In January we raised $200!

One of our aims this year is to make a donation of $100 with each home sale to Surrey Services for Seniors. So in January we raised $200.

Sold sign

We obviously want to raise much more than that during 2018. So we want to encourage you to list your home with us this year, there is a significant lack of inventory in our area and plenty of home buyers looking for homes. Many of those currently on the market have been on for longer than 100 days and buyers are waiting patiently for home owners to list.

Likewise, if you are looking for a home, let us represent you as your fiduciary buyers' agent, putting your interests ahead of everyone's including our own. If you want to know more about this, let us know.

So, if you live in the Tredyffrin Easttown area, consider inviting us in to give you a competitive market analysis. Yes, you read that right, competitive because you do want to sell your home and don't want it sitting there for  more than 100 days being used as a comparison property with plenty of showings but no offers, right?

We aim to make sure your home is priced competitively and we will guide you what needs to be done in preparation to listing to make it so. We will disucss with you our individual marketing plan, the likely buyer, and how we will target such a buyer. Then when it sells we make a donation to Surrey Services for Seniors.

Not every agent is as specific. Many simply use the three P's system, Put up a sign, Put it in the MLS and Pray! If you are happy with that then fine, but if you think there might be a difference in getting a competitive market analysis and a personalized marketing plan then contact us today! You will also be helping out Surrey Services for Seniors as well.

Raising money for a great cause is always a good thing!  Last year I thought I needed a new iPad, but then I decided that I really didn't need it, I just wanted it.  So, I sent the money that I would have spent on it to a family that was truly in need.

Nick, hope many Sellers list with you so your charity benefits from you being busy!

Nick and Trudy,

Congratulations on raining $200!  And  I am certain you will end up raising a substantial number of $$$$ by the end of the year.

I absolutely LOVE the cause, Nick & hope to see that number at least doubled this month!! 

Congratulations on the sales and many kudos to you for your work on this project. You're after my own heart here - I love seniors and would love to see better care for them across the board.

Happy Friday!

Hi Nick and Trudy

What a wonderful cause to contribute to, and an admirable goal to focus on. I hope you exceed your expectations!

Nick and Trudy wishing you that you raise 10,000 dollars in 2018... on a side note I give a percentage of every commission ....and that is taken off the top in my office and then I give another percentage to my favorite charities...hence I am all for your kindness and gift...Endre

Shahar Hillel we like to help the local community as much as we can.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel that is our aim, so hope you are right.

Debe Maxwell, CRS Seniors are not that well supported, lots of help for children and others but Seniors somehow rank lower in people's thoughts. 

I hope we do as well Jeff Dowler 

Endre Barath, Jr. that would make a wonderful year. With the antique show I run for them we raise about $130,000 each year, so hope this will be a good addition to that. Was the Old Forge Realty company tied to an area of that name?
