  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...

We are celebrating the birthday of a dear friend and  the founder of The CyberStars(tm) Allen Hainge. Many of us affectionately call him Bubba. You have heard me talk about these Stars before. Who Are Those Stars in Outer Space?  This is a wonderful group of about 225 tech savvy agents who love to share their knowledge with others. Today, October  6TH, is Allen's Birthday and a few us decided to surprise him. I offered to get the cake and, as a CyberStar, it had to be just a bit techie. Found out that The Gucci Giant, in Pikesville, can reproduce any photo for the top of the cake. Perfect. I photographed the CyberStars' Logo and took it  to the Giant this morning.                                                                                                                            ...

This is one of the best ideas that I have seen in sometime. I can think of several ways to use this. How about you?   Recently sold this Penthouse Condo  Baltimore Penthouse # 607, 1 Gristmill Ct. Annen woods, Pikesville, Maryland 21208   and we had our home inspection today. The windows are high and have shades that need to be raised and lowered depending on the sun's location and the time of day.   Being vacant, nothing to stand on, there was no way to reach the shades to pull them down. This brilliant buyer shows up with this clever, quite unique invention.  Someone probably makes this hooker broom but if so, I'm not aware. Did I just name this new tool. The Hooker Broom...A New Invention! One end there is a hook and the other is a broom. You can hang up the broom in any closet makin...

Housing Stats: New Home Sales Financed by the FHA   The Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development Friday released New Residential Home Sales survey data for March 2010.  Below is a graph which illustrates how borrowers are financing their new home purchases. "FHA IS THE WAY" has been the motto of many a mortgage banker and broker since the collapse of the secondary mortgage market in 2007. Notice how FHA marketshare has grown since then...one might argue many of the first time home buyers who took advantage of the tax credit were able to do so primarily because of the FHA's programs.   FHA was created in 1934 to serve as an innovator in the mortgage market, to meet the needs of citizens otherwise underserved by the private sector, to stabilize local and regional ...

Well not exactly my kitchen, but I think I have eaten more meals in the Suburban House than in my own house or we did until last night. And we almost never get through a meal without seeing a friend or client. It’s just our favorite neighborhood deli and restaurant!  They make the best omelets (seems like about a dozen eggs), the best chopped salads, and have the best waitress, Mitzu, who knows that when I order a “chop chop” that’s not what it is called on the menu. It is an oriental chicken salad that is finely chopped. They make wonderful matzoh ball soup and sky-high corned beef sandwiches and one of the best steak subs around. If you still have room, their desserts are gorgeous. But look at what happened at 5:00 pm yesterday: Fire in storage building damages popular Pikesville rest...

The number one fear Americans have is public speaking.  Number two is Death!The first survey to point this out appeared in the October 7, 1973 issue of the Sunday Times of London. The findings have been verified by countless other surveys and studies in subsequent years. The Times survey found that 41% of the 3000 respondents listed "fear of public speaking" as their number one fear, while 19% listed "death." For the businessperson, either in a small company or a large corporation, the ability to speak coherently and persuasively is a vital skill, but this "fear of speaking" holds many otherwise competent people back. About two years ago I began doing seminars for the public about credit and finance.  As a Financial / Mortgage consultant, I had spent nine years just meeting one client a...

A couple of weeks ago I received this email (used with permission): Dear Mrs. Rome, I don't know if you remember me. My name is Kaliq Simms, and about six months ago, we happened to be getting gas at the same station on Reisterstown Rd. I recognized your name on your license plate. You had been the seller's realtor for a house we contemplated buying about six years ago when we were shopping for our current home. I was so impressed with your professionalism and great personality. We ended up buying another home (no fault of yours, of course), but I continued to visit your website periodically over the years, as I knew we would eventually want to sell our current starter home. Long story short, you gave me your number at the gas station that day and told me to call you when we decided to...

Zebulon Pike went to a lot of places in his life of soldiering and exploration around the start of the 19th century.  Pikesville was not one of them, but that didn't stop the folks in Maryland from naming their town after him. And even after decades in the Baltimore area, I can't tell you why they did.  But I can tell you about the things old Zebulon never saw in this suburban area that is defined by ZIP code 21208. Pikesville sits northwest of Baltimore City, and just about all of it is in Baltimore County.  Like many old areas, though, the city/county dividing line was drawn after the area grew up and so the line runs right through some properties.  Not long ago I sold a house on Seven Mile Lane that was Pikesville but also Baltimore City. What's even more interesting is that some hou...
