139 Carpenter is a wonderful little hidden gem in the sought after West Mount Airy neighborhood where I grew up. It is not currently advertised as available for rent but has been on the market for a long time(priced wrong in this market) but perhaps they would consider a rental since it is not selling. It is listed for $459,000.
Ambler is also a nice town and there are others in the area. I think that the price point in which he is looking it will be difficult to find a single home with garage, pool and yard in either of these 2 neighborhoods but I am familiar with these and many other neighborhoods both urban and suburban. I have lived in Philadelphia and on the Main Line of Philadelphia all my life and with more information about your clients needs could give them a good education on the area.
Let me know more about their needs and I will be happy to assist. Please let me know more about your clients needs-where they are working, what their desired commute time is, and what their relocation time frame is, etc. The best way to contact me is my cellphone 610-308-0802 or by email email@example.com.
PS I do not pay referral fees on rentals but if he is purchasing would be happy to pay you a referral.... more
