    Best mums in South Windsor. Foster Farm (90 Foster street). The summer is gone and we are all getting ready for fall. Autumn is my absolute favorite season. I enjoy taking my run on a crisp, sunny morning and watch beautiful foliage. Who can ignore amber and gold yellows, ruby reds, viridian greens... Or go on a family bike ride.  Best mums in South Windsor are at Foster Farm, 90 Foster Street.   Of course during these months I always “dress-up” my house inside and outside. To decorate the outside, I put mums and pumpkins. For the last few years I went to go pick-up the best mums and pumpkins at Foster Farm in South Windsor. They have absolutely the best price on the best Mums in South Windsor.   The hours of operation are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM—Everyday. All Mums are sold in 9” Pots. Y...

          Marketing Yourself Using Video. If I can do it YOU CAN DO IT TOO!           By profession, I am a classical pianist with a Master in Arts (piano pedagogy/classical performance). I also have about 15 years of teaching experience but I remember how challenging it was for me to start my piano studio years ago. But hard work, my competitive spirit, and significant desire to succeed gave me strength. Now, I am the director and owner of the South Windsor Piano Studio, LLC, with about 55 students enrolled. I do believe that if you really want to do something and if you work as hard as you can, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.           I’ve been involved into real estate since 1997... when we lived in California. There, I concentrated on interior design work for residen...

How I became a realtor. For my whole life, I have been around people and I consider myself outgoing and positive. I am also hardworking person and have been a piano teacher since 1995, when my husband decided to come to United States to undertake his PhD in Physics. I had no choice but to followJ. My biggest fear back then—was not knowing English. I don’t know if you can fully “feel” the pain I went through the first few years I lived in America. But I have to say that I am confident now that my English is pretty good. What about a little accent? Well, it will stay with me, and give me even more individuality! By profession, I am a classical pianist with a Master in Arts (piano pedagogy/classical performance). I also have about 15 years of teaching experience but I remember how challen...

One of the most beautiful classical pieces. Ludwig Van Beethoven is one of the most important composers in the history of music, and one of my absolute favorite! (That is why I named my South Windsor piano studio “Little Beethovens” LLC). Nobody knows the exact date on which Ludwig was born. He was baptized in the German town of Bonn on December 17, 1770. At first, Beethoven was taught piano and violin by the father. Between the ages of 10 and 22 he studied with Christian Gottlob Neefe, the court organist at Bonn. Neefe recognized Beethoven’s talent and encouraged him as a musician. But today, I want to share with you one of the most famous, and most mysterious pieces written by Ludwig Van Beethoven: “For Elise.” This piece is a bagatelle (short instrumental piece). The title is “For El...

Speechless Sunday.    We all work hard to make our clients happy, make sure that they will remember what you have done for them. Of course, most of them don’t even realize through how many loops and hoops we should jump to make a deal go through, especially in today’s market. And when I meet with my clients for the first time, either seller or buyer, I never think how much money I will make. Making them happy is most important to me! Short and simple.    And it is especially rewarding when you have your past clients calling you back, and referring you to their friends and family.    Last week I received an email from my past client’s daughter, who was looking for a rent in another state. She is about to start college there and was asking me if I can help her find a rent for her there. W...
