Ambler Real Estate News

It is hard to believe that we only have three months left in 2009!  If the calender didn’t aptly bring this to light, I would have deduced the impending winter due to the seemingly abrupt need for a wool poncho and slippers while writing this.  Anyway… I thought it would be a […]

Who knew “The Man” had a sense of humor?

Ambler’s finest recently added these little gems to many of the borough stop signs.  I think they’re great; I smile every time I see one, and you know what they say… “to be forewarned is to be forearmed.”
