      This morning's edition of the Potomac News and Manassas Journal-Messenger notified the public that Marines at Marine Corps Base Quantico will be doing explosive training.  It will be a five day exercise from February 25 to February 29 during the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Since our windows are closed at this time of the year the impact will be minimal, but you may experience some very minor vibration.  If the wind blows to the east the blast will be disbursed out over the Potomac River and hardly noticed. While some may grumble, I welcome the training that prepares our military to further protect us from forces and ideologies that are intent on harming America.

Hidden just across the Prince William County line is the waterfront community of Belmont Bay.  As you cross the Occoquan River take a glance to your left and you will be surprised at what you will see.  A community Washingtonian Magazine has twice picked as one of the "best communities" to live in the DC area sits right on the Occoquan River.   With a variety of choices from detached homes, townhouses, and condos buyers can find just about anything they are looking for.  What makes it even more unusual is the VRE station at the entrance to the community making the commute in to DC a breeze.  The main gate of Fort Belvoir is only 15 minutes away, Quantico is 20 minutes to the south and the Pentagon is an easy commute via easy access to the express lanes, commuter parking lot a mile away ...

What a difference a month makes. We have a buyer client who is shopping for a townhome in Woodbridge, Lake Ridge, Old Bridge Estates, or Westrige under $300,000.     He selected 13 homes to see that fit his wish list. We always call the occupant of each home to tell them when we'll be there to see the house. However, many homes are vacant, so we call the agent. My assistant found out through experience that she must call the listing agent for each house to see if it is still fully active, with no pending contracts. Why? Out of 13 houses our lad wanted to see, 8 of them had one or more offers in various stages of review or ratification. One agent said, "The house is listed for sale at $210,000.  Our best offer is up to $225,000.  If your buyer wants to jump into the fight, just know he n...

The Ryan Homes on-site sales office for Laurenwood Estates closed last year after a successful run, selling MONSTER size homes on 1-3 acre homesites.  Why was Laurenwood Estates such a roaring success?  Location, Location, and Value. Laurenwood is strategically located at the intersection of Hoadly Road and Spriggs Road, giving easy access to any corner of the county via the inter-county connection of new parkways.  Plus, two new grocery store shopping centers just five minutes away. Homes in Laurenwood Estates give you huge bang-for-the-buck, meaning a lot of square footage for the money.  Northern Virginia has traditionally priced homes according to distance from the White House south lawn, not cost per square foot.  Folks from western and southern states are often confused by our hom...

Westridge is a premier community, with homes set among acres of lush forest in Woodbridge. The Westridge Pool and Clubhouse is integrated into a serene lake in the middle of Westridge.  The lake and the pool area seem to merge like a diamond in a piece of exquisite jewelry. Family pool. There are TWO pools at the Clubhouse, separated by a grove of mature trees.  There is a family pool where children and adults can swim, and there is the "Adult Only" pool for persons 21 and older where adults can enjoy some peace and quiet. Adult pool overlooking lake. The clubhouse offers Westridge home owners a gracious, open party room with soaring ceilings, and tasteful decor.    When my family and I lived in Westridge, 1997-2005, we made the party room available to our daughter's horse riding team a...
