This young family needs a home! Their home went under contract and will be closing next month. With all the media talk about it being a buyer's market and how hard it is to sell a home....they listed their home with me and voila it sold! Now we are trying to move them into the Summit Chase neighborhood. No problem...it's a buyer's market. Well not so fast. There are no homes on the market that meet their needs. They really want an end of group with a garage.  We have been out looking at lots of other areas and lots of other houses. They are being flexible. But they know what they want. So this is what we did. I made the flyer below...put it on blue paper and went to each end unit, with a garage. in the entire Summit Chase neighborhood. Within minutes, I had a phone call. It happened to ...

Take a Look Inside This 4 Bedroom Colonial With a Pool at 8271 Streamwood Dr.  Baltimore County Location $399,944  Will Be Available in the Next Couple of Weeks!    Original owners have taken such good care and pride of ownership shows in this four bedroom 3.5 Bath Center Hall Colonial.

   In a few weeks this 4 bedroom 3.5 bath colonial will be on the market  because the call came today!                                              The original owners are in the process of getting this Willow Glen North Colonial  in show ready condition. Very few of these homes were built and even fewer come on the market. They are quite desirable. This colonial was  constructed  with an additional 2 feet  to give a larger first floor laundry room which has a clothes chute and space for the large extra freezer. The master bedroom is also larger and has a huge walk in closet. I will be getting interior photos in the next week or so. In the meantime... you can see the front  of the well manicured lot and a couple of pool photos.       The first floor family room with  gas fireplace and b...

    I am waiting to see if they are 100% Sure they want to list with me. Knowing the two questions that must receive positive answers..I am waiting for a phone call later today. Yes, I went on listing appointment yesterday. These sellers were referred to me by two people..one a best friend and one a former client (her sister). When I asked if they were 100% sure about selling..there was not much hesitation...just qualified by ..'if we get the right price.'  The second question:  Are you 100% sure you want to use me? A bit more hesitation. You see,  I am the first Broker and they may want to talk to others...no problem. They are going to call with their answer. In the meantime, I am going to tease you with a few photos that are just perfect for this holiday weekend. Take a look and let m...

 Another  HomeRome Listing in Stevenson 21208 With  Swimming Pool  is Under Contract..or as I like to say...Too Late. The "Too Late" Banner is placed on my listings when they go under contract. That's what happened to my new listing at 3506 Gardenview Rd.                                                       I have more new photos to post but we had 1/2 dozen showings within 24  hours and a ratified contract followed. Love it when the right buyer and the right house comes together.                          Our home inspections are set for next week and settlement is scheduled mid July!                                                                                                                                This post was inspired by  Barbara Todaro..showing how our pending Sales Can ...

 Today I saw a matzoh ball smile and I think it was because 25 ActiveRainers were having such a good time in Baltimore. The place was Suburban House and here is a sampling of the various lunches.               Is this matzah ball smiling?                                              This sandwich is called "Mother in Law"           This is one of many 'create your own' salad.                        A grilled Reuban                A serving of challah French toast.                                 Homemade Rainbow cake with chocolate layers   Here is the list of ActiveRain members who attended the lunch in Baltimore today and how you can   Be With ActiveRainers Without Being With ActiveRainers!   Hoping to see more posts from the special members who shared this day with us in Baltimore

You can be with ActiveRainers without being with ActiveRainers. Our wonderful get together for lunch today at the Suburban House Restaurant was a huge success. There were two people with us not on the list.. One was Emily Medvec from Sante Fe who called yesterday asking for the address of the restaurant. This delightful white bear, a bunch of candy, including M&M's and a bouquet of balloons were waiting at our table when I arrived about 11:30AM. Even though Emily could not be with us in person...she was definitely with us. Thank you Emily!!             The second person was my friend mARTi Garaughty(who did the cover of my book)whose art work was won by a few lucky ActiveRain members. And the winners are: C Tann won one for being the member at the most Baltimore gatherings. Mortgage Mam...

 One Plus One Equals Two Dozen When You Start With The Right One! ActiveRain Gathering in Baltimore!                                          How can one plus one equal two dozen? It all started a few weeks ago when Mary Yonkers commented that she would be in the Baltimore area. A phone call to set up a date turned into a full blown ActiveRain happening. It was just going to be the two of us meeting (one plus one) until I wrote a post asking others to join us. Mary, plus three other reblogs,  plus word of mouth has turned into a gathering of over 25. How cool is that?   Whenever I hear a member say something like:  "I wish we could do that in an area closer to me."  my suggestion... pick up the phone, send an email, make a comment or better yet write a blog. It only takes you and one ot...

At today's settlement, I found the "keys" to another successful settlement.   By now you know I have some creative sellers. Remember my seller with this   New Invention? At today's  settlement I found the "keys" to another successful settlement. After the papers were signed, the checks cut and the funds wired, it was time for the exchange of the keys. The seller had a plastic bag filled with a bunch of keys... the main door key, garage key, mail key, the elevator key plus a few duplicates. We all have seen that familiar bag of keys and the "oh my how will I figure them out" look. Here is the solution! My brilliant seller, I might add that most of my sellers are brilliant, made a drawing!  A simple drawing, tracing each key and then describing which key opens the front door, the lobby, t...

   One of the townhouse condos  that I sold this year looked like this while it was listed  45 Farmhouse Court- Annen Woods- Pikesville-Baltimore, Maryland 21208    In case you are not clicking on the link here is a reminder of the kitchen before and during the renovation.                                        Stopping by to visit the new owner, today, I was delighted to see her wonderful changes.      Take a look at the renovated  kitchen with new ceramic floor, backsplash, stainless appliances, granite counters and new cabinets. It was dinner time and lots of activity going on.                            The living, dining area, along with the foyer have brand new gleaming hardwood floors. The only thing remaining is the chandelier which looks perfectly sparkling with new surrounding...

I really like adding this SOLD burst to my listings. It means that a special buyer has made a successful bid and the property is under contract!  One Gristmill Court  Unit 303Annen WoodsBaltimore, Maryland 21208$264,944 Here  WAS  your opportunity....in the convenient location of Annen Woods, a gated community with other condos and townhouses. No worries about cutting grass, raking leaves, shoveling snow, cleaning gutters or roof repairs. This third floor spacious 2 bedroom and 2 full baths has it all! The monthly condo fee covers the use of the elegant clubhouse, swimming pool, and tennis court. Kind of like being on vacation year round. And did I mention that this is a gated community with evening security personnel? Enter into the spacious ceramic foyer where the oversized windows a...

  It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like.... Halloween in Baltimore. This afternoon while visiting  dear friends and former clients who live across near 7011 Concord Rd. Colonial Village, Pikesville, MD 21208 Single Family Home Under $185,000   I could not help but take a few photos to share with you. Thinking about going over tomorrow night and taking Brad Andersohn's  suggestion. Did you read his post?  ''... don't forget to do as many tricks as you give out treats. My favorite trick of all is to Dress up as though you are the inanimate Halloween Decor for your lawn. Example: scarecrow, Frankenstein, etc. Be as still as you can. When someone walks by, jump out and scare the heck out of them. (not little children of course) It works every time!"         This is just some of  the eye candy o...
