Agent Receives the Norm Northrup Award for Exemplary Service

Local realtor, Helen Bolino was recently recognized for outstanding performance at Northrup Realtors’ annual meeting.

Bolino, received  the “Norm Northrup” Award” which is presented to the agent who best personifies the strong values, exceptional professionalism and high ethical standards envisioned by the company’s namesake and founder Norman Northrup when he first established the local real estate company in 1952.

“Norm believed that the key to fostering a successful business was to establish high standards and to create a reputation for excellence. Helen Bolino exemplifies those traits in all of her interactions and every transaction.

Helen’s reputation for honesty, fairness, dependability and respect for confidentiality has been a huge factor to our company’s continuing success and we are extremely fortunate to be able to work with her” Northrup’s President Richard Tisei stated. 

Helen is held in high esteem by the real estate community and as a result of her work has developed a widespread and very loyal following. In fact, according to the Multiple Listing Service she has ranked as Lynnfield’s leading real estate agent for 17 straight years.  Her success is a result of her successful negotiating skills, customer satisfaction and exceptional work ethic.

Please join us in congratulating Helen!

Fairways Edge at Sagamore Project Overview

Fairways Edge at SagamoreAs a follow up a previous post from February 28, we would like to shed some more light on the Fairways Edge at Sagamore project currently being proposed by Bonvie Homes.  

The first matter to be addressed is a vote to amend the town zoning laws. Fairways Edge at Sagamore is a proposed 55+ residential community consisting of 154 attached residences built around Sagamore Spring Golf Club. The project would be built under the Lynnfield Elderly Housing bylaw if approved by voters at the April 30th Town Meeting.

Voters are being asked to rezone 105 acres on the first nine holes of the course from single-family residential into a senior housing zone. The additional 66 acres across the street which comprise the back nine holes, is not a part of this project or proposed rezoning.

Until the town vote on April 30th, the project is still in proposal stage. That is why we are working hard to educate residents about it and ask for support.

In an effort to answer specific questions about this project please download this helpful PDF: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Fairways Edge at Sagamore. And look for more information to come on our Facebook page and Twitter.

New 55+ Active Adult Community Being Proposed in Lynnfield

Ron Bonvie of Bonvie Homes recently attended our 66th Annual Sales and Awards meeting and briefed our sales associates on his proposal to build a new 55+ Active Adult Community in Lynnfield. The planned residential community, called The Fairways Edge at Sagamore, would be located on 105 acres around Sagamore Springs Golf Course. It would also be the biggest new housing project in Lynnfield in the past 20-30 years.

Should voters at the Lynnfield town meeting on April 30th approve the needed rezoning, the golf course would remain and 154 attached units ranging from 2,400 - 3,000 sq. ft. would be built in clusters of duplexes, triplexes, and quads. Each residence would feature a first floor master suite, full lower level, and attached two-car garage. 

Ron Bonvie is a nationally known developer specializing in over 55+ communities. His award-winning developments have been recognized by the National Association of Home Builders 55+ Housing Council for "Best Active Adult Community in America" and "Best Home Design in America."

In the months leading up to the Town meeting, there will be a number of meetings and presentations scheduled for Lynnfield residents and neighbors to learn more about this exciting new community.

7 Reasons to Work With a REALTORģ

7 Reasons to Work With a REALTOR®

REALTORS® aren’t just agents. They’re professional members of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribe to its strict code of ethics. This is the REALTOR® difference for home buyers:

  1. Ethical treatment. Every REALTOR® must adhere to a strict code of ethics, which is based on professionalism and protection of the public. As a REALTOR®’s client, you can expect honest and ethical treatment in all transaction-related matters. The first obligation is to you, the client.
  2. An expert guide. Buying a home usually requires dozens of forms, reports, disclosures, and other technical documents. A knowledgeable expert will help you prepare the best deal, and avoid delays or costly mistakes. Also, there’s a lot of jargon involved, so you want to work with a professional who can speak the language.
  3. Objective information and opinions. REALTORS® can provide local information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. They also have objective information about each property. REALTORs® can use that data to help you determine if the property has what you need. By understanding both your needs and search area, they can also point out neighborhoods you don’t know much about but that might suit your needs better than you’d thought.
  4. Expanded search power. Sometimes properties are available but not actively advertised. A REALTOR® can help you find opportunities not listed on home search sites and can help you avoid out-of-date listings that might be showing up as available online but are no longer on the market.
  5. Negotiation knowledge. There are many factors up for discussion in a deal. A REALTOR® will look at every angle from your perspective, including crafting a purchase agreement that allows enough time for you to complete inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase.
  6. Up-to-date experience. Most people buy only a few homes in their lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. Even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations change. REALTORS® handle hundreds of transactions over the course of their career.
  7. Your rock during emotional moments. A home is so much more than four walls and a roof. And for most people, property represents the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay focused on the issues most important to you.

    I snagged the term ftoorgten from my professor, which she used to describe the book on the first day of class. I assume she meant it relative other slave narratives. The upcoming movie may be the reason for the sudden resurgence of print copies, too.The version I purchased was the only one available at the universtiy book store, so I did not have the opportunity to compare it with other versions. Actually, this book was sitting in a stack on the top shelf (my eye-level), so all I saw were about ten blank spines. I had to pick it up to verify it was the correct book. I liked the text, but hate this version. I'll probably sell this one back to the school store when the class is completed, then take my fifty cents and put it toward a superior version.
