FISHING IN FAIRFAX COUNTY VIRGINIA, LAKE BURKE IN BURKE VIRGINIA IS A WONDERFUL "FISHING HOLE". POPULAR FRESH WATER FISHING AT LAKE BURKE.  With about 220 acres of lake at Lake Burke, there is room for all.  There is a type of fish for just about everyone in Lake Burke ranging from Largemouth Bass, Muskie, Walleye, Channel Catfish, Bluegill and Crappie.  Lesser known White Perch, Yellow Perch, the huge Redear Sunfish and an Blue Catfish can be caught.  Anglers can fish the many miles of shore or rent a boat and take to the water where the deep water can be reached.  Deeper and colder water are where you're more likely to find Muskie and Walleye.  Of course, in the hot summer of Fairfax County, don't be surprised if the Largemouth Bass have "gone deep" to water with cooler temperatures a...

Ask the residents of Burke Centre and they can tell you.  In 1950 the farming community of Burke was the proposed site for Dulles Airport and due to the efforts of the few families that lived in the area at the time the airport plan was derailed and moved to Chantilly where Dulles Airport is today. Even though they fought and won the battle not to build the airport most of the farm homes and land had been purchased and condemned by the government leaving the area virtually deserted. After the Dulles Airport proposal was killed the area of Burke began to develop. Part of the land that had been condemned was turned over to the newly created Fairfax County Park Authority and became Burke Lake Park. You can still find remnants of Burke Centre's history throughout the area. The Silas Burke H...

It is the never ending debate in real estate.   Agents who have had their licenses for many years think that new agents don't have the experience necessary to succeed.  New agents think that long term agents might not have kept up with how the market has changed. In the end it is the consumer who makes the decision which agent is the best agent to represent their interests. Some buyers and sellers are going to call someone they have worked with before. They trust you and your relationship is key to working together on a successful transaction. For the buyers and sellers who don't have a relationship with a Realtor® they are going to call you for an appointment and decide after they interview you and perhaps a few other agents whether you are the right person for the job. In a tough mark...

It doesn't matter how many times you move each time seems to bring a new set of challenges.  Often the move just across town is the hardest as you think maybe I'll just throw the little things in my car and not worry about wrapping them up. It never fails that is the time you have to hit your brakes and everything goes flying. One of the most important things you can do when you are getting ready for a move is to create a move checklist.  If you are undertaking a "Do it yourself" move start scouring your local Craig's List for free moving supplies.  You might be surprised to find everything you need, except perhaps the tape available for you to pick up close by.Start clearing out your closets and bookshelves of any items that you no longer wear or books you no longer read.  Remember tha...

In today's market selling your house may leave you feeling vulnerable.  Not only is your house a huge financial asset, but you have strangers peering in your closets, appraisers judging your home's value and inspectors noting its flaws. A low offer in the midst of all of this can seem like a personal affront. However, no matter how well you have prepared your house or how certain you are that it's priced correctly; receiving a low offer is a possibility. Prepare yourself ahead of time to not take it personally. Instead of getting angry, do one of two things: Reject the offer, or counter it and move on. If you do decide to counter the offer, try to get as much information as you can about why the offer came in at the price it did. Take a good look at the condition of your property. How d...

In the 1950's the farming community of Burke, VA was the proposed site for Dulles Airport.  Due to the efforts of the few families that lived in the area at the time, the airport plan was derailed and moved to Chantilly where Dulles Airport is today. It is hard to imagine how different the area would be if the government had succeed in their plans.   Even though they fought and won the battle not to build the airport most of the farm homes and land had been purchased and condemned by the government leaving the area virtually deserted. After the Dulles Airport proposal was killed dvelopers realized the potential of a signficant parcel of land only 20 miles outside of Washington DC and the area of Burke began to grow.  Part of the land was turned over to the Fairfax Park Authority to make...

It is happening every day in dark alleys throughout Northern Virginia.   Fun is happening away from the glare of the hot summer sun.  How can it be?  It is easy when you let your eyes adjust to the darkness and spy a group of adults tossing a grapefruit size ball at miniature pins in a game of duck pin bowling or a party full of little bowlers keeping the ball in the lane with the rubber bumpers covering the gutters.  Back in the day bowling alleys had the reputation of being smoke filled buildings with greasy fries and hot dogs as the main attraction.  My dad wouldn't let me go the bowling alley a few blocks from our house because that was where the "Fonz" characters hung out.  Ironically that same Springfield bowling alley eventually became the Long & Foster Real Estate office where I...
