Sometimes, well okay, often, I think about how lucky I am to be doing what I do. I feel so much joy when my clients choose me, find the one, get the one, and close on the one! It never gets old. The home buying process is a journey, a discovery, with a few surprises along the way. Sometimes this ...

They seem to greet all passersby with a smile. S...
For expats, the Holidays can be a bittersweet time especially during a global Pandemic. When you are 5,000 miles away - give or take a few - your heart aches for a little taste (literally) of home, and finds delight in the German Christmas Village in Baltimore. My children and I stopped by the Ch...
Eight Baltimore homeowners - plus the Mencken house and Clay Pots - participated in the 36th Union Square Christmas Cookie Tour of Historic Homes last weekend, graciously opening their doors to curious, old house loving people like me. We got a glimpse of yesteryear as we toured these charming ho...
