 Today we had a smooth closing for very special first time home buyers. It was because of ActiveRain that I met Winnie and Joseph.    A couple of month's ago, John Meussner  asked me take on these qualified buyers. I was sure he knew them personally and only after our home inspection, did I find out it was through blogging that they connected. John writes some wonderful information about mortgages and Joseph, following his blog, decided to call him. Joseph asked if he knew of an agent in Baltimore, where he and Winnie had just been offered jobs. That's where I came in. I'm in Maryland, John is in California and Winnie and Joseph were in Rochester, New York. And we all came together because of ActiveRain.Not only did they buy the perfect home...who says there is no such thing?I have foun...

 It seems that everyone I speak with is saying these words. If you are in real estate and NOT busy, at the end of June, I would worry. The problem is these words are an excuse. Things are not getting done because " everyone is so busy." As a consumer, this is not what you want to hear.  You want to feel special, that time is being made for you.I like to use the term "wonderfully busy" but never TOO BUSY. This past week I had a home inspection with Joe Brandli. I know he is busy...he is guaranteeing next day inspections. When Joe came to the property he made everyone feel important. He took time to greet the buyers,  taking their picture in front of  the new house. He brought along a color fan and a big tape measure for the  buyers to use. Nice touch, Joe.  This was done in addition to g...

 I have been fortunate to work with clients that I like and respect. As most of you know, I love this whirlwind life of real estate. I love the challenges of unique properties and I love getting things done.I am a listing agent but occasionally will get a request (from a friend or colleague) to take on special  buyers like Winnie and Joseph. In town only for a few days, we needed to find a home for the end of July. We saw the house Monday night, wrote a winning  offer and had the home inspection this morning. Mission accomplished This is the beautiful note received today after our home inspection.

It is very late, well actually it's very early...almost 2 AM  and these first time home buyers submitted an offer at midnight.  I will blame this on AR because John Meussner asked me to help this couple. Our plan... buy a home in the next two days.We made appointments to see four houses this evening.  We only saw one, it felt like the right home.  Running a bit late, we met the sellers and played with their adorable baby. Instead of keeping the other appointments, we stopped for a quick dinner to discuss writing an offer. Spoke with listing agent who already has an offer but was willing to give us a chance to submit. My promise was to get it to her prior to midnight. Spoke with John Meussner who emailed me an updated approval letter. Contract offer was written, reviewed, signed and subm...

 Went to settlement two weeks ago with a very special family after selling this wonderfully unique property.   Below is the note I received after our dinner this past weekend. "Sadly, the time had come for me and my sister to sell the house where we had shared a deep rooted bond with our parents. This was more than a piece of real estate-it was our home-our sanctuary-a special dwelling filled with much love and countless happy memories. Our parents were so proud of this house their long awaited Shangri-la, designed and built especially for them. This wooded property with with its songs of nature, brought them many smiles.My sister and I began our search for that person who would guide us through this real  estate journey. After several exhausting and disappointing experiences we were in...

 What an enjoyable hour on Sunday when my recent seller came on as guest to discuss some of the details of listing and selling a property.   We talked about how we met and his experience with a former listing agent. We talked about the feedback from all the showing appointments. We talked about three different home inspectors with findings from a good sound home  to another inspector on the same property calling almost everything "marginal" including the new roof, new appliances, new oil tank, new radon system and new septic system. This was done in a 94 page home inspection. Four calls came in ...3 were from practicing home inspectors and  continued after the show and into Monday. It was a lively discussion. It was a pleasure having a client talk about the transaction from the listing,...

 This past week we had a wonderful smooth closing with a delightful and professional buyer's agent, Carol Fertitta with Berkshire Hathaway Homesale Realty.   Carol Fertitta, Rebekah and Luke I loved representing this seller and her special home, of 15 years, located at 12310 Bonita Ave. We found the perfect buyers. Just look at those smiles! Remember this letter written by my seller and then the letter that came with the offer.      Can you tell I love being in Real Estate?
