‘Tis The Season To Be…Moving

Dear Friend,

Here’s a quick note to let you know how I can help you or anyone you feel comfortable introducing me to.
Spring is upon us, and regardless of what’s going on in the economy that means it’s moving time. School is ending. Vacation time is coming. The weather is nicer. It’s generally just a good time to get out and look at homes.

So, the next time you’re in a conversation with a friend, family member or neighbor and they mention that they are thinking of buying a new home, take out your cell phone, look up my number 609-338-3773 and call me immediately. I’ll send you a certificate to give them a free subscription to my HomeFinder Newsletter, packed with valuable home-buying tips such as “How Do Sellers Price Their Homes And How Much Should I Offer?” and “Six Signs That Could Mean Expensive (Hidden) Trouble.”

P.S. Every home buyer should know about the six signs that could mean expensive trouble. Be sure to give me a call the next time someone you know is talking about buying a home and we can help them avoid some expensive mistakes.

John Wins Most Patient Seller Award For The Sale Of His Somers Point House

John wins my most patient seller award!  We were under contract in November and did not close until the last day of March.  In this case the buyer was to receive $50,000 from the Sandy First Time Home Buyer Grant.  After months of waiting, wondering and delays, we finally got approval and sold his house.

With this in mind John, was calm, calculated and was able to put things in perspective.  Throughout the process I consulted with John on where we were and what options we had.  I helped him evaluate those options and ultimately he chose to be patient and it paid off.

Thank you John and best wishes!

The Walk – Tanger Outlets, Clarks Bostonian Store, Atlantic City NJ, Winter Visit

atlantic-city-sky clarks-outlet

Last Sunday my wife and I took a trip to Atlantic City Tanger Outlets The Walk.  After some miserable cold weather it was a mild day and great to get out and walk around.  One of my favorite stores is the Clarks shoes outlet.  They have the most comfortable dress shoes I’ve ever warn.  I like the lightweight shoe they make that is like wearing a sneaker.  I’m on my 6th or 7th pair now.

My friend Caesar manages the store and we had a great conversation while there.  He provides great service because he wants to, not because he has to.  I found this refreshing to hear from someone , like me, who is passionate about what they do.

So if you are in need of shoes try Clarks Outlet at The Walk.  Tell Caesar I sent you.  By the way… they are having a fantastic sale right now.  You’ll be glad you stopped in.  It’s well worth the visit.  Best wishes, Matt
