homerome: Unique Homes May Take Longer To Sell - 03/01/15 02:47 AM
 
Unique Homes
 
 
May Take Longer To Sell
 
My unique homes do NOT sell quickly but they do sell.
  Sometimes my special homes do sell in a week and even on Thanksgiving day or in the middle of  winter storms.
 

 
My goal is to find the right person and match your special home with the perfect  buyer.
If you have been following me, you know I take on unique/unusual properties.
Like this mini mansion in Monkton on 34 acres  built in 1812 with its own guest cottage and lower taxes because of the agricultural zoning.

homerome: Baltimore's Winter Weather Can Be A Challenge - 02/28/15 04:59 AM
 
Baltimore's Winter Weather
 
Can Be A Challenge
 
 
 As a  Baltimore listing agent this winter has  been a challenge.
Making my own appointments allows me to check on  driveway conditions at the last minute.  Some houses cannot be shown until the plow arrives. Some houses cannot be shown because of  black ice or snow on steps and walkways.
I have driven by many of my listings this winter, prior to showing, to insure the safety of the buyers and agents.
 
 
 
 

 
 
Someone  looking at houses in these  weather conditions is most likely a serious buyer.

Why There Was No Blog yesterday
 
Last night my friend Cheryl asked me to describe my daily routine. I had to laugh. There is very little that is routine but my days go by quickly and I am pretty productive.
Going to try and recap my  " typical" example of yesterday...Wednesday. 
 

 
Up between 5:30-5:50 because I set 2 alarms.
Always check emails before I go to the gym for my one hour of training. After my workout, I took a half hour nap and then a quick shower before the contractor arrives.  Since I am doing some … (36 comments)

How Do You Define Commitment?
 
Making a commitment involves dedicating yourself to a person or a cause. Before you make a commitment.. think carefully because it obligates you to do something.
In order to be a success there has to be commitment.
 
 When you take a job, you're making a commitment to show up and do the job well. The  employer makes a commitment to pay you.
My commitments are taken very seriously. When I take on a new client, I commit to getting that property sold and do whatever it takes from listing, to showings, to marketing, to being … (16 comments)

 The American Craft Council show is in Baltimore this week and I attended yesterday. Thank goodness I did not wait until today. With eight inches of snow and it's still coming down I would have missed one of my favorite events.
 
 
If you have been following me, you might remember that   My former career 
was a porcelain and ceramic artist.

Mixing Old With New
 
A HomeRome Teaser
 
Don't you love a tease?
There is a new listing that will be available in the next month or two.
The owners, who have lived in this historic home for a few decades, told me the Confederate army marched past this 1880's property.
 
Showing the old and the new.
 
Notice the statue on the stair banister and the old fireplace insert.
 

 
 
 
The attic has been turned into an exciting loft apartment with full kitchen, bathroom with jetted tub, living and dining areas, walk in closet and a balcony.

Realtors® Never Die
They Just Become Listless!
 
Listing agents have many sayings that stress the importance of
maintaining a listing inventory.
 

As a listing agent...here are a few more..
 
Listings are the name of the game.
Your income is determined by your listing inventory.
If you don't list, you don't last. 
 
How many have you heard?
Do you have any to share?
 
Some agents are struggling right now. Their business slowed between Thanksgiving and New Year's.
Even if they started listing at the beginning of the year it could be March or April before they … (35 comments)

Took These Photos AFTER Calling 911
 
These photos were taken after I called 911 and after the police and emergency crews were on the scene. With so much going on, those five minutes  talking to the 911 operator seemed a lot longer.
I was able to describe the turned over bus, share that the 16 passengers, many if not all in wheelchairs, were trapped inside and requested multiple ambulances.

Remember the movie when Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire) was screaming  SHOW ME THE MONEY.
 

 
That reminded me of a very contemporary home that was located on the Baltimore Beltway, a home that had 2 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms plus a pool.
Did I mention it was ON the beltway?
You could see and hear the highway noise.  Definitely not an easy sell and definitely not a clone-onial!
Received a call from a mature couple who had obtained my card from the seller's place of business. This card had a photo, the address … (34 comments)
