  • Brief Description of Services Offered: We are the store Joni Mitchell sings of when she says “I went to Staten Island, Sharon, to buy myself a mandolin. . . . “ We offer fine guitars, banjos, ukes and mandolins – the fretted instrument family, with tens of thousands of customers in every state and country. In addition to Joni, we have provided guitars to such luminaries as George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Stephen Stills, Jimmy Buffett, and many dozens of others. Mainly we sell to regular, ordinary players who are seeking extraordinary quality pieces, and the type of service, in helping one to choose such an instrument, one can only dream of finding today. In fact, over the door to our showroom there’s a sign that says “Dream Fulfillment Center” and it’s been there since the late ‘70s. That’s what we do. If you’re a guitarist, this is heaven.

  • Brief Description of Services Offered: Real estate is my passion; I derive a great deal of personal satisfaction from helping others achieve their goals and from educating them in preparation for a successful sale or rental transaction. As I fully understand that these may be life altering decisions made amidst a process that’s often fraught with anxiety, I lend support, offer guidance and provide honest answers every step of the way. My relationships within the brokerage community, as well as with experienced real estate attorneys and mortgage lenders, are excellent and I’ve also maintained close relationships with buyers, sellers, renters and owners long after their sales have closed or their leases have been signed. I pride myself on my professionalism, strong work ethic, positive attitude, attention to detail, and follow-up skills. And, I especially love seeing the happy looks on sellers’ faces as they prepare to embark on a new phase of their lives, and buyers’ and renters’ reactions the first time they view the apartment they’ll soon call home.
