Location, Affordability and Sense of Community Appeal to Young Mill Pond Couple
Jesse Orbach and his fiancée Erin Lyons, both 25, discovered American Properties Realty's Mill Pond at Eatontown, a new luxurious condominium community in Monmouth County, well... by accident. While attending Monmouth University in West Long Branch, NJ, where the two met in class, Orbach, a business major and football player, and Lyons, a communications major, would regularly travel a local road to get home, which frequently led to regular delays at a familiar traffic light. Eager to avoid the light, they diverged from their routine path and found a side street that would evade the light and make for a faster commute. Who would have thought that this new route would guide them to their first home together?

Lowcountry Local First, a South Carolina business association, tried the 10 percent shift as a local stimulus plan. The organization asked all citizens, local businesses, government agencies and nonprofits to spend 10 percent of their annual budgets at local independent businesses.
