pcs to wrnmmc bethesda: "I don't take VA!" said the listing agent - 05/14/13 12:22 PM

"Sorry but I won't take a VA" was the first thing the listing agent said to me when I was trying to schedule a showing appointment for her listing in Columbia, MD. ???? Um. OK. At this point in time, I'm just trying to look at it.
Quite honestly, that comment rubbed me the wrong way - as a REALTOR® and as a military spouse. The eligibility for a VA loan is earned and many pay a dear price for it. I take great pride in helping military families who PCS to Fort Meade or WRNMMC Bethesda with their Real Estate … (35 comments)

pcs to wrnmmc bethesda: Moving to Maryland? What will your commute be like? - 06/28/12 11:42 AM

Meade - I have the pleasure of assisting many military families who are PCS'ing to the area. When it comes to rentals, more often than not, things need to happen fast.

PCS to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Bethesda: Commuting Options - Where is the best area to buy or rent?

The base realignment of Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the former National Naval Medical Center Bethesda, MD came with some big parking woes. Only about 25% of all troops and civilians working at WRNMMC have a parking pass to park on base.
