Harriman Real Estate LLC Joins Heroes Home Advantage NetworkPat and I are both proud to have a lot of military experience in our backgrounds: I am a Viet Nam era veteran and have a son who also served in the military, while Pat’s first husband was a veteran and her daughter also served and her son is still on active duty. It’s a part of our lives that has had a huge impact on our entire family and we wouldn’t have it any other way. This military connection is why we are excited to announce that we are now affiliated with Heroes Home Advantage.

Splat Art Studio Open House at Harriman Real Estate

by Harriman Real Estate on March 4, 2015

I recently posted about the latest artists to be featured on our Wallingford Inspires art wall, the kids from Splat Art Studio, and it’s getting very close to the time for them to show off their amazing works to the public! Read on for details…

When: Monday, March 9th 2015

Hours: 6:00PM to 7:30PM

Where: Harriman Real Estate LLC office, 116 Center Street, Wallingford

Who’s Invited: Everyone!

Who to contact: Pat Harriman, 203-605-3873

The art being displayed is all from some very special kids, and it’s all very creative, colorful and a treat to see! As you can see from the examples here, it’s hard to believe that some of these weren’t done by more mature artists, but that’s a tribute to the expert tutelage of their teacher, Kate McNamee. We hope you’ll  be able to come out and show your appreciation of that work these kids have produced and enjoy some light refreshments, too!

Harriman Real Estate LLC Turns Five!

by Harriman Real Estate on March 1, 2015

Five years ago today, Pat and I made a big decision to leave the relative comfort and security of a large regional brokerage and start our own shop. I think I was more nervous than Pat and yes, a little skeptical, too. But the upsides of the move far outweighed the downsides, so with a lot of sweat, a few tears, and even a little blood, we pulled the trigger and Harriman Real Estate LLC was born.

Five years later, we’re going better than ever and growing by leaps and bounds. We’d like to thank all of our friends, family and clients for having faith in us, and all the agents who came with us and those who have joined us on our journey, we couldn’t have done it without you.

As thrilling, amazing, successful. stressful and rewarding these last five years have been, it just makes us more excited than ever to see what comes next!

Harriman Real Estate LLC celebrates its 5 year anniversary

Wallingford Inspires Art Wall Welcomes Splat Art Studio

by Harriman Real Estate on February 27, 2015

The seventh artist in our series of local artists is now gracing our “Wallingford Inspires…” art wall, and it’s fun, colorful…and done by kids!

Adults Aren’t the Only Ones Who Are “Artsy”

We are honored to have the kids from Splat! Art Studio displaying their artwork in our office to open 2015. Run by Kate McNamee, the studio bills itself as a place “where everyone is an artist”, the particular artists we are highlighting now are unique: they’re between the ages of 5 and 8 years old! Just look at the quality and depth of these pieces below, and you’d swear that they were done by a more mature artist, but these kids are certainly ready for prime time!

Art from the kids at Splat Art Studio on Harriman Real Estate's art wall

Pat and I are very pleased to have Splat Art Studio’s work on display on our art wall, and we hope you’ll stop into our office to check it out. Stay tuned for another post coming up soon announcing an open house where you can come in and meet these budding artists and view their work up close.

Fire Hydrants Need Attention Too!

by Harriman Real Estate on February 20, 2015

Early morning garage fire in WallingfordWith all the snow we’ve gotten in such a short span of time, it’s been tough trying to keep up with it and keep our driveways and sidewalks clear. But we’ve all done a pretty good job of it, even to the point of neighbors helping out neighbors who may be incapacitated by injury or illness by doing the shoveling and snow blowing for them. However, there are other areas that need to be kept clear of snow as well, and nothing brought that into sharper perspective than a garage fire that happened this morning:

Fire hydrants.

The fire department responded quickly, as always, to the blaze that was already fully involved in the detached structure, but before they could begin to fight it they had to locate the nearest hydrant and dig it out of the snow bank it was buried in. Had the neighborhood residents cleared it after the last storm, it would have saved the fire department several precious minutes that could have been used to extinguish the fire. Luckily, it was a detached garage that was burning and not the main house with the family still in it. If that had been the case, those extra minutes expended digging out the hydrant may have resulted in a higher cost in property damage or injury or even loss of life.

Clear snow away from fire hydrants 3 feet on all sidesThis is subject that has been discussed almost ad nauseum in our Wallingford Facebook community groups (shout out to Jason Zandri for keeping it top of mind), but there are still many hydrants that remain buried in snow and inaccessible to fire crews that need to get to them quickly. There is currently no formal Adopt-A-Hydrant program in Wallingford that I am aware of, but that doesn’t mean they should remain lonely and abandoned after a snow storm. If everyone who lived near a hydrant would take the initiative to clear the snow 3 feet away from “their” hydrant on all sides after clearing their own driveways and walkways, the fire department could use the precious minutes upon arriving at a fire to actually focus on putting it out, instead of digging the hydrant out first. Those minutes saved could be the difference between life and death.
