Santa Clause is coming to town! Basking Ridge...He comes to your home by Fire truck and he stops right at your front door!
A moment I will never forget........I used to live in Basking Ridge and at the time I had two small children, the worst thing I did was not research what donations I could give my town or great volunteers that do spectacular things at the holidays in your own town.....
One winter morning ... I heard a fire truck coming down the street so the kids all went outside to watch, well the fire truck stopped at the home next door and Santa got off the fire truck and gave the children each 1 huge present. So my kids both ran down to the truck as well, I said wow that is so amazing they give out presents to all the kids in town, how did they know where we all lived, until I talked to the neighbor and they told me you had to donate $50 to the fire dept and bring a gift to the Fire Dept for Santa to deliver to your home. Santa gave some candy canes to my kids which was awesome but I sure did feel like a fool...I said thank Goddness the kids were too young to really know the difference,they were happy with the candy canes.
The moral of my story is donate to all your town services- SOMETHING even your time!
See what special events the Fire Dept is holding..

"For Gordon Crawford:
Gordon made my experience as a first-time home buyer as stress free as it can be. He came highly recommended, and didn't disappoint. I had dealt with a couple of agents before I met Gordon, and both were a nightmare. Moving from Hoboken, Gordon introduced me and my fiancé to the Morris County area. He spent an exceptional amount of time pointing out the local hot spots, pros/cons of neighborhoods, and overall made me feel comfortable narrowing the search. His approach to finding the right home was refreshing, if not tedious, taking us to various listings to see a single detail we may like so he could narrow the search. He often would say, "I know this isn't the right place for you, but what do you think about the yard/kitchen/bedrooms/etc?". When the listing for the home we eventually bought came up, he immediately knew we'd like it.
Gordon walked us through the inspection, negotiation, and closing process. In the rare case when he wasn't able to answer the phone, Gordon's responsiveness was excellent as well. I love the home I'm in, but if I ever need a change, I hope to have Gordon as my agent in the future."
