I am also flexible to show my properties, answer my phone, email and text. It takes some planning to be spur of the moment...

     Garages are good selling features in Baltimore. Even though the garage is not true living space, it can and does add value...especially if there is actually room for your cars.

  Today I went by one of my newly signed listings to see how things were going. They were just a bit beyond exhausted from cleaning, packing and basically purging years of their parent's home.

Please make sure they are either neat, empty or even staged.  I have some sellers who want to take all the stuff and put it in the garage!  This is their quick way of getting the house ready for the photographer.  NO NO NO!!!...

  When showing properties, depending on the potential clients, I sometimes  call the closets 'Hers and Hers'. It is usually funny until one says he has more clothes.   Then I say; ' Okay they are now 'His' and 'His'. There is always a smile especially when someone hears this a first time. Our adv...

 Just because a person has a MD,CPA,ESQ or REALTOR® after their name does not make them the best Professional.

  There was a great explanation on how to get referrals written by Kathy Streib.Take a few minutes to read that post along with the comments.
