A priority and source of great satisfaction for me is my work with service men and women from all branches of the military. Some members are experiencing their first relocation while others are returning to the area after being stationed elsewhere. For those who live their lives in defense of our country and safeguard the freedoms which are sometimes taken for granted, service members and their families deserve their moving experience to be as stress-free as possible.
I want to be your resource when you begin your long distance journey in search of a new home. I understand the importance of finding the right home quickly and efficiently. For those families with a limited number of days or just one weekend available, I can preview prospective properties, provide updated listings, and do as much legwork as possible to ensure the time we spend viewing houses is productive.
For those eligible for any relocation programs through institutions like USAA, Navy Federal or PenFed, I offer you the best of both worlds. I provide the same or better discounts along with a true location professional and experienced real estate agent. My advanced planning, diligent follow-up and localized knowledge will be an irreplaceable asset to you.
To buy or not to buy? Some of you will only be here 2, 3, or 4 years, and you may not want to return after your next assignment. Is investing in this area a good risk now after what has happened to the housing market over the past few years? I can provide you with the pros and cons, so you can make a better-informed decision. Many military families have found this area to be a good long-term investment since they often come back and there is always a large supply of renters if they need to leave before they are ready to sell.
For those of you who choose to rent, I am happy to help you with that also.
When relocating to the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia area, some of you may experience sticker-shock. Even though the housing allowances are much more generous to cushion the difference in what you have been paying, the idea of buying a $400,000 or $500,000 home can be overwhelming. Recognizing that single-family homes within a reasonable proximity to work and within one’s budget may be challenging; however, there are other options such as spacious townhouses and luxury condos to expand your choices. I will work with you and provide all of the information available so you may decide on which style of home is best for you. I look forward to welcoming you to our area.
