Vintage Coffee Shop--Mt. Airy The Vintage Coffee Shop in old town Mt. Airy is an amazing place.  As the name suggests, you can get any type of coffee you desire, whether your little heart desires a hearty cup of regular grind or the more exotic blended varieties.  If you own a laptop, the WIFI is free, unlike Starbucks, and you can relax in a separate lounge, complete with leather furniture and an oversized checkers game that comes with its own hand-woven mat.  Breakfast sandwiches are available along with an excellent homemade cinnamon bun with a generous portion of icing.  (Watch out!  These are a bit habit forming.) The owner has been known to entertain  on occasion for those lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time.  His name is Ed Caballero, and he tells me he has be...

Concetta's Deli in Mt. Airy, Maryland Among my more satisfying finds in Mt. Airy is Concetta's Italian Deli. Everything is made fresh daily, even the bread and they use local produce and meats as much as possible.  The results are incredible. They make a meatball sub that is to die for.  Anytime I am in the vicinity, I can't resist getting one. They roast the meatballs in the oven and then make this delectable tomato sauce.  You might want to try one of their authentic Italian drinks such as the fizzy orange or lemon, made with real fruit juice.  Their desserts are also very tempting.  Try the cannoli or homemade cookies.  Concetta's is located on Main Street in Mt. Airy.  One can eat in or carry out.  The décor is simple but cheerful; tomato cans filled with bright flowers adorn the ta...

RIDGEVILLE HEIGHTS REO BARGAIN - MOUNT AIRY, MARYLAND September home buyers need to watch the inventory of lender owned homes.  The lenders have a surplus inventory of foreclosed homes and are highly motivated to sell them before the winter season.  Prices are reduced until the homes are under contract.  It is a good time to make offers.  Let us show you how to be the successful purchaser of a REO property. Many families are using FHA financing for the low cash requirement and easier underwriting requirements.  Recent changes by the White House made FHA even more attractive for use when purchasing lender owned homes.  Buyers need to be pre-qualified for financing. Ask us for the name of a loan officer.  We represent buyers as their exclusive agents.  Let us know if you would like to rec...

Looking for a Career In Real Estate in Frederick County MD 1512 Ridgeside Dr, Mt Airy, MD 21771 Click to View Show Any more it seems that everyone you meet in Frederick County is either in Real Estate or has been in Real Estate. Why is that? For the most part everyone thinks it’s easy money. All that commission you get to keep!!! First of all it’s not all that easy and definitely not a lot of money when you are trying to run your own business. The broker gets a piece, the goverment gets a piece, etc… We have seen a continuous exodus to the industry since the market has slowed down and this is not a bad thing… plenty of folks got into this industry and really shouldn’t have in the first place. Good people, but just not made for real estate. It comes with a lot of responsibility to wear ...
