Following in that tradition, she and her husband Frank returned two years ago to the Midland Park location of Jeff’s Starflower Florist at 14 Central Ave. in the Wortendyke section. All around the new store are the Laurettas’ trademark silk arrangements, swags, garlands and wreaths, all customdesigned to order and competitively priced. Fran Lauretta, right, and daughter Leena. Equally impressive are their fresh flower arrangements, wedding and special occasion flowers and funeral pieces. The shop is part of a national florist network. The “more” in the store is the mezzanine-level antiques and home furnishings area that features a wide range of elegant tables, sideboards, and accessories. Displayed prominently on the walls are Frank’s original oil paintings depicting Tuscan and Mediterranean landscapes and seascapes. Creations by Fran marks a return to Midland Park for the Laurettas after a 10-year absence following the sale of Lauretta’s Dry Cleaners, which they owned for 25 years. “We are very happy to be back in Midland Park,” says Fran. “We grew up here in the business community and our ties are strong.” Frank’s brother Sal owns the men’s haberdashery, Sal Lauretta for Men, which is located around the corner.

F Betty Sullivan is there for you ince I have been a “Woman in Business” for so many years, my dear friends of Midland Park and other close-by towns are familiar with my love and passion for real estate. I’ve always enjoyed putting their families under my wings and settling them in either an exciting new home or assisting them in the sale of an old one. My comfort zone has always been firmly within our local streets, where I thoroughly know and understand the dynamics of buying and selling. With that said, I am now appealing to all the many couples with whom I have shared many life experiences. I want you to put on your thinking caps regarding your “Empty Nest” syndrome and reflect on where you actually are right now and where you think you should be going in the nearby future. After establishing a balance sheet of pros and cons, you will undoubtedly come up with as many valid reasons for remaining home owners as for selling and starting out in a totally new living environment. Practically speaking, we all have to consider these two possibilities eventually. I’ve known so many of you personally throughout the years through our mutual involvement in civic or sports Betty Sullivan organizations, school functions and town government. Because of this friendship we have shared, I want you to feel comfortable in allowing me to help you wade through the decision of home selling. In the past, I have listed or sold homes on almost every street in the area. This experience continues to provide me with a sound professional knowledge of our real estate values. My support system is my extraordinary company, Terrie O’Connor Realtors, a front runner in advertising, state-of-the-art technology and expert in making this enormous change in your lives a pleasurable one. Please call me at 201-788-5355 or e-mail me at I am always able to respond to your simplest questions or answer some of your heaviest quandaries. I am so eager to help you.
