Real Estate and Diabetes...Can The Two Co-Exist? Before I answer that question let me say that I am a diabetic. I have been living with the highs and lows of this medical condition for around 14 years now. It was a bummer when I first found out but not surprising. My father had diabetes and my sister too and she passed away just over a year ago from complications of the disease. It is not an easy disease to live with or control. Being a diabetic has never affected my ability to be a Realtor® though, at times, it did affect how much (6 comments)
Log Cabin Living- A Front Porch Like No Other - 06/07/12 06:23 PM
Log Cabin Living- A Front Porch Like No Other I love a front porch. There is something so relaxing about sitting on one no matter the time of day. On my front porch I have enjoyed some really good cups of coffee as my thoughts gathered to start another day. I have watched natures wonders from my front porch as the deer and the geese and the rabbits and the birds wake up and begin their day as well. I have even solved lifes problems sitting on my own front porch or at least have felt I have. And it is always interesting (9 comments)
Annapolis Views..There's Plenty of Wildlife Around Annapolis - 06/06/12 08:28 PM
Out and About Loving Annapolis There's Plenty of Wildlife Around Annapolis Having lived in many homes in and around Annapolis I have seen my share of wildlife. Everything from little critters and birds on up. But I must say living in Davidsonville has brought the most wildlife to my doorstep and most of it has been a true delight. The first year I lived here I had peacocks in my yard and on my roof. Seems there was a peacock farm behind me and they wander during mating season. The next year brought a lamb along with very large white (5 comments)
Daylight Savings Time Adds Hours To Showing Time - 06/05/12 07:32 PM
Daylight Savings Time Adds Hours To Showing Time I am working with a wonderful couple who are moving from Northern Virginia to the Annapolis area. His job moved this way and he has always loved the Annapolis area so felt this was a great time to make the move. The market in Northern Virginia is hot, way hotter than it is here. They put their home on the market on the first and had 4 contracts and were ratified on the 3rd. That means it is paramount that we find a home on this end pronto. Thankfully with more (5 comments)
Oops This Rental Is Gone... It Pays To Be Prepared - 06/04/12 07:25 PM
Oops This Rental Is Gone The rental market is hot in Crofton. I put this end unit townhouse on the market for $1900 and had 4 applications within the matter of a few days. The landlord had done a great job of keeping this home in great condition and between the last tenants who stayed 4 years and this tenant he installed a new kitchen and some new flooring and he always keeps it freshly painted and maintained. Rentals are going fast in Crofton so you need to have your ducks in a row before looking as the great ones (6 comments)

You can never get enough of fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. Each day is different and each day brings new surprises. This day was one of those perfect weather days where you would give your eye teeth to be out there even if there was nary a fish caught. Yes another day of fishing on the Chesapeake Bay is worth its weight in gold. And the stories of the one that got away are priceless.

Thinking of Selling Your Heritage Harbour Home? Recently I had the pleasure to work with a wonderful daughter and her Mother.

After all was done and everyone safe and sound in Maine the daughter wrote this. "Martha marketed the home of (3 comments)
