Having lived in Northern Virginia since 1964, both in Loudoun County and Fairfax County, and selling real estate since 1987, I am very familiar with the area. Going to high school and college in the area, as well as raising a family of athletes that competed all over Northern Virginia, has also made me familiar with these areas.
I have seen all the ups and downs of real estate in my 28 years of experience, and I have worked with countless buyers and sellers in the Northern Virginia area. My motto is “Experience Sells”- I believe in informed buyers and sellers.
I actively engage in investment real estate, and I have experience in building and renovating homes; both of which have given me tremendous insight into the process. I custom built my own home, have renovated investment townhouses, and have even renovated a vacation home in Italy!
Enjoying the business and the people I work with is very important to me, and because of this, I offer each of my clients personal and individualized service. Real Estate is not just “showing homes,” but the entire process, from the first meeting to the successful closing. I actually believe that it starts before that first meeting – with a thorough knowledge of the marketplace, understanding and structuring contracts, preventing the pitfalls, knowing the players, experiencing the historical market ups and downs, understanding negotiations, and keeping up with changes in the financial markets. I take pride in the fact that I have mastered these skills, and I have been able to enjoy my clients over the past 28 years because of that knowledge.
