The COVID-19 Chapter, “At Home”: DAY 9 Waiting for the shoe to drop – and sending messages of support! Is shelter in place coming for Maryland? I’m letting clients know we care, and I’m enhancing my property listings with virtual staging by Monument Sotheby’s International Real Estate. Which is actually quite fun. FIRST OF ALL […]
