By Jon Miller, Realtor®

You can’t walk a block in Center City without coming across a great restaurant. But, there’s also some lesser known spots that are definitely worth trying. Around the college campuses in the city you’ll find a huge variety of food trucks, but in Center City you’ll find smaller food carts along most of the main streets that shouldn’t be missed.

Success Stories: 2601 Parkway Condos in Fairmount

By Jon Miller, Realtor®

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!
