Today was Happy Closing Day for another of my First Time Maryland Home Buyer-couples. It's always an honor to be part of such an exciting experience! My buyers are now proud owners of a 1907 Victorian in historic Mount Rainier, MD

Historic Mount Rainier (has been rumored to be(come) the new Takoma Park) is home to a thriving arts community, The Gateway Arts Districts. What better way to surprise my buyers than with art by a local artist?

Art by Jill-Ann Stolley, The Lavender Whim

I commissioned The Lavender Whim, owned by Ellicott City artist Jill-Ann, to paint my buyer's new home with water colors. The end result was another beautiful closing gift!

No matter where life will lead my buyers, they will always have a beautiful memory of their very first home!

Congratulations John & Rachel! Welcome Home!

Happy First Time Maryland Home Buyers
