Thoughts On the Big Move

Posted on | January 15, 2019 | No Comments

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a post. I’ve been lost in transactions and some other pretty big happenings – the biggest being Samuelson’s move to Baltimore County after 96 years in downtown Baltimore.

The joy and satisfaction I’ve felt from this tremendous change, personally and professionally, is very difficult to put into words. This dream started about two years ago. While our Chevy Chase location was doing quite well, our Baltimore location was good, but not great. We redesigned our Baltimore office, as best as we could, to mimic our DC area spot, but the reality was that Baltimore Street, plain and simple, is not the place for a diamond dealer or a jewelry retailer. My friends and colleagues were not too keen on coming downtown. The parking is a mess, the neighborhood not wonderful. So the question was – do we move to another retail store, or make the dream of a private estate jewelry buying office and retail showroom a reality? We looked at several offices, a deal fell through, (thankfully) and we ended up in a great space, The Quarry at Greenspring.

I give all of the credit to my team. I am so proud to have a group of people who believe in the cause and push themselves to be greater. I am so thankful to share this with my father, who has always supported change. This is perhaps the key to a multi-generational family business. Accept and embrace change; it’s a very difficult thing to do but also the most important.

We are already transacting business and enjoying the new digs. And, perhaps most importantly, HAVING FUN, so stay tuned for more from Samuelson’s Diamonds & Estate Buyers. Yes, we’ve been around for 100 years, but we are only in the beginning of this new adventure!
