What the Seller Says…
What drew you to the property?
In a word, we would say, “flow.” Light cascading through the oversized, transomed windows and 9-foot ceilings on both levels were an invitation to move from one room to the next. The family room is dramatic with its 20 foot vaulted ceiling. The entire space was simultaneously communal and private – the large rooms that opened from one to the next on the first level said “togetherness.” The wide upstairs hallway offered a great view to the lower level but also allowed each bedroom to be a private retreat. We loved the dual staircase that led to the front of the house and to the back of the house. We were instantly captured by this property and knew that 3200 square feet would be perfect for our growing family.
What upgrades have really enhanced your home?
Our enhancements were designed to move the interior space from amazing to absolutely stunning. We added hardwood floors to the upstairs hallway and installed recessed lighting. We replaced the overhead lights with fixtures that can only be described as works of art. Our contractor installed built-in bookcases in the study and two of the bedrooms. We also customized the closets in three of the bedrooms. We added a maintenance free deck which is so great for entertaining. Our grounds were professionally landscaped. The flowering pear trees along the curve of the driveway are just lovely in the spring. Recently, we had the house professionally painted in warm neutral tones. We replaced the refrigerator, washer, and dryer in 2013 and installed new garage doors in 2015.
What are a few of your favorite features in the house?
Our family spends most of our time together in the gourmet kitchen and family room. We love to cook and there is plenty of room for 4 cooks. We have extensive counter space, an island and a very large butler’s pantry. We love the way the glass cabinets in the center island face the family room.
Our kitchen and breakfast room open to the family room. When the deck was added we even had more space to entertain our friends and family.
The ceilings on both levels of this house are 9 feet. This feature creates a sense of spaciousness upstairs. In the master bedroom, which is huge by the way, there is an elegant tray ceiling that is surrounded by crown molding. The upstairs has four bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms are connected by a “buddy bath” and our guest room is also an en suite.
What are a few things you like about your community?
Colvard Manor is a very quiet community that is removed from traffic and suburban bustle. As we approach our community we always look for the llamas at the farm on Johnson Mill Road. Because the lots are over an acre, this is the kind of community where we can be as close to or as distant from our neighbors as we want to be. It has been easy to make friends here.
Our location is great. We live in the country but are only 5 minutes from a grocery store and 10 minutes from Bel Air. We are only a short drive to our fitness center and the Ma and Pa Trail is only 10 minutes away.
Where do you eat and shop for groceries and other conveniences?
Everything we need is really close by. For groceries, we shop at the Giant, Shop Rite, and Redner’s. Courtland Hardware in Bel Air is our go-to hardware store -- the personal service we get there is great. We love to garden and get our plants at Grier’s Nursery.
For dining, we recommend Enotria that is only 5 minutes away – try the Ravioli specials. One of our favorite restaurants, The Lodge, is only 1 mile away. And if you need something to eat quickly, both Chick-fil-A and McDonald’s are also close.
What more would you like to tell us about living here?
The most amazing thing about living here is the view. Our house sits on the crest of the community and looks stately and magnificent as we approach. The rolling hills fall away from our property and the panorama is spectacular. There are horses grazing in the distance. As close as we are to conveniences, the scene is pastoral. The sky is so, so big from this vantage and the sunsets are very grand. And when the night sky fills with stars, well, that is just absolutely breathtaking.

About Alexander Necker, Real Estate Sales Consultant
I specialize in selling the Baltimore Metropolitan’s Premier Homes.
I am an Eagle Scout. I mention this because the process of becoming an Eagle Scout provided me with the foundation by which I live my life. The values of trustworthiness, integrity, and helpfulness have allowed me to become the man I am today.
The words that describe me are:
Driver of my own professional destiny
Conduit for connecting people for professional development
Devoted husband with a wonderful wife
Father to 2 beautiful children with growing college funds
Student of Finance and Investments
After graduating college and starting a career in my field of study (agronomy), I quickly rose to the position of assistant and then superintendent of private golf courses. After 17 years in the golf business, I decided it was time to change to a career where I would not be at the mercy of the uncontrollable forces of sun, wind and rain. I chose a field where I would be the master of my fate, where the hard work and the long hours to which I am accustomed would be the determinant of my success.
The primary reason I am in the real estate business is to help people. A real estate transaction is one of the largest financial transactions you will ever undertake. Everyone deserves a real estate partner that understands and appreciates that fact. My focus on integrity, trust and communication are nothing less than I would want for myself, my family or friends entering into a large financial proceeding. I am committed to being the one real estate agent that keeps my client's best interests front and center.
In real estate, I consider myself to be a true professional in the same vein as the physician, the attorney and the accountant whom you must trust with the most important assets of your life. Nothing less is acceptable.

"Alex Necker came highly recommended to us and we are delighted to write a review of his performance as our realtor.
We wholeheartedly recommend Alex to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home. With his eagerness to please and stellar competence, he made what could have been a trial (buying a home) a breeze for us. We found his demeanor most engaging. He was always cordial and personable toward us. His work ethic, diligence and promptness of service impressed us beyond measure. He treated us as though we were his only clients. His attention toward us was more that of a family member than a realtor to client. We truly felt he was our advocate, not merely serving as simply our realtor. He insisted we were aware of possible flaws with the home we ultimately decided to buy and we found his honesty refreshing. After all, no house is ever going to be perfect. He thoroughly enjoys his work and this is personified in his attentiveness and enthusiasm. Do not even consider engaging the services of any other realtor. After working with Alex, we no longer consider him as simply a realtor who made buying our new home a snap, we consider him a friend for life!"
