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.

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…

Each time I first sit down with a potential client, we discuss qualifying for a mortgage, and the 3 main aspects we use to determine whether a borrower can get financing: ability to repay the loan, willingness to repay the loan, and the collateral value of a house which is determined using an appraisal. Each of these is weighted equally and all 3 aspects determine the suitability of a borrower to obtain the financing to buy a property. This is essentially the foundation for buying a home.
You may be able to qualify for the payments and the house is sufficient collateral for the loan, but if you don't have good credit you may not be able to get the mortgage. This is also true if the appraisal is ok and your credit is good,…

While the economy in Mystic Country slowly recovers from this economic
debacle, we look to each other for signs of improvement. We often ask our sphere
of influence how business is going and believe that the answer will somehow act
as a road sign for what is to come or a litmus test of our own present success
level. For some reason there are always a few individuals in each trade who
consistently remain busy and the work continues to flow to them like a river to
the sea. I pride myself in working with the best business people in our region.
These individuals have not only mastered their craft but they uphold a moral
code and desire to do what is right. Have you ever worked with someone who took
pride and ownership in their…
