- 06/25/16 06:47 PM
Last Sunday, Father's Day, we had a one hour open house on
718 Pacific Street
Baltimore, Md. 21211
I figured no one would show up. Boy, was I wrong.
We had 11 groups that actually signed in.
And on Tuesday, The Baltimore Fishbowl published
this wonderful article
And a few days later we had a ratified contract.
Did we get the contract because of the article?
Did we get the contract because I sent the article to the agents who showed the property?
Did we get the contract because of the open house?
Did we get the contract because of the MLS?
Did we get the contract because of the many on line sites?
Did we get

Every month a dozen plus girlfriends get together for dinner. We have known each other for over thirty years.

Tonight was at Liberatore's in Timonium where we had excellent food and superb service.

homerome: Remembering - Lee Rome Memorial Award 2016
- 06/17/16 11:03 AM
Franklin Square Hospital
This hospital treated the whole person not the patient. It was the doctors who looked first at my
husband and then at the chart and lab results!
Lee Rome had a BIG diagnosis but he was treated first as a gentleman, a husband, a father, a business man and a friend to many.
Thirteen years before Lee died, we were told there was no chance of survival. We were in and out of medical facilities including Baltimore's Johns Hopkins, Boston's Mass General and New York Presbyterian.
Brilliant doctors were at each one but it was at Franklin Square Hospital that the true brilliance came through.
First and foremost I had confidence in
homerome: Just Write It
- 06/16/16 08:52 AM
In the past couple of weeks there have been THREE different agents who have shown my listings, requested the disclosure paperwork and each one said they were writing an offer.
One has emailed and called more than a half dozen times! They want to update me.... to tell me they were preparing an offer, asking if I wanted a LOI (letter of intent) and commenting on the buyer's concerns. They have seen the property on 3 different occasions and each visit they stayed for over an hour.
Another agent gave me all the the terms verbally and said they would submit on Tuesday (that Tuesday has

- 06/14/16 07:03 PM
Bob was talking about dead space in advertising and that made me take a look at my own weekly print advertising.
There is a lot of information in this ad...and not much dead space.
Notice the advertising above shows homes for sale, homes that are 'Too Late', new listings and an Open House.
There is also a section for buyers looking for specific properties.
The ad shows my tag line, my email, my website, my book, my latest MCNE designation and my weekly radio show.
My number is in more than a dozen times...making my phone ring and keeping my pipeline full.

On March 15th, I went with my friend KC to the veterinarian but
it was not time to say goodbye.
Franki gave and was given another 3 months after that visit. We weren't even sure she would make it through that night.
Franki helped transition her owner with the move to the new home. But Franki was tired and it was now time to say good bye.
Rest in peace sweet Franki.
You were loved by KC and you shared your love with all of us.
Licks and kisses to Johnnie.

homerome: Best Way To Get New Listings The Rome way
- 06/06/16 07:43 PM
After more than 25 years in real estate, unique listings are what I love to sell and market. Lately on my weekly radio show, I share those properties that I enjoy. They are the ones other agents have not been able to sell, or their only solution is reduce the price. I am not talking about cookie cutter houses and cloneonials where the comps speak for the market place.
Nope I am talking about the home that was on the railroad tracks, the contemporary home right on the beltway, the home that was originally a church with a cemetery in back,
homerome: You Don't Have To Give Me Your Name
- 06/06/16 07:18 PM
This is a response to a post written by Fred Griffin
Early in my real estate career, I remember being told, when on 'floor duty', not to give out any information such as the price, the number of bedrooms, or the address.
You waited until you got their information including their name, phone number, how much they made, how much they owed... etc.
That was before caller ID.
Do they still have floor duty? Do they still teach this?
From the beginning, I did not follow the rules. I gave out the requested information and I still do.
When calls came in, I would actually say I

- 06/05/16 09:03 AM
This is a question I get during the week from friends, colleagues and clients. What is the topic for Sunday's live radio show?
At dinner last night, my friend and fellow agent asked about the show. I had no specific topic. Let's see if anyone calls in with an interesting question or comment about real estate.
After all, the callers set the tone and discussion. My friend was surprised and told me she would have a 'heart attack' being out on a Saturday night and not having a subject prepared.
But...can you ever be prepared for real estate?
