Spring 2011 in West Ferry
During the winter months, I was in conversation with owners of a small cottage on Marine Avenue. The time had come to sell.
Although the house is small, its location is wonderful. From the front room, there is a limited view of the water. In the winter, there is also a view of the water to the west.
I had just sold a house on Ocean Avenue about 3 months ago.
The house was listed on Thursday for $379,000. I had an Open House on Sunday afternoon. The house was under contract by Sunday evening.
What did I learn?
I learned that there is amazing enthusiasm for West Ferry…..not just coming from those who want to be there, but from those who have lived there and enjoyed it for many, many years. It was fabulous to have so many neighbors come in, but here is what I also learned. When people love their neighborhood, they want to share. As they came in to see the house, they mentioned a brother, a sister, a friend, a daughter, all who they would love to have move to their neighborhood.
I wondered, “Could this be true of many neighborhoods in Jamestown?” I know it’s true on my street……and I’m a north east dweller. I love sharing my enthusiasm.
So thanks, West Ferry neighbors……you made my Sunday a great experience.
