Join us on Sunday, March 11th at 1:00 PM as Resources rocks the shamrock during the 6th Annual Rumson St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Be on the lookout for the Resources Bus carrying friends, family, agents and clients both big and small! Resources will be rallying in the streets of Rumson with Bailey, the dog, showing their local pride, love for the town and a passion for their Company.
Throughout the years, the parade has provided financial support to over 22 local organizations that believe in the spirit of giving. This fun, festive, family event brings the community together as local businesses shine brightly in support of those in need.
Come out and give! Celebrate your Irish heritage, your community, or just your right to have a great time amongst the thousands that will be in green – joining for this event.
If you have a luxury home to sell, you may want to consider some updates for the newly minted Affluent.
Average age around 37, according to Luxury Portfolio report, they consider Luxury differently than their parents. Although many of them may have inherited their wealth and are accustomed to living “the lifestyle”; they want to use their own brands, they want their own real estate with their own needs met.
Primarily looking for an urban lifestyle or at the very least close to urban areas. They appear to want the “specialty room” whether that be a media room or a large formal dining room. That might come as a surprise to home builders and Realtors alike, as our local luxury homes have had a more open feeling. These younger buyers expect to entertain family members for special occasions and holidays. Traditional values coming back? Of course, privacy and security are run of the mill requirements. Smartphone technology and home amenities go hand in hand for pretty much any savvy home buyer today. Control, locks, lights, music, security systems including security cameras all from a smart phone.
Home gyms and pools are a welcome addition as this generation really understands the need to stay fit and healthy. A pool might be harder to come by with limited urban space – that’s where the suburbs will shine again. Room to grow their families and perhaps be able to take care of elderly parents under the same roof. The suburbs that will remain popular are the ones with easy access to the urban areas. Train and drive time will be a large consideration. For the local area the NYC fast ferry is a large factor.
Don’t expect the luxury buyer to disappear any time soon despite the nay sayers of real estate and the economy. According to the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report Personal wealth in the U.S. grew by $8.5 trillion in 2017.
Carolynn Ozar-Diakon and Thomas McCormack have been accepted into the Forbes Real Estate Council, an invitation-only community for executives in the real estate industry, hand-selected to become part of a curated network of successful peers.
Come out and support your local community! Join us on April 15, 2018 and participate in the Ridge Road Run. This 5K run for Suicide Prevention will benefit the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention and the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County.
Students from Red Bank Regional, Rumson Fair Haven and Red Bank Catholic have placed their school rivalries aside and organized the run to raise awareness in the community. All funds raised from the event will go to programs locally and nationally.
