Allow me to shout it from my virtual rooftop: I am still here for you! For the time being it is no longer business as usual in Silver Spring, MD and beyond, but we are still in business. Our world has been turned upside down, but we adapt, we adjust, and we play the cards we were dealt.  Resident...
I've spent the last 2 weeks acclimating to our new normal, at home and at the office. My kids are on a Corona-schedule, and have adjusted beautifully. They miss school, the interaction with their peeps and peers, but staying connected via various electronic devices and sticking to a schedule is h...
The February 2020 housing stats for Maryland are in, and are looking really strong! There is no denying, we were (and still are at this point) in a seller's market.

But, I can't just yet, my hands are virtually tied.You see, we now have a new(ish) MLS rule (in effect since Nov. 2019) that is ...
I just switched service providers and transferred my cell phone number to a new carrier. It was on my radar for quite some time for 2 reasons: 1. customer service (I don't do rude)2. fees. What is it with all the extra fees (I'm looking at you Verizon!)? I much prefer to have one amount, and to k...
