Welcome to the neighorbood, THE BOULEVARD!

Welcome to the new hot spot restaurant and watering hole on Francis Lewis Blvd this month, the BOULEVARD opened its doors recently and did not disappoint. Big by Northeast Queens standards, the place has an at home feel nonetheless and the place is beautifully appointed for casual fare and a great place to meet friends. The food was great too, I had amazing meatballs as an appetizer, and broccoli rabe in keeping with my new smaller, healthier eating habits. Everything was fresh and the staff were attentive and engaging. That’s what’s best and new in the neighborhood.


What’s worst? When you order lunch from a great local place, over the telephone, and they don’t start making it until 25 minutes later when you come in to pick up. When you ask why, they say they never start until you come in.. then why did we call? Just let us know, please, or take a credit card over the phone to confirm the order if you are worried about getting paid. We take short lunches; we have houses to sell and people to help!

The food was delicious anyway, we just need it faster.


Best AND Worst About The Market This Time Of Year

This week, JUDGED BY JUDY focuses on what’s best and worst when it comes to open house experiences.



If you visit an open house next weekend, you may be one of over 50 buyers attending, and if you are not serious about buying, you will be in the minority. This weekend I held 3 open houses for my “first weekend on the market” sellers, and all of them now have serious offers on them. Each of these properties has been on the market for less than a week, and while they are not yet sold, the market is screaming, “YOU HAVE A GREAT HOUSE, YOU WILL SELL SOON AND THE MARKET IS YOURS!”



One open house, that a colleague of mine visited, had so many people trying to get into it that there was a line around the block (think the Sunday morning line at your favorite bagel store), and people were so pent up that they were actually fighting to get in. The agent was alone at the house and things got a little out of control.
