I suggest you start off reading my latest Newsletter, and then scan the links for previous Newsletter articles that may interest you.


If you are not fully engaged in local real estate you need current information related to the local real estate market conditions. The question is: How do you get local real estate information that is geared to your particular area or another area that you are considering for a within the Washington metro area? The answer is through Long & Foster's Neighborhood News Monthly Reports.

This is one of the most powerful tools that I can provide you to keep abreast of your local real estate market.

Another page that can sometimes help potential home sellers get a general idea of what there home value is "What's My Home Worth". The page includes information fromNeighborhood360, an online program that provides a wide range of demographics, housing data, school info and neighborhood amenities. Take a deep data dive into 155 million street addresses. Word of Caution: While these programs are getting better at estimating a home's current value, they are still not perfect.

4. My Featured Listings

Please take a look and you will seesome of the best properties in the area listed by me and other Realtors in my long & Foster offices in Burke, Fairfax Station, Kingstown, andAlexandria City, including Old Town.

5.Homes Currently Listed for Sale

I know you are interested in seeing all of the properties for sale in our area so I have included aFull Property Search as part of my website. When you are ready to do a complete search of other listings, please use my PROPERTY SEARCH area. Here will you findALLof the "ACTIVE" listings found in the local MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICES. Please be assured that this search includesall of the propertiesoffered by real estate brokers and some for-sale-by-owners in our area. Just list your criteria and you will be off and running. Once you see a property or properties that interest you, please contact me for more details, including a showing at your convenience.

By the way, if you don't find a property that you have seen elsewhere, the reason is that you missed purchasing the property, since it is already "under contract" to someone else. Some of the other sites don't remove property listings on a timely basis when they are Under Contract or Sold. I assume that these sites want you to waste your time looking at properties that have already been spoken for. You won't find this problem with my site since it reflects property changes as soon as listing agents changes become effective and available.


This is just a quick guide to my site. There are other pages that might interest you and even the latest financing and other real estate news.

Now that you have taken a tour of my websites, you should know my real estate experience and why you may want to talk to me.I am your person if you are searching for an "Experienced" Realtor, and you should be at this time. Real estate market conditions have changed, and you need an experienced advisor that has worked in similar markets in the past, whether you are buying or selling real estate t live in or for investment purposes.

Of course my website will allow you to contact me directly for any or all of your real estate needs or that of your friends and relatives. Most of my business is on referrals, and I will commit to provide top level services for any person that you refer to me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you for reading this message and good luck in your sale or purchase of a home or investment property.
