Crunchy Asian Coleslaw

This salad is a go-to favorite of ours all year long but as we finally start to string some  beautiful New England summer days together, I am starting to crave it even more!  Blue skies, warm sun, eating outside…. time to bring out some classic summer recipes and we  love our classic Asian coleslaw!!

Crunchy Asian Coleslaw

Crunchy Asian SlawOne of my favorite side dishes … great served with cod, haddock, salmon, chicken, pork, or my kids love it paired with pot stickers 🙂 For a main dish, just add chicken and serve. I always make a double batch of dressing, toast up half a bag of almonds, and cut up the whole bunch of scallions then store them in the refrigerator. I can then whip this recipe up in just minutes!

1 3-ounce packet of chicken flavor ramen noodles broken into ½ inch piece
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
¼ cup canola oil
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
¼ cup sugar
½ teaspoon ground pepper
1 ½ cups cubed cooked chicken (optional)
½ cup slivered almonds, toasted (can do in fry pan with some butter)
¼ cup chopped green onion
1 10-ounce bag of broccoli, confetti, or coleslaw (I use half broccoli slaw/half cole slaw)

In small bowl, mix rice wine vinegar, canola oil, sesame oil, sugar, pepper, and I just use half of the chicken seasoning packet from the ramen noodles. Mix ramen noodles, chicken, almonds, green onion, and coleslaw together. Add dressing. Chill 30 minutes turning occasionally. Then enjoy!!!

Look no further… build your dream home at Brigham Hill! Model Open Saturday 12:00-2:00

Brigham Hill Estates WelcomeBrigham Hill Estates by Jen McMorran, New Construction and First Time Home Buyer SpecialistTired of searching through listings and waiting for the perfect home to be listed for sale?  Is it time to consider building your dream home and Brigham Hill Estates in Attleboro’s is the community to build it in!  As Attleboro’s premier builder, WB Construction’s custom homes truly set the bar for all new subdivisions in the area.

~OPEN HOUSE, Saturday, April 29~
12:00-2:00

Lot 205/215 Ingall Lane
Brigham Hill Estates
Attleboro, MA

(Directions: Slater Street to Teaberry Lane to Ingall Lane
OR Brigham Hill Rd to Teaberry to Ingall Lane.)IMG_1487

Lot 215 Ingall Lane in Phase II of Brigham Hill Estates will be closing in the middle of May.  Now is the time to tour and start working on the layout, design details, and amenities you would like to include in your new home.

These buyers went with a very soothing and neutral palate in terms of color but the high end finishes certainly shine through.  Their choices create a home that is the perfect backdrop for any furnishings,  fun pops of color, and the warmest of  welcomes to anyone as they step through the front door.  Check out the photo gallery below then stop by the Open House or contact me for a private tour (Jen McMorran 508-930-5259, jen.mcmorran@gmail.com).  It is worth seeing the pride and workmanship that go into these WB Construction homes!  Pricing all based on plans and designs but homes are starting in the high $500’s.

 It is no wonder Phase I is sold out and Phase II only has a few remaining lots.  But don’t worry, Brigham Hill Phase IIIwe have just received approval so to open the next 20  lots on Pass Farm Road which will connect Ingall Lane to Slater Street.

 The Spring 2017 market is exciting but can also be a tough, fast paced time for buyers as inventory of great homes coming on the market tends to be low. When nice homes hit the market, competition for them is high often with multiple offers and above list sale prices.  Building could be a great option to ensure your next home is the right one for you, but I am also very happy to help navigate the current housing market with you in the search for an existing home to purchase.  I cover all price ranges and completely commit to my clients no matter what their budget it is.  (In fact, I love working with first time home buyers and sellers!!)

What it takes!

Wonderful-wooded-lot
SOLD!!  36 Pole Plain, Sharon   $348,000

As many of my clients have learned this fall, real estate can be hard work!  There can be so many variables involved in a deal that are tough to predict.  I love to pull up statistics and analyze data, but in the end, data can’t always predict buyer or seller behavior.  After all, it is people we are dealing with when buying and selling homes. And people vary immensely when it comes to their motivations, negotiating styles, and values.

I hear so often from other professionals in my field…
Open houses don’t sell houses.
Print media like newspaper ads and mailings don’t do anything.
Zillow is all that matters.
Social media is the key.
Search Engine Optimization should be an agent’s focus.

The fact is, we don’t know exactly what will resonate with each specific buyer or seller out in the market place.  When listing your property, my job as a Realtor is to assist you with preparing your home to hit the market and then to expose your property to as many likely buyers as possible.  I need to have a good working knowledge of your property  and understand any objections buyers may have so I can address those with solutions whether immediately or with a follow up call or e-mail. When with potential buyers at your home, I am constantly trying to gauge what aspects of you property or location might be most important to highlight with each buyer through simple questions and careful listening.   Not everyone is able to make a decision right away, that is where my patience and persistence pay off.   And then it is making sure your property is constantly being exposed whether on-line, through print media, or networking with other agents.  My job is to sell your home and I will do what it takes to get it Sold!

I recently worked with Liz and Ed to list and sell their home at 36 Pole Plain Road in Sharon.  So wonderful to assist them as they begin a whole new journey with their family and the testimonial below from them was an added bonus – it truly sums up what I work towards in all of my client relationships.

And, in case you were wondering, the buyers were a result of coming to two of my open houses!

Happy First Time Home Sellers!

Jen McMorran, a sign of good things to comeWe certainly spend a lot of time as Realtors focusing on the First Time Home Buyer and developing programs to help them succeed in the most uncertain world of real estate.   Many often forget that being on the home selling side of a transaction for the first time can be a whole new world of Real Estate as well.  I don’t make any assumptions about my clients’ real estate prowess.  I like to give an over view of the whole process when we first meet and then handle each deal step by step as it progresses.   When selling your first home, you have a different set of responsibilities and will be negotiating from a whole different perspective.   Having years of experience working on both sides of transactions, I understand how to guide sellers when making decisions throughout the process.  I assist in preparing a home to sell, pricing a property, marketing your home to prospective buyers and agents, guiding you through what can be a tedious negotiating  process, and  helping you find just the right next home.

Whether you are buying your first home, selling your first home, building your first home, haven’t experienced a real estate transaction in years, or feel like a seasoned real estate investor… laws and processes are always changing.  You can rely on me to communicate through the entire process, be available for consultations, and generally make sure we are constantly moving forward in a transaction.  My goal is always to produce Results that Move You!
