We have had some amazingly beautiful weather here in Baltimore for the past few weeks. 70's-80's in MARCH! Sometimes we are digging out from major snowstorms here during this time period. We had a very mild winter, for which I am very grateful. I used to like the snow, but ever since we got those huge storms with 2 feet each within a week "Snowpocalypse," we called it, I no longer appreciate the stuff. Today, I have to laugh, because after these two weeks of wonderful weather, we have fog, rain, and it is chilly. (Even if the "chilly" is normal temperature for Baltimore!) In my mind, the verse, "Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down," started playing through my head. I began to laugh at myself because I really did appreciate those great days, and we need rain. So, remind me to appre...

About a year ago, I decided I needed to post more here on ActiveRain, because I learn so much from others on here. I enjoy reading others' blogs -- I get some great ideas, learn something new about different laws in other states, and read what some amazing professionals do in their daily lives. I made a commitment, though, years ago, to blog as much as possible on my own site, realtormarney.com. There I blog about Towson real estate, Timonium real estate, the local Baltimore market, plus activities and a lot of other information. That dedication has been very helpful to me, and opened opportunities to blog elsewhere. I am a blogger for the Towson Patch and NewHomesDirectory.com! The true thing the dedication has gotten me has been a wonderful amount of business through referrals or peop...

Even though it is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, I had signed up for a workshop at the Apple Store in Towson. With all the reports of heavy traffic and accidents etc..I thought a 5:00 class is not the best idea. But it was already on my schedule and I kept the appointment. And am I glad!! The entire workshop consisted of me and Shae and we had so much fun. One question after another I fired at Shae and she was answering them. How do you make ® on the iPad? ..can't. You have to copy and save and then paste it. Someone tell my why? In between my questions, Shae continued to give me pointers and show useful and fun things on the iPad. While there Lindsay, who helped me a couple of weeks ago was in the store with her adorable daughter. I asked permission to take her picture and she pose...

Wordless Wednesday ~ Picture Perfect! Baltimore County, MarylandAny day is a good day for a home inspection, this one was exquisite! The temperature was a about 65, headed for 70. The squires were busy preparing for the long cold winter weather ahead. The air was filled with the amazing fragrance of fur trees and the sounds of people working hard to clear their roofs of leaves and limbs that will surely choke those gutters and cause big problems in the months ahead.

Razorbacks Hit The Spot After a Busy HomeRome Week!It has been a long and wonderfully busy week. With a showing this morning, a 12:00 walk-through, a smooth 2:00 settlement, and a near closing that took over four hours of negotiating at the table, I guess you can say this is a long day and the end of another week. The time was now  8:30 PM... time for dinner because there was no lunch. So I invited my sellers to stop and have a bite. I did the inviting...they picked up the check before I had the chance.This is such a nice way to bring a 'close' to closing. We all enjoy breaking bread with friends and good conversation.  This is also a perfect time to tie up loose ends, acknowledge appreciation for each other, answer questions and just overall "wrap it up".We found a place, new to me, in...

My Very First Apple Product...Thanks to Erica Rome! Last week my daughter asked what I wanted for my birthday. She knows I never want anything and am not easy to buy for. I love her phone calls, visits, special cards and notes. Gifts for occasions are not the important things with our family. Thursday night Erica picked me up, introduced  me to the Apple Store in the Towsontown Mall with lots of shops and restaurants .  Erica took charge, signed me up and we left with a brand new iPad...My Very First Apple Product. The store was crowded but our consultant took plenty of time answering my questions.                                                              Erica loves the Mac and everything about Apple. My first cousin, Arnold Reinhold, authored Switching to a Mac for Dummies.  Whenev...

Towson, MD 21286 Market Trends Report   8/6/11 My independent MRIS research shows that 4% of the current active residential inventory in the 21286 zip code is distressed (short sale or bank owned).    There are currently 94 active listings on the market.  Most of these properties are overpriced or are in less than ideal condition that do not attract buyers and just sit on the market. The average day’s on the market for these active properties is 139.  There are currently 25 properties under-contract. These buyers have found and are expecting and getting a great value-a good property at a good price and with all the competition for their attention, they have a lot of choices.    There were 24 listings that expired or were withdrawn from the market in the last 60-days. The average day’s ...

Kathmandu Kitchen in Towson, MD One of the first restaurants I visited when we moved to Lutherville almost 6 years ago was Kathmandu Kitchen.  I love ethnic foods and had been looking for a great asian restaurant.  One day I found a flyer in the Val-Pak and decided to try it during lunch and have been hooked ever since.  My Broker, Dottie Cordwell, and I went to see Alex Charfen at his Race for Success Tour this morning and decided to have lunch afterwards and went to Kathmandu Kitchen.  Kathmandu Kitchen is located in Towson at 22 W. Allegheny Ave.  There is parking in several "Pay and Display" lots across the street and limited parking along this section of Allegheny.  On nice days there is limited outside seating and plenty of elegant seating inside the restaurant.  Kathmandu serves ...

What School Will My Child Go to in Baltimore County? This is a frequently asked question. One of the criteria for finding a home is the school system. In Baltimore County we have an easy look up system. Just go to www.BCPS.org. You type in the address of the home and you get the Elementary, Middle and High School. To double check the accurateness..call the Boundary Information Line at 410-887-4215. I picked up the keys to my new HomeRome listing in Dulaney Towers this evening!!                      When putting my properties  in the Multiple Listing System, more commonly called the MLS, I like to put in the schools. Now this is not written in stone so I caution you to always double check the school information ....boundary lines do change. When I typed in 17 Bellows Ct. 21204..here are ...

Yesterday, I went on a listing appointment and  posted about  A Delightful Letter Carrier ..Named Jim.  The seller was only 98.5% sure  she wanted to use me. Remember, I ask two questions on a listing appointment. -First question: Are You 100% Sure  you want to sell? -Second question- Are you 100% sure you want to use me?     This home owner would not make decision without sleeping on it. This morning, as promised, a call  was received leaving the following message:   " Hi Margaret Rome...The other 1 and 1/2 percent is all taken care of ..I slept on it...I believe in you...go for it!  We will  go on this journey together to sell 17 Bellows Ct. 21204   The seller is 100% Sure...Another HomeRome listing.                                                      This interior brick and siding t...

A Delightful Mailman...I Mean Letter Carrier..Named Jim.  Today on a listing appointment, I had the pleasure of meeting Jim Christopher who is the letter carrier for 17 Bellows Ct.  Dulaney Towers. That's the PC word...remember when they were called mailmen? Even Jim's uniform makes that clear.                       Jim was a delight and really enjoys what he does...working for the US Postal Service. Jim knows the neighborhood. He knows when someone is moving and he sometimes knows when someone is looking to buy. I asked permission to take his picture and by that smile, you know the answer.  As I was leaving the potential listing with the seller..we found out an interesting fact about the property. The present owner bought this home 30 years ago from a former Colt Football Player #44. A...

Maryland: Internship Opportunities We hear all too often of college graduates finishing a rigorous degree program but then having trouble finding employment, especially in a down economy like that of recent times. One method of addressing this concern is with internships. With an internship, the student can gain valuable experience, learn what employers truly need, and can structure their courses accordingly. At the same time, employers can be grooming their new talent for their future expansion plans such that it is a smooth transition from college to the workforce with a minimum of training time. The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) has created a user-friendly website for both employers to showcase internship opportunities with their companies as well as for students to rev...
