene | Ice Boating Only There is nothing like the RI coastal real estate scenes in and around Wickford.  The beauty of this historic waterfront Rhode Island village continues to amaze me at all times of the year.  This winter has been brutal to the small businesses trying to bring shoppers out to their stores....whether it is the cold winds or intense snowstorms, most of us are now counting days to spring!  Hard to believe I would say that since winter can be a beautiful time for the landscape here. It is just so nice to see the green of the lawn against the vivid blues of Wickford Harbor go hand in hand.  Right now the blue and white combination needs to be appreciated here.  Some people are braving the waters and enjoying the ice boating now which I can not fathom!...

Another Pending North Kingstown RI Home Ready to Close This North Kingstown home is ready to close, past the pending stage and home buyers can not wait to get down to updating this sweet 3 bedroom home on a spacious lot.  North Kingstown RI real estate does not come cheap.  Finding this home at the right price is the challenge that brought these buyers to me. After working with two other real estate agents who did not do their due diligence on potential home buys, their father referred them to me.  Does Dad know how to refer well?  They have been a great pair and we found the right home, where they wanted, and at a price they could afford.  We took the negotiating of price to the edge and the buyers were so thankful for pushing it forward.  Timing was right all around and this seller wa...

What Befalls a Realtor in Fall ... If the world was a stage and I were an actor...feeling like Shakespeare today I must say because what may befall one in this season of fall is a good sign!  Not only was an associate having extraordinary listing luck today but I as well in this RI coastal real estate venue..   It was a phone call to say that this couple was moving in with their father since he said he would not move out of his house.  He needed care and attention and he had the space for them to move in.  Being prepared in all aspects of the aging process is so important so that all the family is on the same page.  So can you come and look at our North Kingstown home to sell it?   Sweet ranch that was being cleared out as they moved out. Analysis done by me and price agreed upon with t...
