Most memorable house: In the mid-‘90s, I listed a house in Silver Spring that everyone called a “dollhouse.” It was only a two-bedroom Cape Cod for around $150,000, but it was one of the most stunning and charming houses I’ve ever seen. Even in the poor seller’s market we were in, there was a mad rush to buy it. I still keep a picture of it in my front-office desk drawer today.

Worst experience: I had a transaction as the listing agent where the buyer’s agent forged signatures on the contract. The buyers decided at the last minute to back out of the contract and their basis for legal termination was that they never signed the contract. After many headaches and several days of difficult times with my sellers and the other agent and broker, I forced the selling agent to buy the house or she would face legal charges and be stripped of her license.
