Live Baltimore- An Evening to Remember

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc., Annapolis MD 21403 DRE# 319853

Now I do not even sell real estate in Baltimore but Margaret Rome was doing a book signing last night, her first since writing her first book Real Estate the Right Rome Way. But that was all I needed to head to the Live Baltimore event being held at the beautiful new Symphony Center apartment complex in downtown Baltimore. 

Margaret Rome

Live Baltimore is a non profit organization that promotes living in one of the many wonderful neighborhoods Baltimore has to offer. Not only do they promote Baltimore but they work with and help Buyers find the perfect neighborhood, loan package and home by partnering with Lenders, Realtors and state offered closing assistance programs. They even have neighborhood ambassadors they can contact that will help a buyer learn about their chosen neighborhood. I was quite intrigued with the concept of what Live Baltimore does for the Baltimore area and for Buyers.

I was especially delighted that Margaret Woda agreed to go along with me. Such a wonderful friend and colleague she is. And she, like me, was taken with the Live Baltimore concept. Our brains were churning as to how we both could incorporate even a little bit of what Live Baltimore does into our own areas of expertise.

Spending time with two of the nicest Margaret's around, hearing the chatter of people laughing, to learn and explore a new concept of promoting an area was the best thing I did for myself during a week that was a very sad week for me personally. 

By the way, I picked up Margaret Romes book and it is delightful. Its a great read for newbies and us ol' seasoned agents as well. And I finally understand what a Type E personality is really all about. Grab a copy, you won't be disappointed.

I had a great time, and I'm glad you got a chance to post this.  I, too, read a little of the book and look forward to finishing it.  Easy reading and lots of common sense.

Live Baltimore is an excellent organization. I often direct my buyers to their web site because all of the info that they have.

Martha, How wonderful to see the other Margaret and you Thursday evening. The event was well received and Live Baltimore got some well deserved publicity. The staff works so hard and gives so much good for the Baltimore City area.

 So glad you recognized and will be able to incorporate LB ideas into your area.  I was so pleased that you made the trip at this sad time in your life. You are a woman to be admired.

Hi Martha...I would have loved to make it a foursome.  What a treat to be with the three of you. 

I was going to purchase the book at Pat's recent gathering but I didn't make it and Margaret didn't either.
