This Is What ActiveRain Is About
 
ActiveRain is about the caring, the sharing and the learning...
seen here every single day.  
 
 
 
 
Take a look at this comment received on one of my
 recent posts: 
"Hi Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland great collage!  I definitely need help with making my own graphics."
 
 
After a couple of days of playing phone tag, Karen and I connected. What seemed like a couple of minutes  of chatting was actually 3/4 of an hour. We both learned from each other and had a lot of fun during the process.
Here is  Karen's follow up post of our conversation.

Behind Closed Doors
 
What a clever idea!
Just saw these closets in a home today.
 
Take a look at the 5, artist painted, doors below.
 
 
Three of the painted doors are in the kitchen... just perfect for separate pantry spaces.
Another set of double doors lead to a large storage closet and the bottom right  photo is a medicine cabinet door.
 
Is this giving you any ideas?

 June Snowballs In Baltimore
 
There are different types of snowballs ...especially in the Baltimore area.  There are the winter ones that most people like to forget. 
 
 There are the summer snowballs ...the ones native to Baltimore. Some other areas call them snow cones but I think they shave the ice different.
 
 This is what a Baltimore snowball looks like. You can add marshmallow cream or soft serve ice cream in layers.
 
They are good plain like this spearment flavored one below.

Make Your Post Easier To Read
 
A post is easier to read when there is something to look at.
Always use a photo or a graphic when writing a blog.  The pictures taken during the course of my day will usually spark an idea for my daily  post.
If I want to make a specific point I'll create a graphic  with words.
You can see some samples in the collage below. 
 
 
 
Making my own graphics has been fun and creative. I have used free form drawing apps, found images in coloring books and with the help of a few other  programs have just made this a part … (23 comments)

Honey Do List Is Done
 
What a nice feeling knowing  my 'Honey Do' List is done.
Wonderfully busy day, morning appointments, meeting awesome friends at Tio Pepes for a 3 1/2 hour lunch, a listing appointment for a very unusual property and arriving  home after 9PM. 
Thanks  Steve Madden, Bayside Home Improvements, who gave me a quick estimate, completed my list of repairs and then emailed the receipts proving the work was finished.
Steve was on time, did a clean beautiful job and was a pleasure to be around.

 Lee Rome Memorial Award
 
Family Medicine
Franklin Square Hospital...Superb Care!
 
From the moment we were greeted at the hospital, emergency room or clinic the kindness and care was evident. Everyone was working together to make LEE feel welcome acknowledging  his condition and his feelings.  
The nurses and the brilliant doctors worked  together in unison.
The respect of the staff for each other was refreshing.
They were there to help the patient and family while helping each other as a team.  
That level of care continued.
These words,"please let us know if you need anything'', were repeated by each staff member and they really meant it.

Discussing Adult Beverages
 
Today on my live radio show  All About Real Estate
I was discussing adult beverages.
Now what does that have to do with real estate?
 
There was a showing at  my deck house
15932 Meadow Walk Dr. in Woodbine, Md. 21797
and
 I was talking about the two citrus trees on the patio.
Now how can you grow these trees in our Maryland climate?
Easy... if you have a heated greenhouse.  And this contemporary home on four acres has one.
When the weather is hot and humid the trees are kept outside. When there is a chill...just bring 'em in.
 
 Wouldn't it be nice … (22 comments)

How Did Your Radio Show Begin?
 
 
Many years ago, 25 but who's counting , I met Terry Stafford at a WCR meeting. Terry  was president of Women's Council of Realtors ® and hosting a live radio show. That show was ALL ABOUT REAL ESTATE.
 
I used to listen and when I had something to say.. would call the show. Before long I was invited as an occasional guest. I offered to be on call 12-1 every Sunday should Terry need a backup host or coverage for holidays or personal time. Sometimes that call would come in after 11 am and I would be at the studio … (15 comments)

Two Years Later...Thank You Kathi !
 
It was April 2013 when this   7 Acres of Charm 
went to settlement. 
  
                      
 
 
Today, two years later, comes this email from my friend.
 
''I was sitting in the dentist's chair on an ordinary morning in Maryland. He asked if I had sold my little farm yet, and I sadly replied, "No." I shared with him that I didn't think my Realtor was really working for me. There had been very few showings and little interest in the time I had it listed with her (nearly a year).  The fact was that I wasn't at all sure how long it was … (19 comments)

A last minute showing was requested by a delightful agent. No problem, I will meet you at my brand new listing on 4618 Hawksbury Road 21208 at 4:15 today.
 
I arrived at 3:45PM and placed an OPEN HOUSE sign on the rider. I also put the open house on the MLS system.
 
A text from the agent that their buyer was running late.
Again...no problem. I already had a visitor stop by from the sign. It was nice to see more potential buyers in the property.
That's how I do Impromptu Open Houses.

Should I Hire My Friend To Buy Or Sell A House?
 
 
 
 
When hearing this question, I  have heard mostly negative answers.
Don't work with a friend, it might interfere with your relationship.
 
I have  a different answer.
If your friend is the very best person to get the job done. 
Yes, then work with the friend!
 
 If not feel free to say: "I don't work with friends."
