This blog is about the Maryland Real Estate Market and other things that I love to do and write about.



     As I leave the office today for a 5 day retreat, I wanted to reflect on this holiday.  I will return to my house today and start the baking of cookies & pies.  Later tonight I will start mixing the stuffing for the turkey. I will set my alarm for O dark thirty in the am to put the turkey in ...
This tells it like it is.  I am certainly going to use this when I have an unrealistic seller on the fence about listing at an approproiate price. THE GLUT OF OVERPRICED LISTINGS IN MANY MARKETS IS A NIGHTMARE FOR BUYERS, SELLERS, AGENTS and LOAN OFFICERS.  That said, there's nothing new in the p...
         Is this a good time of year to sell or buy?  Well, I for one love the buyers during this time of the year.  You know that when they are looking at homes during the holiday season, they are serious.  At least this has been my experience!  As far as selling, I'm not so sure.  Most people t...

I would like to just take a minute of everybody's time to reflect on Veteran's Day.  Some people see this as a day off from work, no mail, no trash pick up, etc.  In my area, schools are still opened and most of us are at work, except government workers.  So here I am at the office trying to reac...
     Daylight Savings time versus Standard Time!!!  To change or not to change, that is the question???  OK, there is much ado about this time change.  I, for one, do not like it getting dark before 5pm in the evening.  I suffer from the blues pretty quickly in the winter months if I do not keep ...
We attended The Severna Park Chamber Of Commerce Holiday Trade Fair yesterday evening.  I have never been part of this before and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  Here is Dave & Cheri McCollough (my broker & his wife)  in front of our booth.                There were many business...

     Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all go paperless!  Just imagine all the trees that we would save.  I have written before about how I am going paperless, but most of this business still hasn't allowed it.  Unfortunately, even though I bought a tablet computer, joined docusign, have a gre...
I'm not really sure just what to blog about.  I joined AR because it is very informative, but I find myself trying a bit too hard.  I have never been much on writing.  Sure I can talk your ear off, but write it down....not me.  I am a Real Estate Agent and considered very friendly and outgoing in...
