Many of my classmates from St Agnes School here in Arlington will recall that dating back as far as fourth grade, I would often be caught drawing houses at my desk vs. listening to Sister Mary Sharon Rose’s lecture. I point this out to parents given that clearly in my case this hobby was a harbinger of what career path I ultimately chose. I still to this day have a cigar box full of these earlier drawings.
Years later I found myself free handing a rendering of an upcoming listing. Unbenounced to me my assistant and nephew Jonathan submitted it for use in an advertisement for the property. I received a lot of interest in the property from prospective buyers specifically mentioning this advertisement and decided to continue when possible the renderings. I find the renderings tend to pop out amongst a sea of property photos.
