Local Linda’s Gift Guide for Valentine’s 2021

Yesterday, I was on the prowl for some local Valentine’s Day Gift ideas. I’m sharing my Downtown Andover finds in this post.

I also caught up with North Andover Artist Jackie Tieuli, who I had visited pre-pandemic in her Lawrence studio. Now settled into Lowell’s Western Avenue Studios, Jackie recently entered a creative collaboration with Boston’s Spirit by Rx. Scroll down to see the truly unique result ❤️🍸 of that partnership!

And finally, I’m sharing some 🏠 buying and selling ❤️ for anyone thinking of jumping into a local real estate market that’s on 🔥.

Hope you enjoy!

❤️ Talking about Real Estate

The Local Market is on 🔥. Record-low interest rates. Pent-up buyer demand. Very few houses for sale.  Here’s some 🏠 buying and selling ❤️ for anyone ready to make a move this spring.

Some Seller ❤️ 

For Sellers, I’m offering a Free Home Value Report to update you on your home’s worth (see below). When you decide to list with me, I give you a Free Home Staging Consultation with Property Stylist Lenny Nadja Rein. If your home needs improvements or repairs to maximize your sold price, I’ve got a hassle-free, no-upfront-cost way to help you.

Plus, I give you a Free Home Warranty to cover your home during the listing period. All this is on top of the exceptional property marketing I give to every listing. And there’s no need to let the pandemic stop you from leveraging the increased equity in your home to make your next move. Because I know how to sell your home safely in the pandemic. So contact me at 978.886.4852 to get started!

Some Buyer ❤️ 

It’s not easy being a buyer in today’s market. Homes flying off the market. Bidding wars an almost given. Just this past weekend, one Andover Open House had over 125 people attend.

But have no fears. I’m up for the challenge of helping you find your dream home and will guide you expertly to the closing table. Ready to start? Contact me at 978.886.4852. I’ll connect you to a lender offering buyers a $500 credit at closing. This offer is time-limited, so act fast. Plus, I’ll give you a free one-year home warranty at closing as a way to say thanks for letting me guide you home.
