As 2008 has comes to an end, I realize how fortunate I have been to be associated with an outstanding Real Estate Office.
This past year has been a challenging year, but it has also been a year to remember, as Century 21 V.J.F. Realty celebrated it’s 30th year with Century 21…
attended functions and classes…
Visited many Realtor Open Houses …
Graciously accepted Awards and Celebrated the Holidays!
and listed and sold many homes despite the slow market …
I look forward to the New Year of 2009 – and wish you and your family the very best!

The Weather Channel announced that we may have snow in the forecast for Christmas! I’m hoping it will be just enough to cover everything with a Frosty White Blanket, but not enough to interfere with all the Holiday Travelers visiting family. We know that Santa can get through any snow storm – but unfortunately, none of us have a sleigh!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it SNOW – and it did!

The kids were excited, thinking they were going to have a snow day – or at least a delay. Fortunately, the snow plows were out – plowing and sanding – making our roads as safe as possible – peace of mind for me since my husband leaves at 4:30 in the morning to make his way into New York City.

I feel like a kid again when I go Holiday Shopping at the Danbury Fair Mall in Danbury, CT.
All the decorations are up and Santa’s Tracking Station await to take photos of your little ones with Santa. Throughout the holiday season, there are community performances from local schools and organizations performing holiday entertainment - check the guest services desk for a schedule. For more information from NewsTimes.com on the malls special events <CLICK>.
The Mall, Connecticut’s largest shopping mall, has approximately 200 retailers along with lots of yummy eateries. For a treat for all ages, take a ride on the malls famous carousel. The large department stores are Macy’s, JCPenney, Sears and Lord & Taylors . A few other stores are: GAP, Old Navy, Coach, PacSun, Radio Shack, Foot Locker, KB Toys, Apple Store, Yankee Candle, H & M and many, many more located on 2 levels. For on-line printable coupons <CLICK>.
The other day I was asked by a client, where could he search on line for ALL currently listed homes for sale. One of the Real Estate sites I mentioned was TRULIA Real Estate Search (click).
You input what state, town and price of home your interested in – and VOILA! Oogles and oodles of HOMES! You can search from the comfort of your own home – during a break at work – or even on your phone!
Then, when you find a few potential listings – call a REALTOR for more information, set up an appointment to view some of these properties and your on your way to purchasing a home!
If you need assistance in Westchester, Putnam or Dutchess Counties in New York – or – Fairfield and parts of Litchfield Counties in Connecticut – feel free to contact me – I’d be happy to walk you down the path of HOMEOWNERSHIP!

As my daughter and I drove through our town the other day – New Fairfield, CT- I Ooooo’d and Aaaaa’d over all the lights and decorations – “What a wonderful time of the year!” I shouted. My daughter then said, “It would be REALLY nice if it snowed.”
True – SNOW is great – for sledding, skiing, making snowmen and having snowball fights! AND - while is falling, it’s SPECTACULAR!
Clearly Ambiguous – Flickr.com
My daughter got her wish – today, when we woke, we had about one inch of crisp white snow! Beautiful!…until it was time to clean off the cars, plow the driveway and shovel the paths!!

halima ahkdar – Flickr.comFor homeowners selling their home, or buyers who have just purchased their home – YELLOW is a popular color. It’s BOLD, BRIGHT and LUSCIOUS – says HGTV. Try a Hip, Fresh Yellow color in the bathroom - or use YELLOW as an accent piece!
So… Follow the YELLOW Brick Road – and have fun!
