With Fall here and everything "Pumpkin" available, the time for Pumpkin Pies is here! The FOCUS on NoVA Real Estate team popped in on Elissa Shultz, owner of Bagel Buddies in Fair Lakes, to learn her family recipe for the Bagel Buddies annual pumpkin pies. Take a look to learn the secret or just call and order one direct if you're not up to the task.

Back in 2000, my wife and I moved to Fair Lakes here in the Fairfax area. In my opinion, it's one of the best places to live in the US.�

I love the diversity it offers. It offers urban, historic, and beautiful farmland living opportunities, all within a reasonable distance to everything.

There's also amazing local businesses here. Some of my family's favorites are The Guapo's Restaurants, Tony's NY Pizza, First Watch - Greenbriar Town Center, Chutzpah Deli, and Bagel Buddies!

You can see the Shenandoah Mountains and aren't too far from the beaches Virginia offers, as well.

And there is just no better place to be during the fall than here. The colors are beautiful!

The Fairfax area, more specifically Fair Lakes, has a lot to offer to anyone, regardless of where they are in their walk of life.

We've been fortunate to plant our roots here and have 3 amazing kids. This area is a great place to raise a family!

If you are thinking about buying a home here in Fair Lakes, I've put together a list of homes for sale in the area. You can see them here: www.FairLakesHomesList.com

One of the greatest ways we can "Be God's Heart to This Community" during this time is to support small businesses! On Fridays, we want to promote small businesses in our area. Each week, we'll tell you about two different local small businesses.

If you can, today, support a small business in your area!
(If you know of more to add to the list, send us a message.)

1. Bagel Buddies - owned by a former Stepping Stones preschool family (3 kids went through). Located in the Fair Lakes Shopping Center, they are open from 7am to 4pm. Maybe it's too late for today but there is always tomorrow! Visit their website - https://buff.ly/2WfWLYz

2. Weird Brothers Coffee - Located in Herndon, this coffee shop is run by veterans, they roast their own beans, and puts big name coffee shops to shame! And their prices are awesome too! Check them out!

11/10 on the Sriracha & Honey chips. Would eat again. ❤️
The pies were delicious!!!

Family owned and operated bagel bakery in Fairfax. The shop has been in business since 1993 and we have owned it since 2006.

Wow what a crazy busy day! Between the pie orders and bagel orders we were rocking! Have to give a shout out to my amazing staff! They killed it today! There were so many amazing customers who showed them some extra love to boost their spirits after they dealt with so many people who clearly lost their Christmas spirit!
We are CLOSED tomorrow on Christmas day and will reopen Sunday at 8am! From our family to yours, Happy Holidays to all no matter how you celebrate!

This weekend was the most delightful work experience we have had in quite some time. Saturday we were extremely short staffed - one of my boys came in to help out (pic included) - we received several compliments on customer service which to me is one of the best ones we can receive. Saturday we closed our third party delivery options - it was lovely. While it’s nice to reach out to customers who may not come inside - these options always seem to have some glitches and are often very stressful to work with - especially when they take 30%! Thank you to all who visited us this weekend and every weekend ❤️

I always find it somewhat repulsive when another human acts in an unsavory manner anywhere but I find it especially disgusting when that human is responsible for shaping the lives of other human beings whether it be as a parent, grandparent, teacher, leader of any sort. Dear Kelly (last name left out for privacy), it’s never a good idea to call me stupid or act like a fool over something so small when I know who you are because I won’t serve you anymore and your name will be on the “banned list”. I won’t tolerate it and I certainly will not make my amazing staff put up with it either. I certainly hope next year you can find green bagels for St Patrick’s day elsewhere and I really hope that whatever is making you such an unhappy individual gets sorted out soon. Thank you to all of our customers who continue to treat other humans like, well, humans! We love you guys!

Not pictured - 4 dozen eggs. When a customer knows you well enough to know you will take the 4 dozen eggs she accidentally ordered and the extras from her instacart order they told her to keep. The kiddos were thrilled! Windi thank you for thinking of us! The sorbet was the best refresher in the middle of baking pies last week!

To the customer who knew this past week was my craziest all year … thank you for the lovely gift! The staff didn’t tell me who it was but this was such a delightful surprise❤️. And I can tell you a nice glass of wine and a little bit of Christmas cheer was definitely in order!

The behind the scenes no one ever sees. For those wondering why we were out of supreme for the first hour and a half of operating hours that would be because the heat in the oven decided to die right in the middle of our morning bake. I would be one rich lady if I had a dollar for every time I said “if my husband wasn’t handy……”. Luckily it was something he knew how to repair and the service shop had the control panel in stock. Operations can come to a quick hault when it’s the most unfortunate time - for us the busiest week of the entire year! Thanks to everyone for being so patient this morning while we worked to repair our oven! Back up and running!

For those who don’t know one of our morning bakers who happens to be my sister is actually a full time ER Nurse! Today was sandwich busy but not too dozen busy which left us with a decent amount at closing. I called my sister up and she didn’t hesitate to stop back by and drop the leftover bagels off at the hospital on her day off ❤️. Thank you to all those in healthcare for all you do. We appreciate you!

Dear Brett, Probably not the best idea to berate the owner when we have caller ID. You screaming obscenities will not break me, it just makes YOU look bad.
1. When you are given other ordering options if you won’t wear a mask there is zero reason to come inside
2. You may be able to bully the younger employees - I have teenagers - I can’t be bullied
3. I have teenagers - your disrespect will be brushed off - I would rather lose your sale than have you continue to disrespect, me, my family and my business
4. If you test me as you did when i told you I was going call the police if you didn’t leave and said “no you aren’t” - I will and I will give them your tag number.
5. The fact that you are a role model for a tiny human is terrifying
6. The best part of all of this is the father and son behind you who had to listen to your foul mouth got your sandwich on the house
7. At the end of the day I will lock up, go home, and enjoy the rest of my day while you live with the fact that you made a fool of yourself at 8am in a bagel shop because you acted like a two year old
And I want to thank you Brett, because after your outburst frazzled some of the staff and a cream cheese was forgotten in another persons order and he decided to act a fool over it - they were ready to deal with it even when he accused us of “talking about him in the corner” which consisted of me telling another employee to throw in a few crumb cakes for the mix up 🤦🏻‍♀️. And a special thanks to my friend Lynda for guiding that man out when he refused to stop invading my space.
Later in a day a few gentlemen came in with no mask - guess what happened? I told them our policy and offered them a mask if they didn’t have one - and guess what!??? They put it on and placed their order!
Y’all! We offer curbside - if you want bagels and don’t want to mask up take advantage of it! Stop acting ridiculous! I know I’ve said this before - it doesn’t matter why the policy is there. It doesn’t matter what my opinion or your opinion is. What matters is that until you own Bagel Buddies it’s not your decision what the policy is and if you want to change it you can send an email to [email protected] to start discussing purchasing the shop!
I am now off to enjoy the rest of this beautiful weather with my family! Have an amazing weekend everyone!

This is the third Starbucks in the last two weeks I have seen close early. I post this because despite how much it hurts us to close early and how much it stinks to be understaffed - it’s not just us and for some reason it makes me feel a little better about having to do so. When Starbucks closes early you know something isn’t right!
