Remember that one time I flew to Berlin to personally deliver the keys to their new Maryland home to my buyers? If we've been virtually or otherwise connected for a few years, you know the story, if not, you can read it here. Back then I called it one of the highlights of my career which is still...
Last week I talked to a friend of a friend about buying his first home. It's one of my favorite Real Estate conversations to have. The excitement is real, and contagious, and I love being a (huge) part of this journey. You can only buy your first home once after all! I'd like to buy a house Andre...
My favorite color is fall. I just love everything about the season, the fragrances, the sweater weather, and my favorite trails painted in all shades of yellow, orange and reds, glowing in the autumn sun. Leaf peeping is probably my top fall activity, making apple and pumpkin picking a close seco...
3820 Thoroughbred Lane is as charming of a home as it gets! The original farmhouse was built in 1810 with parts dating back to 1736... notice the half-timbered wall in the kitchen? It's reminiscent of old German architecture and not a detail you'll find in any modern clononial. Two 3-story additi...

I just l...

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...
