How fitting that 24 hours after I post about the wonderful winter here in the Poconos, I find myself unable to leave my house this morning due to school closings, snow and ice fall...well that's ok because I had an opportunity to scan through my TiVo's recording of the Grammy's last night. It's always nice to know a little about the latest buzz instead of being days behind! I don't think I could sit in the audience through such a long awards show although I wouldn't mind the opportunity to see such a dazzling array of artists perform live! I absolutely love the collaborations between artists that could be considered "unusual". My favorite was Lady GaGa and Tony Bennet ~ what a class act, so much fun to see such different styles blend to produce a fabulous rendition of a wonderful song. It's been said that Tony is "taming GaGa" although I love her wild style and spirit! Then there are "questionable moments" that leave me wondering how celebrities of such caliber can possibly STILL be so attention starved? I refer to the antics of Kanye and Madonna. In any case, in honor of the Grammys, I would like to share a fun side of RE/MAX. Enjoy!

I think it is safe to say that if you live in the Northeast, more specifically, in a rural area like the Pocono Mountains, you must resolve yourself to deal with a hearty winter season. I've heard many people who live around these parts (or in nearby New York and New Jersey) say that they hate the winter and plan to move where there is no such thing someday. This is not so easily done by most, with their livelihoods, family and friends preventing them from moving to warmer climates. I happen to love and appreciate all four seasons , so I don't believe that I can do without any of them completely. Perhaps it would be nice to have a shorter winter season, but that isn't going to happen anytime soon (or ever for th

What does the date 7-7-07 and VEGAS have in common? Well, besides a possible connection of 7-7-7 with a big win on a slot machine in VEGAS, the anniversary of my joining RE/MAX of the Poconos was 7-7-07 and the broker/owner of our office has just announced a fabulous incentive he intends to extend to the real estate professionals in my office if we meet the goal he has set forth for us in 2015. Sure, like all sales goals, there is a dollar figure involved, but what is behind that figure is so much more than a number...the number is just a "fact" with no feelings. The REAL deal behind that number is the strengthening of the financial picture for countless home buyers and sellers, who placed the purchase or sale of their biggest investment with a RE/MAX agent from our office. It represents the hours, days, weeks, months and sometimes years that one of my fellow real estate professionals from RE/MAX of the Poconos worked with a buyer or seller client to help them achieve their goals and move on to another chapter of their lives. That figure is proof that RE/MAX is the sign you want and the agent that you need.
