  ''Dearest home of over 30 years: Wow-it’s gonna be really hard to leave you. What can I say when people ask about you? When I first saw you, I couldn't believe how big you were. 1800 square feet of sun-filled open-ness with 2 huge bedrooms, 2 full baths, a large (15 x 7) laundry room, eat-in kitchen, security entrance, and a gorgeous 15-foot balcony overlooking big trees and beautiful landscaping. In fact, while the city has grown and changed, the only change here is that the trees have gotten taller!    I remember when I first looked at you and learned that your neighborhood in Mt. Washington was called Pill Hill. I soon found out that this unique and rare find in B-more, in a tucked-away-from-traffic residential neighborhood was called Pill Hill because there wereso many medical pro...

   Matchmaker Make me a match. A young couple is moving to Baltimore and looking for their special home to live and work. It does not need to be big or luxurious. It does need to be charming, practical, loaded with character, and have a little bit of land for some significant gardening.      Take a look at this video showing how bountiful a garden can be in a very small area. Connecting with the land  Walkability is important. Close to a farmers market, shopping, with little dependence on a car. An open floor plan with an excellent workable kitchen for daily meal preparation and storage. Maybe a greenhouse or garden room for this herbalist. A finished attic, lower level, extra space for art studios, and wood floors would be ideal. Locations considered would be in Baltimore's Roland Park...

 Ten years ago in 2007, I was the buyer's agent on a very unique home. The buyers were a delightful family and I remember the listing agent was one of my favorites ... a pleasure to work with. This weekend I received a call from this family and we caught up a bit. The kids, not surprisingly, are  both 10 years older...no longer youngsters. They wanted to see another special home, same neighborhood, again very unique, and in walking distant from their current home. They are looking to right size and this other house fits their family's needs right now. The new house will be listed by the same agent from 10 years ago. We saw the house, we made an offer and it is verbally accepted. It all happened so fast but knowing the buyers, and having respect for the listing agent, made the negotiatio...

 It doesn't always have to be about real estate. This past week when visiting with my friend Peg Silloway, we went to  Woolworks in Mt. Washington. After all Peg is a fine weaver and loves to knit. I enjoyed  watching her and the store owner talk about the different colors, textures, weights and origin of so many beautiful fibers. If you are a knitter, you always take your wool to the window, or even outside, to allow the natural light to show off the true colors of the yarn.I did not participate in the conversation but did take photos while in this small knit shop on Falls Road in Baltimore, Md. Take a look at the video below. click to start and turn down your speakers If you enjoy the needle crafts, take time to visit Woolworks in Baltimore.

 When you specialize in unusual homes, it is sometimes interesting what special features you may find. This home built back in 1953 is one of the largest homes in the Cheswolde/Mt Washington area of Baltimore, Maryland 21209.  It looks like a pretty normal two story brick colonial on a large level corner but look what is just outside the back basement door.  Do you know where this leads?

Thankful in Baltimore   Last year on Thanksgiving Day, I ratified the contract on a special home in Ellicott City. This year I think it may be happening again. The buyers wanted to come back with a family member before they left town for the holiday. Being Thanksgiving, they were embarrassed to even ask. I was pleased to accommodate since our dinner was not until the evening.  Their concern... someone else might make an offer before they returned. We met for that one last look around the house and the decision was made. Write it up. Within the hour the contract was written, emailed to the buyer and signed.Since my seller was having an early Thanksgiving dinner, there was not enough time today and we will be meeting tomorrow. Post turkey day is still a thankful time to sign.   I like sel...

  Affordable neighborhood in the Mt. Washington school district Searching for a home in Baltimore City where you'll be able to send your children to The Mt. Washington School? Would it help if the neighborhood had great single family homes priced between $220,000 and $375,000? For many of my clients the answer to both of these questions is a resounding "yes!" While the go-to zip code for looking at Mt. Washington real estate online is 21209, many would-be-home-buyers are unaware of a great section of Baltimore's Mt. Washington located in the 21215 zip code.        This beautiful house was snatched up by my buyer clients immediately after it came on the market in December 2012. It's situated on a double lot located on Stuart Ave in Baltimore's Mt. Washington 21215 neighborhood. Our crite...

  Happy Birthday Beautiful Daughter!  Happiness is having Erica Rome living in Baltimore and celebrating her birthday with us.  Going through photos, it is pretty amazing that this little baby girl is now a beautiful, talented, interesting young woman who makes me very proud. That bottom right picture is Erica about 2 years old using my eye make up!

Multiple offers in Baltimore MD for a fixer upper property. It happened so fast we had to cancel the open house. The house went "under contract" in three days for significantly higher than our list price. This is the story of 2208 Sulgrave Ave Baltimore MD 21209, a classic colonial built in 1941 in the heart of Baltimore’s Mt. Washington neighborhood. My wonderful seller-clients have owned this home for over 45 years. They don’t build enough houses like this today; brick and slate with masonry walls and hardwood floors throughout. The first thing we did was empty the house. If you want to sell a fixer upper for top dollar it is imperative that you completely empty the house. People need to be able to clearly see the potential in the home without distraction. If everything needs to be ad...

  Baltimore’s Mt. Washington neighborhood is home to many foodies, and it seems no coincidence to this writer that is also home to the very best Japanese restaurant in Baltimore, Sushi Hana. Feast your eyes on this crunchy tuna roll; it's both beautiful and delicious!   Sushi Hana has two locations in Baltimore, these pictures were taken at 6080 Falls Rd in Mt. Washington. Here is a link to their website: http://sushihanabaltimore.com/index1.htm  On any given night you'll find a local Baltimore celebrity dining at this hot spot, its common practice to slowly look around the room and see who turned up to dine. I like to go here for lunch with my mother and my best friend. Take a look at these outrageous sweet shrimp we ordered, my Mom ate the fried shrimp heads. I learned from Duff Goldm...

Sometimes it Pays to Preview a Property!   A few weeks ago I received a sign call on 6202 Ivymount Rd. Baltimore 21209   but it was too late for these potential buyers..the property had just gone to settlement. We had a lovely conversation and they told me they had an appointment to interview a buyer's agent. I wished them luck and said if  any of my future listings fit their criteria, I would call them or their agent.   A week or so later another call from these same buyers. They did not think the agent they interviewed had a feel for what they wanted. Everyone, including these buyers, knows I am a listing agent. But this couple liked the way I knew the unusual homes and the area they were considering. They asked if I would consider taking them on. They told me they were not in a hurry...

  Another HomeRome Listing is Under Contract 6202 Ivymount Rd. Baltimore 21209 Contemporary White Brick Rancher    You know I  Really Like Saying 'Another HomeRome Listing is Under Contract'. This rancher is in one of my favorite areas of Baltimore City... named "Pill Hill" because of the all the doctors and pharmacists who originally lived in the area. I took the listing in June after it had been on the market, without success, for the prior six months. I really like this home and what it had to offer and did not think it was overpriced. I felt  The Right Buyer has not seen it!    The owner was also quite special...this lovely woman was my daughter's first grade teacher. So now I loved the area, I loved the house and I adored the owner. No way, I was not going to sell it! We had one of...

Margaret Rome got Tish Lloyd's brother and  Cinnamon's Uncle Chip  to join ActiveRain..Nah Nah--Na Nah Na! Tish is a dear ActiveRain friend and recently told me her brother, Chip, lives in Baltimore and gave me his contact information. On our first conversation, I realized Chip lives within blocks of MY home in Baltimore. We made plans to get together when time permitted. Today was that day!   Chip lives in a spectacular contemporary home so very close to me, I could have walked..decided to drive because of my busy schedule. Was just going to stop by for a few minutes, introduce myself and then get on with my day. That few minutes turned into two hours and before I knew  it... late for my next appointment. It was worth it. We talked about real estate, we talked about homes, we talked ab...
