Bethesda Real Estate is Hot!

As I am sure you may have heard on the news and read in the paper, real estate is back!  As professional agents, Brian and I are hearing comments from people that it must be a great time to be in real estate.  Well, the market has certainly surged again and it’s nice that we no longer have to comfort sellers who were unable to sell their homes for an acceptable price […]

Step into History while you Enjoy a Sandwich

One of the great benefits of living in Bethesda is the proximity to Washington D.C. and all that the Metro area has to offer.  Today reminded me of that perk.  Brian and I were out touring homes for sale during Tuesday Broker’s Open Houses in Bethesda and afterward popped into Spring Valley for lunch.  We decided to grab a bite at Wagshal’s Delicatessen located at 4855 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington DC […]

On April 19th, 1861 riots broke out in Baltimore during the early days of the Civil War and the Massachusetts regiment of soldiers was attacked.  Many of the men were former students of Clara Barton when she was a school teacher there.  They made their way to Washington D.C. and told her about the fact that the U.S. Army did not have any supplies to care for the injured.  Clara did not […]
