 Every year my office, RE/MAX Realty Group in Gaithersburg, Maryland supports our community in some way.  In past years we have helped the Salvation Army Angel Tree Kids to help make the holidays better for others.  I was always amazed at the support and generosity that the agents in my office showed for those in need. This year we did a Food Drive for the Maryland Food Bank.  Kara Hurley, who is part of our office staff.  Kara organizes all of our community drives, social and educational activities.  Kara is a driving force to our success with the food drive.  Besides that, she is the cutest thing you could ever know.  Each agent was asked to send out postcards to folks in our SOI and other networks we were involved with in order to meet our goal of 500 lbs of food for the Maryland Foo...

Is buying a home ever simple? The answer is probably not--because of all of the thought that goes into finding the right home and the stress of making the right decisions. Not to metion, the hiccups you can experience along the way. The process, however, is usually the same for everyone and can be broken down in to its base parts. I devised this brief flow chart to simplify what seems like a daunting and complicated task. Over the past 20 years, I have helped buyers follow the same path to home buying success hundreds of times. The chart does not address all of the intricacies and sub processes that can go into the purchase, but the majors are covered. If you follow these steps, you will find yourself owning a home. It's important to put major emphasis on the pre-approval and inspection...

I am so excited, the Sugarloaf Craft Fair is this weekend!!  It is one of my favorite pre holiday activities.  There is so many great things to see there at the fair!! If you have never been to the Sugarloaf Craft Fair this is your weekend to go.  There are artists and crafts people from all over the country here in Gaithersburg at the Fairgrounds to sell.  I love getting the hot cider and shopping for treasures to start off the Holiday season.  They make perfect holiday gifts for family and friends, maybe a gift or two for yourself.  The show will be this weekend November 21, 22, and 23.

These days we all want instant everything.  From our Internet connections, to our cell phones connecting right away and answers to our questions should have been five minutes ago.  We are in tune and on the move.  But what about an emergency?  Bad weather?  Storms coming, you know we have had a few tornadoes in this area in the last few years.  They are so rare, but if one was coming wouldn't you want to know?  How about a tree down blocking a road after a storm.  What about a water main break that stops traffic.  These are inconveniences, but wouldn't you like to know before hand?  Sure you would.  Remember how scary 9/11 was here in Maryland?  Being right next to the Nation's Capital, what a scary and traumatic day it was for all of us.  Now we were not set up back on 9/11, but rest a...

This is the season for family and friends.  Please don't forget about the folks who are less fortunate in our community.  This has been a difficult time for many.  We need to pull together as a community to make sure no one is forgotten. In an effort to help, RE/MAX Realty Group in Gaithersburg, Maryland has started a food drive to support the Maryland Food bank.  During the month of November you can drop your nonperishable food items off to the RE/MAX Realty Group office or at the designated Open Houses held by RE/MAX Realty Group Agents.  If you have any questions please contact Me, Audrey June-Forshey or the RE/MAX Realty Group Office if you would like to drop off or have donations picked up.

Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween.  The local weather in Gaithersburg  is supposed to be good for trick or treaters.    I hope to see all the kids, big and small out celebrating.  I will be taking pictures at my home in Darnestown.  Most of the kids head up to the Kentlands to trick or treat.     I think some kids think it is too much work to come to Darnestown where all the houses are on 2 acre lots or more.  The Kentlands have smaller lots and they get a bigger bang for the buck.   If you have photos that you would like to share, please email them to me and I will post them on my blog to share with everyone. Stay safe, have fun, see you tomorrow.  I will have my cameral waiting for you!!   You can email your photos to AudreyForshey@gmail.com
