"Pam represented us both as a buyer’s agent for our co-op and a seller’s agent for our single-family home. She was an excellent choice for both. As a buyer’s agent, she helped us get a contract accepted in a seller’s market. When there was a possible last-minute glitch, she worked tirelessly on our behalf to address the issue in a way that worked out to our benefit. As a seller’s agent, she put in an unbelievable amount of work helping us get our house ready to sell. She had a long list of available contractors to do necessary repairs and improvements before we put the house on the market and, in many cases, worked directly with contractors and vendors to get the work done. She had great recommendations for staging the house and timing the sale. We ended up with multiple offers and the house sold well above the listing price. Through it all, she was a complete professional and a pleasure to work with. We couldn’t be happier that we chose her to represent us!"

Why Buy a Historic Home?

Character & charm

Old homes are known for their unique architecture and undeniable charm. Step into an older home and step back through time into a world of ornately carved fireplaces, antique accents, curved staircases, and more.

Historical significance

Most historic homes have at least one interesting story connected to them! While you might not know the history attached to your specific home, you can probably find some information about the historical significance of your neighborhood!

Potential financial benefits

Depending on where your home is located, you might get some tax incentives or other perks when buying a historic home. (You’ll definitely want to check with your agent about specific homes, though!)

Steady home values

Historic homes also tend to hold their values pretty well. Often, historic neighborhoods or districts require owners to keep their homes maintained and looking a certain way, which ensures that the neighborhood stays beautiful!
