Don't Wait Buyers--- If It Feels Right--- It is.

I love helping buyers find their dream home. I don't always love when my buyers don't see the right one, right away. As a Realtor, many times we "know" the house before you do. A great buyer's agent should ask enough questions about your likes and dislikes and get to know how you live in a home so that when "The One" comes along we are ready to jump as quickly as you are!

The worst is when we "know" it and you don't see it until it is under contract.

Of course, I would never tell you you are missing out because that is rude and it isn't my job to talk you into a home. The thing is, this typically becomes the turning point in home buying. This is when you as the buyer realize that sometimes waiting is the worst thing you can do.

Like the time when I know I had to have this Leopard Coat I LOVED but knew husband doesn't care for animal prints so I left it at the store. Then I thought about it all night. I even dreamed about it. The nex…

Sals: Hometown Italian

A couple of clients and I just sat down to make an offer on a property this past week at one of my favorite hometown Italian restaurants in Williamsburg, Sal's by Victor. Now, no one in town calls it Sal's by Victor. It's is just Sal's. Located next to the Food Lion in the Williamsburg Shopping Center, Sal's is in a convenient location to downtown.

Sal's is family run that specialized in Northern and Southern Italian cuisine. Victor bought Sal's in 1990 and decided to keep the name Sal's but added "by Victor." A couple of years ago the place burned down and they had to rebuild. The fire started in the kitchen and in moments the place was engulfed. Because of the fire, you now have a new restaurant with great oil paintings on the walls, large tables to seat 8+, a huge room in the back for larger parties and a warm and friendly atmosphere. 

You can browse the online menu and order takeout. This is very convenient for the nights when the kids have a thousand things to do or when you are visiting and just want to relax after a day at Busch Gardens, Water Country or exploring Colonial Williamsburg. Sal's also delivers within a 5 mile radius! 



So what do I suggest to eat? 

Mozzarella Caprese: The way they make it is amazing!

Soup of the Day: Always great.

Salad: Get the house dressing. You won't be sad you did.

The pizza is great to share. For those budget conscience, this is a great option!

Grilled Chicken Tortellini: Filled to the brim with chicken, sun dried tomatoes and pasta (I leave out the mushrooms). The cream sauce is to die for. 

Manicotti: When I'm not in a meat mood. 

Baked Ziti: I don't make it at home so I order it here. 

The menu is extensive and I have never had anything I didn't like. Let me know what you think of Sal's by Victor.
