Yesterday was a glorious Spring day. The sun was out until late afternoon and it was warm enough to leave the sweater at home. It was the perfect excuse - not that we really needed one - to head to our most favorite ice cream location in Ellicott City's historic district. Park Ridge Creamery opened their windows for the season and lots of Main Street visitors took advantage of it. If you are familiar with Ellicott City's history and the devastation the two flooding events in 2016 & 2018 have caused, seeing Old Town bustling with activity is simply a beautiful sight! If there's one small town USA that deserves all the love and support, Ellicott City is it - Gorden Ramsay very much agreed, by the way!That would be another excuse - if you, or I, really needed one - to head to Main Street a...

If you own a home in Oella/Ellicott City and are considering selling this Spring, I may already have the perfect buyer for you! Charming home wanted in Historic Ellicott City/Historic Oella District: condo, duplex or cozy single family home 1 to 2 bedrooms  original details or loads of charm preferred parking for at least 1 car (on-street, off-street, or garage) storage space for bikes My buyer fell in love with the area when he toured the apartments at Oella Mill. But since he's already envisioning himself becoming a regular at Georgia Grace Cafe (the best crepes!), treating himself at the Park Ridge Creamery (the best ice-cream!), and meeting up with friends at any of the charming pubs and restaurants that line Ellicott City's historic Main Street, he'd much rather find a permanent ho...

The Symphony of Lights has been a time-honored Howard County holiday tradition enjoyed by many for 27 years. Set in the historic Merriweather Post Pavilion and made up of more than 300,000 bulbs, this family-oriented spectacular is a dazzling display of larger-than-life animated and stationary holiday light creations.  Take some time to drive through this spectacular Symphony of Lights in Colombia, Maryland. My daughter and I did this as a Mini Cooper Rally and toy drive. Lots of fun and a lovely way to see the lights. Thanks for hosting Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker and Carol Williams

The new EC Diner delivers big. Literally! Their Crazy Milkshakes are out of this world. The new EC Diner just opened its doors in July 2020, and word is already traveling around town, Howard County and beyond that they are serving up sundaes of epic proportions, a family sized version, perfect for sharing. Indulgers beware (or prepare). The EC Diner is calling them Crazy Milkshakes... which is not an exaggeration: THE OREO SHAKENutella frosting inside the glass and on the rim, rolled over chunks of Oreo cookies, filled with Oreo vanilla ice cream milkshake, topped with whipped cream, chucks of Oreo cookies, chocolate chip ice cream sandwich, drizzled with chocolate syrup and whole Oreo cookies Just to give you an example. That is crazy alright! But special occasions call for special tre...

Today we set out on a quick 3 mile hike in Patapsco Valley State Park, but decided a couple miles in to take the path less traveled. We are frequent visitors, and know our way around "our" part of the woods pretty well. Today though, we were curious, and feeling adventurous, and on a whim, turned onto an unfamiliar path. 3 miles turned into 9.5, one hour into more than four. We got lost in Patapsco Valley, and it was glorious! We cooled off in the Rockburn Branch, feasted on wild raspberries, and stumbled upon an old graveyard, and something that resembled an old gas station pump (?). We truly appreciated the Maryland Environmental Trust and all this land forever protected has to offer us, and even had a rare encounter with a black squirrel! While squirrels and I are not best friends (I...

Sold in 24 Hours!!  9215 F Bridle Path Ln, Laurel, MDAnd, during a pandemic!!  Within 24 hours on coming on the market, we received multiple offers for this great condo townhome in the Whisky Bottom neighborhood in Laurel.  The seller had the home freshly painted, installed a brand new HVAC system and new lighting, updated closets, and professionally cleaned before putting it on the market.  We put in some homey touches like shower curtains, towels, and some very light staging.  And, because of the pandemic, we put a table by the door with hand sanitizer and wipes on it.  But, the first two people to see it both submitted offers so it didn't stay on the market long.  The home inspection was done within a week, the final repairs made and we went to closing.The final sales price:  $201,00...

Way back in March (which seems like forever ago) when the State of Maryland began shutting down, and we were all trying to figure out how to continue, how to adapt, what to adapt to, and awaiting guidance from the Gov's office, and our REALTOR® Associations, I decided to use this time in the best way possible. If I'm going to be stuck at home, I would do all the things. I would tackle my home improvement list. I would clean up my office. I would get all the continuing education done that is needed for the next license renewal - and then some! I truly had grand plans to do it all and more, to not only survive this pandemic, but to thrive, and to emerge with more certifications/designations behind my name, more knowledge, more tools, more energy...  Well.. fast forward to today. My house ...

It didn't take long for the perfect buyers to fall in love with this townhome on Wild Ginger Court in Columbia's Village of Hickory Ridge. We listed it in mid-March - before the wooded area behind the block was dressed in all shades of green, and before we could show off just how picturesque the view really is - had showings scheduled back-to-back, and had a contract in hand just 4 days later. Yesterday was Happy Closing Day - my favorite day of the week! This one is one for the memory books for sure! Not only did we have to adapt to the restrictions that come with a pandemic and stay-at-home order, but also finalize the sale in the midst of a severe weather advisory and torrential downpour. As is the norm right now, settlement was a split one, the seller signed during a parking lot clo...
