My blog covers whatever is on my mind. It travels the spectrum from Real Estate in Northern Virginia, local events, market reports, neighborhood data, business profiles and personal stories, and once in a while just some random craziness. I hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to drop a note.

I'm off on a long weekend relaxing and enjoying the ocean. During a moment of temporary insanity, I decided to drop by a few of my favorite stores. In the midst of my adventure, it dawned on me that it's Black Friday. I'm sure that should be changed to Black and Blue Friday.  It was entertaining ...

Don't throw those old real estate and political signs away. Re-purpose them. When I started my brokerage, I had a lot of old real estate signs from my three previous broker's offices. What good are they when you start with a new company? Plenty. Rather than buying all new signs, why don't you cre...

I don't believe it's by accident that Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Years form a trilogy of holidays. They are a true American tradition, but when you sit back and reflect on each one, they have a life impacting story to tell us.  Abraham Lincoln ordered that government offices be closed on...

    T'was the night before Thanksgiving, and all through the house, everyone was sleeping, even the mouse. They were dreaming of turkey, potatoes and dressing, macaroni and cheese and biscuits and blessings. Their plates would run over, but they would finish each bite in hopes of returning for s...

Trends take time to form. In real estate, spotting a trend early will help buyers and sellers determine if it's a good time to buy, sell or hold. The Winchester, VA real estate market for new listings is in the early stages of showing a curious trend. Each month, new listings come on the market. ...

I love living in this time because of the technology. The speed at which we can process data is mind-boggling, and I'm sure if you brought a citizen from 1900 into the future, he/she would be completely confused (not that some of aren't too). One of the latest gadgets to hit the market is "Coin."...

"Yes, yes, I'm buying vaginal cream." That's what I wanted to tell the perplexed 16+ year old cashier at the local drugstore. She was eyeing my selection of hygiene products of deodorant, razor blades, vaginal cream and vaginal wipes. She seemed to be stuck somewhere between asking why and bursti...

I would like to add my experience to Lori Cain and Debbie Gartner's recent posts about blogging, or re-blogging posts with copyrighted photos or graphics. Obviously, none of us would purposely re-blog someone's post if we thought we were going to be sued by a copyright holder, but it happens.  Th...

OK, I hate to brag, but Winchester, VA was listed in the 100 smartest towns in the America. Harrisonburg, Charlottesville and Blacksburg (college towns) were also in the top 100.  So, if you're thinking or relocating, and you want to be around smart people, we've got your ticket. Winchester, VA i...
