A Message from the Publisher It’s hard to believe another Fall season is here, and the holidays are fast approaching. I know, they say time flies when you are having fun so we should accept it, but I do wish life would slow down sometimes. Looking back, our team has accomplished so much in 2017, with a few months still to go. Aside from helping another 900 or so families with buying or selling a home, they have given back to their communities in many ways.

“Helping homeowners realize their dreams is a blessing, not a job.” — Mike Guimares

In addition to sponsoring some very worthwhile charities such as the Children’s Miracle Network, Habitat for Humanity, Pembroke Titans Against Drugs, the Plymouth Recovery Center, I’m truly impressed with the time they’ve committed through volunteering. Time is the most precious gift we can give, and our agents epitomize that belief through their actions and involvement in youth sports, school events, charity work, and Meals on Wheels, just to name a few. I am so proud of our RE/MAX Spectrum family and their focus on helping others.

While our main focus may be real estate and helping clients to fulfill their home ownership dreams, we are truly focused on trying to make our community a better place to live. We recognize that the strength of our local businesses, schools, safety services, and town services directly impacts the values of our homes and the strength of our local economy. During this holiday season, I hope you can reflect on the past year and be thankful for all that you have accomplished as well. Take time to spend with close friends and family, share stories and laughs, and get ready for yet another year ahead. It’s easy to forget about all the important things when life has you running, but it’s those things that keep you going and help to create memories that last a lifetime. From our family to yours, Happy Holidays!

— Mike Guimares, Publisher of The Spectrum Magazine and Owner of RE/MAX Spectrum

town spotlight

In our busy lives, it’s easy to forget there are sources for food staples other than the large chain

supermarkets conveniently located just down the street. But if you take the time to look around the South Shore, you’ll find a bevy of healthy food and grocery venues. From farmers’ markets to the farms themselves, there are abundant resources for eating healthy, locally grown meats, produce, dairy, and baked goods. Buying local not only supports your local economy, but the food you are getting is harvested at its peak, providing the best nutrition and flavor possible. Here a few such locales on the South Shore.

Plymouth Farmers’ Market 137 Warren Avenue, Plymouth  |  plymouthfarmersmarket.org The Plymouth Farmers’ Market is located on the grounds of Plimoth Plantation. Browse the tables of root crops, greens, fresh eggs, herbs, delectable breads, and pies. Take home foods made with locally sourced ingredients, shop for earth-based arts made by skilled artisans, and gather around the hearth fire for conversation and music. Everyone is welcome! From June through October, the market is open outdoors on Thursdays, and from November through May, the market is moved indoors. The Plymouth Farmers’ Market is dedicated to consumer education and increasing local food access throughout the community. They are proud to contribute to the success of local food growers and producers, strengthen our food economy, and serve as a community gathering place. If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship or partnership opportunities with PFM, please contact them. Also please consider volunteering at the Plymouth Farmers’ Market. Like many of these type markets, they rely on a family of volunteers to help fulfill their mission. Volunteers spend time at the Market Tent on Thursdays, answering questions and helping market customers. 6  THE SPECTRUM MAGAZINE www.SpectrumListings.com FALL 2017

Darlene and Her Earth Angels The more time you spend at the Black Feather Horse Rescue, the more you come to love what’s right in your backyard. The unbridled spirits of the 21 rescued horses are now living their “Heaven on Earth” with a woman who would give her life to save any one of them. Your heart will ache to listen to their stories. Darlene Nickerson, owner of the BFHR, officially opened the gates to the rescue in 2004, which is situated at the end of a long dirt stretch on Russell Mills Road in Plymouth. The property was purchased by Darlene’s grandfather in 1912 and has stayed in the family ever since, actually starting out as a trout hatchery that Darlene keeps up to this day as a source of income.

In 2008, Darlene expanded the horse rescue to accommodate the need for more horses, and other animals, including pigs, llamas, roosters, donkeys, goats, and mini horses! This is the tenth year being a certified non-profit; a majority of the funding for the horse rescue comes from community and business donations, with some of the horses even named after the businesses that donated funds. “I’ve got to be doing what God wants me to,” Darlene says. She’s put in a significant amount of work over the years, as evidenced from her extreme efforts in the community. Not only does she work tirelessly to care for these animals 24/7, but she also bartends as needed for extra money, along with working her hatchery.

16  THE SPECTRUM MAGAZINE www.SpectrumListings.com FALL 2017


According to Darlene, the most common type of abuse she sees is pure neglect, such as not feeding the horses. Saying it “just makes you want to throw up,” she says as she sadly recalls each time.

If you stop by and you can’t find her right away, the dog, cat, or one of the many other members of the welcoming committee will greet you. Darlene says her greatest motivator is getting blessed to live in a place that her father calls God’s country, also saying, “My community inspires me, they believe in me and make me want to work twice as hard.”

She does know that when they get to the rescue, they seem to know they’ve been saved. “You can almost see they’re grateful,” she says. Other times when she gets a call, it may be because the horses can no longer be cared for. Often a person that buys a horse does not realize the large expense that comes along with owning it. Darlene estimates that one horse alone costs $3,500–$5,000 per year to house, depending on its specific needs.

Darlene always seems to say, “I don’t know how we got this lucky!” Well, Darlene, we don’t know how we got this lucky as a community, to have someone like you. Thank you!

Some of Darlene’s greatest challenges include her sick horses—Murphy’s Law, Ariel, and Benny require constant care. Murphy had a condition that prevented him from chewing and could only eat through a feeding tube, which still causes him issues. He’s come a long way, but still requires care. Her female horse Ariel had lost her sight due to head trauma, and recently had one eye removed due to cataracts and glaucoma. Benny, sweet Benny, is a true shining light of love and angel on the rescue. He is losing his eyesight as well, leading him to use his sense of touch. He will place his head in your hands, or drop it lightly to your head. His light honeycolored hair is a perfect ray of sunshine when you enter the barn. He will melt your heart. BFHR does seek out volunteers, usually on Saturday mornings. Most days, Darlene works the rescue on her own with donations or drop-offs coming in throughout the days.

If you would like to donate to Black Feather Horse Rescue, please send a check to them at P.O. Box 3145, Plymouth, MA, 02361. Or donate securely online through Paypal at BlackFeatherHorseRescue.org.

About Black Feather Horse Rescue The mission and passion of this rescue is to find abused and neglected animals, particular horses, in order to give them a loving and healing home, earn their trust, care for their needs and, when possible, find them new loving homes. Some of the horses will live out their lives here at the rescue due to age, illness, or their job here. To continue the circle of love, sharing, and giving, we invite sick and special needs children and their families to Black Feather Horse Rescue so they can enjoy the company of the horses and beautiful woodlands with pine trees, clean air, and streams of trout we raise. We also bring our mini horses on visits to the elderly. It is our hope that, even if just for a short time, sickness and sadness are left behind.

Max is 21 and looking for his forever home! Contact the BFHR if you’re able to adopt him, 508-951-4685. www.SpectrumListings.com

ost people know Erin Williams of Plympton as a commercial loan officer at Rockland Trust. She prides herself on providing financing that works in tandem with clients’ needs. She does it so well, in fact, that it earned her a place on the Cape & Plymouth Business 40 Under 40 winner list. What you may not know about Erin is that she is also the owner and operator of two businesses—Bogside Acres in Plympton, and the Barn on Bensons Pond in Middleboro. Erin grew up on a small family owned dairy farm in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. After completing her undergraduate degree in animal science at Cornell University, Erin moved to Massachusetts. It took a few years to get back to her roots, but here she is. The small livestock farm of Bogside Acres features a herd of Simmental beef cattle, which dot the grazing pastures with an eyepleasing mix of red and black shades. They also raise pigs. The cattle spend the spring, summer, and autumn grazing on rotationally managed pastures in Plympton. They receive a mineral supplement that compliments their pasture-based diets. When pasture is not available, the cattle feed on a blend of locally harvested hay or baleage supplemented with brewer’s grain from a local Plymouth brewery.

Their pigs enjoy meals that are not only nutritionally diverse, but also contribute to an overall local food system, as a majority of their meals comes from leftover vegetables, fruit, and artisan bread scraps sourced from local eateries. Please contact them for availability of beef and pork for purchase. Call 717-202-5841, or visit them on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/BogsideAcres/. The Barn on Bensons Pond consists of 40 acres of cranberry bogs in Middleboro. The bog is owned and operated by the Gilmore family, third-generation cranberry growers and proud member of the Ocean Spray Cooperative. They also have a lovely barn on site, and offer it as event space for weddings and other functions. The original 1940s yellow pine screen house with weathered cedar shingles sits upon a hill overlooking the scenic cranberry bogs. This quaint barn offers quite the amenities, including farm-to-table dinners. They also offer unique seasonal events such as becoming a cranberry bogger for a day and a bogside BBQ. The Barn on Bensons Pond is located at 6 Pine St. Contact them at 717-2025841, or visit them online at Bensonspond.com.

Greyhounds Pets of America, Middleboro  |  Adoption: 508-441-9458

Greyhound Pets of America Has Plenty of Reasons to Adopt a Greyhound

G

reyhound Pets of America-Massachusetts, a rapidly growing non-profit, is dedicated to finding good homes for greyhounds that retire from the racetrack, and spreading the word that greyhounds make great pets. The need to place greyhounds in loving homes is as strong as it’s ever been and Greyhound Pets of America is dedicated to making sure this happens! Bringing home a new dog to become part of your family is one of the most satisfying things you can do to enhance and enrich the lives of your human loved ones. It is exceptionally gratifying to give a dog that has never had a home life the chance to experience the joy of family living. Greyhounds are very affectionate, friendly dogs that thrive on attention and human companionship and make terrific pets once they get used to their new homes. Like any dog, the more love and attention you give the greyhound, the more you will get back. They are generally tolerant of children and would usually walk away rather than growl or snap if children become

overbearing. Keep in mind, however, that these dogs are not as playful as puppies, of course, being mature dogs. Greyhounds are friendly by nature and socialize well as a result of their encounters with other greyhounds in the racing kennel. They can learn to accept cats and small dogs, but the introduction period must be very closely monitored. The greyhound must be taught to differentiate between the cat or small dog and the mechanical lure he has been chasing around the track. Routine is important since greyhounds are used to having a daily routine in the racing kennel. In their new home with you, they will tend to feel more comfortable if a routine is established for feeding, calls of nature, and resting. If you are thinking of adopting, make sure you have the time for this. Overall, they can make great family pets. Please come and find out for yourself, by making an appointment to visit the dogs. Greyhound Pets of America is located at 5 Smith Street in Middleboro. For adoption inquires and appointments, call 508-441-9458. For the kennel, call 508-947-3654.

tips for homeowners The Right Timing Brings the Right Results

W

ith housing inventory at an alltime low and projections less than positive regarding any change in the near future, now might be the time to think about getting your home ready to go on market if you have been thinking of selling. Real estate, like any other commodity, follows the basic economic principal of supply and demand. When inventory is down, prices are up. Sound enticing? Not to go down the path of doom and gloom, but along with low inventory, the Farmers’ Almanac has its own predictions for heavy snowfall this winter. How do those two statements relate to success for you as a seller? Let’s start with the fact that the lowest real estate inventory is during the winter months, as almost every seller who has a choice elects to market their home in the spring—a common error made by many. Go back to the low inventory-higher price theory and adjust your thinking from spring to winter. There are buyers at every time of the year, many needing to move due

These updated kitchen and bath areas from SPECTRUM HOMES are sure to entice buyers. Sometimes all that is needed is a new coat of paint, new hardware, or applicances.

to personal circumstance or relocation and given their fewer choices, your chances of selling at a higher price and in a shorter period of time accelerate. Facilitating that theory is key! It makes sense that addressing some issues now will put you in the best position while bringing the highest return. Here are some tips that hopefully will put your home, your time frame, and your investment ahead of the curve.

n

Contact a Realtor® (we highly recommend RE/MAX Spectrum) to help you evaluate your home in terms of suggested improvements that can be handled economically and in a timely fashion. Remember that most contractors are looking for projects, large and small, during the fall and winter months. Again the supply and demand theory holds true.

n

Once identified, secure a reputable contractor(s) to accomplish the goal of making your home not only “show ready” but free from obvious inspection issues that could arise.

Here are some great home improvement ideas based on what buyers share as to their expectations:

New entryway flooring or mudroom built-ins, like these provided by SPECTRUM HOMES, help clean up an area and define its purpose.

1. Kitchens and baths are obviously the first concern of buyers. No need to gut everything. So much can be done reasonably, working with what is already in place. First, declutter your cabinets and pantry. Take a good close look at your cabinets and consider painting

38  THE SPECTRUM MAGAZINE www.SpectrumListings.com FALL 2017


in a neutral color that would be appealing to most buyers. If the cabinets are beyond repair or need to much prepping, replacing the doors is another option. Replacing the backsplash, old appliances, and flooring will totally change the look! 2. With your Realtor’s help, take a look at your existing interior lighting. You will be surprised at how that changes the ambiance of any room. 3. Fall is a good time for evaluating the exterior as well, and lighting again is an inexpensive way to enhance the vision of your home. Low-voltage lighting is not only easy to install, but energy efficient. Incorporating lighting on your deck or patio highlights those areas of outdoor entertainment as well.

4. Keeping with the exterior theme, look at where wood rot or peeling paint could be an eyesore. You would be surprised how economically this can be accomplished. Fall and early winter months are ideal for that repair work to be done. Decking needs power washing? It’s amazing the transformation when that dirt and green algae is removed. Take a good look at your front door, as it is the first thing that your visitors see. Perhaps a change of color new hardware could make a big difference. 5. Organize! If your home has limited space, consider the addition of a “mudroom” perception by adding a small built-in where the kids and family enter. These units are inexpensive to build, incorporating

a bench, shoe receptacles and shelving. Your closet spaces need attention as well. Simply adding new poles and shelving and some basket storage can guarantee you the look that buyers will love. The point is that during the months of hibernation, small changes can get you on the path to moving forward to a new home with maximum return. And you’re in luck. HELP is on its way by simply asking your RE/MAX Spectrum Realtor® for advice and contacting SPECTRUM HOMES for consult. Consultation services are free and affordable pricing for renovation with quality of assurance is guaranteed. Makes sense whether moving or just enjoying the space that is currently yours.

agent spotlight Chris Neri: You Can’t Replace Experience

T

ruth be known, Chris Neri more than likely needs very little introduction to most residents of Plymouth. You’ve no doubt seen his name on numerous Real Estate listing signs, or encountered him around town. You may also have seen him walking his adorable little pup companion, Honey, on daily morning strolls through the town that they both love. Born and raised in “America’s Hometown,” Chris is no more a stranger to you than he is to Plymouth’s historic setting, including the subtle demographic uniqueness of each street, neighborhood, and residence. There’s no question, he knows his market area!

If your home is currently listed with another broker, this is not intended to solicit that listing.

His knowledge and love for the community has allowed him to achieve success as one of the top brokers in this area. Knowing his market and loving what he sells seems to be the magic formula. After all, no one could argue that selling what you know and believe in makes sense. With 34 years of Real Estate experience as an agent, a broker/ owner of his own firm, and now proudly with RE/MAX Spectrum, it’s no surprise that his client base is extensive and continues to grow through personal referral. While the loyalty of past clients is the ultimate acheivement for a Realtor®, Chris is always on the lookout for new clients too, of course! Here’s another truth: The general public perception of realtors is far from accurate. It seems simple enough—show a house, sell a house and collect a commission; or list a house, wait for a buyer, and receive financial reward. In actuality, successful agents such as Chris have not only a proven process, but a skill set that includes accurate evaluation

of price, marketing expertise, dedication to the process, clear communication allowing explanation of every detail, and above all, astute negotiation skills. No easy job, but 34 years of experience makes it not only accomplishable, but seamless for his appreciative clients. In his words, “You can’t replace experience.” Not to give away trade secrets, but that process also includes listening skills and focus on each transaction rather than attempting to focus on many. Chris says, ”My goal is not to sell the most homes, but to sell each one with CHRIS J. NERI, REALTOR® satisfaction, personal 181 Court Street (Rte. 3A) attention, and passion. Plymouth, MA 02360 When you hire me, you get cjn16@verizon.net my full attention.” (cell) 508-846-3854 (office) 508-746-8402

There’s the important cneri.remax-newengland.com difference when it comes time to choose a Realtor® who will best represent your interests. Chris has been member of the Plymouth County Board of Realtors since 1984 and a member of BNI Plymouth “The Rock” chapter for 22 years (and as its only original member is often a featured speaker on the subject of Real Estate). He enjoys gardening and yard work, golf when time allows, and without question taking care of clients to help them achieve their dream.

Business Spotlights Inspiring the Next Generation

I

n the heat of the summer, on a quiet family farm, Chicken Scratch Press (CSP) Publications was born. The brainchild of Rui Santos, a retired history teacher of 40 years with two masters degrees and a legacy of inspiring children, Chicken Scratch Press entered into the publishing world with the toddler series History for Little Hands. Focusing on the accomplishments of female leaders in U.S. history, History for Little Hands serves to highlight long forgotten and rarely considered women in U.S. history. “Having two daughters of my own, I always told them about positive female role models throughout history,” Rui Santos explained. “But as a high school history teacher, I became aware that female deeds and success stories are not the focus of conventional history classes. Many of my students could not name a female historical figure that did something on her own.” Santos further elaborated that most women are noted in history for being “wed, dead, or wicked,” with positive role models being of less interest to historians. He created CSP, and specifically History for Little Hands, as a way to remember the heroines of U.S. history and reclaim their stories for generations to come. Since young children are greatly influenced by the world around them, Santos decided to create a book series for the littlest of readers, the toddler age.

While historic themes, such as racial equality, freedom for all individuals, care for the sick and infirm, and political and social activism run throughout History for Little Hands, the women of each book are shown as everyday individuals, like you and me. Little tidbits of fun information, like the fact that Clara Barton was born on Christmas Day and Harriet Tubman chose her own name as an adult, help to bring these larger-than-life personages into smaller focus, exciting the imagination of the children. The first two books in the History for Little Hands series, Clara Barton: Angel of the Battlefield and Follow Your Star: Harriet Tubman, are available at Westwinds Bookshop in Duxbury, Windemere in Plymouth, Road to Responsibility, Inc. in Marshfield, the Brewster Book Store in Brewster, and Eight Cousins Bookstore in Falmouth, or directly through CSP Publications at csppublications@gmail.com.

CHILDREN are never too young to learn how these amazing women dared to CHANGE AMERICA! “I bought my granddaughter toddler books on Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee but, when I looked for a book on a female historical figure, I could not find one,” Santos stated. And, as necessity is the mother of invention, he chose to create his own! “Our stories give children, and especially young girls, positive role models. They can learn from these great women and aspire to be like them,” he said. “The power of having a positive role model that looks like you is indescribable. www.SpectrumListings.com

With this image on the page and in your mind’s eye, you can imagine yourself in her shoes and visualize yourself doing the same types of things. It expands the limit of what you thought was possible,” states series author, Michelle Skye, author of History for Little Hands and the Goddess Alive trilogy meditation series through Llewellyn Publications.

The next books in the series are slated to be released within the next few years and will focus on the accomplishments of Amelia Earhart, Sarah Josepha Hale, Mary Edwards Walker, Rosa Parks, Maria Mitchell, and Pilgrim Priscilla Mullens for the 400th celebration of the arrival of the Mayflower in 2020. “I am very excited about the growth of CSP Publications and about encouraging the youngest generation to strive to follow their dreams,” Santos said with a smile.

1. Know before you list—Speak with a reputable mortgage professional to outline your financing plan so you can be ready to move on a purchase quickly. Fully understanding your options. Tto buy without a home sale contingency is a must in this competitive purchase market. With a quick call to your mortgage professional, you will be on the right path.

he real estate market has been active and strong for most home sellers in 2017, however the biggest issue remains: no inventory! This presents a unique challenge given that sellers are fearful to list their home, because in most cases, they need a home to buy as well. So, what is the best course of action to help mitigate this dilemma? Rather than being afraid, we recommend as a

2. If you choose to buy before you sell—Make sure your home is “listing ready.” Get pictures taken before winter, have your paperwork signed, do your title V and get your home organized to sell. Work with an agent that has this forward thinking approach and has worked with others in your situation. 3. Access equity—Review mortgage options like getting an equity line before you list or refinancing to get the money needed to buy before you sell. Even if your home is selling the same day, you will need on average 5% total as a deposit before you close on the property. There are many options out there for buyers and sellers to achieve their dream. The first stop is to get your mortgage options in place and develop a plan so you can make smart, pragmatic moves to put you in the best position to win. #itallstartswithaconversation.
