homerome: Beautiful Victorian In Cockeysville - 02/07/16 02:12 PM
Beautiful Victorian in Cockeysville
and old pictures.
While touring my  Victorian home at 37 Sherwood Road 21030 over the weekend, the owner shared these photos showing some of his renovations.
When you realize the home was built in 1887, it's interesting to see how the property has changed.
Warning: You may want to adjust the sound before clicking. 
Love hearing the owner talk about living in this beautiful home, the gazebo porch, the additions and his car collection.
No problem with space when you also have
 garage parking for 9-10 cars.

homerome: A View From The River Cottage - 02/07/16 12:48 PM
A View From The River Cottage
Talk about sheer beauty...take a look at a few photos taken yesterday while hiking on the NCR trail to the river cottage.  There was even one lady and her dog cross county skiiing. She mentioned it was much easier to ski than to walk. I definitely agree.
This little cottage would make a great fishing/hunting lodge, guest house or a quiet get-a-way in Baltimore County. 
Seriously does it get any prettier?
The river cottage is being sold along with the main property at 1560 Blue Mount Road in Monkton, Md. 21111.

Inviting New Members
It's easier for me to get a new listing. 
When meeting real estate professionals most are interested in my blogging.
In the past two weeks, I have invited nine people to join ActiveRain. These are people I connected with at  a CNE course and  an AR MeetUp.  I have met them all personally and they each seemed very enthusiastic. They couldn't wait to get their invitation.
 Of those nine, four joined but not one has written a blog. Even though I did do a phone and email follow up congratulating  each one for signing up.
Yes, I could call again and further encourage these … (16 comments)

 What Print Marketing Are You Doing ?
 A question asked by  Jeff Dowler CRS, this week, has gotten several dozen comments.
  Being a solo broker, all my properties are advertised every week in print media. Here is what this week's ad looks like.
Not only does this page have my active listings, it has homes that I need for specific buyers.
This page does more than show my listings. It promotes my website HomeRome.com, it promotes my weekly radio show, it shows properties that are Too Late, Coming Soon and Sold.
It promotes my book, my designations, my phone number and my email... making it quite easy for anyone to … (7 comments)

Who Needs All Those Letters?
 Recently there was a  question asking if the designations after a real estate agent's name meant anything to the general public.
   Those designations are not for impressing the public. Most have no idea what they stand for.
I love learning in all kinds of forms. It could be reading blog posts, webinars, real estate articles, going to a class or meeting with other real estate professionals.
Every transaction, every closing, every inspection, every appraisal...all give me the opportunity to learn more about selling real estate.
When there is an opportunity to take a class that  gives CE credit and/or … (11 comments)

homerome: What's Under That Carpet ? - 01/30/16 09:58 AM
What's Under The Carpet ? 
Please don 't assume what under that carpet. You might be surprised.
I have seen carpeted rooms with wood floors in closets. I have heard it said... that  same wood is in the rest of the room under the carpet.
Not necessarily so! 
When  buyers ask what's under the carpet.
Don't answer unless you are sure.
  When taking a listing, don't just ask, always check.
It is quite simple when you know how. If there are floor vents similar to the one below, just lift it up, take a look under the carpet. Find out if there is tile, concrete, or some type of wood that might be nice to … (24 comments)

homerome: Sunday's Topic... Negotiating With Margaret Rome - 01/29/16 05:21 AM
 Sunday's Topic... 
 Negotiating With Margaret Rome 
This has been another wonderfully busy week. There was the Baltimore Blizzard that canceled the RE8 Expo scheduled for this past Monday.

It postponed our Baltimore AR MeetUp which will now take place  with a lunch on Tuesday February 2nd. 
 This blizzard  canceled almost everything, shutting down much of our area, including mail delivery, trash pickup... not to mention the closing of schools and most business.
Promoting the Re8Expo and MeetUp took many phone calls, emails, blogs, and texts. The canceling and rescheduling  took  a bit more of the same.
Also scheduled this past week was Certified Negotiation  Class that was almost canceled because of … (16 comments)

Meet The Experts
Certified Negotiation Experts
The past two days were spent in a wonderful class led by Alan Dalton.  So glad I made the time to participate.
In more than 2 decades of Real Estate and alphabet soup behind my name, I can say this was the best and most useful course ever.
It was fun, practical and the eighteen of us gained a higher level of negotiation skills to better help our clients.
Now  I have one more designation to add to my long list...

 Have You Thought About A Paper Organizer?
Could you or your clients benefit by engaging  a professional organizer?
 How much time is wasted searching for information?
Are your files  a bit messy?
Could you use some help organizing your business papers?
How about your home office?
Would you take a picture of your desk right now and share it?
In case of emergency...
Would your family be able to find the checkbook? Would they know what bills to pay?
Would they be able to find insurance policies, will or POA? 
How would it feel to  file your 2015 tax return on time?

At noon every Sunday I do a live radio show. But has anyone noticed we had a BLIZZARD in Baltimore?

Sure hope there is someone there to run the show.

So Pretty From Inside
Sitting in my home office, this is my view on Saturday afternoon during Baltimore's blizzard. The winds are high and the snow is still piling up. 
But it is so pretty from inside.
This morning at 7:30 my contractor, Tony, was plowing my driveway. Within a couple of hours, there was no evidence that the plow had been here.
Since yesterday, even before the snow began, family, friends, neighbors and AR members have have been calling, emailing and texting.
So lucky to be prepared with enough supplies, in my  warm comfortable home with Phoebe watching me as I sit at my desk.

The Snow Has Begun In Baltimore
This comes as no surprise since this storm has been predicted for days now.
This morning after the gym, I stopped at Trader Joe's. They open at 8:00 and I was there before 8:15.
There were lines of people and they were already out of milk and eggs.
Our city has already begun shutting down. The National Weather Service issued a Blizzard Warning  forecast yesterday and the Governor declared a state of emergency this morning.
The snow began at 2:45 today with predictions of up to two feet along with  high winds in the Baltimore area.
Note on the weather map … (16 comments)

Thank You Seth Dailey
I spent a lovely afternoon at a Top Producer Agent Mastermind Lunch at
Liberatore's in Perry Hall, Md.
My friend and fellow CyberStar® invited me to join the group of about 30 agents today. It was a round table discussion, the subject technology.
A list of topics were brought up and then discussed by the group. Seth was an excellent speaker and moderator and made me feel very welcome in a group that everyone seemed to already know each other.
Thank You Seth Dailey
