With the down turn in the real estate market, it is not unusual to see sellers offering up 'incentives' if you buy their house.

Today, two local Northern Virginia papers came out with articles about 'green' remodeling companies which both featured my husband's company, Ardently Green!  My husband, Bob Weatherwax, along with his partners started this company in response to many homeowner requests to help them make their ho...

Now that school is out and the pools are open, it is critical that we all remember pool safety rules.  I was a lifeguard growing up, and I find that to be one summer job I just cannot...

One of my clients had a 'junk room' inst...
Saturday Morning I made my almost-12 year old run errands with me. Our last stop was at the Lake Anne Village local farmers market in Reston.
