Stephen J. Ferrandi

Stephen has been a licensed real estate professional since 1997.  Today, along with his life partner Barb Bindon, he owns six real estate brokerages including Red Barn Realty.   A native of Catonsville, he has been active in Howard County for more than twenty years.   In addition to owning the Shipley-Curtis Farm, where Red Barn Realty and many of his other real estate brokerages are headquartered, he is active in the social, political and development sphere of Howard County.

In 2002 he was hired by the Curtis family to sell the family farm which has become the community of Shipley’s Grant and the most important real estate transaction of his life. Today, he owns a home in Shipley’s Grant, is a member of the HOA, active on the Shipley’s Grant social committee and loves talking about this community when he isn’t busy selling homes here.  He was active from the very beginning in the design and layout of the community and worked as the liaison between the Curtis family and the developer/builder of the community Bozzuto Homes and helped to place the farm field into preservation with both Howard County and the Maryland Historic Trust.
