All About Estate Sales & Garage Sales:

SALE

While driving around Staten Island, you may see signs posted all around saying “GARAGE SALE” at a said location and time or you may see a sign that says “ESTATE SALE.” If you have ever wondered if there is a difference between the two, yes there is.

In contrast to garage sales, which are intended to get rid of outdated household goods, estate sales are aimed to clear out a complete estate. Estate sales are one-time events, although homeowners may opt to have garage sales for several weeks at a time. Both garage and estate sales are fantastic choices for anybody hoping to get a great price on unique stuff, regardless of how you're…

Santa Clause Came To Staten Island:

NYPD

Our 2022 NYPD Cookie Delivery was a HUGE success! Thank you to all the generous sponsors and volunteers that made it possible. A few days ago we had the incredible honor of accompanying Santa Claus on his visit to all the NYPD Precincts of Staten Island. It was there where we helped him distribute over 500 tins of cookies for each and every officer, so that they can bring something home to their families this holiday season! They say it's the season of giving...well we wanted to make sure that we gave to those who give so much to us on a daily basis. Thank You to the men & women of the NYPD for welcoming us into your homes away from home and spreading some holiday cheer!

A special thank you to Eddie…

Pros and Cons of a Home Inspection:

INSPECTION

When purchasing a home, one important step most realtors encourage prospective buyers to take is getting a home inspection done on the home they put down an accepted offer on.
