Commander-in-Chief Visits Silver Spring Elementary School

How did we miss the motorcade passing Albany Grove on Briggs Chaney Road yesterday? President Obama's motorcades are impossible to miss: roads closed, 12 motorcycles, 6 black Suburbans, a few military vehicles, 2 traditional limos, the Presidential limo / tank, followed by more of the same and at the end of the group a single ambulance. Another day in the National Capitol Region. After visiting their daughter's school the First Couple visited an elementary school in Silver Spring to congratulate the children their reading scores. Montgomery County has long boasted some of the best schools in the nation and now President Obama knows first hand how great they are. How exciting!

Pumkins, Gourds & Mums...Oh My!







Once again our home owners have been a source of a great referral. Albany Grove home owner, Liz Eberhardt and her mom, wanted us to let everyone know about Fehr's Nursery & Garden Center just around the corner from Albany Grove in Burtsonville. Located at 4340 Sandy Spring Road they are open Sunday-Monday 9-5 and Saturday 8-6. You'll find a huge selection of pumpkins & gourds in all sizes, colorful mums & pansies and loads of chatter about the woes of the Redskins with the owners, Miriam & Walter, especially Miriam. What a great way to spend the afternoon?

A Special Lombard Court Resident with an Amazing Talent



Gina Finelli from Lombard Court took these terrific photos of the neighborhood surrounding the community. I noticed these black and white photos perfectly matted and framed in her foyer on bright white wainscot and thought everyone would love to see them.
Great job Gina! Who knew you were a Professor and a Photographer? Watch out Annie Leibovitz.

5 for 5 GREAT AMERICAN LIVING AWARDS 2009




WOW, what a night at the Ritz! OPaL and P Four won all four design awards we were nominated for. Best of all the fifth award won by our very own Christina Coulter for Sales Person of the Year 2009 for her work at Albany Grove. Later the judges told us what a tough group she was up against with new home sales professionals from Richmond to Baltimore and DC to West Virginia. No one deserves to be honored for her efforts more than Christina.
