  This week, I heard from two different colleagues that they had 'let their buyer client go.'  In both cases, they had spent substantial time and resources to showing houses, writing and submitting contracts (yes, multiple) and generally being available to them.   So why would a Realtor® 'fire' a...
It is pretty well known that Spring is the most popular time to buy a Northern Virginia home.  There can be some pretty compelling reasons, however, to consider buying a home in the Fall. 1. Fewer buyers=Less competition. Econ 101...fewer buyers means the competition for each home is less and the...
  I have been listing homes for a long time. I think that my clients would tell you that I am extremely meticulous in what I recommend that they do to prepare the home for sale and I am very methodical (while still being creative) in how I market their homes.   Even with my experience and backgro...

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 becoming t...
This morning I met my sellers to sign their side of a settlement  and then went on to tour 4 Broker's Opens for some other clients. Now I find that Realtors® are generally fairly optimistic in their view of things; after all, who wants to work with a negative Realtor®?  When you ask them 'how is ...
I can't tell you how many times a buyer has called me and said, "I found this house I want to see. It is perfect' only to be told (by me) that it sold 13 months ago. If you haven't noticed by now, a lot of what is on the internet is garbage. And that goes for listings, too. You see, what happens ...
This is a big year for my family. My second daughter graduated from college and my youngest, a son, will graduate from high school and move on to college. As a result of these milestones, I am currently going through a lot of 'lasts' (the 'firsts' will come soon enough, I know). Last night was my...
