We are in the process of buying our first home and we went to Sovereign bank for getting the pre qualification for out mortgage.
The bank has low rates and probably the lowest closing costs.The mortgage officer was very knowledgeble and adviced us a lot as we are first time home owners.
They do have a special program for low income first time home owners which I think is a great thing for the community as more people get the oportunity to own a home and improve their quality of life.
I recommend them to everyone.
I have used Heck brothers to send flowers from work.They are very prompt in their service & the flowers were always delivered exactly as instructed.
They take phone orders & also online orders.They are very conveniently located on Penn Ave & the flowers can even be picked up on your way.
The prices are competitive and they use very fresh flowers.They offer flowers according to occasion too and that makes it very convenient for someone like me who is ordering from work and does not have a lot of time.
I recommend them for all occasions.
We are in the process of finding our first home and are going through Ron Samsel of Century 21.He is very entusiastic & proactive.We have worked with him for about a month now & he completely understands what we need.He lets us knoe right away if a home comes available for sale & answers our queries on phone or email immediately.
He is patient with all our questions,as we do have tons of questions being first time home owners.
He is not pushy like many other realtors we met.
I hope he can find us our dream home soon.
I absolutely love visiting the place.The flowers and plants are just so beautiful.It is a great place to take kids.There are seasonal activities for children and they really enjoy themselves.I have always shopped there for flowers for all occasions & also for indoor & outdoor plants.
The staff is pleasant & helpful & I appreciate the advice they give on the care of plants.
I highly recommed them.
We always use National Cleaners sice they are real close to our home.They are very conveniently located.
The place has a pleasant staff & are efficient.Our clothes are always ready on time & we had had no complaints at all.They are always well laundered or dry cleaned.We will always use them as our cleaners.
Bell tower is an upscale salon with well trained stylists.
The hair dressers are very creative and I've never come out looking the same twice. The advice they give is good & what I really appreciate is that they don't force me to buy stuff from their store & give me other alternatives.
The salon is full service & offers fabulous facials,manicures,pedicures & massages!It is definitely worth a visit especially their packages for special occasions-Valentine's day etc are worth taking a look at.
Just love it!!
The salon is conveniently located in the Berkshire Mall.I like the fact that they don't get awfully busy & it is easy to get an apponitment there.
It is not very over priced,so is affordable.
I have never been there for a haircut,but my husband is a regular customer there.
He is very satisfied with the stylist.She is very patient & does a great job.
I recently took my 6 month old baby there for her first haircut.
They were very good to her.We even got a certificate for the first haircut as a keepsake.
With the constant effort to make Reading a better place to live,the city brings in a lot of new happening shows here.The Sovereign performing Arts center is the most popular venue for these.
They show Broadway shows & also other performers.
I have been here for Cabaret,David Copperfield etc.
The theater is beautiful & comes alive when there are these wonderful shows.It reflects how culturally active Reading would have been earlier.
Get there early for parking close to the theater,though there are garages close by.
We absolutely love the Mifflin library.
I even volunteered there for a while.
They have a great selection of books & movies.It is a neat & clean place & the librarians are more than willing to help you look for books etc.
The annual book drive & other events are a great success.
They run classes on computer literacy from time to time which is very popular.
Also,the story time & other classes for children are very popular.
I love to spend time there & am look forward to taking my 8 month old to story time next summer!
This is the newest salon in the Berkshire Mall that offers hair & nail treatments.
It is a neat & clean place & the nail technicians are talented.
Also,a good place to get a pedicure & a manicure.
The place is definitely convenient as you can go in & get an appointment right while you shop & even go back into the Mall while waiting for the appointment.
The hairdressers will have to prove themselves,though before they get regular clients.
