Another happy ending and new beginning…

Another happy ending at 19 Sheffield St in Attleboro, Massachusetts!

SOLD Justin and GiannaI could not be happier for these first time home buyers who fell in love with this meticulously maintained three bedroom ranch in their dream neighborhood and for the sellers who are now moving on to their next chapter.   Though we all hear about the importance of on-line real estate marketing  with buyers flocking to Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, and the multitude of social media sites… I know never to underestimate the importance of sticking to the basics and the traditional avenues of marketing as well.  In this case, just a couple of signs were enough to ignite of the process of bringing together this amazing home with the perfect buyers.

Within hours of me putting up the For Sale sign in front of the house on Sheffield Street along with a directional sign at the end on North Main St,  I received a call that some very excited buyers wanted to make an appointment and see the home as soon as possible.  They had been hoping a property would come available in this neighborhood, and couldn’t believe their luck.  After searching for a home through the fast paced Spring and Summer markets, they and their agent knew not to waste time.

Calls continued to come in that Saturday as buyers and agents noted the new listing on-line.   We had multiple offers submitted by Tuesday, with the sellers accepting the winning bid that evening.

These sellers clearly took pride in their home both inside and out which absolutely shined through in the marketing photos as well as when buyers toured in person.  What a pleasure to work with them to get their home marketed and sold quickly.    And what a nice feeling to know that they are passing on this gem to such appreciative first time home buyers who will absolutely enjoy it for years to come!!

If I can ever be of any assistance to you or anyone you know thinking about buying or selling a home, please feel free to contact me by phone 508-930-5259, text , e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com, or simply fill out the form below.  I love to work hard for my clients and their referrals!!

And the dragonfly winged off in to her new world of sun and air…

dragonfly“And the dragonfly winged off into her new world of sun and air.”
~ Doris Stickney

IMG_6374 (2)As many have heard, our dear sweet daughter Zoe passed away on March 19th, 2017.   I could not be more thankful for all of my friends, family, and community support – we truly are blessed to have you carry us along. Through it all, my real estate business has also carried on thanks to the hard work and dedication of my amazing team at Kensington Real Estate Brokerage – thank you, thank you for being there for my clients!

Celebrating Zoe McMorran

ZoeZoe DaZhi McMorran (16) passed away on March 19, 2017 just as the sun came out that afternoon.  Her final days were spent surrounded by love from family and close friends at her home in North Attleboro.

A sophomore at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School in Franklin Mass, Zoe explored the Early Education program as a freshman where her passion for children shined. She then joined the Culinary Arts where her creative side and food were a perfect match.  She truly enjoyed working with her classmates, teachers, and staff, and always looked forward to greeting the patrons at Gerry’s Place (Tri County’s own restaurant) with a smile on her face.

Zoe volunteered at Sacred Heart on Sunday’s assisting with the Children’s Liturgy of the Word program.   She also enjoyed her role at the World War1 Park and Zoo caring for the animals on the weekends and as a counselor in training for their summer camp.

Zoe lived life to the fullest embracing all that was offered.  Her positive attitude reminded others of the most important things in life like family, friends, and of course, food.  Her humor and smile easily turned tough situations into a good ones.   She loved her music and singing and she would never miss an opportunity to record a new track a The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp recording studio. She loved cooking and baking and couldn’t wait to try out recipes in her new Pioneer Woman cookbook.   A stroke left Zoe with some physical limitations but her determination, perseverance, and optimistic attitude allowed her to achieve greatness.  Zoe attended Loral Sims School of Dance Studio 1 and 2, where she enjoyed Lyrical, Ballet, and her most recent passion Musical Theatre.  And, Zoe loved her Tuesday evening art classes at M. Walker Studio where she got to explore and create in a variety of mediums alongside her sister Avery and some very special classmates.

From an early age, Zoe was ever the jokester.  All who met Zoe easily and immediately understood that she embraced every moment.  Her ability to connect with others was very special a simple “Good Morning” or “Hi” could change anyone’s day. Zoe’s self-confidence was admirable and an inspiration to others. Her smile was contagious, her laugh infectious, her sense of humor unique, and her ability to surreptitiously steal a person’s cellphone to take selfies or other random photographs was unparalleled.

Zoe sang, danced, and laughed her way through life.  Her simple approach to each day was a blessing and an opportunity to brighten other people’s lives.  Zoe’s passing reminds that her life is one to be celebrated.  Although we miss her presence terribly, she remains forever in our hearts.

Zoe leaves behind many wonderful teams of caregivers who provided the care, love, and support that enhanced and extended her life.   The teams at Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, and VNA Care and Hospice were devoted to Zoe and making life about living for which we are forever grateful.

Zoe is survived by her loving parents, Pat and Jen McMorran; and sister Avery McMorran of North Attleboro Massachusetts; paternal grandparents Phillip and Monica McMorran of Ridgefield Connecticut; Maternal grandmother Judy Watt of Sodus Point New York; and countless adoring cousins, aunts, and uncles.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather David Watt; cousin Vivian Watt, and her beloved dog Baxter.

Calling hours were held on Friday March 24, 2017, from 4-8 pm at Sacred Heart Church, North Attleboro, Massachusetts.  A celebratory funeral mass was held Saturday March 25, 2017 at 11:00 am at the Sacred Heart Church, North Attleboro, Massachusetts. A collation followed the service.

Donations be made in Zoe’s memory to:

 

Buyers ISO of Charm & Character

This will be a fun  home search that will take some patience
but a great couple so I know it will be worth it!!

This set of buyers is in search of a  home with tons of character and charm preferring pre-1960 and willing to go back all of the way to 1740s.

369-oldpost-rdThey definitely want a large lot – thinking 1+ acres – or even the illusion of a large lot if they found a home that abutted conservation/park/etc.  Currently they are living in a bungalow in a cute downtown neighborhood which was a nice place to start but now feeling too congested for them.   They are craving space, trees, and privacy.  Being close to a busy road won’t work for them. Antique lovers know homes built “back in the day” were purposefully located close to the road so quiet set-backs are not always easy to come by but, I found my antique colonial set back off the road so I know it’s possible.

Iantique-colonial-fireplacen terms of the home itself, they would like at least three bedrooms, minimum of two baths, a garage if possible, and charm, charm, charm (cookie cutter is just not going to do it for them.)  Some sort of “out” building or separate studio that could be used as a home office would be great – but even a separate space in the house could have potential.  She works from home and would like a feel of going to the office and then leaving it behind when done for the day.

60-short-st-tauntonFor location, they would like to be within 30-40 minutes of Providence.

Do you happen to know anyone in  Southeastern Massachusetts interested in selling a home like this?

We will be ready to get back to the house hunting in January so spread the word…

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!

It’s Crunchy Asian Coleslaw time!

This salad is a go-to favorite of ours all year long but the recent string of beautiful New England summer days is making me crave it even more!  Blue skies, warm sun, eating outside…. time to bring out some classic summer recipes and we still 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 potstickers 🙂 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!!!
