I have been licensed since 1992 and have seen a buyer's market and a seller's market.I will share my experience with readers and hope for feedback from agents about their experiences so I can learn from them. I will have some posts for consumers with tips on buying and selling and I will give them an opportunity to see my listings on line as well as all available listings in multiple listing service. I write monthly market reports about Bucks County real estate. You can subscribe to my blog if you would like to know about the real estate market in Philadelphia and suburbs.
