Reston Real Estate: A Lot to Offer for All Kinds of Residents

Most agents go into real estate because they like houses. I fit that category, but I especially like Reston.

Being Reston focused has given me a lot of confidence in what I’m selling. I didn’t always feel that way when I was showing houses in areas that I didn’t know — I’m sure Centreville is a nice place but honestly, I don’t know much about it. I never felt like I was adding much value when I was too far afield.

Herndon, Vienna — no problem, Fall Church, Annandale — I know some areas but not others. Reston neighborhoods I know. I have lived here for decades. I know the home values, the quirks, the tucked-away places, the schools. It’s always a pleasure to show buyers around.

Over the past several months I have been working with a wide variety of buyers. One is a young couple looking for the home where they hope to start a family. The other is a newly single woman with a nearly empty nest. We recently found great, very different homes for them both.

It’s a good feeling when you know you’ve found the perfect place for someone. The diversity of our housing inventory is one of the things that makes the Reston housing market unique.

Another great Reston quality  is the wide range of opportunities to be engaged in the community through service, recreation or just plain old entertainment. It’s great to live in a place where everyone at all ages can have a social life.

That’s why the motto for all ages and lifestyles is “Live, Work, Play and Get Involved,”
