 The Sun Was Going Down Just Like My Tire But I was focused on getting my favorite property, 1560 Blue Mount Road , seen by prospective buyers. I wanted to get into the river cottage before we ran out of daylight.  After the tour of the main home and a hike to the river cottage, I shared with my sellers that I had a bit of problem...yep, I had a flat.   My wonderful seller, produced this marvelous gadget.  He hooked  the little inflating machine to my tire and within a very short time, my tire pressure was over 45psi. A little more than needed but it did get me home and safely in my garage. And yes the tire is flat again but this time I will call my mechanic to come fix it, not just fill it.

A View From The River CottageTalk about sheer beauty...take a look at a few photos taken yesterday while hiking on the NCR trail to the river cottage.  There was even one lady and her dog cross county skiiing. She mentioned it was much easier to ski than to walk. I definitely agree. This little cottage would make a great fishing/hunting lodge, guest house or a quiet get-a-way in Baltimore County.  Seriously does it get any prettier?The river cottage is being sold along with the main property at 1560 Blue Mount Road in Monkton, Md. 21111. Take a tour of the property    Below:Before the snow   To tour the river cottage and the farm house on 34 acres call me at410-530-2400

A Spring Board For Your Listings  Rich wrote a post Not just another dumping ground.  I have a different take on this subject. I will always post my listings on AR and use them as a spring board. The listings can then be linked to the neighborhood,  area attractions,  local restaurants and events. It is a great way to give our listings exposure. For example if you search my Farm on 1560 Blue Mount Rd you would come up with  dozens of articles. And one was an article written by a reporter for the BaltimoreFishbowl.com.  After all, it is my job to get my properties seen as much as possible.  ActiveRain blogging provides another tool in addition to my print media, website, MLS and radio show. When someone finds a good restaurant or local attraction, why not link it to the listing in that ...

Answer Your Phone It Might Be A Reporter   This may happen WHEN you answer your phone...even if the number is not familiar. It happened yesterday morning  around 10:30. In the middle of a very busy home inspection, my phone rang and it was a reporter wanting to do an online article about my 1560 Blue Mount Rd property in Monkton.  There was a 12 noon deadline. Instead of telling her all about the listing, I asked what angle she was taking. History was her focus. Since my sellers have lived on this 34 acre farm for the past 55 years, I put the reporter in direct contact with the owners and this terrific write up was on BaltimoreFishbowl.com  before  noon.Take a look at this lovely article written by Cynthia McIntyre 1812 Colonial Farmhouse In Monkton:34 Acres With Hilltop Setting And Acc...

GPS Does Not Always Work      With a showing on my gorgeous property at 1560 Blue Mount Road 21111 in Monkton, I had a call from the showing agent that her GPS would not take the address. No problem...I would read her the directions from mine.  But then ( after having my car in the shop this past week) I realized that  my GPS had been cleared of all  prior addresses.  I pulled off the road and  programed  1560 Blue Mount into my GPS. At the same time using Google Maps,  I got the directions, took a screen shot and messaged them to the buyer's agent.  Easy peasy.   It took only a minute. No time was lost since I was already on my way and the other agent got the directions without having to write them down. We were both on time for the 10:30 appointment at  1560 Blue Mount Road 21111  Now...

 Showing A Home The Rome Way This morning I was showing one of my very special properties, Sycamore Farms, to a prospective buyer.After the good mornings and how was your trip to the house, they asked which way do we have to start  looking at this house.My response...where would you like to start?  Since they came in the kitchen door (closest to  where we parked)  I said..why don't I  just follow  you. No way was I going to "make"  them go to the front entrance and  guide then to which rooms to see and in what order.    They were excited and knew the house from all the online photos and blogs. It was a delight watching them "discover" things they recognized like the greenhouse window in the laundry room, finding the five working fireplaces and many other unique details in and outside of...

Falling In Love Is Why Some People Move     There are so many reasons people move depending on their circumstances. Some of the reasons may be: Needing a larger or smaller space Financial changes School systems Easier lifestyle Age-Health-Marriage-Divorce-Retirement- Job loss- Job transfer-Death-Empty nesters-Expanding family-Boomerang kids etc.       But there is another reason   Falling in love.   No, not romantically but falling in love with a new home or new lifestyle.   Just yesterday, I had a young family take a look at my magnificent property  Sycamore Farm.   They do not NEED to move. They have a perfectly wonderful home that has just been remodeled to their liking. It has plenty of room, is convenient to their employment and in a good school system for the children.   This coup...

Sometimes It's Just About The Small Things   When talking about our properties, we tend to mention how many bedrooms, how many baths, how many fireplaces, how many acres or how much square footage.   Sometimes it's just about the small things.               Small, but important, things may be  special to the owner.   Maybe the love of birds highlighted in handmade tiles.   Maybe the greenhouse window with a tiny cardinal.   Maybe the custom designed spice rack.       Sometimes It's  Just About The Small Things
