It was a pretty house that Zillow had for rent by "owner" at $80...

This might be Washington's prettiest week of the year.  The cherry blossoms are in full bloom, and we have more tourists than people who live here.  They look sort of like cotton candy. I took this shot from the steps of the Jefferson Memorial, looking across the Tidal Basin toward the Martin Lu...

Scary Headwear?  I think so! Not sure this heaewear is my style.  Something about it just makes me a little bit nervous.  It looks a little bit unpredictable - it could fly off her head at any moment.  Or even worse, it might, you know.  Live creatures often do nasty, messy things.  Know where th...

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I am the devoted human of Willie the Labradoodle.  And living with Willie for the past bunch of years has convinced me that dogs are superior beings.  Many times over my career, I have been known to suck up to the family dog to get a listing.

Adventures as a First Time Buyer – Autumn of 1981 The loan officer called me a couple of days before my scheduled settlement. “Great news!" she said. "I was able to lock in your mortgage at 18%!”  What?  Was this a bank or a loan shark? My first real estate transaction was not pretty.  I lived in...
