Dear Friends,

Check out this AMAZING, beam me up Scotty moment! This remarkable resource was created by Anthony Allen, expert videographer – I wish The Cube would replace all of the awkward Zoom meetings.

We just wrapped up a week at Bethany Beach: sun and wind, wild waves and sea bathing, fishing seahawks diving for their dinner and dolphin antics were the highlights of the trip. We loved playing with our granddaughter in the sand and waves, and enjoyed watching other happy children doing what kids do best – play!

Now, back to school, work and thoughts of fall: we have listings coming up on Capitol Hill on S.Carolina Ave. and in Forest Hills on Nebraska Ave., as well two gorgeous boutique penthouses (currently for sale or rent) next to Meridian Hill Park. Please continue to send us your referrals and keep us in mind for any real estate matters – we greatly appreciate support during challenging times.

We have many online events, a few outdoor events and some charity suggestions for you for September. Many thanks to my assistant, Heather Stone, for her committed efforts in finding charitable and cultural events for you every month, especially during the pandemic: three cheers for Heather!!

Stay well, let us know if you need anything, much love,

Sheryl and Harry

PS: Time to service the furnace for fall – Broady and Dodge HVAC is ready to help.
