 Today I saw a matzoh ball smile and I think it was because 25 ActiveRainers were having such a good time in Baltimore. The place was Suburban House and here is a sampling of the various lunches.               Is this matzah ball smiling?                                              This sandwich is called "Mother in Law"           This is one of many 'create your own' salad.                        A grilled Reuban                A serving of challah French toast.                                 Homemade Rainbow cake with chocolate layers   Here is the list of ActiveRain members who attended the lunch in Baltimore today and how you can   Be With ActiveRainers Without Being With ActiveRainers!   Hoping to see more posts from the special members who shared this day with us in Baltimore

You can be with ActiveRainers without being with ActiveRainers. Our wonderful get together for lunch today at the Suburban House Restaurant was a huge success. There were two people with us not on the list.. One was Emily Medvec from Sante Fe who called yesterday asking for the address of the restaurant. This delightful white bear, a bunch of candy, including M&M's and a bouquet of balloons were waiting at our table when I arrived about 11:30AM. Even though Emily could not be with us in person...she was definitely with us. Thank you Emily!!             The second person was my friend mARTi Garaughty(who did the cover of my book)whose art work was won by a few lucky ActiveRain members. And the winners are: C Tann won one for being the member at the most Baltimore gatherings. Mortgage Mam...

 One Plus One Equals Two Dozen When You Start With The Right One! ActiveRain Gathering in Baltimore!                                          How can one plus one equal two dozen? It all started a few weeks ago when Mary Yonkers commented that she would be in the Baltimore area. A phone call to set up a date turned into a full blown ActiveRain happening. It was just going to be the two of us meeting (one plus one) until I wrote a post asking others to join us. Mary, plus three other reblogs,  plus word of mouth has turned into a gathering of over 25. How cool is that?   Whenever I hear a member say something like:  "I wish we could do that in an area closer to me."  my suggestion... pick up the phone, send an email, make a comment or better yet write a blog. It only takes you and one ot...

At today's settlement, I found the "keys" to another successful settlement.   By now you know I have some creative sellers. Remember my seller with this   New Invention? At today's  settlement I found the "keys" to another successful settlement. After the papers were signed, the checks cut and the funds wired, it was time for the exchange of the keys. The seller had a plastic bag filled with a bunch of keys... the main door key, garage key, mail key, the elevator key plus a few duplicates. We all have seen that familiar bag of keys and the "oh my how will I figure them out" look. Here is the solution! My brilliant seller, I might add that most of my sellers are brilliant, made a drawing!  A simple drawing, tracing each key and then describing which key opens the front door, the lobby, t...

   One of the townhouse condos  that I sold this year looked like this while it was listed  45 Farmhouse Court- Annen Woods- Pikesville-Baltimore, Maryland 21208    In case you are not clicking on the link here is a reminder of the kitchen before and during the renovation.                                        Stopping by to visit the new owner, today, I was delighted to see her wonderful changes.      Take a look at the renovated  kitchen with new ceramic floor, backsplash, stainless appliances, granite counters and new cabinets. It was dinner time and lots of activity going on.                            The living, dining area, along with the foyer have brand new gleaming hardwood floors. The only thing remaining is the chandelier which looks perfectly sparkling with new surrounding...

  It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like.... Halloween in Baltimore. This afternoon while visiting  dear friends and former clients who live across near 7011 Concord Rd. Colonial Village, Pikesville, MD 21208 Single Family Home Under $185,000   I could not help but take a few photos to share with you. Thinking about going over tomorrow night and taking Brad Andersohn's  suggestion. Did you read his post?  ''... don't forget to do as many tricks as you give out treats. My favorite trick of all is to Dress up as though you are the inanimate Halloween Decor for your lawn. Example: scarecrow, Frankenstein, etc. Be as still as you can. When someone walks by, jump out and scare the heck out of them. (not little children of course) It works every time!"         This is just some of  the eye candy o...

We are celebrating the birthday of a dear friend and  the founder of The CyberStars(tm) Allen Hainge. Many of us affectionately call him Bubba. You have heard me talk about these Stars before. Who Are Those Stars in Outer Space?  This is a wonderful group of about 225 tech savvy agents who love to share their knowledge with others. Today, October  6TH, is Allen's Birthday and a few us decided to surprise him. I offered to get the cake and, as a CyberStar, it had to be just a bit techie. Found out that The Gucci Giant, in Pikesville, can reproduce any photo for the top of the cake. Perfect. I photographed the CyberStars' Logo and took it  to the Giant this morning.                                                                                                                            ...

This is one of the best ideas that I have seen in sometime. I can think of several ways to use this. How about you?   Recently sold this Penthouse Condo  Baltimore Penthouse # 607, 1 Gristmill Ct. Annen woods, Pikesville, Maryland 21208   and we had our home inspection today. The windows are high and have shades that need to be raised and lowered depending on the sun's location and the time of day.   Being vacant, nothing to stand on, there was no way to reach the shades to pull them down. This brilliant buyer shows up with this clever, quite unique invention.  Someone probably makes this hooker broom but if so, I'm not aware. Did I just name this new tool. The Hooker Broom...A New Invention! One end there is a hook and the other is a broom. You can hang up the broom in any closet makin...

Suburban House re-opens in Pikesville!      Margaret Rome's "Kitchen" is Back! It was a bad night a year ago when my "kitchen" burned down. The fire was not at my house, but at the restaurant that served as our kitchen away from home. My "Kitchen" Burned Down! Baltimore, Md. But now my kitchen is open again! They've added things to the menu, and they've moved to a new location that is bright and colorful and has loads of parking. We still felt right at home! The New S&H has lots of Parking!

Housing Stats: New Home Sales Financed by the FHA   The Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development Friday released New Residential Home Sales survey data for March 2010.  Below is a graph which illustrates how borrowers are financing their new home purchases. "FHA IS THE WAY" has been the motto of many a mortgage banker and broker since the collapse of the secondary mortgage market in 2007. Notice how FHA marketshare has grown since then...one might argue many of the first time home buyers who took advantage of the tax credit were able to do so primarily because of the FHA's programs.   FHA was created in 1934 to serve as an innovator in the mortgage market, to meet the needs of citizens otherwise underserved by the private sector, to stabilize local and regional ...
