The Curb Appeal Says, “Welcome Home”…
…and after visiting, you will say, “I’m home!” After turning into the cul-de-sac, my first thought was about how nice the houses all looked. My next thought after parking in front was how nice the house and the new driveway both looked. After selling houses as long as I have, you get a feeling when […]
One of the Best Locations in Potomac Green?
The fourth floor means that no one is above you, and the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance with incredible sunsets means total enjoyment of your balcony. It’s also nice to feel connected to the community with the view of the grassy common area. You will never feel isolated wondering what is […]
April showers bring May flowers – and flooded basements if the electricity goes out.

Don’t Call Me When You Want to Sell Your House…
…call me 2-3 months before you want to sell. Scheduling a yard sale is something that can be done last-minute: check a few days prior to see what Saturday’s weather is going to be, and give it a go if the forecast is clear and dry. Selling your house, however, requires more planning, as the […]

So – What Is Hail Damage To A Roof?
This is a really good question and one that I never paid much attention to. I figured it would be pretty obvious and hard to miss. I have seen hail damage done to cars and it was pretty obvious. I walked right up to the car and could see the dents that the hail made. […]
