I was living in the Perry Hall area when I started looking for my first house. I wanted to move to an area that was not as crowded and congested. I looked at a lot of townhouses in Harford County. When I saw the houses in Harford Town I knew I had found my new home. I liked the fact that I drove past farms and cows to get there and that it was a very quiet, secluded community. I was the first owner of this house and it was perfect for my needs. I loved the crown molding in the living room and the fact that the lower level was finished as a family room, and office, with a full bathroom. The fact that there is so much light in this house coupled with 9-foot ceilings made the whole house look spacious.
What are few of your favorite features?
Well, I’d have to say the kitchen is really a standout feature for me. It is very large with plenty of cabinets, lots of counter space, an island, and an eating area. The pickled oak cabinets are unique. I love to cook so I need a lot of room in a kitchen. But the best part is that the patio doors open onto a private deck and as I am cooking I can see the beautiful green grass and the woods behind my house. I love this view.
This house has great storage space too. Each bedroom has a big closet that runs the entire length of the room. And there is a linen closet, a closet under the stairs and more storage in the lower level.
One thing that differentiates my community from others is that each unit has 2 assigned parking spaces. In other neighborhoods, it can be a free-for-all. There is a lot of overflow parking too, which is really nice for visitors.
What upgrades have really enhanced your home?
I love gardening and my curb appeal is the envy of the neighborhood. I landscaped not only the front but the back too. I also wanted to change some of the builder-grade features so I replaced the bathroom faucets, lights, and mirrors, added spot lights in living room and kitchen, chair rails in master bath, office, and family room, and put privacy fencing on the decks. I also have a High-Efficiency Washer and Dryer.
What are a few things you like about your community?
Wow, where do I start? I have lived here since 2002 and I have always had great neighbors, even though there has been turnover. We have community yards sales and you will always be able to find someone to help you shovel your snow. There are a community pool and tennis court for summer fun and exercise.
The location is great! Living here is like living in the country but I am just minutes from 95 which makes it so convenient if I want to go to Harve de Grace for dinner at Tidewater Grill, into Bel Air or shopping at White Marsh. I am 5 minutes from a Target. But what is really super is the Wegman’s that is just 5 minutes away. Wegman’s is a “grocery experience” and great for a foodie like me.
There are some really good restaurants in the area. I love the authentic Mexican food at La Tolteca – get the chicken fajitas. I would also recommend dining on the patio at Riverside Pub – they have a great way with mahi-mahi.
What more would you like to tell me about living here?
Leaving here is bittersweet for me. I am looking forward to my new life but sad to leave my first house. Tell the buyer to enjoy the wildlife that lives in the woods – foxes, cardinals, and blue jays - and to look out for the rabbits that have their babies really close to the deck. I hope that this house makes someone else as happy as I have been here.

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.

"When my cousin recommends someone to me, I know I can trust them. This is why I had no hesitation when he put me in contact with Alex Necker. As a 23 year old and a first time home buyer, I knew very little coming into this process — my main source of information had been HGTV. Due to personal circumstances, I didn't have much outside support, so I really leaned on Alex for help. He took baby steps with me when I needed it, but he also empowered me to make important decisions on my own. As cliché as it is, I truly felt like I was Alex's only client. He was always available to me and went above and beyond what I asked of him.
One of the best examples of this happened about half way through my search. There was a condo that I had dismissed because of the street that it was on. Shortly after I marked it as trash, Alex called me and told me that he thought it could be a good fit for me. Though I was still skeptical, I decided to trust him, and we went to see it. It turns out that I had misread the street name. Although the seller and I couldn't reach an agreement, I put an offer in on a property that I never would have looked at had Alex not been so diligent.
I highly recommend Alex to anyone looking to buy a home. He is proactive and knowledgeable, and he tailors his approach for each of his clients. He stuck with me for months, through market slumps and bid wars, and never once did I doubt his skill and dedication. Any realtor could have found me a property, but Alex helped me find a home.
