Another wonderful fall week under our belt!

I have been trying to wake up earlier to enjoy the quiet, dark mornings reading, working out, or working on my business coaching due-outs. Investing in myself equates to investing in my clients, family, and friends.

I talk a lot about investing in real estate and your financial goals through home ownership; an external investment is self!

This weekend's outlook for open houses doesn't appear to be slowing. There were many, many more new listings this week.

Please let me know if you find theses Friday updates informative and encouraging.

Here's a quick link to all the juicie real estate fun:

What a week!

Our OCTOBER GIVEAWAY went live (finally) - make sure you check out our EVENTS page - it runs through October 29th.

Busy weekend with an open house, football game, backyard movie night, and hopefully finishing up a little project I've been working on for storage in our home-sweet-home "classroom." I hope to preview a few properties as well as assurance for some sellers on comps later this winter.

PS - If you have not done so already - go ahead and buy the projector and movie screen - I am over the moon excited to snuggle up and watch a movie in our very own outdoor theater this weekend!

Emerald Designer Edition: Warm + Welcoming

If a color pallete could hug you! I love everything about this #emeralddesigneredition from Sherwin-Williams โค๐Ÿ–Œ

I love being inspired - paint is such an inexpensive, transformative solution to a home.


Sherwin-Williams Emerald Designer Edition's Warm + Welcoming palette of warm neutrals is relaxed, comfortable and oh-so-inviting.

Today is the day - the OCTOBER giveaway is LIVE in events - It runs until OCTOBER 29th.

We are excited to give away a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

No limit on entries.

For every piece of happy mail/drop-offs you share you get an entry. That's right for every piece of HAPPY MAIL you share with our community you get one entry!

Check out our EVENT with the link to submit your entries, stories, pictures, and counts.

Oh and of course the document(s) you need to jump start your seasonal happy mail.

Checkout my stories to hear a little bit about why I landed on THIS giveaway.

Yesterday I mentioned that home owners often ask me to come in and tour their homes as they decide what renovations project to tackle. Where can they get the most bang for their buck!

I love the opportunity to help and lean on my interior design experience and know-how. Nerd alert - I love reading product specs; I am fascinated by the details and how it all comes together.

Truth - making decisions about what to update in your home can go one of two ways: very personal or on-style with current buyer wants. Depending on how long you plan to stay in a property, what the comps say, and of course what your style goals are you can expect a different ROI on a variety of updates to areas like the kitchen and bathrooms.

I've got paint fan decks, graph paper, and community comps ready at a moments notice.

Helping home owners not only buy and sell home-sweet-home brings me such great joy. This is not a J.O.B. rather a (great) J.O.Y. ;-)

Don't hesitate to ask me for help when crafting a plan for updates, resale, and everything in between! It takes a village and mine includes incredible landscape artists, roofers, painters, and interior designers that can help you purchase that designer sectional or the perfect piece of artwork.

Do you feel the days slowing down yet, thinking of NEW ways to gather with friends and family as we settle into this (new) normal?

Personally, this time of the year bounces from super busy to slower days with my husband and two boys, crafting memories out of pumpkin "guts" and Spiderman costumes.

Just the other day another agent and I were talking about the fall market feeling a lot like a fresh spring market. Are the days of seasonal markets over as the boundaries and "deadlines" to list quickly after the last sight of seemingly falling to the wayside?

No crystal ball here, just years of historical data and listen to news coming out of other sectors of real estate: New Home Builders. Multi-Use Construction. and Raw Material Traders (Wood/Steel/etc.) are all clamoring on about the future.

Appraisers typically use comps 3-6 months from the dates of your contract date. It helps when they consider current listings and other under-contract properties, but their best predictor of tomorrow is yesterday!

It costs you nothing to look, consider, and tour homes as you craft your tomorrow. I'm an avid previewer of new listings and often get invited in to look at homes folks "might some day sell" because they are curious if they need to do anything else to help sell quickly or putting together a home project list for the next year.

Come along with me!

Let's go "test drive" your future home.

Corners, niches, and pocket doors - oh my!

I loved everything about this little corner in a beautifully staged custom home.

No matter your style, there's a way to stage you home for resale that will appeal to buyers everywhere.

๐ŸŽถ It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!

@littlerockyrunhoa has seen a consistent sales volume for months.

With only 3 active listings heading into October competition remains high. Undoubtedly as a buyer you need to be prepared with a strong offer.

As someone considering selling, you don't have a lot of competition. Interest in LRR remains high!!!

Who ever said bones couldn't be stylish? These bones look pretty spook-tacular to me.

Happy first day of October.

Start your month out strong by knocking a few of these home maintenance items off your list this weekend.

Let the festive posts begin.


Such a great day for my buyers.

Happy dance in an extraordinary market.

When one party understands what the other needs and can deliver on it...you have a ratified contract!!!

I look forward to the coming days as we knock out contingencies like rock-stars.


Fired Capitals Coach Todd Reirden is Selling His DC-Area Mansion for $2,250,000

It is true, Capitals (fired) Coach Todd Reirden is leaving town. He listed his six-bedroom, eight-bathroom house for $2,250,000 on Monday.

Fun fact - "Elliot in the Morning" was the previous owner!

Check out Washingtonian's feature of the property; I love the outdoor spaces and pool.

Breakfast. Lunch. and Dinner.

Happy Taco Tuesday!

Looking out back and see a deck in ill-repair or just non-existent?

If you're considering selling your home don't miss out on appealing to homebuyers by refreshing flower beds with new mulch, edging around your property for crisp look, and adding that extra outdoor space with a patio or deck.

I have proudly been listing homes in Northern Virginia for nearly 6 years and before that helping fellow agents stage and ready their homes for resale.

You're a powerhouse, all four numbers of you. You invite buyers to imagine themselves herein; coming make this home yours. Your perfect, calm and cool when the light strikes - warm and cozy when as the day winds down.

You're agreeable, yep matter of factly agreeable...

"Agreeable Gray" by Sherwin-Williams.

There's a multitude of sources and quotes that highlight the ROI for a fresh coat of paint before listing your home for sale. Neutral, freshly painted home ๐Ÿก is powerful.

Paint is nearly the cheapest investment you can make when getting ready to sell your home; ROI outpacing an 5 gallon bucket and labor by as much as 110%.

No permission needed to settle into your favorite comfy spot.

Happy Fall Ya'll. ๐Ÿ
