va: A quick market update in Stafford, VA (and Northern VA) - 05/29/09 11:25 AM
Yes it is true the market is picking up here in the Stafford, Fredericksburg (and Northern VA) area!  We have run into situations where there are multiple offers on properties and we are having to come back with our "highest and best" offer.  If the property is priced well they are selling and again with multiple offers in several cases.

va: Ride Sharing, "the SLUG LINE", a GREENER alternative in Stafford VA - 11/21/08 06:31 AM
I always found it interesting, the concept of a "SLUG LINE".   What is this you ask?  Well I too, way back when, asked this question when we moved to Stafford, VA from Hoboken, NJ.

va: Yes people are buying and selling in Stafford, VA "IF IT'S PRICED WELL IT WILL SELL" - 10/26/08 10:45 AM
I am just so excited that this month has 4 closings each week and an additional one that just got pushed into the first week of December.  We are very lucky to be working for some wonderful clients here in the Northern VA market, both buyers and sellers, and both realize how important it is to price your home right so that it will sell quickly.  With the higher then average inventory on the market one of the big keys is simple, PRICE..if it is priced well it will sell!

Welcome to everyone!  I just wanted to throw this out there....I know that in this market homes are not moving at the fast pace that they once were but that just means that we can get focused on not just helping our clients buy or sell their homes but we have a chance to also make a difference in our communities.  I always liked the saying PAY IT FORWARD and I do believe that good things come to people who do good things so here is our idea...
