Sid and Joe were getting ready to sell their home near Gorgas Park in Roxborough and were looking for a Realtor® to help them through the process. In our first conversation Sid had told me that she had seen my video on the Upper Roxborough Reservoir Preserve and reached out to me because they wanted to work with someone who knows and cares about the neighborhood and who does things like using video to help promote the neighborhood to the people who are most likely to love living in the area.

The Glenside market is tough for buyers right now so I’m especially happy to have helped these new Glenside residents with the purchase of their new home as they move from the city to the suburbs. Their purchase had a number of moving parts and challenges, including competing offers, but they had the best offer (though not the highest) and we were able to get them into their house.
How did they get the house even though they didn’t have the highest price? By offering some excellent terms we were able to make an offer that set the sellers minds at ease when it came to the possibility of the home sale falling through. In the end it made the difference and landed them the home.
Glenside is a suburban community in located in Montgomery County, PA. Glenside has areas in three different townships and school districts. The community is about a half hour drive from Center City Philadelphia (on the rare occasion you won’t hit traffic). It’s also served by the regional rail train line to Center City with it’s own train station. Keswick Village is a popular destination in the neighborhood for shopping and dining.
The most common homes found in Glenside are 3-4 bedroom detached homes with about 1700 square feet. The majority of homes in Glenside fall in the $200,000 to $300,000 price range. The median price is $265,000 (as of 10/2017).
Last week, my clients bought their new home in Philadelphia at 2601 Parkway Condos. After living in Brooklyn, it was time to relocate to be closer to the kids and the grandkids who live here in Philadelphia. At first, there were plenty of things up in the air. Getting familiar with Center City’s neighborhoods was the first challenge so we toured condos in Old City, Society Hill, Rittenhouse Square, and Fairmount to get a feel what the neighborhoods offered. Fairmount turned out to be the top contender since it’s a little bit outside of the hustle of Center City but has plenty of shops and restaurants.
The entire family was in the living room with us when the decision to make an offer was made. They all agreed it would be a perfect new home (and that moment with all of us in the living room will be one that will always stick with me).
The unit was a newly remodeled 2 bedroom with an amazing terrace overlooking the Fairmount neighborhood on one side and the Philadelphia Waterworks and University City on the other. The building has a shuttle bus to get residents around the city, a community room for large gatherings, and a really nice gym. The condo association has an office in the lobby which makes it very easy to reach them, as well.
Wishing them all the best as they move to Philadelphia and into their new condo!
New residents will be moving in soon at one of my favorite condos in Philadelphia! I’m excited for them to have found such an amazing new home. Take a quick tour of the building and check out their newly remodeled 2 bedroom/2 bath condo with terrace views of the Fairmount neighborhood and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
