You have arrived at your destination. Home, finally!

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

It's been a long journey for my buyers, one that began approximately 15 years ago with the purchase of a home that was just meant to be a temporary one. Temporary turned into welcoming a puppy and a child to the family and raising both in the home, waiting out a recession and housing market recovery. 

They had always dreamt of a detached single family home large enough to host family reunions, with a big kitchen to be able to cook and bake together without bumping into each other, with room for a man cave, office and a craft room, too, a large, private backyard, and a big deck with a view of trees and not neighbors - a beautiful spot to sit, unwind and listen to the birds sing their songs. 

Last week, my buyers made their dream come true. After an intense search in a low inventory, competitive market, writing multiple offers, collecting multiple rejections, they have arrived at their destination: HOME, finally!  My clients are now proud owners of a split-level home in Sykesville, MD. We've enjoyed a first (but not last) celebratory drink on their new deck, and they are busy perfecting their dream. There's nothing temporary about this one!

Hello Andrea - whether it is real estate or real life, our journeys can include temporary route-changers that extend for many reasons.  Congratulations on your recent sale and on this nicely told story of it.

My story follows a very similar pattern, what was meant to be just a start became a long-term residence (that I am itching to move on from, too!). Thank you Michael!

It wasn't an easy road in this market, but I kept telling them to hang in there, the right house will work out! And work out it did. It was one of the happiest of closing days - almost makes you forget about the hurdles along the way. Thank you Joan!

Hi Andrea - I know the excitment since it is way my wife and I started and outgrew a condo at a time when interest rates were almost 20%.  That day came for us too and it was wonderful.  I am happy for your clients.

Thank you Grant! I find myself in that very boat, I've been wanting to move on for quite some time. But finding the time to get my house ready for the market is proving a challenge.. never mind that there are no homes for me to even look at.

At my semi annual dentist appointment the other day, I had a checkup with a dentist who is new to the practice. He is very experienced, new to the area, and semi retired. When I told him what I do, he looked at me with a very sweet calm voice and said, "Oh, you make dreams come true". I left on cloud 9. Yes, we do make dreams come true!
