COVER STORY Charms Abound In This Scranton Cape Cod

-Story by Leo Czajkowski

When you arrive at the home, parking is handled by a concrete driveway located behind the home that can easily hold several vehicles. From there, you can enter the home through the rear, side or main front entranceway. Entering from the front, you arrive in a 5’3”x3’8” foyer that precedes the entrance to the living room.

The living room measures an impressive 15x13’6” and highlights an oak floor and a large window that overlooks the front lawn. An oak staircase with a wrought iron railing will lead you up to the second level bedrooms and bath while the kitchen is just off. The kitchen offers 16’4”x11’6” feet of living space and is finished with an abundance of hardwood cabinets

that are accented by spacious ceramic tiled countertops.Amatching ceramic tiled floor is underfoot and a backsplash features painted inserts. A double stainless steel sink is under a window that looks to the backyard and there are also several pullouts and some cabinets feature glass doors. A stove fan, range, garbage disposal, dishwasher and refrigerator are included.

Real Estate Briefs –– Prepared by The Times Leader Advertising Department

True Community Leader Honored For Leadership & Integrity Realty Network Group’s President and Managing Broker, Alice Vanston, was recently honored by the Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS® (GSBR) with its Lifetime Achievement Award for years of outstanding service to the Board, the local real estate industry and the Northeastern Pennsylvania community. On May 24, 2012, Vanston was presented this prestigious award at the Board’s Annual Awards Evening Reception, which took place at Fiorelli’s Plaza in Peckville, PA. This special award is presented to a member of the Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS® whose accomplishments, professional experience and wisdom have made a significant impact on the field of real estate within the region. Alice’s longstanding commitment to her clients and colleagues over the years was another reason she was the favorite to receive the GSBR’s inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award. Her character and pioneering spirit over the past three decades have certainly earned her the admiration of her peers. Alice continues to impact others. As she will tell you, “Nothing makes me happier than to know my clients are completely satisfied with their real estate purchase.” It is in her conviction you realize the secret of this industry is to connect buyers and sellers in a seamless fashion. The real estate transaction, one of the largest many people will ever make, is also an investment in happiness.

Furthermore, she motivates her team at Realty Network Group and encourages those around her to excel. “Under Alice’s leadership, we have continued to leverage traditional marketing tactics while growing technologically including the relaunch of RealtyNetwork. net, use of mobile applications, QR codes and social media networking,” explains Mark DeStefano, CEO. “She has a nononsense approach to real estate. Her high ethical standards and astute business sense support our rebranding, significant year-overyear growth in addition to agent retention.” Alice is an active participant in the GSBR. Over the years, she has served on numerous state and local real estate committees, and was elected President of the Board of REALTORS® in 1994. This lifelong resident of Jessup is a community leader as well: She assists with the financial support of such organizations/causes as Lourdesmont, Jessup 21st Century Association and Ronald McDonald House’s Gourmet Gala, just to name a few. About Realty Network Group Comprised of twenty-three of the most experienced REALTORS® in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Realty Network Group, recently reestablished itself as the go-to, premier real estate brand in the region. Formerly known as Semian Real Estate Group, they resolve to assist the community and local economy throughout the year and beyond. They are located throughout the region with three great locations in the Abingtons, North Pocono and Scranton. Their full range of real estate services include residential sales/leases, commercial sales/leases and appraisal services. The company utilizes the latest trends in real estate marketing, both high touch and high tech: Mobile-ready sites, Realty Network TV, QR codes, to name a few. Realty Network Group fully supports the principles of the Fair Housing Act and the Equal Opportunity Act.
