Call us crazy – our first flip is on a property that when complete will list at well over a million dollars! My husband Doug and I co-own a successful real estate team, The Maryland and Delaware Group of Long & Foster. We were number 2 in Long & Foster this past year and made the Inc 5000 list. We NEVER have a slow time of year. That makes it all the more nuts that we took this big project on. But it gets better. Not only are we flipping this big historic home, but we’re making it a Designers’ Show House!
This prominent location had everyone buzzing about what we would do with it. So I said to Doug, let’s make it a show house and give back to our community. It’s a fantastic visible location directly across from Baker Park and a couple of blocks to downtown shops and restaurants. The event will run June 12-23rd with all proceeds benefiting The Weinberg Center for the Arts. Our local interior designers can showcase their talents and sell their furnishings and decor. It’s truly a win win for all.
I’ll continue to blog about this new adventure. So far we’ve completed demo of kitchen, baths, a couple walls, and drywall is complete on newly finished areas as well. The reno is taking shape and we’re excited to show you more! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @frederickshowhouse.
