Rocco's Pick of the Week: Tuftonboro NH Open House on Labour Day

Rocco and his Best Friend Make 58 Eaglemere Road, a Winnipesaukee Waterfront Home in Tuftonboro,

Their Winnipesaukee Pick of the Week!

Visit Labour Day Weekend Open Houses

September 3rd and September 4th 10 AM - 12 PM

at 58 Eaglemere Road, Tuftonboro, NH.

Gunnison's prairie dogs of the U.S. and Mexico are said to have their own sophisticated language including adjectives, nouns, verbs, and all the nuances of lanugage. This is according to Dr. Slobodchikoff's videotaped studies as written in Temple Grandin's book, "Animals in Translation". It is surmised that the prairie dogs' language grew as a survival mechanism from many years of being prey.

Winnipesaukee dogs are considerably more coddled.  My dog, Rocco gets the cutest toys from WinniPaws boutique pet store in Wolfeboro, and need not worry about procuring his next meal, much less being someone's next meal.  The concept of being prey is foreign to him.  The concept of a boat ride to a beautiful property is his pinnacle of excitement.

Boating by by beautiful 58 Eaglemere Road is especially picturesque at sunset and, as pictured below, at Twilight, coincidentally referred to as the hour between wolf and dog.

Rocoo boating by 58 Eagelmere, is inspired by its beauty.

While Rocco is clearly at his most philosophical and erudite self while boating by Winnipesaukee's 58 Eaglemere Road, we can not guarantee that all human beings will have such exceptional intuition and perception. If they are similarly inspired to be their best at this exceptional Winnipesaukee home, Rocco and I will attribute that to great taste! 

Ask Nicole about a luxury home design for 58 Eagelmere Road with a turreted home to match the turret of its distinctive boathouse.

The Core Team of Winnipesaukee Experts from Lakes Region Realty Group is Still Here

How Can Buyers Find a Real Estate Agent in the Deluge of Agents on the Internet?

 

I've had potential buyers, who are new to the Lakes Region tell me that it is hard to know how to pick an agent because "there a zillion real estate agents to chose from."  Unfortunately, any agent can chose to call  him or herself a Winnipesaukee waterfront expert, or a specialist in new construction, luxury homes, or any other sort of home for that matter.  Given this reality of the internet age,  it is difficult to sort through pages of information posted on the internet to find the agent that best suits you.

Are looking for the Winnipesaukee insiders?

Are you looking for real estate agents who have been selling primarily Winnipesaukee homes for a decade or more?

Even at our own firm, since the merger, people looking to find the Lakes Region Realty Group agents with whom they worked, now need to look for us under our new sign at the Berkshire Hathaway Verani Realty Moultonborough Office.
Conveniently, we remain in our 2 Lakes Region locations, including the main office, 60 Whittier Highway (Route 25), Moultonborough, NH Unit #3.  If it is more convenient to make an appointment in Meredith, NH, call to make an appointment at  our 290 Daniel Webster Highway, Meredith office.  For your convenience whether traveling by car or boat, we are directly across from the Meredith Town Docks.

We Can Discuss with you Your Lake Region Real Estate Needs & Match you with a Real Estate Specialist.

 

Our core team of agents, who have been experts and the ultimate insiders for Winnipesaukee waterfront real estate for decades continue to grow as a team.  Our ability to communicate with each other and share valuable information that benefits our clients and customers is invaluable.
Even during our "down time" we are discussing real estate.  We discuss what the ideal property would be for our buyer customers and clients.  Often these "relaxed" conversations lead to insights and pathways that lead our customers to homes that they love.  These conversations help to sell our seller clients' homes.
Without the sort of entrainment*, real estate knowledge, ability to listen to one another, compassion, and hard-earned mutual respect, we would just be a group of individuals who call ourselves real estate agents. We have been selling many properties this year in Alton, Wolfeboro, Gilford, Meredith NH and other towns as well as in the town of Moultonborough.  Finding you the home or Lakes Region property that best suits you is our mission.
Our team can advise you, whether you are looking for camps and lakefront cottages, or luxury homes for sale.  If you seek view properties or residential homes for sale in the Lakes Region its environs, we can help you by matching you with an individual or team well suited to your real estate needs.
If you want to work with an agent who has sold extensively  in a particular community such as Windward Harbor or Suissevale, we are happy to provide you with his or her extensive real estate resumes upon request.

Sale and Merger offers Network for Referrals.

At our firm, since the sale and merger, there are hundreds of agents who are part of our new firm, extending through Andover Massachusetts, Southern New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Lakes Region.
We have the benefit of that new extensive referral network.  but our agents who have been selling primarily Winnipesaukee homes for decades are still here at our Moultonborough NH office.
Our broker/sales manager and former sales manager are also both still here. They have provided a wealth of information to our office for decades.  Their combined knowledge and experience with developing subdivisions and building Winnipesaukee waterfront luxury homes as well as decades of transacting real estate is a resource we are able to connect with throughout the day in our office.  They and our agents have also compiled a library of language  for use in complex transactions. Our network of experts who can help you with surveys, engineering, home inspections, and other due diligence, work well together after years of experience working on Winnipesaukee waterfront transactions.
Call to ask questions about market activity in the niche of the market that interests you.  We're always happy to help.
New branding.  Same Core Team. Look for our sign at 60 Whittier Highway Moultonborough, NH.  Please call Nicole to make an appointment.
You're invited to view our firm's listings.

There are 365 Things to do in the Lakes Region in the Winter and 3 of Them Don't Include Beer.

A Man Ski-Mobiled Onto the Ice and Said.....

After ski-mobiling across a frozen lake, under a pale winter sun, an erudite friend of mine eyed the multitude of portable hockey rinks filled with players and the Pabst Blue Ribbon arch, a beacon in the winter mist.  His grown children had finished with skiing and ski-mobiling and they wandered off toward the many vendors for a drink.

"There are 365 things to do in New Hampshire in the winter..... and 3 of them don't include beer," he remarked.

Winter 2014 saw pond hockey turn Meredith Bay into a festival with  action-filled hockey rinks.  People ski-mobiled, skied or drove around or across the lake to watch. Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer sponsored the event.  The Great Meredith Rotary Fishing Derby and the 82nd Laconia World Championship Sled Dog Derby were other festive events for spectators and competitors. Beer was sometimes present.

Here are a sampling of NH Lakes Region activities in Meredith and it environs in the next few days.

  • Alpine skiing (many weekend races open to all)
  • snow showing
  • cross-country skiing

Ski through April 6th at Gunstock Ski Resort. Call Cannon, Loon, and Waterville for season close dates. (They just keep getting snow!)

(Oh....and...even small family mountain Gunstock Ski Resort has a bar outside the base lodge as of a few weeks ago...so beer is readily available.
