I was going to Jamaica to take some pictures on a house for a BPO order. The accident happened at the intersection of Grand Central Parkway & 164 St around 5:45 P.M. The area is Jamaica, also know as Jamaica Estates with zip code 11432. St John University and Queens Hospital Center  are located in the area. Our office was in the neighborhood, but was moved to Flushing. There were 40 transactions in the area in the first half of 2009 (as recorded in MLS); 9 were REO. Price ranged from $170,000 to $985,000. Median price was $505,000.

VideoAd by Mixpo The fun thing about taking your kids to work with you is they have a way of bringing a new perspective to what might otherwise be a routine day. My little Realtors-in-training are both coping with learning disabilities so I try to include them in as many life activities as possible to give them real world perspective. I guess all kids can do strange things. Remember the Blur Minion's attempt at toasting our cell phones? Boys being boys, Hubby has been hooking them up with some interesting Manly-man projects to keep them busy. Now it seems that my kids aren't happy unless I pop the hood so they can "fix the car" before we leave for school in the mornings (LOL). The popping of the hood usually is requested after the weekend. Noah always starts by announcing with great au...

If I had the money I would buy this house. Once upon a time someone loved it... I was saddened to see it in such disrepair as it grinned at me from a barren yard... I marveled at the stonework and longed to see the inside... I wanted to leave my card for the owner. Alas, there was no mail box, no sign, no post, no plastic folder... There was nothing for me to do but wait and hope that one day soon someone would come to care for it the way that I wanted to. Once upon a time someone loved this house... I knew I could love it too... (Jamaica Estates, Queens County, New York)

This series of residential tours is inspired by my girlfriends Elizabeth Weintraub (of Sacramento) and Poppy Dinsey (of London, UK). The Weintraub Gallery features her favorite Land Park Homes in Sacramento (NY Times, About.com), while Poppy D (Zoomf) takes us on an eclectic tour of her neck of the woods in "A Walk Around Chester, England," and "A Walk Around London England." In "Home Inspections" Elizabeth asks us, "Where Do You Draw The Line On Repair Requests?" If you haven't been acquainted with her blog, please make it your business to do so, for it is definitely a must read. E's blog also contains an outstanding kitchen remodeling series where we are taken on a delightful day by day, step by step, behind the scenes tour full of humor, angst, horror and praise while providing some ...
