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...
The hunt for the right home is always one that I enjoy immensely. Creating a wish list and editing it as we move along, zeroing in on the one with every home tour. No matter how long it takes, it is always pretty obvious to me when we've found it. The excitement is not only palpable, it's contagi...

I always strive to present the very best offer I can for my b...

This immaculate home beautifully showcases the characteristics that make a mid-century modern home so special: the open floor plan, one level living, the indoor/outdoor flow, the roof line, the clerestory windows, the sleek architec...
About 3 months ago, I wrote a blog post titled Sorry to disappoint, deals are (still) hard to come by... Today I have to add: but not impossible. I work with a limited number of investor clients and always keep an eye out for them. Part of my market watch and daily perusing of newly listed and co...
Owning a home comes with many benefits. Managed well, it is like a savings account that can pay off handsomely. It is the best long-term investment one can make, and a path to building generational wealth. Long-term, however, does not lead to instant gratification. But being able to come home to ...
On Christmas Day we ventured into the city to see the national Christmas tree. While the crowds were squeezing in to get a good shot in front of the White House, this REALTOR® was much more interested in the block of historic mid-19th century rowhomes on Jackson Place, right across the street. No...
Thursday is the best day to list a home. It's primetime to capture the weekend traffic and aim for a quick sale. The problem buyers - still - face at the beginning of 2023 is very low inventory. The screenshot above is from my regional MLS (Bright MLS) taken yesterday morning - a Thursday. My Mar...
