andrea bedard realtor: ... with much love and gratitude, Merry Christmas! - 12/24/18 06:21 PM
It's finally here, the grand finale of weeks of preparing, shopping, baking, wrapping, and spreading Holiday cheer. I am almost ready, just a couple more presents to wrap and stockings to stuff. I cannot wait for all the smiles and giggles and joy and hugs and ... tomorrow!
I am about to share a bottle of wine with my parents, and snuggles with my children and I hope you are or will be surrounded by the people most important in your life, too! 
... with much love and gratitude and a simple wish for many blessings, today, tomorrow, and always. Merry Christmas! 

andrea bedard realtor: Throwback Thursday: Time Flies. It's True. - 06/16/16 10:45 AM

What she's holding is a traditional German Zuckertüte (sugar cone) filled with treats and little gifts. I remember my mom bringing it with her that summer. I remember myself wrapping the gifts and filling it … (8 comments)

andrea bedard realtor: We had to sell it twice but we got it done. 5206 Devonport SOLD! - 09/08/15 09:58 AM
4 months, 6 offers, 2 contracts .. we had to sell it twice but we got it done.
5206 Devonport Ct in the Glenshire Estates subdivision of Glenn Dale, MD is SOLD - $11,000 over asking!
When we put 5206 Devonport Ct on the market at the end of April, I was confident that we would get it sold quickly. The Colonial sits on a pretty cul-de-sac, there is very little turn-over in the subdivision and the seller had done a fantastic job preparing the home. It didn't take long for us to receive 3 offers and under contract we went. 
But anything … (9 comments)

"this house is nice but too bad it's on a busy street"
"they should have spruced up their yard before putting it on the market for sale"
"I don't like that kitchen, it looks old"
"maybe they should have hired a stager"
