When we get a new listing ready for the market, it's the details that matter the most. It's the carefully arranged display on the coffee table, the cozy fireplace enhanced with a few accessories on its mantel, and the throw draped over the reading chair. It's the color on the walls emphasizing th...
Craftsmanship, custom details, privacy, space, meticulously maintained... this sums up this extraordinary estate home at 20528 Riggs Hill Way in Brookeville, MD that sits towards the end of what is undoubtedly one of Montgomery County's prettiest roads. Embedded in a small enclave of homes that a...
Don't ask a REALTOR® how experienced they are, but how many times they've renewed their license. That's advice I stumbled upon during my morning news hour - and, I like it! It's a good point. When the market is hopping, it tends to be easier for (newer) agents to find/be assigned business. The de...

More than 6K square feet above grade (plus basement), 2.54 acres of tranquility, 3-car s...

Every room in this gorgeous home could have been on the cover of a magazine. The improvements that had be...

Occasionally, though, obstacles just seemingly drop out of thin air right into our path and we must figure out a way to climb over them. Overcoming obstacles in Real Esta...
MMM! For this month's marketing meeting, we didn't stay as local as we usually do. We had plans to visit a few specialty stores in Hyattsville, MD to hunt for new staging supplies (multiple listings are in the works) and decided to just pick a place nearby. Shagga is an Ethiopian restaurant servi...
I've been working with wonderful sellers (I have the best ones) for a couple of months now. The process actually began well before that but we have been in serious preparation mode since about January. I would love to tell you all about this stunning property in Brookeville, MD but our MLS rules ...
Let me start out by saying how relieved I am to see the beginning of the spring market and more listings blooming again! There's nothing worse (well, of course, there is but for the sake of this story, bear with me... it is frustrating) than having qualified, prepared, and excited buyers and very...
