Last week brought some more interesting posts on all things real estate - and a few things other. Here are some that caught my eye:Kat's continuing life journey:  Kat Palmiotti – I just found this one, and it struck a nerve. We never quite retire, do we?

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a post, Should Your Client Get a Pre-Listing Inspection?  It was well written and posted by “Kukun--240-483-3649 Franklin Carroll”.  It looked a little wee bit too perfect to be written by a blogger who was a real estate professional – more like a service that provide...

Georgetown has been awfully chic and trendy since I moved to Washington back in the 1970’s - and long before that, as well. It got its start in 1745 as a tobacco inspection center and since then has become a bustling part of our nation’s capitol, and home to politicians, diplomats and other reall...
It's Sunday morning again! As the week flew by, these posts (for one reason or another) caught my eye:Andrea Bedard: Fair Housing: military status, a new protected class in Maryland  This is a good idea that might have a few unintended consequences.  Many of the comments are as interesting as the...
It's not unusual for clients to sent flowers after a great settlement, but one of my buyers completely outdid herself she downsized from a house in Chevy Chase to a condo in my favorite building in Georgetown.She passed on some iris bulbs that her father had planted in front of her childhood home...
