After a decade as a REALTOR® in the Silver Spring, MD area, I have pretty much heard it all. Interesting are always the responses to my buyers' repair requests following the home inspection, from "Not a problem, the seller will fix it all" to "Are you out of your mind?". Naturally, I prefer the f...
I'm about to settle down with a good movie and enjoy a quiet Friday night. It's been a busy but great week, my little one started Kindergarten, I attended a closing, met 2 new clients and my girls and I just eased back into our school/work/life routine. It's hard to believe summer is almost over ...
Silver Spring, MD Home Buyer FAQs: What's the final walk-through for? How soon can we go?

I always advise my clients to schedule the final walk-throug...
It's day 4 of the Active Rain Attitude of Gratitude challenge and already I find myself paying more attention to it throughout the day.

"Awesome!", "I had so much fun!", "This was the best birthday party ever!" These were the responses I got from my daughter and her friends at the end of her birthday party last week. We celebrated at Sweet Pea Day Spa for Kids in Catonsville, MD. Needless to say I am super happy that I chose this...
Just yesterday I noticed Laura Cerrano a.k.a. Ms. Feng Shui's post ActiveRain Community 5 Day Gratitude Challenge. Coincidentally I was also challenged by a dear friend via Facebook last night. I love a good challenge. This one more than others because it comes with an instant reward: an attitude...
As I was driving back from Ocean City, MD last week, my car made a strange noise. I know a lot about houses but very little about cars ... just enough to know that my car wasn't supposed to make a noise like that. I - very carefully - made it home that night and called "my" mechanic the very next...
While I was out showing homes in Silver Spring, MD yesterday, my phone rang. That, of course, is nothing spectacular to blog about. That's what phones do, ring, peep ... vibrate. As soon as I can, I return all calls and respond to messages unless the caller has his/her number blocked. And that's ...
