                                                   We live on the inside of homes but what we see from each room can be a real joy. My seller took this video after  I mentioned how much I loved  watching the birds  while showing this contemporary home. This home brings tranquility and a feeling of being on vacation, taking time to slow down...to take note of the beautiful nature that is all around. I love it when my sellers share information on their special homes. It make for a strong partnership and helps  get the best description out to the public. I am so fortunate to work with such outstanding owners.   Please click on the photo below to watch the owner's video.   3738 Bixler Church Road wild birds in the backyard Peaceful video of a few backyard birds at 3738 Bixler Church Road, W...

A post earlier today got me thinking about how I market my listings. It was Barb Szabo who asked "Do you blog your listings and your sales?" I made this comment in return. Yes, I blog my listings..The Main Reason to Blog...Get My Listings SOLD!  I blog the home, the area, the college, the airport, the restaurants, the kitty cats, the Olympic  Paint  can  and  even the kitchen sink!                                                                                                                      Did you know this was a former ostrich farm?                                               Do your listings have floor plans? Check out 3738 Bixler Church Rd 21158 in Westminster, MD. Below I have linked a few articles written about this unique contemporary home. When I "googled" the address th...

I am in Westminster, Maryland and it is July 2010, the temperatures are soaring into the high 90's with feel like temperatures in the 100's.  I am showing homes to buyers that I am working with and I am shocked to find homes WITHOUT their air conditioning on!!  WHAT!!! (p.s. do you know what I look like after an hour in 100 degree weather :0 - scary!) Realtors please ask your sellers to make sure they have their air conditioning on during this extreme heat.  Buyers will stay longer and think more about purchasing your home if they are comfortable in your home.

 I always think of 3738 Bixler Church Road as a place for a year round vacation in Westminster, MD. This cantilevered contemporary on 28 acres is one of my favorite listings. With 5,000 square feet of sun-drenched space, this unusual home is definitely not a "cloneonial." Picture multiple balconies, two fireplaces, wood floors, and way too many windows to count. Set in lush woods, the change from season to season is wonderful. My earlier photos were in the magnificent snow, and on a showing yesterday I was amazed at how green the land had grown in such a short time.That window seat with the new cushion is my very favorite space to sit!  My other favorite place is in the kitchen but you have to go read the other post to see what I mean.   The views from each and every room of this cantil...

Plum Crazy Diner..and a Home for Sale  in Westminster, Md. 21158 Plum Crazy Diner in Westminster, Md. is…colorful and tasty...with a side of Twin Kiss ice cream! I love the name of this neat little place, and the atmosphere is like a 1950's diner with lots of lights and a genuine Wurlitzer juke box up front. Right next door there is Twin Kiss ice cream...so save room for soft serve ice cream.  Twin Kiss has been on Route 140 for half a century, and the tradition continues today. I discovered  Plum Crazy Diner, thanks to my new listing 3738 Bixler Church Rd, Westminster, Maryland 21158 Cantilevered Contemporary on 28 Acres  in Westminster.

   3738 Bixler Church Rd  21158   This exciting, Frank Lloyd Wright inspired, contemporary on a magnificent wooded 25 acre lot is not your cookie cutter 'clone-onial'.             This Bixler Church home will make you feel as if you are on vacation year round. Built of white cedar and glass, the changing views from season to season are absolutely spectacular. The 3500' of finished space makes fabulous use of three floors. A gourmet kitchen with walnut center island, granite counters, decks for dining alfresco or watching the birds as you sip your morning coffee.         The soaring sitting room has over-sized windows and a cantilevered seating space that is like being in a tree house.             There are decks to watch the sunrises, the sunsets and the changing seasons.   Two well se...

December 5, 2007 - The first snow of the season has arrived upon us!  The weather forecasted 1-2 inches but in Westminster Maryland we are up to almost 6 inches and it is still snowing!  The children got out of school two hours early and they are hoping that they will have off tommorrow too.  Looking up and down the streets homes have their holiday lights shining bright and they are twinkling in the snow, it is really beginning to look the holiday season!While snow days can be a lot of fun for most people it can also present dangers too.  Please take care when driving...keep plenty of distance from other cars and take your time.  Stay clear of the snow plows.  If you can stay home by the fireplace and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with your family.Cynthia Grimes, Associate BrokerRe/Max A...

Recently the City of Westminster held it's Annual Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting Celebration.  I'm a member of the City Council and thought it would be interesting just to listen while folks in the crowd surrounding the tree were waiting for Santa to arrive.This event, much like the Fallfest is taking off with a great response.  I guess because local residence feel like they are part of a small town community. As I listened to folks in the crowd talking, they were saying, "this was a great evening of celebration", "the kids are loving the excitement of seeing Santa", "Westminster knows how to bring people together".Hearing the many comments, made me proud of being involved in the community.  I was born and raised in this town 50 years ago.  I still remember the sidewalks piled full of...
