I am pleased to announce that I have moved my business to Real Living Ritter & Co. Real Estate as of March 31, 2010. I am very excited about this change and I'm confident that it will prove exciting and beneficial to my customers and clients as well.

I chose Real Living Ritter & Co. Real Estate after careful consideration because the company has the knowledge, professionalism, experience, and cutting edge technology to set itself apart from all others in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Their marketing plan, technology tools and resources fit in very well with my existing programs. Also, the company's Business Philosophy resonates with me:

Our product is the American Dream. Our service is to our customers, our community and the real estate industry. We are experienced, educated and prepared. We are guided in our pursuit by the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS┬«, and the laws and regulations of the Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission and other bodies of American law. Our inspiration is our gratitude to our country, our families and our customers. 

Joining me at the new company as part of my Team is Lennea Aurilia, a past client of mine previously licensed to sell real estate in New Jersey. Lennea is a Green Certified Real Estate Professional and a Certified Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource. She will be working directly with me to enhance the service offerings to my clients, and to expand the breadth and reach of my marketing programs.
