Mimi's Cafe® bills itself as your "neighborhood bistro" - it does feel like it, too, with its interesting decor, the welcoming ambiance, the good food ("a taste of France") and the decent prices. It's a comfortable place to enjoy with your family - it's casual, small kids are welcome - or good friends. I love going to Mimi's Cafe® in Elkridge, MD. It's located right off Route 175 at the Gateway Overlook Center. Last week was my friend Rosie's birthday. Rosie has a very special place not in only in my family but in my heart. We met a few years ago when she joined the office I was affiliated with and hit it off right away. We got along so great that our friendship naturally flowed into business as well and I followed her to the family-owned business of Thompson Company Realtors. I can co...

'Twas the week before Christmas and all through the town Santa's firetruck was wailing for all the children to come 'round!   Every Christmas season the Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department gives Santa and Mrs. Claus a lift around town. Their schedule is never known thus you have to listen for the sirens. A couple false alarms are a given and you can see all the kids running outside whenever a firetruck goes by during December! Besides handing out candy and spreading some Christmas cheer they are also collecting canned food, which kicks off the Elkridge VFD annual Holdiay Food Drive, and wrapped gifts for needy children. Donations can also be dropped off at the station: 6275 Old Washington Road, Elkridge, MD 21075.

The Rockburn Heritage Center: restoration and deterioration side by side Pfeiffer's Corner School is a 19th century 1-room schoolhouse. Since 2003 the school has been sitting across the street from Rockburn Elementary School in Elkridge, MD. It was moved to its present location at Rockburn Branch Park and restored. Pfeiffer's Corner School is a significant piece of local history and well worth the preservation efforts. Today it is used for educational purposes - What was school like in 19th Century Howard County?Pfeiffer's Corner School is one of three historical buildings that make up the Rockburn Heritage Center.

Today I LABORed away. We had a difficult task to accomplish that required "artistic skills" (I must have misplaced mine) and "patience" (lost that while searching for the artistic skills). I tossed and turned the last few nights since the assignment emphasized how much "effort, neatness and attention to detail" count. No pressure, right? Right. It was a team effort, after all we had to "clone" my daughter today and I couldn't have done it without her. I hope we did good! My daughter attends Rockburn Elementary School in Elkridge, MD. Rockburn Elementary is one of 40 Elementary Schools in Howard County, MD and recognized as a Green School, Healthy Howard School and its staff also achieved the PBIS Gold Standard (positive learning initiative). My daughter loves going to school, she loves ...

Finally a Howard County short sale that was not the usual nightmare. There was just one loan on the property and Wells Fargo was the lender.This Howard County home was left in great condition by the sellers.The property was listed on the MLS on November 4th 2010The McIntire Team aggressively marketed this home with the same level of intensity as a regular sale.  Click here to see this listing.4 offers were submitted. (3 were not even in the ballpark despite being aware that it was a multiple offer situation).We were "Under Contract" in 8 days with a full price offer. Short Sale approval was granted within 27 days. Settlement occurred on January 14th 2011Credit in full goes to Michelle Blaustien at  Sage Title in Ellicott City who took over all of the communications with the bank. She ma...
