     PEACHES Best when you buy them Local
How to ripen and store your Peaches
After you purchase, simply leave them stem-side down on your counter for a few days. Do not Refrigerate. Monitor them daily. When they give slightly to a gentle squeeze, they are ready to eat. Once your peaches are ripe, refrigerate them.
-If you want to help your peaches ripen faster, place them in a paper bag which traps the natural ripening gases. and keeps fruit flies off them!    Once ripe refrigerate .

 Craving Lobster Rolls?
Here's Taste Test # 3 WE HAVE A WINNER!
Wondering who has the best Lobster Rolls in Westport ?  ( and what they cost! )
We Gave Westport Sea Farms a 4 out of 5 Stars, 5 oz roll with chips $25.
We gave Bayside Restaurant 4.5 Stars  5 oz. roll served w fries or cole slaw $34.

On July 2, We Taste Tested Village Pizza at 760 Main Rd. Westport
  Most people on my Facebook page said try Village Pizza's Lobster Rolls they have the best.  
 We have a Clear Winner!!!
 We went mid week for lunch time.  Our order took about 15 mins. they were busy but were hustling. Seating is inside or outside. We chose to sit outside on a picnic table on a lovely Garden Patio.

The roll was served on a Grilled Garlic Sub Roll and had almost 8 oz. of Lobster meat!!!!!!!!
The roll was not overpowering it complimented the lobster well.  It was juicy and flavorful.
We both gave it 5 Stars ! It is served with your choice of onion rings or delicious waffle fries with a Boom Boom Sauce another winner,  ALL FOR $24.50 EACH
  If you are craving a Lobster Roll, We highly suggest Village Pizza

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
