This historic Dutch Colonial home is a typical example of the period because the s...

 Rio Vista Estates ,  Mahwah, New Jersey 07430Set amongst the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains along the bucolic and winding Route 202 ( or Ramapo Valley Road) is a private community of over 300 homes.

My daughter, KW, is my inspiration for my new venture into Real Estate blogging. Not only does she and many of her friends spend a lot of time online, she always approaches the many things in her life whole-heartedly, from a fresh perspective and with a competitive spirit.
