So, you have a painting project. As many of us have discovered the hard way, the outcome is all in the prep!  The painting is the easy part. It's getting the room ready for your brush that's the issue. Choosing a painter's tape seems to be one of the more confusing decisions a DIY painter has to cope with. With so many choices and variables, choosing the right tape can be almost as confusing as picking the right paint color. Painter's Tape Color:Painter's tape comes in several colors. I think there is some confusion about this. A lot of people seem to think that the tape is somehow color-coded. In fact, there are quite a few searches "for painter's tape colors".  But actually, the color is a function of branding, not specific qualities For example, Frog Tape is, not surprisingly, green ...

There is plenty of fear out there right now but don’t let fear deter you from your goals. Playing it safe and taking the path of least resistance is a choice many people take. But taking the safe course of action may be more risky than stepping out there. You may lose an opportunity, your competitive edge or your business when you play it safe. Someone else may replace you while you are in your comfort zone.This is the takeaway. There is risk of acting but there is also risk of inaction. Being fearful of acting may be much riskier that taking that action. How many times have you said, I should have, I could have, I would have?I recently coached a Westchester County NY business executive. She wanted to advance in her career, but she was playing it safe and waiting for the right time. Wha...

 Back in 1997, Delaware Senator Bill Roth sponsored a new kind of retirement savings account with a back-end benefit. In contrast to traditional IRAs, which let you deduct your contributions and defer tax until you pull money out, the Roth IRA lets you contribute after-tax dollars in exchange for tax-free withdrawals. Roth designed his new account to help "hard-working, middle-class Americans" save. So there was a $2,000/year contribution limit. And you could convert a regular IRA into a Roth by paying the tax on your balance, but only if your income was under $100,000.Since then, contribution limits have gone up to $6,000 — $7,000 if you're over 50. And anyone can convert an existing IRA to a Roth, as long as paying the tax makes sense (which we can help you evaluate). Today's proactiv...

As I am writing this I am reading social media posts from people at our event.  All had a great time and are glad that we are back in action again.  Tonight I met people who have been members for a year but have never been to event in person; only on Zoom.What fun it was.  I made so many connections with people and people were asking for my card. ( I don't like to just give it to them.)  These pictures were taken at the beginning of the event.  It was packed with over 150 people.  What I hoped to show in this picture was the line for the bar.  Never saw one that long and that is because the hospitality industry is still very understaffed.But line or no line this was simply a great event and everyone was glad to be back.If you are looking to make your Westchester NY or Fairfield CT busin...

Do You Need Garage Space?...We always ask this question when speaking to a potential Condo buyer, as not all our Long Island communities have them.  For Example, Blue Ridge Condominium, Bretton Woods, Sagamore Hills, Nob Hill and Snug Harbor do not have any garages. They do have ample parking lots within the different sections. Yet, without any garages, they are each very popular communities.  Some Condo communities have garages and also have units with only a parking space, like the Townhouse we recently sold in Fairfield At St. James. This residence did not have a garage, yet we had multiple offers that were over the asking price. Sure many people want the convenience of extra storage space, bad weather conditions or for security reasons, but sometimes these aren't an issue if the buy...

What do you think the stress level is for many real estate professionals and partners given this crazy market?  The fact is that every workplace has stress. Leadership should be concerned about the level of stress in the workplace.Some people have personal stress the carries into the work life. This could be any number of things such as home problems, health, financial worries, and the like. It is wise for leadership to have outside help available rather then getting involved with employees’ private issues. A good EAP (Employee Assistance Program) can be obtained through an outside provider.However, this conversation is about workplace stress brought on in the workplace or by the nature of the work. Being challenged at work can escalate into having a highly demanding job. Often a result...
