In the November-December issue of the CRS publication "The Residential Specialist" there is an article entitled "Shooting Stars". Several REALTORS® discussed their approach to subdivision videos. One point in particular caught my attention.

Early in September we were jolted by a 5.8 magnitude earthquake which is very unusual in Virginia. Shortly after that Hurricane Irene roared up the Atlantic Coast. Since Prince William County is inland we only experienced strong wind gusts and driving rain
