Maryland Blogger: A Sweet Surprise from the Sky Group at Long and Foster Real Estate

A Sweet Surprise from the Sky Group at Long and Foster Real Estate

A Sweet Surprise from the Sky Group at Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc.


Chef Dolores and I attended the recent Ideal-Living show in northern Virginia. During our tour of the exhibits, we stopped to chat with Josh Warner and Barak Sky of the Sky Group at Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. in Bethesda, Maryland. They encouraged us to register for the drawing that was to take place at the end of the weekend show. 

We received a call telling us that we won the drawing for a Sugarfina Mini Trunk Box. Josh and Barak personally delivered the prize to our home in Kentlands. We gave them a tour of our home since we are thinking about selling it if we find a retirement home that we like. 

Thanks to the Sky Group for this sweet surprise.

Roy Kelley - What a sweet surprise! I like that blue box it came in too! Wouldn't it be grand if you got a buyer on your house before you even put it on the market? I have a feeling Josh and Sky were equally impressed! 

Whatever you and Dolores decide, I wish you both the best. Have you thought about other Arboretums and/or Botanical Gardens where you might consider looking for property for the future? I remember visiting a really nice one in Sarasota, Fl several years ago. Now that it is officially St. Patrick's Day, I hope you and Dolores receive the luck of the Irish and keep that lucky streak that Josh Warner and Barak Sky brought you!
