homerome: Do You Have A Church Key ? - 08/29/15 04:37 PM
Do You Have A church Key?
 
 
A church key is a kind of bottle or can opener initially referred to as a small metal device for prying the caps off of glass bottles.
 
 
In 1935, cans of beer with flat tops needed this device to puncture the lids.  
One end is for bottles and the other for cans.
Even though this item was invented by D.F. Sampson in 1898, it was not called a church key until the 1950's. 
 

 
 
 While celebrating the 40th anniversary with some very special friends and former clients, I remembered the church keys in their previous house in Baltimore's Hunting Ridge. 
 
I  am still fascinated by their extensive collection.

 Will This Sign Work ...
If We Put It In The Right Place ?
 
Wouldn't it be nice if we could just hang this sign and keep on going? 
But is that realistic in life?
 
 
 
This cute sign was hanging in the  kitchen of a home I showed yesterday.
 
It made us all smile.
Make it a great week!

The Post I Am Not Writing Tonight!
Tonight, I made this comment: 
''Karen Fiddler,  I, too, love this post. I went on a listing appointment and offered to drive the client back to her assisted living home today...not realizing she did not know "exactly'  where she lived. That's a post!
But it is too late and I am not writing one tonight!'
 
 
If you are going to go out of your way to be nice...at least know what you are doing and where you are going! 
That 30 minute listing appointment turned into hours.
It is nice to be home and thanks Karen for helping me write...

Thank You Notes Are Still Appreciated
 
One of the callers from my radio show wanted to sell a property in Ocean City and he wanted me to be his agent.
Sorry but not possible since Ocean City is over 100 miles away. He was not pleased with any of his past agents and wanted me to come down to the ocean.
I did the next best thing by calling a special ActiveRain member, Kathy Opatka
 who was a delight and very helpful.  She referred me to another agent who was more familiar with this particular property.
Nothing in it for her but look what came in the … (14 comments)

homerome: A Grate Accent For Your Kitchen - 08/25/15 06:06 PM
A Grate Accent For Your Kitchen
 
This week when showing one of my special homes at
 15932 Meadow Walk Road,
I noticed these grate items used as a kitchen decor.
 
 
These kitchen tools come in various shapes and have different sizes of grating slots. They are very useful in the preparation of many  recipes.
When thinking of a grater, I think of grating onions, potatoes, cheese and also creating zest from oranges or lemon.
How do you use your grater?
 
Never thought about  graters  hanging on the wall but is makes a nice decoration and is an easy way to grab one if you need to do some food shredding.

Sunflowers Make Me Smile
 
On the way to showing my listing at 15932 Meadow Walk Rd, I passed this lovely field of sunflowers and wanted to get out and take a look but that would just have to wait. 
Not wanting to be late, I went to the house, turned all the lights on, opened a few of the blinds and just made sure the house was at it's best. 
The agent was a pleasure and his buyers were impressed with the property. They loved all the wood, the two stone fireplaces, the open concept, the decks, the greenhouse, the high ceilings all … (9 comments)

 At Least He Said Sorry
 
 
Today was scheduled with back to back appointments...11:45, 1 and 2. As always, I called to confirm.  Well I didn't call the 11:45 since that appointment was just made, and acknowledged by text, last night at 10:47
Ariving at 11:30AM to turn on lights, open shades...you know the routine....I waited.
At 12 noon I  sent a text to the agent: 
"In the lobby and waiting."
He sent this text back:
"Hi I left an early morning message on your voice mail that my client was sick and canceled for the day. Sorry you didn't get it." 
 
Hmmmm the appointment was set up and confirmed via text.  … (15 comments)

Avocado Green Bathrooms...
Can I Sell My House?
 
My radio show today received a call from Steve.
"I'm trying to find out what I should do with 2 dated bathrooms. I'm in the process of fixing up the house."
His house has 2 1/2 baths in avocado green and harvest gold.
My answer: 
" If we wait long enough, it will come back in style."
 
After the show I started thinking about this avocado green and maybe renaming it guacamole.
 
 
Here is what I found...Oh my it is back!!

What  To Expect When Withdrawing  From The MLS
 
After working with special sellers for a while, they have decided to take the home off the market and sell it to a family member. I agree with their decision and think it is the right thing to do in this situation.
 
 
It is always a good idea to tell a homeowner what to expect when  
 Taking  their  house off the market
When I went out to return the keys and retrieve my sign riders, they thanked me for  warning them about the different forms of contacts from numerous agents.
From the moment the listing was … (20 comments)

Gordon Lightfoot At Baltimore's Pier Six
 
 
 It was a beautiful warm night in Baltimore and a perfect  evening to enjoy a live concert at Pier Six.
 
Wonderful seats, a good friend (who adores this performer) and a full crowd made listening to  Gordon Lightfoot a delightful way to savor the sounds of this Canadian folk singer's music.
