Are you thinking of moving this year? Which reason would you give?
Today, Americans are moving for a variety of different reasons.
Thinking about selling next spring? Now is the time to do exterior photos. Let's Talk.
It's TRUE! In past years this time of year signaled a down turn in the market. This year however, demand is still strong and is predicted to stay that way into the winter.
Is it your turn to take advantage of the strong real estate market? Contact me for your free home market analysis to see if you would benefit from selling this year.
May all who labor rest.
If you know me you know i am a bit of a health nut. Whole foods, yoga on and off sugar and caffeine...and sometimes a juice cleanse or elimination diet.
This month has been the latter. I have grdaually gone off sugar, red meat, caffeine, and even fruit and dairy. I have a couple of nagging health issues like arthritis and psoriaisis i’ve been trying to eleviate through diet.
The maxim “Let food be your medicine” has been one i adhere to and have found good results with. I do also take supplements though because it is quite hard to get evrything you need just through diet.
On this elimination diet one of the hardest things to give up has been coffee ☕️ And it will be one if the first things I add back in. But I have found a substitute for my morning coffee in this unusual blend.
Slippery elm powder is good for the digestion. Collagen will help keep my skin elastic and my joints moving and the mushrooms are a good prebiotic to feed the good bacteria in my gut.
What health nutty things do you do?

PAINT TIP TIME 🚿🚿🚿

I am madly in love with this color.. Benjamin Moore’s HC-173 Edgecomb Gray.. It’s a go-to gray that's timeless with a modern edge. It is an earthy and organic neutral that is both soft and stylish. I love it so much...I painted it in my own home.

We are watching Barley this week. He is a lovable hunk of dog. Dobby likes him too. They got to know each other yesterday when we were at Barley’s house.
Phew that first hour was non stop!
One hour to go!
Market is still hot, heard a few stories of the competition and losing out on homes. It is a tough buyers market. But not impossible. Every offer I’ve written this year has won or could have won against multiple offers.
If you are in the market to buy let me know i am always up for the challenge.

When Workers Can Live Anywhere, Many Ask: Why Do I Live Here? This was a headline of a recent Wall Street Journal Article.
Are you asking that question? Is there somewhere you'd rather live now that you are working from home?
Give me a call it is a great time to sell as the market is hot. A great time to buy too because interest rates are low like really really low!
Met the appraiser at my listing today. Love this deck and patio.
Practicing safety and social distancing.

And this condo! It is pristine! Gorgeous neutral palette, brand new carpet which adheres to the condo rules. 2 levels with laundry upstairs near bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

These are the cute parts of the 🏠 What you can’t see are the 🦇 in the attic and the moisture in the basement and the peeling metal roof. And there may even be some hidden electrical or plumbing 💩 issues to look out for. That is why it is important to have a contingency period in your contract when buying a house.
Home Inspections are an important part of the process. Even when, maybe especially when, you are buying a home “as-is”. A home inspection is meant to alert you to potential issues so you can investigate further.
Virginia is a “buyer beware” state so be sure you have an agent who can protect and look out for your interests when buying a home.
Even though the market is 🔥 hot and buying a home can be super competitive offers can be written to protect your interests as a buyer.

Tell me your Good News!
🏡I have 2 new listings coming up first week of August. Can’t wait to share those with you!
🏢Reconnected with previous clients to help them find a rental while they transition to their penthouse condo, which will be renovated, in Reston. Love this couple and so excited for them.
🤩 Mid-year Review with my team tomorrow. Excited to review and reset 2020
🛶 Going on Vacation to Lake Anna on Sunday!
Tell me some of YOUR Good News!
It is hard to see but it says “Margaret Bragg Holland ‘Thank You Reston’ since 1979” I went down to @lakeannereston today while my mother, Margaret Bragg Holland, has an MRI. She has these weird little tumors in her spine and on her auditory nerves and in her brain that have caused all sorts of problems for her the past 30 or more years. We want to see how they’ve grown becasue her symptoms are slowly getting worse.
The past 10 or so years have been the worst. But she carries on. She still lives in Reston near Hunters Woods Shopping Center and has round the clock care but is sharp as a whip.
She thanks #Reston because when she moved here in 1979 as a single mom making a fresh start with her 3 children it provided a home and a caring community that my brother amd sister thrived in from elementary through highschool and beyond. My sister has continued to live in Reston and raise her family here.
I was 14 when we moved here so had a different experience. They were some rough years for me but I still think of Reston fondly.
These are strangely addictive. Have you tried them?
