    5 Reasons You Need a Buyer's Advocate

    Everyone needs an advocate; someone on your side willing to fight for and believe in you. Whether it is on your job, in the classroom, or in the home… even the strongest, largest wings need wind beneath them in order to fly. So when it comes to buying a home, no matter how big, how small, how old or how new, you need a buyer’s advocate. Yes, even when you purchase from a builder, it literally “pays” to have a second set of eyes and ears. 
    Still need some convincing? Here’s a short list of the top 5 reasons you need an advocate from The Don Williams Group, especially when buying from a developer.

    1. First of all a buyer’s advocate is 100% free. Who doesn’t want a little additional help and assistance when it comes with no strings attached?

    2. Since the Don Williams Group agents represent you and not the builder, they keep your best interests in mind and can find additional, hidden incentives.

    Give Thanks: 4 Reasons to be Thankful You're a Delaware Resident

    Thanksgiving is upon us! And while we are already looking forward to the winter holidays, it is important to avoid overlooking this special day in November. In the midst of life’s chaos, hustle, and bustle, it is extremely beneficial and healthy for the soul, to stop. To stop, smile, and admit that there is happiness, contentment and fulfillment in what we already have. To pause one moment and slip out of the rat race long enough to be thankful for life’s blessings – the ones we most take for granted: life, health, family, and the little things.
     
    In addition to your list of things to be grateful for, we’ve got a few reminders of why “Being a Delaware Resident” should be one of them!
     
    #1 - Delaware is extremely “Tax Friendly.”
     
    There is no state sales tax in Delaware. (Can all the shopaholics wave their hands?) As a matter of fact, Sussex County actually tied for 2nd place among all US counties in being one of ...

    Grandpa Mac

    They say you should never assume, but when the name is "Grandpa Mac," it's a pretty safe bet to guess that they serve pretty much all things pasta. It's the mac-and-cheese connoisseur's paradise and it's all brand new in two locations at Rehoboth Beach! Just a few weeks ago, my husband and I mustered up the courage to try this new venue next to the Tanger Outlets right off Coastal Highway. It is always a risk to try a restaurant solely devoted to a traditional dish like mac-and-cheese. The bar is automatically set very high and you walk in with all sorts of expectations. I told myself not to expect much, but boy was I blown away!


    Above: Grandpa Mac booths featuring original artwork by the owners - Coastal Hwy. location.

    First of all, the branding for this restaurant is on point. Gigantic artwork graced the walls and I was blown-away to find out that it was all original and hand painted by the owner. Even the chairs had the "Grandpa-Mac" logo etched into the wooden back ...
