Colts Neck Beauty…..Not!

864870_stupid_I was out to dinner the other night with a few of my girlfriends when our attention turned to the beautiful women whom was engaged in some heavy(PDA) public displays of affection with a man that many would say was NOT attractive.


Surely a woman of her stature would date an Adonis type male.

I had to explain to the ladies that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

There are many reasons why we may be attracted to the opposite sex. 

Who are we to say what the definition of beauty is?

690936_white_mansion_saddle_riverSame holds true in the Real Estate world.

 One of my clients recently asked me why the house down the street sold prior to her home selling?

To her surprise, the house down the street was not as beautiful as hers in her opinion and more expensive. 

Although 913716_abandoned_houseI agreed with her, unfortunately, beauty is not ours to define for others.

 To that particular buyer, the worn down home has something that sparks their interest beyond physical beauty. The inside may be more important than the outside.

Now when I hear a seller wanting to up the price because they feel their home is better, nicer or more beautiful than those listed, I quickly tell the story of the not so attractive man.

Honestly, nothing beats a dose of humility and some good CMA’s.

Colts Neck Realtor’s Quote Of The Day

1118198_sunsetOur lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens………

not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life…………

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes……..

It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.

Lucky Colts Neck Dog

1099224_giftWhat is a dog to do when he sees a big huge box waiting for him at the front door???

I lick it and sniff it and now I know there are treats in this box that are meant for me, yet, the package is addressed to Sarah Bandy.

Dog gone it!

Barking and wagging my tail uncontrollably in the hopes that Sarah will open the box immediately, she slowly opens the package to reveal an interesting note card with the best message ever scripted, accompanied by gourmet dog treats, for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

I was right!!! This sweet and creative gift that created such curiosity was sent from a not so secret admirer.

866730_thank_youWell technically he is secret because we don’t know who he is but he did sign the card but left no phone number or email address so that we could personally thank him.

So Scott, if you are reading this, know that my mom and I really appreciate your sweet gesture and kind words and we too wish you all the best!

Red Bank Is Rocking


What to do when you get the itch to have New York City style food and fun but you don’t feel like trekking into the city??                                            Well, look no further than Teak, located in  Red Bank New Jersey.

Although Teak is known for its Asian Flair, last Friday night it was transformed into a Latin house complete with an amazing Salsa band.

CIMG2961Of course you never know who you will bump into while on the dance floor.

It’s always fun to see other real estate agents as well as clients out enjoying the town too.

If you missed last weeks party, don’t fret. Teak has Merengue dancing on the second Friday of each month.

With the opening of the new Better Homes in Red Bank division about to make its debut, I get a feeling you will be seeing a lot more of me around town.

Hope to see you there too!

Colts Neck To Cancun

CIMG2849Where in the world is Sarah Bandy again??

Well technically I’m back from vacation but I just wanted to share some photos of my trip to Mexico.

I really had a wonderful time in Cancun and the hotel as well as the staff at The Hyatt Cancun Caribe were wonderful.


Another reason why I think it is fantastic to live in Colts Neck is the close proximity to all major airports.

Newark International Airport is approximately a 35 minute drive from Colts Neck, allowing easy access to the destination of your dreams.


After five relaxing days and a renewed spirit, I am back and ready to conquer the real estate market.
