    It's interesting to see the cortsant in England's performances between the Euros and the World Cups. Since the 60's, it looks like every time that England has qualified for the World Cup, they advance past the group stages. But there are many instances where they have failed to progress in the Euros. I wonder why? Is the competition at the Euros on average tougher? Seems like one plausible explanation.It might also be interesting to see how far England has progressed in each tournament relative to the number of Liverpool players on the team.

    A Follow-up to Best of Boston Schools

    satb After sharing the Best of Boston's best school list for 2013, I felt it was my obligation to also share NPR's recent report on how standardized test scores vs high school grades matter when applying to college. There seems to be some strong evidence that high school grades may matter more than SATs and ACT scores. Click here for NPR's full article..."College Applicants Sweat the SATs - Perhaps They Shouldn't."  What do you think?

    Sellers, The Time is NOW!

    The 'Spring Real Estate Market' also comes in the Winter, Summer and Fall! Every first quarter we meet with clients thinking about selling their homes, thinking they should wait for the Spring. Well folks, the time is now! Interest rates have declined over the past month, buyers are out and the market is in full swing.

    Jay Jenkins of The Motley Fool gives us "eye-popping" stats! Web traffic to real estate websites was up 25% from December to 364 million visits! And like he says, "If you're considering selling and your home is not yet online, then every day you're missing out on thousands (or even millions) of potential buyers viewing your home." He's right!

    Giving Back...

    Every year we put our heads together and decide where to focus our giving efforts. We finished off 2013 with a bang!

    Big thanks to YOU, our community for supporting the needs of others! Because of you, our food pantry received TWO HUGE donations of much needed supplies and Action, Inc. Shelter got a full wagon-load of coats. We also supported the Ipswich Humane Group Tree Jubilee at Marini Farm by collecting over $300 for our gift-card tree donation. Ipswich Caring received enough new books from us to help out about 16 families. Check out the photos!

    Like most, we feel extra generous around the holidays but can't forget the support we give throughout the year. In 2013 we gave over $5,000 to:

    YMCA of the North Shore Campership, Ipswich Firefighters Local, IHS Senior Class Global Glitz, Ipswich Tigers Football, IHS Athletic Hall of Fame, Alzheimer's Association,  Ipswich YMCA Triathlon, Ipswich Education Foundation Harvest Fest, Ipswich Police Association, Jayson Kmiec, American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Ipswich YMCA, Ipswich Youth Lacrosse, Ipswich Education Press Box Fund, NSMC Cancer Center, Muddy Leprechaun and more!

    We are so grateful to belong to a community that cares!
