My favorite color is fall. I just love everything about the season, the fragrances, the sweater weather, and my favorite trails painted in all shades of yellow, orange and reds, glowing in the autumn sun. Leaf peeping is probably my top fall activity, making apple and pumpkin picking a close seco...
3820 Thoroughbred Lane is as charming of a home as it gets! The original farmhouse was built in 1810 with parts dating back to 1736... notice the half-timbered wall in the kitchen? It's reminiscent of old German architecture and not a detail you'll find in any modern clononial. Two 3-story additi...
Busboys & Poets just opened their newest location in the Merriweather District in Columbia, MD, perfectly timed with my birthday 😉 Thank you kindly! It's been years since I stopped by the one in Hyattsville always hoping that they'll open one up in Howard County, closer to home & office. I just l...
Is now a good time to buy? is one of the most frequently asked questions I hear from clients and customers, neighbors, at social get-togethers, at the gym or from strangers who can't resist giving my assistant Lennon some attention while we are out running the trails. My answer since 2004 has bee...

My buyer had been looking for a few months and was getting quite discouraged by the scarce inventory and bidding wars on the few good options, when we came across an end unit townhome...
It is a glorious day to celebrate Oktoberfest! If you missed last weekend (I didn't, since I totally earned a couple of beer by participating in Ride of a Life Time), then you get another chance! The Oktoberfest celebration at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore (well, technically, it's o...
Mission accomplished. Goal crushed. Heart & mind happy (body... well, that's a different story). On Saturday I participated in a Ride of a Life Time at my local Life Time Fitness in Columbia, MD. I had signed up as a challenge rider, agreeing to ride all  four cycling classes offered that day and...
Challenge accepted. In 2011 Mike Cooper, Broker VA,WV, MD and I cycled for a few hours to save the tatas. This Spinning marathon was not only a lot of fun but also a very successful fundraiser for the Susan B. Komen foundation. In my prior life I was a certified Spinning® instructor and although ...
5782 Main Street in Elkridge, MD is technically not a home, but it IS incredibly charming. I simply must include it in my series of Charming Homes of the Week for several reasons. Elkridge, MD is a town in Howard County that has often been forgotten while county resources were poured into its pro...
