West Springfield, Virginia is a quiet little "bedroom community" west of I-95 and the infamous "Mixing Bowl". In the 13 years I've lived here, one thing I've always lamented is the lack of really good restaurants in the area. Austin Grill has been a staple here for years, and while the happy hour...
When is a FSBO not really a FSBO? This morning, I noticed some handwritten directional signs (signs pointing toward a house for sale) indicating that there was a 4BR/2.5 BA FSBO home for sale on my street. The signs listed a number with an extension. In tiny almost illegible letters, the sign als...

Alot of agents don't do rentals. After 9 years in the biz, I still work with rental clients to find their ideal rental property. The reasons to rent are myriad, so I don't pressure rental customers to purchase a home. I do ask them if they've thought about it, and with today's low interest rates,...
Today I am featuring Guest Writer Hunter Scott, REALTOR at RE/MAX Allegiance. It interesting to see how some media outlets reported on the latest Fannie Mae National Housing Survey. It is true that the number of people who believe that now is a good time to buy a home dipped 2% since the June rep...
Recognizing today as probably one of the last "best weather" days of the fall, my spouse and I decided to venture out West, as we usually do when its time to "go outside and play". Destination: The Corn Maze in The Plains Virginia. Located just off of  I-66 and Route 601, this working farm promis...
Autumn. The very word conjures up images of changing foliage, hayrides, pumpkin carving and shorter days and cooler nights. I was born in late summer, and my birthday's impending arrival also signaled the start of school new clothes and shoes, and sweaters. Not that I wanted the summer to end, bu...
