Welcome to LoCoMusings and the LoCo Real Estate Team
Thank you for stopping by our corner of the internet!
Hello! We are Heather and Michael Elias. We started our real estate team back in 2004, and launched this site in 2007 to share information about life and real estate in Loudoun County. Since then, the site has grown to include the premiere home search experience for Northern Virginia, along with a ton of buying and selling resources.
We are indeed real people that work and live here in Loudoun. Since 1999, we have lived in Sterling, Ashburn, and Leesburg, before settling in Purcellville in 2006. We’ve raised our four children right here in Loudoun, attending plenty of school activities and coaching quite a few youth sports teams.
We are proud to provide a high degree of professionalism and dedicated customer service to guide you in your home buying or selling transition. It’s our goal to not just help you through a particular transaction, but also to provide the information and insight to help you make educated decisions and reach your homeownership goals across the years.
Mike was awesome to work with on the sale of our home and purchase of another. He was knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and great with his communications. He was quick to get us into properties so we could be competitive with offers. We would highly recommend Mike and his team to our family and friends. 5 star service!

Stress Free Transaction
We used Mike for the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home. First, Mike is very much a family man with a family business. His wife is also a realtor (runs the real estate blog Loco Musings) and together they are a power couple when it comes to local knowledge and making a sale! Our experience with him was fantastic…I had no clue that selling and buying a home in a competitive market could be stress free! When we first met with him, he laid out a plan to sell …

Selling our house through Michael was a very smooth transition.
We thought Michael was very knowledgeable about the comps in our area. He was very thoughtful about questions we had. Very patient and was quick with a response. He is an awesome agent.

Mike is GREAT!
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mike. We were first time buyers who didn’t know anything about the process. We also weren’t sure about what exactly we were looking for at first. Mike guided us through the entire process! He was professional and informative during each and every stage. I’m so thankful for how patient he was while we were just trying to figure out what was on our wish list. He consistently stayed in touch with us about new things coming on the market, and …
