Cutting Down the Nets

Tiger Champ!

Last week we wrapped up our Western Loudoun Basketball League season with the playoffs. Maddie's 5th grade Tigers team was able to win Coach Castellano his first championship in an exciting 21-18 win over the Cardinals (the first basketball trophy in our house). My 4th grade Commodores weren't so lucky. We fell 13-11 in the first round of the … [Read more...]

Ever Heard of a CSA?

Hydroponic vegetables

About nine years ago Heather began having migraines on a regular basis. After a few doctors appointments and some research on our own, we realized many were being caused by chemicals in our food. If you actually read what is on the label of stuff you buy in the grocery store you might never eat! Now we didn't go all doomsday prepper and start … [Read more...]

To Close or Not to Close…

Woodgrove High School

I know our parents walked to school uphill both ways through two feet of snow, heck I've even shared some of those stories with my kids when they complain about going to school on a questionable day. Last week we had two such days, and either way one side of the county was going to be upset. I want to share what we saw and try to help us all … [Read more...]

Look Back: LoCo Market in 2013

Farm outside of Waterford

2013 was the year of the seller in LoCo as every statistical measure of value increased. A couple of my buyers experienced this first hand with multiple offer situations, but we were still able to find them a home. Probably the most shocking stat was a 21% increase in total sales volume to almost $2.9 billion! That's enough to buy the … [Read more...]

In the last sixty days, 109 single family homes have sold, a 30% jump compared to 2012. Not … [Read more...]
