I couldn't believe it when I saw it on CNN last night.  Virginia had been RED in all the years I can recall since I've been voting.  But in this race, CNN had Virginia as YELLOW (too close to call).  Exciting!  My state's in play...the phone is ringing off the hook.  I LOVE chaos!!! But the ultra...

One year ago I took a short sale listing in a very targeted neighborhood; a 55+ community.  I knew it wouldn't be easy to find a buyer.  It wasn't.  Many price reductions (we were competing with the on-going new construction), we finally got a buyer to submit a very reasonable offer in late May o...

I have had more than my share of disappointment from the Ruby Tuesday restaurant chain.  I live closest to the Gainesville location, and not too far from the Manassas location.  Since these are close, I go there when I want a rather guilt-free meal out (I love a salad bar).  However, I always end...
Ah, the Golden Rule.  The simplest and best way to live.  It shouldn't just apply to people.  It should apply to other people's property too. As Realtors, we are often reminded of how little regard others give to our listings.  From not taking shoes off, to leaving doors unlocked.  It has been a ...

Braemar's residents are on edge since an attempted child abduction earlier this month, and a very specific, and targeted crime that happened just weeks later.  It is important to note, that no one was hurt during either of these episodes, and that they were not break-ins.   However, given the rou...
I was awakened this morning by my phone rining at 6am.  A neighbor called to see if I knew why many police cars were combing our streets.  Everyone around this neighborhood is on high alert since an attempted child abduction in the neighborhood earlier this month. Working from home, I don't wake ...
