Most homes have mold. You might not see it, or know it's there --- unless of course you have mold allergies, and then it could be a serious problem. One of those unfortunate people just contracted to purchase my listing, in Wyckoff. If you think you know all about mold, think again. For almost tw...

The Northwest Bergen County real estate market has taken a hit, but we've been fortunate not to have been slammed like so much of New Jersey.  Higher-priced homes in towns like Franklin Lakes, Saddle River, Upper Saddle River and Ridgewood have sat on the market longer and have sold for less than...
