    Will it be a Flip or a Flop in LoCo?

    By Michael Elias | September 2, 2015

    A few weeks off from coaching softball and there tends to be a lot of HGTV on in my house. The current programming includes a bunch of renovation shows like Flip or Flop, Rehab Addict, and Fixer Upper. They make it seem easy to find a home in bad shape, spend 2 months repairing it,...

    This Goose is Finally Cooked

    By Michael Elias | June 4, 2015

    For as long as I can remember there have been whispers about Goose Creek Golf Club being turned into a housing community. During my 12 years as the golf professional at Westpark Golf Club I think it changed hands 4 times. Every time a new group bought the course we thought it would be the... Read More

    Coach’s Corner, Where Everybody Knows Your Name

    By Michael Elias | January 30, 2015

    One of my favorite shows growing up was Cheers, a sitcom about a Boston bar and the lives of the people who frequented it. The theme song and tag line of the show was “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”. I think every community yearns for that kind of place and thanks to Rob & Jen... Read More

    CarrHomes Hits a Home-Run with Waterford Creek

    By Michael Elias | January 29, 2015

    We’ve always felt part of the reasoning behind having an estate was to feel secluded. Unfortunately most of the new communities we’ve seen offering 3+ acre lots fall short. Don’t get me wrong, rolling terrain is great for a golf course or a farm but sitting in the middle of a field isn’t my idea... Read More

    LoCo Real Estate Year in Review for 2014

    By Michael Elias | January 15, 2015

    After a strong 2013 which saw sales rise 21% most of us in the real estate industry were expecting a banner year for 2014. It didn’t quite turn out that way, however a strong fourth quarter has us optimistic for a better 2015. Let’s take a look… Our first chart shows a month by month breakdown of the actual... Read More

    Dreaming of Warmer Weather

    By Michael Elias | January 8, 2015

    I was going to write a post about our awesome school system in LoCo but it was a little difficult to come up with something nice after the way LCPS handled this past Tuesday. Instead let’s think happier thoughts and talk about golf, namely my favorite courses and my realistic bucket list. Back in 2005 I went... Read More

    Most Expensive Homes Sold in LoCo, 2014

    By Michael Elias | January 6, 2015

    This is one of my favorite posts to write and always one of our most popular. Only the top seller this year would have cracked 2013’s top 5 but all signs point to a bounce back for the 2015 real estate market. Let’s get to it, here are the top 5 most expensive homes sold in LoCo for... Read More

    Tuscarora Football Has Something Special

    By Michael Elias | December 16, 2014

    I’m a firm believer that youth sports are about a lot more than what happens on the field or the court. They are a great way to teach our kids lessons which can last their entire lives. Things like working hard, learning to lead, and being accountable for your actions. Sure there are other ways... Read More

    I Know A Guy

    By Michael Elias | December 12, 2014

    I’ve probably said it here before but I am a huge movie buff. When we built our house the only thing I wanted was to make sure we had a home theater. Last week Heather and I watched Two Guns with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. It’s about two undercover agents who are trying to... Read More

    There are a number of holiday activities happening this weekend and it looks like it Mother Nature is going to cooperate. If you are feeling adventurous you could probably hit them all: Purcellville Parade, Saturday, Dec. 13th at 12:00 Jingle Jam, Tally Ho, Saturday Dec. 13th at 2:30 & 8:00 Leesburg Parade, Saturday Dec. 13th at 6:00...

    Playing a Round at Creighton Farms Golf Club

    By Michael Elias | November 20, 2014

    I’ve played a lot of high caliber golf courses, Congressional, Pinehurst, Treyburn (that’s Michael Jordan’s club in Durham, NC) just to name a few. It takes more than a gate and a high initiation fee to stand out. Along with perfect conditions the layout must be challenging, the setting spectacular, and the service impeccable. It was...
