On the corner of Water St and New London Rd sits a golden opportunity to own the last property in Mystic’s downtown WDD commercial zone.

Often times, buyers elect to forego one very simple test that could potentially have an impact on their health. Testing for radon in the water as well as in the air will give you peace of mind that you have protected your asset and loved ones from an invisible killer.
Recently, I was navigating the sale of a home in which the buyers were testing for radon in the well water. This is very uncommon in this industry as confirmed by the buyer’s agent who had been in the business for over 20 years and had never experienced radon in the water. In fact, my colleagues at William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty and Seaport Real Estate Group had not experienced radon in the water and were at a loss in regard to remediation.
My two most recent…

Myron Mixon, also known as the “winningest man” in competitive barbecuing and the star of the hit show Destination America’s BBQ Pitmasters will soon become a name familiar to many in southeastern, CT as he sizzles to new heights with the development of a smoker that will change the taste of neighborhood barbecues nationwide. Myron never slows down as he is currently piloting 2 new upcoming shows and opening a new restaurant in NYC. You can even learn how to cook like Myron as he opens up his own home and expertise to the students of Jack’s Old South Cooking School. He is doing all this while working on a new book, which is only a couple of years removed from releasing his New York Times best seller Smokin’.

It’s really that simple. Building businesses and creating jobs is what every town in America needs more of these days. Thankfully, we are beginning to see glimpses of life coming back into the markets and real estate slowly starting to heat up. The successful small business owners have acted as a catalyst in keeping the economy afloat and forging the way for years to come. Giving recognition to these business owners for their accomplishments through hard times and continued success is the least that we can do.
Seconn Fabrication’s President and Owner Rob Marelli Jr. has shown continued willingness and a strong desire to re-invest in his business. Rob is making an even bigger investment in his employees which has had a positive effect on…

Letter from the Seller ~
Thank you for your interest in our home. We have spent five very happy years living here. Our home is set in the Mystic Historic District and was built in 1879. Our fondest memories of living at 12 Burrows Street will always be of our children playing outside, running in and out of the pool, and rolling down the hill in our front yard chasing our black lab ‘Bella’. This has been a great home for entertaining, for our children to…

Have you ever worked with someone so GOOD that you wanted to tell everyone about your experience?
How often have you agreed to a monthly service agreement, insurance policy, or TV package only to find rates rapidly creeping up and the value of service declining? Many of us utilize automatic payment programs that make it nearly impossible to spot these changes for years while the built-in escalation clauses leave us feeling violated and taken advantage of.
Wouldn’t life be a little sweeter if your service provider had YOUR best interest in mind and notified you of rate hikes while offering money saving alternatives?
A few weeks ago, I received a call from Debbie Kane of Sava insurance Group in Waterford CT. Debbie, had performed a…

To start, I must say that I am not a tax professional or an attorney. In fact, I have no desire to be involved in either of these professions (though I respect them) and urge you to seek counsel from someone other than a real estate professional writing a blog post.
First of all, it is not a sales tax nor does it impose any transfer tax or recordation tax. It is called a “Medicare Tax” because the money received will be allocated to the Medicare Trust Fund, which is part of the Social Security System. This tax will not affect everyone and in fact will impact a very small percentage of people selling.
People are confused for good reason. The actual legislation will make your head spin…take a look.
SEC. 1411. IMPOSITION OF TAX.

Since our new site has gone live we keep hearing great feedback about our Keyword Search! People love the ability to be specific with their search criteria. We understand that many of our clients have a specific need and are only looking for a certain type of property. Our keyword search is one way we are making your home/property search an enjoyable and simplified process.

With Hurricane Sandy closely in our rear view mirror we are left with continued clean up caused by record breaking winds and a storm surge that changed the landscape of many coastal communities. As a real estate professional focusing on the Waterfront Communities in the region, I must pause and think of the short and long term affects that this storm will have on the market.
The short term is ear marked by the clean-up of downed trees, submerged roads, newly created sand dunes, and catastrophic structural damage to homes located in low- lying areas not fortified by seawalls. It is rumored that FEMA may in fact redraw the maps that have defined the communities since 1938. Time will tell.
