Rochester Man Wins $50,000

Rochester man wins $50,000 with Publisher’s Clearing House

Apr 15, 2019

ROCHESTER — John Hall learned two important things when he opened the door on April 15. One: he had just won $50,000 with Publishers Clearing House and two, that it’s best to put on shoes before answering the door, because there just may be a camera crew filming.

“I don’t even have any shoes on!” was one of Hall’s first comments after he realized what was happening.

The Rochester resident is a retired member of the Air Force, who also served as the last elected Treasurer in town for 10 years. He said that there are lot of good people in Rochester’s government. Hall plans to use the money to pay off some debts.

“That will take most of it,” he explained.

Publisher’s Clearing House sells magazine subscriptions and other merchandise to participants that enter its drawings for prizes between $1,000 and $1,000,000. The hugely popular company has around 10 million visitors to its online network monthly and also offers participants the chance to win by promotional mailings, apps, emails, or mail.

Its representatives travel around North America, from Canada to California, delivering prizes to winners each week.

Hall frequently enters the sweepstakes by mail because, as he says “this stuff just costs me a stamp.”

Though Hall was taken by surprise at first, he also had some fun with the camera crew. When asked if he had anything else to say, he simply said, “hi camera!”

The Hall family owns the Camp Snipatuit area along Snipatuit Road. Hall said that he was selected to look after his family’s property, and hopes to eventually start a non-profit around the land, to “have it go on to someone to use.

RASEM RED Expo

The Realtors Association of Southeastern Massachusetts (RASEM) held their annual RASEM RED Expo yesterday at White’s of Westport.  The turnout was great! A great day of learning and friendship.

The day started with a great continental breakfast.  The morning provided a great CEU class with Kate Lanagan MacGregor- CMA List Your Way to Success!  Kate, broker, owner of BOLD Moves Real Estate, led an interesting, funny class on everything to consider when working on a CMA and listing a home for a client.  It included practical advice and great CMA (Comparative Markety Analysis) war stories.

The morning also included a great Property Assessments Valuation & Taxation class with Richard Conti.

Keynote speaker was Cami Baker, author of Mingle to Millions. She had a great talk about networking and your business.

A great hot lunch was served and there were many vendors on hand including Agent Rising Real Estate School, many mortgage companies and tech companies also.

The day finished with the afternoon CEU class of Selling the Sun with Robin Brodsky.  A subject of great importance today especially for realtors and their clients.

Mar 25, 2019

Old Rochester Regional High School has hired one of its assistant coaches, Bryce Guilbeault, as head coach after Justin Kogler accepted a position at West Bridgewater high school.

Kogler left his position at Old Rochester for family reasons, since he has two young children and Bridgewater is closer to home for him.

Guilbeault has been assistant coach at Old Rochester for three years now, and said he is excited to work with the players as head coach next season.

Spring is Here

Spring is finally here! It may not feel like it yet, but better weather is in the future.  March is always a hopeful month with peeks of better weather along with bouts of cold weather, even snow.  We still have time to hunker in a little before the busy spring is here.  Longer daylight hours make us more productive and get us out of the winter doldrums.

The spring real estate market is heating up too. The long lazy winter is over and buyers are coming out to look at houses.  The longer daylight hours makes showings easier along with no snow or ice to navigate.

It’s also a great time to get your home on the market.  Buyers are ready to buy and inventory is still low.  Houses priced to sell are flying off the market.

BOLD Moves Real Estate is here to help you buy or sell a home in your BOLDTown.  We are your community experts.  Our job is to make your real estate transaction run smoothly with less stress and anxiety.

Bishop Stang Spartans are Heading to TD Garden

Bishop Stang has a lot to celebrate! The second-seeded Spartans  clinched  a 72-61 win over No. 4 Burke in the Division 3 South Finals.  Now it’s on to the TD Garden!

The Spartans put a lot of preparation into this game and the focus was definitely there! No one wanted their season to end and it definitely paid off.

The Spartans used strategic game plans offensively and defensively and frustrated and confused the Burke team.

Coach Colbey Santos gave his players a lot to to work on this week and they responded with flying colors.  Everyone was laser focused and played their best.

Junior Guard Joey Silva III, was a key player who drew charges on Burke point guard Devante Jamison causing him to spend the final 11 minutes of the first half sitting the bench.

It was definitely a head game and the strategy worked.   What a game it was to watch! Spectators were on their feet in this nail-biting extravaganza!

Dame Perry also had a great game!

The Spartans now hold the Division 3 South Sectional Championship and can’t wait to move onto the TD Garden and see where they can go from there!

Come on out and cheer on your favorite Spartans!

BOLD Moves Real Estate holds a special place in their heart for Bishop Stang and the Spartans. They are a great part in our BOLD Community.

ORR Lady Bulldogs Advance to Quarter Finals

The Lady Bulldogs came out firing in the Feb. 28 game, leading 13-10 after the first quarter, powered by a strong defense and 6 points from Junior co-captain Mary Butler.

ORR played a different game in the second quarter though, scoring only 5 points and allowing the Wolverines to take a halftime lead of 24-15.

“I told the girls at halftime that we are significantly faster than they are and we have to use our speed to wear them out” coach Bob Hohne said.

The Lady Bulldogs listened. Coming out of the locker room with a new energy and toughness, they finished the third quarter only down by 2 points, at 32-30.

The team played an incredibly physical 4th quarter defensively, wearing down the Westwood offense and grabbing many rebounds. They held Westwood back to scoring only 5 points in the quarter.

The last-quarter scoring was led by two clutch 3-pointers by Freshman Annemarie Perry and a 6 for 7 free throw clinic by Junior Cadence Johnson. These helped the team pour on 20 points and win 50-37.

Next up for the Lady Bulldogs will will be the quarter final game in Falmouth, on Saturday at 6:30 p.m
