The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation’s (CBCF) 11th annual “Pink is the New Green®” Golf Classic once again exceeded it expectations with an impressive $650,000 in funds raised to support breast cancer research efforts under the direction of Dr. Larry Norton, Senior Vice President, Office of the President and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Held yearly in June at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, N.J., the golf outing is continually one of the most successful fundraising efforts of CBCF.  116 golfers participated in the 2018 Classic, which also featured an exciting $18,000 Chip Off and raffle drawing for a brand new Ford Mustang convertible.

The festivities concluded with a reception dinner where two hundred guests were addressed by Dr. Larry Norton, the foundation’s scientific advisor, and breast cancer expert Dr. Elizabeth Comen (also from MSKCC).  Dr. Philip Paty, a surgical oncologist at MSKCC with special training in cancers of the colon, also spoke to attendees.

“This year’s golf classic was one of the most prosperous on record thanks to the large number of participants, and the tremendous generosity of our donors, dedicated business partners, volunteers and community leaders,” said Andrew B. Abramson, Treasurer and Co-Founder of CBCF, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. “The outing is unquestionably our keystone event and the perfect springboard to our fundraising efforts during the October Breast Cancer Awareness month.” Continue reading


East Gate Exterior

A feverish sales pace has left less than ten homes available in the initial housing phase at East Gate, the unique collection of townhomes, duplexes and single-family residences being created in century-old Officer’s Housing buildings on Monmouth County’s historic Fort Monmouth.

Since its much anticipated debut, the highly popular Jersey Shore neighborhood has enjoyed immediate success with buyers embracing the chance to live in a one-of-a-kind luxury home and a storied and notable residential location.  The strong activity recorded from the onset of the sales program has positioned East Gate to fast become an active and lively community when initial closings begin next month.

“We’ve experienced record-breaking sales velocity since the date we opened the doors to East Gate, and with several significant milestones on the immediate horizon, we expect interest to rise even further during the traditional strong fall selling season,” says Michael Hong, Assistant Vice President of Development at RPM Development Group, the community’s developer.

“Most noteworthy is the impending arrival of our first residents, which will begin the transition of East Gate into an established community and put its energetic lifestyle on display.  We’re confident once visitors see East Gate in full swing, they’ll be spurred to act quickly.”

East Gate is the first residential component brought to market in the repositioning of the 1,126-acre former Fort Monmouth U.S. Army post.    The community has been quick to differentiate itself thanks to eye-catching architecture and distinctive homes that offer an attractive alternative to the area’s conventional housing stock.  To create a nostalgic, yet modern living experience at the community, RPM Development has masterfully blended the original building exteriors which date back to the early 20th century with contemporary interiors boasting expansive living spaces and designer finishes and appointments.

Montgomery FunFest


Sunday, September 9th at the Princeton Airport

SAVE THE DATE! This year’s Montgomery FunFest at the Princeton Airport will take place on Sunday, September 9th, 2018. Montgomery FunFest is RAIN OR SHINE! It will be a beautiful day!

THANK YOU all who attended the second annual Montgomery FunFest on September 10th, 2017!

More than 10,000 Montgomery and surrounding town residents gathered for a day of family, food, fun, and live entertainment. We were glad to see the members of our local businesses, restaurants, community organizations, Montgomery school district clubs and sports organizations who participated and were vital to the event’s success. We believe Montgomery FunFest will continue to be a dynamic event for the entire community!



via MyDomaine.com – The modern farmhouse décor style has seen a resurgence in recent years. Visions of loungey and lofty spaces with pitched roofs, reclaimed beams, deep cozy sofas, and small antique pieces are enough to make each of us want to buy a cabin in the woods and retreat from city life forever.


East Gate is setting new heights of success as an impressive 20 of its 68 homes have been sold since the unique collection of townhomes, duplexes and single-family residences made its debut in Monmouth County’s historic Fort Monmouth.

It is unquestionably one of most notable residential sales openings in this region in recent memory, according to RPM Development Group, which has introduced the luxury offering in century-old Officer’s Housing buildings on the 1,126-acre former U.S. Army post.

East Gate has been quick to differentiate itself thanks to eye-catching architecture and distinctive homes that offer an attractive alternative to the area’s conventional housing stock.  To create a nostalgic, yet modern living experience at the community, RPM Development has masterfully blended the original building exteriors which date back to the early 20th century with contemporary interiors boasting expansive living spaces and designer finishes and appointments.

“An exceptionally high level of buyer interest has converted into many sales in a short period of time, validating our long held belief that Ft. Monmouth would fast become one of Monmouth County’s preferred new residential address,” says Michael Hong, Assistant Vice President of Development at RPM.

“The combination of luxury, one-of-a-kind homes, neighborhood soon to be ripe with a wealth of lifestyle amenities, and a storied Jersey Shore location has clearly resonated with a wide range of buyer types — from millennial first-time buyers and those moving up to larger homes to empty-nesters interested in scaling down from no-longer-needed single-family residences.”

East Gate is the first residential component to be introduced in the Ft. Monmouth redevelopment. Residences are priced from the high-$400,000s to the mid-$700,000s, with initial occupancy scheduled for early fall. Continue reading


Evan's Mill Kitchen 1

A strategic decision to introduce oversized apartments to a rental market clamoring for larger, upscale rental homes has paid quick dividends for developer Sterling Properties at Evan’s Mill in Cherry Hill, N.J.

The boutique community has enjoyed immediate success with more than 50% of its 152 apartments leased since a mid-June Grand Opening.  The overwhelming successful launch of Evan’s Mill has resulted in its available inventory of townhome-style apartments having nearly been exhausted, prompting the developer to ready itself for the release of 80 condo-style apartments that feature elevator access, private garage parking and available storage.

The amenities are second to none and the location is ideal from both the commuter and lifestyle perspectives.  It’s a complete package that’s proven hard to resist.”

The residences feature contemporary designer finishes including European-style wood cabinetry, extraordinarily large kitchen islands, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances.  In addition to the elegantly-designed apartments, residents of Evan’s Mill will enjoy a full suite of recreational and social amenities including a state-of-the-art clubhouse with a sparkling outdoor pool, pool bar and fire pit area, fully-equipped fitness center, yoga room, dog park and bocce court.  The community will offer a bike share program, and is connected by biking and walking trails to the Croft Farm Arts Center and the Cooper River park system at Challenge Grove Park.

via A Beautiful Mess – We’re still hard at work on our studio house—one mini space at a time. This week we completed two small spaces (double yay!), and today we’re teaming up with Martha Stewart Living at The Home Depot to share a few tips for styling an entry space.

But first, I must confess. I’m the worst at mini spaces. You know the ones. Too small to be a room, but still in need of decor and organization. I put them off and eventually get used to their half-finished status. They’re my blind spot.

But not this time! This time things are different. And you know what? I’m loving it. Our new entry space is inviting and organized. Since it’s the first thing we see when we walk through those doors every morning, I think of this space as our friendliest spot in the house, always waving “hell-oo-ooo!”
