Piecing Dreams One Home at a Time

This is like the sound off.  I'm originally from a little tiny town (well not even a town) outside North Bay, Ontario in Canada called Nipissing.  I was born the only child of Hector and Barbara Piper.  I couldn't wait to leave home!!  I wanted an education and I wanted to travel and I got both.  I went to University at Wilfrid Laurier in Waterloo, Ontario and upon graduating I went overseas and went to University of Manchester in England and travelled Europe and the Middle East, returned to Waterloo for a while until I was working for Coldwell Banker Peter Benninger Realty in Kitchener, Ontario when love bit me and I moved to the Baltimore area in 1997.  I've been here every since!!

I am an Army Brat so I am really from no where- I was born at Fort Benning GA (or Columbus GA since ironically the Office of Personnel Management did not accept Ft Benning as a place to be born!) - my dad retired from the Army when I was going into middle school and we eventually ended up in DC when he became a professor at Catholic University.  I went to high school here in Dc, went away to college and came back from law school. After that I never left - Now I live in Bethesda - just over the DC line, but I still think of myself as a DC girl and I love the DC market.

Hi Bob- I was born and raised in Houston, TX and lived there until I was 37 when Larry and I moved to Delray Beach for his work. (Homebuilding) We moved back to Houston for a short time, then back to Florida where we bought the home next door to where we used to live, then to Leesburg VA always for work.  During some of that time, we commuted between Orlando and Delray, also because of work.  

We chose Delray Beach for our retirement for the weather and we knew that we would could always get people to visit us in Florida.

When Marilyn and I married, we moved to another small town within the Lincoln-Way Area .. Mokena.  We lived there (2 different homes) and raised our 2 boys there.  When they had graduated and had gone out on their own, we downsized to a new home in Lockport (just miles away) ... which is where we have lived for 13 years now.  I've served Chicagoland/IL homeowners and homebuyers my entire business life ... almost 38 years ...
