If you aren't from the Philadelphia area, you may be asking,

"What is 'The Main Line' and Where is it?"

Philadelphia's western suburbs have long been called "The Main Line" after the commuter train line that links the city to its surrounding suburbs. The Main Line has a long and colorful history associated with the growth of the area as a summer retreat for Philadelphia's elite society. In fact, Katherine Hepburn's role as the indomitable Tracey Lord in "The Philadelphia Story" was based on the life Main Line socialite Hope Montgomery Scott.  Today the "Main Line" spans from Wynnewood west to Paoli, including the towns of Gladwyne, Haverford, Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, Rosemont, Villanova, Radnor, Wayne, Strafford, Devon, Berwyn and Paoli.

In recent years, a "Western Main Line" has evolved, including the charming borough of Malvern and the lush farmlands and open spaces of Chester Springs and Willistown. 

What is the Best Town for Me?

Each of the towns and communities that make up the Philadelphia Main Line is unique, appealing to different home buyers. If you're considering buying a home along the Main Line, learning about your lifestyle will be critical for me to help you find the location and home that will best suit your needs.
