homerome: You Are Too Late!
- 05/24/16 10:41 PM
It happened again today when I put a sign rider on my new listing at
7 Green Heather Ct. 21208
By now you know what I mean.
That rider reads TOO LATE.
After ratifying the contract this evening, I asked the seller if I could put up my sign rider. Big smiles and a thumbs up.
I love placing these "TOO LATE" riders on my listings.

homerome: Good Morning Deer
- 05/20/16 09:28 PM
At six o'clock this morning I was greeted with these two guys maybe 20 feet from my window. I started taking pictures, thinking they would bolt. To my pleasant surprise, they stayed and I kept clicking away.
There must be 40 or more photos but they did not seem to mind me being so close.
Warning: the video is a bit boring but real estate is quite exciting.
It was nice to watch these creatures for a few minutes.
Nice to say good morning deer!

This chair, above, is in one of my favorite properties. When I pulled it to sit down, I noticed the small house.
Of course I took a picture and enlarged it. Wow! The small house was painted by an artist and it is almost like a photograph except it is a painting.
My wonderful owners told me they bought the chair for a dollar and their friend did the painting.
Have you seen these small paintings?
Do you have pictures to share?
Sometimes you just have to look closer.

There is no time to write a blog post tonight so I am doing what

And that is just what I am doing tonight.
Checked my iPhone camera just now and this is a picture I took today. It was in an animal hospital's window. Thought you might enjoy it.

Take a look at the face of Budweiser and tell me this is not something you would like to be greeted with each day.
Zach is also a handsome kitty.
Do you have room in your home and in your heart for either of these pets?
Please give the Baltimore Humane Society a call at the number above or go out and visit Zach and Budweiser.

homerome: Anyone Can Be A Buyer Or Seller
- 05/09/16 10:24 PM
Buyers and sellers are everywhere.
If you are alert, there are so many opportunities!
This post was inspired by Candice Donofrio
and I commented how lucky we are.
We get to choose who we want to work with.
We are lucky to have the choice.
Real estate is a such a great business!!
Where do you find buyers and sellers?
Former agents have turned into buyers and sellers and they also send referrals. People, from my former position as an RN, have become clients including doctors, nurses and former patients. Artists and owners of my custom ceramic/porcelain pieces have bought and sold homes.
Business owners, hair dressers and waitresses

- 05/08/16 07:01 PM
When recently listing, Unit 400 in The Risteau located at 2331 Old Court Rd.21208, I was impressed with all the quiet seclusion of the manicured landscaping, trees and brick terraced walks and patios.
Below are views of the French gardens and pool from this 4th floor condo .
You can still find beauty everywhere at one of my favorite condos - The Risteau located 2331 Old Court Road 21208 - you can find the loveliest landscaping .....colorful flowers and expansive lawns.

Is it very late Saturday night and a wonderfully busy day. It started with a scheduled showing at 11 AM that I turned into an Impromptu OPEN HOUSE.
Since I plan to be at the property, why not put up the open signs?
Today, the day before Mother's Day, Sudbrook Park Neighborhood had their annual flower sale. It was held in the open space across the street from my 1022 Windsor Rd.
It was so nice to see the cars ...a mini traffic jam, bikes, strollers and walkers stopping to pick up containers of colorful flowering plants.
I was able to mingle a bit with
homerome: Another Too Late Sign
- 05/06/16 09:12 PM
They were referred to me by wonderful past clients and our first meeting was April 24th. When asked what their goal was, I found out they wanted this home sold quickly.
The listing was signed and my sale sign went up right away.
Within a day or two on the MLS, the calls for showings started.
The contract was ratified on May 5/4/16.
That's about as quick as possible.
I do love placing those "TOO LATE" riders and
Roger D. Mucci and Mickey are my inspiration.

It is a wonderfully busy May!
Many are just overwhelmed with our robust Spring market
It's way to busy to take time to plan or join a MeetUp.
Not these ActiveRainers!
This group is also swamped with real estate but
Cheryl Ritchie Andrea Bedard
Martha Brown Patricia Kennedy Alan Gross

all took time to have a lively and delicious lunch together.
Once again we met at Bare Bones and had our favorite waitress, Becca, who was so efficient and attentive. You would think we were her only table. Hope we, as agents, make our clients feel the same way.
The topic of conversation was wide ranged.
There was the food

This is what happens when you answer your phone or respond to an email from an Internet inquiry.
The letter below was written by Brian White.
We went to settlement a few weeks ago on his parents home.
This is what real estate is all about.
This is why I answer my phone and this is why I respond to emails and Internet inquirers.
