I remember your parents first hourse very well.

It was on Spring Avenue, near the park,

I grew up in that house.

Yes, and you were such a cute baby.

I've been pictures of him.

He had blond hair.

I've been friendly with the Stewart family for a long time.

So it's my pleasure to help you find a hourse now.

Well, we're not sure we can afford one.

But we'd like to find out about the possibilities.

That's a good idea.

I love your house on Linden Steet.

I sold ;your father that house seventeen years ago.

Really ?

Yes, Mom was pregnant with Robbie then and they needed the extra room.

I hear you're expecting a baby, Mrs,Stewart.

Mmm-hmm.

So we will be needing more room.

Oh, so you don't need something immediately ?

No, but in five or six months.

And time passes so quickly.

Yes, it does.

Well, when you called.

you gave me enough information about your salaried and your savings.

So i have a good idea about your financial situation.

Let me show you some pictures of houses.

With two bedrooms ?

Yes, i think i can show you some.

Of course , they won't be in Riverdate.

The cost of housing's too high for you here.
I haven't thought about living anywhere else.

We've always lived in this area.

Where should we look for a house , Mrs.Martinell ?

Well, we've an office in Mount Kisco.

it's a lovely area and it's only about an hour's drive from here.

Here.

I have a book with photos of some homes in that area.

Now, let's see. Here.

This is a lovely two-bedroom house in your price range.

It's pretty.

but i prefer a two-story home.

I do, too.

I don't care for a ranch type.

OK.

Oh, this is a wonderful house.

I know it well.

I sold it to the present owners.

It looks wonderful.

This is a two-bedroom, two-bath house.

It has a full basement and it is on a half-acre lot.

You can probably afford this one.

I like this house.

So do i.

And the price is right.

Would you like to go see it ?

Yes, we're planning to talk to someone at the bank next week.

Perhaps we could see the house this weekend if someone buy it before then.

But let's keep looking.

Just to get an idea of some other possibilities.

This is very helpful, Mrs, Martinell.

Here.

This is a wonderful example of Spanish-style architecture.

Oh.

I love the roof titles on a Spanish-style house.

It looks like the houses in Hollywood.

it's interesting.

A house like this in Riverdale costs double the price.

Oh my!

Here's a real buy .

it's a bargain.

This house just came on the market.

It's quite lovely.

Is it a two-bedroom house ?

No, it has three bedrooms and three baths

I know the house.

It has a brand new kitchen.

And a living room with a twelve foot celling

And there's a two-car garage.

Then why don't we go look at this house, too ?

It's a good iinvestment.

Thank you, Mrs, Martinelli.

Thank so much.

My pleasure.

Give my best to your parents.

Your father is a wonderful doctor, Richard.

He took care of my daughter when she was a child.

He's the best pediatrician in Westchester.

Thanks, Mrs. Martinell.

I'll give them your regards.

We really appreciate your advice.

I do think you should go see the houses and talk to the bank.

Here.

Let me give you some information sheets about the houses.

They're both very good buys.

Well, thank you so much for your help and your time.

Mrs, Martinelli.

We've gotr a lot to talk about.

Mmm-hmm, Thanks.
