GO ON A PLATINUM DRIVE REALTY PRIVATE LUXURY TOUR OF THE SUBURBS (FREE)

10 Nov

When I received an email from @DivaMoms asking if I wanted to take a tour of Westchester hubby and I jumped at the chance to see what it was like to live in the suburbs. Depending on what part of Westchester you live in it can take anywhere from a half hour to and hour by train and depending on traffic if you drive. The private luxury tour picked us up on 86th and Lexington at 10 a.m. There were two other women that attended and the Platinum Drive Realty tour guides as well. Traffic was good so it didn’t take long to get there. When we arrived it was like we were in another part of the world but it’s so close. The houses were beautiful and you pick how much acres you want. The elementary schools are one story and the middle and high schools look like colleges or mansions. It’s so peaceful and relaxing. The towns seem very laid back, not fast paced and busy like NY. Even Starbucks wasn’t crowded where you couldn’t find a seat. Some towns didn’t have supermarkets so you would have to drive to another town to shop for groceries. I think Costco and BJ’s need to start building up there. The houses we looked at ranged in price anywhere from $500,000 and up, but you can go on their website and find houses in different price range. (www.platinumdr.com) A few celebrities reside in Westchester like Bill and Hillary Clinton, and a few of the Yankees. I could see why.

The tour was lead by the President Zach Harrison and licensed salesperson Marco Vitolo from Platinum Drive Realty. They did an amazing job telling us when is the best time to purchase a house, where to move depending if you need schools for the kids or just a house for couples. They also explained how many acres you could own. I told them if the kitchen in any house isn’t big then I don’t want it. Lol. One house we did go in had the perfect kitchen and appliances I was looking for and it even had a pantry for all of my groceries. I loved the whole house. Inside the enormous master bedroom was a door that lead to the backyard which was huge. It might have had an acre or two of land also a patio, and about three more bedrooms and I think 4 bathrooms. It also had a family room, and an office, the dining room, and living room too. That house was for sale.

You would never think kids lived there because it was so neat and clean. We had to put on footsies before we entered. In my house we take off our shoes before entering as well. Nobody wants dirty floors or shoes from outside in their house.

I picked a few favorite like, Chappaqua, Mamaroneck, Greenwich, Larchmont, Scarsdale, Harrison, and Rye. There might be more but these stood out. We hope one day to own a home that we can call our own. We had a great time on this tour and will be touring again this time in Connecticut.

We parked in a town where we had lunch provided by Platinum Drive Realty and took a restroom break. The tour ended at 3 p.m. And even with a little traffic we made it back on time.
