This exceptional property was a rare find! A custom home, built, occupied and loved by the same family for 4+ decades, on a flag lot and 4 private acres, with a wooded view, a 40 x 20 in-ground pool, oversized 4-season-sunroom to enjoy the lovely view year round, built-in garage, 2 fireplaces, owner's suite, rec room with walk-out to the pool area, low-maintenance deck... and so much more, attracted the perfect buyers who had spent months looking for a property just like it.They saw, the came, they fell in love, and they wrote the winning offer! As we are nearing the end of the complimentary seller rent-back period, the emotions are running high all around.

Speechless Sunday - Bring Your Dog to Work DayThis is puppy love, Sadie likes nothing better than to go for a ride in the car and make her rounds in and outside the Coldwell Banker office in Ellicott City.  She has her favorite spots to sit and watch the world go by.

Finally, yesterday we got a first glimpse of summer in Central Maryland after a pretty wet spring thus far. It was a gorgeous day! I had an appointment to meet with the appraiser at my listing in Dayton, MD which sits on a beautiful private lot and comes with a 20 x 40 in-ground pool. Per usual, I arrived a bit earlier to walk the property, turn on some lights, and make sure everything looked good. At the end of my tour I paused in the sunroom, taking in the view, before stepping out onto the deck. The sun felt amazing. There was a gentle breeze and I swear I could hear the pool whisper to come for a swim. Oh the temptation! Jumping into the water and working poolside for the rest of the day sounded just perfect to me. But, I didn't bring a bathing suit, I had a listing appointment to g...

DOK KHAO Thai Eatery is one of the restaurants that opened in the new Merriweather District in Columbia, MD within the last year. It joined Busboys & Poets, Peter Chang, Clove & Cardamom, The Creamery..We love trying new restaurants, especially the ones that have plenty on the menu for people like me, who are suffering from food allergies or sensitivities and/or are ever mindful of ingredients. DOK KHAO is already hugely popular, and buzzing with cheerful chatter during the evening hours.Stepping into DOK KHAO feels like stepping into Spring.. an experience that was especially pleasant on a chilly, chilly night. The interior is whimsical, vibrant, happy, and colorful with lots and lots of flowers. It's a restaurant that inspires and made me want to redecorate my home. It suits you, my f...

As a born & raised German, I am very particular about most things, but especially all things labeled German. The Rathskeller is a German restaurant in Howard County, MD, that opened its doors in the cellar of a historic building in October of 2019. Although the pandemic forced them to shut down for a brief period, they've managed to survive and thrive during these times. That tells you a lot! The Rathskeller is as authentic as it gets. Décor, food, adult beverages, and the outdoor Biergarten... all are hitting the spot for me. Yes, I know, you are probably thinking "hold on, Andrea, you don't eat meat!". You are correct. I haven't had meat since 1996. But The Rathskeller's got just the thing for vegans, too! An Aubergine Schnitzel (eggplant for you) which can be ordered breaded or grill...
