What Is The Main Line?

The Main Line is a group of suburbs in the Philadelphia metro area located west of the city in Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester Counties. These suburbs are called the Main Line because they sprang up along the route of the historic Pennsylvania Railroad, which connected the towns. Residents of Main Line towns live a very high quality of life, as these are some of the wealthiest communities in the country. Many of the sprawling mansions and large homes that historically characterized the Main Line region still exist today, and are a lovely part of the Main Line landscape.

This affluent region of Eastern Pennsylvania offers easy access to the downtown area via road or rail, and is also close to major shopping centers, recreation, and cultural activities. The local school districts spend well above the state average expenditure per student, and at the same time keep the student to teacher ratio well under the state average. The area also features many private schools and prestigious universities including Villanova, Haverford College, and St. Joseph's University.

Client Testimonials

“John was a super real estate agent for my wife and I. We were living in Center City and looking for a house in the suburbs and had very specific requests as far as what types of houses we wanted to look at, in what location and in what price range. John was very attentive, worked with us on what we wanted, suggested houses we may have missed, and ultimately showed us the house that we bought. He never forced a house on us and he was always very attentive in response to our questions. He also helped us get our mortgage started through a brokerage. He's the complete package, he knows his area well and he is well connected. I highly recommend him.”

Matthew Morrow - hired John as a Real Estate Agent in 2011, and hired John more than once

Saving lives, one flush at a time

(NC) Millions of dollars are being invested in an attempt to reinvent the toilet. The dollars come from the Gates Foundation, and the challenge is to develop technology capable of disposing of human waste, hygienically, without lavish consumption of water, costly pipeline systems, and industrial-scale processing plants. Driving this search is the need to save lives. Over 40 per cent of the world's population lives without engineered waste disposal systems, causing a million and a half people to die each year from gastro-intestinal diseases due to primitive, disease-carrying toilets or none at all. In American Standard, in partnership ...

Smart, stylish renovations for any age

(BPT) - Most Americans over 50 want to stay in their home as they age, but few are making the renovations they need to ensure easy and comfortable living for years to come.

The Hartford and MIT Age Labs found that while 96 percent of baby boomers are aware of the changes they could make to their current home to make it more comfortable as they grow older, only 26 percent have made such modifications. Consider some of the following functional, yet beautiful, touches that help make a home safer and more comfortabl ...

Making a difference with socially responsible investing

If you regularly watch the evening news, you likely have seen stories about social activism and massive protests in support of issues like the environment. Not only are they trying to communicate directly with the public, they are also asking some corporations to change. These are noble causes that sometimes involve a level of personal risk. Another way of exacting change is by working with companies from the inside. In other words: investing in them.   According to Rosalie Vendette, senior advisor in socially responsible investment (SRI) with Desjardins Group, SRI is an emerging field that is still defining itself. "It's really ...
