I recently returned from a family trip to England for Spring Break. It was a lot of fun. We went to a Chelsea game and toured the Tower of London. We did some brass rubbings and shopped in several neighborhoods and flea markets. We visited family at the shore and road the tube, taxis and a double...
I've recently read several articles discussing the way home buyer behaviors have changed. Many of these articles focus on millennials because they are quickly becoming the largest block of home buyers.  So what is the deal with these millennials?  They prefer properties with metropolitan walkabil...
Has Fairfax County passed the under $300,000 range? At Buyer's Edge, I receive many calls from people who live out of town and are planning to move to the DC Metropolitan Area.

They love looking at the pictures of big and beautiful homes and imagining themselves living in them. No one dreams of paying a mortgage. Or fixing...
I (knock on wood) haven't lost my wallet or had it stolen recently, but I have had my phone stolen while on vacation and it was a horribly confusing process of figuring out what to do first. Suzanne McLaughlin shares her knowledge about what to do if your purse or wallet is stolen in this great p...

Last night I found all kinds of resources I never knew were available to all Realtors. I'll write more about that later.  Today I found this video that my ...
If you have thought about branding your business, you should read this beautifully written blog post first. I was really taken with the description in the second paragraph, but it all rang true for me as well. It might be because I do a lot of thinking about branding, but read this piece for your...
