Everyone is away on vacation, at the beach with the kids, or maybe the white mountains in NH, visiting family and friends, whatever it is most people are away in July~~somewhere. In New England there is plenty to do all year round. ..... the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains, 1 hr. from downtown Boston.....With that said, I am so glad that I have invested in my own personal realestate website, www.patricia4realestate.com for leads. Most everyone takes along their laptop when they travel so it is easy to stay in touch with everyone. With any luck at all one might be driving down the coastline from Portsmouth, to Hampton and drive by the home they want next summer to vacation in.  This has, for the last five years, been a great source of potetial business for me as a REALTOR Lic. in NH/ME/...
