Hey Bel Air Peeps, it's your girl Lanette, and guess what's causing a buzz in Charm City? Our beloved Ravens, led by none other than the one and only Lamar Jackson, are battling Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Playoffs this Sunday! And you better believe I'm all in, radiating that purple pride.Now, let's dive into the quarterback face-off. Lamar Jackson, aka in the Branch household as LaMarvelous, is leading the Ravens charge. Oh, how I love seeing him work his magic on the field. He runs. He passes. He passes, then he runs—to catch his own passes. Yeah, I know, I know, sounds kind of incredulous . . . But hold on – across the line is Patrick Mahomes, or as I like to call him, MyHomie. Because he was the MVP on my fantasy football league team, racking ...

Hey, Bel Air Crew! Lanette here, surviving the winter real estate hustle and bustle. This weekend's showing, though, was an adventure on a whole new level, and I've got to spill the snow – I mean, tea. Picture this: a property on a busy street, no street parking, and a driveway that looked like a snowman's haven—untouched by human hands or shovels. It was practically a winter wonderland, but not the good kind.It was Fresh as the New Fallen SnowAs I approached, my buyer had already taken the plunge and parked—or should I say nestled?—into the untouched snow. I don’t think you heard me. My buyer, brave soul that they are, was already parked—somewhere. But where exactly? Who knows? It could’ve been the driveway, but it if we’re talking possibilities here, it also could’ve been the front la...

Hey, Bel Air neighbors! It's your real estate aficionado, Lanette, here to spill the tea on a real estate trend that's more of a trick than a treat*: FSBO, or For Sale By Owner. Now, I like to call it "Foolish Seller's Bold Odyssey," but I digress.Going FSBO might seem like a money-saving move, but let me tell you, it's the epitome of being penny-wise and dollar-dumb. I say that because navigating real estate without a pro is like playing chess blindfolded against a Grandmaster—a not-so strategic move that just might leave you in checkmate. Just as a Sensei guides his Grasshopper in martial arts, a seasoned real estate professional mentors their sellers in the complex “game” of property transactions. Their expertise and insights provide the key moves needed to ensure successful outcomes...

Hey, Bel Air fam! Lanette here, diving into the world of cinematic brilliance with a twist of real estate musings. So, guess what recently graced a screen near me? Yep, the timeless classic, "The Color Purple." Now, let me spill the tea, add a splash of real estate wisdom, and stir in some Brown folk commentary – it's a Lanette special!First off, let’s talk about what I consider the most iconic quote from this movie. Y’all remember when Celie held up her hand, pointing to Mister, with curved index and middle fingers and said—as she was rolling out the door, after years of abuse—"Until you do right by me, everything you touch will crumble." Well, let me tell you, I remembered this quote a little differently. So, during our movie night, as I was yelling at the screen, I added a touch of L...

Hey, Bel Air crew!Lanette in the house, and today we're diving headfirst into the tech whirlwind that is Artificial Intelligence, "AI". Buckle up because we're about to demystify the secret sauce behind your streaming recommendations and apply that magic to our beloved world of real estate. *Now, I know AI might sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, but trust me, it's the not-so-secret maestro making things click and tick in the background. Just imagine, if you will, Netflix suggesting your next binge-worthy show—a boss move that makes you question if Netflix has been reading your mind. That, my friends, is AI working its magic. And guess what? It's not stopping at TV shows; it's flipping the script in the realm of real estate too.Now, stick with me here, imagine Bel Air with its ...

Hey, Bel Air Crew!Lanette here, spilling the tea on my recent triumph over the cable chaos. Drumroll, please... I officially broke up with Xfinity and hitched my wagon to YouTubeTV. Let me tell you, it's a game-changer that's not only saving me hundreds of dollars PER MONTH but also providing a front-row seat to the circus of life.Now, canceling Xfinity felt like liberation day. No more dancing around their outrageous fees, playing their customer service hopscotch, or enduring the endless buffering. It's like shedding a heavy coat of frustration and stepping into the light of streaming freedom.I know, I know, it sounds like one of those absurd car insurance commercials, but trust me, this decision was a real winner. And speaking of winners, let's address the elephant in the room, shall ...

Hey, beautiful souls!It's Lanette, your Realtor Bae, diving into the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its impact on our lives, especially in real estate. Let's chat about the pros and cons as I see them in my own journey, shall we?AI Unveiling Unique Beauty: In my own personal exploration, AI has become a powerful ally in crafting unique images that celebrate the beauty of brown people. For me, It's about more than just visuals. AI has been a tool for creating representation that resonates authentically. In this context, AI is the brush, and I'm the artist, painting a canvas of diversity and inclusion everywhere I go. Just call me Lynbrandt. And yes, I did just go there. I'd also love to hear if you've found ways to leverage AI creatively in your own life.Navigating Uncertain F...

Lights, Camera, Chocolate: Lanette's Take on New Movies, Ageless Oprah, and the Sweet Symphony of Destressing!Hey, Bel Air fam!Lanette here, spilling the tea on the silver screen wonders currently gracing our theaters. From the timeless allure of "The Color Purple" to the whimsical world of "Wonka," it's a cinematic feast. But let's talk real talk – does anyone above the age of 25 still venture to the theaters these days?I've got my eyes set on #TheColorPurple because, let's be honest, nothing beats the magic of the original – the one where Oprah was ON the screen, not just behind it as a producer. And speaking of Oprah, can we take a moment to appreciate that woman's reverse aging game? Maybe losing the equivalent of a whole person does wonders, but she's the real-life Benjamin Button,...

 Smooth closings don't just happen. They are created with teamwork involving knowledgeable, kind, caring people working towards the same goal. So fortunate in my career that I continue to have thethe privilege of meeting these professionals. This week, we closed on 315 Northlands Ct. Bulle Rock. The efficient buyer's agents, a mother-daughter team, made this process a delight.Maria and Linda  Every call was made and answered professionally and with respect. We worked entirely as a team. Things got done by working in-tandem. Just one tiny example: It was a VA loan, and we needed a fast termite inspection and report. Several delays with scheduling, and we pulled together our contacts. The seller, the buyer's agents, and I all made calls to seewho could get it done the fastest. No one said...

If I know anything, I know that every single day of the year is some kind of “National Day” of one type or the other. In fact, did you know that today was National Eat What You Want Day? Well, neither did I until I read Michelle Crowe-Carr’s post and then looked it up on the national day calendar.So, when I found out it was National Eat Want You Want Day, I also found out it was also: National Twilight Zone Day National Women’s Checkup Day And National Foam Rolling Day I'm not at all sure how one should celebrate any of these "days", but...you know what? Since it appears that anyone can declare a national day at the drop of a hat, I feel compelled to go ahead and add another one to the list. Today is also National Day After Mother’s Day Day. Woohoo.If you need some ideas on ways to cele...
