Sadly, Washington DC doesn't have many Greek restaurants to choose from.  We have lots of Italian restaurants, plenty of Ethiopian, a full selection of cuisines from every corner of China, and even several Nepalese. Every time there has been a civil war somewhere in the world which resulted in an embassy closing here in Washington, the chef would open a restaurant somewhere in the city rather than face going home!  But if you have a yearning for moussaka or taramosalata, your pickings are slim! To satisfy that urge for grilled octopus, the Parthenon at 5510 Connecticut is a great place to try in the Chevy Chase part of DC.  Upper Connecticut Avenue, just three or flour blocks south of the Chevy Chase Circle, is a quiet part of the city.  The apartments and condos were built in the later...

I sent out an email a few days ago announcing that I had joined the Chevy Chase Coldwell Banker office. It was so heartening to see the amount of encouraging emails I got back. What also amazes me is how people start remembering friends of friends who are looking to buy property. I got a few of those and truly hope that they are legit. I guess its all about the follow-ups. Still, in just a few short days, I am feeling very encouraged and excited.

  Washington Business Journal - by Jeff Clabaugh Date: Thursday, December 9, 2010, 10:27am EST Mortgage rates continued their month-long climb this week, with long-term rates rising for the fourth consecutive week. A 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.61 percent in the week ending Dec. 9, according to Freddie Mac’s (OTC BB: FMCC) weekly rate report, up from 4.46 percent last week. A 15-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.96 percent, up from 3.81 percent.

Average rates o...
