8th & Home

8th & Home Real Estate, done right ... because buying and selling is more than just a transaction. We bring your dreams to reality with e Venture Real Estate.

Looking for someone who really knows how to move homes? After 13 relocations, three of which were international, I have mastered the art of successfully moving from one home to the next. I founded 8th & Home with e Venture Real Estate because I believe strongly that Real Estate is more than just a transaction and you are more than just a number. MISSION: Your experience with 8th & Home will be driven by three core philosophies; service, integrity and trust - with a focus on relationships, collaboration, education, ingenuity and hard work. After years of working in the legal field, and then devoting my time to raising my family and active volunteerism, I entered the real estate industry to not only start a new career, but also to maximize my potential for making a difference. After living and traveling all over the United States and in India and Singapore as well, I can truly attest to the beauty of Virginia as well as the fantastic communities, wonderful arts and culture events and the people … you can’t ask for more. COMPANY OVERVIEW: Regardless of whether you work with 8th & Home to sell your home or to buy a new one, you can be sure we will provide outstanding service from start to finish, utilizing the vast resources, education and experience of the larger e Venture team . Listening is truly a lost art form, yet at 8th & Home we lead with the importance of listening, and listening hard to truly grasp what solutions you need in your real estate journey. Community is imperative to me and I believe it encompasses more than simply what a neighborhood can offer. I have an established network of professionals the world over, and if a referral is simply what you need, I will match you up with a stellar experience. If you are looking to buy locally, I will work tirelessly to explore and investigate on your behalf so that you truly find a community that helps you live your best life. Last but not least, giving back - both locally and globally - is very important as well. I am proud to give both financially - and with my time - to the following organizations: Smiles to Africa, Loudoun First Responders Foundation, Room to Read, Habitat for Humanity, Ripple Effect Images, Ministry to Kenya, Good Shepherd Alliance, and many more. To learn more about what we have to offer, please reach out. Call/text: 571.482.RELO (7356) or let's meet in person. If you're not located locally, let's utilize the benefit of technology and have a Skype call or Google Hangout. Looking forward to stepping alongside you in your next real estate journey.

Mission: 8th & Home exists to provide opportunities for individuals and families to “find home.” We lead with service, integrity and trust. We seek out opportunities to collaborate and connect so our clients have the best relocation experience we can offer. We regularly and consistently give back to organizations in our community as well as globally organizations. We enable others to live their lives, settled and thriving.

“Doors are funny things. Some lead to somewhere exciting and wonderful, while others lead to the mundane and ordinary. Some, because they are gaudy and ornate, usher us into the land of greed and money. But many look unassuming and plain, yet hidden behind their simplicity one can find love; warmth; a cozy fire; a home cooked meal and a beautiful family. It's these doors I search for in life and it's these doors that I shall find.” ― Anthony T. Hincks

Hoarding: How to navigate selling a home

I have had the opportunity to assist several families with selling their home who were impacted by Hoarding Disorder. On first glance at our initial listing appointment, the task seemed daunting. For one specific client, there was only a very clear path through the home, with mountainous piles to the left and right of the path, throughout the home. Stacks of boxes teetered precariously on the shelves and the kitchen table was covered in a pile of spice containers. Empty glass jars decorated the edges of each room and a remarkable tower of record albums greeted me at the front door.

The 8th & Home team doesn't shy away from complicated situations when our clients need help renting, buying or selling. In fact, we are often called specifically TO work through the tough stuff. This is the first article in a series of navigating difficult moments and homeownership.

Hoarding often presents itself as a situation too overwhelming for most real estate agents when a home must be sold. I have had the opportunity to assist several families with Hoarding Disorder when it came time for them to sell their homes and this article shares lessons learned and advice for anyo

9 Things Military Families Want REALTORS® to Understand!! PCSgrades recently polled military families who have purchased a home on active duty and here are their top answers to the question: What do you wish your REALTOR® had understood about your purchase?

1. Our dates change frequently, we promise we have no control over them.

2. Resale value is important, and we mean reselling in 2-3 years not 10+ years.

3. We rely on you to be our eyes and ears. We can’t be there for everything, we need to trust you.

4. This isn’t a forever home: Location, schools, commute times are really important. “Extras” are not as important.

5. We don’t have a lot of time to find a home. Or to close on it. Or to do the walk-through. We need you to do this for us.

6. This may become a rental property for us, so we need to know how the market trends, what hidden costs there may be, etc.

7. If you are helping us sell our house, we can’t leave it staged forever. The packing process is crazy and we have to go when we have to go.

8. Communication is key – throughout the whole process. We have a lot going on when we move, we need to be able to communicate despite time zone differences and work schedules.

9. We may buy sight unseen. We need the truth, up front, all of it.

Military families . . . do you agree??

Omaha, Nebraska - - I'm back! I still know every nook and cranny of your streets and neighborhoods because I grew up here, AND I bring the awareness of knowing first hand what it's like to move (from living all over the world with my family for the last decade) which means I bring an insane amount of empathy and compassion to your real estate journey.
