Today is the first day that commuters are using Metro to commute from Reston!I remember when the last big transportation event, the opening of the Dulles...

It is 4th of July week and the weather is steamy in the DC Metro area. There is also a forecast for a potential storm on Friday (4th of July), so be sure to check the weather forecast and event sites before heading out to enjoy the festivities.

This morning I sat down to read the paper (something I still like to do each morning) and I came upon this article, Millennials consider leaving Washington as the city becomes more costly.  If you don't feel like reading the article, the jist of it is that as they start a family, it is becomi...

I have been doing this for a long time. That said, I spend hours analyzing the data before pricing any listing. I review comps (active, under contract sold), I review Days on Market and I take measure of the activity in the local market. It is part science, part art, and part gut feeling. So how ...
What differentiates a GREAT Realtor from a good one? I have been giving this some thought lately. My office is a new Keller Williams office and many of the agents who have joined are new to the business. Are there ways to know who will succeed and thrive and who will quietly pass up their license...
