Recently my team and I satisfied another buyer in the Fairfax Virginia area. They even provided a testimonial and a referral of a close friend within weeks of our working together. The search process lasted a little over a day when this gem surfaced. It met their precise criteria and in addition was meticulously maintained offering move in condition to my buyers. They instantly fell in love. Fortunately the stars were aligned and the seller was happy to negotiate a lower price and coordinate move dates to accommodate my buyers current lease demands. We settled in a few short week with a rent back. Today the new owners couldn't be happier!         Whether youre looking for townhouses or single family home or a fee simple condominium we can help.

Old Town Fairfax has a new bistro and wine retailer you have to check out. The Wine House is located at 3950 University Drive, #212. You can also check out their website www.winehouseonline.com. One thing that caught my eye is they offer free wine tasting at 5pm Mon-Sat.  Their food has been described as Light european fare. You can either dine in or buy wine to enjoy at home.

I wanted to let everyone know that a favorite local establishment, the Austin Grill, has opened a new grab-and-go restaurant in downtown Fairfax. It's apparently been open for a few months, I don't know how I missed it! It's the Austin Grill Custom Burrito Shop and is located at 3955 Chain Bridge Road. Check out their menu at www.austingrill.com. They are going for a similiar concept to Chipotle. Another notable point is the location is run on green energy.
