vencie

Tomorrow, I’m hopping a flight to Italy to spend 7 days visiting Venice, Lake Como and Padua. I can’t wait!

We’re spending 2 days in Venice (this will be my view from the Airbnb we’re renting!), then 3 days in Lake Como and 1 day in Padua. I’ve never visited this part of Italy and these places have been on my “to see” list for years.

Any suggestions??

life via instagram july

Why hello! After a lovely 4th of July at the beach with my family, I’m back in DC and trying to survive the heat.  There’s nothing like showing property in 98 degree heat and humidity.  Uf.

What have you been doing?  Any good vacations coming up?

2125 14th ext

2125 14th St NW #330

1 bed + den + parking

list price | $609,000

sold price | $605,000

I represented the buyer in the purchase of this condo. I’m pleased to announce we negotiated $4,000 off the original list price.  It’s almost never happens in the DC market and I’m thrilled for my client.

2125 14th st lr

This is the 4th time this year I’ve negotiated money off the list price for my buyers.  Does it mean the market is softening?  A little. I think some sellers have dollar signs in their eyes and they’re pricing too high.  It’s a bit of a correction.

2125 14th kit

On the other hand, the last 3 offers I’ve written had multiple offers. In 2 of those situations, the home had over 8 offers! I know..the market here is nuts!

Contact me if you want to buy or sell.  As you can see, I know the ins and outs of the market and I’d love to help you.

master bathroom before after entry

After months of planning and three weeks of construction, the master bathroom renovation is done! I am thrilled with the results and the photos speak for themselves.

before after vanity2

The biggest change was transforming the shower stall into a vanity for my husband.  While it was never a hardship to share one vanity, having two is superb. There are many things I love about the new vanities: there’s a medicine cabinet! Two drawers of storage! My favorite is the One Forty Three light. I love color but kept the finishes neutral. The light is my one pop of color and it makes me smile. One Forty Three made them in a custom size and color but they were still affordable at $175 each.

before after mb vanitiy1

A million times better, right?  The bathroom feels larger and the amount of storage we gained is insane. I *actually* don’t have enough stuff to put in the medicine cabinet, vanity drawers and the tall cabinet near the tub.

before after tub

For the floors, I used a 14″ x 16″ porcelain tile by Storka. For the tub and the vanity alcoves, I used a 1.9″ x 7.8″ matte white subway tile laid vertically.  I can’t find a link for it but it came from Home Depot. I also added 2 overhead 9″ LED lights from ylighting.  The faucets and shower are by Moen, the Eva line.

Next on the agenda is adding art and accessories.

Shout out to Justin Mattice of Mattice Designs for taking my ideas and making them into a reality. He was instrumental in sourcing the tile, cabinets, and vanities. He was also really patient. I had 8000 questions and concerns.
