My Life as a Realtor ~
Today is Realtor Open House Day. Carolyn was so kind to set up all the homes we were going to view – along with a Pre-Revolutionary 1732 Homestead that was not on the Open House list, but we were very anxious to pre-view for potential clients. But first, before our fun afternoon, I went to the New Fairfield Post Office, then the New Fairfield Hardware store – Joe needed some caulking for repairs he’s doing to our front doors.

My Life as a Realtor ~
One evening appointment today – in New Milford - near Candlewood Lake. We were followed around by 2 kitties that seem to have the run of the house. Funny that my daughter Sara, sketched this picture of a kitty just this morning -
My “To Do” list is getting long…er – need to get motivated and start doing things – I do love crossing off things I’ve done. It’s great seeing the list get smaller and I enjoy the sense of accomplishment. It also motivates the kids to help, they too enjoy crossing off the list. Here’s just a few items for today that I added to my everyday chores…
- Clean shelf and nic-nacs to make into our new cookbook shelf ~ CHECK
- Go through mail – get rid of junk mail – organize bills that will be paid this week ~ CHECK
- Clean out my pocketbook ~ CHECK
- Wash all fruit trays and rearrange on breakfast bar ~ CHECK
Before my appointment, I went to the office – Century 21 VJF Realty – had an Open House today in Brewster, NY - A home with 3.75 acres and zoned for 2 horses ~ CLICK ~ Eva and I also viewed another home in Brewster - a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that’s aggressively priced ~ CLICK ~
After Open Houses, I received a call – a new client looking for a rental – we’ll be going out tomorrow since she has only 2 months left on her current rental.
Stopped at the bank – then off to A & P in Brewster, NY - flew home to drop off the groceries – picked up my clients to view the home in New Milford – home again to make dinner – chicken cutlets, baked ziti and salad- Sara and Amanda helped alot with dinner, dishes and laundry. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be in bed by 2 am… it’s now almost 1:55am and I have just 1 more thing on my list!
This past Wednesday, Realtor Open House Day took me to 3 beautiful homes - the 1st in New Fairfield, CT - the 2nd in Holmes, NY and the 3rd in Patterson, NY. It was a beautiful day, we had great food, good conversation and 3 more homes I’d like to share with you and my clients!

During a Realtor Open House Day, I visited an historic home in Carmel, NY. Built in the 1760′s, this home is loaded with charm and of course… history. Everything from the architecture to the furniture and decorative items - including this antique telephone, which brought me back in time. Or so I could wonder what it was like…
This week for Realtor Open House Day, we viewed a piece of history! Originally built in 1760 and added onto throughout the 1800′s, this home in Carmel, NY has approximately 5,700 square feet, 4 fireplaces, ornate moldings and wide plank floors.

Here is a sneak peek -
If these walls could talk…
In Westchester County last Thursday, Carolyn – an associate Realtor in my office - and I saw some magnificent homes!
Our first home, currently on the market for $12,500,000 in BEDFORD - NY,was an 1927 Georgian Manor house built with original bricks from a 16th Century English Estate. With over 23 acres, a pool, barn, twin gate houses and a multi car garage – we were in awe while viewing every room, including the maids quarters, attic and we even dared to view the basement! All the while wondering – Oh! – If These Walls Could Talk.
We moved onto a lovely Country House in POUND RIDGE, NY. This home was built in 1958 and designed by Livingston Elder. With over 2 acres, a pool, fruit trees and overlooking the Ward Pound Ridge Preserve, making this home a private oasis. It is currently on the market for $1,395,000.
Last, but not least, we viewed another home in Pound Ridge, The Byron Stratton House - a Historical Pound Ridge Landmark. This Colonial, with over 6,000 square feet on over 6 acres, was originally buit in Connecticut, then brought over and rebuilt in it’s current position in 1934. With 6 working fireplaces, a library, conservatory, gymnasium, pool, gazebo and pond - this home is a true gem. It is currently listed for $3,999,900.
Another wonderful Realtor Open House Day. Carolyn and I made our way from East Fishkill, NY to Carmel, NY – leaving the best for last!
The Historic Fowler House, built in 1739, is a 5,410 square foot Farm House on 1.460 acres – holds 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 8 fireplaces and loads of history. Much of this homes original features still stand – from the trim work, windows, stagecoach mounting block and it’s very own ice house.
I wish I could go back in time! Visiting these historic homes through out up-state New York lets me feel like I am!
Own a piece of History! Call for more information on this home and many other historic homes.

It was a beautiful day, and the first home on our agenda was in Kent, NY – moving on to a new 55 and Better community, currently in construction in Carmel, NY and then – without even knowing - we made our way to Patterson, NY to view an older home – which is always at the top of our must see list.
The Federal Style House, built in 1795, is owned by an Academy Award Winning Actor. The wide-plank floor boards, the numerous fireplaces, the architect throughout the home was mesmerizing. I always find myself wondering what it must have been like living here over 100 years ago - no electric, running water, telephone – no television!
In the Patterson Historical Society Book, where this home is featured, Carolyn read that a previous owner would bring her cow into her room at night to sleep. I couldn’t help but think, “If These Walls Could Talk”.
The listing agent took us on a tour of the home from top to bottom and into the barn-turned-guest-house overlooking the 41 plus acres estate - BEAUTIFUL!
Oh, and I was also able to view “The Oscar” sitting in the corner of a room – the cherry on top of a perfect day – my day… in the Life as a Realtor.
WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?
Every Wednesday is Realtor Open House Day here in Putnam County, New York. As a Realtor, Open House day is informative and fun! We view new listings and meet each listing agent. We also have the opportunity to get to know the area the home is located in and network with other agents.
Viewing my office’s own listings is important for us to be prepared for buyer calls. It is impossible for a listing agent to input every bit of information about a home into the listing sheet. Therefore, the listing agent shows us around, pointing out updates and facts about the home. This also helps if your an agent searching for a buyer who is viewing homes on line, viewing photos is never the same as actually being in the home – especially if there are little or bad photos!
Agents will host their Realtor Open House by serving lunch, dessert or give a bottle of wine. They also pass out a listing sheet on the property and answer any questions that we may have.
On our last Open House day, we had beautiful weather and I was able to take of few photos on our journey from one house to another. This photo was taken at Pegasus Farm - a Therapeutic Horse Facility in Brewster, NY. The other Realtors watched – and laughed – from the car as I attempted to take this photo – this cutie was very big and very intimidating!
