My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 242:

Saturday – appointment day in Danbury.  Stopped at the office to meet with my clients.  We viewed a few new listings and 2 listings for the 2nd time.  One of their favorites was near Richter Park Golf Course

Afterwards, I went back to the office to get ready for tomorrow’s appointments.  After dinner, Melissa, Sara and I went to see Amanda in the The Music Man at the New Fairfield High School

 

It was an awesome show and we are so proud of Amanda!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 148

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 148:

Wednesday – exactly 1 week of school left for the kids!  Today, Amanda had her Holiday Sing Along at the New Fairfield High School

 

In the middle of the performance, the fire alarm went off and we had to evacuate the building – into the freezing cold!  Fortunately, I waited in my car – with the heat and seat warmer on high.  The fire department came and cleared all for us to proceed back into the building for the rest of the performance

Amanda and all of the choir and band performers did a wonderful job, there is loads of talent in these kids and I enjoyed the show – with the exception of having to go out in the freezing cold – but how can I complain… Joe is working tonight – outside – the entire night.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 122

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 122:

Sunday – and Jonathan had his last soccer game – which ended in a tie – and I was so thankful it was a HOME GAME –  at the New Fairfield High School Rebel Turf Field.  And yes, once again – I sat in my car… actually it’s our rental from Enterprise

… and watched the game – keeping myself warm and multi-tasking at the same time.  I worked a bit, making calls, sending e-mails and I looked over my “To-Do” list for Thanksgiving Day.

This is’nt the first time New Fairfield High School has been recognized for being a “top school”  – U.S. News & World Report gave NFHS a silver ranking in tis review this year. It is 1 of 18 Connecticut schools to receive that designation.  Also, Newsweek ranked NFHS in the “Top 1,200 Schools in the Country in 2007.”

Back to School!

Summer is over – and the kids are all back to school!  I’ve gotten my 2 oldest off to Western Connecticut State University, 2 into New Fairfield High School and my youngest into New Fairfield Middle School – Whew! 

                                                                     

I was very fortunate in getting them ready for school.  With having access to many different stores for school supplies and clothes – all within 20 minutes from where I live – New Fairfield, Connecticut – which neighbors Danbury, CT to one side and Brewster, New York to the other side. 

Convenience, which is anything that saves time, energy or frustration, is very important – especially with all that is happening around us.  Here in New Fairfield, I have convenience. 

     

If I run out of milk – Shaw’s Supermarket is just 4 minutes away – or I go into Brewster to the A & P Supermarket in under 15 minutes – which helps me to take advantage of both stores weekly sales.  Need gas?  2 gas stations are also just 4 minutes away from my home.  Visiting my daughter in her dorm in Danbury – mostly to pick up her dirty laundry or drop off groceries – is just 15 minutes away, while she pretends to be miles and miles away!  My commute to my office – Century 21 V.J.F. Realty in Brewster – is also under 15 minutes away!  Convenience, convenience, convenience!

Thanks to GOOGLE for the School Bus image

New Fairfield, CT – 2008 Senior Prom

   New Fairfield High School in New Fairfield, CT celebrated their Senior Prom.  It took place this past Sunday, May 25, 2008.  The day was beautiful with blue, sunny skies and warm temperatures – perfect for picture taking!

My son, David, his date Ashley and friends – including my niece Kristin, took all day preparing.  They attended picture parties and then made their way to the High School where they boarded 6 coach buses.  They arrived in New York City for a dinner and dance cruise around the Statue of Liberty.  Fun, fun – FUN!  And many memorable memories to last a lifetime!

Going to School in New Fairfield, Connecticut

blog-030

As Spring is blooming and buzzing all around us, more and more people are out shopping for a Home.

One very important question that every buyer should ask their Realtor is for a School Report.  Whether you have children or not, buying in an area with a good school system is also important for re-sale purposes.  Since you may want to sell your home in a few years to buyers that are interested in the school’s. 

                                                          

To learn about New Fairfield School’s, <CLICK> or New Fairfield High School.

Most school reports can be e-mailed to you – and most schools have their own website.  Need assistance?  I’ll be happy to help. Or – HomeFair.com has free school reports on line.
