An unfortunate downturn in the Texas residential housing market, which caused tremendous financial stress, forced them to scrap these plans and re-focus on options available in the Baltimore market. The Glover’s are now part of a growing “renters by choice” movement which provides them with the flexibility, available capital and preferred home style to meet their lifestyle. Read More →
