Get Off the fence and Into the Water!

by Linda Kendz at 12am, Jun 26th, 2012

It is a perfect time to get off the fence and take a leap to invest in your future of good times, peaceful weekends and family traditions. Kent County has a wide variety of waterfront properties available, and there are fifty properties available in the range from $335,000 to $995,000. The market is heating up as more well priced listings receive offers, and mortgage interest rates remain incredibly low. This trend is expected to continue, and listings for waterfront properties will become increasingly scarce. So, now is the time to buy.

There is something here for everyone. From secluded creeks for paddling, to deep open waters with expansive views, to harbored marinas, youíll find what you like. There are bungalows among tall trees and contemporary properties with decks and private piers. Each one is just as unique as the next.

The Upper Eastern Shore of Maryland is within two hours of Washington, DC or Philadelphia, PA, so this makes for an easy weekend getaway. Kent County is comprised of 277 square miles, and has hundreds of miles of waterways that flow out to the Chesapeake Bay. In addition to recreation on the water, the area offers acres and acres of scenic farmland, miles of nature trails to hike and country roads for bicycling. Take the kids berry picking, horseback riding or on a hike and spot bald eagles. Enjoy great restaurants, outdoor festivals and concerts, historic sites, and unique antique shops.

Thereís so much more to learn about this beautiful area. Contact us for information about available properties, and the many amenities that the upper shore has to offer. Soon, you could be creating great memories for your family. More…

Presidents Day! John Carroll is Elected

Sassafras River Business Council Elects John for President

They say if you want to get something done ask the busiest person, and it will get done. With as many projects as John has going, heís the one to get things done. So, as the newly elected president of the business council, it is without a doubt that he will bring more attention to the local business community.

He is looking to increase active participation in the organization, inviting interested citizens to join, and to broaden the circulation of the monthly newsletter to keep people informed of whatís going on with local businesses.

Johnís been busy for the past year, changing the face of Main Street in Galena. He had purchased the building where the Galena Antiques Center had operated for twenty five years, and has been renovating it ever since. Itís the big red building that will catch your eye right in the center of town. John has created a vibrant atmosphere in the store, and has more than twenty dealers displaying merchandise. Itís well worth checking out occasionally, because thereís always something new coming in.

Also new is the location of Village Real Estate Company! The office is in the front of the building adjacent to the store. Itís definitely a good change, and John sees it as a good cross marketing tool, as customers can visit both businesses. In addition, Linda is serving as secretary for the business council. More…
