-Nothing says summer like Garden Fresh Tomatoes 
Should You Refrigerate Tomatoes? Here’s the Short Answer from
If Your Tomatoes Have Never Been Refrigerated ( if you grew them yourself or bought them from a farmers market stand in season):
Remove the stems and store unripe tomatoes upside down on a plate or cutting board at room temperature until they fully ripen. 
Consume fully ripened tomatoes immediately.
Refrigerate any unconsumed fully ripe tomatoes, but allow them to come to room temperature before serving them.
If Your Tomatoes Have Been Refrigerated ( if you got them anywhere other than your backyard or the farmers market, in season):
Leave them at room temperature until fully ripe, then store them in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Wondering who has the best Lobster Rolls in Westport ?  ( and what they cost! )  
Bayside Restaurant 1253 Horseneck Rd, Westport, MA was our Taste test # 2 on  6/25/24
We had to try their Award Winning Lobster Rolls Voted by Food & Wine as one of the best in America. Wow thats quite an honor to live up to. Bayside's Lobster Roll was market price, cost was $34. and came with fries or cole slaw. 
We gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 !  It seemed larger and juicier than Westport Sea Farms (which we gave 4 stars and cost $25. and was served with chips.)

What our clients are saying  

Karen was fantastic. She did a great job staging, marketing, and photographing my house. It was so great I got a fantastic offer on my house. Highly recommend her. From Karen - Eddie received $45,000 over asking price for his home. He was thrilled!


~ Eddie Papa

Karen sold my mom's home in Dartmouth for me everything was up front and open she did all the foot work and paper work I had no time to do . She handled all of the details perfectly she called me at every turn to keep me in the loop she helped me make good decisions that needed to be made I was so satisfied with her professional and personal skills I recommended her to friends. Sousa Family Dartmouth Ma * update from Karen- I was able to help Sue sell her home in Dartmouth MA and move closer to her son and grandchildren.


~ Sousa Family

We have bought & sold quite a bit of properties over the last 35 years & have had the fortune of working with some very fine Real Estate agents. We had a property for sale that didn't sell last year and Karen contacted us, telling us she could sell our property. We lived out of state and hadn't done much work on it, other than repairs & maintenance. It was in need of extensive remodeling and the septic system needed to be replaced. Karen focused on the positives in her Marketing of the property and got quite amount of interest in the property. She was relentless & must have showed that property 2 dozen times until she found the perfect match for our property. It was by far the hardest sale of the year for her, but her determination paid off. Like we said in the beginning , we have worked with some very fine Real Estate agents over the years, but none as determined as Karen. If you want your property sold, Karen will sell it for you. We highly recommend her !!!! Gordon & Janice


~ Gordon & Janice

" Karen worked very hard for us, Selling our home in Freetown, then helping us find a new home in Westport, We want to thank her for everything she has done to make the transaction seem easy. We will be recommending her to our family & friends." -The Edwards Family, Westport, MA
