Who doesn’t think Norman Rockwell when passing Lake Afton, especially in the winter when it is frozen over and full of ice skaters. Even better, these days you just have to skate to the edge to Starbucks for a hot chocolate. Originally settled by William Yardley in 1682 and developed into a village at the turn of the nineteenth century, this Borough is now home to shops, offices, great bakery (Cramer’s) and the busiest WAWA I have ever had the joy of going into!

How likely are you to recommend Cosack Team? * highly likely Rate Cosack Team on specific characteristics Local knowledge: *     Process expertise: *     Negotiation skills: *     Responsiveness: *     Summary of their experience: Decided to purchase my home w dale as I seen his reviews and website (Bucks Condo King)about communities in lower bucks county. As a first time homebuyer and relocating, it could have been very challenging, but dale referred me to title and mortgage companies which by far had the cheapest costs and were easy to work with. I feel I snatched up a good deal on my new home. I would definitely use Dale again and would recommend him to anybody. Thanks againMark - Makefield Glen, Yardley PA
