Morris County's Most Amazing Veterinarians at Rockaway Animal Hospital   Recently our beloved dog Lucy became very ill with Pancreatitis and tore her ACL. We brought her to the Rockaway Animal Hospital, now owned by Dr. Sanam Maniar and Dr. Erin Maniar. Not only did I instantly love Dr. Maniar, but Lucy who usually has to be sedated and muzzled took an instant liking to him and had no problem letting him evaluate her. That in itself is a miracle!     Lucy spent the next 8 days with Dr. Maniar who restored her to health, calling us daily, 2-3 times with progress reports. Moreover, whenever I called, he spoke with me directly or got back to me within the hour reassuring me that she was calm, out of pain and on the road to recovery.   I have never met a kinder, more compassionate, dedicate...

"Thank you Shawn & Diane for your real estate expertise. You advised us correctly of how to price our home and even in a very bad market, we got two parties bidding for our home at the same time.

"We needed to sell our home as quickly as possible and did not have much time to research Realtors in the area. Luckily for us, the first name that came up in our interent search was the Fox Home Team. From the moment they walked through our front door, Shawn and Diane were not only extremely professional, but more importantly, they were friendly, personable, and helped set our minds at ease about having to sell our home during a historically difficult real estate market. The pictures they took of the house and brochures that they created for potential buyers were top notch. Shawn's knowledge of the pricing of real estate in the area, including what he thought we should list the house for was right on the money. We also had some repair issues that needed to be addressed and Shawn went a...

As we approach tax time, let's make sure that we have exhausted all potential tax deductions that the government affords you. Take a look at: http://www.irs.gov/publications/p946/ch02.html If you have made purchases of assets (big or small) this past year.

Sometimes it takes some perspective to remind us of how important our profession is.  When it comes right down to it, what we do as REALTORS® is help our buyer clients find an environment that will become the backdrop of dreams and memories. I recently returned to my hometown of Rockaway, New Jersey for the first time in many years.  Thanks to the prodding of childhood friends who found me on Facebook and insisted we have a small reunion, I found myself in Rockaway standing across the street from the house I grew up in.  As I stood there, the house, which as a child seemed enormous, looked far too small to contain all the wonderful memories that were formed there.  Family holidays, Lifecycle Events like my Grandfather's 60th Birthday Party & Clambake, Planting in the garden with my dad...
