The Home Sale Contingency – Wanting to Buy and needing to Sell

January 16, 2019

Home sale contingencies are a reality for many homebuyers across the country.  Considering that a house is most people’s largest investment, it stands to reason that qualifying to purchase what is likely a bigger and more expensive investment, while holding onto your current property, is just out of reach for many people making moderate incomes.  […]

January 9, 2019

Last year, I helped a dear client sell her home that she and her husband had owned for more than 20 years.   He had passed away a few months prior to our discussions and when we first met in August of 2017, I could feel her pain.  Her grown daughter and I walked the house […]

Tariffs, Labor Shortages, and Hip Pain

September 20, 2018

Where the big picture meets the rubber in the road is forever fascinating to me.  When I see my clients impacted by economic trends, my job is to do the research so I can discuss this impact in practical terms and make sense of things like rising costs or construction delays.   In our team meeting on […]

The Head and The Heart

April 24, 2018

I was required to take a much dreaded “public speaking” training that was an intense workshop over the course of 2 days, with a well-known consultant named Joe Takash. I was nervous, I […]

Land for Sale, Deed Book No 1751

March 14, 2018

Though I don’t always love the colder months and I’ve often romanticized the idea of living elsewhere, my love of Virginia is unyielding. Growing up along the GW Parkway and Potomac River, I know I took for granted the proximity to our nation’s history and access to all the historical buildings and land that spreads […]

A Dwellus Mini Movie

February 13, 2018

If someone’s going to come to you with a ridiculously outlandish idea, his name is probably going to be Ryan Zook. You are going to initially balk at the feasibility and think I’ve never done this before! It can’t be done! And then, most likely, 24 hours later, you’ll be almost done making a 2 […]

Uber, Lyft, and Housing Prices

January 18, 2018

I shan’t give away the details, but I was planning my husband’s birthday earlier today and thinking about the logistics of getting to and from the destinations I have planned.  The fact that I know we can get easily to and fro, without looking for parking multiple times or worrying about having too many cocktails […]

Front Door Crush

January 16, 2018

When we moved into our house, the first major project we did was switch out the front doors.  I say “major” not because it was a lengthy project but because it completely transformed the outside of our home, as well as the daylight coming into our home.  For weeks, I had seen the listing for […]
