PJ Novak Real Estate?

What happened to our Shelburne Falls Office?  Where is the Coldwell Banker Upton-Massamont REALTORS sign?  Who is that in front of our office?

Today Warner Bros., begins filming the movie "The Judge" in Shelburne Falls and all the store fronts have been changed to accommodate the movie.  The movie stars Robert Duvall, and Robert Downey, Jr.  What FUN!  We will try to keep the "Roberts CAM" rolling.

The extra standing in front of our office is suppose to be a realtor and says "HI" to everyone walking by.  Had a chance to meet the real PJ Novak, he wouldn't let me take his picture, he is a Production Manager on the movie.  What a hoot!  It will be fun up here for a few weeks.

2013 Tax Rate in Franklin County

How Do Tax Rates Effect You?

Towns in Franklin County use real estate taxes to fund schools, fire departments, police departments, recycle centers or trash pick up, recreations departments, snow removal, road repairs and so much more.

As a town determines the yearly budget to provide services to its residents, they see residential homeowners as one  source for revenue.  Revenue for each town is also obtained from the business community and the state.

To the left is a list of Franklin County, Massachusetts towns and the tax rate they are billing their homeowners for 2013.

When searching for your next home, check out town websites to see the services provided to its residents.   These official websites provide contact information, some demographic information, services and information important to the community.  We need to consider what we pay but it is also important to see how each town works to provide services to the community.

Cold Weather Golf to Warm the Children

Coldwell Banker Agents, Gaylor & McGowan and Carol Bolduc were joined by Terry Rae of Buckland for the annual Mid-spring Golf Tournament.  The tournament is organized by the Franklin County MA Sheriff's Department in support of "Warm the Children".  This years event was held at the Greenfield Country Club beginning at 9am.

Tami, Joanne, Carol and Terry enjoyed participating in the event.  WARM was a word of the  day with temperatures only in the middle to high 50's throughout the day and COLD they were.

Thanks Ladies for supporting the local "Warm the Children" Program and to the Sheriff's Department for holding the event.
