The Gaslight House in the heart of historic Frederick, MD is a gorgeous Italianate rowhome dating back to the 1810s. The original structure was expanded several times, culminating in its characteristic L-shape by the mid-1880s. Its exquisite interior holds historic treasures such as a restored cu...
This last weekend I showed a townhome in Crofton, MD that was onehundredandtenpercent ready for (the) buyers. It was spotless, decluttered and organized. It looked clean and smelled clean. My buyers and I were wow'd and we appreciated the effort that clearly went into preparing this home for the ...

That is a dramatic dif...

Hearing the headlines that interest rates have doubled, sales have slowed, demand has dwindled... leaves little doubt, the Real Estate market is changing. Just one quick glance at my morning Market Watch (for Montgomery & Howard County) confirms that. The number of active listings is often in the...
When you have a pet and want to buy a condo one of the first things we'll check for is the pet policy. There's a field in our multiple listing service that requires the listing agent to disclose the pet policy of the condominium. The choices are: yes, no, case-by-case, size/weight restrictions, n...
