When applying for a mortgage, one thing for certain is that yo...

I was thinking a bit about buying a home and being a first time homebuyer.  It's a really big deal.  First of all...most people in that situation are used to renting.  When you rent, everything is really done for you.  Your application is typically a couple of pages with very little supporting do...

I love sitting in the office on a Friday afternoon, tying together all loose ends.  Even better than that, I love getting together and meeting people socially, knowing that it's the best way to combine work with fun.   So, I'll throw it out there...  New World Tavern, 52 Main Street, Plymouth (ac...

I was putting together a "who needs my services" letter when I made a simple list: 1. People thinking of buying a house. 2. People looking to refinance their mortgage. 3.
