I was out and about today, and saw some really beautiful sights all around Lancaster County.  Springtime here truly is amazing...the green is popping out everywhere, and blossoms of all colors are dropping their rainbow-like petals on the streets and yards.  Here is a photo of East Orange street in Lancaster City for your viewing pleasure - note the light purple petals covering the sidewalk.  This row of stately homes have an added feature - sidewalk benches for chatting with your neighbor - try finding THAT in the suburbs...For more Lancaster PA Real Estate news click here.

 As part of the Lancaster Revitalization Project of 1997, the Convention Center might as well have been called the CONTENTION Center for all the political wrangling that has been going on - but for all the obstacles that needed to be overcome before starting the $170M project, it's finally under way!                    The facade of the Watt & Shand department store, an 1898 terra cotta and marble Beaux Arts masterpiece on Penn Square designed by the famous architect Emlen Urban, has been preserved and will continue to be an iconic landmark of Lancaster.  The Convention Center, including a Mariott Hotel, is scheduled to open in 2008, and will be a significant addition to other recent revitalization projects in Lancaster, including Clipper Stadium, the Lancaster Quilt Museum, thre Pennsy...

It's going to be a busy weekend in Downtown Lancaster City!  The YWCA for the past 8 years has been organizing their Race Against Racism event.  This will be their 9th race, in order to unite people of all races and ages to demonstrate their commitment to racial equality. With the net proceeds generated, the YWCA funds new and existing programs that are dedicated to eliminating racism.  This includes a school curriculum teaching children the importance of celebrating our differences as well as recognizing our similarities.   There might be some areas of downtown Lancaster City you will want to avoid if you are heading in that direction.  Or, you can park the car and join the race!   Details:                                                                                                 ...

Well, I've tried my first attempt at staging this past week, and so far it has been pretty exciting.  I don't have any formal staging or decorating experience yet, other than doing my own house which I receive many compliments on.  But I've had this vacant house for sale in Manheim Township, Lancaster PA just sitting there on the market -- and it's really a beautiful house -- but it showed absolutely no personality with it's bare rooms and walls.  Luckily for me, my client just happens to be able to obtain furniture at a reasonable cost, so we went to work!  We only did two rooms just to get a feel for what it would look like.  The family room looks great (compared to what it was!) and turned into a fun place to "hang out".  Beforehand, it was white walls and light carpet, and nothing w...
