About | I was raised in the Delaware Valley. For most of my childhood I lived in Yardley and had a typical suburban childhood. We lived in a large (at least I thought so...) house that was "brand-new" at the time and everyone knew their neighbors! A house is more than bricks & mortar, a home is made of memories. A few of my childhood memories include; Concord grapes growing on the fence that my Mother turned into home-made jelly! The large screened-in porch where we slept during summer rain storms! Our St. Bernards that loved the pool and were my own personal "riding machines"! Leaf forts at the curb in the Fall! The neighborhood soccer & baseball matches in our side yard! Our vegetable garden that always provided something new to eat in the summer months! My Mother raised my Brother & me on a teacher's salary and while times were tough for a single woman raising 2 children in the 60's & 70's, we had a wonderful childhood. Leaving public education at high school, I attended The George School and my Mother moved to a townhouse community in Newtown. While I probably did not truly appreciate the value of a Quaker education at the time, I have found its teachings to be instrumental as an adult. I then attended Boston University, where I received a Bachelor's degree in Management, with a focus in Accounting. Leaving college and securing my first job as an "Accountant", I quickly realized that my calling was not behind a desk, but in front of a desk, selling. Within 1 year, I left that trade & began a 20+ year career in sales. Ultimately, my profession led me into large-scale, multinational corporate sales with American Express where I spent nearly 10 years leading complex, global negotiations with their Fortune 50 clients. Working for an organization like American Express, I developed a strong understanding of "the power of the brand" when it comes to marketing, and the power of working for "the leader" in their field. Both of which has proven instrumental in my decision to work for Prudential Fox & Roach (#1 in their field), in my unique approach to "branding" my own personal business & "branding" my clients' properties. After 20 years in the corporate world, I finally decided that it was time to stop traveling 50%+ of my time, and to seek a new career path where I could actually have a direct impact in the lives of my clients. I joined Prudential Fox & Roach in August of 2006 and have loved every minute since! This is likely one of the most emotional professions that one could have the honor of pursuing. The business of helping people with Buying & Selling their "memories" is a very complex & stressful process that takes creativity, tenacity & compassion. It's a richly rewarding experience for me, to be a part of my clients' life & to help them transition from one home to another. In addition to my geographic area of focus (Eastern Montgomery County and N.W. Philadelphia), I specialize in providing comprehensive support & marketing strategies for Owners & Buyers of historic & architecturally significant residences throughout the entire 5-county Philadelphia area. Whether you are buying or selling, you can expect the following from me; Passion - first & foremost! An honest, upfront and direct approach to making the most of our relationship Compassion and understanding when dealing with your personal and family affairs Creativity in marketing and negotiating Tenacity to ensure you obtain the maximum value for your investment Confidentiality in everything we discuss Chairman's Circle Award Winner - 2007, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 President's Circle Award Winner - 2008 & 2011 Over $200,000,000 in Sales in the past 9 years Over 200 properties sold in the past 9 years

I am pleased to present another historical property in the Rydal neighborhood of Abington Township. As is my nature, please allow me to take you on yet another magical history tour before describing the property in detail. Similar to other areas surrounding Philadelphia at the turn of the century, the lands that are now bound by Meetinghouse Road, Washington Lane and Susquehanna Roads were once home to grand estates (and very few remain today). Just after the turn of the last century, this section of Rydal which encompasses over 250 acres had only 10 estate properties. As is the custom, these estates all had names, and while most of them have been demolished, only the memories remain as road names. Those estates included; Barrowdale (the Stoddart, then the Owlsley families) Lorraine (the Gilbert, then the

It’s time once again to take you on yet another magical history tour!!! I am pleased to present another classic Pennsylvania Farmhouse Colonial in the heart of the Rydal section of Abington Township. But first, thanks to a wonderful brochure produced in 2005 for a walking tour by the Rydal-Meadowbrook Civic Association and the Old York Road Historical Society, I can provide you with yet another Magical History Tour of this section of Abington Township! Today’s history tour focuses on the Herkness, Stoddard & Stetson families! The Herkness family first emigrated from Scotland in the early 19th Century. Adam Herkness was a stone mason in Philadelphia. His Son, Alfred Morris Herkness went into the auction business in 1833, and ultimately created his own auction company in 1846. His focus was in the auctioning of horses & carriages from a

1903 Dutch Colonial – Constructed for Edward Lorimer!!!

1110 Stratford Avenue Elkins Park, , 19027
  • 4,782 sq ft
  • 6 beds
  • 2.5 baths

It’s time once again to take you on yet another magical history tour!!! Since I have written so much in the past on the development of Elkins Park in previous listings, I won’t bore you yet again with how this area developed from the land of grand estates to that of wealthy real estate development. So let me start by staying focused just on this one area, and the family that had this house constructed. What is now the section that is known as Melrose Park was once just two large estates. Anna R. Sharpless owned a 60 acre estate called “The Oaks”. Richard C. Dobbins owned an estate on over 100 acres called Ellerslie. Richard Dobbins was a wealthy contractor and was responsible for constructing Memorial Hall during the Centennial Exhibition of 1876. This is the only
