  Fab-Forever took to the stage last night in the North Haven summer concert series, and was a major hit with the over-flowing crowd. It was a beautiful night for a concert and the green was packed as Fab Forever played all the Beatles hits we know and love, such as "I wanna hold you hand" and "Eight Days A Week". They had the crowd on their feet and dancing when they preformed their rendition of "Twist and Shout". They finished up their performance with a moving rendition of "Stand by Me" which left the audience shouting for more.If you have a chance to catch this group in your town, don't miss them. The next North Haven Concert on the Green is Tuesday, July 10, 2007 at 7:00 pm.Rick Larrimore's Tribute to Rod Stewart will be performing

Not all real estate agents are created equal.  Like any profession this business is filled with a wide variety of people offering everything from top-notch service to those you would not recommend to a friend. We also work several towns so at times the selected listing agent may not be aware of all the facts.Most towns in our area have what we call the Broker's Tour on Thursday morning that gives us an opportunity to view listings of other real estate offices.  Since I have lived in North Haven over 20 years I know this market pretty well so I usually tour surrounding towns.  Last week I attended the North Haven Tour and it was an eye opener.Being acutely aware of our rising taxes bills I noticed many amounts on tour that seemed outrageous.  After a quick investigation my suspicion was ...

My next running event in North Haven will be the "NHHS PTSA 5K" on April Fool's Day.  This will be my second time running this course, last year had ideal conditions for me. Weather was sunny and warm ( mid 50's ) allowing me to break the 9 minute mile for the first time.  Seems I stagnated at that speed so it will be interesting to see if I do better this spring. Start Time :  10:00am Sunday  Parking:  221 Elm Street   ( MAP )The map is a little deceiving unless you are familiar with the town, exit 10 off 91 will not get you there as easy as it appears.  Here are DIRECTIONS    When you are Coming to Connecticut -  Contact Dan Cummings - The Running Realtor for help with Real Estate.

                   North Haven is filled with an abundance of eats. Breakfast at Scotty's near Elm & Broadway or the Athena Diner just north of the fairgrounds on busy Route 5. For fine lunch or dinner try Bellini's in the plaza at Broadway and Five or you can drive down the road and sit by the fire at The Rusic Oak at 165 Washington Avenue near exit 12 off I-95.

The median sales price of single-family homes in North Haven remains fairly steady.  The fourth quarter median in 2006 was down about 3% from the high of 2005 but the average sales price remained the same at roughly $344,000.   North Haven prices and the number of units sold faired much better than some of the surrounding towns that have seen declines of 15% or more in both the median selling price & number closed sales.
