  Don't Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch

The deal's not closed until the check clears. I tell my clients, even if you don't like the other side, even if you despise the other side, don't get too emotional and become petty because we may need the other side's cooperation in a pinch. For example, I say, if your closing documents don't arrive on time and your deposit technically becomes at risk, we don't want the Seller to not grant a one day extension because we did something petty and then they make claim to your deposit. As the saying goes, keep your enemies close (especially with real estate deals).

Market's coming alive.

  Dreams & Opportunities

I'm not saying it's easy pleasing everyone but we do our best at team JPFCO. Nantucketers are the elite in so many ways; best beaches, best restaurants, best sailing, best fishing and the list goes on. Sometimes it is financially difficult to enter into one of the best real estate markets in the world. This is where team JPFCO helps to make it happen. We have found the most wonderful properties for the most wonderful people because we make it happen.

The other day we had the opportunity to make a local family's dream come true, not only owning their first home but a home in an elite real estate market. With some negotiating and creative financing team JPFCO was able to make it happen for an awesome local family. It was privilege to help make this family's dream come true. Swing by The JPFCO office say hello we love meeting new people. Our clients are our friends and are friends are our clients. Cheers


There is nothing better than fireworks, the aroma of Juice bar waffle cones, vibrant blue hydrangeas as you stroll down Main Street, and sandy trails that lead to the water, all of which tell the tale of July on Nantucket.

This year's July 4th was outdone once again with gorgeous beach day weather and a bright, starry evening. And although July might be halfway through, summer has just begun, and we have so much to look forward to! Some particular events of the summer include:
