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. I hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to drop a note.
I guess at this stage of my career, I'm one of the old guys in this business. I recently heard that there are more Realtors in the US than ever before. That's a good economic indicator. When the economy is healthy, people run to sell real estate. Why? Because it's easy money, right? Aaaaa, not so...
I've worn a lot of hats in my life, but the one I wear today is definitely a favorite. I never intended on being a Realtor, or a broker. I've often thought fate chooses our path, and this is definitely one that was chosen for me. My real estate adventures, prior to becoming a licensed agent, were...
For me, thankfulness is enjoying freedom. I feel incredibly blessed to live in this country. I've traveled widely, and personally, there is no better place to live. Sure, we have our warts and foibles. We don't always agree, or even like each other sometimes, but you'll find that in other countri...
For me, thankfulness is a family affair. I've been incredibly blessed to have a great wife, two wonderful sons and a granddaughter I adore and see regularly. I imagine a lot of us are grateful for our families, but for me, it's a deeper thankfulness. I grew up in a pretty disconnected family. My ...
Well, who ever came up with "It's a small world after all," didn't envision what Disney World would become. It is huge (forty square miles huge). My wife and I had the privilege of accompanying my son, his girlfriend and my favorite granddaughter to Disney World yesterday. This was a first for al...
I love to see great things, unexpected things, life changing things happen to other people. I think that is one thing that originally attracted me to the TV show Undercover Boss. In those early shows, the employees who were singled out on the program were met with life altering opportunities afte...
This is my "let's get personal" addition to Brian England's challenge to share our lives with our AR family. I think I've been pretty transparent on Active Rain, but there are probably things you may not know about me. So, let's see where this goes.I have been married for nearly 37 years as of No...
It's OK to unplug. You can't imagine how hard it was for me to write that. If you know me, you know that I'm a hard-charging aggressive business person who is always looking for new, better, more efficient ways to do things. I'm not one to sit still long and if I do, it's because my body has over...

Did you know that one great idea can change your life, and the lives of others? It absolutely can. When I left high school, I wasn't interested in college, and quite frankly, I wasn't mature enough to be trusted with a $40,000 investment that might not produce a dollar. I can only imagine it woul...
