This year, Chuck has his very own "Chuck-o-vator," which carried him into the glass enclosure in order to guarantee his safety. Back in 2014, Mayor Bill de Blasio accidentally dropped another groundhog posing as Chuck, who unfortunately died a week later due to internal injuries. However, the Staten Island Zoo assured the public that this tragedy was not a direct cause of the fall. But as the tradition continues, we hold our furry friend close to our hearts, and want to ensure his safety during his biggest day of the year! Chuck has become somewhat of Staten Island's mascot, and you can come see him anytime in West Brighton! The beginning of February always brings one of Staten Island's most notorious holidays — Groundhog Day! Staten Island Zoo's favorite…

Why Hire a Professional Photographer to Take Photos of Your Home?
If you are looking to sell your home online, the first thing you have to do is take pictures of your home because you need to show people what your home looks like. First impressions are everything to a person. If potential buyers see low-quality and unappealing photos of the house that you are selling online, they will potentially skip, ignore, or hate it. However, if the buyers do decide to give the home a chance, the way they in which your home is presented could positively impact their first impressions. In fact, they could visualize something dramatically different then what your home looks like. That is why hiring a professional photographer is the best option for you to sell your…
What Is the Real Estate Q & A???
Well, to answer that question in it’s entirety one must first analyze what exactly it is a real estate agent is SUPPOSED to do.
— and for us at Tom Crimmins Realty, it is simple; PROVIDE VALUE!

So, do we honestly do more than provide value? The answer…
YES! We provide smiles, we provide professionalism, and most importantly we provide you with our undivided intention (along with the keys to your new home)! However, maybe we can…

What's the answer - "In" or "on"?
Often times we hear questions that we really don’t have the answers to. Questions that leave us pondering. Questions that inspire thought, yet leave us thoughtless. Ones that do nothing but leave us frustrated and defeated because we know that we, very well, may never find the answers.
What is the meaning of life?
Where did we come from?
Why is it that we park in a driveway, yet drive on a parkway?
Question after question — No answer after no answer! We are begging for the answers and yet, here, we find ourselves doubtful and rolling our eyes because the only one who gave us an answer was our drunken uncle who very well could be right, but we, honestly, JUST DON’T KNOW!
Well, if you came here…
RESIDENTIAL - TWO-FAMILY - DETACHED FOR SALE IN THE HEART OF TOTTENVILLE
THIS HOUSE FOR SALE CAN BE FOUND ON OUR WEBSITE TOMCRIMMINSREALTY.COM AS WELL AS NYC.FLEXMLS.COM (MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE)
Finding your dream home can be quite the ordeal, but does it have to be? One of the biggest problems potential buyers have is that they really don’t know what it is they want; they have an idea, but not a clear picture. They have certain features in mind, but are not able to visualize the whole house. It’s actually much like discovering, or figuring out, a new-born baby’s name because sometimes you just don’t know what you want until you see it and it’s right in front of you. You know you want a pool. You know you want to be in a nice neighborhood, and…
