There was a very informative article in today’s Washington Post regarding our flag. Over the years and especially since 9/11, homeowners, HOA’s and Condominium’s have been squaring off over where, when and how the colors may be displayed. Congress stepped in and in July 2005, President Bush sign...

Starting this Monday, if you have any clients who are planning to apply for a mortgage using a “Stated Income” or other limited-document approach, they had better be careful what income they post on the loan application. The IRS has recently overhauled a key income verification tool used by lend...

Radon Gas is everywhere. It becomes a problem only when it seeps into a home and collects into an un-disbursed concentration greater than 4.0 pCi/L for an extended period of time. The fix is usually fairly easy and typically cost $750-$1,000 (in our area) to install a monitor and fan-ejection sy...

My first time…. We have all had our adventures that have lead us to where we are currently in our real estate careers. If you don’t mind, I would like to offer some snapshots of things that happened along the way that ultimately led me to want to be on my own and, have an independent company. I ...
