Real Estate Broker Owner - J. Philip Faranda (J. Philip R.E. LLC) Westchester County NY
J. Philip Faranda is based in Briarcliff Manor, NY. His market covers Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, & Dutchess counties. Almost 100 clients and customers had closed transactions in 2008-2009 from his efforts. Ever the high-producing listing agent, he counts among his specialities hard to sell properties & short sales.
I am happy to share that 2013 was perhaps the best year in the company's history. Not only did we crush our 2012 numbers, but J. Philip Real Estate exceeded some lofty goals I had set a year ago.  2013 was the first year that the firm closed over 100 transactions. That was my most ambitious pipe...

Vines are simply 6 second videos, but you'd be suprised at how well done many are.  I have a strong belief th...

Nestled on a quiet street corner of the Campwoods neighborhood in Ossining is an old school, kid friendly cafe with an old fashioned counter, and wallet friendly prices. I just spent of of the nicer afternoons with Catherine, and the highlight was our time at the Wobble Cafe. Catherine had a stra...

There are quite a few search engine terms that members of the Active Rain community covet. For myself, "Homes for sale in Westchester County" would be among those considered a Holy Grail for a page 1 Google ranking. As I found out today, while my Holy Grail is still elusive, another term seems to...

The best page on Facebook in my opinion is Alexander Yamet's Westchester is Not Upstate You Idiot. This is one of those friendly arguments people in Westchester and the Hudson Valley get into with people when we get to college and meet Long Island and New York City types for the first time in the...
