Monday night football was the Baltimore Ravens playing in Cincinnatti. The Bengals looked strong and came from behind to win. Baltimore lost 20 to 27. What a finish. The cries in Baltimore were painful.
Better luck next week.
I'm getting on the phone to Brian to see if he needs me to play next week! (4 comments)

The MAR Convention - Day 1 What a beautiful day on Monday it was- such a shame to be stuck inside a large dark convention center. But we are all here to be educated! MRIS which is our regional MLS provider offered a very informative class on how to "Get the best out of your web site". The presenter was very engaging and had an excellent power point presentation. A lot of the substance I have already found by reading posts on Active Rain. The best news was the announcement that "UPSHOT" is going away. This is the method that we use to upload our (4 comments)

Down the "ow-shun hon!" That's how we say "down at the beach" in Balmer (Baltimore) Our once a year pilgrimage to the Maryland Association of Realtors Conference in Ocean City begins today. The weather is beautiful and the vendor list is vast. Lots of CE credit on offer too. Last night we were invited to the hottest ticket in town at "Macky's". Props once again (this was the 4th year in a row I have attended) to FNMC a division of National City Mortgage who hosted a huge shindig with food and an open bar. Prior to that we mingled at "Jive" as we were wined (2 comments)
My Son Drew, just celebrated his first year in Real Estate....literally. He has shown houses, (The first few months were definitely easier....for me) been present for contract signings, celebrated at "House Warming" parties, waited patiently for his dinner while I have taken client calls in the evening, endured long drives to drop off HOA docs and has been hugged, tweaked and kissed by many of my clients this past year. Cake: Compliments of one of my happy buyers. (8 comments)
"I have to have that." - 09/08/07 08:39 PM
How many more houses will I have to show in EVERY price range that does not "fit the bill" because it does not have a whirlpool bath tub? The best part is that when I am back to list your home a few years later because you are ready to find a wonderful new home for your expanding family I will always ask you, "So, how often did you use the whirlpool tub" More often than not I get the sheepish look and then the confession that it was maybe used 5 times and that was in the first 6 months. So now (11 comments)
Kudos to everyone that commits to blogging on a regular basis. I am in awe. How do you do it? Where do you find the time? Where do you find the substance? How come you are all so smart? If someone has any great ideas on time management I am all ears. This is what happens when I take a quick break from my duties to catch up on blogging. This was our first introduction to Vegemite!

Born on Sept. 5, 1906, Dixon had 11 children who have produced about 100 children among them. Most of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were on hand for his barbecue party Monday.

I wonder if he remembers everyones' Birthday? What (0 comments)
I am a Maryland transplant from many other places, most recently Florida, but since 1997 I have found my true home in the heart of this great State. Maryland has it all. Mountains 3 hours to the West, the Atlantic Ocean 3 hours to the East and head North and South for either Philadelphia and New York or Washington DC. It is the perfect location! The Metro Baltimore area offers a rich mix of history and modern amenities. City living, suburbia or "not a neighbor in sight" is available in this area. Excellent Schools, amazing communities and an incredible location is why many people choose to live in Central Maryland. I proudly help my clients buy and sell all types of homes in Howard County and beyond. Enjoying the entire process is my goal for my clients. Every transaction is different and everyone has different needs. I know the Metro Baltimore area well and I am current on the Real Estate Market activity- That's my job.
As your "Buyers Agent" I will work diligently to find you the home that suits all your needs. I will update you immediately when a home matches your search criteria. I will educate you on the current market and help you craft the best offer possible. I will "hold your hand" throughout the entire process.
As your "Listing Agent" I will coach and guide you from day one to put your best foot forward when you list your home. I will use aggressive and innovative marketing strategies to give your home the best exposure possible. I will use modern technology and multiple resources that other agents do not use. I WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH PROOF OF ALL MY EFFORTS.
I am a full time agent and I my number one goal is to give you exceptional service ALWAYS.
