activerain contest: January Challenge -Giving Kudos - 12/26/18 07:54 PM
JANUARY CHALLENGE - Give Kudos to Start the New Year Off on a Positive Note
 
How can we make the Real Estate business better?
How can we highlight and show appreciation for the best of the best? 
 
It so easy to say something negative or point out flaws about MLS remarks, bad photos, inaccurate information, mistakes, poor communication, and the list goes on.
 
How can we help the other professionals in our area?
 
Nothing is better than being complimented by one of your team members.
 Just think of the impact we could have by noticing when another agent or vendor or stager or lender or title attorney or … (189 comments)

activerain contest: Reviews The Rome Way - 08/02/18 07:03 PM
 
Whenever anyone asks what to do to thank me for a smooth transaction, my answer: put it in writing.
But I don't ask for reviews. Last year I got a poor review. It was not even from a buyer or seller. It was from a caller I never met.  They contacted me numerous times about a specific property,  asking personal questions about the seller's situation making many inquires but not willing to answer any questions about who they were or the reason for the types of questions. This person had no agent and never asked to see the property.
I responded to … (15 comments)

activerain contest: Full Service The Rome Way - 09/01/17 04:35 PM
 
 
Here is my definition of "Full Service" The Rome way.
 Part I of Tony & Suzanne Marriott's September Challenge
 
To start with, I limit the amount of listings that I choose to take, including those under contract. I have had one of my busiest times with multiple recent closings so that new listings had to be on hold.
They are on my waiting list.
With all my recent closings...inventory is low with quite a few properties going active in the next month. I am taking a bit of a breather right now.
This is how I am able to make each of my clients feel they are the only ones I'm … (9 comments)

activerain contest: Summer Colors In Baltimore - 08/15/17 04:47 PM
 
 
There is an August challenge hosted by Belinda Spillman   "Summer is a very special time for many.  For those of us who live in states with 4 defined seasons, the sight of beautiful blooms and crops is a huge treat.  Fall and winter comes way too early....and everything turns brown again until the first leaves of Spring.'
 
 
 
If it were spring in Baltimore, I could easily share the azaleas, black-eyed Susans, tulips and cherry blossoms.
 
 
Right now, in August, the lawns, shrubs and trees are thick, lush and very green.
 
 
 
 
 
I have looked at my yard and my listings and all I see is green. Very few flowers with … (12 comments)

activerain contest: Find Your Wish With The HomeRome Niche - 04/01/17 01:18 PM
How do you explain a Niche?
 
As many of you know, I specialize in unique, unusual  and even hard to sell real estate. These properties are certainly not for the average buyer and it takes a while to find the right buyer for these homes that are a far cry from "cookie cutter'. 
 
I have been in touch with the seller of one of
my favorite contemporary homes 
and today on Facebook, this former owner posted this photo of her house...note the date April 3, 2010...that was seven years ago. 
 
 
 
At present, I am featuring  a mid century modern contemporary, a Deck House, an 1812 farm … (22 comments)

activerain contest: Dottie's Pretty Party - 12/14/16 09:06 PM
 
Each and every month a group of girls  get together for dinner, conversation, sharing, catching up and laughter.  We have known each other for over thirty years.
It happened a long time ago  when we met through NAWBO...National Association of Women Business Owners.
What started as wonderful and talented business owners, looking  to  support each other, evolved into a caring group of  amazing friendships.
Tonight it was Dottie's turn to host and I now  understand  that saying 'hostest with the mostest'.  Dottie's  home was festive, elegant, warm, welcoming and oh so beautiful ! Everyone was relaxed and made to feel so special.

activerain contest: Social Media The Rome Way - 07/07/16 10:35 AM
 
 Many years ago I wrote a blog post on ActiveRain about a special
Open House
I was looking for a way to get traffic to one my listings.
The blog  describing that event was picked up by the
Washington Post.. Read here.
 
 
From The Washington Post article 
Realtor® Magazine invited me to be the Open House Master. 
 
We tagged on the first ActiveRain Open House at the same time.
Social media marketing The Rome Way.
 
'Social media is one of the most powerful tools you can utilize to market your business. In fact, with 90% of home searches beginning online I’d say having an online presence is absolutely essential if you … (12 comments)

activerain contest: 100 Days Plus..The Rome Way - 04/30/16 12:47 PM
Thank you Bob Crane  (I think) for April's challenge. And thanks for the reminder.
Tonight's post was already written and in draft form but.. uh oh..it is April 30th... the last day of this contest. Bob has asked us to write a post this month talking about how we have done in the first 100 days.
 
To sum up this first quarter...wonderfully busy describes my real estate.
 
And...
when opportunity knocks... I do not complain about the noise.
I am almost exclusively a listing agent but the beginning of this year has brought a number of buyers, all were friends, past clients or referrals.
Thank you Margaret Woda  who I affectionately … (24 comments)
