        Baltimore Restaurant Sushi Sakura There were eleven of us dining at Sushi Sakura, our first visit to this restaurant even though it is right in the heart of Pikesville next to the Gucci Giant.  Our lovely waitress, Cindy, was superb. All the orders were right and served with a big smile.           Orders to remind me to take pictures, were not followed. Having so much fun, a variety of foods and good conversation, I forgot to take photos of our dishes. So what does one do when this happens? You go to the other diners who are quietly enjoying their evening and you beg ask if you can "shoot" their food. Such delightful guests who allowed my intrusion so I would have some pictures to share with you. Baltimore Restaurant Sushi Sakura       Search All Active Listings

                  You Don't Have To Be A Member To Comment On My Blogs When I called my seller to tell her about our first showing tomorrow on Stirrup Court,  she told me she read my blog and liked the way it was presented. Her son had called from out of town and had seen the blog and the MLS write up.                          When I mentioned that they could both comment right on my blog and join in with the discussion, she was surprised.  How do we make our sellers, buyers, friends, neighbors and the general public aware of this feature? How do we let others know we welcome their participation?                                    Does anyone have a suggestion?              You Don't Have To Be A Member To Comment On My Blogs                                                    Search All...

You Got the Listing...Now What? So today I am going on a listing appointment. I have spoken at length with the seller, taken copious notes  and gained lots of information about her need to sell, the condition of the home, a description of the home, including recent updates, why she bought the house and the reason for selling.  I ask for a copy of the deed, title policy and a spare key for me. This is all done before I meet the seller. I have a list of every home on her street, when it sold, how long it took, what it sold for and comps for the neighborhood.  I have all the public records, assessor's map, the listing history, tax records etc.  When I arrive, bond with the seller I need two questions answered before I will consider taking on a client. Are you 100% sure you want to sell you...

A Few ''After" Photos From Gardenview It has been a year since I sold this Stevenson Rancher. And this weekend we were honored with an invitation to visit this very special home. Our hosts were so gracious showing off the house, serving delicious food and entertaining by the pool. I was so proud of all the changes made to this contemporary rancher. We had a grand time. Here are just a few photos and you know I will be back with more.      I love the new mailbox and front door!     Lower Level done to perfection.       Space for gracious entertaining.        Beautiful lower level.       The fireplace takes on a whole new look and feel.         Enjoying the pool on a July weekend.     State of the art treadmill with a TV and iPad cord. I love it!   I will be back with more details of the ...

The Falls Garden Condos at Summit Ridge in the Pikesville – Greenspring community are my favorite condo residences in the Baltimore County 21209 zip code. This clandestine location affords you all the amenities and savings of Baltimore County with quick and easy access to downtown Baltimore City attractions.  The community consists of three story garden-style condos grouped into manageable low rise buildings surrounded by mature trees and beautiful landscaping. The ground floor condos at The Falls have their own private garden spaces that make this community a great choice for someone who wants to live in condo and still have space to garden. Another excellent benefit of this enclosed garden (or patio) space is that pets can go outside and relax by simply opening your sliding doors. In ...

My Favorite Fast Food in Baltimore is Not a Drive Through. Have You Tried a Subway?                               Subway is not a drive through but is fast enough for a quick healthy lunch no matter what time lunch may be.  After a wonderfully busy day...notarizing signatures for a Monday settlement, showing a home in Carroll County, receiving the final initial change on 611 Milford Mill Road  which ratified this contract and placing my " Too Late"  rider on the sign, I was a bit hungry. Perfect timing, close to Milford Mill Shopping Center at 8037 Liberty Road, a foot long on fresh baked bread with lots of veggies sounded  like the right thing.                                        Grilled chicken on fresh honey wheat bread, lettuce, tomato, spinach, cucumbers, black olives, wet hots ...

                                            The Way to Sell a Home With a Garage in Baltimore   I recently listed 611 Milford Mill Rd in Pikesville, Sudbrook Park and minutes to the LIGHT RAIL. It is a charming colonial with a slate roof, 3 bedrooms and a first floor office with  1/2 bath and a door to the outside. You can see this office area on the left side of the house. This  used to be a real estate office way back when.                                                       On the right side of the house is a garage with automatic door opener!
