HAVERFORD The case of two Main Line real estate agents accused of trying to sabotage the sale of their next-door neighbor's property because their own home also was on the market has ended much more quietly than it began. In a two-day bench trial that ended Dec. 6, District Judge Kathleen M. Valentine found Jonathan M. Straub, 41, guilty of harassment and disorderly conduct and fined him $25. Straub's trial took place after the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office withdrew similar charges in November against his wife, Andrea D. Straub, 35. Prosecutors determined there was not enough evidence to prove she was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, Assistant District Attorney Kathleen Colgan said.

ISSUE | PHILADELPHIA DEVELOPMENT Build on gains and improve schools For all the complaining about Philadelphia's 10-year tax abatement, consider that the city and the region saw nearly $7.4 billion in new construction and major renovation between 2013 and 2015 ("Learning the drill," Thursday). That construction added 27,700 jobs and is revitalizing trade schools. This is taxpaying, home-buying, community-developing job creation. The abatement has revitalized entire neighborhoods, with developers risking financial ruin by building bigger homes - for less money and lower taxes - in fringe communities.

A "design flaw" that caused the doors of a Toyota SUV to unlock when the vehicle was placed in park led to the carjacking, kidnapping, and sexual assault of a woman, and to the subsequent hit-and-run murders of a mother and her three children, a lawsuit alleges. The civil suit, filed against the automaker Wednesday in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, claims that on July 25, 2014, the woman - a real estate agent whose name is being withheld because she was the victim of a sexual assault - placed her 2005 Toyota 4Runner in park at Cumberland and Cambria Streets while working in North Philadelphia.

For most people, the 21st birthday is the real beginning of adulthood. But when Jonathan Rosa turned 21 Thursday, it marked his entry into the netherworld of the state prison system: He was given a 45- to 90-year sentence for his role in the 2014 carjacking that ended in a crash that killed a mother and her three children as they sold fruit on a North Philadelphia sidewalk. "I messed up. I have made some very idiotic decisions," Rosa told Common Pleas Court Judge Rose Marie DeFino-Nastasi before she imposed the sentence, negotiated as part of his guilty plea.

Maryland native Virginia Hughes longed to return to the Mid-Atlantic from St. George, Utah, where she was director and assistant professor of medical laboratory science at Dixie State University. When Neumann University in Aston offered her a post as associate professor of biology, her dream became reality. The problem: Her fall teaching schedule didn't permit house-hunting back East.

When Sarah Alderman was a real estate agent a few years ago, clients said they would live anywhere in Chester County - except Coatesville. A couple of years later, she came across a shirt she assumes someone made as a joke that outraged her. The front said "Friends don't let friends live in Coatesville. " "I think the reputation is a bigger issue than any real issue," Alderman said. Nothing can change for Coatesville until perceptions of the city change, she said. As Coatesville continues to work toward a revitalization that has stalled for decades, Alderman, 34, is one of the people trying to improve the city's image for residents and potential businesses and developers.

Recently here in the Real Estate section, I've been looking at issues that listing agents say can make selling a house more difficult. Some are easily corrected, such as removing clutter, washing windows, or sprucing up the front gardens with mulch. Others require time and expense, including rewiring, sanding, and refinishing floors, and replacing a roof or a furnace. Today's buyers want properties in move-in condition and hang on every word of a home inspector's report, even if it's something as weird as - as a Cherry Hill seller told me - "the house has dated wallpaper.

Little things mean a lot, especially to a real estate agent who is trying to sell one listing among many. Two things that may seem little but are really not so trifling when it comes to selling a house: keeping it neat for appointments, and washing the windows. "The marketplace is monopolized by first-time buyers as well as empty-nesters," said Mark Wade, who sells houses in Center City for Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Fox & Roach Realtors. "Both sets of buyers have one thing in common," Wade said.

IF YOU THINK (at all) about Philly state lawmakers, what comes to mind? Take a minute. Take two. Not much positive, right? Well, without getting any hopes up, meet freshman Philly state Sen. Art Haywood. He is, by any measure, apart from the pack, separate from the stream of sameness the city tends to send to Harrisburg. He did not come up through Democratic City Committee. He did not work for a politician. Most ward leaders didn't support him in last year's primary.
