How To Find The Perfect Home For You And Your Family

Want to make the home buying process much more organized and enjoyable?  

It's important to be realistic about what you can afford and what is available in the communities where you want to live.  It's also important to realize that no house is perfect, and you will need to make compromises.  Your goal should be to get a home you really like that fits your needs and your budget. 

Your first step should be to sit down and make a list of what features are in your perfect home and organize the items into 3 main categories:

Marlboro Schools Will Offer Full-Day Kindergarten!

Starting with the 2017-18 school year, the Marlboro School District will offer full-day kindergarten.

The Marlboro School Board approved a $1.94 million plan to renovate computer labs at four elementary schools and convert them into eight additional classrooms to accommodate the kindergarten students. The original plan to build 28 new kindergarten classrooms was rejected by voters, so the district found an alternative way to make it happen . . . to the delight of many local parents.

Superintendent Eric Hibbs said, "There will be more time spent on the individual needs of our students. The increased time will allow for a greater emphasis on social skills and a day filled with varied educational opportunities and experiences."

Lets take a look at the significant market statistics through the end of April 2016, compared to the same period in 2015.  Here's a quick visual to sum it up:

Had Fun Participating In The Annual Walk4Friends Event!

We had a great time with all the supporters in the Walk4Friends on Sunday, May 22!  

Walk4Friends is an annual event, held at the Vonage campus in Holmdel.  It raises crucial funds & community awareness for The Friendship Circle – a nonprofit organization for individuals with special needs.  This year's event began with an inspiring opening ceremony followed by a one mile walk.  There was food, fun & entertainment for all ages and an opportunity to get to know the people & families we were walking for.

It was a pleasure to donate our time and resources to such a worthy cause, and we are happy knowing that our contributions go directly toward helping people in our own community.
