Real Estate Agent - RLAH Real Estate - AB95346



It's not unusual for any of us to be the second agent, getting the call after the sellers' first agent got fired - or fired himself.  Once, as a new agent, I found myself in the living room of a beautifully renovated house.   They had listed it for about four months with an agent with decades of ...
It seems like whatever budget my buyer clients bring me, I can always find them something wonderful.    It also seems like it's as easy to find a great house at $350,000 as it is to find one at $2 million. While I work with buyers across all price ranges, it's often the most fun to find a great h...
Yesterday, a colleague and I were checking out a favorite neighborhood in Prince George's County and met this fellow sitting in front of University Park Elementary School.  I brought the car to a screeching halt and pulled out my camers. "Well, Pat," she said.  "You never know when a crazy starr...
  Alan's right.  This stuff happens!  If you combine a good price and good condition (and sometimes you just need a good price), your buyers need to be prepared to come in with their best offer. If you have comments, please leave them for Alan.   The general consensus, out there in the dark scary...
On this summer's trip to the other Washington, some siblings and I set out to see a bit of the area.  My brother, who lives on Bainbridge Island, took us to lunch at a wonderful funky restaurant near the Dungeness Bay, and we passed Nash's Farm Store on our way.  I made him stop, not because we ...
When my sister, Joan, bought her current house in Arlington, we celebrated the event at a neighborhood favorite, The Lost Dog. Even with their recent expansion, there is usually a wait for a table, and it's well worth it. The first time we went for pizza, I was leery.  "Trust me," she said as she...
For anyone looking for a home close to everything that matters, Georgetown in a common choice.  Houses come in all shapes and sizes, and one never knows what is lurking behind the old historical facades. There are currently 70 single family homes, ranging in price from a highe of $11.5 million fo...
This is a bay window on a beautiful old turn-of-the-last century building in Cumberland, MD.  I loved the way the tiles formed funny lines on the roof.  And I loved the windows, with all of the little rounded panes.   The brick, I wasn't crazy about.  But I love the way it works against the brow...
Yesterday I got a call from one of my favorite clients.  He purchased a home about two years ago and had decided to refinance at a lower mortgage rate.   Before he signed the final papers this morning, he wanted to ask me a couple of questions. The first thing I asked him to do was to email me th...
I found this today in the side yard of a house I'm in he process of listing.  I've been walking past this rosebush for months with nothing happening.  Suddenly today I noticed four large, pink roses in full bloom.  In spring, I sort of take rose bushes for granted, but as fall gets closer, they ...
