virginia: Are you at least 55 Years Young or Better? - 04/24/08 10:07 AM
If you are at least 55 years young, then I have the home for you! 
55 YEARS YOUNG?  What if I am 54?  Sorry, unless you or your spouse is at least 55, then you may not buy this fabulous home. 
Why is that?  Well, this elegant colonial is located in one of Northern Virginia’s finest Active Adult Communities, Regency at Dominion Valley. 
What is an Active Adult Community?  In Virginia, “Active Adult Communities” must meet age qualifications.  This means that at least 80% of the units within the community have one resident that is at least 55 or better.  No … (1 comments)

virginia: I've seen a change, but it's costing me time on ActiveRain - 02/28/08 10:13 AM
I've been so unbelievably busy lately, that my time on ActiveRain has been much less. I usually visit AR everyday, in the morning with my coffee, and in the evening with my glass of wine.  But the past few weeks, I'm lucky if I get on here at all.
I really had great intentions of writing all these fabulous Localism posts so that I can increase my presence on the internet.  But that too is not happening.
What I have been doing instead is going crazy and working very long days.  It seems that people finally realized that it is a great time … (13 comments)

virginia: Make Mine Prince William Wine - 02/16/08 11:28 AM
Virginia is full of rich history.  It is famous for presidential mansions and battlefields, but not many people are aware of it’s vibrant Wine Country.  California, Washington, and Oregon are the states that come to mind when people think of US wines.  While not at the top of the list, Virginia is making it’s way into the wine industry and actually getting some recognition.
One of my favorite places to go wine tasting and to enjoy a relaxing afternoon is the Winery at La Grange, located in Haymarket, VA.  Currently the one and only operating winery in Prince William County, this beautiful … (8 comments)

virginia: Victory Lakes Residents-It's all about the Pricing-TIME TO GET REAL! - 11/27/07 07:29 AM
I did some research today on Victory Lakes, a neighborhood I am very familiar with (I happen to live there), to get an idea of what is going on with my neighborhood market.  I was not surprised by the results.  The pricing is all over the map, which seems to be the norm these days.
People can we please get real here?!!!!  This is not 2005 and you can not expect 2005 prices.  The market has changed and if you are going to sell your home in 2007 (soon to be 2008) then you need to price your home for THIS market, … (3 comments)

virginia: Please don't call me about this Listing, unless you are SERIOUS. - 11/20/07 10:11 AM
Stop, don’t look, and please don’t call me about this property anymore. 
I know it is a great price and a beautiful lot, but I have had enough calls on this one and I really don’t want anymore. Yes, it is my job as the listing agent to sell and market this property to prospective buyers, but I am beginning to think that no Serious Buyers exist.  If you’re not going to be serious about my listing, then please don’t call me.
Serious Buyers should not be afraid of steep inclines, trees and hard work.  (We are talking about the top of … (16 comments)
