This has not been the worst of winters, so far, but dark and grey days do take a toll. One sure sign of spring in the city in the annual Philadelphia Flower Show, march 11 -19. If you love dutch tulips and other flowers, this is the show for you as the theme this year is " Holland, Flowering the World" Expect to see visions of canals, windmills and other Dutch treats woven into the always beautiful displays. Few people realize that dutch tulips were the must have garden plant in the 17th century and there was actually a version of a "Tulip Bubble " at one point with the fanciest bulbs going for extravagant prices. The Flower show supports the activities of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and is also the the oldest show of its kind in the world. No mater what your horticultural interests, you will find something to enjoy.

I’ll find you the perfect home for the right price–with strength, patience and a sense of humor.
Before I became a full-time REALTOR® 8 years ago, I was a broadcast producer who supervised million-dollar TV commercials. I worked with famous actors who were a lot more difficult to deal with than you or I could ever be. I bring 25 years of mastering high-stakes negotiations under intense stress, and I’m not afraid to fight for the right price.
I return calls within two hours or less, and I especially love first-time buyers.
As a resident of Philadelphia since 1996, I’ve rented and owned properties in Old City, Queen Village, Washington Square West and Rittenhouse Square. I know all the neighborhoods, especially those near the Delaware.
I’m a Tree Tender for the Queen Village Neighborhood Association. We plant and take care of trees around our neighborhood, which helps improve our air quality and property values.
I will work hard to earn your business and I will return your call in two hours or less.
