Sincerely, this listing agent. For a split second I was contemplating publishing just these words today because it is the very advice I'd like to shout from my virtual rooftop. The busier the Real Estate market in Silver Spring and beyond has gotte...
Special delivery! Last weekend after showing homes in Silver Spring, I made time for one more stop in the Fairknoll subdivision to make one very special delivery. My buyers just closed on their new house at the end of 2020 (the very best way to end that year, wouldn't you agree?) and are currentl...
