I can't thank you enough for all of your support in making this an exceptional year. I could not have done it without my family, friends, and rockstar colleagues. Thank you so much to everyone who trusted me to help them in their home journey this year. I look forward to many more years of helping people find their dream homes.
This is a shame. Balls of Glory has been an excellent sponsor of my pals, NOVA Roller Derby. I was also looking forward to Cake or Death, so this is a double whammy. It means the Vintner space is still open though— what do you think downtown Leesburg is missing?

I wish you joy and warmth this holiday season
Thinking of selling? Here are some quick things you should do around the house. I'd also add checking your caulk and grout. It *always* comes up in the home inspection.
bestrealestateblog.com When you list your home, you want it to sell as quickly as possible. But in order for your home to sell quickly, it needs to appeal to buyers. A recent article from Redfin outlined quick DIY home improvement projects you can do to up your home’s appeal—and help it sell faster. Some of the…
I wish you a joyous Hannukah!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to last week's Toys for Tots event. It was a huge success; I can't wait for next year!
When your friend Drew is closing on his house, he chooses the title company upstairs from Dog Money Restaurant & Brewery, and you get it scheduled for the Friday afternoon before Christmas, then that calls for a post-closing celebration! Congratulations to Drew on his first home! I’m so glad I got to go on this journey with you.
This weekend in Loudoun, you can dance the night away with Rudolph, see me in the announcer's booth at the NOVA Roller Derby season championships, or enjoy Purcellville's winter wonderland. Get into the holiday spirit with Jingle Jam at Tally Ho Theater, and party with or without ugly sweaters at The Ashburn Pub and Bear Chase Brewing Company.
I'd love to hear what you're doing this weekend in the comments!
Buyers don't stop looking just because it's cold outside...
bestrealestateblog.com Between holiday travel, holiday parties, and hosting out-of-town guests, the holidays can be a busy time of year. And if you’re selling your home, you might be tempted to take your property off the market and push your home sale into the new year. But, as it turns out, you might want to rethink th...
This weekend in Loudoun, the holiday season is in full swing. We have Leesburg First Friday, and 14 Loudoun - Home of Fa La La is open for business, and I bet Alexa Beichler can hook us up with an event calendar in the comments. You can decorate Pinterest-worthy cookies at Salamander Resort & Spa, or ice skate at the One Loudoun tree lighting. Saturday also brings the fantastic Christmas in Middleburg event, which can't be missed. THE REAL LADIES OF LOUDOUN COUNTY group is hosting a holiday business expo, plus you can join me at The Loudoun County Social Collective networking event at Bar Louie on Saturday, and more!

#2 is definitely an easy trap to fall into.
bestrealestateblog.com There are currently over 16 million self-employed workers in the United States—and as the gig economy continues to grow, the number of self-employed individuals only stands to increase. But even though working for yourself is becoming more common, it still presents certain challenges when obtainin...
Sometimes a fresh start leads you to a mountain-top retreat. I'm so thankful that I was able to find this beautiful Linden home for my client and that she was able to close right before Thanksgiving.
One thing that I love about this job is that every home is perfect for someone. Helping my clients find theirs is immensely gratifying.
I have the best clients in the world 😭 😭
The Pearsalls came to my client appreciation event earlier this week and gave *me* a gift. It's completely unnecessary of course, but as you can see from the photo, they completely knocked it out of the park (see what I did there?😜) They are the absolute best, and I'm so glad we were able to catch up the other night. Thank you so much, Derwin and Tina! You are greatly appreciated.

As I prepare for Thanksgiving with my family, I want to take a moment to share my thanks. I am thankful for everyone who trusted me enough to allow me to assist in their home journey.
I'm thankful for every agent and manager in my office who answered my questions, offered words of encouragement, allowed me to host an open house, gave referrals and let me assist with transactions.
I am thankful for everyone who mentioned me to a friend, liked a post, or commented on a video.
I couldn't have done any of this without the people who are reading this right now, and for you, I am thankful.
Everyone have a relaxing and amazing Thanksgiving! 💕🦃🥧
Sometimes, after months of searching, you walk into a property and it just feels like home. That's what happened on Sunday, and 24 hours later, we had a ratified contract. We knew we were cutting it close, but I asked Tan Tunador if he thought we could get this closed before the holidays, and he said yes! I'm so excited for my client, who will be in his new home in less than a month!
I had a great time last night catching up with past clients at our Pop Pie event. Now today I’m off making deliveries for the ones who couldn’t make it! I’m so glad I found a new podcast to dive into on my drive, @somethingwaswrongpodcast is bonkers! #havepieswilldeliver #lovemyclients #happythanksgiving #realtorlife #callkona @loudounrealestate
This weekend in Loudoun, I have to shout out Andy Hawk, who's playing tonight atQuattro Goomba's Winery. Hawkeye was my high school Journalism teacher, a feat that led to many, many hours spent recapping American Idol, The Office, Project Runway, and more for various internet publications. I'm sure he couldn't be prouder 🙃
Dulles Town Center is also having their Tree Lighting tonight, complete with magic wands. Tomorrow sees the grand opening of The Difference Baker and Bluegrass in Lucketts. Sunday you can make ornaments at Bluemont Vineyard, or take a children's cooking class at Petite Loulou Creperie + Bar à Vins. I'd love to hear what you're doing this weekend!
Do you identify with this? What would make you feel more prepared to take this step (whether you're a first-time buyer or not)?
bestrealestateblog.com For most first-time buyers, purchasing a home is the biggest purchase of their lives—but according to a recent survey, the majority of them don’t exactly feel prepared. A recent article from REALTOR Magazine outlined a survey from first-time homebuyer survey from real estate resource Framework, ...
What a view! I’m touring #Birchwood, a 55 and up community in #Brambleton with some fantastic amenities. Interested in learning more? Shoot me a message!
Median home prices are up in Loudoun, which is great for sellers. But if you're buying, don't get discouraged. We're seeing some amazing mortgage rates, which could help increase your buying power. Curious as to what you could afford, or what your home may sell for? Shoot me a message and let's chat!
Rebekah and I used to skate together for NOVA Roller Derby. She contacted me this summer about selling her cabin. Ultimately, she and her husband opted not to sell, but I was still able to help them start a new chapter with a gorgeous home in Warrenton. I’m so excited that Kevin and Rebekah found something that meets their family’s needs and that I was able to be a part of it — and you may be hearing more about that cabin down the line 😉

This weekend in Loudoun, we have plenty of opportunities to support local businesses while you're starting your holiday shopping. You can visit the Lovettsville Elementary PTO Holiday Bazaar, or go on the Catoctin Holiday Art Tour. If you're looking for entertainment on Friday, look no further than Tales and Ales at Old Ox Brewery. On Sunday, you can also learn more about Native Americans at Franklin Park Arts Center with their Planetarium Show: Native American Astronomy. Wondering what the perfect wine to serve on Thanksgiving is? Vino Bistro in Leesburg has you covered with their Thanksgiving Wine Festival.
Anything I missed? Feel free to leave it in the comments and have a wonderful weekend!
I’ve had a productive day working on my 2020 business plan with Tom Ferry today and meeting virtually to share marketing ideas with other agents. Now I’m getting ready to show a buyer client a home. The days may be long, but I couldn’t be happier. Remember, I’m always here for your questions and referrals!

Enjoy your extra hour, everyone!

Okay, back to real estate. This contract came after weeks of negotiations, and we even walked away at one point. But like the Nats, the deal came back and we scored a "treat" of a ratified contract! Am I mixing metaphors? Yes. Am I thrilled for my client who is going to be starting the next chapter of her life? Also yes! 👻⚾️🍾
#worldserieschamps #halloween #mixingmetaphors #ratifiedcontract #callkona
Sorry, but this is just a fan page for the Washington Nationals now. We’ll resume our regularly scheduled real estate program after we watch all of the celebration videos on the internet. ❤️⚾️🦈

It's a rainy day here in Loudoun. Who's grabbing the umbrella and going trick-or-treating tonight?
My third and final closing for October happened yesterday. This amazing home in the Foxridge, Leesburg, Virginia neighborhood sold almost immediately, allowing my client to start a new adventure in Florida.
There are still plenty of buyers out there, so if you've considered selling, get in touch. I'd love to share what I did to get this one sold quickly and for top dollar, with multiple offers.
Finding a single-family home under $500k in Loudoun County may not be the easiest thing to do, but it is possible. Here's what's out there right now (I'll put some of my favorites in the comments).
If you have questions about any of these properties, please get in touch!
This was a special one. My clients just moved into the area for a job and were renting until they decided where they wanted to live. When they saw this gorgeous Stratford Club Condominium LLC condo with a loft, they were sold-- and so were several other people. We beat out multiple offers and secured it, and yesterday, we closed.
Welcome home, Laura and Steve! 🏣❤️
I adore LCPL, and it’s important that we look out for all members of our community.

It's spooky season! 👻What better way to celebrate than visiting Leesburg's haunted locations with the Loudoun Museum? You can also enjoy the Virginia Wine Festival at One Loudoun, The Aldie Fall Harvest Festival, and watch The Metro Misfits take on the Beltway Betties at NOVA Roller Derby's next home game, where I'll be announcing! I'm also holding an open house this Sunday, so be sure to come out and see me. Have a wonderful weekend!
I'm so excited to be holding an open house for the wonderful Kelly Kalich Ettrich this Sunday, from 12-3. Her listing at 42763 Forest Crest Ct. in Ashburn was snapped up quickly but is back on the market through no fault of the seller. What does that mean to you? You have an opportunity to own this gorgeous estate in a fantastic part of Ashburn. Come see me on Sunday, or let me know if you'd like to beat the crowds and schedule a private showing!
It's every Realtor's favorite day: closing day! The condo market is super competitive, and we beat out other offers to secure this two-bedroom with a loft. It was tough, but definitely worth it. And a huge shout-out to the always amazing Erin Martin, who referred this client to me. Welcome home, Todd!
This is exactly what I needed to hear on a Monday morning! (#3, to be precise 🤣)
There's so much going on this weekend in Loudoun County. We're kicking off October with Leesburg First Friday, a Loudoun United FC home game, and of course, the highly anticipated Waterford Fair. You can also skate to some disco at Bush Tabernacle Skating Rink in Purcellville, run a 10k in One Loudoun, and so much more!

This one was a doozy! These clients wanted a condo in Leesburg... but so does everyone else. We had already lost one in a multiple offer scenario, so I knew that even though I was out of town, we had to make this work. The amazing Bobbi Juneja Desai stepped in and showed it for me, and I wrote up and sent the offer from my phone while I was at the Festhaus at Busch Gardens! It was definitely a new experience, but it worked out and my clients are on their way to becoming Leesburg homeowners.
