Real Estate Market Stats – Larchmont & Mamaroneck 2017

While I had wanted to post year end stats in a detailed breakdown by price point and zip code for each town, I also wanted to wait and a see how the year was PROGRESSING.  What will the effects be with their new tax laws in each town, how will  classroom sizes in Larchmont be affected?

Each year brings new challenges whether for the buyers or sellers, and we, as Realtors, endeavor to sense how the market will develop even though past sales always play a huge part in pricing.

I realize that real estate can be touted across the United States as being strong, great, a seller’s market, etc., but we must always look to the real estate on a local level. Always. There are always market trends locally that will dictate how we list, price a home, and aid us in the bidding process also.

As I am writing this newsletter, I am hearing of multiple bidding in Larchmont which proves yet again that the area with its European flavor attracts buyers, the schools have great stats, and the School Board and Superintendent of Schools,  Dr. Shaps, are working hard to keep parents informed on the subject of overcrowding and the possible solutions to keep everyone happy.

The buyers are ‘out there’. When we look at the sales stats below, we can readily see that homes priced less were more apt to sell quickly, and there was a softening the higher priced homes in all areas.  Buyers as a rule do not want to ‘do the renovation themselves’ and are seeking homes that are renovated. Interest rates were low, and still are (Fixed rate right now around 3.78 for a 15 year fixed loan), but it is always easier to buy a renovated home as the renovation costs have been incorporated into  the sales price.. It will be interesting to see if  the inventory will be larger in Larchmont this year, and where the sales will go. (I will cover that mid year!).

2017 Real Estate Market Stats for New Rochelle

While I had wanted to post year end stats in a detailed breakdown by price point and zip code for each town, I also wanted to wait and a see how the year was PROGRESSING. For example,  what will the effects be with their new tax laws in each town.

Each year brings new challenges whether for the buyers or sellers, and we, as Realtors, endeavor to sense how the market will develop even though past sales always play a huge part in pricing.

I realize that real estate can be touted across the United States as being strong, great, a seller’s market, etc., but we must always look to the real estate on a local level. Always. There are always market trends locally that will dictate how we list, price a home, and aid us in the bidding process also.

The buyers are ‘out there’. When we look at the sales stats below, we can readily see that homes priced less were more apt to sell quickly, and there was a softening the higher priced homes in all areas.  Buyers as a rule do not want to ‘do the renovation themselves’ and are seeking homes that are renovated. Interest rates were low, and still are (Fixed rate right now around 3.78 for a 15 year fixed loan), but it is always easier to buy a renovated home as the renovation costs have been incorporated into  the sales price..

I am quite hopeful for 2018 based on the people I am seeing at the open houses, and time will tell! There are always people who need to sell, who need to buy, and when you look at the costs of private schools in the city compared to our great  schools in the suburbs, with all of the other added advantages such as beaches, water sports, golf, tennis, sports programs, Westchester is a great place in which to reside!

Since New Rochelle is a city, and has different zip codes, I always like to break down the home sales prices by zip code, Elementary School and different price points.

New Rochelle 10804 

This would cover both Davis and Ward Schools but since many people search by zip code, I thought I would first include them together, and then separate by Elementary School. However,  since this is by zip code, the 10583 (Davis School) would not be covered in this compilation. Davis School is reflected precisely below.

$0-599,000 There were 21 homes sold in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $311.90, sales price to original list price ratio of 93.59%. There were 5 homes that sold over list price.

In 2016, there were 36 homes sold with an average price per square foot of $287.50, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 94.39%. 10 homes sold over list price.

It  would at first glance appear  that the inventory was lower in 2017 with a slight softening on the sales price. However, when we look into the next price point  of $600,000 -$799,000, we can see that a few more homes were sold  in 2017, so the market indicates that people priced higher based on the stronger sales market, , obtaining a slightly less price per square foot  but still with 25 homes selling over the list price. The market is very robust in this price point.

$600,000- $799,000 There were 76 homes sold in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $318.16, sales price to original list price ratio of 96.47%.  25 homes sold over list price.

In 2016, 68 homes were sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $325.83, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 96.07%. 15 homes sold over list price.

$800,000 – $999,000 There were 36 homes sold in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $322.22, sales price to original price ratio of 95.35%.  12 homes sold over list price. 9 homes sold over list price.

In 2016, 33 homes sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $305.60, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 94.14%. 7 homes sold over list price.

Once again,  more homes were sold in 2017 in the $800-999,000 price point, reflecting a stronger market in this price range.

In the Million to $1,199,000 price range, prices stayed approximately the same. However, as an active agent, I would interject that the buyers were seeking perfection more so than ever before!

$1,000,000 – $1,199,999 14 homes sold in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $309.62, sales price to original list price ratio of 93.08%. 3 homes sold over list price.

In 2016, 15 homes were sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $303.96, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 93.59%. One home sold over list price.

$1,200,000 – $1,499,000 11 homes sold in the price range in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $301.74, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 94.20%. 2 homes sold over list price.

In 2016, 13 homes were sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $343.53, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 92.46%. 4  homes sold over list price.

The market was again a tad stronger in 2016 in the higher price ranges  with higher  price per square foot.

$1,500,000 + 4 homes sold in this price category in 2017 with an average price square foot of $316.74, and a sales price to original list price ratio of 90.26%. One home sold at list price.

In 2016, 6 homes were sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $337.62, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 86.77%.

William B. Ward School  

When we break down the two elementary schools,  we start to see the different appeal of each area. More homes sold in this price point in 2016, but once again, we are seeing slightly more homes selling in 2017 in the next price point. Price were square foot was quite similar in the lesser priced homes, but increased nicely in the next price point.

$0-$599,000 29 homes sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $244.64, and an average sales price to original list price of 96.43%. Eight homes sold over the original list price.

In 2016, 43 homes sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $246.28, and an average sales price to original list price of 94.49%. 3 homes sold over list price.

$600,000 – $799,000 56 homes sold in this price range in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $305.74, and an average sales price to original  list price ratio of 96.06%. 7 homes sold over list price.

In 2016, 51 homes sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $306.72, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 96.35%. 6 homes sold over list price.

In the $800,000 – $999,000 price range, the sales were very similar year over year.

$800,000 – $999,000 23 homes sold in this price range in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $288.36, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 96.19%. 6 homes sold over the list price.

In 2016, 25 homes sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $289.43, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 93.35%. 6 homes sold over list price.

In the $1,100,000 – $1,199,000 price range, prices per square foot were higher in 2017 which was great, a few more homes were sold also, but more homes were sold in the $1.2 -$1,499,000 price range  in 2016 and with a higher price per square foot.. So, a little softer in 2017.

$1,000,000 – $1,199,000 18 homes sold in the price range with an average price per square foot of $312.79, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 93.71%. 3 homes sold over list price.

In 2016, 13 homes were sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $293.87 and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 94.96%. 2 homes sold over list price.

$1,200,000 – $1,499,000 7 homes sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $300.92, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 94.86%. 2 homes sold over the list price.

In 2016, 10 homes were sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $324.52, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 89.12%. 2 homes were sold in this price range.

$1,500,000 + 3 homes sold in this price range in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $350.48 and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 89.90%. One home sold over list price.

In 2016, 4 homes were sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $318.53, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 81.99%. One home sold over list price.

It is always interesting to see how certain homes sell, and some don’t, and when I look at the higher priced sold homes  (over $1.5), it should be noted that one new home sold in 2017, plus two beautiful homes  (one with a profit from when it was purchased, and the other home sold for $580000 less than its original sales price. This tells us that the market was not sustaining the higher priced homes in this area.

George Davis Elementary School  – Larchmont Woods and Beechmont

As we look to the Davis Elementary School  area,  it is apparent that the homes sell for higher amounts, which would indicate a more desirable area.  In the $600,000 – $799,000 price range, prices were stronger in 2017. Traditionally, the homes in Larchmont Woods and the Beechmont area, perhaps because of their closer proximity to Larchmont, tend to be valued higher and sell for more. Plus, there is a beautiful estate area in the Beechmont area.

$0-$599,000 One home sold in this price range in 2017 with a price per square foot of $306.46, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 87.76%.

In 2016, 2 homes sold in this price range at an average price per square foot of $198.45, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 95.38%.

$600,000 – $799,000 8 homes sold in this price range in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $361.27, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 100.99%. 5 homes sold over list price.

In 2016, 8 homes sold in this price range with an average price per square foot of $346.45, and  an average sales price to original list price ratio of 96.18%. One home sold over list price.

More homes sold in 2017 in the $800,000 – $999,000 price range with a higher price per square foot – all indicating a slightly stronger market.

$800,000 – $999,000 15 homes sold in this price range in 2017 with an average price per square foot of $363.83, and an average sales price to original list price ratio of 95.90%. 7 homes sold over the list price.

Davis Elementary School –

This area is  closer to the Scarsdale area, and some homes can feature a Scarsdale P.O. which can be confusing to buyers, but still New Rochelle.  Prices per square foot were higher in 2017 -indicating a stronger market yet again.

This school district  also covers the waterfront communities , and so you will always see a vast disparity in sales prices, depending upon where the home is located. People love water views!  More homes sold in 2016 in the price ranges up to $799,000. Prices were similar in the home sales over $1.2 Million.

It should be noted that there are several homes listed in the New Rochelle ‘Choice School’ category but the majority of those homes were listed incorrectly by agents who were not local.  While I could include them in the correct categories, I have decided to leave them out as they would not be shown in a search, and could be confusing.

I am here for all of your real estate needs!

New Rochelle is GREAT!

End of a Luge Career – AJ Rosen Great Britain

It is rather bittersweet as I write this blog post.  My son, AJ who has been experiencing, rejoicing and loving luge since the age of 12, is retiring at the age of 33. As a youngster, he loved uniforms, and as he grew older, one uniform was replaced by another!  Soccer, Baseball, Football, Civil Air Patrol and finally luge.

He now aspires to become a commercial pilot ( another uniform!), and flew solo when he was 16 at an Embry Riddle Aeronautical University summer camp and the Mach 11 Space Camp . He has flown flight simulators with the British Military, at home,  and knows so much about flight and aeronautics, he is a natural . He has always loved speed,  was always shy and  very quiet, and so I would send him to Space Camp in Alabama when he was young (12)  paying the airline to chaperone him on the flight. I thought by his wanting to do something he loved, would help him to express himself.  Being in the Civil Air Patrol, also brought him closer to his love of flying. He won a scholarship to Space camp for a week, and was also Sergeant of the Year for the Civil Air Patrol when he was 14.

On another level, AJ loves speed. When I signed him up for what I thought would be just a fun half day luge program in Queens, ( children sliding down a ramp from a  truck with hay bales on the curbside ), I saw it as a way to spend the morning with his brother and friends, and for $20 each, they all had a t-shirt too! I never thought he would be invited to a luge screening camp in Lake Placid! Oh my!

AJ was just 14 when he became the fastest luge athlete for athletes under the age of 16. Duncan Kennedy  (a three time Olympian and coach) had seen the promise in AJ, and  elevated him from one luge level to another, and I think thus upsetting the powers that be!  He was not invited to join the team participating in the World Cup International  level, and was told to be Number One again. He competed well but never Number One again as his contemporaries were able to advance their training on a World Cup level on different tracks.  Realizing that the US would be dropping him once he turned 18, I decided to  make AJ a dual citizen with Great Britain (I am British), and Duncan  (who narrated the Luge Olympics for NBC in Korea  this year and other Olympics), suggested he contact Great Britain to recommend AJ  be on their team. He/we did, and AJ was accepted.

Rupert, AJ and Brett

Great Britain was never known for winter events, and so we would pay anywhere from $12000 – $25000 a year (non of it tax deductible -ha!)  to help fund his sport. At that time, there was partial funding which was great but not enough. Never enough, especially when the Germans  spend over 40 Million Euros on their training program. Money brings forth results.  Luge is revered in Germany. SO funny but I can recall a German top slider came to stay with us for a few days; a really nice young man, and before he left, he left us a thank you  gift. Several  autographed postcards. THAT is the significance of German luge. He was a celebrity!

A.J. has been cited as having the fastest finish as a Brit in a World Cup Race. He came in 6th place in Calgary  2009   . HOWEVER, what isn’t noted is the fact that the reason he came in 6th was that he had borrowed a TRAINING sled from the Canadians! Not a competition sled but a training sled.  AJ only has one sled!  He would ordinarily finish  in 20th, 27th place finishes which was great…but never  6th.. That finish made it quite obvious that you can have the talent, but you also need the equipment in order to succeed.

A.J., Shannon and Brett

AJ came in 16th in Turin .. He was faster than 2 American athletes who he had been bypassed for, and the American  Tony Benshof, who beat him, had those extra 10 years experience under his belt also. USA asked him to return but how could he? He was/is always honorable. He stayed with Great Britain. They had allowed him to compete even though the funding was not there.

AJ trained for another 4 years, again on  a limited basis with no financed summer/fall training, etc.  He went to Whistler to train in the fall after no financed summer training . The track there was very dangerous. He had been training with the Canadians during the season, and the coach,  Wolfgang Staudinger,  in trying to help him with a little extra track time to make up for the lack thereof,  offered  him a few extra runs on the track.  After going down the track more than usual,  he was very tired, and in that split second,  he crashed.  Athletes slide maybe 2-3 times a day. It is grueling, facing G forces,  and requires every muscle and total attention.  AJ  was sliding down 7 times that day trying to make up on the 100+ runs the other athletes had already on the track, that he had missed.  This was in October before the Olympics, and his hip was dislocated, he had nerve damage. He was told by a doctor, it would take him 3 years to walk properly again. Are you kidding?   A.J. had places to go. Interestingly,  as fate would have it,  this was days before he learned that  he had been awarded a generous donation for a new sled from film producer and sports enthusiast, Russ Malkin.  After the extensive physical therapy, AJ returned to the sport to both qualify for the Olympics, and he was actually finishing in the top 10 during practice, but after the crash and death of a young athlete  Nodar Kumaritashvili     ,   the track was shortened, and the starts became more important, which really helped the Germans . AJ did not have the reach after his accident,  his starts were slower, and he always made up the time in speed and driving the sled.  With a shortened track,  it became a start competition in a sense. He came in 16th again which was wonderful, but that also meant no funding from Great Britain. He had required a top ten finish for funding. No one realized that what he had accomplished was wonderful.

Mark Armstrong (Brigadier,  Retired)  who has been great, was able to secure some funding,  but only after a year out of the circuit, and then on a limited sliding and competing basis. We had to withdraw our support with a son in college, and so AJ was on his own. AJ had the same qualifications for Sochi  and more so than he had in Whistler,  but a manager  ( who was a past Olympian himself )  decided AJ needed MORE qualifications than in Whistler which was not reasonable based on the fact he hadn’t been sliding  more but far far  less. Less training, less world cup races, less everything.  Great Britain luge had requested in  writing a 4 year commitment from AJ, which meant he could not pursue any other endeavor,  just  taking part time jobs during off season,  but they weren’t able to give him their commitment  for after those 4 years and same goals had been reached which was rather upsetting to me on many levels.  Four years gone. I was not amused as they say.

At that point, we had begged AJ to quit the sport, but he has loved luge, the many International friends he has made, the joy of flying around the world (Japan, France,  England, Norway, Russia, Italy, Canada, Germany, Austria, Latvia, Korea),  and growing so much as a person. He has learned to speak in front of a classroom,  he has been interviewed so many times and is now so relaxed, has commentated World cup races beautifully  and he always comports himself brilliantly. It has been an education in itself. He has made  life long friends  in every country,  has even been invited to luncheon with Her Royal Highness Princess Anne twice whilst at the Olympics! Wow! A life time experience.  He met her for a third time yesterday at the Great Britain Headquarters  in  the Olympic village too.  Princess Anne has always been supportive to all of the athletes.

With no  singles funding, A.J. was asked to do doubles these past 4 years, and he has been sliding with Ray Thompson. It was his only way to stay in the sport.

There has been no central funding,  but his  doubles partner,  Ray Thompson,  and friend,  had received some funding which helped them compete.   It was only halfway through the fall of 2017 that he was asked to slide as a single luger once again. The Honorable  Michael Howard  who had been a luger himself, suggested that it was important for Great Britain to participate in the event as a nation if they ever wanted to obtain funding , and AJ should be sliding on their behalf. Bless Mike Howard. The qualifications were far  less stringent than those of Sochi, and AJ qualified along with his teammate,   Rupert Staudinger.

Rupert Staudinger,  who has a British mom and German father , and  Rupert’s uncle also happens to be the great German Coach , Wolfgang  Staudinger.  We knew  A.J.  would not finish in the top 10. I still feel he had the capability. His lines were beautiful., but  if only he had that sled and more training…. if only if only… Life isn’t as easy … No regrets..  We are so proud of AJ that he competed, and was able to enjoy one last Olympics.  I am glad he didn’t listen to us and quit.  I was always taught as a child that there is no such word as ‘no’. I am happy he pursued his dream. So, A.J.  finished in 22nd place out of 40 athletes. Without Mark Armstrong and Mike Howard he would not have competed . He should have competed in Sochi.  That was heartbreaking.  This should have been his 4th Olympics and not his third. It was SO important for Great Britain to compete. As a commentator noted, without central funding of any kind, a benefactor is needed to help the athletes in this sport.  Rupert Staudinger  at 20 shows promise, came in 33rd,  BUT he needs support. You can NEVER expect results unless it is well funded.

I also heard that Korea had invested money  into  hiring German coaches, and buying decent equipment. When AJ was sliding (with perfect lines)  I heard a commentator comment on the ‘noise his sled made’. Ha! Ashley Walden, a past Olympian  said it was because of different  technologies used.  NO, it was because it was a less efficient sled Ashley, and not of the caliber of the other sleds..  When I think back on his finishing so much better on a borrowed training sled ….  it makes you wonder.  In luge, the time difference between the first and last athletes are within a few seconds. I heard how the coaches were preparing the sleds for the races.  The kufens needed to be calibrated perfectly for each race. A.J. had no one. Many nations pay their athletes during their training. It enables them to study off season, purchase a home, and make life comfortable.  There is none from England.  A sports commentator mentioned that it might have hurt AJ to compete in both doubles and singles during the season . Did he have  a choice? Other nations have training sleds, racing sleds and different kufens too. They have Porsche sleds! A.J. had one sled and one set of kufens which he has to sharpen, work on by himself.

I was thrilled to see Chris Mazder win his silver medal and the first ever  US medal in luge for a male luger. What a great accomplishment, and I was also heartbroken that Felix Loch lost . Yes, he had obtained three gold medals previously, but he is a superb athlete. Someone must always lose.  Straightaway, though, other athletes hugged, consoled, and gave support. That is the luge family.  David Gleirscher of Austria won the gold after 50 years since the country had last won!  How grand too! In luge, you share your joy, comfort each other in your losses , and embrace the experience always. You work towards tomorrow.  Always working towards tomorrow .  THAT is what makes an Olympian.

I was not able to travel to Korea to see AJ race, but I wanted to make it special by celebrating the experience in my office with an Alpine lunch.  Charcroute Garni ( Bratwurst and Sauerkraut,  Venison Pate, French rolls, salad,  Apple Strudel, Beer and wine (of course!), I apologize to my associates and thank them for humoring me, but it was fun for me and I rejoiced in my son via my office, and it made me smile! I felt as if I was there and celebrating A.J. from afar!   My younger son, Brett who is currently playing baseball in Australia traveled to Korea with Shannon, his lovely  girlfriend, to see A.J.  and are loving it there.  He loves the food! I love ‘WHATSAPP!”

As a footnote, our country is comprised of so many Nationalities by origin and American by citizenship which makes us great,  Many people do not realize the total dedication, time  and monetary expense given by an athlete and their families . Many sports fund their athletes, and many do not.  NBC only showed the top athletes because of TV time constraints and ratings.  You had to really search to see an athlete on line. I, as a parent, had to access Eurosport  in Great Britain in order to see the event in its entirety, live.  If you weren’t in the top line up, you were forgotten. So many people asked where they could see A.J. and could not understand that they wouldn’t be able to. I am sure many other parents of athletes had the same issue.

Hopefully, it will be different in the future. Every athlete is deserving of recognition.

I am also hoping that Great Britain will recognize the fact that each sport needs funding. SO much money was allotted to the London Summer Olympic Games – just so they could win medals. It should be the same for winter sports also. Rupert Staudinger shows great promise, but he will need some monetary assistance.

SO, it is farewell to this sport, and oh my! What an experience!

Westchester is GREAT!

AJ Rosen – Three time Olympic Athlete for Great Britain Luge

Oh my!  My son, AJ Rosen, is going to be competing in his third Olympics for Great Britain in the sport of luge ! He arrived in Korea over the weekend, and is thrilled to be there. He has proudly sent photos of his ‘kit’ and uniform. 

It has been such a journey for him, and while he will be retiring after the Olympics (he is 33), he has greatly enjoyed the experience, the lifelong friends he has made, and the opportunity to have been able to travel the globe for so many years. A  life experience in so many ways.  As a Brit, I encouraged my children to obtain their British passports, and they have cherished the experience of being both a Brit and an American!  Who does he take after? Certainly not me. I cannot stand heights or speed, so AJ is definitely his own person!

A.J. Rosen of Great Britain takes a practice run during the men’s singles luge training session at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics in Whistler, British Columbia, Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2010. (AP Photo/Michael Sohn)

AJ has always loved speed,  perhaps as a result of attending the air shows (Dad and Grandad were in the US Air Force).  (AJ’s other Grandad was in the British Merchant Navy).  AJ flew solo when he was 16 when he  attended the Embry-Riddle summer camp programs, was a Sergeant of the Year when he was 14 when he was a member of the Civil Air Control, won a trip to the NASA Space Camp in Alabama when he was also 14 (he had already attended the camp there 6 times),  and in short, he always loved uniforms!

After the  1996 Olympics, he saw a luge try out event advertised in the area, and  after attending  a fun morning event where the young athletes would slide down from a truck’s ramp on a wheeled sled (with bales of hay to stop them from crashing too badly!), was selected to attend a training camp at Lake Placid. AJ was the Number One Luge Athlete in the US when he was just 14 for athletes 16 and under, came in 2nd at the Empire State Games when he was just  13 for athletes 16 and under but never made it to the World Cup circuit, and through the aid of Duncan Kennedy,  his former coach, friend,  and a three time Olympic athlete,  contacted the Great Britain Luge Association, and was accepted into their team.

I can still recall his traveling at the age of 18 to Germany, with his sled, his computer, and suitcase, not knowing the language, and traveling alone to a remote camp to meet strangers. He loved it and thrived on the experience. AJ was always soft spoken, and so the traveling really helped him to overcome his natural shyness.  At his first Olympics, AJ came in 16th,  outperforming  two Americans that he had been bypassed for.  The US asked AJ to return to their team, but  he was too honorable to leave Great Britain.

AJ was sliding quite well for his second Olympics in Vancouver, but had an accident on the tough course where another athlete had crashed to his death, 3 months before the Olympics. After dislocating his hip and tearing a nerve,  the doctors didn’t know whether he would be able to compete, but he not only qualified a month or so later, but came in 16th yet again!  However, no funding thereafter since he came in 16th and not in the top 10!

It has been difficult due to the lack of funding and quality of equipment, especially since the Germans have so much money allotted to them for sport each year ( I once read over 40 Million Euros), but the athletes are a family. A family of nations, of different cultures, and they  vacation together, travel and meet each other during the off seasons, and AJ has loved it.

I am not going to Korea, but funnily enough, my youngest son, Brett who is currently playing baseball in Australia (and who has played baseball for great Britain), is going to the Olympics to see AJ compete.  However, I will be arising at dawn to watch him compete, and I must admit that Olympic excitement has reached our home the closer we get to the event!

Go AJ – Go Great Britain!

Westchester is GREAT!

Lusardi’s – Fine Dining in Larchmont

To celebrate the sale of their home, I took clients and friends to Lusardi’s in Larchmont. They were leaving the area, and it was on their ‘bucket list’ one more time before they left. They ordered an appetizer which was a long time favorite of theirs, and it sounded unusual..” Fegatini al Balsamico”  which were Chicken livers  sauteed with  balsamic vinegar, mushrooms and caramelized onions in a Parmigiano basket and small salad…When the dish arrived, however, it looked so good , I HAD to order the same also.. So, delicious..

SO, this past Friday, and after a very hectic week, I decided to pop in and treat myself to this delectable dish. So good... and then being the cheeky person I am, called my friends to tell them that the dish was still just as good! With friends like me….

Lusardi’s is  located at 1885 Palmer Avenue, Larchmont, and reservations can be made at 914 834-5555.

Larchmont is GREAT!
