Honestly, the schools were much better before park lane was built. it is a community of 500 hones that all look alike. It's in west harrison, however because these people think they are rich, they get to go to Purchase School. The school is sooo overcrowded because of Park Lane. I am a real Purchase resident and my taxes went up to accomodate them since the school needed an extra wing, more teachers, etc...and in doing so, my kids got stuck in classes with obnoxious Park Lane kids, I had to endure a packed parking lot ( as Park Lane refuses to ride the bus) and of course, my kids conveniently got placed in classes where the teachers were hired maybe the week before. Purchase lost all of it's charm and diversity when park Lane was built..they are nouveau riche, all look talk and act the same, and the houses are ugly! ... more

There are many homes available that fit your needs. I suggest you find an agent with whom you develop a relationship and have confidence in to do your leg work. I would be glad to speak with you if you want advise or guidance.

Hi Denise,

The only property type that you will find in the town of Harrison in that price range is a condo or co-op. These properties are located in downtown Harrison. Purchase is part of Harrison. You will find single family rentals in Purchase starting at $5800 up to $30,000.

good morning joe..
by the rates you are quoting (jumbo arm's) it seems you are looking for investment properties..
am i correct?
if this is true, you are in it for the short term (you want to flip the properties) ...
at the rates you are being quoted that is extremely good as you do not intend to keep
the properties long anyway..
please give me some additional details so i can better answer your question..

You can see from your responses that many of your competitors are highly negative toward a discount or buyer incentive based broker model. That sure isn't helping you because that type of sentiment spreads quickly. Ads can't even make a dent in it. You'll have to be proactive. Start with a major phone campaign. You need to introduce yourself quickly to a large group and the phone is the quickest way to do it. You can also use email if your MLS doesn't forbid it. When using email always include some item of value like a tech tip, cool website link, or new market information. Without something of value, recruiting emails are just spam. Then, get out of the office. Go to open houses, Realtor functions etc. and introduce yourself and your new company. Create a hot list of prospects that seemed receptive and use a mail campaign to stay in touch with them regularly. Develop recruiting content on your office website that you can direct people to. It should include a virtual tour and introduction of all the staff. Those are a few ideas that may help. Good luck. ... more
