I showed a home today in Montgomery County, MD and the moment I stepped on to the front stoop, I knew there was going to be a lot of deferred maintenance on the home.  I pointed to all of the wood rot around the door and my clients nodded letting me know that they saw it.  Not only was the home i...

I added a blog post yesterday about putting your best foot forward when you're in a multiple offer situation. This post is an adjunct to that one. I opened my email this morning and the first one that popped up had a subject line of "Price Improvement..." and then listed the property address. I ...

Anyone who has ever worked with me as a buyer knows that I'm all about saving money for my buyer clients.  Having a tough negotiator on your side when you're buying a property works in most markets, but this current market is a bit of a departure from a normal market.I advise my buyers to "put th...

Here's a couple of quick tips on how to prevent mold from appearing in your shower. These photos are from my home and I thought I'd share them with you to show why I'm able to keep the shower mold-free.
