I’m so happy for Tina, BJ, and their two sons. They closed on their new home in Ashburn today, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic for them. Renters their whole lives, we began by seeking out rentals, but in a tight rental market it was difficult to land just the right place for them. So, we went back to the drawing board, got in touch with my amazing lender partner, Glen Bralley with McLean Mortgage Corporation, and got them approved to make the leap into homeownership. Now, they have a game room for their high school son, a home office for Dad, and a beautiful view of the Belmont Country Club. Congrats, Tina, BJ, and family!

Have you been to Ocelot Brewing Company in Dulles, VA?

We enjoyed some tasty New England style IPAs at Ocelot Brewing Company after a great day hosting an open house in Fairfax, VA. They have some of the top rated beers in Loudoun County and shouldn’t be missed. They also attract some great food trucks and today we had some nice brisket and pulled pork from Hog-It-Up BBQ, Professional Competition BBQ Team!

Totally updated home for under $600k in Fair Lakes area of Fairfax, VA

The market is crazy right now for homes under $600k. Especially updated ones with backyards like this one. Why? Simply, there’s not enough inventory on the market but so so many buyers at this price point. I heard so many stories about losing out on competitive offers. The secret to a great offer in this market is to understand the seller’s motivation. Let me help you make a winning offer today!

Lend a Box in Chantilly, VA makes moving convenient and eco-fabulous

Think about all of the things you hate about moving; tracking down or buying boxes, taping and building the boxes, making sure they aren't overfilled, or get wet. It's a giant hassle. Well, Lend a Box with offices in Chantilly, Reston, and Arlington is a no brainer. Lend a Box delivers hard plastic reusable boxes with all that you need straight to your current home. Special inserts are available for dishes, wine glasses, and other specialty items. It really is as painless as moving can be. After your move, Lend a Box will pick up the boxes and you're done. It's simple and eco-friendly since the boxes are washed and reused. Here I am with Stephanie Zimmermann, one of the founders of Lend A Box LLC, who takes us on a tour and explains the process.

Giving back at the Reston YMCA for Keller Williams RED Day

May 9th is RED Day at Keller Williams Realty, Inc. where we renew, energize, and donate our time. It's our day of giving back to the communities where we live and serve. My KW office (Keller Williams Realty, Reston/Herndon VA) chose to work with the YMCA Fairfax County Reston to repaint and power wash the outdoor pavilion and bridge, build raised bed planter boxes outside of the teen center, and general cleanup and repair. Here I am with David Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Reston Y, who explains what this means to the community.

Despite tech boom, Loudoun remains an agricultural leader | WTOP

Did you know Loudoun County is number one for agri-tourism in Virginia? It’s also first for:

- Acres of grapes
- Hops grown
- Honey collected and sold
- Number of alpacas and llamas
- Farmers who are women, Latino, Hispanic, Asian or have military service.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s first farm census in five years shows Loudoun County leads Virginia in several categories. It’s No, 1 for grapes, hops, honey, alpacas and llamas.

Low Inventory, High Competition: Loudoun’s Hot Housing Market

These hot market conditions ring true across the entire region, and not only Loudoun. I’m helping a few clients right now that are experiencing first hand how fast the market can be. It helps to get all of your required paperwork lined up so you are ready to make an offer fast. That property you are thinking about won’t last.

“It’s been a roller coaster.” That’s how Renee Boetticher, a soon-to-be resident of Round Hill, describes the last two years of her family life. It’s a statement that could easily translate to the overall state of Loudoun’s current housing market. Boetticher and her family have been thro...

Thank you all who donated to Keller Williams Reston and Irene’s Prom Closet. It was a beautiful day to remember and share!

And to follow up the pictures from my last post is a video from the same event at Keller Williams.

The moment Keller Williams of Reston gathered TWO ROOMS full of prom dresses and suits for Irenes Prom Closet! These Ladies made this such a special event and i'm happy I got to capture the moment they revealed it all to Irenes Mom.

Hi Guys! Have you ever heard of the Van Gogh Bridge in Reston right at Lake Anne. It’s a quaint simple little bridge with a couple of trees. If you can’t make it in to DC to see the Cherry Blossoms stop by this little area to see is a quiet little oasis tucked away. Sometimes it what is right out your front door. Wanna know more about Reston and the Greater Reston Area....just ask me about selling or buying a house. :)

04/01/2019

Together with my colleagues at Keller Williams Realty, Reston/Herndon VA we collected hundreds of prom dresses and suits to help kids whose families have financial hardships attend their proms. Here’s Maria (Irene’s mom, from Irene's PROM Closet ) collecting the donation. I think she was blown away. Thank you to all who contributed to this worthy cause and for helping to make a kid’s life just a little bit brighter!

Stopped to check out the local Danish real estate while visiting Helsingør, Denmark with the family. You can get a nice modern A-frame style house for a mere 6,000,000 kroner. That’s about a million dollars to live in a beautiful seaside village, site of Kronborg Castle and a short ferry ride across the strait to Sweden. Actually, not a bad price for the pleasure of living in this more than pleasant nation!

If you have ever ridden a bike through Reston on the W&OD trail across Wiehle Avenue you know this has been a long time coming. Thanks to the Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling - FABB for their tireless advocacy!

It takes years to develop and complete critical multimodal transportation infrastructure. FABB needs your help now to identify and advocate for future bike commuting and recreation facilities for a healthier Fairfax.
https://fabb-bikes.org/this-week-in-fabb-2016-2/
Back in March 2016, we promoted a public hearing for a planned bridge to take the W&OD Trail over Wiehle Avene in Reston. That bridge was initially recommended by a task force in 2013, approved by the Board of Supervisors in 2018, and will be completed in 2021.

Why top restaurants are getting rid of stoves (and why you might, too)

Imagine all of the extra counter space you could have without a stovetop. Check out this innovative new induction stove that hangs on the backsplash like a work of art. It could change the way we think about kitchen design in the future.

These burners hang on your wall until you need to cook something, echoing a growing trend among professional kitchens.
