     If you were in the Confederate Army you fought in the 1st Battle of Manassas on July 21, 1862 and the 2nd Battle of Manassas from August 28, 1862 to August 30, 1862. However, if you fought in the Union Army these were the Battles of Bull Run.  The Confederacy named battles after nearby towns while the Union forces named the battles after nearby bodies of water. 1st Manassas was the first major battle of the Civil War.  In either case, the Confederacy won both battles, but the second battle was the most decisive.  The notable names leading the Confederate forces during 2nd Manassas were Lee, Longstreet and Jackson (Stonewall).      The picture at the left is of Battery Heights - it has an awesome collection of Civil War artilllery pieces.   Manassas Battlefield National Park is a b...

 Frank and Nancy's daughter Natalie needed to buy her first house.  She picked the GOLD Team 6 years ago and bought a townhome in Beau Ridge Estates in Woodbridge, near Montclair. Several years later Natalie got engaged and needed to sell to move to another state. She picked the GOLD Team again. Last year her Frank and Nancy bought a new home in Bristow directly from a builder.  To sell their Montclair home they picked the GOLD Team, even though they had a satisfactory relationship with the agent they had previously used to buy the house. Here are Frank and Nancy's comments about the GOLD Team's Jim Gilbert:"Jim is competent and thorough. We trust him completely to do the best possible job for us.  Our family has uses him for 2 sales and 1 purchase and will use him again when we buy or ...

  James and Stacey O. owned a newer home in Woodbridge near Manassas. The builder was nearing completion of their new home. Their parents and their adult brother were going to be buying neighboring houses in the new subdivision enabling easy access for grandchildren, cousins and socializing among the homes.  The only trouble was that James & Stacey's existing home had been on the market for months with no offers despite being listed with an established, capable, and reputable local agent.  James & Stacey relisted their home with the GOLD Team and it was sold swiftly.   James and Stacey then referred both their parents and their siblings to the GOLD Team to market those houses.  The siblings house sold and the parents leased their house out.     All three families were able to move into ...

     Oscar Aguilar is a small business owner, an experienced real estate investor, and a Manassas homeowner.     Recently Oscar attended a GOLD Team Open House and decided to buy the home.  As an experienced buyer he requested - and the GOLD Team accomodated - that we write his offer to purchase even though acknowleging in writing that we represented the seller.  After some interesting negotiations the house was his.     Subsequently Oscar asked us to list and sell his single family home in Gainesville, which was swiftly and successfully accomplished.     And now Oscar has referred his brother to us who has listed a Burke single family home with the GOLD Team.     When we asked Oscar why he liked the GOLD Team over his prior agents he said simply, "You worry all the time to give good se...

Existing Home Sales Slowest Since 2002Copyright (c) The GOLD Team 2007The National Association of Realtors recently reported that sales of existing homes fell last month by 0.2 per cent to the annual rte of 5.75 million homes, seasonally adjusted.For a record 12 straight months home prices have fallen.  The median price of an existing home sold in July was $230,200, down 0.6 per cent from July 2006.The depressed housing market and financial markets turmoil in recent weeks have some worried about a possible recession.  The believe of many economists, however, is that the FederalReserve will reduce the overnight interbank rate if financial market conditions fail to stabilize shortly.This interest rate directly affects the rates on adjustable rate mortgages which are a key component of bot...

"7 Single Family and 8 Townhouse Homes in 20111 - Edge of Manassas, So Close to CENTREVILLE"It's a great day to be in real estate!  Today's thriving foreclosure market offers opportunities to many potential owner occupants and investors who choose to work with reputable lenders and knowledgeable, experienced real estate agent teams.  Homeowners who may be having challenges or second thoughts about the aggressive financing they used to buy recently are taking advantage of the still favorable interest rates and increasing buyer interest to reduce their over-commitments and reset their exposure to the increasingly volatile mortgage market.  The 20111 zip code area is on the northern fringe of Manassas, and abuts the edge of Fairfax County's Centreville.  It is an extremely commuter friendl...
