Pretty Stevenson Kitchen
 
And Dining Outside
 
 

 
This large Stevenson kitchen has a center island with gas cooking, a commercial vent, a huge refrigerator, double ovens, a separate chest freezer, green house window over the sink, great storage, laundry, white oak flooring and sliders to the deck. 
 
There are other places to dine when you live in a Contemporary home on 3 + wooded acres. There are multiple decks with access  from most rooms including the kitchen and dining room.
Think alfresco dining. Think expanding living and entertaining space.

  I like getting my properties under contract at the end of the
 
year so I have transactions in the pipeline for 2015.
 
 
How many Too Late Signs Can You Find?
 

 
 
In order to fill the pipeline,
 
you have to do some business in November.

All Wrapped Up
 
Another party tonight with everyone bringing a present for the gift exchange. I had the item ready but it was not wrapped.
As usual for a Sunday, I was running a bit late after my radio show,  lunch with my daughter and an offer coming in on one of my condos.
 
 

 
 
Grabbing some paper, I remembered  Sharon Tara's
suggestion for wrapping and I decided to try it.
Hey It really worked and in no time it was....

Alice's Pretty Party 2014
 
For years we have been enjoying a wonderful tradition attending Alice's Pretty Party.
 

 
 
 
Just take a look at photos of Alice's past parties. 
 
This year was different. Going without My Lee was a real challenge.
The party was magical, so pretty, the food was perfection and the people were warm and welcoming. So glad I went and embraced and was embraced by so many people who also loved Lee.
I am thankful for the memories, thankful for good friends and thankful for more good times.
Happy Holidays to all.

Rancher With No Steps In Stevenson
 
3500 Woodvalley Drive
Stevenson, Md. 21208
$549,944
 
If there is no basement there must be no place to put the stuff.
Not true in this sprawling white brick rancher in the Stevenson area of Baltimore.
 

 
 
 
 
Take a look at the over sized 2 car garage with the clever  storage loft, the bonus room and the spacious laundry conveniently located next to the kitchen.
In addition there is a  workshop, shed and huge walk in master bedroom closet.

 How To Choose A Mentor
 
Recently was asked the question... how someone would go about finding a mentor and this is how I answered.
 
 
 
I love being a Realtor® for more than 24 years, a solo broker of HomeRome Realty, the author of Real Estate The Rome Way,  a daily blogger,  the host of my own  weekly radio show All About Real Estate and a wonderfully busy agent with a waiting list.
Every day I talk to agents all over the country and sometimes do things other agents do not approve of.

 The Greatest Gift
 
of life is friendship! 
 

 
 
This saying never rang more true than this year. The support of so many friends and colleagues along with family and clients has been overwhelming.
 
 
The  way to repay this gift is to stay in touch with others who may need me.

Do You Need New Dishes?
 
 
Most of us love to sell real estate and help people with their moving plans.
Just recently I sold a lovely condo unit and saw the owner  packing to send these china place settings to a consignment shop.
 
 
 
Bright idea!
 

 
 
Post these items and see if there are  members who could use a new set of dishes for their home or would like to make a gift to some special family member or friend.
There are members with new kitchens or building a new home. How about … (14 comments)

  12- 13- 14 That's Today!
 
If you wrote a check or a contract or anything that needed a date...you would have written 12-13-14.
Anyone know how long it will be before that happens again? 
 
 
My beautiful daughter said there was no way I could write my daily post and incorporate this fact.
But I am sure she just said that knowing you cannot tell me what I cannot do!
As I recall I did this similar thing with numbers last year

Buy Or Sell By Committee
 
What does she mean?
 
Have you ever taken a listing, received an offer and then find out one son is an attorney, another is a Realtor® another is an accountant and another is a home inspector?
And they all have opinions!
 
 
 

 
 
 
Have you ever worked with buyers who have seen dozens of homes? They    find the " right one" and are ready to write an offer.
But wait...  Mom, Dad, Grandmother and Susie want to see the house before final signatures.
And they all have opinions!

Each week I share the Baltimore Humane Society's Pet Of The Week in hopes that these needy animals will find forever homes.
 
 

 
Would love to see other members do the same thing in their area so
we, the ActiveRain community, could make a difference.

Belle Could Be In Your Home For The Holiday
 

This week there are three pets looking for homes. There is Belle who would make a nice addition to any home. Look at the commands she already knows. 
And then there is Whitney and Whitley, sister cats, who would love to find forever homes.
Do you have room in your heart and in your home for Belle, Whitney or Whitley ?
 
Please give the Baltimore Humane Society a call to set up your appointment to visit Belle, Whitney and Whitley.

Could not resist putting up a couple of photos I found a few years ago.
Never had the nerve to post them. I thought about sending them to Roger D. Mucci because he would be perfect for taking credit or blame.
What's the worst that can happen to me?
It is all fun.

 Not All Home Inspections Are Like A Root Canal
 
 

 
I  prepare my sellers for a home inspection  by saying : Having your home inspected  is like having a root canal and a colonoscopy at the same time.  You don't want to be there because every nook and cranny will be checked out. That convinces my sellers to leave.
 
Today my wonderful sellers left  but not before they prepared the house with  a plate of snacks, a fresh pot of coffee and a few notes for the inspector.
