A couple months back I wrote a blog about 101 Fun Things to do in New Jersey:


The blog made me realize that there is so much going on in our great state that we don’t know about, but probably should. At the very least it’s good discussion with our clients. Being in the Real Estate Industry, we should know our State better than anyone. So this has inspired me to write a weekly blog about something fun going on, some kind of different event…something happening in New Jersey!
