I’m a girl who loves getting lost. Road trips and Sunday drives are a favorite pastime. They help you discover your own backyard. Traveling expands your horizon but rambling in your own state can be just as fun.
Fall is the perfect time to enjoy apple picking and hiking. Melick’s Farm is just one of my favorites in Hunterdon. More than apples they also sell their adult hard cider. My current favorite is the Jersey Ginger. If you want to hike Hacklebarney State Park is just enough without feeling like you will get lost. You will be amazed at the beauty of this park. Just outside the park entrance you will find Hacklebarney Farm with tasty cider doughnuts and more.
Drive south down RT29 or RT 32 on the Delaware River and you will arrive in New Hope/Lambertville. There are many shops and restaurants to explore. My favorite for lunch with a river view is The Landing.
Get out and drive!
Happy Fall All! Fall and Winter are great times to sell and buy a home! People are still retiring, downsizing and upsizing. There may be less inventory but the buyers and sellers are still out there! Contact me to sell or buy NOW! There are so many reasons to live in Hunterdon County……Pumpkin ice cream is just one! 🙂
Every now and again there is a place that is more than just somewhere to live. This charming property is one of them. This farm conversion building has stunning heirloom plantings and is what the quiet part of NJ is all about. Flat and pastoral with both decks and patios. One of the patios is next to a small pond with frogs. Close to commute corridors in Hunterdon county. Live in your investment and walk around the corner for mail…the building has a tiny small town US Post Office attached.

There are many symbols of fortune and luck through out time. From four leaf clovers to horseshoes and rabbits feet. Did you know there was one to sell houses? A small statue of St. Joseph is sold both online and in the local real estate office. Some agents swear by his selling power. It is to be buried in the front yard and that is supposed to bring a buyer. I have also seen homeowners purchase one and place it on the mantle of their home. There is never any harm in a little wishing for luck. Wishing needs to also include all the other details and great marketing to get a property sold. Want to sell your home for top dollar? Call me 732-735-0535 for your Hunterdon or Warren County real estate needs. Our office is conveniently located in beautiful Clinton NJ.
Thank You 2016 for all the great clients and agents I worked with to make home ownership and sales happen! I ended the year with a 42 days on market to SOLD average and a 1% SOLD to list price average. 2017 home buyers and sellers I welcome you to see what BHHS NJ Properties agents do differently. My passion for property is rooted in my background of interior design. I can always see the potential. Making the right design decisions when getting ready to sell is key. Sometimes it is painting and other times just a small bit of rearranging. If it is more than that I have long standing contractor relationships to get you ready. Outstanding photography is another part of the team approach I use. A midwestern sensibility and laughter can help work thru any buying or selling decision. I am also a CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert). Being professionally involved is truly the difference. Knock Knock…. Agent Amy is at your door and at your service!

Cute dog model Rudy loved working with pet friendly agent Amy. His home was dreamy and went under contract in 7 days with multiple offers. It sold at asking price and is the new neighborhood record. This is what happens when you work with a professional agent. When sellers and their agent are a team great things happen!
The above link is just one of the reasons a seller might not take the highest offer. When working with a seller many things come into play other than money. Often the terms of the offer are just as important. When can the buyer close? Do they have a home to sell in order to purchase? Has a buyer professed a love for the home that makes a seller feel good about it? Is the money down significant if it is not all cash?
Just one more reason to work with a professional agent selling or buying. Professional agents help guide you to the best decision.

A funny quick bit about Feng Shui and what it means to you!
It is a philosophical Chinese method of placement. It is both how a house sits in a landscape as well as the objects and flow inside a home. It can be as basic as it’s meaning of wind (Feng) and water (Shui) or the flow of what are life essentials around the globe. Wind and water mean life and their energies bring life force and harmony or chi.
What does it mean in the west? A great western example is of the American garage. Built to hold a car and yet when it is raining and snowing and you are carrying groceries in to the house and getting wet. Why…. because the garage is so disorganized that a car does not fit in it. The solution to change your chi here is to clean the garage and use it as intended. Another example is furniture placement. The coffee table that you hate and always bang your shin on. Move or get rid of it. There is no harmony in a bruised shin.
Taking care of the things around you so that they take care of you is the most basic drill down of the concept. Clean out the basement and make room for the kids to play. Have less clutter so that your life functions in a way that makes you function better. Functioning better by being on time and being more relaxed and prepared for your day is a win in any method be it Chinese or common sense.
