Welcome to New Castle County, Delaware County, Chester County and the Surrounding Areas Just West of Philadelphia






Situated just West of Philadelphia are an amazing range of properties that can satisfy the needs of most any lifestyle.

Eastern Delaware County in some ways feels like an extension of Philadelphia.  Just across Cobbs Creek, you enter some of the first historic suburbs of Philadelphia in Darby and Lansdowne.  As the region grew, development followed the rail lines both south along the Delaware River through Chester and into the state of Delaware and west along the Main Line traveling through Radnor to Harrisburg and points west.  The older suburbs are filled with a wide variety of housing from small row homes up to classic detail filled single family estates.

As you travel further west in Delaware County, the area begins to open up with newer suburban developments interspersed among older towns such as Media, Newtown Square, and Wayne.  You enter former farm, estate, and hunt country.  Here you still have predominately single family homes on larger parcels combined with some newer development.  West of Delaware County, you enter Chester County which provides a broad array of housing choices form the Boroughs of West Chester and Kennett Square to the large horse farms and pastures of Unionville and the countryside beyond.

Traveling southwest from Pennsylvania into northern Delaware, New Castle County is also a popular choice.  Wilmington is easily accessible by rail and car from Philadelphia and is a major stop on the Northeast Corridor rail lines if you need to travel toward Washington or New York.  Just north of Wilmington you have many mid century developments along and east of the Route 202 corridor.  To the northwest along Route 52, you quickly pass through Greenville and Centreville in the former Chateau country with many larger homes and estates nestled along the Brandywine Creek as you continue into Chester County.  Southwest are many newer developments and Newark.

Old:New, City:Country, Row:Single Family Homes, the area has a broad range of options sure to satisfy any need.


As a Delaware native who was raised, schooled, and has lived in Delaware, Chester, and New Castle Counties for years, I have extensive knowledge throughout the local community.  Having lived in a dozen states and traveled to over fifty countries, I bring a bit wider perspective to bear on any home search.  Originally licensed in California in 1994 and Florida in 1997, I have already experienced some of the best and worst that can be seen in the real estate market and can pull from that experience to provide you with the guidance needed in today's world.  Licensed in Pennsylvania in 2004 and Delaware in 2005, I have been able to build on that experience through one of the best and toughest markets the area has ever seen.

Today, by combining the Market Strength and Depth of Resources of Long & Foster Real Estate with my extensive Local Knowledge and Internet Marketing Expertise, your property will receive the Maximum Exposure available in today's market.  I will work harder to be sure your property is exposed to the widest possible array of potential buyers in as little time as possible to achieve the maximum value possible in your time frame.

As an independent buyer in today's market, I can assist you in a broad range of areas depending on your needs.  From experienced hands to first time home buyers, I can guide you through the search, the buying process, and the areas to help you find the appropriate property at your convenience.  With advanced communcation tools, I cover the gamut from traditional mail to twitter to make your search as convenient as possible.
