Happy Closing Day!JUST SOLD in the Marble Hill community of Elkridge, MD: 6346 Ducketts LnMarble Hill is a townhouse-style condominium subdivision right off Route 1 in Elkridge, MD. It feeds into the Ducketts Lane Elementary School district which first welcomed students for the 2013/2014 school year and is located right across the street from the community. It's also part of the Thomas Viaduct Middle School district which is another new school in Howard County... both are among the reasons why Marble Hill has risen in popularity. Another one are the low monthly dues. Although classified as a condominium, owners are required to maintain their limited common elements as well as the exterior of their units. It's unusual but it keeps monthly dues on the low end. 6346 Ducketts Ln is a 3 bedr...

Looking for a open house in Elkridge, Maryland 21075,  this weekend?There are fourteen open houses in Elkridge 21075 this weekend.Looking for a single family home? Condo or townhome?  BEWARE!! During an open house if you do not have a real estate agent representing you, the realtor who is hosting the open house is representing the seller. Many people are unaware of the fiduciary duties of a real estate agent and assume that agents who shows them houses represent them. Not necessarily. If you have not signed an agency agreement that designates you as an agent's client, rather than his customer, the agent is acting as a fiduciary agent of the seller. Fiduciary duties are legal obligations to the client, not the customer. As your Buyer Agent my fiduciary duty is to you, the Buyer. This rel...

As I was driving back from Ocean City, MD last week, my car made a strange noise. I know a lot about houses but very little about cars ... just enough to know that my car wasn't supposed to make a noise like that. I - very carefully - made it home that night and called "my" mechanic the very next day. Isn't it nice to have a car repair shop you are so comfortable with that you can refer to them as "my" car repair shop? While it was annoying to have to deal with a car issue (have buyers and listings = need car), I knew that I didn't have to worry about it, API Auto Service would take care of it. API squeezed me in the very next day - with a noise like that it was best not to drive around - did their assessment quickly, told me exactly what to expect, provided a courtesy ride home (and pi...

Yesterday was one of those days. You know the one. When you try to cramp a week's worth of appointments and errands into one day. When you go non-stop for 12 hours and forget to eat. When you hit every red light and get stuck in the worst traffic. When said traffic causes you to be late for a showing. When your phone suddenly shuts down and nothing can bring it back alive. When you race to pick up your kids from summer camp before they close and you feel bad that they'll be the last ones there. Somehow though, you manage. You breathe through it all (nothing one can do getting stuck in the worst traffic but to meditate) and still answer your phone with a smile. And when you are finally on your way home (kids successfully picked up with one minute to spare) you realize that your brain is ...

Howard County Realtor getting ready for the Fox 45 TV debut. Just yesterday I posted my fun early morning activity for today. I was headed to Elkridge to promote the April 13th Howard County Housing Fair. Go to bed early - Check Set the alarm- Check Wake up at 4:15am - Check (actually I did not sleep because I was unsure I had set the alarm correctly!) Get up, get ready and almost out the door - Check WHERE DID ALL THIS SNOW COME FROM? WHAT HAPPENED TO SPRING? Needless to say the snow took precedence and Joel D. Smith headed to Westminster Maryland to report on the snow. Still, all is not lost. We FINALLY get the first full snow day of the season and the snow is PERFECT snowball consistency. Schools are closed and the snow is still falling. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...
