  • design within reach 2 (Sold at full list price in less than 30 days)

    House by house Greenmount West, one neighborhood located in Station North Arts and Entertainment District, is realizing the vision many in the area have hoped for.  I wrote about a house in this neighborhood a few months ago, “Design Within Reach.” That house sold quickly and...
  • 436 Federal Street — design within reach (sold above list price)

    Federal Street homes are ripe with value and nowhere is this more apparent than at 436 Federal Street. This is a true ground-up rehab with all new plumbing and electrical systems and, of course, a home warranty. The walls are architect white and the floors are light natural oak hardwood.
  • Reservoir Hill: It’s time for real estate.

    During my initial home search in Baltimore thirteen years ago, Reservoir Hill was described as a neighborhood on the rebound – a transitional neighborhood about to make that final transition.

Glen is rich in architectural diversity:  large craftsman-style bungalows, colonials, Cape Cods and split-level ranchers.  Sprinkled throughout Glen are low-rise 1950s-style apartment complexes,...

    Baltimore has over two hundred neighborhoods, each with a personality of its own. Some neighborhoods are deserts of every description – food, opportunity, hope, and peace of mind. Still others thrive with diverse demography and a thick canopy of mature foliage. Ednor Gardens is the latter.
  • Howard Park: A tale of two neighborhoods.

    After years of being considered a food desert, Howard Park now has a major grocery store. Whatever your perceived notions of what a ShopRite might look like, put that aside and visit this one. It’s nice. Just browsing the aisles, I notice a gourmet-shop array of olive oils.
