Deborah Wincott Pestronk has been a resident of Northern Virginia since graduating college.... the same year the Mets won the World Series ! Her career has traveled a few paths, among them teaching at Northern Virginia Community College for fifteen years, and, then as a travel agency owner for ten years. Deb loves to communicate with people, to undertand their concerns and desires, to discuss the merits of various alternatives, and then to reach the best solution." My knowledge of the entire metropolitan area, but, especially Northern Virginia is extensive. I've lived in Alexandria City, Fairfax Station and now Reston. I've gone through most of life's stages here...from newlywed to motherhood to children leaving the nest. And, I've LOVED IT ALL in NORTHERN VIRGINIA! I've always been active in my community, serving as a board member in various homeowner associations, as a Little League sponsor and umpire, and currently as an active committee member of the Tennis Advisory Committee to the Reston Association. I can certainly discuss with you the merits of our various parks, advise you which libraries have the most comfortable reading rooms, suggest the most bucolic running paths, chat about the best shopping, or simply mention great places to "chill out." It's a certainty that I have the in depth personal knowledge of the area. That's great, but what else can I offer you as a client."You need to know that each client is treated with utmost respect. I understand that a real estate purchase is very likely the single most expensive .you will EVER enter into in your lifetime.I will NEVER push you into making a instant decision. And, there's a two fold reason for this." (1) I don't personally make a decision impetuously and (2) Prior to looking at homes, you will be educated by me on the home buying process; your needs will be carefully assessed, and you will understand the contract." As a final note,I act as my client's advocate and represent your interests. This will done so in the most direct,forceful,honest and ethical manner. But,please know, that a real estate transaction is a process of business negotiations. It is not a competitive sporting event ." I look forward to speaking with all potential new clients, and hope that we can engage in a fruitful business relationship.
