|web Vinny Goldsmith an Anne Arundel County Realtor|
With a background in advertising and marketing I have the necessary information and knowledge to cast the widest net possible. Whether you are looking for a home to buy, or you want as many potential buyers as possible to look at your home - I can make it happen.
I won't take a listing or show a house if I don't think I can add value to the process. I consider home ownership one of the greatest things an adult can undertake and I am especially mindful of making sure first time home buyers feel comfortable in the process.
The areas where I feel the most value are the specific neighborhoods where I have worked hard to build a knowledge base.
I'm also very knowledgeable about the following areas in Maryland:
Crofton, Lothian, North Beach, Owings, Deale, Galesville, Severna Park, Crownsville, Davidsonville, Edgewater, Rive, Annapolis, and Shady Side.
I grew up in Southern Maryland so I keep my hands in a few deals down there. Most notably I own and manage rental houses in Lusby and Waldorf.
At heart though I am still just an Anne Arundel County Real Estate Agent
