Welcome to Crofton and Anne Arundel County, Maryland

Anne Arundel County is Home to Fort George G. Meade, NSA, Northrop Grumman, BWI, Parsons Paper, and the U.S. Naval Academy.  Welcome!

When you relocate to Maryland, you will fall in love with Anne Arundel County’s stunning scenery, laid-back atmosphere, and local fare from the Chesapeake Bay. Anne Arundel County’s convenient location, less than an hour from Baltimore, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., may attract residents and businesses alike – but it’s not the only reason they stay. 

You’ll see why residents love it here, as you explore the pages of this ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY RELOCATION PACKAGE and read some of my blog posts about communities, things to do, and the quality of life in this area.  There’s no substitute for a personal visit, of course, and I hope you’ll contact me soon to schedule your first house-huntiing trip.  As a native Marylander and long-time REALTOR, I know the area well and look forward to giving you the grand tour of Anne Arundel County (and nearby Howard and Prince George’s Counties, if you like).

In the meantime, check back often because you will find new posts added periodically.
