I was on my way to visit my friend Margaret Rome in Baltimore when I spotted this camper right in front of me. These are my kind of people, life *is* better in the mountains. I didn’t know where they were headed but I was tempted to follow. I wanted to go where they were going.. imagining hikes o...
There's a happy new owner on Pine Top Lane in Burtonsville preparing to turn her new house into her forever home! My buyer had been looking for a few months and was getting quite discouraged by the scarce inventory and bidding wars on the few good options, when we came across an end unit townhome...
It is a glorious day to celebrate Oktoberfest! If you missed last weekend (I didn't, since I totally earned a couple of beer by participating in Ride of a Life Time), then you get another chance! The Oktoberfest celebration at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore (well, technically, it's o...
Mission accomplished. Goal crushed. Heart & mind happy (body... well, that's a different story). On Saturday I participated in a Ride of a Life Time at my local Life Time Fitness in Columbia, MD. I had signed up as a challenge rider, agreeing to ride all  four cycling classes offered that day and...

Elkridge, MD is a town in Howard County that has often been forgotten while county resources were poured into its pro...
This cute condo on Ducketts Lane in Elkridge, MD just set a record: highest net sales price in the history of the subdivision! 6344 Ducketts Ln is a 3 bedroom home at the end of a cul-de-sac. It's location in the subdivision was one of a few reasons why this one was under contract in no time. Bac...
583 days. That is not the DOM (days-on-market) of a property I looked at (although I have seen a few homes that have lingered on the market for that long in years past) but the number of days I did not get to see my family.  The Covid-19 pandemic kept me busy, Real Estate was hopping, the kids we...
There's no question, the best place for sushi in Howard County, MD is UMI Sushi right on Main Street in Ellicott City!I like to take my assistants out for a special dinner after (especially challenging but rewarding) transactions, and last week we stopped by UMI Sushi! We didn't make reservations...
It's been a long journey for my buyers, one that began approximately 15 years ago with the purchase of a home that was just meant to be a temporary one. Temporary turned into welcoming a puppy and a child to the family and raising both in the home, waiting out a recession and housing market recov...
