I was sitting in a coffee shop the other day (the Kismet Cafe in Eldersburg, please stop by this local gem when you get the chance), meeting with a new-to-me Real Estate photographer, the lovely and very talented Sarah Lee. All my listings are photographed by a professional. It does not matter ho...
