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.

How can we help you?
