So, I went to a settlement in NW D.C. My wonderful client purchased a condo and she and her parents presented me with a box of gourmet cookies from Japan and a bag of gourmet cookies from Cookie Pie. Yum. Well, not exactly. Here's what the box and bag looked like within a few hours! There's only one lonely cookie left in the box. I wish I could tell you that I have a large family, but I'm an honest real estate broker!

 Relocation is often stressful and time-consuming, but rarely do we wonder about the impact the process has on the environment. This is amplified when moving to a smaller house or condominium, and additional decisions have to be made regarding items that must discarded in order to save space.  If we don’t make these decisions deliberately, our choices can generate a lot of trash, and waste energy and natural resources. Fortunately, we have other options so that, when the time comes, we can relocate — along with our stuff — responsibly. Some measures to consider before moving day: Buy less. The less you accumulate, the less you will have to discard when it comes time to relocate. Also, fight the urge to be a pack rat by recycling and giving items away as they become obsolete to you. If y...

Just another form of NEW WORLD ORDER ... Come on people, who's really buying into this Corona Virus garbage?Looks like too many people! People that are so caught up in the news, social media, etc.Get grip & all this is another form of NEW WORLD ORDER from governments across the world. The New World Order or NWO is claimed to be an emerging clandestine totalitarian world government by various conspiracy theories. The common theme in conspiracy theories about a New World Order is that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government—which will replace sovereign nation-states—and an all-encompassing propaganda whose ideology hails the establishment of the New World Order as the culmination of history's prog...

I represent foreign nationals and non-resident aliens in Washington DC, and the greater DMV area  who have IRS or State tax issues. In Part 1 of this article, I discussed how foreign nationals living abroad or in the U.S. can navigate the tax environment at the time of buying (or converting existing property into) U.S. rental real property.  I also mentioned that that there will be a 30% tax on foreign national and non-resident alien gross rental income without the benefit of deducting allowable expenses that U.S. citizens can normally use to lower their taxable income. However, I am going to summarize for you some broadly unknown provisions that can provide tax relief to foreign and non-resident rental property owners. Depending on your personal situation, you can be taxed at a lower r...

I represent foreign nationals and non-resident aliens in Washington DC, and the greater DMV area who have IRS or State tax issues. According to 2018 data from the National Association of Realtors, foreign and non-resident buyers accounted for 8% ($121 billion) of U.S. home sales. Given that most realtors and affiliated industry professionals spend their time and mental space serving the domestic 92%, finding tailored advice for foreign nationals and non-residents who want to buy (or convert existing property into) U.S. rental real property can be a challenge. In this article I want to clarify some confusing aspects of U.S. rental real estate ownership that foreign-born buyers face. Specifically, those people include: Foreign nationals living overseas. Foreign nationals living in the U.S...

Wordless Wednesday: Kramerbooks and Afterwords Cafe  I was in the nation's capital last week for the mid-year CRS meetings as part of the NAR meetings, at the Hilton right up the street from Dupont Circle. As I do every visit during these annual jaunts (since 2006) in May I walked by an old (and I do mean OLD) haunt, the iconic Kramerbooks  and Afterwords Cafe on Connecticut Avenue just up from the actual circle. I didn't dine there this trip but have in the past - it's changed quite a bit as far as the cafe from the early years.  Kramers, as it's often fondly called, was established in 1976, the first DC bookstore/cafe, and is known far and wide. It always brings back very fond memories to see it even if I don't step inside - I worked there as a bartender and server in the summer of 19...

When I saw the "Update Your Profile Challenge" posted by Paul Henderson, I knew it was just the motivation I needed to start the picture update that I know I, like many agents, need to do. We all know those agents who seem to be using a picture that was clearly taken decades ago. None of us wants to be that agent.So here goes...Before:  And After:    The Why it so hard to get a new photo? When I was doing a website overhaul, my graphic designer recommended we get a professional photographer to come and take pictures. I opened it up to other agents in my office, we had a makeup artist join us as well and we did a day long photo shoot. He took one photo of me and said he had it. I worried terribly that I may have blinked or smiled oddly, but he said he was sure. When we received the photo...
