At the end of last year I was working on a particularly challenging transaction, the kind that will stay with you for the rest of your career.

Today I toured the prettiest 1940s Cape Cods in close-in Silver Spring, MD. Cape Cods are among my favorites... as are most homes built pre-1960.

It gently faded into the mossy grounds right in front of us, where the parking lot morphed into green space. True story!There was no pot of gold sitting...
The state of the Montgomery County Real Estate market summed up: trying to buy a house in the current climate can be exasperating for buyers but VERY lucrative for home sellers. Sellers, the market needs you! We are - almost - out of listings! Just look at the current sales pace: 1,002 homes were...
