Many of us here on Active Rain are proud of our grandchildren.  It is such a delight to see them as they grow up.The feature picture is our daughter Ashley proudly posing with her boys--our grandsons.  Max is a firefighter for Halloween and Teddy is a dalmatian.  Ashley and Tom celebrated their 6th wedding anniversary on November 4th.  As Ashley wrote on her Facebook page, what we wished and prayed for has come true.  As parents and grandparents that message was very touching.Max was born during the pandemic but soon got acquainted with his cousins and made an number of friends in Ashley's mom's club.  He got plenty of attention and we read him many books.  Max can't sit still and loves to work with his dad and his grandfathers.  They just had a sprinkler system installed at their house...

I knew that it was going to be a big year when I saw signs by the Armonk police that said roads closed from 4pm to 7pm on Halloween.We go to a house of our friends on Glendale Ave.  That meant we had to drive from our house to their house before 4pm.  It did not take long for the street to begin to fill up with people. You can see our friend giving out treats.  We ran out of treats before the night ended.We went inside the house and had some warm food until the street reopened.If you are looking to make your Westchester NY or Fairfield CT business thrive please contact me.  914-953-4458ORIf you are looking to make your South Florida business thrive please contact me.  772-342-1066

"Anyone who has sold a house or has purchased a home knows how time consuming and frustrating it can be. My situation was one where both needed to be done at the same time. Phyllis made the procedure pleasant and as stress free as possible. She not only talked me through every stage of the process but she also went above and beyond in helping complete each task. Phyllis took the time to get to know what I was looking for in my new home. She researched many places and sought out the kind she knew I would like. She was more than patient and understood how hard this process is on a personal level. On the selling side, she was right on target on what was needed to be done as far as updates to the home and other details for reselling a home. Phyllis was always reliable and was always availab...

"Phyllis, thank you for all your help and walking us through both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our newly built home.  For us, it was an overwhelming process and your expertise and patience helped us every step of the way.  You explained everything completely and your constant communication kept us updated.  You gave us all the information we needed and we could see you were serious about craft. Your knowledge of the Westchester area and real estate, in general, was a Godsend.  We were ready to give up and accept quite a bit less than we asked for our old home, but you advised us to hold firm and we benefited.  You were also there every step of the way for the purchase of our new home, which was no easy feat.  We were purchasing a new build which took much longer than exp...

Modular homes are prefabricated, which means they’re built in a factory. After the home is built, it’s delivered to your building site, and then it’s assembled and put on the foundation you had installed prior. Some people decide to buy modular homes because they are always of better and stronger built quality than site built homes, they can be less expensive than a traditionally built home, usually because the process of building modular homes is more efficient and the construction time is up to 50% less. Saved time, less waste = money saved. The following are five things to know before you invest in a modular home. 1. The Basics Modular homes are built in sections in factories. These factories are giant facilities that assemble homes based on the International Residential Code or IRC...
