People who missed out on buying in Fishtown early ask me where they should be looking. I tell people to not rule out Port Richmond! For starters, it borders Fishtown and Kensington, which is also a hotspot, sits along the left side of Port Richmond. I also like this neighborhood because families have been living there for generations. I feel the same way about East Passyunk. It truly feels like a neighborhood and everyone knows your name, whether you like it or not.
Not to mention, Port Richmond has a healthy amount of commercial real estate on the right hand side of the neighborhood along 95. Port Richmond is one organic food store away from being the next 'It' neighborhood. *Cough* Trader Joes *Cough*. But if you buy after a store like that comes in, you're buying too late. The best prices are now.
Not sure if you quite see it? How many people envisioned Fishtown and Point Breeze 10 years ago? Don't miss out on another neighborhood.

I have 11 years’ experience in residential and commercial properties throughout the Philadelphia area and inner ring suburbs. In my former life, I practiced law in Philadelphia in the areas of Premises and Products Liability, which translated beautifully into having a deep understanding of how houses “work” and Contract Law, not to mention being in the midst of my second personal renovation.
I live with my family in Germantown in a Queen Anne and previously lived in Fishtown until 2011. I'm the President of the West Germantown Neighborhood Association as well as a member of the zoning committee. I am originally a native of Rochester, NY (go Wegmans!) and attended undergrad at Eugene Lang in New York City and Univ ersity of Rochester, where I received a BA in Political Science in 1998. I attended Law School at State University of New York at Buffalo School of Law where I received a Juris Doctor in 2003 and became a member of the PA Bar as well in 2003. I practiced in Philly for 2 1/2 years before making the leap to real estate, my true love.
I am a dog fanatic with a beautiful Husky/Collie (I'd guess?) mix at home…I can most likely find you a rescue dog too if you’d like one for your home! I am a sucker for old homes with original details, back staircases, stained glass but love elements of most periods of design. When I’m not selling houses, I can most often be found hanging out with my two young daughters at all the kid hot spots in town.
