I get sick of reading stories like this. Sometimes people are their own worse enemies. How could scenarios like this be avoided? Easy? (1) Don't let anyone pressure you into buying anything, especially if it looks priced too good to be true. (2) The DEA operates a nationwide meth lab database, so...

Another case for staging or selective photography? I got a call recently about a house near the Prince William and Fauquier county line. It's located on a dead end gravel road, and houses are on 2-10 are lots around there, so neighbors don't notice or don't care what's going on just down the stre...

A great way to tour Western Loudoun and meet lots of local people and artists is to plan a day or 2 this weekend to go house to house. You'll see lots of nice views, farms, livestock, etc along the way. Over 60 artists are particpating this year. You can download a map and plan a route to visit t...

I again got a call a few days ...

It would probably be a good idea for every agent that is involved in short sales, every homeowner who is involved in a short sale or foreclosure to read this story that appears in The Washington Post June 16, 2013.  I know many of us have taken a variety of short sale classes, and have gotten a v...

Sad to hear about someone passing away so young. I heard this sad news from facebook friend Tricia Andreassen. Just wanted to pass it along because i figured some of you AR members probably knew her. Looks like her last post on AR was around 2010. Beautiful and industrious lady. Mystery why her h...
